Could Hillary have handled it?
During the 2015 Miss USA pageant that aired on Reelz Sunday — after Univision and NBC both dropped it following 2016 Republican presidential contender Donald Trump’s remarks on illegal immigration — viewers noticed that the contestants were being asked tougher questions than those asked of presumptive 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
“The Confederate flag, excessive force by police and same-sex marriage are all recent, hot-button issues in our country. What do you think will be the next that we need to tackle on a national level?” the judges asked eventual winner Miss Oklahoma USA, Olivia Jordan.
“The United States has agreed to formally reopen its embassy in Cuba. Do you think this change will be a positive one for both countries?” was asked of Miss Maryland USA, Mame Adjei.
That’s a far cry from asking which woman should be on the $10 bill or who the best Hillary Clinton impersonator is on “Saturday Night Live” — a questions CNN’s Brianna Keilar actually asked Clinton.
The Twitterverse mocked the disparity.
The questions being asked to #MissUSA are more challenging then any ever asked of @HillaryClinton

They’re asking the Miss USA contestants tougher questions than Hillary Clinton gets asked.

@scottienhughes you know it’s bad when the #MissUSA contestants get tougher questions than the softballs the press tosses @HillaryClinton

@scottienhughes that’s because #MissUSA didn’t rope off the press like @HillaryClinton does.

@scottienhughes Hillary probably thinks SHE should be the new face on the $10 bill.
