They all talk a good game when they’re running for President of the United States, but as the Good Book says, you shall know them by their fruits. And when it comes to Donald Trump, his past actions may be an indication as to whether or not he will take a bold and brave stand for patriotic Americans against the radical gay lobby.
You may still remember what happened to Carrie Prejean, Miss USA California.
During the question-and-answer portion of the Miss USA competition, one of the judges, a “celebrity blogger” (whatever that is) by the name of Perez Hilton asked Prejean how she felt about Proposition 8 and “same-sex marriage.”
Of course, questions of a political nature are typically taboo in beauty pageants but that didn’t matter to Hilton.
It also didn’t matter to Hilton that Prejean gave a very diplomatic answer. She even qualified her answer by saying that it was great that we lived in a country where people in individual states could vote on the matter. Then she added that she personally believed that marriage is between a man and a woman.
The crowd cheered and Hilton became enraged (some might even say unbalanced), it didn’t matter to Hilton that Prejean’s answer was given with poise and kindness. It didn’t matter that Prejean’s answer didn’t necessarily diminish Hilton’s perceived “right” to engage in homosexual acts and call it a “marriage.”
What did matter to Hilton was that Prejean didn’t agree, in totality, with Hilton; and for her blasphemy, she had to punished.
He gave her a big fat zero which may have cost her the Miss USA crown.
But Hilton wasn’t through with Prejean… not yet. That night, being a celebrity blogger, apparently with something of a following, he posted a hateful, rant on YouTube.com. He screamed and called Prejean “a stupid B—–.”
Shortly thereafter, Hilton “apologized,” but hours later he took the half-hearted apology back and called Prejean a “c—.” Hilton even drew obscene images over photographs of Prejean, scanned them, and posted them on the Internet.
Did Hilton suffer any repercussions for his horrendous actions? Did the Donald Trump, the man who tells it like it is, castigate Hilton for his reprehensible behavior? No, not a peep from the Trumpster. As a matter of fact, at the time, Trump even said Hilton would be invited back again to be a judge.
And what about Carrie Prejean? Apparently, denying Prejean the Miss USA crown wasn’t enough.
Miss USA officials in California, after staging a dog-and-pony press event with Trump… after assuring Prejean and the American people that the whole matter was forgotten… dead and buried… stripped her of her Miss California crown too.
And what did Donald Trump do? What did Donald Trump say? The answer is nothing and that lack of a response in defense of Prejean speaks volumes.
