Meghan McCain got slammed by another late-night host.
John Oliver opened Sunday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” with some cheeky comments about the Eurovision Song Contest. Among the competitors at the event earlier that day: a BDSM-themed band featuring the son of Iceland’s ambassador to the UK.
“You may be thinking that’s the most embarrassing child of a prominent political figure you’ve ever seen — but let me remind you of the continued existence of Meghan McCain!,” Oliver said.
After making “The View” co-host the butt of his joke, Oliver feigned panic, saying, “Oh no! Oh no! Oh, I bet her husband is going to get so mad at me now! What on Earth is he going to tweet and then delete? I can’t wait to find out!”
This is the second round of talk-show trashing the daughter of the late Sen. John McCain has taken in recent weeks. On NBC’s “Late Night” May 8, host Seth Meyers pushed her to address comments she made to George Stephanopoulos in March regarding tweets from Congresswoman Ilhan Omar that some considered to be anti-Semitic.
The exchange got a little heated, spurring McCain’s husband, The Federalist publisher Ben Domenech, to defend his lady’s honor in a series of angry tweets that went viral before being deleted.
Domenech declared the “Saturday Night Live” alumnus to be a “monumental a-hole” and an “untalented piece of s–t who only has his job because he regularly gargled Lorne Michaels’ balls … Seth is an awful person who is known within the industry for how terrible he is.”
He continued: “Here is proof that white men get ahead despite their obvious lack of talent. It’s @sethmeyers, who would beg for a third of the viewers at @TheView. He’s awful, untalented, and a perfect definition of a cuck.”
Domenech hasn’t taken Oliver’s bait yet — but he did apologize for lashing out at Meyers.
“I love my wife. I apologize for rage tweeting about how Seth Meyers treated her,” he tweeted. “I don’t like him, I think he’s a hack, but I shouldn’t have done that. I’m sorry to anyone I offended.”
