Miss Utah does make a good case for education reform in America.—

Oh dear. As Twitchy reported, Miss Alabama weighed in on the NSA controversy during last night’s Miss USA Pageant. But Miss Utah, Marissa Powell, gave an answer to a question that caused major buzz.
Ms. Powell took to Twitter before the pageant.
Oh, honey. Perhaps she should have prepped the question and answer segment a bit more.
How long until someone posts a YouTube video of Miss Utah, similar to the Miss South Carolina debacle from a few years ago…—

Ask and ye shall receive. Twitter, of course, had video available right away. Watch. And cringe:
The mockery was swift and snicker-worthy.
Ha! Many Twitter users were reminded of Miss Teen South Carolina and her infamous answer … “such as”:

So, there’s that! Move over, Miss Teen South Carolina.
This is so sad. Miss Utah just used the sentence "we need to create education better" confidently in a response.—

Or was it the best thing ever?
Miss Utah – 'We must create education better.'

Miss Utah. You are a fucking legend. The most incoherent thing I've heard in a while.—

She certainly scored high in the buzz category! Fox & Friends discussed it this morning:
And some Twitter users think that she should be cut some slack.
Poor Miss.Utah is trending. Give her a break.—

People still tweeting about how Miss Utah stumble on her question, give her a break. I'll love to see you talk in front of a million people😂—

And others choose to focus on different, err, assets.
In any event, thanks for the giggles, Miss Utah!
