Army Officer Crowned Miss USA 2016
The Miss USA 2016 pageant aired Sunday night on 21st Century Fox Inc. (NASDAQ: FOXA) Fox, stirring up public interest in a particularly uncouth question posed during Miss Hawaii’s Q&A session.
Judge Laurie Brown selected the question: “With Hillary Clinton expected to surpass the delegate count needed to win the Democratic party nomination, my question to you is: If the election were held tomorrow, would you vote Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump for president, and why would you chose one over the other?”
Donald Trump formerly owned the Miss USA pageant, causing a bout of confusion among viewers.
All could agree, though, that Miss Hawaii handled the question with tact.
Miss District of Columbia, Deshauna Barber, won the competition. She's a member of the army reserve and now works as an IT analyst for the U.S. Department of Commerce.
Barber hopes to use her profile as Miss USA to highlight the health issues veterans face when they return from combat, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, her bio said.
Twitter was excited to congratulate Barber on the win.
