Meghan McCain Compliments Pelosi, Calls Her A ‘Bad B—-‘ In Photo During Meeting With Trump
House Democrats abruptly left a meeting on Wednesday with President Donald Trump following him making allegedly offensive remarks toward Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
“What we witnessed on the part of the president was a meltdown, sad to say,” Pelosi said in a statement following the meeting, according to previous reporting from HillReporter.com.
“We were offended, deeply, by his treatment of the Speaker of the House of Representatives,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer added.
Trump further insinuated that there were “communists involved” in Syria and within ISIS, adding that Democrats “might like that,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer recounted him as saying, per reporting from The Daily Beast.
After Democrats made their statements, Trump took to Twitter to send a number of messages describing their actions, not his, as being inappropriate during the meeting. Included in these images was one of Pelosi, standing at the table, and pointing as she spoke to the president.
Trump called Pelosi “Nervous Nancy” and “unhinged” in the tweet accompanying the photo. But not everyone saw it that way.
Talk show host Meghan McCain, for example, complimented Pelosi for standing up to Trump.
What is this thing everywhere where tough women who don’t put up with shit are “unhinged”?! Nancy looks like a bad bitch in control of a room entirely filled with men! https://t.co/jHPk51Bm3S

“What is this thing everywhere where tough women who don’t put up with shit are ‘unhinged’?!” McCain wrote in a tweet of her own. “Nancy looks like a bad b—- in control of a room entirely filled with men!”
McCain wasn’t the only one throwing out comments about the encounter. MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough, himself a former Republican congressman, took note of the postures and body language of Trump’s side of the image.
“[L]ook at the people on the president’s side of the table. The generals, the congressmen, the leaders, bowing their heads in shame” because of how Trump behaved,” Scarborough said.
Following Trump’s tweeting of the image, the Speaker of the House made it her cover photo on her Twitter profile.
