It seems like Donald Trump is always in a fight with someone, but just this once, Carson has his back.

Miss Pennsylvania caused some drama after last weekend’s Miss USA beauty pageant when she posted on her Facebook page that the whole thing was rigged.

Sheena Monnin, who resigned from the competition, claims one of her fellow contestants saw a list of the top 5 contenders before it was announced during the show.

She goes on to say that Miss USA is “fraudulent, lacking in morals, inconsistent, and in many ways trashy.”

Trump plans to sue Monnin unless she apologizes within the next few hours.

Carson hosted the show in 2000 and he completely disagreed with her accusations.

“I happen to have insider information on that situation,” Carson explained this morning. “I hosted Miss USA and Miss Teen USA in Shreveport, Louisiana back in the day and there’s no way that that pageant, this girl Miss Pennsylvania is claiming Miss USA was rigged, there’s no way, and I did it for Donald Trump. I worked for the Trump organization when I hosted both of those.”

Trump maintains that Monnin is actually referring to a rehearsal list, which the host and crew use to practice the show. He says there are several rehearsal lists for the top 15, top 10, and top 5, and the series of names are different on each one.

Listen to the rest of what Carson had to say, plus, you’ve got to hear about Producer Angie’s awkward encounter with The Donald at the Playboy Mansion!
