(Newser) – Woulda-been first daughter Meghan McCain didn't exactly get the royal treatment she was expecting at Saturday's White House Correspondents dinner. She showed up to the exclusive event with two tickets and a party of three, prompting a security guard to question her. "Doesn't he even know who the fuck I am?" she responded, a source told the Daily News. "Meghan got bratty and nastily told him, ‘We’ll just stand here then,’ like an insolent child," the source says.

The evening didn't get better from there. McCain, who blogs for the Daily Beast, "was complaining about everything from the air-conditioning to the wait,” the source said. Wanda Sykes' roast, which included a line about Cindy McCain buying her hubby a helicopter, also got the thumbs-down. "I didn’t like the joke about my mom," Meghan said. "It really wasn’t in good taste.”
