Meghan McCain: Defends weight against critic
On Monday Meghan McCain has urged her critics to put an end of the debate on weight. She has said so during an interview in a popular television program.
After twenty four year old Meghan McCain criticized Anne Coulter and other far right conservatives in an online column, Laura Ingraham, the famous political commentator expressed disapproval of her comment on her radio show last week. Laura went to the extent of saying that the daughter of former presidential nominee John McCain was "just another Valley Girl gone awry." She then mocked McCain in a fake Valley Girl voice, and said that she did not get a "role in the Real World" since "they don't like plus-sized models."
At this Meghan reacted by saying that she still could not believe that Ingraham went after her body size.
She added, "What do young women think when I speak my mind about politics, and I want to have a political discussion about the ideological future of the Republican party, and the answer is, 'She's fat, she shouldn't have an opinion?'" "What kind of message are we sending young women? ... It infuriates me. I'm a political writer on a blog, and all of a sudden I'm too fat to write?"
Further Meghan continued, "I couldn't possibly imagine how any woman could criticize another woman's weight. I work out at the gym and try and eat healthy, but I'm still a size 8."
Enduring taunts about her body since she was in grade school, McCain admitted that she is quite fed up now.
She commented, "Why are we so obsessed with weight?" "When Tyra Banks went on her show in her bathing suit and said, 'Kiss my fat ass...' That's what I feel right now. I'm like, 'Kiss my fat ass!'".
