The person who is not in this slideshow, but arguably had the worst night, was Laura Brown of Harper’s Bazaar. She was a judge, and the question she got handed to ask Miss Hawaii was, essentially, whether she’d vote for Trump or Hillary in the general election. The ENTIRE crowd started booing her — Miss Hawaii dodged her answer, as well she should, as a person’s vote is private and should never be demanded as a passage to first place in a beauty pageant — and the male co-host, Terrence J, had to specify after the break that the Miss USA organization picked the questions and not Brown herself. If I were her, I’d have shouted the names of six of their sponsors’ direct competitors into the microphone and then dropped it and left.
