Who knew Billy Eichner was such a badasss?

The Billy on the Street star effortlessly eviscerated Meghan McCain after the Republican talking head (who’s Senator McCain’s daughter) opined that “this Meryl Streep speech is why Trump won,” recommending that “people in Hollywood” need to “start recognizing it.”

Eicher wasn’t having none of that, responding:

Um she asked him not to make fun of disabled people and advocated for the freedom of the press and the arts you f–king moron…”

And it only gets more ruthless from there:

    He totally owned her. If you get the GOP off of their sound bites and their prepared script that “Liberal Elites” are ruining this country, and force them to face facts, the GOP can’t take the heat.

    Your political opinions matter only to those whose IQ is the same as their shoe size.
    Which is why you swayed no one in the election. Or the recount. Or your pathetic begging of the electorate to refute Trump.
    It might behoove you to occasionally step out of make-believe-land and learn how the real world works.

  • Low Country Boy

    @Mo Bro: So if you think that celebrities cost Hillary the election, I guess you also don’t think that the Russians hacked the election to help Trump get elected? You need to learn how the real world works, Sir.

  • BigWill

    Billy might have said to Meghan: “Your father spent five and a half years as a POW in North Korea—about whom Trump the draft dodger said ‘I like people who weren’t captured’—where he was so badly tortured that to this day he can’t raise his arms above shoulder level. One would think you’d be more compassionate about the disabled, soldiers, and, you know, your father.”

    Meghan McCain, along with everyone else who voted for this petty, thin-skinned, ignorant reality TV star is a moron.

  • MaxTaste

    She’s only famous because of her last name. Boring.

  • Mo Bro

    @Low Country Boy:
    FYI, I never stated that celebrities cost Clinton the election, I simply pointed out that they did her no good.
    And regarding the Russian hacking, there haven’t been any facts to back that up, only hysterical liberals insisting it must be true. I’m not claiming there was no infiltrating, but I’m one of those guys who needs proof, not conjecture.

  • 1EqualityUSA

    If seventeen agencies aren’t proof enough, nothing will convince a Trumper, nauseating. When unions dry up, so will the rustbelt’s love for this arrogant tyrant. He is a small man with a small mind. He is ruining the GOP’s reputation, not that it wasn’t sullied already. Why don’t you cut education more, solidify your voting block for 2032 A financially threatened herd is easier to steer, you see, this is why Trump said that he loves the uneducated. Mo Bro you must be one of his fold?

  • dustashed

    Am i the only one that thinks she eviscerated him with that last comment?

    Dont get me wrong im his side, but from the way i see it, he was getting destroyed.

    And at the end of the day she is rich and he is a “d-list comedian”

    And money, though not everything, can be quite heavy on the scapes sometimes

    You have all the security organizations like the FBI, CIA, DHS all agreeing that the emails were hacked and leaked by the Russians ie Putin. What else do you need? A video of them doing it? Yeah, this is another reason why Trump won. Utter disregard for reality by his supporters.

  • Terrycloth

    Stick her in a room with Ann Coulter lets see who comes out alive !

  • scotshot

    @Mo Bro: (sigh) More of the same talking points that are everywhere today. When all the USA’s intelligence agencies have stated it’s true, it is true. Where is the proof that you and your fellow traveler’s statements are true. All I’ve seen is deflection and more talking points supplied by the Russians.

    Putin is pissed that President Obama refused to let him intimidate him.

    Putin is pissed that Secretary Clinton refused to let him intimidate her,

    Putin is pissed becauseSecretary Clinton would have stood up to him because she knows Russia is a threat to Democracy.

    Putin is pissed that Secretary Clinton got the best of him.

    Putin is pissed that Secretary Clinton is a woman.

    Putin and Russian Intelligence hacked US computers and spread lies to give Trump the election.

    Putin is happy because Trump is already his puppet / pussy.

    Where in the world did Trump’s tax returns go?

    Putin is happy because he’s already their puppet / p*ssy

    @Mo Bro: Every hack contains a digital signature so if you don’t believe that The Department of Homeland Security identified and named Russia’s malware code ‘Grizzly Steppe’ and set about alerting US utilities about it, well don’t blame us for not keeping up with what’s going on in the REAL world instead of FAUXNews. BTW: The only malware code writers whose identity continues to elude the authorities were the brilliant folks behind Ashley Madison’s downfall.

  • Kangol

    @Mo Bro: LOL. You are too much. Trump won by the largest popular vote LOSS in US history. He squeaked by by roughly 80,000 votes in three states. He is the most unpopular incoming president in the last 50 years. In your Breitbart/Fox bubble he’s a winner. But hey, many of your fellow Trumpistas are going to be very sorry when his elitist billionaire crew and the vile GOP finishing wrecking things again. They can’t help themselves, they always screw up, and badly!

  • He BGB

    Surely she didn’t vote for Mr Trump. After what he said about her father?? She is right that Billy is d list. That terrible hulu show where they are self centered @holes and think it’s funny is so annoying I can’t watch. And he stole the man on the street idea. Everybody loves Meryl and for Mr Trump to call her overrated is so stupid because she didn’t flatter him like Putin and all those awful cabinet choices are doing.

  • Chris

    Streep’s comments about all that would be left is football and wrestling needlessly provides people with ammunition about “Hollywood elites” being out of touch. Gratuitous. Other than that, I’m with her 100%

  • Charlie in Charge

    I’m not sure what that nitwit McCain is getting at? Calling Trump on vile behavior is why we lost? She’s a celebrity sharing her opinion that celebrities shouldn’t share their opinions.

  • Mo Bro


    Great ranting there, guys, but you’ve evaded the obvious:
    Putin hacked us, that’s a fact, but there is NO EVIDENCE that his hacking swayed the election one way or the other. In fact, his actions might have given Clinton an edge. Do you know otherwise? No, you don’t. Bloviate all you like, but it doesn’t change the facts.

  • 1EqualityUSA

    It does make our president vulnerable to pressures exerted by Russia, unique that neither he nor his cabinet has experience governing.

    What a lonely place.

    Say, what about Merrick Garland for Supreme Court?

  • js3795

    Sorry – She won, he Lost. He is a twat and she basically bitch slapped his prissy, pansy ass with just one tweet compared to his histrionic, 4yr old-kid-who-is-overdue-for-his-nap tirade. It would have been more entertaining if she had gotten into a match with someone in the big kids section of the playground instead. Final match: Meghan -1 Billy – 0
