Is NBC late-night host Seth Meyers a cuck?
Meghan McCain’s husband certainly thinks so, but recently apologized for “rage tweeting” about Meyers. Ben Domenech took issue with the host’s interview with Meghan in which she was pressed on her comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar’s remarks on 9/11 and her supposed anti-Semitism.
But Domenech’s criticisms of Meyers went off the rails and got WAY too personal.
I love my wife. I apologize for rage tweeting about how Seth Meyers treated her. I don't like him, I think he's a hack, but I shouldn't have done that. I'm sorry to anyone I offended.

Meyers seemed genuinely interested in engaging McCain about the fallout from Rep. Omar’s controversial remarks.
But she remained defiant, insisting that Rep. Omar’s criticisms of Israel are pushing the Democratic party towards the “extreme.” McCain has previously referred to the first-year Congresswoman as “scary.”
Here’s a sampling of Domenech’s now-deleted Twitter rant about Seth Meyers.
People on social media pushed back against Domenech’s childish namecalling.
Since cowardly bully #BenDomenech just blocked me because this screenshot of the gay-bashing, thoroughly unoriginal trash he’s trying to hide is racking up the views, it’d be a shame if anyone retweeted this. To @bdomenech of @FDRLST. pic.twitter.com/RtbMr4FILW

Man, as a liberal striving for common ground, I used to watch @bdomenech on @ThisWeekABC & think, "He seems reasonable and measured." Wow, was I wrong. Disappointing & disheartening to see his true colors. #SethMeyers #BenDomenech #MeghanMcCain https://t.co/3TRhoLdhMP

The LGBT community didn’t take kindly to his remark about Seth “gargling Lorne Michaels’ balls.”

There goes that selective outrage again.#SethMeyers

But a few conservative pundits backed him up.
Mostly everyone rejected Domenech’s lame apology, though.

Actually you’re a hack and your wife is a hack.
No one was offended because it is well known that you and your wife are hacks.
And in case you didn’t read this whole tweet, know that you and your wife are fucking hacks.
Thank you hack.

After his rant went viral, Domenech got roasted to a crisp on Twitter.
Hey, man. I understand. If someone gently asked my wife a question about what she said on TV at her well-paid job, I'd also have a man-child meltdown in the middle of the night

You got personal, used infantile language and homophobic over somebody for just doing their job. You are calling the guy a cuck, which is a name people use who routinely blame their misfortunes on others all the while saying he got his job for being white???

Does Ben work or just sponge off of Cindy McCain’s generational wealth #handouts

9/11 and the Israeli/Palestine conflict are two of the most controversial topics on Planet Earth.
We’ve all got different views on these complex issues, and that’s okay! But using derogatory slurs or homophobic language to make a political point isn’t the right way to approach differences of opinion.
