At least SOMEBODY finally said it:
President Barack Obama ended up in the middle of an unlikely controversy this morning — the debate over Miss California’s position on gay marriage.
At a press conference addressing Carrie Prejean’s disputed title in the Miss USA competition, pageant owner Donald Trump compared Prejean’s stated views on gay marriage to Obama’s.
“It’s the same answer that the president of the United States gave,” Trump said. “She gave an honorable answer. She gave an answer from her heart.”
In her own remarks moments later, Prejean echoed Trump’s statement, telling reporters: “The president of the United States, the secretary of state, and many Americans agree with me in this belief.”
In the final round of the Miss USA pageant, Prejean told judge Perez Hilton: “I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised.” (emphasis added)
This whole kerfluffle is absurd. Why does anyone really care what a beauty pageant contestant thinks about an issue? She’s not running for political office. Attacking her only gave her a platform to speak from.
The pageant paid for her to get a boob job and paraded her around in a swimsuit, but they’re angry because she had photos taken wearing lingerie. People call her a hypocrite because she claims to be a Christian, but one of the pageant officials criticizing her for posing in her skivvies is a former Playboy centerfold. Hypocrisy overload!
Now today we find out she took some other photos where wasn’t wearing ALL of her skivvies.
You may as well get used to the name Carrie Prejean, cuz she’s gonna be around for a while. She’s famous now. Any bets on whether she’s a contestant on next season’s Celebrity Apprentice?
