“No Peace, B*tch”: Meghan McCain Slams Kari Lake Over Effort to Mend Relations With McCain Supporters in Arizona Senate Race

Meghan McCain, daughter of the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) harshly rejected an effort by Arizona Republican Senate candidate Kari Lake to mend relations with McCain supporters after criticizing McCain during her run for governor and telling his supporters during a campaign appearance in 2022 to “get the hell out.” McCain posted to Lake, “No peace, b*tch.”

Lake appeared Monday on the Phoenix radio station KTAR-FM show Outspoken with Bruce & Gaydos for a wide ranging discussion on her Senate candidacy. The Arizona Republic reported on Lake’s comments on John McCain (excerpt):

On Monday, she said she jokingly derided McCain a year before the 2022 election.

She said that at the time she was taking “nuclear bomb-style incoming, tens of millions of dollars in attack ads from a McCain Republican.

“It was said in jest. And I think that if John McCain, who had a great sense of humor, would have heard it, he would have laughed.”

Lake said all Republicans “need to get a little bit thicker skin because we’re going through some tough stuff right now and we need to be able to take a joke.”

Meghan McCain posted on X Twitter on Tuesday, “Kari Lake is trying to walk back her continued attacks on my Dad (& family) and all of his loyal supporters after telling them to “get the hell out”. Guess she realized she can’t become a Senator without us. No peace, b*tch. We see you for who you are – and are repulsed by it.”

Kari Lake posted a direct version:

“I joined @KTAR923 to talk with one of my most outspoken critics, @BarryMarkson1. If we’re going to save this country, we have to have the tough conversations and find common ground, even with the people who disagree with us the most. We may always have our differences, but I will never stop working to earn your vote.”

Lake critic and fill-in co-host Barry Markson posted a summary of the interview:

Listen to our interview with Kari Lake today on @OutspokenKTAR
. Kari said several new things:
1. On abortion, Kari now supports the 15 week law or “whatever the people want.” This is a huge change from Kari’s constant push for a ban on all abortions.
2. Kari said she will vote ‘No” on a nationwide abortion ban. Curious how the pro-life folks will take that.
3. Kari is against the abortion pills like the day after pill that ends pregnancies very early and avoids abortions in clinics.
4. I asked Kari three times to tell us who stole the election from her and how they did it. She could not answer the question (because it didn’t happen).
5. Kari wants to end US support for Ukraine now and says we have other things to spend the money on here.
6. Kari said her comment to McCain Republicans to “get the hell out” was a joke, but we later played the full clips from her speech that day and she was attacking McCain, Flake and other Republicans. It was obviously not a joke.
7. Kari said she is a unifier but could not name one Republican from the non MAGA wing of the party that she has brought over to her side. She’s met with many but not one supports her.

Lake knew she was walking into the lion’s den for the interview:
