Meghan McCain: “I’ve Seen A Therapist” To Deal With Media Reaction To My Body

It’s been several years since “Dirty Sexy Politics” author Meghan McCain made headlines for posting a revealing Twitter photo of herself in a tank top, but the 27-year-old female still has to deal with the media’s unsolicited remarks about her body.
“Now I’m very sensitive to any pictures taken of myself at photoshoots and whatever because the Internet has this very weird…especially people in politics…this very weird reaction to my body because I’m not super skinny, I have large breasts, I know, they’re real, I can’t do anything about it, and like the Internet just has this really weird reaction to my body…I’ve seen a therapist about it,” McCain told Forbes reporter Meghan Casserly at SXSW over the weekend.
McCain, whose weight and appearance have been criticized by conservative commentators Glenn Beck and Laura Ingraham, to name a few, says a lot of people seem to wonder why she hasn’t slimmed down in the aftermath of taking so many hits for her figure.
“I think people don’t understand why I haven’t lost a bunch of weight right now, because ‘all women in the media should lose a bunch of weight if they want to go on television to talk about anything,’” McCain said. “I don’t really need people in politics or people [who are] a little bit older to understand or like me because there’s enough college students out there that seem to like me and that’s all I really care about.”
Thank God for college students, and cheers to McCain for refusing to get down to an unhealthy weight or undergo plastic surgery in response to cruel critics.
