Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

Recommended Posts

So, MM wasn't on Friday because Amy Poehler----Seth Myers good friend----was there,  right? 

Probably. 

What a chickenshit!

(As my late father would say.)

I think we need to change the title of this portion of the View regarding MM, to Chickenshit Mehgun.

I think there are core values that anyone in my circle MUST possess.  Color, shape, size, sexual orientation, place of origin - non negotiable - people are people.  Are some people assholes?  Sure, but it has nothing to do with the list.

In 2009 Ben Shapiro (her current fan/apologist) said...

https://www.creators.com/read/ben-shapiro/10/09/meghan-mccains-big-bust

He's kind of not wrong, which upsets me, because he is a moron, so I really don't want to agree with him. 🙃

Something is off though, this article is from 2009, which makes sense except for the paragraph about parlaying her fame to a role on the View.  Is the article updated?  And if so, why would he do that, he has been a NutMeg supporter for some time now I believe?

I think The View reference was to Meghan getting some guest spots/appearances on the panel after her dust up with Laura Ingram. Shapiro is now a fan of hers because they often have the same speaking points. To acknowledge and put value on Meghan's opinion is to help substantiate his own opinions - which is typical - we tend to pull examples of things that support our own positions but given the things he's said about her in the past - it seems like it started with a 'an enemy of my enemy is a friend' type of mentality.

As a gay man I'm really torn on this. MM (and Abby) have been very vocal of their support of gay rights/marriage for which I applaud them.  And I disagree with others who question how she can be an ally when those she supports are not.  If I could only be allies with those that supported everything I supported, I would have few allies.  I believe that every person who supports LGBT rights is an ally of mine despite their thoughts on other issues.

I guess, for me, her support of LGBT comes across as fake as everything else about her, and a cheap attempt to make people like her. Nevertheless, even if she supported one group's rights (even if it's the one I happen to belong to), I still couldn't like her while she screams against and aids in the assault on the rights of so many others. The controversial Seth Meyers interview itself happened because of her Islamophobia-laced mischaracterization of and obsession with Ilhan Omar.

She's also on Twitter retweeting his "gotcha" moments to people calling him out, so I'd say there's not been much of a contretemps between them based on the other tweets. To be honest, she's probably that girl who made gay friends in college, then married a douche and spends all her time trying to get her gay friends to see how "funny" and "just joking" the husband is when he makes snide remarks in front of them.

Her twitter is so lacking in self-awareness, it's hilarious. She retweeted a William F. Buckley quote about the media being whittled down to soundbites which results in the removal of all complexity and context. Girl, you are so part of that problem!

In other news, Eli Valley, the Jewish cartoonist who recently lampooned Meghan (to which she responded that the cartoon was "one of the most anti-semitic things [she's] ever seen") has drawn another cartoon. Check out her mug. Also, Sunny's nose-job!

I love that her mug says "I. Am. A. Daughter!"

As silly as this is, I like to pretend that it's the same woman each time--that some poor ABC intern has the job of Pretending to Agree with Meghan for the day using different disguises. 

I hope (but doubt) this experience will cause Meghan to think carefully about what she wants from her career  besides fame. To me, it seems as if she is constantly trying to sit at the cool kids' table (Millennial Republican, First Daughter Runner-up, Super Patriot, etc.) without actually committing to doing the work. As a political commentator, your only research can't be Twitter feeds and headlines. You should actually read things.

Meghan McCain, John McCain's daughter, is the very definition of toxic femininity

Quote

"While McCain is very good at criticizing others, she is not so good at listening to criticism. Should you so much as insinuate that she isn’t god’s gift to the Earth, the talkshow host and professional “daughter of a famous man”, immediately turns herself into a victim. Performances like the one on Tuesday are not a one-off: she is constantly flying into a rage or bursting into tears. Constantly turning herself into a damsel in distress in order to shut down other women and avoid accountability. She is a prime example of what writer Luvvie Ajayi has described as the “weary weaponising of white women’s tears”. If toxic femininity exists, then there is no better example of it than Meghan McCain."

Are people still dragging her online? She is truly hated on there and what is so cool, nobody on the right cares enough about her to say something in her defense other than that odious Shapiro.  As Evelyne Lozada from Baskettball wives would say, Nutmeg is a non motherfuckin factor. Excuse my language since she is such a fan of the Housewives, I am sure she would appreciate Evelyne's quip.

Given the fact that Cindy McCain raised at least one of her children to exhibit a complete lack of manners, class, grace, and compassion every chance she gets, I'm side eyeing that comment with the strength of a Sunny side eye.

Same with Ben Shapiro--maybe 2009.  I had no idea who he was until today (poor thing).

Looks like Meghan's "publicist" will be working A LOTTA OVERTIME!

Oh well, money's no object--never has been.

I’d seen/ heard of him through MMs retweeting him. Something made me watch the video of him on Skype    with a BBC conservative host.  His voice!!  He has tiny hands! What a fool he is and uses the same MO as she does. Can’t answer something so keeps repeating and turning a question around through out the interview. 

Today she said something about retweeting making something more important than it is which she does all the time.  After her husband’s  foul tweet she doesn’t get to voice any opinion on someone’s perceived negative tweet. My dislike for her is not rational.

Sadly this show is for some reason, losing its ability to actually allow the panelists to actually express their own views. 

I don't think "losing" is the operative word.  There are probably some STRONG instructions before every show about what and who may not be mentioned or even hinted about--particularly after major faux pas by (usually) Megan and (now) her husband.  (I'd bet Meghan's publicist demands this and requests that it be handled before MM arrives for their morning meetings, so she won't be upset.)

She is clearly unhappy on the show and I am happy about that.  She is obviously not liked by the panel, except for Whoopie and even she is getting tired of her.

I was watching TYT and they talked about Meghan’s abortion comments on the show. Ana Kasparian, who’s known Meghan for years, said that Meghan’s private conversations on this subject don’t exactly match her public ones, implying that all this talk about equating abortion with murder is an attempt by Meghan to earn brownie points from Conservatives. She didn’t give full details on their conversation but wow. I’m sure this won’t make headlines because TYT is an online independent news organization, not one of the giants, but it’s interesting. I’ll post the clip once the live show ends.

It wouldn't surprise me. Her "murder" statement had a false ring. If she genuinely believes murder is such a daily constant in America, she wouldn't just sound like she's making an angry political argument. She would sound like people do discussing children being murdered in schools and houses of worship. I hope that makes sense. It was the feeling I had when she screamed, "Murder, murder."
