Did Kenya’s Candidate Lose The Crown Because She Praised Trump

Young and oh so beautiful, Kenya’s representative to the Miss Universe 2017 Mary Esther Were has had a hard road to the Miss Universe competition. Named as the top 6 of the competition, Mary’s past has propelled her to a future full of promise. Losing her parents at a young age and escaping the clutches of death at age 5, Esther’s story is truly unique.

 

The Miss Universe competition is never without a few dramatic highlights. Last year,  show host Steve Harvey announced the runner-up as the winner, causing confusion among contestants onstage. This year, during the 65th edition of the global competition, Kenyan Mary Esther Were was among the talking points of the competition. During the question and answer session, Mary gracefully walked up to Steve Harvey, only to be asked about Trump’s presidency.

 

The controversial question as presented by Steve Harvey read, “Arguably, no United States president has had a more active first 10 days in office. What are you most excited about and what most concerns you when it comes to the presidency of Donald Trump?” Were answered, “Donald Trump, having been elected as the President of the United States, may not have been the choice of many people living in the United States because of the divided support system for the outgoing President Barack Obama, who has been supporting an upcoming woman President.”

Startled at first, the Kenyan contestant recovered and aired her opinions touching on Hillary winning the majority vote as well as some of Trump’s policies including the Muslim ban that was recently enacted. Esther finished her statement saying, “So, so many people oppose his position. But I feel that once [Trump] took up his position, he was able to unify the entire nation.” Her statement caused a buzz online, with many re-posting her video on social media as comments against Esther being in the majority. According to the Daily Mirror, “Fans were shocked by Miss Kenya’s support for Donald Trump and took to Twitter to voice their confusion.” However, some pondered why political questions were part of the question and answer session in a beauty pageant.

It is difficult to say, if anyone was in the same position how much better they would have handled the question. Miss Kenya lost the crown, conceding to French beauty Iris Mittenaere.
