Donald Trump: Miss California Was "Unlucky"

Donald Trump: Miss California Was

Donald Trump isn't always known as the most compassionate of men, but he's extending his sympathy to Miss California, Carrie Prejean.

The real-estate mogul and head of the Miss USA competition tells Fox News that the pageant runner-up has been unfairly treated because of her answer to a judge's question about gay marriage.

"Miss California has done a wonderful job, that was her belief," Trump notes.  "It wasn't a bad answer, that was simply her belief."

Prejean ignited a firestorm of controversy when she noted during Sunday night's pageant, when she noted, "In my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that's how I was raised."

The San Diego native went on to justify her comment by characterizing it as "biblically correct" on the Today show.

Since then, a raging debate has sprung up over her utterance, with celebrities such as Miley Cyrus and Heidi Montag rushing to condemn Prejean's views.

But the way the Donald sees it, the beauty queen was caught between a rock and a hard place. Calling the gay-marriage question "a bit unlucky," Trump opines that, no matter how she answered, "she was going to get killed."

Have your say in the comments section: What do you think of Miss California's stance on gay marriage?

    Well, they obviously still held it against her, regardless of their sympathy for her which has all the indcations of a 'smoke-screen' for what they were about to do and did....that is, find another way to 'remove her'....Shame on you Trump and Lewis.... you may think its nicely covered up with a 'techical point', but we can see way past that....

    [quote=John K.]Sorry Donald. It was a bad answer. I agree, it was a bad answer. "It was her belief." ... Okay, so what if she said the same thing about interracial marriage, which used to be illegal because the bible doesn't allow it. It's all bigoted discrimination and pure intolerant hatred. She should be grilled over such beliefs in this day and age. Her belief is no different than flat out racism. If she wants to express it, go for it, but don't be surprised when the world at large jumps all over you for your redneck beliefs. >>> Actually, the Bible speaks of not being unequally yoked, and it is in reference to believers marrying unbelivers. Race had nothing to do with it and never has. In fact, one of the biblical patriarchs was married to an Etheopean. Just because some races said their bigotry was biblical didn't make it true.

    Religion is the opium of the masses. You god damn drug addicts. Excuse me, but religion is our constitutional right and we can believe whatever we wish.

    First off, straight women would want to marry men straight men. I know.. I know.. DUH? Well she's a women. What the hell do you think the answer will be Mario? Mario, "Perez", the Judge should have analyzed his own question(s) first and expect two maybe three types of answers. One of them may turn out being opposite of his own so he shouldn't hate because it's not similar to his answer. How ironic it turned out, a gay person being a hater. LOL. The question was setup for fail either way what her answer is but she answered honestly. Judge that yourself. Was she courageous to do so or dumb? Judge that yourself. His questions was like asking, "Do you like Colts to win superbowl or Greenbay". People are going to hate the answer either way she choose just not dramatic. If gays and lesbians expect people to be open minded about their lifestyle, they too should be open to straight people's OPINIONS. It's simple to me, he's a dumbarse hypocrit. Reason why I'm name calling was because he resorted to name calling her in his blog. I only saw on the news. Sure he's a blogger and how else is he to become famous? Gotta cause drama. By the way, he has to use a "famous" person's name instead of his own. What a loser.

    Thank you for Miss California! I commend you for sticking by your values-the world needs more people like you! God does love us all but there is also right and wrong. In our world there is too much gray area! Kudos to you!!!

    She should have kept certain beliefs to herself, its her right to have an opinion about anything but it wasnt the right time and the right place to open up about it. It wasnt smart at all.

    What is important is that she spoke her mind with respect. But then, someone is intolerant just because speaks from the heart. Who is intolerant, someone who speaks her/his opinion or someone who insults the other just because does not think the same way? Can anyone imagine a world where everybody thinks the same?

    Miss Californian gave the exact same answer as Obama. Obama is their god, so he is a genius. Miss California is an ignorant bitch. I can't believe these folks have the nerve to show up here and talk about ignorance or tolerance. Who declared Obama god? Certainly not himself, and certainly not anyone who voted for him. Are you one of those jackasses I keep hearing about?

    All I know is neither Miss North Carolina nor Miss California will win or would have won the upcoming Miss Universe. They both look like beach girls.

    JOHN K: Her answer would have been bad if she had ignored her beliefs and chosen to be "politically correct." I appreciate her honesty and her refusal to compromise her beliefs. The last thing we need is someone who betrays what he or she stands for, in favor of being a butt-kisser. And tell me: what is "politically correct" about telling someone that he or she should keep their opinions or beliefs to herself? Our founding fathers would be livid if they saw what was going on in this country! In my opinion, the people who are attacking Miss California need to back off. The First Amendment clearly states that we ALL have the right to express our beliefs and opinions. That includes people who are not "politically correct." It's perfectly fine to disagree with someone and what they stand for. But attacking them, calling them every name in the book, demanding that they apologize, and throwing a temper tantrum, is taking it too far. I applaud Donald and every other person out there who has chosen defend Miss California and her right to express what she believes in. In my opinion, the villains in this scenario are Perez Hilton (for asking her the question in the first place, and for throwing a temper tantrum and showing his intolerance) and the people who stand by him. And don't you think that people who say we should love and tolerate one another, should actually practice what they preach?

    Why ask the question if the tv show is only accepting a certain response. Since it appears it was only open to one opinion it was just a trick and I will not watch this show again. She had every right to say what she believed was right. What has America come to? Our freedom to believe in what we choose is being taken away from all of these liberals who don't have any principles to live their life by other that what makes them feel good.

    The question was entirely unfair and inappropriate. She has a right to voice her opinion, no matter how unpopular, but she never should have been asked that in the first place.

    hispanicatthedisco said:[quote=Arthur F]Donald is right. Shame on anyone who condemns this girl. She spoke from her heart . We live an era where over progressive liberals want to codemn anybody for conservative or traditional ideas. It's not fair. Just because the majority of Gen Y has thrown their religion out the window - doesn't mean everyone else has to. You may not agree with her - but embrace her answer as her belief. RESPECT her beliefs. Yes, we must tolerate other people's intolerance. Even though the religious right continually tries to legislate its beliefs onto everyone else, we shouldn't say peep about it out of "respect." AMEN! Please, let's leave religion out of this.
