Meghan McCain Fires Back at Ann Coulter’s Lethal Joke

Apr 11, 2013 12:03pm

They’re at it again–  Ann Coulter and Meghan McCain are in a Twitter war. The reason for the bickering? Ann Coulter stated that Meghan McCain should be killed in a blog posted on her own website, as well as Fox Nation.

 ”MSNBC’s Martin Bashir suggested that Republican senators need to have a member of their families killed for them to support the Democrats’ gun proposals. (Let’s start with Meghan McCain!)” the blog said before it was taken down earlier this morning.

McCain responded with a series of Tweets:

Apparently Ann Coulter made a joke about me being killed in a recent column. I should expect nothing less but disgusted regardless.

The feud between the two conservative women has a long-standing history. Three years ago, McCain wrote an opinion column for The Daily Beast airing her grievances with the Republican Party, and cited Coulter as one of the individuals who perpetuates negative stereotypes:

“…certain individuals continue to perpetuate negative stereotypes about Republicans. Especially Republican women. Who do I feel is the biggest culprit? Ann Coulter. I straight up don’t understand this woman or her popularity. I find her offensive, radical, insulting, and confusing all at the same time… I hope viewers understand Ann Coulter is not the woman we Republicans need representing us right now”

Cindy McCain, Meghan’s mother and wife of  Senator John McCain, also jumped in the battle in defense of her daughter:

 

Coulter has not responded to either of the McCain women. The posts have also been taken down from both Fox Nation and her own blog. Coulter’s representatives said she was not available for comment.
