Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

I'll be interested to see Joy's reaction to Meggie's comments about their "relationship".  (The girl is delusional!!!)

Very delusional, talking about how much she and Joy are alike, even outside of politics. She talked about how Joy enjoys drinking like she does but I could've sworn Joy herself said she isn't much of a drinker.

Yes! Forgot to add this. She talked about how in NY she is inundated (the exact word she used) with how all Republicans are all racists and the like. 

Also, Van Jones did a lot of ass kissing, of course.

Ahhhh...bummer.  I commented to my son that she wasn't using her View SCREECH, so she sounded better.

She talked so quickly that the closed-captioning person couldn't keep up with her.  I hope this was an audition.  She and S.E. can have their own "girls" show...only if she's not allowed on The View.

Well she’s already saying she wishes the people she worked with on the show could see things from her POV, which is insane, because they do every day. She talked about how she’s not a “never Trumper,” but she sees things from the other side’s POV as well. She also said something to the affect of, “well if The View doesn’t like me, they can replace me,” and joked that she’s still employed, “for now.” She talked about really liking Kamala Harris when she came on the show, not being a fan of identity politics, makes it clear she’s not a liberal, how much her and Joy are alike outside of politics, drinking, her grief... the usual stuff.

Meghan is conflating. I'm sure Joy enjoys a drink but by her own admission on the show, she's a lightweight. When they discussed the lunch date they had, she said she had one cosmopolitan while Sunny and Meghan were throwing drinks back and she said that she can't drink like that and she wouldn't even try to keep up with them because she'd probably end up in some Russian hotel room. It's likely a more fair assumption to say that Joy will enjoy a drink or two but she probably enjoys drinks that she can nurse for a period of time and not have to throw back and go onto the next one.

So no, they don't seem like they're similar when it comes to drinking, or similar when it comes to their sense of humour. They don't have a similar upbringing and they don't seem to have a similar lifestyle. Their personalities are quite different. Maybe they have the same favourite colour, lol.

She also mentioned they liked to play cards.  I doubt that's true, given that Joy said she was a lousy poker player, so Meggie is just pulling stuff out of her ass, as usual.

Abt this cactus thang....I have several good reasons to have them.

1.  Super slow maintenance.  A big watering once a month, but sprinkle on it every once in a while.  Do NOT use that verbatim, it is wrong.  I just wanted to show the example.

2.  Just need to chat it now and then, no petting allowed.  I save that for my Cat hah

3.  No talk back from kids or social media

4.  Showtalker to break the ice and start talking 

Course I cant think now.  Guess I can add later

From the article.

McCain has been a regular, more moderate voice for the Republican Party since joining ABC’s ‘The View’ as a co-host in 2017.

Moderate?

I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why ABC keeps having her on their morning news show to talk about politics, surrounded by people who actually know about politics. I've noticed she's much more restrained though - no screeching, no eye-rolling, ect. But she doesn't add much to the discussion.

I think " not adding much to the discussion" will be the reason for her failure at (pretending) to be a real pundint.

MM just doesn't have the chops (intelligence,  wit, insight) to be kept aboard political shows when there are so many others who are better.  

I really believe that the show's are putting her on to be kind to her, as the daughter of JMcC. 

This "kindness" will gradually fade away in time, as will MM, try as she might to stay relevant.

Found this from a couple years ago.  It has this from a Glamour 2013 article.

 

Since McCain has chosen to keep her relationship out of the tabloids and away from the mainstream media, her name has circulated around the gay rumor mill over the years. It seems as though her not having a boyfriend — or wanting one — made some people question her sexuality. When you couple that with her being friends with Rachel Maddow and Tila Tequila (and you take it one step further and pay too much attention to McCain saying that she hangs out at gay bars), you don’t have to wait long for the lesbian chatter to begin.

When was Meghan friends with Rachel Maddow?

Meghan FRIENDS with Rachel Maddow?  

You know how Meghan calls anyone she has ever met a "very close friend?"  well, maybe because she has been interviewed by Rachel, she thinks they are friends?

Note to Meghan:  Rachel Maddow is a political analyst.  she interviews people, and comments on politics.  She is generally respectful to those she interviews, does not believe it to be her job to "filet" or "eviscerate" them, just to understand them, challenge them, and have a dialogue.   If you want to ever be worthy of that label you give yourself, "political analyst,"  study Rachel Maddow!

Since she first interviewed her in 2009, back when I actually liked Meghan (please don't hurt me for admitting that).

Also, this appearance led to Laura Ingraham giving her crap about her weight, which Meghan responded to on this very show soon after (she specifically quoted Tyra Banks' very famous "Kiss my fat ass!" line, which Tyra had used on her talk show).

(I have to admit, I'm always uncomfortable when I hear the jokes about her weight here; I've struggled with weight issues myself since I was a teenager, and I don't like making fun of other people, especially women, about their weight. I'll admit I've sometimes thought of myself as an ugly fat cow; I've stopped that and I know I'm not, but I don't feel right saying that about someone else either, such as Meghan. There's other stuff to focus on here. I know her personality contributes to the jokes, but still...I can't do it; I wouldn't want anyone to do that to me, and I probably still weigh less/have a body type that can carry extra weight better than she does. Still, I'll be happy when I lose more than the 10 or so pounds I've lost this past year. Sigh.)

