This just in: Meghan McCain is releasing a new book. Sort of.
John McCain’s daughter’s latest foray into the literary arts will hit
bookstores streaming services in October. Though it’s being billed as a book, “Bad Republican” is only being released in audio form, not in print.
According to the publisher’s summary, 36-year-old McCain “tells her story — in her own words — inviting listeners inside the unwavering heart and ferocious mind of a young conservative woman who refuses to back down.”
In other words, she just going to talk about herself for five hours and 56 minutes and then package it as a memoir.

According to the publisher’s summary, the “memoir” will cover everything from being John McCain’s daughter to being John McCain’s daughter, with a few chapters devoted to her misadventures on the New York dating scene before she met her husband, noted homophobe and right-wing propagandist Ben Domenech.
McCain, who loved nothing more than to criticize guests on The View who had written tell-all memoirs, will also offer her personal insights on the topics she’s most passionate about, including cancel culture, internet trolls, and her hatred of Donald Trump.
. @MeghanMcCain appears so pleased with herself as she asks Mary Trump a question and then answers the question before Mary has the opportunity to respond. This is more attack than interview. pic.twitter.com/fPXYRXHGZW

Wait-anytime someone was on the view with their memoir, didn’t she have the viewpoint it was purely greed for money? Funny how hypocrisy is so easy for her.

Will Meghan finally reveal who her father is or will we have to catch that on an episode of Maury?

Can we just stop hearing about McCain? Please, @audible_com Does anyone actually like her or do they listen to her out of respect for her amazing father?

Wasn’t she the one railing against behind the scenes tell-all books?

Anyone interested in a drinking game while listening? Take a shot every time she says “my father”
