Commentators Meghan McCain, Candace Owens feud on Twitter over vaccines

Following conservative commentator Candace Owens’ interview with former President Donald Trump, fellow commentator Meghan McCain took to Twitter to laud Trump for what she alleged as “schooling” Owens about vaccine success.

The two went back and forth in a series of tweets relating to the vaccines developed under Trump.

“Trump schooling Candace Owens with facts and logic regarding getting the vaccine is really a sight to behold. Credit where credit is due and I hate the guy,” McCain, the daughter of the late GOP Senator John McCain, wrote.

Owens responded several hours later: “Hey Meghan,” she wrote, “did you know that the overwhelming majority of people dying and/or being hospitalized from Covid-19 are clinically obese? People like you love the vaccine because it allows you to pretend that you care about health. People like me see right through that bullsh-t.” 

Owens, who hosts a show on the Daily Wire, interviewed Trump last week, commenting on her skepticism about the effectiveness of the vaccine. Trump responded quickly and said the vaccines are very successful in preventing hospitalizations and death. “People aren’t dying when they take the vaccine,” Trump said. McCain, a columnist for the Daily Mail praised him despite her personal disdain for him.

The two exchanged further remarks in which Owens offered McCain a spot on her show. McCain accused Owens of using an entire Instagram Livestream to discuss her weight.

“You spread misinformation about the safety of vaccines. You’re a danger to public health,” McCain wrote. “Get f—-d.” Owens responded by saying her Instagram Livestream was instead about “Guardasil, DTap, and Hep B vaccines, as planned.” She later wrote, “Also, ‘get f—-d’. Really, Meghan? So gutter and trashy.”
