Meghan McCain’s Husband Loses It on ‘Cuck’ Seth Meyers: ‘Untalented Piece of Sh*t’ Who ‘Gargled Lorne Michaels’ Balls’

Ben Domenech, husband of The View co-host Meghan McCain, had a somewhat negative reaction to Late Night host Seth Meyers‘ debate with McCain, tweeting that Meyers is not among the ranks of talented excrement, and that he has the ability to gargle solid objects, namely Lorne Michaels‘ testicles.

On Tuesday night’s edition of Late Night with Seth Meyers, Ms. McCain and Mr. Meyers had a tense debate over McCain’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in the wake of the Poway synagogue shooting, and while Meyers appeared to be trying to extract something like an apology from McCain, she stood by all of her comments and accused Meyers of acting as Omar’s publicist.

Early Wednesday morning, Domenech, the publisher of The Federalist, fired off a series of tweets accusing Meyers of anti-Semitism, talentlessness, and the aforementioned ball-gargling.

“I see that @sethmeyers, the untalented piece of shit who only has his job because he regularly gargled Lorne Michaels’ balls, went after my wife tonight with his idiotic anti-Semitic bullshit,” Domenech said in one tweet.

“Seth is an awful person who is known within the industry for how terrible he is. He is a monumental asshole who is utterly unfunny. He deserves the mockery he receives from all the people who laugh at him,” read another.

“Here is proof that white men get ahead despite their obvious lack of talent: 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,” Domenech concluded.

Domenech has since deleted the tweets. The screenshot above comes courtesy of Twitter user Lauren W.

In a statement to Mediaite, Domenech clarified that the ball-gargling was not meant to be taken literally.

“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 wrote.

Metaphorical or not, the reference is still homophobic, an offense for which Domenech fired blogger Denise McAllister just a few weeks ago. At this rate, nobody is going to be at anyone’s wedding anytime soon.

Update: Domenech has since tweeted that “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.”
