Meghan McCain says it's sexist to call her a 'brat' after Paul Ryan rant

Meghan McCain made a passionate defense of retiring speaker of the House Paul Ryan during Wednesday’s episode of "The View," and not everyone appreciated it. The talk show co-host — who’s also the daughter of Sen. John McCain — said she was “sad” about the departure of Ryan, whom she praised as a “classic conservative.” McCain’s statements about Ryan were met with many tweets accusing her of being “shrill [and] childish” and “obnoxious” in the way she expressed her views.
