‘RINO’ Republican Adam Kinzinger’s tendency to shoot from the hip on Twitter has drawn an angry response from Meghan McCain after the outgoing congressman called her husband a “piece of human garbage” during a heated exchange on the social media platform.
The emotional Kinzinger was triggered by an exchange between McCain’s husband Ben Domenech and a former Marine Corps officer who penned an op-ed for Fox News accusing Republicans of turning their backs on veterans by blocking a bill ostensibly to expand health benefits for vets exposed to toxic substances including from burn pits that was used by Democrats to cloak hundreds of billions in pork and pet projects.
In his Fox News column, Lucas Kunce who detailed his own health problems stemming from being in proximity to the burn pits while stationed in Iraq, shamed GOP senators and called for an end to the filibuster, the last remaining obstacle to the tyranny of a power-drunk Democratic Party that views the nation’s institutions with extreme content, particularly the legislative procedure that protects the minority.
Domenech, who in addition to being McCain’s husband is also the co-founder of the conservative website The Federalist, shot back at Kunce over his demand to blow up the filibuster.
“What authoritarian horsecrap,” he wrote. “You do not get to sweep away the tenets of government because it doesn’t accord to your wishes.”
Your position @LucasKunceMO is that we need to get rid of the filibuster because of a vote on burn pits? What authoritarian horsecrap. You do not get to sweep away the tenets of government because it doesn't accord to your wishes. https://t.co/y7dCejhVXc

The two then traded shots with Domenech writing, “I don’t think we needed to pay you to travel across the world and murder brown people, Lucas. You should probably send that money back.”

That drew a typically unhinged response from Kinzinger who is, himself, a military veteran.
“There are moments i really with i could say much more. But this piece of human garbage @bdomenech is married to John McCains daughter and just said military people murder brown people, re burn pits. Trumpism destroys souls. F you Ben. I wish i could see you in person now…,” he wrote, seeming to suggest that he would kick Domenech’s ass outside of Twitter.

Kinzinger’s outburst wasn’t warmly greeted by John McCain’s daughter who fired back.
“Hi Adam, you know me more than “John’s daughter”, you have my #,” she wrote. “This tweet is beneath you, neither me nor my husband are trumpers.”
“Also you married and procreated with someone who worked on Trumps campaign and in Pence’s office helping the administration… Let’s not do this,” the combative former co-host of “The View” added.

McCain was referring to Kinzinger’s own spouse, Sofia Boza-Holman who was employed by the Trump administration, working for both VP Mike Pence and the Department of Homeland Security.
“According to a June 2017 report on White House personnel, she earned a $62,000 salary in that role. In January 2018, Boza-Holman started working under Vice President Mike Pence’s office as the director of strategic media. She remained in that role for two years before shifting to the Department of Homeland Security. She has also served as the deputy assistant secretary of media affairs until August 2020,” according to entertainment and culture website Meaww which reported on Kinzinger’s 2020 wedding.
What McCain seems to be saying is that people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
