    Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    While talking to TG , MM again brought up K. Harris "attacking" Biden. REALLY? WHY? IMO it was not an attack. I also noticed when anyone brings up the orange guy's racist/misogynous attacks, tweets, or chants; MM pivots to AOC, et al being the face of the Democratic party. I think that is what the orange guy and his cohorts are trying to do - to "scare" their base about people who do not look like them.

    Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    I really don't know how I feel about her revealing her pregnancy and subsequent miscarriage. 😕 What I found curious was her claim that women who have had miscarriages have been made to feel ashamed/guilty about it. Several of my friends have had miscarriages and I can't think of anyone who was shamed about it. Some were further along and the pain that they suffered I can't ever understand. A few had them in the first few weeks and were surprised and a bit sad but did not carry on as MM did. Also for all of them it was just a private matter. They would share with others who had suffered the same experience. When one of my friends at work had one, other women in the office shared their own pain with her (privately) and how they coped. That made her feel not so alone. Plus - it means that she was pregnant when the panel discussed women's health care, job equality, children separated for their parents, education, sexual harassment. So even being pregnant, she could not empathize with "regular" women. I hate to say it but MM takes things that happen in her life/to her to a dramatic extreme. Nothing is as awful as it was for her, nothing is as hurtful as it was to her, nothing is as sad as it was to her, nothing is as bad as it was to her, no one suffered as much as her. If she really is suffering about this - I feel bad for her. BUT I think that this extreme reaction is just dramatic effect.

    ETA: Just noticed I added a word! I meant to say that "K. Harris was not attacking J. Biden." OOPS! I really need to reread before posting!

    I don't think that K. Harris was not attacking J. Biden. She asked about something he did as a senator - it was not name calling, making fun, bullying - it was a question about what he did and what does he think about his decision now.

    "The View": Week of 7/8/2019

    Just a few thoughts about today's show - Although others have mentioned this, I'll be honest I barely noticed until today: Sunny is realllly (!) not even glancing at MM. I'm sorry, this is so petty of me but I thought it was funny. MM coming out and saying that Whoopie's thought about evangelicals was political - What? Whoopie clearly stating that it was a thought in HER head, it was HER question not a _state your partisan label here_ view. MM continuing trying to say it was political. Whoopie's point to me was clear. Evangelicals seemed to have something about the football players kneeling, gay marriage, transgender, illegal immigrants, justifying the orange guy's complete lack of Christian values as having values of any kind. Why aren't they vocal about the total disregard for the poor, the weak, the ones' without a voice (the children in the camps, the families separated, children being trafficked) when that is who JESUS says/said we should protect, help, defend. MM saying her in-laws are evangelicals and are nice people. Whoopie and Joy saying that they (her in-laws) are not prominent leaders/talking heads with a platform. MM appeared to be left speechless. Whoopie seeming to lay into Sunny about losing. Sunny's point being that losing at things that are important to you can make you stronger. Whoopie's examples of Sunny losing were silly games (well, maybe not Jeopardy, 😑 I would take that seriously too!). MM's belt popped off! Hee, hee, hee! Totally off topic: I wonder if tomorrow they will talk about Acosta's press conference and how he spoke in Spanish? Since hearing a different language is apparently offensive to someone's ears.

    Joy Behar: "So Whaat? Who Caaaares?"

    How did I miss this tread devoted to JOY! I absolutely LOVE her!! Even when I disagree with her, I still love her!! When she was fired fro the show back in the day, I stopped watching. I only began again because of her. It is disgraceful that MM is so angry, disrespectful, dismissive, mumbles under her breath about her, and calls her names! If MM had a real job she would have been transferred/demoted to another department or fired by now. I love Joy's quick wit/responses especially when what she says goes over the twit's head.

    MM really doesn't listen to anyone does she? Julian C. said that to decriminalize but people entering illegally would still be processed through the laws on the books, which could lead to deportation. And how does MM respond "OPEN BORDERS!!!" The only part she heard was when he said that "right-wing" people. *Spanglish is not about an accent when speaking English. It's using both languages within the same sentence when speaking or even making an English word sound like a Spanish word or vice a versa. Example: Esperame and then we can go. Estabamos hablando when he came. That's what we call Spanglish where I'm from (California). ETA: I meant an accent when speaking Spanish.

