Meghan McCain Drops Knowledge On Glenn Beck About Fat Shaming

Remember when Glenn Beck made headlines by doing a horrendously long and embarrassing “fake vomit” bit about having to see Meghan McCain’s disgustingly fat, um, shoulders and face in a PSA she filmed to remind people not to give themselves skin cancer? Meghan responded in a swift and classy fashion with an article in The Daily Beast (published earlier this month), and this week she brought her message to a much wider audience with her appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.

“I just am gonna let what he said speak for itself, and no man will ever make me a victim, least of all Glenn Beck,” she said. “This is a very toxic message that’s being sent to young women…beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.” Indeed!

The good news is that “young women” are not really in Glenn Beck’s demographic of “insane straight white dudes who want to protect their privilege at all costs,” so probably not very many of them had to hear it. I also appreciate the fact that Meghan pointed out his bit was not funny, like, not even a little. I was offended as both a woman and a lover of good jokes. What did humor ever do to him to deserve to be murdered thus?

I might not agree with all of Meghan McCain’s politics, but one thing she consistently gets right is sending a positive message to girls about body image. If John McCain has to exist, I’m glad at least this one small bit of good karma has issued from his loins.

      I love pretty much everything about Meghan McCain.

      (but then I also voted for her father, so, whatever)

      “If John McCain has to exist…”?

      I have massive issues with McCain’s politics and personal life, but Jamie, I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess you wouldn’t last 2 days as a POW, being hung from your arms until you can no longer use them correctly. McCain managed to endure far more than you’ll ever know or understand. Try not to sound like SUCH a spoiled millennial douchebag, m’kay?

        Hair loss problem is undergone due to some inherited sex disorders in both males and females but is more common in one sex. It is controlled by an allele that is expressed as dominant in one sex but recessive in the other. This difference in expression is due to hormonal difference between the opposite sexes.

        In the ancient time it’s an immaterial to elevate the hair strengthen and improving due to myriad sorts of reasons as maybe a having no medical and biological treatment for this problem but in this modern age it’s an imperative to recycle the hairs for the attractive physical look and for the beautiful complexion.

      Kathy– I’m going to give Jamie the benefit of the doubt and assume that by “exist” she didn’t mean “be alive” but rather “exist as a fairly influential public figure.” And I don’t think that someone having suffered a great deal, even at the service of his country, means that he should be given a platform for political influence. He deserves respect as a veteran, but that doesn’t mean he needs to be respected as a political figure. They are two completely different things. And the argument of “you wouldn’t last 2 days as a POW” is irrelevant– Jamie’s not allowed to criticize someone because she hasn’t been hung up by her arms? If that were a requirement for people being allowed to express opinions, we as a country would be screwed.

        You hit the nail on the head. I don’t wish DEATH on the man, but I wish he’d just retire to the beautiful deserts of Arizona and stop messing with our country. Then again, I wish that of most politicians.
