    Firstly as we have already established not all species of whale are endangered. The species of whale in question here is the Minke Whale, which is far from endangered*. Also if it's the 'wildness' of the species in question here then are you against deer hunting? Also commercial whaling isnt illegal, just regulated and restricted (see International Whaling Commission)

    Being harpooned and bleeding to death over long, agonizing hours, is not what I consider humane. A quick gun shot to the head or heart of a deer is quick and painless.

    I have no problem with deer hunting when it's done right. I'd say it's impossible to do the same for whales.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
