Meghan McCain Calls in Sick to 'The View' After Getting Roasted for Her Dumbass Ilhan Omar Remarks

Let’s set the scene. Back in February, Meghan McCain attempted to reinforce her personal “brand” by lauding Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar as a “bad bitch” after reports surfaced that the Minnesota senator allegedly abused her staff.

Via HuffPost:

Co-host Joy Behar asked whether Klobuchar ― who has been accused of mistreating staff and has gained a reputation as a cruel and tough boss ― was a better fit for the presidency in McCain’s opinion.

“Being a bad bitch is a good thing,” McCain answered. “For me, it’s like you’re tough and you’re strong and you get things done. I think I probably fit into that category.”

If Meghan McCain was talking about being the kind of “bad bitch” who abuses the help, then yup, no arguments here. Nailed it. Except that’s not the comparison McCain was making. She genuinely believes she’s a tough as nails, gun totin, red meat-eatin’, All-American conservative girl who pulled herself up by her own bootstraps. Which is a really odd way to describe falling out of a beer heiress into the arms of a United States Senator. That’s being born on home plate while the umpire hands you the deed to the stadium.

Anyway, my point is that Meghan’s whole schtick is that she’s a #BossBitch in the purely Republican vein of not getting tripped up by facts or nuance or “weak” female emotions. Except, of course, when brown people like Representative Ilhan Omar say something that Meghan doesn’t like, and then it’s Waterworks City.

Via The Daily Beast:

“I take this very personally,” McCain said. “I would go so far as to say I probably verge on being a Zionist as well.” While she doesn’t have Jewish family, she began to tear up as she described former Sen. Joe Lieberman and his wife Hadassah as her family. “I take the hate crimes raising in this country incredibly seriously and I think what’s happening in Europe is really scary. And I’m sorry if I’m getting emotional.”

“Just because I don’t technically have Jewish family that are blood-related to me doesn’t mean that I don’t take this seriously,” she added. “And it is very dangerous—very dangerous—and I think we all collectively as Americans on both sides—and what Ilhan Omar is saying is very scary to me and a lot of people and I don’t think you have to be Jewish to recognize that.

Naturally, it didn’t take long for Twitter to have a field day with the whitest white lady to ever white getting the vapors over anti-semitism, especially when Ilhan Omar wasn’t being anti-semitic. And easily the most scathing criticism came from a political cartoon by Eli Valley:

Because learning things is for non-bad bitches, Meghan stepped directly in shit again by accusing Valley of anti-semitism, which blew up spectacularly in her face.

And the hits just kept on coming:

However, what Twitter didn’t realize is they’re messing with a hard-as-nails BOSS BITCH who will never lie down and play the victim.

And with that, Meghan stood firm in her convictions, rolled up her sleeves, and proudly returned to The View on Monday to face the mus— what’s that? She called in sick?

Oh. Okay.
