As Twitchy told you, newly crowned Miss USA Kra McCullough set liberal tongues a-wagging on Sunday night when she called health care “a privilege” not a right and said that women “are just as equal as men when itcomes to opportunity in theworkplace.”
This morning, McCullough “clarified” her remarks and appeared to be walking them back, but not fast enough for digital mag The Root:

If you like the headline, you’ll love the post. Here’s a sample:
Sadly, many of the now-crowned champions comments remind us that the former owner of Miss USA is Donald Trump. Surely, there is no coincidence in the similarity between McCulloughs and Trumps god-awful responses related to health care and feminism. But then I remembered: Only one is systematically oppressing communities in ways that literally cause the death of already marginalized individuals. … If this wasnt bad enough, when asked about feminism, McCullough said, As a woman scientist in the government, Id like to lately transpose the word feminism to equalism. What did she just say? There is no such thing, and her answer was merely an attempt to not appear divisive. Mission not accomplished.
Make no mistake: Some of McCulloughs answers are what happens when only science, technology, engineering and mathematics are emphasized with no foundation in liberal arts. McCulloughs statements in both of her answers were vapid, lacked minimal thought and were, hopefully, the result of a 30-second pressured thought as opposed to a fully considered response. Nonetheless, I recognize that at her age, I was guilty of having many of the same views on issues about which I developed a fuller understanding as I matured.
Get it? If only McCullough were as mature as Preston Mitchum, she’d realize that her independent thinkingmakes her some kind of race traitor!
