Promoting his Miss USA Pageant, Donald Trump enjoyed being a big fish in a small pond, dazzling the Ozarks locals with the same kind of banter that draws yawns in his hometown of New York. “I was a great genius in the ’80s. Then I was a great moron in the early ’90s,” Trump said. “That’s probably why I bought this pageant — so I could get a date. Now they call me a genius again. It’s great.” The pageant Friday crowned Miss New York Kimberly Ann Pressler, 21. She’ll now compete for the Miss Universe title on May 26.
