Newly crowned Miss USA Kara McCullough sounds a lot like Donald Trump, who used to own the pageant, by saying that health care is a “privilege.” Um, really?
During Sunday night’s broadcast McCullough, while answering her final interview question, she engaged in some word salad, like Trump:
“I’m definitely going to say it’s a privilege. As a government employee, I am granted health care. And I see first-hand that for one to have health care, you need to have jobs. So therefore we need to continue to cultivate this environment that we’re given the opportunity to have health care, as well as jobs, to all the American citizens worldwide.”
All American citizens worldwide? You would think for someone who works at the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission, she would give a better answer. Granted healthcare? Um, doesn’t she pay for it via payroll deductions? So, I guess she wants to see Medicaid and Medicare abolished, right?
Many have said that Kara McCullough is “one of the most intelligent contestants in recent memory.” Um, she certainly have many people fooled with that response.

Of course, Twitter responded:
@MissUSA She fucked up. That was like a clueless rich girl answer.

@MissUSA Sad, privileged answer. What about the disabled, elderly, children, the homeless, women fleeing abusive husbands who control finances? SMH
