Meghan McCain Rips Into Kari Lake Over 'Jokes' About Her Father

Kari Lake ran for the Arizona governorship in 2022 and did so in a very unusual fashion. The former news host constantly claimed she would win and if she didn't it would be obvious that the other side cheated. 

Lake also continuously tried to ingratiate herself with the MAGA crowd by regularly bashing John McCain. The problem was that McCain was a wildly popular politician in the state where she was running. And Lake said she didn't want McCain Republicans to vote for her. 

When asked about her comments on a KTR radio appearance, she said, "It was said in jest. And I think that if John McCain, who had a great sense of humor, would have heard it, he would have laughed. I want everyone’s vote, whether you are a McCain … if you call yourself a McCain Republican, if you call yourself a middle-of-the-road Republican, a Trump Republican, an America First Republican, I want your vote."

Meghan McCain wasn't interested in the explanation. She responded via Twitter, "Kari Lake is trying to walk back her continued attacks on my Dad (& family) and all of his loyal supporters after telling them to “get the hell out”. Guess she realized she can’t become a Senator without us. No peace, bitch. We see you for who you are - and are repulsed by it."
