Meghan McCain sat down with the ladies of "The View" Monday, railing against Laura Ingraham's insult about her being "plus size," commenting on her parents' visit to the show last year and speaking about her father's feeling of vindication at Obama calling some fundamentals of the economy strong.
McCain, who said she'd never even heard of Ingraham before the "plus sized" comment, called it "terrible" and added, "When Tyra Banks went on her show in a bathing suit and said 'kiss my fat ass,' that's what I feel like. Kiss my fat ass!" McCain has blogged and Tweeted about the subject over the last week.
Asked by Sherri if her parents had been treated fairly when they were on the show last September, she hedged and said, "Obviously when you see the difference between my parents being on and President Obama and Michelle, I think it's obvious." But, she added, "I think we should move forward."
Elisabeth then asked if Senator McCain felt vindicated at having called the fundamentals of the economy strong during his campaign, only for President Obama to use similar language recently. "Yeah, I think so," Meghan responded. "It's ironic it's the exact language and the exact terms he used earlier. I am sure he does feel vindicated."
However, Obama did not use exactly the same language as his former rival. "If we are keeping focused on all the fundamentally sound aspects of our economy, all the outstanding companies, workers, all the innovation and dynamism in this economy, then we're going to get through this," Obama said last week. McCain simply stated that the "fundamentals of our economy are strong."
