Pageant queen Kathy Zhu is sure making lemonade out of lemons.
Last week, Zhu was stripped of her Miss Michigan title after a series of vile tweets she wrote in 2017 and 2018 resurfaced. In response, Zhu hit the media circuit, where she claimed “coming out as conservative is harder than coming out as gay.”
Some of Zhu’s tweets included calling Adolf Hitler “very smart and a good public speaker,” attacking women who wear hijabs, and sharing bogus statistics suggesting Black people have lower IQs.
Oh, and then there was this clever little ditty she wrote: “Roses are red, violets are blue, how many genders?, only 2.”
With racist, homophonic, xenophobic, anti semitic tweets like that, it makes perfect sense that Zhu has been scooped up by Trump’s reelection team.
Over the weekend, the 20-year-old pageant queen joined the Women for Trump Coalition Advisory Board.
Speaking to a group of College Republicans student group last week, Zhu called Donald Trump her “role model” because he’s not afraid to spout his racist beliefs.
“I think that for me to stand here as an Asian-American, to come here and say, ‘I am a conservative, I support Trump,’ I guess the left finds it hysterical that I’m doing this,” Zhu said.
Hysterical? Not quite.
Enjoy your 15 minutes, Kathy.
