The question for Miss New York in the Top 7 of the Miss America pageant was simple: What do you think of Donald Trump? Camille Sims gracefully answered the question…and threw some shade at the presidential candidate in the most classy way possible!
After singing her way into the Top 7, Miss New York, Camille Sims, continued vying for the Miss America crown in the Q&A round…and she had a question all the women probably prepared for in some form or another. The gorgeous pageant gal was asked her opinion on presidential candidate Donald Trump, 70, and her answer couldn’t have been more perfect.
“I think he’s a bright reminder of how our country needs to come together,” Camille said. “If you don’t agree with his message, then you need to decide where you stand on this debate. As Americans, we need to make sure that we are celebrating all people from all backgrounds.” Touche, girl!
Oh, and as she gave her brilliant response, she also looked beyond stunning in a red, lacy and sheer ensemble with her hair pulled back in a low ponytail. Can this girl do any wrong?! Earlier in the evening, she wowed in the evening gown and swimsuit portions of the competition, then blew the judges away while singing during the talent section.
Camille wound up being named second runner-up, falling behind Miss South Carolina and this year’s winner, Miss Arkansas. All in all, though, her response to the question about Trump was highly praised on Twitter, as she remained poised and confident in her answer and addressed a controversial topic in quite a classy way. Now we’ll just have to wait and see how Donald responds to this….because, come on…he won’t be able to resist!
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Miss New York’s answer? Do you think her third place finish was fair?
