Meghan McCain disagrees with Elon Musk and Nick Cannon’s mission to make babies.

McCain called a recent conversation between Musk and Cannon “the scariest tweet thread in the history of the tag team” in a Daily Mail op-ed.

“This ‘soak up the planet’ mentality is chilling and more like the actions of a cult leader than a selfless person who wants to expand their family and save the planet,” McCain wrote for the outlet. “Elon is the richest man on the planet, he can certainly do what he wants, when he wants, however he wants, but don’t think for a minute that ordinary Americans relate to that.”

She noted that while Musk “may have the resources” to support a large family, most Americans don’t.

Meghan McCain has criticized Elon Musk and Nick Cannon’s views on large families in a Daily Mail op-ed.


The TV personality also claimed there was a “shame factor” in Musk’s reasoning.

“That if we don’t all have as many children as our bodies are capable of, we are not tackling an existential crisis of population decline,” she wrote. “It all seems very impersonal, fatalistic and dystopian.”

“Either we act like emotionless rabbits and repopulate the planet, or we face terrible peril.”

McCain’s op-ed was in response to a Twitter exchange between the Tesla CEO and Cannon.

“Doing my best to help the underpopulation crisis,” Musk wrote on Twitter. “A collapsing birth rate is by far the greatest danger facing civilization.”

“Notice my words, they are sadly true,” Musk added.

Cannon responded to the tweet, saying, “Right there with you bro!”

The radio show host is a father of seven, and baby number eight is on the way.

Cannon was supposed to practice celibacy at the behest of his therapist but “didn’t even manage to [January].”

“I was supposed to hit the top of the year,” he told podcast hosts Yee and Gigi Maguire.

“So obviously I started going through some things. I was depressed by the loss of my son. So in December everyone saw that I was so depressed. So everyone said, ‘Let’s just give her a little vagina, and that’s gonna cure everything.’”

Cannon shares twins with his ex-wife Mariah Carey. He also shares two children with Brittany Bell. Cannon has another set of twins with Abby De La Rosa. Model Alyssa Scott gave birth to Cannon’s son, Zen, who died in December after being diagnosed with brain cancer.

Cannon is now expecting another child with Bri Tiesi and another, apparently, with Abby De La Rosa.
