Skip to comments.Meghan McCain on Larry King: I am pro-Obama, pro-gay marriage, but against conservative bullies

Sen. John McCain's daughter continued her all-out media tour with a stop on CNN's "Larry King Live" Tuesday night, voicing support for her father's campaign opponent, President Obama, but none for her Republican critics.
Meghan McCain, a columnist for TheDailyBeast.com, also tried to take the high road after conservative radio host Laura Ingraham had joked about the 24 year-old's weight last week.
"As far as I'm concerned with what's going on with Laura Ingraham, on my end, it's over," McCain told King. "There are nine million women in this country suffering from eating disorders. And I'm not going to be bullied around about my weight and what kind of standards I'm not fitting."
In the past few weeks since she started her career as a political columnist, McCain has angered conservatives - especially after she blasted pundit Ann Coulter, calling the author, "offensive, radical, insulting, and confusing all at the same time." Ingraham had poked fun of McCain's weight on her radio show, then back-peddled on an interview with Fox News a few days later.
Meghan McCain's "progressive" - code for liberal in the eyes of many fellow Republicans - views on supporting gay marriage have also made her controversial among her party's base.
"I have taken heat, but in fairness to me, I am a different generation than the people that are giving me heat," McCain told King. "I'm 24 years old. I'm not in my 40s, I'm not in my 50s and older."
But perhaps her most controversial view as far as Republicans are concerned is her support for Obama to succeed as president.
"He's our president and when the election was over and when President Obama won, all negative feelings were gone," McCain said on the CNN show. "I support the president."
Meghan ... you’re an idiot
Well, that’s a shock. (sarc/)
Puncture one of her ear drums and the resulting rush of air to fill that vacuum would suck the shirt off your back.
Miss McLame.......shut up.
She used an incorrect conjunction. She should’ve used ‘and’ rather than ‘but’.
I’m ready for JD Hayworth to show her and her father the door next year - and it can’t come soon enough.
Tits on a bull
“Meghan ... youre an idiot”
How does that saying go? “The acorn does not fall far from the tree” Something like that...
I’m pro-Obama, but against conservative... But?? Did she ever hear about a thing called non sequitur? Probably not, among other things she never heard of.
“Conjunction junction, what’s your function?”
OK...I'm gonna hold you to that. ;)
Quick. Call the police. Someone has stolen her neck.
Little attention slut strikes again.
“...voicing support for her father’s campaign opponent, President Obama, but none for her Republican critics.”
So father, so daughter.
Boy, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
IIRC, Churchill once said that if you aren’t a liberal before you turn 30, you have no heart.
However, It remains to be seen if Mehgan McCain actually has a brain.
My dear Meghan, it’s not your physical weight that’s the problem, it’s the weight of your intellect and conservative values...or lack thereof.
As if her opinion mattered. She is just stretching her 15 minutes of fame.
Having said that, though, I cringed when Laura Ingraham made that "plus-size" comment. It just give the libs ammunition to call conservatives mean-spirited.
Meghan is just aching to be “the fourth Dixie Chick”.
In other words, she’s a liberal.
Meghan ... youre a SCREWED UP idiot.
“I’ve got fudge!” - The Dice Man
LOL.. Liberal republicanism is the for the “new generation.” So says McCheese.
That’s funny. Because I grew up in New England and that’s the only kind of republicans I knew - country club, liberal assw*pes.
They all must’ve been before their time.
What a nitwit.
A useful idiot at that.
Ummmmm, obviously educated in a communist university.
This one from the Daily News writer. To the best of my knowledge, all liberals began to referr to themselves as "progressives" ten or fifteen years ago after consultants let them know that the word "liberal" had negative connotations. If you asked most Americans on the left or the right to name the alpha dog of "progressive" politics, San Fran Nan would get about 110% of the vote. "Progressive" and "Liberal" are synonyms.
No, your end is still one of the problems.
Anyway, I thought Laura Ingraham's comment was a cheap shot, but Meghan is getting rather annoying, so what the heck. Why is this woman still out there shooting off her mouth? She doesn't represent Republicans and certainly not cnservatives. What's the point?
She is saying that the acceptance of “gay” marriage is an age issue, and not a moral one. I know numerous people 24 and younger who realize that it is wrong. I also know people over 40 who think it is perfectly fine.
It’s a moral issue, pure and simple.
That was meant for Meagan, not you!
If she was “anti-Obama” and Conservative the media would ignore her.
not to mention pro chow...
My favorite part...”but in fairness to me.” Hilarious!
Thank you. Just ignore this little political whore.
She does sound like a total BO supporter. I think John has a few conservative principles left somewhere, and he’s probably not too pleased with his daughter.
What is it about thongs and fat chicks who never earned their right to be considered political?
Meghan is going to spean at the net DNC convention with her father.
you can’t make up this kind of stupid.
Kill it before it multiplies!
The old media recognizes an opportunity to use a hapless kid to pump up Hussein’s incompetence. No surprise.
Judging by her old man's campaign, so is he.
Ske looks like a size 14 to me.. bursting at the seams with energy.. Red Bull? or Jolt?
I would like to see a new movement:
Under 30 and anti-obama.
