Meghan McCain blames hostile ‘View’ colleagues for her exit in emotional memoir

Meghan McCain is defiant, opinionated, determined, contrarian, won’t be pushed around—and wants you to know it.

She is also at times angry, depressed, anxious, insecure, bursting with raw emotion—and isn’t hiding that either.

All this comes pouring out, in great gushes of words, in her forthcoming audio memoir "Bad Republican." It traces her evolution from senator’s daughter and party girl to conservative warrior on "The View" to a humiliated panelist who quits the hit show, and serves as a scorching response to those she feels have mistreated her.

Please Note: It's a Fox News Link so I'm not including it. Instead, I'll post an angry picture of Meghan

Chief among these are the liberal women she fiercely debated and who, from her vantage point, betrayed her during her painful passage from miscarriage to motherhood during a pandemic.

McCain had both the opportunity and the burden of generally being the only Republican voice on the daytime show, even as she aired her bitter feelings toward Donald Trump, who relentlessly attacked her father in both life and death. And she felt vilified by a misogynistic media that portrayed her as a quirky drama queen, fueled by nasty leaks that, perversely, only added to her fame.

Detractors who see her as an entitled cunt loudmouth will find some material here, and there is ample score-settling with the men as well as the female colleagues that she believes treated her like trash.

But unlike in most journalistic and political memoirs, McCain is the toughest on herself. It is her own spoken words on Audible that describe her headstrong behavior, including the time, as an aimless and boozy young woman, when her famous dad told her she was acting "like a jackass."

What will generate the gossipy headlines is McCain’s account of her searingly personal conflicts with Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg. And she makes no attempt to sugarcoat their tortured relationship or pretend that behind the scenes they were all gal pals.

There was "toxic, direct and purposeful hostility" from the two women, McCain writes, and it "grew meaner and less forgiving" as Trump’s tenure wore on, "as if I had become an avatar for everything they hated about the president." And that was strange, because "Whoopi and Joy saw front and center the emotional trauma I had experienced from President Trump’s attacks on my family.

McCain was troubled by the "open disdain" from Goldberg, who sometimes harshly cut her off on the air: "Once she turns on you, it can create unfathomable tension at the table."

When McCain got pregnant as COVID-19 started ravaging the country, and gave birth last year to her daughter Liberty, she says she "suffered from severe post-partum anxiety." She worried that people out there would try to kill or kidnap the baby. It wasn’t rational, she freely admits, and those feelings "started to snowball into me thinking everyone hated me."

On her second day back at work, during an on-air squabble with Behar about the Democratic Party, McCain tried a tongue-in-cheek line: "Joy, you missed me so much when I was on maternity leave. You missed fighting with me."

"I did not," Behar said. "I did not miss you. Zero."

McCain was stunned. "I felt like I’d been slapped," she said, "Like I'd been slapped by that fucking cunt, Joy!"

When the show went to commercial, McCain burst into "uncontrollable sobbing" at the "nasty" remark. She pulled herself together, but with her hormones raging, she describes the experience as "intensely heartbreaking."

After the show, McCain resumed crying and threw up in a garbage can. And that’s when she concluded: "This s--- isn’t worth it. Nothing in life is worth it."

McCain later told her executive producer to ask Behar to apologize, since "she had humiliated me live on air." She was told that would not happen. Behar, she felt, smelled her vulnerability "like a shark smells blood in the water."

Meghan is fully aware that it’s "just a television show," and insists she’s not "some delicate flower." But there was more anxiety related to the baby, and a history of leaks where she was depicted as "crazy," an "unhinged lunatic." In the end, feeling she "just did not have the emotional bandwidth anymore," McCain left the ABC show with two years remaining on her contract.

What emerges is a portrait of a woman who is in fact treated differently by the media establishment because she is a conservative Republican. In 2019, Seth Meyers turned an NBC interview with a pregnant McCain on his late-night show into a confrontation, and after hours of crying, she refused his emailed request for a phone call. The next day, during a photoshoot for "The View," McCain got a message from her doctor’s office, which led to the crushing news that she had suffered a miscarriage. She blamed herself and her stressful life before eventually realizing that miscarriage is common and she could still have a baby.

by Anonymousreply 3October 19, 2021 4:31 PM

For all the angst, the memoir has plenty of lighter moments. "I’ve messed up on Twitter 20 million times," McCain admits. "I used to drunk-tweet when I was in my early twenties."

When John McCain was running for the White House in 2008, the self-described "punk college kid" was included in a meeting where top aides said he should deal with the age issue by pledging to serve just one term. His daughter said that would sound desperate and he changed his mind, earning Meghan angry stares from the group of high-powered men.

McCain recalls Trump calling her years earlier to invite her on "The Apprentice" and saying repeatedly that would make her a "winner." There was another call, as president, that she didn’t want to take—her father said she had to—where Trump claimed he had been misquoted on some swipe at the senator but did not apologize, and Melania came on the line to say "we love you."

In a stunning admission, McCain says she was so distraught about her father’s 2018 death and having to write a eulogy that she become too testy on the air: "The pressure got to me…Knowing what I know now, I should have taken time off from the show, even if it meant giving up my job."

Megan was practically doted on from the beginning and given a lot of leeway, even as her behavior grew increasingly bizarre and hostile. The truth is Megan is just an angry, entitled and hateful freak just like her father John McCain. He was notorious for his bouts of hyper aggressive bullying behavior, often towards people who had done nothing towards him. And his personality defects predated his pow experience, his military colleagues even nicknamed him McNasty. Prior to Vietnam he had been cited for screaming obscenities at women in the street and had crashed multiple planes. Daddy bailed him out each time of course.

