I think Megan McCain has low self-esteem...
But she grew up with an adoring father in the comforts of an upper middle class lifestyle.
Was John secretly a neglectful father? What gives? She has terrible self worth and you can see it from space. She looks like she is going to break down in tears everyday. If you look passed the anger, there is a deep sadness.
Then there is the pancake makeup, the inappropriate clothes and the bizarre and attention seeking hairstyles.
Her husband is clearly using her and is a horrible pig. Yet she can’t seem to escape his grizzly clutches.
She can’t come out as the person she is, because she doesn't have the strength to stand up to the republicans that she clearly despises.
If she weren’t the senator’s daughter, wouldn’t you assume she grew up in a broken home and has 3-4 children with different fathers? Like she belongs on Jerry Springer?
I don’t get it. She needs to dump her loser husband and her hateful party and step into the light. She will never shake her demons until she faces her truth.

She's been (for her) demure since announcing she was leaving The View.
So not her choice IMHO.
She got smacked down hard. If they spoke to her about toning things down then she didn't listen. And now, it's like when Marcia Brady was too much of a diva and was told she couldn't be Juliet in Romeo and Juliet.

She’s a lifelong fatty. Republicans value women only for their looks. Do the math.
My own mother constantly told me how fat I was when I was 5’5”, 110 lbs. it really does a number.

She is an emotional mess and she needs to get some sort of rehab before she comes back to the public eye.
Any company that hires her will be seen as taking advantage of a sick woman. She needs help not to be paraded in front of a camera to make a hysterical fool of her self like some circus act. The whole ordeal is sad.
Is Cindy McCain her mother? She always seems like such an ice queen but not as bad as Newts wife who win an ice off here.

The louder, more aggressive the bully (she is one)... the lower the self esteem. Her weight doesn't help either. Not being able to handle the slightest opposition of her views, or criticisms sends her into a tailspin...practically screaming in her defense, always having to be right, shows she really has deep issues.

She always seems like she's pissed about something. Even when she acts like she's happy. It's something in the eyes. Hasselback, Cameron Bure, Faris, etc. They all have it, but hide it behind the smiles, and plastered makeup, and pretty girl schtick. But McCain truly has something else going on. These right-wing women all share this sort of thing. The anger. The defensiveness.

My guess: Her Dad was the only one who showed her attention and made her feel good about herself.
He was probably the only man (and only parent) who never knocked her weight or her style, which is...eclectic. I'm sure deep down John McCain though Megan was a total PITA but he probably called her "Princess", snuck her ice when her mom /Cindy put her on diets, etc. That loser pig of a husband is obviously a moocher and even though he's an fug fatass himself, he probably calls her names for not being a size 4, because that's what he feels he's entitled to as a straight guy. While, in her mind, her daddy would have knocked some sense into her husband and her life would be perfect if he was still alive, Cindy just tells her to either lose weight and stop complaining or get a divorce.

Yeah I agree that the husband probably puts her down a lot. She doesn’t seem really supported. Deplorable husbands are not know for their sensitivity. She is clearly miserable and hates her life.

John McCain was well known to go into rages and had an uncontrollable temper. He wasn't as well liked as the reporters have him put to be. John was savoy enough to flatter the media by always remembering their names and asking about their families. He shared jokes with them. They "bigger" him up in return and thought he could do no wrong, however, he was a warmonger who cheated on all of his wives. Not a nice man if what I have read is true. It made me sick the way he was deified when he died. She has his temper and personality. Daddy's little bitch.

She is the type where everyday is a bad day. They are waking, talking balls of misery and think it’s normal to be that way. Always an argument. Always stopping the fun so they can have their sour moment.
I am so sick of these people. They are always Republican, even the ones that try to hide it. Always.

Nah. I've seen the type of person whose anger hides pain and Megan isn't one of them. Her big issue is a genetic predisposition to rage ( inherited from Daddy) and massive amounts of entitlement. The entitlement stems from wealth and privilege and the level of absolutely unprecedented ass licking her father received from the press for twenty years. McCain was a hateful man but he did something exceedingly clever : he befriended the media and invited them to parties. They thanked him with glowing coverage and endless job offers for his talent free spawn.

Never been to Arizona. I didn’t think of it as being trashy like certain parts of Appalachia. I always think of it as being serene and rustic, and perhaps humble but not trashy. Maybe I’m wrong.
Now that I think about it, the crazy sheriff guy should have been a clue. I don’t think of the southwest as low class so much as cowboy. Respectable. They voted for Biden so there is some intelligent life somewhere out there.

