Donald Trump continues to experience fall-out from his racist comments regarding Mexico.
Roselyn Sanchez, the Puerto Rican singer/actress and star of Lifetime’s Devious Maids, has bowed out as co-host of the Miss USA pageant, citing Donald Trump’s comments in his June 16 presidential-bid speech.
“I was very excited and proud to have been invited to participate in Miss USA, but as a Latina, that is now inconceivable,” Sanchez said in a statement. “Although I am not Mexican, I am Puerto Rican and a proud Latina, and his comments were an insult to our culture. I won’t sponsor anything produced by Donald Trump.”
Univision also announced it won’t even air the pageant.
I support anyone choosing not to associate with Donald Trump but it does remind me of what I call “The Mystery of Assholes.” Why are people surprised when a known asshole does something assholic?
