Washington, Mar.25 (ANI): Republican Senator John McCain’’s daughter, Meghan has revealed that she is a great fan of President Barack Obama and his policies.
She told CNN’’s “Larry King Live” Tuesday night, that her support was for her father’’s campaign opponent, President Obama.
“He’’s our president and when the election was over and when President Obama won, all negative feelings were gone,” McCain said on the CNN show. “I support the president.”
Meghan McCain, a columnist for TheDailyBeast.com, also tried to take the high road after conservative radio host Laura Ingraham had joked about the 24 year-old’’s weight last week.
“As far as I”m concerned with what’’s going on with Laura Ingraham, on my end, it’’s over,” McCain told King.
“There are nine million women in this country suffering from eating disorders. And I”m not going to be bullied around about my weight and what kind of standards I”m not fitting.”
In the past few weeks since she started her career as a political columnist, McCain has angered conservatives - especially after she blasted pundit Ann Coulter, calling the author, “offensive, radical, insulting, and confusing all at the same time.”
“I have taken heat, but in fairness to me, I am a different generation than the people that are giving me heat,” McCain told King. “I”m 24 years old. I”m not in my 40s, I”m not in my 50s and older.” (ANI)
