Meghan McCain Compared Herself to Daenerys Targaryen and Got Roasted On Twitter
Fans are used to seeing Meghan McCain say wild things. But one of her latest remarks is sending them over the edge. McCain recently compared herself to Daenerys Targaryen from the HBO series Game of Thrones after clashing with her The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg — and Twitter users can’t take it.
What happened between Meghan McCain and Whoopi Goldberg?
On the Dec. 16 episode of The View, McCain and Goldberg got into an argument while discussing President Donald Trump’s impeachment inquiry. During the conversation, McCain started overtalking her co-hosts, prompting a heated response from Goldberg.
“Girl, please stop talking. Please stop talking right now because you know what?” Goldberg responded.
“No problem,” McCain interjected. “I won’t talk for the rest of the show.”
“Okay, I’m okay with that,” Goldberg said. “I’m okay with that if you’re going to behave like this.”
McCain once again interrupted and tried to defend herself but Goldberg shut her down and went to a commercial break.
Meghan McCain vents on Twitter
After their spat, McCain spoke out on Twitter. She suggested that she’d been shut down because she’s a conservative and said that she’ll continue to share her opinion “even if it angers people.”
“Pointing out things that are true is part of my job even if it angers people and even if it’s politically inconvenient,” she captioned a photo of a poll from RealClearPolitics showing that more people disagree with Trump’s impeachment than those who agree.
“Pretending half the country doesn’t exist won’t make them disappear,” she continued. “The culture war is real, and Americans who aren’t part of the overwhelmingly anti-conservative media deserve to have their views represented.”
A day later, she tweeted, “Good morning – to all the fellow conservative ‘girls’ who won’t be quiet.” The post included a GIF of the warrior princess Daenerys Targaryen from GOT. But what McCain probably didn’t realize is that Targaryen turned into a villain and committed genocide in the last season of the show.
Twitter roasts Meghan McCain
Many Twitter users didn’t hesitate to call McCain out, with one person saying, “daenerys banged her nephew and committed genocide but go off.”
“Meghan played herself with this gif,” someone else wrote.
Another asked, “You, you didn’t watch the end of this, did you?”
On the flip side, others argued that the GIF was fitting.
“Given what Dani does with power, for power, at the end of the series; this is such a fitting meme,” one person wrote.
Another person tweeted, “To be fair, they have something important in common. Both Danaerys and Meghan felt entitled to lofty jobs they weren’t qualified for because of who their father was and their last name.”
Then there were some who totally backed McCain, with one man tweeting, “Yes!!!!!!! You have an army behind you. Never forget that. We got you.”
Meghan McCain and Whoopi Goldberg later made up
On the Dec. 17 episode of The View, Goldberg and McCain addressed their debate and said that there truly are no hard feelings.
Goldberg noted that while “stuff happens on this show,” the drama is “part of what we do.”
“So everybody just calm down,” she continued. “It’s a TV show. We’re on together for an hour and we step in poopy, OK? We step in poopy and stuff happens and everybody just calm down.”
McCain agreed, saying that she and Goldberg “get along great.” She added, “I love you very much. I’ve loved you for a long time. You were good friends with my dad [John McCain]. We fight like we’re family. It’s all good.”
In regards to their fighting, McCain added, “I don’t think anybody at home loves it, anyone in the country, but it is representative of what’s going on in the country and it’s raw and real. We’re passionate women. I’m hyper, hyper-conservative. Everybody else at the table is not and sometimes we’re going to clash heads.”
Good point. But maybe they should leave the GOT references out of it next time. Just a thought.
