John McCain’s daughter has once again outdone herself.
On Sunday, Meghan McCain, co-host of The View, responded to someone who said nepotism had played a major role in her career.
“My father died almost 3 years ago,” she wrote. “I’ve been in this industry since I was 22 – when can I get an agency in my life and work? Or are you convinced that my father influences the people of the afterlife on my behalf? My last name got me through the door, my work ethic kept me here.

My last name got me in, my work ethic kept me here. https://t.co/tnUSfoiSwU

To which the whole Internet responded with a collective moan.
There is so much we would love to say right now, but maybe it’s better if we let others do the talking.
Here are the answers…
you are really blind. MDR.

My dad is dead, so it can’t be Twitter nepotism.

Oh honey, keep telling you that.

Each point on which you claim expertise is based on your proximity / access provided by your father.
Go the next 14 years without using him / his name / his experiences and maybe people will stop with nepotism.

Maybe come up with some original thought every now and then instead of just gushing out Republican conspiracies and talking points all the time. Plus, stop mentioning daddy and all those friends around the world as “experts” to support every fucking point! Have respect for others.

Complaining and speaking above people is a “work ethic”? I was wrong all this time. pic.twitter.com/YyoU60E69q

You have spent decades using your father’s name, position, and influence to advance your career, constantly reminding people who your father is / was. It’s your fault that people see you as a nepotism princess.

I’m sorry, Meghan… it’s your name that kept you there too…

And then there are the tweet quotes …
“My name got me through the door” is kind of a big deal. A lot of people work as hard or harder than you but never get those kinds of opportunities. It’s called privilege. There is nothing to be ashamed of, just remember that the next time you explain why other people are not doing as well as you are. https://t.co/Lbd08zFeCS

I mean you only have your career in the first place because of your dad. You can have free will and still exist because of nepotism.
Two things can be true at the same time. https://t.co/w7JCxcUaia

To be fair, you are the one to remind America who your father is. In addition, you are quite weak and talentless, so there is this https://t.co/Kt4BSSJMPk
