    Yes. Yes she is. Plus, she really doesn't listen to anyone.

    I hear you Tinkerbell. If I could like this a 1000 times I would. Congrats to your sons--well done!

    Telemachus2--I used the "funny" face to like your comment. I really wish there was a funny/sad face rolled into one--lately I'd be using that a lot. I really do like your "blinded by despair"--hope you don't mind if I use it!

    This also applies to MM. She never has anything to say re the very rich paying more.

    Not to go tit-for-tat, but this what I meant by my analogy. If you say Nickleback sucks, we can generally agree. If you say every song Nickleback ever put out was garbage, I then have to “defend” them by naming some of their songs that were good. Or go along with your absolute statement. Meghan has to “defend” Trump because the rest of the panel is one note. I don't agree that Meghan "has to defend Trump". This is still the United States of America - no one has to defend Trump. If what he is saying/doing is indefensible then you don't side with him. Just because the rest of the panel agrees on something does NOT make them "one note". It makes them of like minds on that issue. It's far too simplistic to say she has to defend him. No one has to do anything in this life--except die and pay taxes!

    I love Ana-"I have nothing to apologize for"---that's right Ana. Because you have compassion for those less fortunate than yourself you should apologize? I don't think so Abbey. Both she and MM are uncomfortable today because they are talking about people of wealth having no compassion for those less fortunate. MM saying the Devos's made their fortune through hard work--what a joke. They made their money selling snake oil to poor people who wanted to better their financial situation. MLM is a scam and so is Betsy. And why MM, is it admirable for someone of wealth to go into public service. They don't need the money. It's an ego thing in a lot of cases (not all). It's much more admirable for someone who does not come from means to go into public service. She was just patting her father on the back again. **But sometimes it's just a job.

    Less than five minutes in we have cacophony once again used incorrectly. Then we have a reference to the Wizard of OZ --"if you (democrats) want to get to the Emerald City you have to go through OZ". OZ IS the Emerald City. Geez. Why do I do this to myself?

    When we didn't hear from you on Friday I thought something might be wrong. I am so sorry for your dad. I hope he is on the mend and feeling better. I hope you and your mom are feeling better too! Tell your dad to Get well, and enjoy The View! (at least on TV for now)

    You are so right about this being quite brilliant. It is actually the first time I've heard anybody describe so accurately Pence's (and many, many other Republicans') religiosity. I liked Mayor Pete when he was on the last time, but this time I was absolutely blown away by how intelligent, honest and fair-minded he seems. Did I mention how intelligent he sounds?

    I think he was explaining how his religious faith/belief(s) influence his politics. No one is born with a political background, but they are, most likely, raised in some faith based environment. Therefore, that will influence how you view the function of politics and governing when you are an adult. Even people who are raised agnostic or atheist will be influenced by the way they are taught to act and view the world as they are growing up. The real issue of separating Church and State comes into play when laws are made based purely on religious beliefs/dogmas/rules and forcing all people to follow those same religious beliefs/dogmas. Pete was mainly describing living by the "Golden Rule" which is not owned by any one religion. I am completely against the influence of evangelical "religious" beliefs in our world today. I am in favor of the "Golden Rule". I think Mayor Pete is a breath of fresh air in our political world. I could however, live without knowing anyone is a "person of faith". I just need to know they are a "person of kindness".

    My son went to Yale. We are not poor, but we are middle class from suburban Chicago public schools. For the first 6 months or so he was there he was always afraid to open the emails from the university's president because he thought it would be to tell him they made a mistake in admitting him and he should pack up and leave. He got there through hard, hard work. We had no connections to help him get in. We worked hard to pay for it. He graduated with 2 degrees with honors. I could not be more disgusted with the people in this scandal.

    Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    So, if all that matters to you MM, is ratings, then you are exactly what is wrong with this world. Money is all you care about--not the truth, not treating people with kindness and empathy. I hate to say this, but I can think of no other words--you are a horrible person.

    Meghan has a lot of gall saying no one helped her get to where she is today in her "career". Seriously? That really got to me---She has absolutely no background in broadcast journalism or political science. If her name wasn't McCain and her mommy and daddy were not rich and powerful she would not be where she is today. How dare she cry that no one has helped her in her career. There are 1000's of college grads who do have the background and work history that could do whatever it is she does and do it a 1000 times better. How dare she.
