Did Miss USA Just RECANT Her RECANT on the ‘Right’ to Health Care?


On Tuesday, Miss USA Kára McCullough publicly recanted her comment that health care is “definitely” a privilege, not a right. But, on Wednesday, she declared, “I stand by what I said” – ‘it’s a privilege.”

Tuesday, when she was interviewed on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” she renounced her view expressed Sunday during the pageant that health care is a privilege, declaring to ABC that health care is a right everyone should have.

On Wednesday, while being interviewed on Fox News Channel, McCullough said that she stands behind her Sunday assertion that health care is not a right, but a privilege:

Q: “The liberal media didn’t like that you said it was a privilege to have health care.” “What was your response to this? You’re learning first-hand, if the mainstream media doesn’t like your stance, they’re going to go after you.”

A: “And, you answered, basically, everything I was just about to say. So, essentially, I’m just like soaking this all in and I’m just going to be a woman and just really tell people that, hey, I stand behind what I said.

“Like, we are, you know, given this opportunity to live in America and I’m extremely thankful for everything. I’m extremely grateful.

“It’s definitely a good aspect to have affordable health care for people. But, I definitely not taking my health care for granted. And that’s why I said it’s a privilege.”

There was one topic where her answer remained consistent from one day to the next, however. In both interviews, Miss USA invoked a sexist stereotype to assert her integrity:

  • “Because I’m a woman, I’m gonna own what I said.” (Tuesday, “Good Morning America”)
  • “I’m just gonna be a woman and just really tell people that, hey, I stand behind what I said.” (Wednesday, Fox News Channel)

Well, at least she's not recanting her declaration that she's a woman.
