The woman found best to represent the country in all things beauty, poise, and purpose, was decided on Sunday at the Miss America pageant. While the event had much of the same glitz, glamour, gowns, and tears as all the years before it, there was something very different about what’s become another politicized stage event.
Miss New York, 25-year-old Nia Franklin as crowned as Miss America 2019 and said after her huge win that she is “part of history.” After a nearly 100 year run, the Miss America pageant that Franklin won was the first to have eliminated the controversial swimsuit portion of the pageant. This decision was made after former Fox News anchor and 1989 Miss America winner, Gretchen Carlson, who is also the most outspoken advocate of the #MeToo movement, was named the organization’s new chairman, according to the Washington Post.
While it’s true that Franklin made history at this particular pageant, her co-workers are calling her foul that she should have never been crowned as Miss New York to begin with before going on to compete for the Miss America title. The shock and upset could seem like jealousy to some, but outraged fans are even going as far as to call her a “fraud” who doesn’t deserve the title.
The Daily Mail reports on the outrage and why angry fans claim the organization crowned the wrong woman:
It’s only been a few days since Nia Franklin traded her Miss New York crown for the coveted Miss America title, but there’s already some outrage about her big win.
After learning that the 25-year-old pageant winner is a native of North Carolina and only moved to the Big Apple last year, some New Yorkers are upset that she was allowed to represent the state in the beauty competition.
‘If you are subletting you don’t know the first thing about living in New York,’ Brooklyn hairstylist Jenna Pitocco told the New York Post. ‘If you have only been here for like five minutes, you don’t know s***.’
Twitter user Marcia Lorraine posted: ‘Is Nia Franklin from New York or Winston cause I’m confused….’
A North Carolina radio host didn’t seem fazed that Franklin was representing the Big Apple.
‘Dear New York, you’re welcome. Nia Franklin technically belongs to North Carolina, so we’ll just take credit for molding the new #MissAmerica,’ Ramona Holloway tweeted.
Franklin was born in Winston-Salem and remained in North Carolina through college. She relocated to Brooklyn after receiving the Kenan Fellowship for New York’s Lincoln Center.
She won the Miss New York 2018 title in January.
During the Miss America competition on Sunday, Franklin was quick to show her support for the Big Apple, saying: ‘I have New York grit. As a New Yorker, I understand what it means to work hard’.
The beauty queen reiterated those sentiments during an interview on Monday with the Post. While Franklin understands why some people may be upset she’s not a native New Yorker, the classically trained opera singer said she’s proud to represent the state.
‘Even though I wasn’t born in New York, I feel like I’ve always had grit. Moving to New York right after receiving my master’s degree really solidified the grit that I have,’ she said.
‘People always say the first year in New York is the hardest. I celebrated my (first) anniversary June 26 and I’m really proud of that.’
Franklin moved to Brooklyn in June 2017 and went on to win Miss Five Boroughs before becoming Miss New York.
According to Miss America’s residency rules, contestants must reside, work or attend school in a state for at least six months before they can represent it.
Mallory Hagan, an Alabama native who won Miss America 2013 as Miss New York, said the lax residency rules are designed to help young women who want to expand their horizons and isn’t necessarily about growing up in the state the competitor represents.
‘The rules about residency and work requirements are meant specifically for young women who may go out of state for college or move for a job,’ she said.
Judith Ann Graham, who was Miss New York in 1972, said Franklin rose to the occasion to represent New York in the competition.
‘New York is edgier – and we have the best of pretty much everybody. But it’s not every Miss New York that can step into those shoes. Nia happens to be one of them,’ she said.
Franklin is not the first transplant to represent her new state and since it’s actually within the rules to do so, it sounds like maybe natives proud of their state and roots just don’t feel that she’s earned the right to call herself a real New Yorker yet.

Alyssa Milano Struggles To Believe Jussie Smollett Would Commit MAGA Hate Hoax
Well…it seems whiny Celebrity Alyssa Milano is having a hard time believing that Jussie Smollett would actually fake a hate crime attack, wondering who “could be that hurtful.”
“If that man staged his own attack he is wrong in so many ways. No one could be that hurtful? To stage this? Right?” Alyssa Milano pleaded on Twitter.
“To fuck with all of us by playing into our weaknesses & make it even harder for victims to come forward?! No one could choose to be that hurtful? Right?! RIGHT?”

