Katrina Pierson throws savage shade at Meghan McCain for claiming to represent GOP

President Donald Trump’s campaign adviser and spokesperson Katrina Pierson took a mercilessly savage shot Thursday morning at “The View” co-host Meghan McCain.

Responding to an interview published Tuesday in which McCain had told Entertainment Tonight that she represents the “50 percent of the country” that is conservative, Pierson posted a tweet on Thursday claiming, in short, that McCain ain’t no conservative, to put it bluntly.

Look:

Not only was this tweet a diss of McCain, whose deceased father had been a GOP senator, but it was also a diss of McCain’s “The View” colleague Abby Huntsman, who’s the daughter of former Republican Utah Gov. and current Trump administration Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman. Like their fathers, both McCain and Huntsman identify as Republicans.

In the interview with Entertainment Tonight, McCain had expressed her frustration at being surrounded by and constantly arguing with her liberal co-hosts.

“Sometimes I’m calm, sometimes I’m not,” she said. “People who watch the show know that. I try to just remind myself that I’m representing 50 percent of the country. I’m representing a bunch of women even though I only have one chair, and it’s really important.”

It’s unclear why she feels that only she represents “50 percent of the country,” given as Huntsman is also reportedly a Republican just like her.

McCain continued the interview by comparing herself to Republican socialite Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who co-hosted “The View” from 2003 to 2013.

“I also try to think of what Elisabeth Hasselbeck used to mean to me when I was young, because I used to watch ‘The View’ in college,” McCain said. “And she was really such an icon for young Republican women, and I hope I’m giving that to anyone who’s watching. And I know there’s like — I know because I was just in Wyoming — I know there are people in the country that feel like they’re really happy that someone’s representing them.”

If McCain is so proud of being a conservative — one who admittedly earned widespread praise from fellow conservatives earlier this week for her passionate defense of the Second Amendment — then why did Pierson feel compelled to malign her as a fake Republican?

For one, the two have been locked in a feud for years now, in large part because of the slimy behavior of McCain’s father. Last year, Pierson reposted an old story from 2017 about how her father had still been refusing to answer questions about the role he’d played in funneling the infamous Steele dossier to both the FBI and the media.

In a since-deleted reply, McCain described her as “one of the dumbest people ever to work for Trump.”

Look:

To be clear, McCain’s father never did answer questions about his proven role in distributing the debunked Steele dossier. In one case, he even grew angry when asked specifically about distributing the dossier to the media.

Another factor that may be relevant to Pierson’s latest attack on McCain is her tendency to act like her father, who was arguably very much so a RINO, i.e., a Republican in name only.

Over the past few years she’s unnecessarily:

Attacked the Trump administration, despite its policies being described even by some “Never Trumpers” as ““some of the most conservative governance of my lifetime.”

Accused the contemporary Republican Party of lacking character.

Praised the Democrat Party’s most radical member, freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, i.e., the same radical responsible for the “Green New Deal.”

Thrown legendary comedian Roseanne Barr under the bus for an “offensive” joke.

Etc., Etc., Etc.

It’s perhaps because of all these quite non-conservative actions that so many have come out of the woodwork to lavish Pierson — not McCain — with praise and support.

Look:

As of noon Thursday, McCain had not yet responded to Pierson’s latest attack.