Crap. I can't find the clip. I'll post it here later if I do come across it, though.

The special treatment of Meghan reminds me of how Luke Russert was treated after his dad, venerated Meet The Press moderator Tim Russert, passed away several years ago.  Luke was suddenly thrust into any news slot TPTB could find for him, although IMO, he was a lightweight (though pleasant) political analyst.  I think he may have even had a cable show for a short time.  Haven’t seen or heard of him lately so I don’t know what he’s up to now.  I just remember thinking there was nothing special about him, and he was just getting opportunities because of who his father was.  Same as Meghan.

I really don't think Cindy was mad.  I think she got the joke and was playing on it. MM I think was also playing off it, smirking along.  But one never knows with her.  I did like her hair yesterday.

It seems like they are talking about late term abortions due to the fetus having such physical problems it wouldn't survive long after birth.  And if labor starts before the abortion and the baby is delivered what happens after that.  I  haven't researched this particular story but I'm pretty sure they are talking about whether to perform life sustaining procedures or let the baby die.

That is all part of her being an entitled privileged holier than thou bitch.  I have no doubt if she hadn't been born into a wealthy family and she found herself with an unwanted pregnancy she would consider her options.  It's easy to say you would never do something without ever having been faced with that something.  At her core she is selfish and uncaring.

The people going nuts over the NY abortion issue on my facebook are religious and Trump supporters. Has Meghan ever mentioned God on the show?  They need to learn to read the fine print. I've heard of women pregnant with babies without brains; it's an awful situation to be in without these nuts raving over something they know nothing about.

If I'm not mistaken, on the show she hasn't explicitly explained her pro-choice decision as being anything to do with religion (unlike Sunny). I'm pretty positive in one segment she said abortion is unconstitutional and murder because it denies a baby 'life', liberty and freedom. Though it's just my personal theory that she says that so that people can't make the 'separation of church and state' rebuttal but I don't think Meghan's opinion on abortion would change even if we were talking about a country that didn't have a constitution that promises life, liberty or freedom to its people.

John McCain was raised Episcopalian and it seems he practiced that religion in his early life.  He and Cindy joined North Phoenix Baptist church...a megachurch not far from their North Central (that's the street) home in Phoenix.  Many prominent people (politicians, professional athletes, etc.) attend the church.  I think Meghan once said she had attended a Baptist church but her in-laws are Evangelicals.  She attended a Catholic prep school for girls in Phoenix...but many wealthy people send their non-Catholic daughters there...to Xavier.

Sadly, I have first hand knowledge about this subject.  My sister gave birth in the late 70s to a baby who was born without a brain.  She was hydrocephalic and only had a brain stem to allow primitive breathing function.  She lived in NICU all of her brief life (close to 3 months), connected to a breathing apparatus, feeding and other tubes.  This was in the days when ultrasounds were very rudimentary.  The doctors had no idea that the pregnancy was in trouble until she went into labor and they eventually had to perform a C-section because the baby's head was enlarged due to excessive fluid and she couldn't come through the birth canal.

It's been over forty years, and I still remember the pain and suffering that my sister, her boyfriend, and my immediate family went through every day knowing that the baby could not survive long term.  One or more of us was at the hospital every day to be by her side.  My sister had to work and would work long shifts at a restaurant, and then take a late bus to the hospital to hold the baby and stay with her overnight.   

It would have been a godsend if my sister had had a choice about what to do in the situation.  Maybe she would have chosen the same road, but how dare anyone rant and rave about something so painful and gut-wrenching to a family.

Thank you for sharing your heartbreaking story and I am sorry for your loss. I wish that people like Megan would speak to people like you and get a different perspective. They just spew hateful rhetoric and never take into account that this complex issue is very sensitive and should be treated with respect and understanding.

It shouldn't get as far as Whoopi. The producer(s) or whoever shouldn't allow any host to spew propaganda about a serious and very dangerous subject, especially when the propaganda is so easily documented as distortions and lies. They're proud of their ratings but are using that opportunity to inflame the social fabric? Yay, show! If Birtherism was still a thing would that be OK and could you/should you screech it? Eh, why not, evidently. I don't post on FB very much but I vet every single thing I post because I don't want to be responsible for steering any of my 64 friends wrong. I don't think it's asking too much to expect the same thing from this bunch because national fucking audience. The hosts are entitled to their own opinions but they're not entitled to their own facts.

Because Trump was educating the public about aborting babies at 9 months you are right I see arguments on it on FB quite often.   If I’m not mistaken sonograms reveal most catastrophic issues early on as well as blood testing.   

She was extra chirpy and laughing under her breath as well as screaming at the audience. What did she scream how she can swim when shit foes down because of trump?  Loved Joy saying you’re not a nuclear scientist or something similar. That’s a understatement.
