Meghan McCain’s ‘You Were at My Wedding Denise’ Clapback Shows Up on Jeopardy
Meghan McCain became a Jeopardy question on Friday night and the View co-host could not be more delighted.
The contestants on the popular game show were given the following prompt as read by Alex Trebek: “Twitter erupted when this co-host of ‘The View’ responded to a critic with a tweet ‘you were at my wedding Denise.’”
The question, in the category celebs on social media, was worth $2000 and the contestant got it right.
The Jeopardy prompt was, of course, inspired by McCain’s viral clapback to conservative commentator Denise McAllister, who had shared an article that appeared to be critical of McCain.
you were at my wedding Denise….

McAllister later said that she did not intend the article as a direct shot at McCain.
I think the photo on the story made it look like this was personally directed at you, Meghan. My comment was directed at The View and the mental midgets who surround you. I don’t even know how you do it daily and my hat is off to you for standing strong in the midst of crazy.

McCain’s remarks quickly inspired Twitter snark.

After the clapback went viral, McCain called the phrase — now a Jeopardy question — her “gift to the internet.”
