Gwyneth Paltrow riles up Sen. John McCain’s wife over military comparison

Cindy McCain, wife of former POW Senator John McCain took to Twitter to call out pretentious actress Gwyneth Paltrow. Paltrow once again stuck her foot in her mouth revealing her entitled and out-of-touch comments. In her Twitter attack, Cindy McCain called Paltrow “a joke.”

Paltrow, 41, appeared at RE/Code’s Code Conference in Los Angeles which is a technology convention. While there, Paltrow complained about the “dehumanizing” scrutiny those that are rich and famous get from the media and social media sites. Paltrow said, “It’s almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanizing thing, and then something is defined out of it.”

McCain jumped on Twitter and responded to Paltrow’s comments by writing, “Her life is like taking bullets for a soldier. What a joke! My 2 sons serving in the military should talk to her. Perhaps Gwyneth Paltrow should go out on patrol with some soldiers. Kind of like a Red Carpet in her mind I guess!”

This is the second time this year that Paltrow had offended a group of people. Earlier this year, she upset working mothers by claiming their lives are easier than hers when she’s filming. She said, “I think it’s different when you have an office job, because it’s routine and, you know, you can do all the stuff in the morning and then you come home in the evening.”

“I thing to have a regular job and be a mom is not as hard, of course there are challenges, but it’s not like being on set.”

When Ms. Paltrow is finishing going on patrol with soldiers, maybe she should spent one week in a working mother’s shoes. I’d love to see how much easier it is to get kids up, dressed, and fed while getting herself dressed. Go to work, some home, handle kids, homework, dinner, baths etc all week. Then spend her weekends doing everything that didn’t get done during the week all without the aid of a nanny, maid, assistant, chauffer, etc.
