Last week, Ingraham mocked McCain on her radio show after the daughter of former GOP presidential nominee John McCain urged Republicans to seek compromise with Democrats. Ingraham called McCain “a Valley Girl gone awry” and a “plus-sized model.”
McCain, who writes about politics and her personal life for The Daily Beast, went on The View on Monday to fight back.
“What do young women think when I speak my mind about politics and I want to have a political discussion about the ideological future of the Republican Party, and the answer is, ‘She’s fat, she shouldn’t have an opinion.’ What kind of message are we sending young women?” she asked.
“It infuriates me,” she said. “I’m a political writer on a blog, and all of a sudden I’m too fat to write?”
The View’s conservative co-host, Elizabeth Hasselbeck, called Ingraham’s remarks “a low blow.”
McCain said she felt like Tyra Banks when the model “went on her show in her bathing suit and said, ‘Kiss my fat ass.’”
“That’s what I feel right now,” McCain said. “I’m like, ‘Kiss my fat ass!’”
Ingraham quickly responded to McCain once again on her show, telling McCain that she needs to learn to deal with satire and “teasing.”
“Can I say ‘lighten up,’ or is that offensive too?” Ingraham asked.
Conservative talk show hosts will doom the Republican Party for decades to come. They preach to the choir and you don't win any converts by preaching only to the choir,
I would say "that calls for another Bud" If she is this sensitive she needs to stay out of the limelight and do something constructive like mingling among the poor and impoverished people of the world and helping their cause.
Way to go Meghan!
Wow I kind of like Megan McCain.... he is right what the heck does her weight have to do with anything?? Ingraham reminds of those vicious hih school girls who tear other girls down for no reason... Why are women so mean to other women??!
Actually all your party does is judge people based on their skin color. Achievement and perserverance mean nothing to Democrats, whilst failure and mediocraty are everything! The day your party stops exploiting and victimizing ethnic and social minorities is the day the party ceases to exist.
More bounce to the ounce or better yet, more fun to the ton. Go get them Megan. Everyone is with you. You are a person that is few and far between and not many people like you left.
Soundls like good republican strategy to me, build the party by creating a hero that disagrees with everything the rest of the world find despicable, in the losing republican party.
Seriously Folks! Seriously CNN!!!
I know this kind of news sells! I wish I lived 100 years ago when things like this would have been called what it is: "Garbage"!
Are you worried that MSNBC or TMZ put this on and people leave your site to go there to see this kind of Garbage?
For God Sake CNN, start reporting the news – better yet, I will start my own website that report real news!
Kiss my fat brain!
Hey John, next time hire your daughter for VP and you might have a chance in Hell of winning. At least somebody in the family has an ounce of introspection and isn't running around crying "Gas Tax Holiday" and "the fundamentals of our economy are strong".
Who's Laura Ingrahm?
As Joy said on the view, "you can lose weight but you can't lose ugly". That message was for YOU Laura.
Must say – she has brains for a republican ! Kudos !
Think about who a young lady like McCain has to look up to as a political woman.
Ingaham, Coulter and Palin
Clinton, Obama, Maddow.
Just come over from the Dark Side McCain. We treat women as women...not as contempous loud-mouths and political tools.
I don't know about you guys but Meghan looks good to me. There is something not "surgical" about all of her. Extremely wholesome in looks and comments too. To some of us, she is"PHAT" which is a much desired state. Looking good, Meghan!!
Memo to Laura Ingraham, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, et.al:
At most, you have 20 million listeners/viewers. The other 280 million Americans think you're insane. Keep acting like this and you will truly turn this into a 1-party country.
Go get 'em Megan.
"John, keep your vote, we in the Republican party don't need it. We also don't need Megan McCain."
Ya, Just keep moving more and more right while playing victim.
That's worked wonders for your party.
staunch democrat to meghan... you should drop the repubs and come party with us
Megan: just keep on. Congratulations !!!
Congratulations, Meghan McCain. Just do not stoop to Ingraham's levels.
CHEAP NASTINESS IS " INGRAHAMED" in the hearts of so many sad Republicans!
refreshing to find a REpub who tells it like it is, rather than all those like Ingraham and other FOX NOISE types who tell it like it isn't. God Bless Mehgan McCain!
Keep up the good work Meaghan. YOU, are the future of the Republican Party.
This is probably one of the only Republicans that I actually respect. Meghan is the true maverick of that family! And she supports our President. Way to go Meghan!
Laura Ingraham is a skinny and somewhat attractive shrew .. where as MM is a fresh young voice and she just happens to look great ... she is not fat and super models are not ideal role models!
