“The View” co-host Meghan McCain blasted Elle Magazine in a series of tweets over an unflattering profile – and McCain’s high-profile friends have come to her defense.

The August 2019 issue of Elle features a cover headline and accompanying profile, “Meghan McCain is having a bad week,” but the conservative pundit feels she is having more than simply a “bad week,” as her father John McCain died this year and she also suffered a devastating miscarriage.

The article goes on to state the following:

McCain called the headline “particularly sh-tty” and expressed regret for speaking with the women’s magazine.

“I guess this is why people don’t talk to journalists and never tell them anything real,” McCain wrote. “Also, to anyone else who has ever had a bad week (or more) as I have. Don’t let magazines like @ELLEmagazineshame you to be honest & open- never be embarrassed to talk or share grief, pain, real life, struggle.”

McCain continued, “Also, to anyone else who has ever had a bad week (or more) as I have. Don’t let magazines like @ELLEmagazine shame you to be honest & open- never be embarrassed to talk or share grief, pain, real life, struggle. I thank God there are so many resources and people out there to help.”

In a third tweet, she said, “I also want to say I am 14 days away from the anniversary of my dads death and petrified of what the day is going to feel like. I made a conscious choice to share my grief journey publicly so others would feel less alone – and would do it all over again.”

“Anyways, I’m going back to my husband and Wyoming. I realize a this is a small thing in the scheme of things but I just don’t know why women’s magazines don’t do a better job trying to lift other women up, especially in 2019 (even if you disagree with their politics),” McCain concluded.

Fox News anchor Julie Banderas came to McCain’s defense in the following tweet:
