Dethroned Pageant Winner Scores Big, Lands Advisory Position with Team Trump
A pageant winner stripped of her title after old posts triggered liberals has scored a new gig with Team Trump.
Kathy Zhu, a former Miss Michigan pageant winner, is now the newest member of the Women For Trump Coalition Advisory Board. Zhu previously had her title and awards stripped away after some of her supposedly “offensive” tweets were dug up.
Team Trump, the official Twitter account for President Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign, announced the news Thursday, saying Zhu “is a patriot who has continued to stand for American values despite being stripped of her crown.”
Team Trump welcomes Kathy Zhu to the Official #WomenforTrump Coalition Advisory Board! @PoliticalKathy is a patriot who has continued to stand for American values despite being stripped of her crown.
Thank you for your support of President @realdonaldtrump! ??

And it looks as though the leftists who attacked her unleashed a force they had no idea was there.
They inadvertently put Zhu on the warpath, and now she has the support of major Trump allies.

This fact didn’t escape Zhu, who reacted to the news by unapologetically doubling down on her conservative views.
“I am so excited to now be part of the #WomenforTrump Coalition Advisory Board!” she tweeted Friday. “Let’s get Trump re-elected for 2020.”

Zhu’s treatment at the hands of Miss World America pageant officials was horrendous.
“They stripped me of my Miss Michigan title due to my refusal to try on a hijab in 2018, my tweet about black on black gun violence, and ‘insensitive’ statistical tweets,” she tweeted earlier this month.
Miss World America’s State/National/Chief Director accused me of being racist, Islamaphobic, and insensitive.

An email from a pageant official posted by Zhu cited “offensive, insensitive, and inappropriate” posts.
The email demanded Zhu censor herself by removing any photographs or text referencing the pageant.
That didn’t sit well with Zhu.
In a response to the email, she made it clear she wasn’t backing down.
“Do you know what is ‘insensitive’?” Zhu wrote in reply. “What’s insensitive is that women in the Middle East are getting STONED TO DEATH for refusing to obey their husband’s orders to wear hijabs.”
“I am sure you will love to find a ‘woman’ who is cookie cutter perfect and says brainless comments like, ‘I love world peace,'” she added.
With its attack on Zhu, the pageant only created a stronger conservative fighter. Now, she has the tools she needs to take the fight directly to liberals nationwide.
