Meghan McCain Calls Joe the Plumber a ‘Dumb Ass;’ MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer Agrees

On Thursday, MSNBC anchor Contessa Brewer reported on Meghan McCain calling Joe the Plumber a “dumb ass” for his views on homosexuality and remarked: “Is that name calling? Or, you know, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck and looks like a duck. Just asking, folks. I'm just asking.” In the brief report, during the 2:00PM ET hour, Brewer explained:

Let's go to the war of words between Meghan McCain and the man known as Joe the Plumber. In a recent interview, the daughter of the former GOP presidential contender railed against her dad's big supporter here. And she was talking about her support for gay marriage, she criticized Samuel Wurzelbacher, that's his real name, his comments about homosexuals. She said - this is - okay, these are her words, I'm going to quote them, 'Joe the Plumber, you can quote me, is a dumb ass, he should stick to plumbing.' Is that name calling? Or, you know, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck and looks like a duck. Just asking, folks. I'm just asking.
