''Carrie is a beautiful young woman and I wish her well as she pursues her other interests.... I told Carrie she needed to get back to work and honor her contract with the Miss California USA Organization and I gave her the opportunity to do so. Unfortunately it just doesn't look like it is going to happen.''
Donald Trump, owner of the Miss USA pageant explaining that he has ousted Carrie Prejean, the current title holder of Miss California USA. Prejean infamously responded in April to a question about gay marriage from Perez Hilton, the gay gossip blogger. Prejean said she was raised to believe marriage was between a man and a woman. But after being verbally attacked by Hilton over her answer, Prejean went on a media blitz to position herself as the conservatives as a champion against for heterosexual-only marriage.
