How was your weekend? It was probably better than Meghan McCain‘s.
Meghan–who is John McCain’s daughter, in case anyone forgot–was completely obliterated by Steve Schmidt on Twitter.
It all started when the Washington Examiner reported that her new book “Bad Republican” has only sold 244 copies since its hardcover release last month.
When Schmidt pointed out this piece of factual information, Meghan responded in typical Meghan fashion… by liking a tweet someone wrote falsely accusing him being a pedophile.
And that’s when John McCain’s 2008 campaign manager went off, declaring the former The View co-host a “spoiled rotten, entitled bully” and “fourth generation wannabe” who is wholly “unaccomplished” in life.
“Everyone who has ever worked with Meghan McCain from ABC, The View, Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg and a thousand others have seen the unfiltered version of what the whole of America has seen,” Schmidt wrote, recalling the time he had her kicked off the McCain campaign’s plane in 2008 “because of her outrageous behavior.”
But that was just the opening act.
“I was the first adult that Meghan McCain ever encountered that she heard the word NO from,” he continued in a new thread about the then-24-year-old. “I told her she was unimportant and that the Presidential election wasn’t about her.”
From there, Schmit detailed how Meghan’s own father “was appalled” by her behavior on the campaign trail. He also accused her of throwing “tantrums” that “were beyond anything I have ever witnessed from any other human being.”
“Raging, screaming, crying, at the staff, at the makeup people at Secret Service,” he wrote.
After declaring that he was finally breaking his silence “after 14 years of abuse and attacks,” Schmidt concluded the epic read with a scathing final shot: “She has rejected her Family’s history of service for a shallow and purposeless celebrity where she trades on a famous name like a fourth generation wannabe clipping coupons while pretending to be an heir.”
McCain hasn’t responded to Schmidt’s Twitter tirade against her… probably because she’s still locked in the bathroom crying about it.
Here’s how people on Twitter are reacting to the whole thing…

Meghan McCain: “do you know who my dad is?”
Steve Schmidt: “do YOU know who your dad was?” *unfurls 886-page manifesto and clears throat*

Steve Schmidt completely eviscerating Meghan McCain was the mother's day gift I didn't even know I wanted.

Only someone as soulless and trashy as Meghan McCain would use her dead father’s tombstone to promote her flop of a book. pic.twitter.com/gBye2mw3NX

My tweet about Meghan McCain's book officially has more likes than the amount of people who bought it.

Never bring a Meghan McCain to a Steve Schmidt fight.

I didn’t think this was possible, but Meghan McCain might be having a worse weekend than Madison Cawthorn.

I’m not even gonna lie. I done made it so I get notified when Steve Schmidt tweets. I’m unapologetically here for the next episodes of the “Drag Meghan McCain for Filth While Taking No Prisoners” series.

The Steve Schmidt take down of Meghan McCain is the purest I have seen on Twitter. People are still cleaning up after Meghan in aisle 4.

Who wants to see #TheView have Steve Schmidt on to discuss Meghan McCain?
— W. M. (@Minuteman04) May 8, 2022
I don't get why only 244 copies of Meghan McCain's memoir have been sold so far, do people not know who her father is?

Steve Schmidt has done more Twitter threads on Meghan McCain in the last 24 hours then Meghan McCain has sold books.