    I just couldn't believe what came out of MM's mouth regarding the children(!) who are being held in detention camps. They have no beds, aren't allowed the simple dignity of being clean (murderers in prison get more), have to care for each other because there aren't any adults to do it, can't speak the language, are separated from their families, don't know when they will be moved, are at risk of abuse, no answers to any of their questions. That's not torture?? I think it is - you don't know where you will be, you don't know what is allowed, you don't know who will be kind or not ( a technique used in interrogations), you don't know if your friend will be there tomorrow, constantly on edge about your future. I work with children and all I can see are the faces of my students. What would I do to help them? I see the faces of my nieces and nephews - how could I get them back? And yes, I see myself in their eyes. It sickens me that this entitled, rich white woman can't see beyond the color of her skin, the viewpoint of her party, the defense of the indefensible. It seems to me that she refuses to see them as they really are - small human beings without any power. I just can't with her anymore. Then, then to bring her father into it!! It's not the same thing!! He was an adult, he was in a war.

    Oh, my goodness! MM - get over yourself!! When she began talking about telling her "honest" opinion about the rape accusation. How her opinion was unpopular but she was not going to lie because she had been lied to her whole life and as a daughter of a politician she had heard lies. She knew that the audience would hate her opinion! She went on with this until she basically said that an investigation should be opened and she didn't know how she felt about this accusation. WHAT?? She glanced at the audience waiting for a reaction - NO AUDIENCE REACTION! MM must have been so disappointed! I agree with others that Pete B. meant that he was there as mayor not a presidential candidate. OT: I really thought that they were going to talk about how the orange guy's administration is arguing against children receiving soap, showers, and toothpaste.

    Yes - I meant to add that Joy's question was not confrontational nor angry nor LOUD. It was a follow up question to MM's claim that orange guy's supporters dislike/hate what the orange guy dislikes/hate. Her question was just a calm - What does the orange guy hate? THEN MM went off the rails! Her reaction was just so over the top to what Joy asked. And I think the answer MM was trying not to face was exactly what you said, Tinkerbell.

    I am not sure how I feel about today's show. I thought Howie Mandell was a good distraction and funny too. I wondered why that boy's acceptance from Harvard was newsworthy. It happens. Plus since it is consistent to what they have done in the past plus it is a private university. If this was just a one off, then yes talk about how they are discriminating against a gun-toting, somewhat racists person, but it's not. So - move on. I was really surprised by MM's reaction to Joy. MM said that it's not that the orange guy's supporters necessarily like him. They dislike/hate the same things that the orange guy does.

    The other day MM made a very convoluted point and the audience clapped for her. She said in her screechy voice something like - Oh people are clapping for me! That's the first time it's happened. (Not true - my opinion) The audience never claps for me, that's a nice change - or something like that. She actually has said similar things in the past. Today she actually said something that made sense and in a reasonable tone, the audience clapped for her. Why didn't she thank them? (Being sarcastic)

    I liked that they actually stayed on topic and had time to articulate their ideas/opinions without someone hijacking the conversation and changing the subject. You're right it was refreshing because they were talking about what was going on, not a democrat vs. republican thing. It was a really hot topics not "Let's talk about how great I am to the LGBT community and my FATHER and I'm the only voice of the republican party and I'm a conservative and I shoot guns and I'm a badass".

    S17.E12: The Art of Fashion

    This is my girl: A teacher with almost 30 years in education. Her body is pear-shaped but pretty well-endowed (father's side of the family). Usually wears comfortable clothes that let her sit on the rug cross-legged with her 24 second graders. (The rug that is sat upon is not the cleanest thing!) Also clothes can be worn for P.E. to do warm-up exercises, skill teaching (like throwing, hopping, skipping, etc.) and cool down. It should be easy to wear, not need ironing, and always comfortable to wear. Sometimes has to do presentations for parents and/or colleagues in the cafeteria. An evening out: professionally - a PTA dinner, a retirement dinner, a union dinner; personally - a night out at the movies, dinner with friends, a formal dinner like a wedding. NO HEELS!! Don't they know how bad they are for your feet and leg muscles?

    I really enjoyed the show today!!! It was interesting to hear everyone finish what they wanted to say. And even though I didn't agree with Tara about guns. She made a good point about restraining orders for guns. Where a gun is taken away for a short period (like time-out for kinders). I agree with Sunny about the Church. A few priests are friends of mine and they approach the faith with openness to all, support, love, and try very hard not to be judgmental (as we all must try to do). Like she did, I struggled with my faith when the child abuse came out. It was a good show even thought I did miss Joy.
