Meghan McCain’s new memoir ‘Bad Republican’ is HUGE flop, number sold is embarrassingly low

Proving again how out of touch Washington elites are with the general American public, another new book has been released to dismal sales despite the celebrity status of its author.

Since its release on April 26, Meghan McCain’s book, “Bad Republican: A Memoir,” has reportedly sold fewer than 300 copies, according to the Washington Examiner which noted that an NPD BookScan revealed that “it sold just 244 copies in the first few days.”

The flop comes on the heels of a report that the biography of Jill Biden by two Associated Press reporters, “Jill: A Biography of the First Lady,” garnered sales of only 250 copies in the first week of its release.

“A book agent said the low sales were a surprise considering the celebrity status of the former View star and outspoken daughter of former Sen. John McCain,” Washington Examiner reported.

McCain’s book, available at major retailers like Random House, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Target, and Walmart, sells for $26.39 on Amazon.

According to the listing on Amazon:

With the aptly titled Bad Republican, Meghan McCain expresses how it is to feel like you no longer fit in with your political party.

She tells of growing up the daughter of an American icon who shaped her life and details the heartbreaking final moments spent by his side. She recalls her (mis)adventures on the New York dating scene and brings us up to speed on meeting her now-husband. We hear her views on cancel culture and internet trolls as well as life backstage as the sole Republican at America’s most-watched daytime talk show—and why she decided to leave.


McCain also reveals “where she thinks the Republican Party and the country go from here,” in what Amazon calls an “Unsparingly honest, deeply relatable, and highly entertaining” book.

One review on the Amazon listing, which gave the book one star, noted that it was more a book about “a whiny little girl who complained about LIFE everything in life that EVERYONE has to deal with and most do it without feeling sorry for themselves.”

Another one-star review lamented that the “writing style is just revolting, and it’s so self-congratulatory that it’s likely unreadable for anyone other than the author.”

“I wanted to give it a try since I had so much respect for her father, not his policies but his character. What I learned is her biggest accomplishment is being his daughter and she thinks the world revolves around her,” wrote another. “She’s a victim and blames everyone else but never takes accountability for how her behavior, often that of a mean girl, contribute to a ‘toxic’ environment. She sounds like a whiny valley girl who has a simple view of the world and events around her.”

Even though there were plenty of good reviews, even one person who gave the book five stars wrote: “This book is slanted, anger, poor me. O my goodness! THICK with every page, poor me. In a narcisstic lens of how everyone was treating me. How she got ‘revenge’ or her words vindicated. Crazy. “
