The interesting connection between POTUS and this Kenyan beauty queen
Mary Esther ‘Scarlet’ Were is a marketing Administrator at CNBC Africa/Forbes Africa and she is also the current Miss Universe Kenya.
The show will be hosted by Steve Harvey who made the epic blunder of announcing the wrong winner during last year’s pageant. But it seems that the organizers have put last year’s fiasco and take a chance on him once again in the event that will see American artiste Florida perform.
So I’m sure you are wondering what is the connection between this beauty queen, Miss Universe pageant and the President of the United States Donald Trump?
Well, the Miss Universe Organization which includes Miss USA and Miss Teen USA was once partly-owned by Donald Trump. That was before he was forced to sell it after he made some derogatory comments about Mexicans which drove away broadcasters from NBC and Univision; which is the biggest Spanish-language broadcaster in the United States. Univision and NBC were both broadcasters of the Donald Trump owned pageant.
His rabble-rousing comments about Mexicans were made in his presidential campaign announcement speechwhere he was quoted saying “When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best...They're sending people who have lots of problems. They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists, and some, I assume, are good people."
