Hello! Did you wake up this morning, open Twitter, and immediately wonder, โ€œUh, why is everyone here tweeting about some lady named Denise and how she came to their wedding?โ€ Then this is the post for you. Welcome.

It all started Monday night when Denise McAllister, a conservative writer and commentator, tweeted some harsh words about The View.

Twitter / Via Twitter: @McAllisterDen

โ€œCan someone explain to me the purpose of The View?โ€ McAllister said. โ€œIt seems to me to be a roundtable of delusional mental midgets ricocheting ignorance and lack of emotional regulation.โ€

Linked was an article, titled โ€œMeghan McCain Says Sheโ€™s Having โ€˜Existential Crisisโ€™; Admits Media Will โ€˜Get Trump Re-Elected.โ€™โ€

Then, Meghan McCain (who cohosts The View) stepped in with this:

Twitter / Via Twitter: @MeghanMcCain


McCainโ€™s comment โ€” apparently loaded with shock and deeply felt hurt โ€” was exceptionally funny to many people. I mean, look at it! Itโ€™s perfect!

this is seriously the funniest fuckin shit i've seen in a while oh my g

Now everyone is saying theyโ€™re going to adopt it as their new catchall comeback.

@lexlanham @evanrosskatz Gonna start saying โ€œyou were at my wedding deniseโ€ to everyone who has ever wronged me

brb replying to even the mildest criticism with โ€œyou were at my wedding Deniseโ€

And itโ€™s spawned some really good memes.

Julius Caesar, while being stabbed in the back: you were at my wedding Denise...

You were at my wedding Denise.

FWIW, McAllister backpedaled hard saying the tweet was not directed at McCain, but instead โ€œat The View and the mental midgets who surround you.โ€

โ€œI donโ€™t even know how you do it daily and my hat is off to you for standing strong in the midst of crazy,โ€ McAllister said.


But whatever happened here, at least it gave us a new meme.

was kind of feeling down about this week and then i saw "you were at my wedding denise" and now i feel revitalized
