One of my favorite genres of does-not-matter mini-story: when a pretty good Twitter person (like Soledad O’Brien) puts a bad person (Meghan McCain) in their place about a topic I LOVE (socialism).

Wednesday afternoon’s tussle began when O’Brien correctly pointed out that McCain melted down on The View yesterday after her co-hosts yassss queen’d Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who’s a member of the Democratic Socialists of America.

Just as she couldn’t bear to let those supposed untruths about capitalism stand on the air, McCain couldn’t let her good name be sullied on Twitter, tweeting back, mean girl-style:

But it was O’Brien who landed the final knockout blow:

(Do not fret, she also corrected her grammar slip-up.)

McCain’s throughly lame follow-up—“haters gonna hate,” she quote-tweeted—makes it clear who won this round. Tune in tomorrow!!
