Donald Trump: Miss California Was “Unlucky”

Celebuzz / April 23, 2009

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.”