R24 Watching the widespread press histrionics over McCain is instructive to anyone wondering why the worst people are elected to office. The media has a habit of ascribing character and greatness to anyone who makes them feel good about themselves. Seeing Dana Bash wail " the angels are crying" over the passing of a horrible man who lived until his 80s was truly vomit inducing.

Yes, it almost made me psychically ill. He was a narcissist tyrant and a war monger. A selfish, petty man and Meghan is his female clone. He also told racist jokes, so that is being a racist in my opinion. I do not understand why he adopted his daughter, unless he did so to in order to deny his racism. Idk. Cindy is quite the cunt as well. She tried to get an innocent man imprisoned for her drug crime, I have forgotten the details. A very degenerate family. Just vile. I really do not say that lightly. As for Arizona, lol, only one description comes to mind: "A bunch of ill-mannered heathens."

If she does nothing about her weight I imagine she will suffer a heart attack in her mid-forties. I can't imagine how unhealthy her diet is. Then the constant anger doesn't bode well all combined. I have forgotten the name of the author, but I read an excellent book about just how devastating anger is and the toll it takes on ones health. The name of the book is:. "Anger Kills".

R6, I'm sorry you went through that; my mother did the same; I learned one day her father said to her 'nobody likes a fat girl.'
he'd done a number on her and she passed it along; I threw it back a bit when I was an adult and snarked you're no prize...she actually laughed.

Meghan should divorce her husband and the Republican Party. She should take her little girl, buy a ranch in Arizona, and live peacefully off her mom's money for the rest of her life. She can even get drunk every weekend and shoot her guns like she so often bragged about doing on the View.

I don't think she has low self-esteem, but she has put herself into the position of being 'the lone conservative' voice on a talkshow and she has to defend the indefensible shit the conservatives do.
That would take a toll on me. She can't honestly believe some of the things coming out of her mouth. Republicans KNOW they are lying, but they rarely have to do it every day on TV against 4 other women who will call them out.
Republicans usually just lie into the camera and scurry away or don't have anyone counter them.
Plus - she's an incredibly spoiled woman. She has no idea what the real world is about - she has never had to worry about money, a job, her safety, or anything. It makes it very difficult to listen to someone spew out their opinions when the world DOES NOT AFFECT THEM like everyone else.

It's possible John McCain was abusive. I mean, he wasn't above throwing out his first wife like yesterday's garbage. I know a lot of people who speak highly of bad parents to overcompensate.

I normally think Americans are too fucking obsessed with politicos marriages but the story of how McCain dumped his first wife was genuinely distasteful. She had become slightly disabled after a debilitating car accident while he was a pow and when he returned he left her for an heiress. Supposedly even the Reagan's found his behavior off putting. Interesting that you never hear the older children singing the praises of Dearest Daddy McCain.

R40 - exactly what you said. My roommate just got a through heart exam as she has palpitations after gaining 10 lbs during COVID and the heart specialist told her that as weight and hormones fluctuate after 40, homocysteine levels grow, putting you at risk. Meghan is about 30 lbs heavier and not even relaxed and certainly doesn't seem like she bothers with diet and exercise. After a certain point, it isn't about body shaming, but about actual health. Again, she knows her audience...most conservative women I have met are overweight and not at all conscious of the health implications.

When “Bombshell” came out, Meghan went out of her way to explain that Ailes never mistreated her or ogled her like he did with the more attractive women at Fox. She sounded almost apologetic/embarrassed, with the obvious unsaid thing being: he didn’t mistreat the far ugly chicks (she might’ve been the only one).

r50 - that's the bullshit that I hate about conservatives - always trying to downplay the shit. Yes, Ailes sexually harassed many women - as did Bill O'Reilly and several others.
But I just want everyone to know, that I never saw anything and it certainly never happened to me. FUCK YOU BITCH. It's the whole - well, I didn't see it or it didn't affect me personally, so I don't believe it crap.

Seeing as ABC is thinking of hiring the gargoyle, I am going to guess that they put Meagan up to a lot of her charades and she was getting tired of not being who she really is. If she is calm now this is who she really is and I am sure it was starting to get to her that people thought really poorly of her. A person can only take so much. The gargoyle is so coked up she won't care.
