She’s also getting a lot of negative attention from “conservatives” (I use that term in quotes because they are more “Trumpian” than “John McCain” conservative and unlike Fox News, I’d rather not treat the words “liberal” and “conservative” as scary words). The person who threatened her on Twitter, was posting from a MAGA account. Shes’s also getting pushback from verified “conservative” voices on Twitter. Now that she is becoming a target on social media, in addition to the flag drama, I also wonder if her attitude toward Trump/people who still approve of Trump will change.
I imagine she’ll still have her disdain toward “liberals,” but after this can she still keep explaining the MAGA phenomenon? Maybe she can explain it, but can she still keep asking the audience to try to empathize with this sort of normalized indecency? I still feel she was partly playing a role on The View, as her behavior this year was drastically different than the pre-Fox News Meghan, so if she is playing this role, is it one she can keep playing?
Anyway, I thought she did a good job today and I respect the McCain family for using a difficult moment like this to demonstrate to the country what decency looks like again.
