Meghan McCain Calls Out Irony of Facebook CEO Promoting Socialism
Meghan McCain called it "ironic" that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has dedicated himself to promoting a socialist platform.
The multi-billionaire pushed the idea of universal basic income "to make sure everyone has a cushion to try new ideas" during his commencement speech at Harvard University. Zuckerberg studied there for two years before leaving to expand Facebook.
A universal basic income policy would mean the government gives everyone a stipend to pay for basic necessities.
"Every generation expands its definition of equality," said Zuckerberg, whose net worth is estimated at more than $63,000,000,000.
Zuckerberg is a "true genius" and "the Henry Ford of our time," McCain remarked on "Outnumbered."
McCain said that for the founder of the mammoth company to urge others not to follow in his footsteps to achieve success is counterproductive to his own story.
She added that the "normalizing of socialism" in America in the wake of Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and former president Obama should scare everyone.
