Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

Meghan, in the US many women cannot afford to take the up to 12 weeks of unpaid maternity leave that the Family and Medical Leave Act "entitles" them to.

Nor have months of parental bereavement leave. Meghan has no clue how privileged she is.

Right. At my job, you get one day if it's the loss of an immediate family member. You would have to use leave time for any other days you want off, and there are limits to it. You can't just say you're struggling and be gone for months on end. You'd probably find yourself out of a job. I've worked with widows who dealt with really bad depression. Imagine losing a soulmate while you're still young. They'd still get scolded if their productivity went down. Years ago I also worked with someone who lost his child due to a car accident. I don't know how he did it, but he managed to come back to work almost immediately and keep it together very well. He was just more quiet. 

I think Meghan having no idea how privileged she is probably affects her views on abortion too. Has Meghan ever had a good friend who got pregnant by a man who's not supportive, doesn't make much money herself, and doesn't have rich parents? (We all know she calls tons of people friends, and I'm sure some of them have had abortions. I'm referring to a true close friend who's not wealthy.) A friend of mine was recently in those circumstances. She's a Republican and a Christian who wants to be a mother, but she didn't feel like she could handle a baby right now. She's not much younger than Meghan, but like many Americans she still struggles supporting herself. She works two jobs and is in school. 

What I find interesting is Meghan is for paid family leave, but even saying how her perspective on healthcare changed once her father got sick, she sees being a parent as more of a right than she does being healthy.

Yesterday, Meghan tweeted, "Slow your roll, 2021! My God!"  The tweet she referenced is now unavailable.  Does anyone know what she was referencing?

Maybe she broke a nail.

Edit - okay, I see she broke more than that, but I knew it would somehow be her equating something that happened to her with the stuff that's affecting everybody.

First time I tuned in for a long while and MM is whining about Fauci and wanting more scientists who will tell her what she wants to hear.  Newsflash that was the last administration.  IMHO!

Maybe if she's going to badmouth him, she could at least spell his name correctly.  Her tweet refers to him as "Dr. Fauchi".  She also spelled "altar" incorrectly.  

Her tweet for anyone who's interested:

If you click anywhere in the body of the tweet, it will take you to the entire thread, with all the replies.  She's basically getting ripped for her "opinion".

Is Fauchi any relationship to Chachi? 

Meghan can say what she wants about Fauci. Just makes her look incredibly ignorant. Anthony Fauci doesn't walk on water but he is honest and doesn't appear to be guided by anything but his scientific knowledge and experience. He's not trying to be famous--just trying to do what he was trained to do.

Oh please Meghan, not a phony my ass. We know your opinion will always be to echo whatever your party is saying, unless it goes against MyFather of course. If Dr. Fauci were part of your tribe, we all know you'd worship him. Who do you want in charge of the messaging and leadership? Someone to ignore science, trivialize how serious the virus is, say fuck the masks and social distancing, let's gather in large crowds? Why is all that acceptable, but Dr. Fauci is not allowed to make mistakes? Despite his tremendous credentials, he is only human, not a god. No one is asking you to worship him, it's you playing politics as usual that grates. I get the hesitation with not scheduling a vaccine right away when life may not change just yet, but you lose me with the rest. You're entitled to your opinions, but don't expect those of us who see you for the partisan hack you are to respect them. The fact people like you rip him apart so much and whine about what he said about the masks a year ago is exactly why he hesitates sharing information now.

The only time Dr. Fauci wasn't completely transparent was when trump shut him up, didn't allow him to make public statements.  Fauci didn't want to disagree with trump publicly, because he would lose his job - and he wanted to keep working on Covid.   Meghan paints him as a hypocrite because he "said one thing privately and another on the air,"  when that was the trump administration who wasn't allowing him to speak candidly.

Meghan McCain Whines About Not Getting Her Vaccine, Internet Laughs

Meghan McCain would like to talk to the manager of the coronavirus vaccine rollout because she, an able-bodied wealthy white woman, cannot find out where to get a vaccine. Never mind that the supply is limited, we’re facing massive slowdowns because of weather crises, or the fact that the vaccine should be getting to the elderly, medically vulnerable, and front-line workers first. Oh, no, Miss McCain wants it now and anyone who’s keeping her from that needs to be fired.

