REQUIRES SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS. AINSLEY: COMBAT VETERAN AND CONSERVATIVE BEAUTY QUEEN FROM NEVADA WAS STRIPPED OF HER TITLE JUST DAYS BEFORE THE MS. AMERICA PAGEANT.>>I WAS OFFICIALLY DISQUALIFIED FROM COMPETING IN THE MS. AMERICA PAGEANT. I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW YOU CAN SENSOR SOMEONE WITH CONSERVATIVE VALUES. MY NAME IS KATIE WILLIAMS. I’M THE FORMER MS. NEVADA STATE 2019. AND I HAVE OFFICIALLY BEEN DETHRONED. AINSLEY: FORMER MS. NEVADA SAID SHE WAS BANNED AFTER REFUSING TO TAKE DOWN SOCIAL MEDIA POST SHOWING SUPPORT FOR THE PRESIDENT’S AGENDA. FORMER MERCHANDISE NEVADA 2019 KATIE JO WILLIAMS JOINING US NOW. HEY, KATIE WILLIAMS, THANKS FOR BEING US.>>THANKS FOR HAVING ME. AINSLEY: TELL US WHY YOU THINK YOU WERE DETHRONED.>>IT’S KIND OF A WEIRD JOURNEY. I JOINED THIS PAGEANT IN APRIL. AND I JOINED TO, YOU KNOW, SHOWCASE MY DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF MY PERSONALITY AND ENCOURAGE YOUNG WOMEN TO JUST BE THEMSELVES AND BE DIFFERENT. AND AS THE TIME WENT ON AND I HAD CONVERSATIONS OVER THE PHONE WITH THE COORDINATOR AND THEN EMAILS BACK AND FORTH IT BECAME VERY CLEAR THAT THERE WAS A CLEAR POLITICAL BIAS TOWARDS ME. OTHER CONTESTANTS POSTED THINGS THAT WERE MAYBE MORE ON THE LIBERAL SIDE AND NOTHING WAS EVER DONE. AND, YET, THE MOMENT I DONNED THAT TRUMP 2020 HAT, IT WAS ALL GOING. AINSLEY: NOW, THE STATEMENT FROM THE PAGEANT SAYS KATIE WILLIAMS IS DISTORTING THE FACTS. NONE OF THIS HAD TO DO WITH HER PERSONAL POLITICAL VIEWS. THE MS. AMERICA IS NO POLITICS PAGEANT. MS. WILLIAMS ACKNOWLEDGED BOTH VERBALLY AND IN WRITING SHE UNDERSTOOD THESE RULES BEFORE SHE WAS ACCEPTED INTO THE PAGEANT. SOME PEOPLE MIGHT SAY THE RULES ARE THE RULES. WHAT’S YOUR RESPONSE?>>YEAH, I UNDERSTAND, I DEFINITELY KNOW THEIR PREROGATIVE AND WHAT THEY SAID. I HAVE DEFINITELY BEEN READING IT. LIKE I SAID, THEY CAN SAY THEY ARE APOLITICAL ALL THEY WANT. HOWEVER, WHEN THEY HAVE OTHER CONTESTANTS POSTING MORE LIBERAL VIEWS AND NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE TO THEM, YOU KNOW, THEY ARE STILL WEARING THEIR CROWN AND SASH. AND DAYS BEFORE WHEN I’M SUPPOSED TO BE IN A HOTEL RIGHT NOW, THEY ACTUALLY JUST STRIPPED MY CROWN, STRIPPED MY TITLE. AINSLEY: I WATCHED YOUR INTERVIEW THIS MORNING ON “FOX & FRIENDS FIRST.” YOU SAID YOU WERE CONFUSED YOUR DIRECTOR WAS ENCOURAGING YOU TO DO THIS. EXPLAIN THAT.>>WHEN WE FIRST STARTED THIS PAGEANTED ARE ROAD, SHE WOULD CALL ME ON THE PHONE AND TALK. WE WOULD TALK ABOUT OUR POLITICAL BIASES TOWARDS OTHER THINGS. AND WE WOULD TALK ABOUT WHAT WE AGREED ON AND WHAT WE DISAGREED ON. AND IT WAS ACTUALLY VERY GOOD CONVERSATIONS. SHE WOULD TURN AROUND AND EMAIL ME AND TELL ME HOW SHE WAS DISAPPOINTED. SHE WASN’T HAPPY WITH WHAT I WAS POSTING. YOU KNOW, TAKE IT DOWN. SEPARATE THE PAGES, WHICH I DID DO. SO I DO ACTUALLY HAVE ANOTHER PAGE. YOU KNOW, AND THEN AFTER A WHILE I JUST DIDN’T FEEL RIGHT TALKING TO HER ON THE PHONE ANYMORE, WHICH IS WHY I REFUSED TO SPEAK TO HER ANYMORE. I ACTUALLY REQUESTED FOR EVERYTHING IN WRITING OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN UNTIL SHE FINALLY DID. AINSLEY: WHY DO YOU THINK THEY CAVED?>>YOU KNOW, I THINK THAT THEY JUST DIDN’T WANT — I REALLY THINK IT’S HONESTLY MY SUPPORT OF THE PRESIDENT. THERE IS MANY DIFFERENT REASONS WHY BUT I THINK THAT JUST HAVING THAT KIND OF THERE. I DON’T THINK IS HE A CONTROVERSIAL FIGURE BUT OTHER PEOPLE DO. AINSLEY: YOU WROTE ON TWITTER ABOUT ANTIFA AND ALSO WROTE ON INSTAGRAM YOU POSTED THAT PICTURE OF PRESIDENT TRUMP. REGARDLESS OF WHAT’S GOING ON. REGARDLESS OF YOU WHO YOU FEEL. REGARDLESS OF WHO SITS IN THE OFFICE. AS LONG AS I SERVE I WILL SUPPORT OUR COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF. NOW ISN’T THE TIME TO LAY BLAME TOWARDS ANYONE BUT THE GUILTY PARTY. MENTAL ILLNESS IS REAL. GUN CONTROL DOESN’T FIX IT. YOU WERE ASKING FOLKS TO PRAY FOR PITTSBURGH. THANK YOU SO MUCH, KATIE JUROR, FOR BEING WITH US AND SERVING OUR COUNTRY.
