MIAMI, Florida (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Donald Trump can’t handle the truth — that even his beauty queens don’t support his pronouncements about Mexicans and immigrants.
Trump has made illegal immigration the centerpiece of his bid to become the next president of the United States. He not only called for the building of a great wall in the southern border between the U.S. and Mexico, but maintained that Mexico is sending rapists, drug addicts and criminals to America.
That didn’t sit well with reigning Miss Universe Paulina Vega of Colombia. She criticized Trump for his comments, joining the chorus of Latin countries in denouncing the Republican presidential candidate for his racist remarks.
Trump called Vega a “hypocrite” for criticizing him while wanting to hold on to the Miss Universe crown.
Well, Trump, owner of the Miss Universe Pageant, has the last word, just like in his reality TV show, ‘The Apprentice.” He told Vega, “You’re fired!’
In accordance with Miss Universe regulations, whenever the reigning Miss Universe, for whatever reason, is unable to fulfill her duties, the first runner-up becomes Miss Universe. That would mean Miss U.S.A. Nia Sanchez.
But there is a problem.
Sanchez is Latina and is not willing to wear the Miss Universe crown because of Trump’s anti-Latin comments.
So, the Miss Universe title is currently vacant.
But Miss Philippines MJ Lastimosa volunteered to wear the crown if Trump was okay with it.
No word yet from Trump. Stay tuned!
