Follow-up on Ex-Miss Michigan

Filed under: General — Dana @ 3:20 pm



[guest post by Dana]

Here’s a follow-up on the story about Miss Michigan, who was stripped of her title because of what were deemed “offensive” social media posts:

“Team Trump welcomes Kathy Zhu to the Official #WomenforTrump Coalition Advisory Board! [Kathy] is a patriot who has continued to stand for American values despite being stripped of her crown. Thank you for your support of President [Donald Trump],” Team Trump wrote Friday evening on Twitter.

Zhu expressed her excitement about the new assignment:

“I am so excited to now be part of the #WomenforTrump Coalition Advisory Board! Let’s get Trump re-elected for 2020,”

Seems like a perfect fit for both Kathy Zhu and Team Trump.

  4. You know, Dave, I don’t know how she rationalized his creepy pageant behavior…but I know she did.

  5. Ok, so much for that.

  6. so she commented not in her capacity of miss Michigan, I guess only sjw’s need apply, from some corners here,

    Rationalization is one of the sacraments of the Cult of Trump.

  9. Well you know at 49 Melania is too old by two decades to be Trump’s type anymore and Kathy won’t be 49 for another 30 years and Trump is 73 and he says he’s a billionaire and a girl can dream can’t she?

  10. A girl can do a lot more than dream.

    Excellent observation.
    Mine is that Trump is not a racist when it comes to good looking models.

    Personally, I prefer women who look great without all the outfits and make-up and drama, but to each his/her own

  15. Mine is that Trump is not a racist when it comes to good looking models.

    Has he ever dated one that’s not white/European?

    Dave (1bb933)

  16. Dave : Where do you get your mis-information? Trump has dated non/white women since the the 1960s!

    Michael Keohane (947544)

  17. Melania is gorgeous. As pretty a first lady America has ever had.

    mg (8cbc69)

  18. Where do you get your mis-information? Trump has dated non/white women since the the 1960s!

    In the 1960’s and 70s, Trump was actively discriminating against black families looking for a place to live, so I’m a bit skeptical that he was dating black women at the same time, unless you mean “dating” in the “Park Avenue limousine ride” sense.

    The only instance of Trump dating a non-white woman I could find was Kara Young, who is biracial but has straight hair and skin about the same tone as Melania’s.

    Melania is gorgeous. As pretty a first lady America has ever had.

    Yes, she really broke through the glass ceiling for p*rn models.

    Dave (1bb933)

  19. I think she is the only one in that family who has risen to the dignity of her position.

    Now, his first wife, the older she gets the more she looks like a “procuress”.

    nk (dbc370)

  20. I think she is the only one in that family who has risen to the dignity of her position.

    Well, mostly she has just hidden and tried to avoid interrupting her life of well-compensated leisure with any public service, but OK.

    When your husband is a documented wh*re-monger and self-confessed sexual predator, it makes interactions with the press awkward.

    Dave (1bb933)

  21. I haven’t visited the comments section here at Patterico for a long while; I hadn’t realized that it had become a space where every event became an excuse to heap scorn on President Trump.

    It’s an outlet for NeverTrump to release pent up frustrations —without which, many farm animals would be in peril.

  23. 21… Trump owns some of them… from their last post after midnight to their first the next morning.

    Colonel Haiku (2601c0)

  24. heap scorn on President Trump.

    It’s a dirty job, but somebody has to do it, Pious Agnostic.

    nk (dbc370)

  25. No, Dave, no!

    nk (dbc370)

  26. I hadn’t realized that it had become a space where every event became an excuse to heap scorn on President Trump.

    Oh the horror! Heaping scorn, rather quietly and obscurely, on someone with a long history of heaping scorn very publicly on anyone who fails to puff up his ego or serve his interests.

    In Trumpster world, Trump is entitled to infinitely more respect than he affords to practically anyone else.

    Many of the websites I used to read regularly have been taken over by virtually unqualified Trump-reverence, and anyone who voices a critical or skeptical thought can expect a pile-on of name-calling in response. No doubt Pious Agnostic is more comfortable in that environment.

    I hope by “hook up” you don’t mean that he grabbed her, uh, lemon.

    Paul Montagu (dbd3cc)

  29. A cultist made a false claim about President Trump; I asked for evidence to support it.

    None was provided, so I corrected the false claim.

    Dave (1bb933)

  30. Now, his first wife, the older she gets the more she looks like a “procuress”.

    Ew, Ivana has not aged well. That should be a cautionary photo for Ivanka.

    Paul Montagu (dbd3cc)

  31. Did you know that you can graft a cutting from a lemon tree unto an orange tree, and vice versa, and get a tree that produces both oranges and lemons? It’s a trait of citrus trees. In fact, almost all the citrus we eat these days are grown from grafts. The seed-grown root stock produces beautiful wood but pretty miserable fruit.

    And in answer to your question, I still use “hook up” in the pre-Millennial sense. Joined his team.

    nk (dbc370)

  32. Gotta agree with #21 above [Pious Agnostic (b23c36) — 7/28/2019 @ 8:06 am ] that, “…Patterico … had [has] become a space where every event became an excuse to heap scorn on President Trump.”

