Carrie Prejean Boller, a former runner-up for the title of Miss USA in 2009 thinks she’s helping kids in the United States “be the next Rosa Parks” or Martin Luther King Jr. by approaching them in Target and giving them money to take off their protective masks as COVID continues to sweep across the country and send young children to emergency rooms.

Prejean Boller told a young girl this, according to a shocking report from Rolling Stone:

“Tomorrow when you go to school unmasked, your heart’s gonna be racing and you’re gonna be nervous. But I want you to know you’re doing the right thing. Don’t ever, ever question it,” former Miss USA 2009 first runner-up Carrie Prejean Boller says in one of her Instagram Stories to a young girl in a Def Leppard graphic T-shirt, holding her shoulders and staring deeply into her eyes.

“OK,” the girl says chirpily.

“You’re a leader,” Prejean Boller says, continuing to hold the child’s gaze. “You’re the next Rosa Parks. You’re the next Martin Luther King. This is so important that you stand.”

Afterwards, the pro-Trump ex-beauty queen posted the video to her Instagram account as part of what she calls the “muzzle-free patrol,” which consists of her and members of her group handing kids $1 if they see they aren’t wearing a mask.

However, some of those videos look more than a bit staged:

A mother sardonically explains that she and her children decided to go to Target without wearing masks because they were inspired by Gov. Gavin Newsom, who was recently photographed maskless at the Rams-49ers game. (Newsom has said he only took the mask off for photos.) Prejean Boller and Reynolds then distribute “muzzle-free thank yous” to the children in the form of $1 bills. “We’re empowering those who are brave and willing to stand for freedom,” Prejean Boller says in the video before referring to the children as “little patriots.” She later gives a dollar bill to a little boy in a shopping cart who appears to be about two years old, “for not wearing a muzzle.”

Ironically, Prejean Boller lost her crown for lying to pageant organizers, refusing to show up for required appearances and claiming she had never posed for nude photos. Turns out she did indeed pose for such pictures, which directly violated pageant rules.

Who came to Prejean’s Boller’s defense when she lost her crown? None other than Donald Trump:

In response to a question about same-sex marriage posed by one of the judges, Prejean said that while she believed it was “great that Americans are able to choose one way or the other” — referring to traditional marriage as “opposite marriage” — she believed “that marriage should be between a man and a woman.” Her answer, which Prejean has stated she believes cost her the crown, went viral, and was later defended by Donald Trump (who then owned the Miss Universe system, which operated Miss USA). Newsom himself, despite his own pro-same-sex marriage views, also defended Prejean at the time, saying she “spoke her conscience.”

Spoke her conscience? How would Trump even know what a conscience is? He clearly doesn’t have one of his own, and it appears Carrie Prejean Bolling doesn’t either.
