It’s pageant time again, which means it’s time for another young lady with Vaseline on her teeth and dreams of gaining the prestigious title of Noble Laureate Miss America instead gets to become the laughing stock of the nation by displaying an inability to answer even the most simple of questions like “What did you eat for breakfast this morning?”
When asked by NeNe Leakes (I know) about the disparity between men and women’s pay and what it says about our society, Miss Utah, Marissa Powell, managed to demonstrate perfectly why such a disparity exists yet was unable to actually answer the question; instead giving a bumbling answer that ended with the phrase: “I think, especially the men are … um … seen as the leaders of this, and so we need to see how to … create education better. So that we can solve this problem. Thank you.”
The good news is that while I can’t tell you the name of the girl who actually won last night, I’ll remember the name ‘Miss Utah’ for at least another six hours or so.
