    When a Miss Universe contestant was asked what she thought about President Donald Trump – she understandably looked a little blank. Miss Kenya Mary Esther looked completely shocked when Steve Harvey asked her the tough politics question. “Arguably, no United States president has had a more active first 10 days in office. What are you most excited about and what most concerns you when it comes to the presidency of Donald Trump?” Steve Harvey asked. HER AMAZING ANSWER: "Donald Trump, having been elected as the President of the United States, may not have been the choice of many people living...

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump took to Twitter early Friday morning to go to war with his latest campaign nemesis: former Miss Universe Alicia Machado. During the debate earlier this week, Democrat Hillary Clinton brought up Trump’s past weight-shaming comments about Machado, who was Miss Venezuela when Trump took over the Miss Universe beauty pageant in 1996. Machado, now a well-known actress in Latin America, says Trump once called her “fat,” “ugly” and “Miss Piggy,” among other things. In tweets posted a little after 5 a.m. on Friday, Trump brought up reports indicating that Machado was once accused of driving...

    Mika Brzezinski went on an epic feminist rant on today’s Morning Joe, condemning not just Donald Trump for his comments about a former Miss Universe, but raging against the entire beauty pageant culture in which women are judged on their . . beauty. Mika summed up her intellectual argument this way: “you stupid men.” Brzezinski considers it unfair that beauty pageant contestants are expected to be trim, whereas men like Trump and Newt Gingrich “can walk around as rotund as all get out.” But if those guys had entered the Mr. Universe contest, every inch of their oiled bodies would...

    Oh, well then it's all ok. Earlier, Dan wrote about the fact that the Clinton campaign’s newest anti-Trump weapon, Former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, was accused of being involved in a 1998 homicide. What Dan didn’t mention was that the judge in the case also accused her of threatening to assassinate him if he indicted her boyfriend. Yesterday, Machado appeared on “CNN’s 360 with Gloria Vanderbilt’s Son,” where she levelled a blistering attack against Trump. When she finished, the host decided to ask her about her possible involvement with the murder.

    Moral of the story: Never accept a source supplied to you by the Clinton campaign One consequence of a gym membership is that, for better or for worse, you see TV you would otherwise never see. I would never knowingly sit down and turn on the Today Show. The last thing I need is to ingest intellectual rot that makes me stupider by the second. But when you climb on the elliptical to do 30 minutes of cardio, the machine’s built-in TV doesn’t have MLB Network. Yeah. I know. And this morning, for some reason, Fox Sports Detroit wasn’t replaying...

    The former Miss Universe at the center of a bitter exchange in Monday's presidential debate was accused of aiding a would-be murderer and threatening to kill a judge, it has emerged. Alicia Machado was named by Hillary Clinton as having been shamed for her weight in 1996 by Donald Trump, when she was Miss Universe and he bought the beauty contest, by being called 'Miss Piggy' when she gained weight. The then Miss Venezuela was photographed with Trump at a gym as he spoke about how she 'loves to eat', and she also claimed he mocked her Latino accent, calling...

    Days after The New York Times published a Sunday cover story chronicling instances in which Donald Trump crossed the line with women, a former Miss Universe is sharing how the now-presumptive Republican presidential nominee shamed her decades ago, even going as far as to call her "Miss Piggy" for gaining weight.

    Well then, you must like losing your job to someone in Mexico who will make $3/hour. Union leaders at an air conditioner factory in Indianapolis threatened with losing 1,400 jobs to Mexico said on Tuesday the plants owner expects to pay Mexican workers $3 an hour compared to an average of more than $20 an hour for the U.S. workers. "We have not given up the fight yet," said Chuck Jones, president of the United Steelworkers union local that represents workers at the Carrier Corp plant. "But Carrier has pretty well indicated that the wage differential is too great and...

    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...

The pageant queens donned the barely-there bathing outfits during the preliminary stages of the glittering contest, which is taking place at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Las Vegas' famous strip. As the 81 competitors prepare to do battle for the jewel-encrusted tiara, it seems an eye-watering amount of effort has gone into making sure their tans are the right...

    After acquiring The Miss Universe Organization from Donald Trump last month, entertainment company IMG has announced that Fox will air this year’s Miss Universe Pageant in December. NBC had aired the yearly event the previous 12 years, but cut ties with the organization in June after Trump’s disparaging remarks regarding Mexican immigrants during his speech to announce his run for president. "Miss Universe is a unique, global media property and this partnership with Fox marks a new era for The Miss Universe Organization as a whole," said IMG SVP of Original Content Michael Antinoro in a statement. “As the broadcast...

Trump is mulling a sale after getting approached by several interested parties, said a source close to the situation. NBCUniversal co-owns Miss Universe, which also includes the Miss American and Miss Teen pageants. SNIP
