THE Miss USA beauty pageant didn’t go on without a slip-up. Miss California was almost speechless when asked about the gap between the rich and poor.
Miss California USA 2016 entrant Nadia Mejia was quizzed about social and economical inequality in America, when she nearly went mute when trying to respond.
She was asked: “One of the biggest challenges facing the United States is social and economic inequality. How do we narrow the gap between the rich and poor?”
The question seemed simple. And pretty routine for a beauty pageant. It’s up there with previous questions about finding world peace.
She replied: “When it comes to social and economic inequality, I think that the rich and the poor need to stop being so segregated. I think there is a middle class. I think that the rich need to …”
She then had to stop, as if her mind went blank. She smiled, closed her eyes, and continued by saying: “I think that the rich need to be able to be giving, and I think the poor need to work hard. And I think the middle class need to come together and find an in between.”
