I would not necessarily consider Meghan McCain, daughter of John McCain and current host on The View, an internet superstar. She is active on Twitter, but she gets frequently owned for her tone-deaf tweets and odd takes. She riles a lot of people up! But recently, she tweeted something so purely funny that it instantly became a huge meme. It really took the internet by storm, and it is *Italian chef kiss* beautiful.
It started when McCain was insulted on Twitter by Denise McCallister, a conservative writer and someone who McCain was ostensibly friendly with since Denise was a guest at McCain's wedding. And the rest is history. The internet truly ran with McCain's hysterical comeback, "You were at my wedding Denise," and now it will live on in meme history forever. You simply could not make up such a punchy, perfect sentence. The world needed Meghan McCain to really feel it. And oh, she felt it.
Meghan McCain has recently made headlines for her controversial statements as a host of The View.She cries a lot and says "I'm John McCain's daughter" a lot and generally seems to think like the world is out to get her.
But to be honest, The View seems to exist for drama like the stuff that Meghan McCain brings to the show.Recently, McCain's supposed friend expressed some choice words about the show on Twitter.
Denise McCallister is a conservative writer, and according to this tweet, no fan of The View:A "roundtable of delusional mental midgets," huh? Those are some strong words! And though McAllister didn't name names, the article she linked mentions Meghan McCain.
Conclusions were drawn, and McCain responded with this instantly iconic comeback:
@McAllisterDen @ILMFOrg you were at my wedding Denise....— Meghan McCain (@Meghan McCain)1553566102.0
McAllister quickly backtracked:She claimed that she wasn't talking about McCain but instead about the rest of the hosts of The View. Likely story.
But none of it mattered.

Everyone wanted in on the story of the meme.It might be worth it to restructure your entire life just so you have a genuine excuse to say the sentence, "You were at my wedding Denise." It's that good a sentence.
It's the new "Bye Felicia!"
