  • Was the Miss Universe pageant disaster really Steve Harvey's fault? [Teleprompter Fail?]

    Steve Harvey took the blame for perhaps the most epic beauty pageant host blunder of all time on Sunday night’s Miss Universe 2015 Pageant, but some are pointing to a backstage Snapchat video as proof the mistake may have been someone else's. A seven-second behind-the-scenes video shows Harvey immediately after naming the wrong winner -- Miss Colombia instead of Miss Philippines -- pointing to a cue card and talking to an unidentified person saying: "The teleprompter said Miss Universe -- Colombia." Snapchat is a social media platform that features user-generated short videos. The video in question looks as if it...

    Donald Trump has a solution to the Miss Universe crown controversy: Share the wealth! "What I would do is make them a co-winner, that would be very cool," the presidential candidate and former Miss Universe owner told Matt Lauer on the "Today" show Monday. Pageant host Steve Harvey made an out-of-this-world blunder on Sunday night by mistakenly announcing Miss Colombia the winner -- before stripping her of the sash and tiara on live TV just minutes later to hand over the top prize to Miss Philippines, the true winner. "What happened to the girl from Colombia is devastating," Trump told...

    You might think at first its no big deal, butt trust me, this is YOOGE!It happened at the Miss Universe pagent (formerly owned by The Donald) in Las Vegas last night. The host, Steve Harvey, screwed up and mistakenly announced that Miss Colombia had won. In fact, she was first runner up and Miss Phillipines was the real winner. Pandemonium ensued. After the crown was finally returned to the rightful winner, Steve had to apologize and explain. Unfortunately nobody understood what was going on as there were very few English-as-a-first-language speakers on stage. That apparently included Steve Harvey as he...

    Are there certain elemental forces in the universe (or at least Miss Universe) that must not be mocked? And is one of those forces the former owner of the Miss Universe contest, Donald Trump? Those that have antagonized The Donald seem eerily to have suffered miserable fates. Just ask Lindsey Graham, Rick Perry, or Jeb Bush whose poll numbers seem to have almost completely vanished after attacking Trump. However, their fates do not seem to have been nearly as bad as that suffered on Sunday by Miss Universe host Steve Harvey.In the first video below you can see Steve Harvey...

    What in the world just happened?! That's what everyone and anyone is thinking Sunday night after watching the dramatic—and by we really mean dramatic—final moments of Miss Universe 2015. At first, host Steve Harvey made it perfectly clear that Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutiérrez was the winner. There were hugs, cheers, flowers, a standing ovation and everything you expect from a happy moment. Things quickly took a turn, however, when Steve stopped the party. "Okay folks, I have to apologize. The first runner-up is Colombia," he explained as the camera panned to Miss USA and Miss Philippine. In other words, Miss...

    It’s a topsy-turvy world when law-breakers — those who illegally enter and stay in the United States — are sacred cows, while those who criticize the law-breakers are ostracized and demonized. On June 16, 2015, when Donald Trump announced that he’s entering the crowded race to become the 2016 Republican presidential nominee, he made some remarks about illegal immigration which brought the wrath of the PC Left on his head. Trump said: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.

The contest is partially owned by Trump.

    The horrific murder of a pretty young woman by an illegal alien at a prime tourist location in San Francisco is validating the argument of Donald Trump on the influx of violent criminals, and causing at least some local media reflection in arguably the nation’s most politically correct city. This morning edition of the San Francisco Chronicle website (which reflects the newspaper’s front page to some extent) gives prominent placement to Trump’s contention that the murder of Kathryn Steinle shows that he’s right. And the digital-only SFGate site gives him even more prominent play, using an unflattering picture. update:...

    Television personality and real estate mogul Donald Trump said in a recent interview that his views on gay marriage are evolving as society's opinion on the issue continues to change, but the business magnate was quick to note that he continues to support the traditional definition of marriage."I think really what you have is a very changing stance, and you see it changing very rapidly. If you go back 10 years ago it's very different [...] I think I'm evolving, and I think I'm a very fair person, but I have been for traditional marriage. I am for traditional marriage,...

    When former President Bill Clinton takes center stage at Univisions upfront presentation Tuesday, it will mark more than just one of his many paid appearances. The relationship between the Clintons and Univision is deep from owner Haim Sabans unabashed support for Hillary Clintons election effort to a partnership between Univision and the Clinton Foundation, to the networks newscasts that have bashed Republicans and, most recently, praised Hillarys new position on immigration putting her squarely in line with the networks stance on the issue. Univision and the Clinton Foundation joined forces in 2014 for a multi-year early childhood initiative...
