Ryan Seacrest, Meghan McCain Embroiled In Obama Feud

Posted: Updated:

Ryan Seacrest is known for sparring on-air with Simon Cowell, but he's now embroiled in war of words with an unlikely foe: Meghan McCain.

McCain was not supportive of President Obama's decision earlier this week to do an interview on Seacrest's radio show.

"there is something so unbelievably desperate and sad about the president going on Ryan Seacrest -exactly WHO is on his communications staff?" she tweeted Monday night.

"No disrespect to Ryan Seacrest but I just don't think The President should be doing an interview with the producer of The Kardahsians," she added.

McCain followed-up on those comments on "The Tonight Show" Wednesday night, telling Jay Leno she found Obama's decision to appear on Seacrest's show "kind of trashy."

"I just think it's not too Presidential to do an interview with the producer of the Kardashians," she said. "I'm one of the people that still holds the office of the Presidency very seriously and I think it's kind of trashy."

On his radio show Thursday, Seacrest responded to McCain's comments by saying that she twice asked to appear on the same radio show she criticized.

"I understand that we are not AC360," Seacrest said. "She thinks [my radio show is] just so low-brow. I just want to be clear, it is the low brow show she wanted to be on twice to come promote her stuff."
