For the second straight year, D.C. won the Miss USA pageant, after Miss District of Columbia Kara McCullough was crowned during Sunday night’s pageant in Las Vegas.
McCullough, 25, is a scientist who works at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. She won the crown by beating contestants from New Jersey and Minnesota in the final round.
The newly crowned Miss USA found herself at the center of controversy during the pageant with her answers to questions about health care and feminism.
She said that health care is a privilege and not a right and the country should focus at getting more people to work so they can afford health insurance.
Later in the competition, McCullough was asked if she considered herself a feminist, and she responded that she prefers to “transpose” the word feminism to “equalism.”
The victory means she will go on to compete at the Miss Universe pageant to represent the United States.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
Miss District of Columbia Kara McCullough was crowned the new Miss USA Sunday in Las Vegas.
The beauty works in the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission as a chemist.
Tonight during the question and answer section Kara told the audience healthcare is a privilege and not a right and that creating jobs is important. She said feminism is man-hating.
Beauty and brains. She is amazing!
Of course the social justice warriors were not pleased with the contest winner.
