Sen. John McCain’s Daughter, MSNBC Contributor Meghan McCain, Has Harsh Words for Bristol Palin, Sounds Off About ‘Game Change’

Meghan McCain, an MSNBC contributor and the daughter of Sen. John McCain, sounded off about topics including Bristol Palin, reality TV and the HBO movie “Game Change,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

McCain, 27, said in a Playboy interview: "Hell would freeze over before I would do a reality show. I’ve been offered everything you could possibly imagine, and it just doesn’t interest me. You certainly won’t see me dancing on TV.”

The story notes: “The dancing on TV bit seemed to be a dig at Bristol Palin, with whom she hasn’t seen eye to eye since their families campaigned together during the 2008 election. Palin called McCain out in her … memoir, accusing her of being a prima donna, and McCain says their subsequent meeting was less than pleasant.”

Said McCain: "I did bump into her at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, actually. I saw her across the room. That girl biffed it fast, totally took off. All that stuff she wrote was a total lie. I have, like, one Louis Vuitton purse. She’s just young and confused and was thrust into all this. The media aren’t kind to her. But once someone signs up for ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ it’s hard to sympathize."

She also attacked former GOP aides Steve Schmidt and Nicolle Wallace “for supplying the negative information that painted the campaign in a negative light in the book and then film version of ‘Game Change,’” the story reports.

Said McCain: "It is the most egregious disloyalty that I have ever seen in politics. … If they ever had any kind of respect for what hte campaign was, they should show a little more respect for my family and what kind of historic thing they should be a part of.”


  1. If what is being reported as comments from McCain are correct, it sounds like Palin calling her a, “prima donna” is mild compared to what she could have called her. Silly me, I didn’t realize that Meghan McCain was perfect.

  2. Oh, to have such “problems”.
    Being among the ruling class is sooo tough. No matter which of your homes you wish to retreat too you can’t seem to hide from the negative press.
    My dear Megan, if you choose the spotlight, get use to the glare and the heat.

  3. Interesting that in her condemnation of Schmidt and Wallace’s “disloyalty” — she never denies the accuracy of their accounts.
