Donald Trump, the owner of the Miss USA pageant, told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that he’s going to be suing Miss Pennsylvania USA, Sheena Monnin, for calling the Miss Universe organisation “fraudulent” and “trashy” and accusing the competition of being “fixed.””She made a very false charge and she knows it was a false charge,” Trump said on GMA. “She suffers from a thing called ‘loser’s remorse.'”
He called her allegations “totally ridiculous” and said that she should apologise.
Monnin resigned from her title earlier this week.
“If you looked at her compared to people who were in the top fifteen you would understand why she was not in the top fifteen,” Trump said. (Burn!)
Here’s what all the fuss is about. Monnin posted this on Monday on her Facebook account when she resigned.
I have decided to resign my position as Miss Pennsylvania USA 2012. Effective immediately I have voluntarily, completely, and utterly removed myself from the Miss Universe organisation. In good conscience I can no longer be affiliated in any way with an organisation I consider to be fraudulent, lacking in morals, inconsistent, and in many ways trashy. I do not support this system in any way. In my heart I believe in honesty, fair play, a fair opportunity, and high moral integrity, none of which in my opinion are part of this pageant system any longer. Thank you all for your support and understanding as I walk a road I never dreamed I’d need to walk, as I take a stand I never dreamed I’d need to take. After 10 years of competing in a pageant system I once believed in, I now completely and irrevocably separate myself in every way and on every level from the Miss Universe organisation. I remove my support completely and have turned in the title of Miss Pennsylvania USA 2012.
