Kara McCullough, Miss District of Columbia, was crowned Miss USA 2017, and even as a scientist at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the beauty queen is the subject of some recent controversy concerning universal healthcare.
The newly-minted Miss USA maintains affordable healthcare for all Americans is not a right, but “a privilege,” and her view earned her plenty of boos at the pageant, and more thumbs down than we care to count across social media.
As one follower puts it: “Miss DC just lost me with that answer […] Girl bye.”
