Corrigan did not respond to multiple CNN requests for comment.
Corrigan frequently criticized notions of gender equality and feminism for running counter to her view that women were primarily mothers and wives and belonged in the home.
“This sick statement by Warren, which glibly mocks a real crisis happening in our society, is exactly why women shouldn’t be in office. They will always advocate for themselves at the expense of men, and revel in it,” she tweeted in October 2019.
“Right wing gatekeepers have made it abundantly clear that their allegiance is to Satan and those who carry out his agenda of appalling sexual perversion over those who question the liberal status quo,” she tweeted.
Bashed refugees and immigration
Corrigan repeatedly expressed hostility towards refugees and immigration, both in the United States and in Europe.
Also in October 2019, Corrigan tweeted support for the far-right Germany political party AfD, an anti-immigration and anti-Muslim group.
Homophobia and Transphobia
Corrigan repeatedly shared multiple tweets critical of the LGBTQ community and the growing societal trend towards tolerance.
