The View’s Meghan McCain has found herself in hot water yet again after she posted a selfie to Instagram. Commenters were quick to call the talk show host out for her choice of t-shirt and the message it relayed. Others, however, thanked the conservative firebrand for bringing attention to the issue.
Meghan McCain’s Support Of Russian Figure Divides Fans
Two of Meghan McCain’s latest Instagram posts have set off a war in her comment section. In both posts, McCain wears t-shirts with the slogan “Free Navalny” in block letters. This campaign refers to Russian lawyer and opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who was allegedly poisoned before being arrested in Russia. According to The View host, Navalny has been mistreated while in prison and his health is in “dire condition” and “continues to deteriorate.”
She went on to claim that Navalny had been “tortured” and “sleep deprived” and was now suffering from a mysterious “respiratory illness.” Some in the comments didn’t take kindly to McCain’s advocating for the Russian politician. One follower wrote, “Girl worry about Americans can we get a breonna Taylor or George Floyd shirt??!”
Another noted that McCain had spoken in favor of Georgia’s recent laws restricting voting access. “Why aren’t you equally outraged and outspoken when it comes to the (Republican) voter suppression in Georgia? Your outrage regarding Navalny might carry a bit more weight.” Yet another commenter simply said, “Free The View.”
Others applauded McCain for bringing up the issue. “Looking [fire emoji] with a message!” one supporter exclaimed. “Thank you for bringing this to the forefront…#freenavalny,” read another comment. McCain has long been a divisive figure, which has made her a target for tabloid speculation. These shady outlets constantly claim that McCain’s job on The View is in danger, but the outspoken conservative has kept her position on the popular talk show despite all the dire whispers otherwise.
