When The View returned at the beginning of September, Meghan McCain took her Kool-Aid Man Full of Mayo routine to the next level by loudly shrieking “I’m not living without guns!” during a panel discussion on an assault rifle ban. I know memory is a fickle mistress, but I’m almost positive bees flew out of her mouth. Meghan also promised “a lot of violence” if liberals try to take away AR-15s then doubled down on her remarks on Twitter as she and her dumbass husband equated themselves with, let’s see here, the Black Panthers. Holy shit.
The gun incident inevitably led to a back and forth with Beto O’Rourke, who’s been leading the charge on gun control in recent months, and like the symbol of her
religion party, a Meghan never forgets. So here she is unloading on Cory Booker today while invoking her brother, who I didn’t even know existed. Other people can call John McCain father? Inconceivable! Via Raw Story:
“One of the things that I liked that you have said is that ‘Medicare for All’ is unrealistic right now, given that it will never pass,” McCain said, “but you do support mandatory gun buybacks. When I heard you and Beto saying that, to me, that’s like a left-wing fever dream.”
She then issued a vaguely violent challenge to his policy proposal.
“I want to know how you think you and Beto are going to go to red states and go to my brother’s house is can get his AR-15s, because let me tell you — he’s not giving it back,” McCain said.
For the record, that is absolutely a threat, and the target of that threat is law enforcement and the troops that Meghan claims to love so much. Who the hell does she think her brother is going to be shooting at? Obama sneaking in the window with a giant gun-magnet? Jesus Christ.
Naturally, the discussion spiraled even further out of control to the point where Booker ended up doing Whoopi Goldberg’s job by explaining to Meghan how grown-ups talk after she called O’Rourke “crazy” for not wanting America to be a 24/7 shooting gallery where babies act as adorable little bullet catchers.
“We should watch the way we talk about each other,” he said. “Seriously, we can’t tear the character of people down.”
“He has no problem doing it to me,” McCain replied. “He was very nasty to me about this.”
Booker reminded McCain that two wrongs don’t make a right.
“You both know that just because somebody does something to us,” he said, “doesn’t mean you—”
“I’m not running for president,” McCain interrupted. “With all due respect, and the way he talks about me inciting violence on this, I take very seriously and I speak for a lot of red state Americans, whether he or you like it or not, there is a lot of Republicans you have to win over.”
I love how Cory Booker has to explain very simple concepts to Meghan that MY FATHER must’ve accidentally forgot during his pristine and unimpeachable parenting career. More importantly, did you catch how Meghan acted all indignant that she’s being accused of inciting violence? These are literally the next words out of her mouth:
“Just tell me semantically, how you’re going to get my brother’s gun back,” she said.
Booker said assault weapons bans had worked in the past, but McCain wasn’t convinced.
“So you’re going to go to my brother’s house?” she said. “My brother won’t do it.”
“How dare Beto suggest I’m inciting violence? I am offended by that. Now, let’s talk about how it’d be awesomely America if my brother murdered people for taking away his favorite toy. His bang-bang shoot-shoot toy. Kill ‘em all, Johnny!”
Nope, no dangerous rhetoric there. Fortunately, Meghan didn’t do something stupid like retweet (then unretweet) Dana Loesch immediately after the show.
Well, machine guns aren’t banned, so @CoryBooker is wrong when he says “we did that.” Booker asks why are we playing into fear mongering — yet that is precisely what he’s doing to sell his flawed confiscation plan. He never answered @MeghanMcCain ‘s question, either. https://t.co/wB0TxVi8gJ— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) October 30, 2019
As for why Meghan would back away from her bestie’s tweet, I’m guessing the factual error about machine guns being banned is the likely suspect, but there’s also the not so insignificant issue of the NRA calling its own production starring Loesch racist as hell.
Granted, this information probably has nothing to do with Meghan unretweeting Loesch praising her performance. I just thought it’d be a fun fact to remind everybody who John McCain’s daughter’s closest friends are. In this case, the gun-toting crazy lady who put Thomas & Friends in Klan hoods. Real Americans, everybody!
