MISS USA 2017 KARA McCULLOUGH ANGERS THE LEFT: OBAMACARE IS ‘A PRIVILEGE, NOT A RIGHT’; ‘I’M NOT A FEMINIST BUT AN EQUALIST’
- Kara McCullough: affordable healthcare ( Obamacare ) is a privilege, not a right
- ‘I don’t want to call myself a feminist,’ McCullough said. ‘Women, we are just as equal as men, especially in the workplace.”
MISS USA 2017 Kara McCullough, the 65th crowned Miss USA, is a 25-year-old chemist working for the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission as a physical scientist. She graduated from South Carolina State University with a degree in chemistry and a concentration in radio chemistry. She was born in Naples, Italy, and raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
When asked about what they think of feminism, Kara answers:
‘I don’t want to call myself a feminist,’ McCullough said. ‘Women, we are just as equal as men, especially in the workplace.
With #MissUSA being a top trending item on Twitter, a lot of people were not happy ( liberals of course ) with Kara’s answer if affordable healthcare ( Obamacare ) is a right or privilege:
‘As a government employee, I’m granted health care. And I see firsthand that for one, to have health care, you need to have jobs, so therefore we need to continue to cultivate this environment so that we’re given the opportunities to have health care as well as jobs for all Americans worldwide’
( Inquisitr ) According to Google Trends, Miss USA 2017 received at least 50,000 searches on Sunday evening, the same night the 2017 Miss USA competition was held in Las Vegas, Nevada. One of the final contestants was Miss District of Columbia, Kara McCullough. Kara was named a top three finalist during the 2017 Miss USA pageant. However, whilst some of the crowd at the Mandalay Bay Events Center loved McCullough’s answer during one of the questioning sessions, others on social media weren’t so fond of Kara calling affordable healthcare a privilege and not a right.
McCullough ended up winning the Miss USA 2017 contest, but the answer Kara gave about affordable healthcare lost a certain segment of Twitter.
With #MissUSA being a top trending item on Twitter, plenty of those tweets featured complaints about Miss D.C. losing the social media crowd by stating her beliefs that viewed affordable healthcare as a privilege. McCullough said that she realized her government job was granted to her and answered that people need jobs that come along with healthcare. That answer may have sat well with some folks, but others on Twitter are clapping back at Kara with memes and their own responses.
As seen in some of the following comments from social media, not everyone was unhappy about the answer Miss D.C. gave about healthcare.
#MissUSA Miss District of Columbia was amazing throughout the competition tonight…she definitely gets my vote!”
“I’m conflicted. I’ve been pulling for Miss DC from the beginning but her answers were… questionable. But Miss NJ killed that part…
“Even though D.C. just lost my vote, her dress is beautiful though
“Miss District of Colombia would have my vote!
“I voted for Miss D.C. 55 times and then she said that healthcare was a privilege and not a right…bye
“Wasn’t a huge Miss D.C. Fan until I heard her answers. Now I’d be perfectly okay if she won. Loved her answers
“What!? D.C. STILL WON WITH ALL THOSE HORRIBLE ANSWERS!? Well I guessed right I guess
“Well that’s America today. A POS who says health care is a PRIVILEGE wins
#MissUSA. I’m done.”
