Miss Louisiana apparently disagrees with the Obama administration’s trading of five Taliban prisoners for American prisoner of war Bowe Bergdahl. At the Miss USA pageant Sunday night, Brittany Guidry slammed the Obama administration for the deal.
“I am glad that we got our guy back,” Guidry said. “However, I do not feel it is right that we subject ourselves to these acts of terrorism. I do agree with our guy being back, but, however, I do not think we should subject ourselves. Thank you.”
