Clay Aiken seemingly has one guaranteed vote in the 2022 Congressional election… if only she were from North Carolina.
Republican political commentator and former “The View” co-host Megan McCain took to Twitter to respond to Aiken’s big announcement, writing, “Congratulations on your campaign launch @clayaiken! We love you!” McCain previously had her pal’s back just before leaving “The View,” calling out comedian Kathy Griffin for ‘bullying’ Aiken throughout his career. The celeb alleged Griffin made “very very very cruel and homophobic jokes” about the “American Idol” alum “before he was out of the closet,” according to Page Six. McCain continued, claiming she was shocked Aiken didn’t “end up becoming an opioid addict given the degree of bullying that happened to him when he was still struggling to come out of the closet.”
While McCain and Aiken’s politics are on opposite sides of the political spectrum, supporting her Democrat friend wouldn’t be a first for McCain. The commentator made it clear during the 2020 presidential election where her vote was heading, telling Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live,” “There’s one man who has made pain in my life a living hell and another man who has literally shepherded me through the grief process.” President Joe Biden was an old friend of McCain’s late father Sen. John McCain and consoled Meghan on “The View” when the senator was battling cancer.