    Much of what Donald Trump says has been said before by others (many, many times by the Far Lefties/Dem Party/Lame Stream MediaHollyweidrers) and it simply is
    accepted, ignored or yawned at. But then when President Trump says it, because it
    was said by him – it/he gets almost instantly pounced on and condemned.

    Double standard? Hypocrisy? Trump derangement syndrome? Fake news? It has
    become such a double standard – there is little to no standard anymore.

    Examples are legion. Here are two (2) recent examples.

    Flashback: Bernie Sanders Compared West Baltimore To ‘Third World Country’
    https://www.dailycaller.com/2019/07/28/bernie-sanders-baltimore-third-world-country/
    Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar Suggested Deporting Opponents In Old Tweets
    https://www.dailywire.com/news/49816/rashida-tlaib-ilhan-omar-suggested-deporting-ryan-saavedra

    The above examples are illustrative not exhaustive. Again, examples are legion.

    For some time, the double standard became expected from the above culprits (they did it to Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush, Quayle, Gingrich, Ryan, etc. – anything conservative [question mark re Ryan]) – but it is different in kind re President Trump. Recall National Review’s Purple Issue – Against Trump. https://www.nationalreview.com/2016/01/donald-trump-conservative-movement-menace/

    Could it be because he alone has really attacked the Establishment? DC? The Swamp?

    Not only do the above culprits all have TDS, but it has afflicted the never-Trumpers and it readily appears this site.

    Patterico you used to be better than this. GLZ.

    Gary L. Zerman (ab669e)

  33. Patterico is fine. Trump doesn’t need people defending him from the host’s comments at a blog. As President, he has the world’s biggest bully pulpit and all the media hanging on his every word, plus most of the “conservative” websites are eager to defend whatever Trump says and does.

    Trump gets credit here when he deserves it, and he gets criticism for the same reason. It just seems like more criticism because Trump isn’t very conservative.

    DRJ (15874d)

  34. This is a good solution for the former Miss Michigan, and I am glad you saw and posted this, Dana. I think Zhu was treated poorly but life is unfair sometimes. This gives her a better option for her future than one year of pageanting.

    DRJ (15874d)

  35. The left bends over backwards to attack anyone who challenges their right to authority, then years ago it was miss Prejean and her crime think about same sex marriage, we know how cair treats hirsi Ali who has risked death in her previous home in the Netherlands, over ilhan Omar, who has brought no good to this country at all.

    Narciso (a0a0bf)

  36. The right is doing its best to keep up, narciso.

    DRJ (15874d)

  37. But then when President Trump says it, because it was said by him – it/he gets almost instantly pounced on and condemned.

    The idea used to be that Republicans were better/less nutty/more responsible than the Dems.

    That is ancient history, since every insane/ignorant thing Trump says or does is now instantly justified by his cultists on the basis that “well, the Democrats do it!”

    Dave (1bb933)

  38. Even if they wanted to, they cannot the left control so much of the commanding heights in education philanthropy media corporate boardrooms the law, so it seems beside the point to serve as a pale echo.

    Narciso (a0a0bf)

  39. #34 – when you assert that people who disagree with you are afflicted by a “derangement,” you’ve lost the argument.

    Many of those who label others “deranged” will turn themselves into pretzels to explain away the latest idiocy or obvious falsehood coming from their idol. (“He’s just tolling! He does it to provoke a response from the libs and NeverTrumpers! It’s genius!”)

    And if double standards are so horrible, I would humbly suggest that Trumpsters ought not to be excusing and even celebrating in Trump what they excoriate in others.

    Leading Trumpistas express moral outrage that someone would accuse Trump of treason, but they’re unbothered by the dozens of times that Trump, from the powerful position of the presidency, has accused others of treason.

    They find it outrageous that pundits would say mean things about Trump fans, but tell us to ignore Trump’s habitual rudeness or even praise it as a strength. They fail to see the irony of demanding sensitivity and respect toward people who have enshrined self-centered obnoxiousness as a quality of a great leader, and who don’t hesitate to mimic that obnoxiousness.

    Finally, the notion that Donald Trump is righteously Draining the Swamp is hilarious.

    Radegunda (3578a5)

  40. Yes a failure to take a breath, show some perspective, is a sign of derangement.

    Narciso (a0a0bf)

  41. Many of the websites I used to read regularly have been taken over by virtually unqualified Trump-reverence, and anyone who voices a critical or skeptical thought can expect a pile-on of name-calling in response. No doubt Pious Agnostic is more comfortable in that environment.

    Here are some of the examples of “critical or skeptical thoughts” that were posted as comments on a story about a woman who has joined an effort to re-elect Trump, something that she is legally and morally able to do:

    Did she already have her impromptu dressing room interview with the boss?

