Meghan McCain is attacking President Joe Biden with the sword of religion and the Internet is not having it. Having once presented herself as a moderate, McCain has increasingly moved to the far right, but her latest diatribe may be her most extreme yet.

"I believe that he is doing gave spiritual harm to himself and harm to this country," McCain said of President Biden, over his support of a woman's right to choose abortion.

McCain decided to side with the majority of U.S. Catholic Bishops, who themselves are violating a Vatican directive to not "weaponize" of politicize the most sacred rituals of the Roman Catholic Church.

"He's going to have to ultimately talk to his creator when the time comes as we all do," she added, "and reconcile his politics with his personal faith."

Biden, who is 78, is a devout and practicing Catholic who attends church at least weekly. McCain is 36. Her spouse is Ben Domenech, co-founder and publisher of far right wing website The Federalist.

Many online were furious with McCain, who just four years ago said, "I love this Pope," referring to Pope Francis, adding she had just read an article promoting the idea the the GOP should follow the Pope and "live in the real world."

The Pope, or his officials, told U.S. Bishops to not go down the road they are going, trying to withhold communion from Biden and other Catholic lawmakers over their support of abortion.
