USA Today Wonders If Meghan McCain Threw ‘Side-Eye’ At VP Pence

Amber Athey White House Correspondent

USA Today published a report on Friday questioning whether Meghan McCain was throwing “side-eye” at Vice President Mike Pence during her father’s memorial.

Republican Arizona Senator John McCain laid in state at the U.S. Capitol building on Friday. The war hero passed away on Saturday night at the age of 81 after a long battle with brain cancer.

Vice President Mike Pence attended the memorial service and delivered a touching eulogy for his fellow public servant. The McCain family smiled at several points during his tribute, but Meghan McCain was still clearly dealing with the tragedy of losing her beloved father.

Despite the gravity of the situation, USA Today apparently thought it was appropriate to write a report about social media users being “convinced” that McCain was sneaking angry glances at Pence.

“Observers on Twitter were certain Meghan McCain was channeling some of her anger at Trump in Pence’s direction as he spoke,” reporter William Cummings wrote.
