Meghan McCain called out Prince Harry for his comments on the First Amendment on Twitter, following his podcast with Dax Shepard.
"The View" co-host Meghan McCain called out Prince Harry on Twitter this week, for the comments he made during his podcast interview with Dax Shepard and Monica Padman on their podcast, "Armchair Expert."
Prince Harry had a lot to say during the Podcast. He touched on a wide variety of topics, including parenthood, growing up as a royal, and his life in American. Some people, including, Meghan McCain were not happy about what he said.
PRINCE HARRY DISCUSSES THE FIRST AMENDMENT
Prince Harry criticized the First Amendment in relation to the paparazzi. He explained that people are able to find a loophole in anything, First Amendment included, and exploit it for capital gain. He then continued and said:
"I’ve got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers."
The Duke made sure to express that he does not completely understand the workings of the First Amendment as he has been living in the USA for a short period of time.
OTHERS COMMENT ON PRINCE HARRY'S STATEMENT
A few political and public figures took to Twitter to share their opinions on Prince Harry's First Amendment comment. Senator Ted Cruz tweeted that it was nice of Harry to say that.
The Duke of Sussex also touched on life with his wife and son in America.
While Rep Dan Crenshaw of R-Texas tweeted that the size of his Independence Day party had just doubled after Harry's comments. Former Brexit leader Nigel Farage said Harry had lost the plot when he condemned the First Amendment.
For Prince Harry to condemn the USA's First Amendment shows he has lost the plot. Soon he will not be wanted on either side of the pond.— Nigel Farage (@Nigel_Farage) May 15, 2021
MEGHAN MCCAIN CALLED OUT THE DUKE OF SUSSEX
McCain shared a Daily Wire article about Prince Harry's comments, alongside which she tweeted her own opinion of Harry's comments. She started off by saying that because the USA fought a war in 1776, they did not care what Harry had to say and continued:
"That being said, you have chosen to seek refuge from your homeland here and thrive because all of what our country has to offer."
She wrote that one of the biggest things her country has to offer is the First Amendment. McCain ended her tweet by telling Prince Harry to show respect for First Amendment.
We fought a war in 1776 so we don’t have to care what you say or think.— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) May 17, 2021
That being said, you have chosen to seek refuge from your homeland here and thrive because all of what our country has to offer and one of the biggest things is the 1st amendment - show some utter respect. https://t.co/Xy1aU988Ui
