Miss America 2017 Recap: The Contestants Are Surprisingly Woke

3rd night of Miss America preliminaries set for Friday

Aside from graduating with honors from Brown University, the 23-year-old Miss America victor wants to become the first woman governor of her home state North Dakota.

"It was a big night for Miss North Dakota, #Cara Mund, as she was crowned "#Miss America 2018" in Atlantic City, besting 50 other candidates for the title.

In a question-and-answer session, Mund criticised US President Donald Trump's recent withdrawal from the Paris climate accord, saying she thought it was a "bad decision". This would make her the first elected female governor of the state.

Upon arrival, Laryssa will be excited to share her experience at Miss America, however, due to flight cancellations, she will not be arriving into Monroe today. That's the fear of some on the right in response to how Cara Mund, the new Miss America, and some pageant participants answered questions.

In one of her onstage interviews, Mund said Trump was wrong to withdraw the US from the climate accord aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming.

"There is evidence that climate change is existing and we need to be at that table". Once we reject that, we take ourselves out of the negotiation table.

The 2017 Miss America pageant was not so much about empowering women as it was bashing President Trump.

"I literally don't understand how she thinks taking away confederate statues erases American history, B***h read a damn book", one user sharply criticised on Twitter.

Miss Texas Margana Wood, who was announced later as 4th runner-up, was asked: "Last month, a demonstration of neo-Nazi white supremacists and the KKK in Charlottesville turned violent, and a protester was killed".

Upon accepting the crown, Shields will take on a year of responsibilities in addition to a ton of wonderful perks.
