Miss California USA can retain her crown even though she failed to reveal she had posed in her underwear as a teenager, pageant owner said Tuesday.As much as The Donald did the right thing here, I'm skeptical about his reasoning. In other words, did he let Prejean keep her title after news surfaced recently that Miss Rhode Island USA, Alysha Castonguay, had posed for even racier pictures in a men's magazine, and yet still kept her crown? Surely Trump had to think about the double standard there if he took Preejan's title away (not to mention the risk of a lawsuit). Bottom line, like most of us Prejean did some things while she was young that she probably regrets, but nothing so insane that she deserved to lose her crown. This whole controversy just serves as another example of how the Left will try to bully, smear and attack those they don't like--but this time they lost.
Carrie Prejean appeared by Trump's side as he made the announcement at.
Trump also defended the answer that Prejean gave at last month's Perez Hilton, a celebrity blogger. She said she believes marriage is between a man and a woman.when she was asked her view of marriage by judge
"It's the same answer the president of the United States gave; it's the same answer many people gave," Trump said. "She gave an honorable answer; she gave an answer from her heart."
Trump said he and other pageant officials had reviewed racy photos of Prejean and decided they were acceptable.
"We are in the 21st century. We have determined the pictures taken are fine," he said, adding that "in some cases the pictures were lovely."
After Trump spoke, the 21-year-old Prejean, who was accompanied by her parents, took her turn at the lectern, defending herself against what she described as vicious attacks.
She talked about getting thousands of letters and e-mails from people supporting her and said, about the marriage question, that Hilton had asked her a "politically charged question with a hidden personal agenda."
