One of six Miss USA pageant contestants on Sunday faced a political landmine in her final round question, but said that she disagreed with the release of five detainees from the Guantanamo Bay facility in exchange for one U.S. soldier.

Miss Louisiana, Brittany Guidry, received thunderous applause when she answered the question, which was read by Ian Zierling:

Listen to her response here:

Many on Twitter agreed, according to Twitchy, who compiled these tweets:

In the end, Miss Nevada was the contestant to be crowned Miss USA.

Obama just openly tweets about breaking laws now: ‘I’ll keep doing whatever I can without Congress…’