According to reports over the weekend, Chicago police now believe that Empire actor Jussie Smollett orchestrated an attack on himself by paying two men to beat him.
“Chicago Police believe Jussie Smollett paid two men to orchestrate the assault. The sources tell CNN that the two men are now cooperating fully with law enforcement,” tweeted CNN crime and justice reporter Shimon Prokupecz Saturday evening.
Earlier Saturday, Fox 32 Chicago’s Rafer Weigel, citing several police sources, reported Abimbola “Abel” and Olabinjo “Ola” Osundairo — the two Nigerian brothers arrested and later questioned by police about the alleged incident — purchased the rope found around the actor’s neck the night of the alleged attack at an ACE hardware store.
CBS Chicago’s Charlie De Mar reports at least one of the brothers bought the rope at Craft Beaver hardware store the weekend of January 25th. The rope was purchased at the direction of Smollett, De Mar, citing sources, added.
Hoaxster Smollett previously claimed that he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack in downtown Chicago in January. The “attackers” also allegedly shouted “This is MAGA country!” during the attack.
When the news originally broke of the alleged attack, many Hollywood celebrities used it to cast blame on President Trump and his supporters.
“Heartbroken and furious reading about the attack on JussieSmollett. I want Trump and all MAGA lunatics to burn in Hell,” actor Billy Eichner said last month.

Faking a hate crime, faking a lynching, in order to frame a group of people you don’t agree with, should be charged as a hate crime! This is how mentally ill the left is. It’s time for lawsuits. Apologies don’t mean anything so we should stop asking for them. These mentally ill folks are hell-bent on destroying innocent lives.
I saw this meme someone had posted recently. Which explains this so well.
“Only in 2019, would a gay black actor, pay Nigerians $4k a piece, to buy a rope, throw it around his neck and beat him up in order to blame white folks. Happy Black History Month!”
Sure explains the mentally ill left well. How sick you have to be to pay people to beat you up so you can blame it on white people. Because you hate white people that bad..
Welcome to the racist left,folks!
Malia Obama’s Secret Facebook Account Reveals How Much She Hates Trump
Can you imagine being brought up with so much hate at such a young age?
Well..it seems Malia Obama’s secret Facebook page has reportedly been found, and it divulges her true feelings about President Donald Trump.
Malia Obama described President Trump as ‘evil’ on her secret Facebook page where she exchanges messages friends including Joe Biden’s granddaughter, Daily Mail revealed.
The Facebook page operates under a pseudonym and does not appear to have been publicly updated since 2017.
Its cover photograph is of a row of pink post-it notes which read: ‘Donald Trump is President,’ ‘This is not normal’, ‘Donald Trump is evil’ and ‘Don’t be complacent.’
Among the comments written beneath the photograph is one by Biden’s 20-year-old granddaughter Finnegan.
She said: ‘Never saw this. I like it.’
There were some other political activity on the page, including a petition demanding action after the shooting at a Las Vegas country music festival left 58 people dead.
Malia is attending Harvard and had moved into freshman dorms in August 2017, a few months after she posted it on her profile.
She had been living in New York City in the months beforehand while interning at The Weinstein Company. Weinstein offered Malia an internship as a favor to her father, Barack Obama.
There are some other personal posts and pictures as well, showing the travels Malia took during the year before starting Harvard University.

Amazing how she calls President Trump “evil”….yet she was interning for Weinstein who has sexually abused many women in Hollywood. The left never ceases to amaze me. And nothing is scarier than when radical leftists have children. They raise them to be hateful human beings. These kids are subject to full-court-press Leftist propaganda 24/7.
Malia Obama is another example of a brainless liberal. Once you’ve declared someone “evil” there are no barriers for anything you do to them. No more analysis or intelligent evaluations to be made.
She has long since joined the ranks of “useless idiots.”
Funny… She doesn’t want to talk about her daddy who financed terror via Iran to the tune of $150 billion dollars.
She doesn’t know the definition of evil. The apple sure doesn’t fall very far from the tree.. this poor soul is just about as dumb as her racist father and mother.
