Pete Buttigieg appeared on The View this morning to speak about the great work he’s been doing as Secretary of Transportation, but that’s not what anyone’s talking about. Instead, they’re talking about Meghan McCain dressing up like a unicorn and then blaming it on her gay friends.
During a discussion about Dr. Jill Biden appearing on the cover of Vogue, John McCain’s daughter made the understatement of the century when she said she’s “not a fashion person at all” while criticizing the First Lady’s floral print dress.

@MeghanMcCain doesn’t like what Jill Biden wears on the cover of the view, while she’s dressed like a cake topper at a My Little Pony party/

It is quite hilarious that Meghan McCain holds Vogue and Anna Wintour to a higher standard than that racist pig she's married to.#TheView

Meghan McCain: I’m not into fashion.

But our story doesn’t end there.
Evidently, McCain saw what people were saying about her and didn’t appreciate it because shortly thereafter she fired off an angry tweet defending her look, which she said was her way of honoring her LGBTQ friends during Pride.
“Today is the last day of pride month!” she wrote. “I felt like doing a little rainbowy/unicorny to celebrate my friends. Just having fun. Let a bitch live.”

OK, first, does anyone actually believe Meghan McCain has any gay friends?
And second, Meghan, if you’re reading, don’t blame us for your complete and utter lack of taste and terrible sense of fashion. We don’t claim you and we certainly don’t need you being “rainbowy/unicorny” on our behalves.
Here’s how folx are responding to Meghan’s tweet…
How can you “celebrate your friends” when you support the party that is actively trying to strip them of their rights and discriminate?!

Got the bitch part right

You need to break up with your stylist.
— West Peg (@WestPeg) June 30, 2021
How about that anti-trans blog site your husband runs? You have no place in any Pride conversation. I don’t care what your one gay friend says.
— SeanBenét Ramsey (@sean_fry8) June 30, 2021
The biggest joke here is you pretending to celebrate Pride, while actively working to support candidates who will & have done everything in their power to take away equality for this community.

You’re stylist clearly hates you, lol.

Love the performative activism . Your party does not not support the LGBT community

It’s pride month not month. GET A CLUE. Your husband makes fun of this on Fox News doesn’t he????
