Miss USA beauty pageant turns ugly as Donald Trump weighs in (Trump to SUE Miss Penn.)
L A Times ^ | 06/07/2012 | Tina Susman

The search for beauty has turned mighty ugly in the aftermath of the Miss USA 2012 pageant.

First, Miss Pennsylvania, Sheena Monnin, claimed the Sunday outcome was rigged and gave up her state crown in protest. Then, pageant officials said Monnin -- who failed to make the top 15 -- had really quit because she opposed competing against transgender contestants, who were allowed into the pageant for the first time this year.

Enter Donald Trump, the co-owner of the Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageant, who denied Monnin's allegations and took a not-so-veiled stab at her appearance during an interview Wednesday on "Good Morning America." "If you look at her ... you'd understand why she's not in the top 15," Trump told George Stephanopoulos as a big screen showed pageant contestants strutting across a Las Vegas stage, blowing kisses to the crowd as they sashayed in bikinis and sparkling evening gowns.

"We're going to be suing her," Trump added.

"You're gonna sue her?" Stephanopoulos replied incredulously.

"Yeah, we're gonna sue her," Trump said, accusing Monnin, 27, of making false accusations of pageant-fixing that were insulting not only to the pageant, but to its judges, auditors and everyone else involved in the event. He added that Monnin suffers from "loser's remorse."

There is a repeating pattern to these, they hold the event then every year some Trumped-up controversy and outrage over something.

They arrange these media events to entertain us. And it works, we are looking at it here.

I had the displeasure of watching a bit of this, just happened to be the swimsuit section of course, and my thoughts were that just about every last one of them needs to eat some dinner, and lots of it.

And the swishy performer who sang with some computer generated voice was utter trash.

I am really glad I missed the question about trans gender pervs, because that would have disgusted me, and had I been asked that question, I would have answered Hell no, that’s utterly disgusting and repugnant, there’s nothing beautiful about it in any way, shape or form.

Trump made a poor strategic move here. He inadvertantly created a sympathy base for the resentful Miss Whatever State.

Before she had none that I can recall and then by trying to possibly drum up support for himself or by telling the truth (if she really is against the transgender hooey) he moved the sympathy to her for protesting the insane idea that transgenders can be part of the pagent. Seems to me based on votes against gay marriage in this country there are more that agree with her statistically than him.

He would have been further ahead by saying she is incorrect and we will be suing her against the false claims she has made. It is fine he claimed she had loser's remorse, but then ZIP IT Donald. You were a head there. Quit there.

My thoughts would have been “Okay, what if the beautiful girl that tickles my fancy (and usually most of them do!) is really a guy?” Ewwww!

I second that motion. A lot of them still defend him when he occasionally utters something that sounds vaguely conservative à la O'Reilly.

He did say she was wrong and he will sue her. I assume you mean he would have been better off leaving it at that.

I disagree. The idea of Billionaire Trump suing little miss PA makes him look petty,ugly and small.

I suppose since he is, in fact, all of those things, it was predictable.

I agree. After the debaucle with Perez Hilton, Trump should let it go. Beauty contests and award ceremonies used to be something our family watched. Now it's about leftist agenda items for both venues and not worth my time.

Ashamedly I used to watch Dancing with the Stars too until they began inserting LGBT people into every show. Seeing the parade of liberals selected each season was bad enough. Their entire agenda being inflicted upon the heartland of America is a huge goal for liberals.

I thought Trump would make a great president to run this country aground. Running up on a reef is better than sinking in the deep. Then I thought Gingrich might actually be able to save the ship. Now I’m back to hoping we run aground. I afraid either Obama and Romney will sink us.

I think donald must like the lady-boys better if he can say this with a straight face:

“took a not-so-veiled stab at her appearance during an interview Wednesday on “Good Morning America.” “If you look at her ... you’d understand why she’s not in the top 15,” Trump told”

They young lady from Pennslyvania, Texas and Florida may be persistent in her pursuit of the crown but she is definitely NOT GUILTY. She may have started a little early but she has gotten better with a few years maturing.

A quick search shows the untruth of trump’s statement.

trump is just an ass in search of relevance.

Allowing sexual deviates and medically created freaks to compete with natural born females is another step down in the idiotic decline of America.

I like curves. A lady needs to be soft in the right places.

Nothing worse than visible bones. Some of them looked plain anorexic IMO.

If you really look at him Trump sort of has that transgendered look.

Although he has worked closely with Sheena Monnin since she won the Miss Pennsylvania USA title in December, Randy Sanders, director of the state’s Miss USA pageant, says he can’t support her recent allegations against the organization that crowned her.

“I found her to always be a very thoughtful person,” he said Wednesday. “I was a bit surprised that she announced so early after the conclusion of the pageant her resignation. I wish her well, but I cannot agree with her reasoning.”

Monnin, of Cranberry, made headlines this week when she accused the Miss USA pageant, which aired Sunday, of being rigged.

She also called the organization fraudulent, lacking in morals and trashy.

“After 10 years of competing in a pageant system I once believed in, I now completely and irrevocably separate myself in every way and on every level from the Miss Universe Organization,” she said.

It was on Facebook that Monnin, who describes her political views as “conservative,” made her first shocking allegations against the Miss USA organization.

In two separate statements, which have since disappeared, Monnin claimed a fellow contestant in Sunday’s competition saw a list of the top five women in the pageant before judging began on the show.

She also called the organization fraudulent, lacking in morals and trashy.

The Miss Universe Organization—which runs the Miss USA competition—quickly denounced Monnin’s allegations as false. In a statement to Cranberry Patch, the organization included an email Monnin sent to Sanders that said she was resigning because she did not agree with the organization’s decision to admit transgendered contestants.

Sanders confirmed Monnin sent him her resignation early Monday morning—less than 24 hours after the pageant ended with Miss Rhode Island, Olivia Culpo, being crowned the winner.

As for who will fill Monnin’s high heels, Sanders didn’t have an asnwer.

Valerie Compeggie, the first runner up in the Miss USA Pennsylvania 2012 competition, already has turned down the opportunity to serve out the rest of Monnin’s reign because it would disqualify her from competing in next year’s Miss USA pageant, Sanders said.

The state director said he also has approached the second and third runners up in the Miss Pennsylvania 2012 contest, but added there is a strong possibly the position will remain vacant.
