Hours before John Oliver called her “the most embarrassing child of a prominent political figure you’ve ever seen” during Sunday’s episode of Last Week Tonight, Meghan McCain went on Twitter to vent about being portrayed as “hysterical.”

McCain, whom critics have frequently accused of acting “rude” during political debates on The View, asked her Twitter followers why “passionate women” get a bad rap when they express their opinions.

Some sympathized with McCain, with Mia Farrow and actor Michael Ian Black being among those agreeing that women are treated harshly and unfairly.

“The non-hysterical conservative females are bimbos,” added Liz Wheeler, a host on the right-leaning One America News Network. “You can take your pick: bimbo or hysterical or controlled by a domineering husband, according to the left.”

But the tweet has had critics chiming in to blame McCain — who recently clashed with late-night star Seth Meyers over her comments about congresswoman Ilhan Omar, prompting McCain’s husband, Ben Domenech, to blast Meyers as “awful” and “untalented” — and her own behavior for any “hysterical” image she may have.

One called the daughter of late Sen. John McCain a “perpetual victim,” while other McCain critics shot back, “just you.” Several cited recent conflicts she’s had on The View, such as telling co-host Joy Behar “part of your job is to listen to me.”

McCain has not yet addressed the criticism from her detractors.
