Meghan McCain, the former lady of The View and daughter of late Senator John McCain, raised eyebrows on Twitter this week when she posted an expletive message against Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake.
Lake, a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump, found herself in McCain’s crosshairs when the hardcore Never Trumper sent a tweet attacking her:
McCain was quote-tweeting a Rightside Broadcasting post about Kari Lake’s Tucson rally at The Maverick, a live country music club in town. Meghan mistook “The Maverick” label on the flier as an insult, suggesting Lake was using her father’s infamous nickname.
Arizona Young Republican National Committeeman Nick Moore pointed out McCain’s now-deleted tweet with a message of his own. Moore calls McCain a coastal elite before using McCain’s message to suggest Lake’s ‘conservative’ primary opponent is backed by “Republicans for Biden:”
During his many decades in Congress, Senator John McCain earned the nickname “Maverick” simply because he failed to support conservative priorities. KTAR reported:
McCain was called a maverick by the media during instances when he would break from his own party, most notably during his 2000 and 2008 presidential runs.
