Meghan McCain to Weight Critics: Kiss My Fat Ass!

by at . Comments

Meghan McCain is sick of the debate about her weight.

After the 24-year-old daughter of U.S. Senator and former GOP presidential hopeful John McCain criticized Anne Coulter and other conservatives in an online column, political commentator Laura Ingraham heckled her on her radio show last week.

Ingraham tore into Meghan McCain as "just another Valley Girl gone awry," and even went on to mock McCain in a faux Valley Girl voice, saying that she didn't get a "role in the Real World" because "they don't like plus-sized models."

Ouch. Hitting back on The View today, Meghan McCain said she can't believe Ingraham went after her weight instead of actually talking about the issues.

"What do young women think when I speak my mind about politics, and I want to have a political discussion about the ideological future of the Republican party, and the answer is, 'she's fat, she shouldn't have an opinion?'" she said.

"What kind of message are we sending young women? ... It infuriates me. I'm a political writer on a blog, and all of a sudden I'm too fat to write?"

"I couldn't possibly imagine how any woman could criticize another woman's weight. I work out at the gym and try and eat healthy, but I'm still a size 8."

Enduring taunts about her body since she was in grade school, Meghan McCain - a vocal campaign supporter of her dad last year - said she is fed up.

"Why are we so obsessed with weight?" she said.

"When Tyra Banks went on her show in her bathing suit and said, 'Kiss my fat ass...' That's what I feel right now. I'm like, 'Kiss my fat ass!'"

Added McCain, "There is no place for weight criticism in 2009."

Amen, Megs. An exchange of bad political ideas shouldn't have to devolve into fat jokes. Click to enlarge more Meghan McCain photos below ...

Sorry but she is fat. We can pretend everyone is beautiful but that won't change men's actual preferences. And no fat women you aren't beautiful and skinny women aren't bitches. Skinny women are just women who are less lazy and go to the gym.

Excuse me, what is all this chatter about Ms. McCain??? Is she speaking for the Republican Party? I don't think so........ All we need is another pair of loose lips in the GOP.
Ms. McCain is totally out of her element when she tries to take on Ann Coulter and Laura Inghram. They will literally eat her up. Ms. McCain does not have the intelligent or stamina to keep up with them.
Basically, Ms. McCain doesn't have anything to do with anything, other than being the daughter of John McCain. She needs to find something else to keep her busy. Who really cares if she is fat or not??? Really, who cares? Her dad needs to tell her to shut the F up.

I worry about people who look, act and weigh 95 lbs like
Ann Coulter. Maybe if she would gain weight to a size 8
it may change her into a decent human being. You look great
Ms. Mccain

Size 8? Reality Check Ingraham; that isn't fat.

You are in no way a size 8, Ms. McCain. And you are no Republican. Spend a little more time educating yourself and a little more time in the gym and someday, you will not only be a healthy size 8...but an educated human being (your time in the limelight is over...move on....maybe on the treadmill for starters). And for you hypocrits who are bashing thin woman...are you any better than people who bash obese woman? No! Be the size you are...but don't lie about it...own it and realize it is an ever-changing number that really means nothing above and beyond what part of the store you will be shopping in.

She looks great. But no way is she a size 8. Which dosent even matter. Dont make others comments change what you say or think about yourself. Being a size 10 or 12 is perfect. And is in no way fat!

What do you expect from the Republicans...this is what they do to anyone they whose opinion they don't like...they go after the person themselves, not the person's ideas by simply debating it or pointing out what might be wrong with the particular view, but actually tearing that person apart on a very personal level...and these are the same people who love to bring up God and what God's word says and on and on...yet they are hateful and mean spirited even to their own...trust me, God would probably want nothing to do with them and their hateful ways
