(Newser) – Meghan McCain wasn't taking any guff from conservative commentator Denise C. McAllister, and ended up creating a meme with her comeback. McAllister on Monday tweeted a criticism of The View, which McCain co-hosts, asking readers to explain to her the purpose of the show and noting that it seems to her to be "a roundtable of delusional mental midgets ricocheting ignorance and lack of emotional regulation." Along with her thoughts, she included a link to this article specifically referencing McCain's role on the show. McCain's response was simple: "you were at my wedding Denise...." The reaction:

  • The Hill says McCain created a "universal clapback," and People calls her response to McAllister "instantly meme-able."
  • UProxx rounds up some of those memes, and HuffPost sums the whole thing up like so: "No One Has Been More Eviscerated By Meghan McCain Than Denise, Who Was At Her Wedding."
