John Oliver brings out the ridiculous-ness of Miss America pageants and questions WHY it still exists today.

Some great soundbites  when Donald Trump says “it’s obviously about great outer beauty - we like to say looks don’t matter but it obviously does or else you won’t have a job.” to which John Oliver says, “it’s a little ironic that the Miss USA pageant is overseen by the ugliest soul on the planet.” Boom. 

Also - I haven’t watched Miss USA or most pageants in awhile (except for the Miss Hong Kong, but that’s on a completely different spectrum than Miss USA) but it’s so true when John Oliver questions why they get asked incredibly difficult questions like HOW TO SOLVE THE ISIS CREDIT in 20 seconds. What I’ve learned from Miss USA answers is mostly that a) they are great at PR and doing the whole answering-a-question-but-not-answering-the-question and b) they have great coaches and c) I can’t even answer that. 

But what really blows my mind about the whole investigative piece is John Oliver’s discovery in the end that even though Miss America claims to donate 45 million USD to college funds, and the true number is under half a million, it is still THE largest college fund provider for women. Wow. 


Sometimes when I say “I’m okay”, what I really want is for someone to hold my hand, look me in the eyes and say “I know that you’re not okay, here is $1000.00”.

called out sick to go to disneyland (literally the only reason i ever call out sick) but i did have stuff I had to help A with at work so I’m texting A all these reminders like “i know they have science right now but when you get the chance give [list of kids] friday’s test” and “set an alarm for 3:15 so you can start homework room” and “get it together” i need to think less about this place when i’m not there

My dream for the 2016 presidential election is not having to choose which human rights I’m feeling like compromising on.




this is honestly one of the defining moments of the last decade