    Dave (1bb933) — 7/27/2019 @ 3:53 pm

  42. Michigan’s finest!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_MboUXNtu8

    Colonel Haiku (2601c0)

  43. 42 — My breathing is fine.
    Those who reflexively defend everything Donald Trump does, and who insist that his loopiest pronouncements are a higher form of genius, and who get angry over any criticism of Trump, and who divide their moral world into pro-Trump vs. anti-Trump — they are the deranged ones. People in a cult-like mindset never recognize it themselves. They always believe they’re guided by The Truth, and that everyone else has been led astray.

    Those who are outraged when someone attaches the “treason” word to Trump but completely silent about the 25 or so times that Trump has attached the word to others are lacking in perspective — or rather, they are lacking in honesty.

    The people with perspective are those who understood back in 2015 that making Donald Trump the face of their political beliefs would inevitably degrade them, and who understand that Trump cares far more about getting credit than about getting results for anyone else.

    Radegunda (3578a5)

  44. These NeverTrump types are like vampires, or better still, drug addicts. Their entire focus is Trump this or that. They need their fix and the need only gets worse with time.

    Colonel Haiku (2601c0)

  45. 45 — I’m certain that I’ve done fewer Trump-critical posts here than others have done Trump-defensive posts. I don’t post every day. Mostly I go about my life just as I did when Obama was president.

    On other sites I see people pop up regularly to lob insults at anyone who says a critical word about Trump. The reflexive anger against all who don’t revere Trump unquestioningly is weird, and I noticed how unusually emotional and cultish the Trump fandom was during the primaries, before “but Hillary” was a rational argument. Even then, people who didn’t support Trump were painted as anti-American.

    I reserve my democratic right to criticize the president when he behaves in ways that are dishonest, self-centered, peevish, reckless, ignorant, and vile. I also reserve my democratic right to comment on the hypocrisy so often displayed by his unbending apologists.

    Radegunda (3578a5)

  46. 45 — I was quite happy to be able to take a vacation from Trump when I was traveling abroad, and was only once assaulted by his grotesqueness on the TV in a hotel breakfast room. I would be thrilled if he just went away and didn’t assault my consciousness every day.

    Radegunda (3578a5)

  47. “On other sites I see people pop up regularly to lob insults at anyone who says a critical word about Trump.”
    Radegunda (3578a5) — 7/28/2019 @ 12:14 pm

    You’re making this comment in a post where insults are lobbed at Ms. Zhu by commenters, linked to a prior post where she was called a “nasty hostile b*tch” in the comments there.

    Munroe (0b2761)

  48. actually it’s much more pitiful then that, coronello, it’s a rather pitiful affair, I don’t like the charity for rakim Meyers, even though the Europeans have behaved worse, re gitmo and other matters, they look at the maelstrom of malmo and look away, that’s the befouled nest they have enabled, Lapidus the former defense lawyer turned crime novelist, depicts the seedy Stockholm underbelly, under the shiny Scandinavian surface,

    narciso (d1f714)

  49. More and more I’m starting to feel that those who know how to enjoy life do exactly that and those who don’t argue about politics.

    And so she is.

    Rather than apologizing or expressing remorse for her hateful, bigoted comments, she used them to get a new job with an equally hateful and bigoted organization.

    Dave (1bb933)

  52. Re #41 – Radegunda (3578a5) — 7/28/2019 @ 10:35 am – who wrote in part: “34 – when you [me] assert that people who disagree with you are afflicted by a “derangement,” you’ve lost the argument.”

    I never wrote that those who disagreed with me are afflicted by a derangement. Actually, what I wrote said and explained much more; even provided examples. All which you failed to address. So your post was non-responsive, is no argument and might qualify as a drive-by post.
    I concluded my post with: “Not only do the above culprits all have TDS, but it has afflicted the never-Trumpers and it readily appears this site. [P] Patterico you used to be better than this.”
    If you do not want to consider what I wrote, how about this recent piece – Mark Penn: Mueller’s testimony and investigation are over — THIS is the serious threat we now face. https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/mark-penn-mueller-testimony-investigation-congress-impeachment – most particularly these 2 paragraphs: “ For two years, I have had to qualify my beliefs with something like ‘subject to the findings of the Mueller report.’ Well, the Mueller report found nothing. There was no secret witness, no unearthed secret communications, no secret plot coordinated through hidden Trump Tower servers, no trips to Prague, no quid pro quos to remove sanctions. [P] So why does a third or more of the public still believe in Russia collusion? Because partisanship by our politicians and some in the media knows no bounds, and to partisans, facts and evidence are simply inconvenient bumps on a road to power.”
    Seems like Mr. Penn also saying there’s a BIG double standard and plenty of people out there have been and still are afflicted with TDS.
    And there was Russian collusion – plenty. Fact is though that it was done by the Clintons, the Dem Party (Obama White House), the Deep State/Swamp, Lame Stream Media operatives, etc. – and not by Donald Trump.

    I also never wrote that Donald Trump was my idol. One was presented with a simple binary choice. Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton. Really no choice at all considering the faults & crimes of Hillary Clinton (especially her unsecured private server, her destruction of 33,000 emails under subpoena and her Russian collusion re the Steele dossier interfering in the 2016 prez election). GLZ.
