You might remember Katie Williams as yet another Trump-loving grifter who seeks attention through proud displays of their ignorance, in hopes they'll be able to turn the momentary fame into some monetary compensation or career opportunity. About six months ago Williams claimed she was stripped of her Ms. Nevada crown because of her support for Trump. (In actual fact, they told her repeatedly to knock off the political posts on her Ms. Nevada Facebook page, and when she didn't...well, you know).
Yesterday she posted this stupid tweet below, and got the attention she so desperately craves. Interestingly, in a strange political agreement for once, Ted Cruz and his wife Heidi, tweeted their support for Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez's tweet.
What's especially galling in all this is that Williams is running for the school board of one of the largest school districts in the country, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Would you want someone like this making decisions that affect your children? No, me either.

A woman named Katie Williams went viral on Twitter Saturday night over her defiant tweet and both flippant and ignorant attitude towards the coronavirus pandemic.
Williams, who says on Twitter that she is Ms. Nevada State 2019, responded to a tweet from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recommending people not go out to help contain the coronavirus pandemic. Williams proudly responded that she “went to a crowded Red Robin” and “it was delicious.”
And seems to have no idea how viruses spread.
She must have missed the part about people carrying the virus despite being asymptomatic. Not everyone’s health is terribly affected by the virus, and those infected don’t necessarily show symptoms right away (incubation period is believed to be possibly 14 days). She also does not seem to understand that the socially responsible move is to practice distancing to avoid spreading the virus to those who are most at risk, such as older people and those with preexisting health issues.
Williams and others like her may not want their lives to be dictated to them, which could ultimately lead the government to issue mandated shutdowns.
Notably, Williams claimed last year that her beauty queen title was taken away from her due to her political views. She is running for a spot on the Board of Trustees in the Clark County School District in Nevada.
Williams' tweet got ratioed out of existence almost, with 28k comments, mostly calling her out for gross irresponsibility.
Sen. Ted Cruz though commended AOC's tweet.
And the US Surgeon General commended both of them.
