    Steve Harvey - someone take this host, please?



    PER USA TODAY: Colombians, starting with President Juan Manuel Santos, were especially crestfallen. Like most Latin-American nations, Colombia is keen on beauty pageants. Harvey's mistake gave Colombians a chance to celebrate what could have been an unprecedented case of back-to-back Miss Universe titles.

    Social media exploded after Harvey's mistake, with Twitter users weighing in with jokes and criticism — including the pageant's former owner, Donald Trump.

    On Sunday night, Trump quoted two tweets criticizing the pageant, including one that asked, "Where's @realDonaldTrump when you need em?"

    On Monday morning, Trump claimed the debacle "would never have happened" under his watch.
    “Very sad what happened last night at the Miss Universe Pageant. I sold it 6 months ago for a record price. This would never have happened”

    The pageant ran flawlessly under Trump’s leadership for over 15 years. Who is running the pageant now? Rahm Emmanuel’s brother, Ari.

    Why exactly should I care what the Hitler-wannabe thinks about a beauty pageant?

    He knows how to get free Press no matter what happens.

    Harvey handled it well even though it was his mistake. I'm sure he'll get many gigs in the future from it where they can have that intense ut-oh moment and laugh about it.

    Talk about an F-up heard (and seen) around the world. It’s a global internationally televised event.

    I don't know man, it sounds like it was just a matter of taking a second to read through the card thoroughly, he's a professional and that's the least we should expect. That being said, I had no idea there was a Miss Universe pageant airing and would've never known without this news. I probably just live under a rock :)

    OMG!!! He made a mistake with no intent of malice. He said he was sorry and I am sure he feels bad over it...

    Can we please move on!

    An out of date competition associated with a fella who is out of date with modern society. No surprises there.

    Incredible. Never a misstep under Trump in over 15 years. He sells it at a profit and what happens at the very next pageant? This is one for the history books.

    That's what I thought.

    It's always clear who the deluded people are when they claim the Trumpster is a 'failure'.

    Steve should be banned for TV for doing that. Colombia was the clear winner. ms. phillppines looks like regular girl at my local mall. ms. Colombia was perfection. Never did like steve anyway, when you see his show he looks awkward doing it. hopefully ms. Colombia doesnt call up the drug cartels on steve.

    It's really not a miss universe pageant until we let other planets participate.

    Has it been verified that the host is literate ?

    [​IMG]

    Here is the actual card he had, how could someone who can read possibly botch this ?
    Only other possibility is he was over jacked on meds.

    Or he simply was anxious and made a simple mistake that cannot be recreated / understood in hindsight.

    Or you can pick one of the several twitters that contain the "N"-word, if that's what you really feel.
