Meghan McCain Hates Karl Rove

In “Meghan McCain: ‘I hate Karl Rove,’” Politico’s Kendall Breitman focuses on Meghan McCain’s hatred for Karl Rove during an interview with ORA.tv's Larry King. “I hate Karl Rove and I think he still needs to apologize to my family, which he has not done, for things that happened in 2000.”

During Republican Senator John McCain’s primary run for the presidency, Karl Rove allegedly misinformed the media and said that the family’s recently adopted child from Bangladesh was in fact an illegitimate black love child. The action upset Meghan McCain, who is very family orientated and protective of those she sees being unfairly maligned.  Rove has denied the allegations, but that doesn’t seem to stop the 29-year-old young woman.

As a teenager, Meghan took the offensive language to heart, calling Karl Rove “a disgusting excuse for a human” in “America, You Sexy Bitch: A Love Letter to Freedom,” a book she authored in 2012. Meghan continues the hatred when discussing how Karl Rove treats potential 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

The former Secretary of State’s health and appearance has been criticized by Rove. McCain doesn’t consider that the best strategy. “I think what we saw with Karl Rove talking about her health, though, is sort of just the beginning.” She predicts the recent comments to be “just the tip of the iceberg of what’s going to happen with the attacks on her.”

In the past, McCain told Politico she’s protective of women’s place in politics, especially the criticism for her own political involvement as a Senator’s daughter. "I don't think it's fair to completely demagogue me or put me up on this pedestal. I'm just figuring it out all out." As a socially liberal, fiscally conservative Republican, many hail McCain as the new, millennial Republican but she candidly admits “I'm not speaking for all young Republicans.”

However, she does see Sarah Palin as a good choice for her father’s runnimg mate in 2008 because "I think my father could have had Jesus Christ as his running mate and it wouldn't have mattered." Admitting that her father stood little chance in succeeding.

"John McCain: 'I don't hate Karl Rove,'" is Breitman’s update to the Meghan McCain’s animosity shows the family’s split on Rove’s influence.

The same night that his daughter made sure the world knew she hated Rove, John McCain told Fox News that the Karl Rove attacks in 2000 have been put aside. "I've moved on."

He does mention "family always take these things the hardest” when losing a primary or election. And in reference to Karl Rove’s comments on Clinton, the senator says, “will be subject of a lot of scrutiny from people who are a lot less partisan than Karl Rove is.”

Looks like the family may not be on the same page on the damage of Karl Rove. The younger McCain minces no words on his relevancy: "I don't know why people still give him attention.”
