Miss Teen South Carolina has a new challenger! At the Miss USA pageant last night, Miss Utah Marissa Powell responded to a question about gender-based income inequality in America with a rather strange fumbling answer, proclaiming the need to "create education better." Immediately after her response was broadcast, #MissUtah soared up to the leading trending topic on Twitter, accompanied by jokes mocking the 21-year-old's incoherence. While amusing, her answer wasn't nearly as disturbing as Miss Alabama Mary-Margaret McCord's defense of the recently leaked NSA PRISM surveillance program, asserting that she would rather have her phone messages tracked than feel unsafe.
Fox News president, Roger Ailes, publicly commented on how CNN correspondent, Soledad O'Brien is named after the prison in Central California, prompting her to shoot back a response, in tweet form, stating that she's named after the Virgin Mary. At least she's not named after Liz Lemon's favorite chips, Sabor de Soledad.
