Miss Texas Margana Wood didn’t mince words during Sunday’s Miss America pageant, passionately answering a question from People magazine’s editor-in-chief Jess Cagle about Charlottesville.
“Last month a demonstration of neo-Nazi white supremacists and the KKK in Charlottesville Virginia turned violent and a counter-protester was killed. The president said there was shared blame with quote ‘very fine people on both sides’. Were there? Tell me yes or no and explain.”
Wood, a corporate communications graduate from Austin University, said:
“I think that the white supremacist issue — it was very obvious that it was a terrorist attack. And I think that President Donald Trump should have made a statement earlier addressing the fact, and in making sure all Americans feel safe in this country and that is the number one issue right now.”
