Hours after ‘The View’ host Meghan McCain’s contentious appearance on NBC’s Late Night on Tuesday night, her husband, Ben Domenech, took to Twitter to spew his unfiltered rage directed at the host, Seth Meyers.
The Daily Beast on Wednesday documented Domenech’s string of since-deleted inflammatory tweets attacking Meyers that was “at times homophobic and at others suggested that he has only succeeded in comedy because he is a white man.”
Domenech, the founder and publisher of the conservative website The Federalist, wrote: “I see that @sethmeyers, the untalented piece of shit who only has has job because he regularly gargled Lorne Michaels’ balls, went after my wife tonight with his idiotic anti-Semitic bullshit.”
He was referring to the contentious portion of McCain’s interview with Meyers in which the host called the comments she had made about Ilhan Omar’s supposed anti-Semitism “dangerous.”
“Seth is an awful person who is known within the industry for how terrible he is,” Domenech baselessly tweeted. “He is a monumental asshole who is utterly unfunny. He deserves the mockery he receives from all the people who laugh at him?”
“Here is proof that white men get ahead despite their obvious lack of talent,” he continued. “It’s @sethmeyers, who would beg for a third of the viewers at @TheView. He’s awful, untalented, and a perfect definition of a cuck,” he added, referring to a popular far-right pejorative.
“But the best thing is how much all the people around @sethmeyers talk about what a shitty person he is. Because oh, it is sad. So terrible. But he deserves all of it,” he added in another tweet.
Asked for clarification on his comments by Mediaite, he said: “Seth Meyers is trash. I believe this steadfastly and have for years. He only has his job because of sucking up to the right people. He is an untalented hack. My reference was obviously metaphorical and that’s it.”
Domenech later posted an apology on Twitter for “rage-tweeting” while again calling Meyers a “hack.”
I love my wife. I apologize for rage tweeting about how Seth Meyers treated her. I don't like him, I think he's a hack, but I shouldn't have done that. I'm sorry to anyone I offended.
