McCain has been known to address her critics. Last September, after an article titled "The View Sets Return Date, Fans Excited for Comeback, But Not for Meghan McCain" ran, McCain released a lengthy statement about how "our culture is so deeply toxic for women."
"We are punished for being tough, opinionated and not backing down while men are celebrated for it. You want to know why we still don’t have a woman president although it’s WELL past time? Because we raise women to be strong, independent, smart, empowered and to speak their mind and then turn around and viciously punish them once they do," she wrote in part. "And then subsequently proceed to demand they be more 'likable,' 'warm,' 'softer,' 'smile more,' 'be non threatening' blah blah blah. Well f**k that."
