1st, the mere fact she asked that racist question to Miss Austria was already uncalled for. 2nd, adding insult to injury by making that idiotic comment about our president was a total jaw drop! I wish you nothing but total LOSS in the pageant!!!! Oh! She’s handled by the Araneta’s who is Mar Roxas tribe, that’s why!!!
