Meghan McCain hit back at criticism about her marriage: ‘This is why I have no patience’

Meghan McCain is speaking out after a journalist criticized her over controversial T-shirts her husband, Ben Domenech, is selling on The Federalist, the conservative media site he co-founded.

Domenech, who married the View co-host in 2017, is peddling shirts that read “Kamala is a Cop,” a jab frequently thrown at presidential candidate Kamala Harris. But Joan Walsh, a correspondent for The Nation and CNN, found the “super-dirty” shirts to be in poor taste.

She included McCain in her criticism, though it is unclear if she was calling The Federalist, or Domenech and his famous wife, “completely creepy.” Either way, she ended her message by tweeting, “Sorry, Meghan.”

CNN host S.E. Cupp objected to Walsh’s tweets, telling her to “just be kind” to McCain.

McCain, meanwhile, stood up for herself by lashing out against “third-wave modern feminism” and the “liberal media,” which she accused of being “bizarrely obsessed by my marriage.” The Republican TV personality claimed “conservative couples” face more scrutiny and argued that it was unfair to blame her for Domenech’s politics because they are “not the same person.”

Her reaction had many commenters trying to set her straight. Some pointed to the attention given to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s marriage, while others claimed that McCain is “complicit” in the controversies surrounding Domenech.

Domenech, meanwhile, recently made headlines after “rage-tweeting” about late-night host Seth Meyers following the former Saturday Night Live star’s tense interview with McCain in early May.
