Meghan McCain's Also Terrible Husband Attacks Seth Meyers Because Everything's Ridiculous

Media/Entertainment

Meghan McCain, that living testament to meritocracy, was a guest on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" last night, and we give her some credit for showing up. Megs McCabe had to know Meyers probably doesn't like her very much because he's a decent guy and it's scientifically impossible for decent people to like Megs McCabe.

Meyers called out McCain for her obsessive attacks of escalating grossness against Rep. Ilhan Omar. McCain, who we hear is the daughter of John McCain, recently tried to pin offensive-ish comments Omar had made to the extremely offensive bullets fired in a California synagogue. Meyers thought that was foul. After all, Omar has been the target of escalating death threats herself. She already has to deal with the president putting rhetorical targets on her back. She doesn't need a pile-on from the daughter of the guy who lost the presidency.


Here's a clip of the interview:

No, wait, that's someone who mattered. This is the actual interview with Megs McCabe.

You shouldn't watch more of McCain than absolutely necessary. We already fell on that sword for you. There was some pointless banter about her totally earned-on-her-own-merits "Saturday Night Live" internship. She then expressed dismay that power-hungry fraud Lindsey Graham cares more about Donald Trump, who is both alive and president, than he does her father, who is neither.

When pressed on her Omar comments, McCain stood firm in her grossness, as she probably believes is her birthright.

MCCAIN I think the Democrats are hedging on this [THEY ARE NOT, YOU LYING HACK], and I think it's very dangerous, and I think Chuck Schumer and I are in alignment about Israel's stance in geopolitical politics.

You "agree" with Chuck Schumer. This isn't a corporate boardroom, because only half the people talking are assholes. GTFOH with this "we are in alignment" shit.

MCCAIN: I think it's of the utmost importance — and I think [Omar] is bringing her party to the extreme…to the extremism on this. [SHE IS NOT] I stand by every single thing I've said, and if that makes me unpopular in this room or in front of you, so be it.

Meyers was exceedingly polite and deferential, but he wouldn't let her drop a deuce of right-wing talking points about Omar on his show. He reacts to McCain like the cool principal dressing down a smug, high school mean girl, except she is probably cool and this is Megs McCabe.

MEYERS: See, that's a weird thing, that you can take the position of trying to be 'unpopular.' Here I am trying to find the common ground on this.

Meyers also took McCain to task for constantly bringing up Omar's two dumb tweets while "forgetting" that Omar apologized for both of them, which is more than Trump and most Republicans do about anything offensive they say. McCain responded like the petulant child she is.

MCCAIN: Are you her publicist?

MEYERS: No, I'm just someone who cares about the fact that there's someone out there who is in a minority, who has had death threats against her, and I think that we should all use the same language. You're asking her to be careful about her language and I'd ask everyone to be careful about theirs.

Ben Domenech, who is McCain's husband and publisher of equally awful The Federalist, apparently watched an entirely different version of this interview. It was from the mirror universe where a goateed Meyers slung sulfuric acid in McCain's face. He flipped the fuck out on Twitter in now deleted tweets that still exist because of screenshot technology.

Meyers said nothing that was in any way anti-Semitic. Meyers is also of Jewish descent. He's married to a Jewish woman, and his children are Jewish. He does not personally consider himself Jewish because, unlike Megs McCabe, his father wasn't BFFs with Joe Lieberman.

Domenech crudely claims Meyers only has his current job because he "regularly gargles Lorne Michaels' balls." Fun fact: Domenech very recently fired DC McAllister, the "Denise" who was at his wedding, for tweeting equally homophobic garbage. Domenech then pulled a Trump and claimed Meyers would "beg for a third" of the viewership that watches "The View" despite his wife's toxic presence. He called Meyers the "perfect definition of a cuck," and in a total "un-cuck-like" move, he shared catty rumors about how everyone close to Meyers thinks he sucks.

He must've sobered up come to his senses this morning and tweeted this nonsense.

Domenech doesn't have to apologize for loving Megs McCabe. We respect all alternative lifestyles here. However, he should've actually apologized to Meyers like an actual grownup. He would've seemed like less of a hypocrite given that he bemoaned the lack of "public civility" just a few months ago.

We realize that we've just dragged Megs McCabe for almost 1,000 words, so we should steel ourselves for some potential "ball-gargling" grade school insults. We might never recover.

Last week, Yr Dok Zoom talked a little bit about his damn dissertation, which looked at "Wabbit Literacy," the weird thing where we sometimes learn about the world from parodies and jokes long before we ever encounter the original stuff -- like learning about opera from cartoons. More than one person in the comments (which Wonkette does not allow and yet, like life, you find a way) mentioned they were disappointed, as kids, to learn that while roadrunners are real birds, the actual critter looks nothing like this:

Which is not to say that real roadrunners are the least bit disappointing, as animals go, because they're freaking incredible. Yes, even if they don't actually leave lines of flame down the center line of desert highways and go "Meep! Meep!" But they can sprint up to 20 miles per hour, which is faster than you, albeit slower than a real coyote's top speed. Also, yes, real coyotes are among the predators what eat roadrunners, which is why the wily birds adopted the evolutionary strategy of running right through fake tunnels coyotes paint on the sides of mountains.

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."