This is a brief summation of McCain’s latest privileged polemic on today’s episode of The View. McCain’s rant came after playing a clip of Dr, Anthony Fauci, who McCain I guess wants to personally call her to make a vaccine appointment because she’s tired of being responsible. She’s personally offended by “the fact that Dr. Fauci is going on CNN and he can’t tell me that if I get the vaccine, if I’ll be able to have dinner with my family.”

I am guessing she behaves the way she does to get attention.  Mission accomplished I guess.

It's called sh@t stirring.  She says the incindiary thing specifically to evoke these kinds of responses. 

It's actually part of her victim complex. By deliberately drawing attack, she can then later go back and claim victimhood over "stating an opinion and being attacked over it". That HAPPENING is the whole purpose of her doing it in the first place.

So here's my weird little theory about Meghan McCain. Meghan is trying to gain the approval of Ben Shapiro. Not because of anything romantic/sexual, but because of what he represents: an "intellectual" Conservative who can project authority (by talking really fast) while "owning the libs." For a long time, Shapiro was contemptuous of McCain (as was now-husband Ben Domenech), but they've become friends as Meghan's views have shifted rightward. Today's Fauci tantrum echoed recent Ben Shapiro tweets and Meghan is finding out the hard way that incoherently repeating those ideas to a larger audience is not going to go over well. She'll either pretend the criticism doesn't bother her or act as if she's a First Amendment martyr.

Meghan's totally reminded me of Ben Shapiro lately with her speed talking! Larry Elder is another person who does this. I haven't noticed any liberals doing it. As someone who naturally talks a little fast myself and sometimes wish people would just spit out what they want to say without lots of pauses, uh's and um's, I even think they need to slow the heck down sometimes. When I watch The View I think, girl BREATHE! The worst thing that can happen is Whoopi Goldberg saying it's time to go to break, not saying you in danger, girl! 😉 Ben's the kind of guy who seems super smart to someone who's not political. I'm not saying he's stupid. I just think he's that nerdy kid who was book smart and a hard worker and quick on his feet, but by no means does that make him this genius who's on right everything, quite the contrary. I agree his confidence and debate skills fool people into thinking he always knows what he's talking about. Even though he's by no means my favorite political commentator, if there were to be a Meghan and Ben Shapiro debate, my money would be on Ben to win and put up a video where he "destroys" Meghan McCain.

Sad to say this is exactly the same story as Elizabeth Hasselbeck a former View host. She came to the view as a Survivor contestant which was not the kind of experience needed to be the first "conservative voice" on The View but she was hired anyway.

She was so exteme and battled for her team all the time like Nutmeg. Entitled, ignorant and arrogant she drew viewers not to view her intellectual debates with the rest of the panel but to see her grizzly bear like fights. Eventually it ended with her getting canned.

The View seems to have very few game plans to draw viewers but when you have a tired and mostly disinterested host like Whoopie, you need to draw vieweres anyway you can. The joke is really on her, and I am pleased that she is too ignorant like Hasselbeck to realize that they only have her on the show for the fights and sh@t stirring because she has no other skills related to hosting a morning talk show. Eventually the fighting and sh@t stirring will get old and she will be replaced. The last laugh will be on her and everyone will be laughing at her and not with her.

As I expected as soon as Meghan started her rant, she is being fileted in media.  Everyone is focused on I, MEGHAN MCCAIN but I haven't seen anyone include the reason for her wanting to get the shot immediately, that she wants to go out drinking with her friends.  This sense of privilege really should get her fired.  I wonder if she'll take a "sick day" today.

Yes. She is really making a name for herself. And it's not a good name. It seems like she is positioning herself as someone you love to hate.  She has been watching too many Real Housewife shows.  Her obnoxious narcissistic behavior isn't going to open doors for her. She will never have as big an audience once she is no longer on the View.  Look at where Elisabeth Hasselbeck is now.  

And I have noticed she will occasionally mention Liberty on her social media and did an interview with pictures with People magazine but never mentions the baby on the View. Guess on the View she only wants to be seen as a professional political pundit.  Even though her hairstyles and makeup suggest otherwise.

And sorry, but that dude, Jake? was wrong. We do still need to mask up and social distance even after getting the vaccine. You have to give it time to...build up whatever (I'm no scientist or doctor, so blanking on the name) so we're protected. And really until herd immunity is reached and the pandemic dies the DEATH it deserves.