I think she also hates herself for marrying a man who told the world on Twitter that he wasn't attracted to her before they even met. I'd almost feel bad for her if she weren't such a vicious cunt. You would think that someone with her financial resources would just stay single rather than hitch their wagons to someone like that.

I almost feel bad for Whoopi and Joy, who will get more bad press (although they are used to it) and will be painted like villains to scapegoat for the fact that Meghan was toxic, spoiled, and just plain bad TV - interrupting, screeching, eye rolling, confronting. Not that they are perfect either, but at least know how to run the show smoothly.

But this is what The View producers deserve for giving her so much leeway, and letting her nonsense go untethered. They allowed her to behave so poorly without any recompense because all her tantrums got their show in the news. They deserve the heat they will take for this (even though she is clearly abusing the miscarriage angle).

R15 " I almost feel bad for whoopi and joy who will get more bad press". She's trying to paint herself as a bullying victim to incite harassment against them. McCain has no doubt witnessed the trend of people rushing to defend bullying victims, or alleged bullying victims, and is trying to take advantage of that. I count 3,2,1 until the media jumps to Princess Megan's defense. They love coming to the aid of bitchy right wing women. On the other hand, Democratic women can be insulted in the most degrading ways possible and the press doesn't make a peep.

Nope, it's still a shit show. It takes about two minutes to introduce the clucking hens and have them waddle out and sit their fat asses down. Then they'll talk for maybe two minutes and Whoopi will awkwardly look confused and say "Are we going to break? Well, we have to go to break." The pacing of the show is way too annoying. Any good conversation is derailed because they need to take a commercial break.

Those views just parroted the daily GOP talking points. Meghan offered nothing original.

A recently example was about mask mandates. She, along with the other conservative talking heads, demanded that mask mandates end. The second Biden ended the mask mandates (before the Delta surge), she and the other conservative started with “The end of the mask mandates was solely a political decision)—completely ignoring that she had spent the previous months demanding one

That, and she was unable to make a coherent argument; everything turned angry & nasty with her. It's been said before, but someone like Kellyanne - however loathsome she may be - has worked in the trenches for years and if you found her arguments her horrendous, she'd be able to explain the reasons behind them (presumably beyond just keeping Claudia off the streets). Meghan possesses none of those skills because her one lone attribute is being born in a famous conservative family.

I don't doubt it was a tough environment, but she'd probably have more credibility if she didn't lean in so hard on the miscarriage angle & take a least some responsibility for the breakdown in relationships.

R43 I'm guessing you've never actually watched the show and are just reacting to Meghan's claims because you are a right winger.

Had you watched, you would have seen she was often quite rude, stupid, unnecessarily combative, and echoed the right wing views on pretty much every subject. She used her father as a crutch and a get-out-of-jail free card, name dropping him and using Trump's insults of him to paint herself as a victim from both sides, even though she was a standard right wing talking head on every other subject.

She was hired to be the conservative host, as the show has always had at least one or more staunchly conservative hosts, just as it has staunchly liberal hosts and moderate hosts.

So maybe before jumping in to any discussion with the default view that whatever the right wing person claims is true is the actual truth, and immediately attacking the left like a trained puppy, you should sit this one out.

The fourth seat on the View is always intended to be the punching bag. A lightweight who just sputters ineffectually while the other three sneer and humiliate her. No Ann Coulters who can give as good as they got.

Meghan only got the job after Trump's election because her father was the leader of the anti-Trump wing and she was cast as the republican who is still a republican but just "CAN'T" go along with current party positions.

But interestingly Meghan actually started to fight back against the three harpies. I think that probably had less to do with defending Trump than just responding to the black holes of hatefulnerss she had to work with day after day.

Whatever she was paid to be around those people wasn't enough.

Conservative is just made up anyway. Maybe it was genuine at some point, but I don’t think so. It was always engineered to be a contrarian party. The party of being in a bad mood on Election Day. Being angry at something or somebody.

I agree. You're side is not interested in debating anyone. You should proved R57's point. Megan was fine when talking about celebrity gossip and other inane topics, but Joy and Whoopi, who weight in often with their uneducated opinions, insisted on dragging her for her politics because they thought they could benefit from the controversy. Any other decent person would've looked out for someone starting out in the biz and help them if they were going through some personal issues. It's clear that Joy and Whoopi are awful people who would've done the same thing to anyone else.

The show has always had a political tone running through it, but it wasn't until 2015-16 when Trump was running for president that the show became politically volatile. These years, especially 2017-2021 were the years that politics became explosive, which also coincided when McCain and Abby Huntsman were at the table. So yes, they would feel the toxicity more than in other years.

McCain and Hunstman were trying to walk a fine line and defend the indefensible. Even if they weren't blatantly defending Trump, they were defending the Repigs, which is very difficult to do especially when you have Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar (no shrinking flowers) sitting on either side of you.

Of course Huntsman and McCain labeled the view toxic. The whole post-Trump GOP platform of the park is based on a narrative of conservatives being persecuted, particularly in the “mainstream media.”

It would be political suicide for them to say anything else.

Huntsman just seemed dumb and like a deer caught in the headlights. Meghan was a full-bore asshole. Very high school. She must have been the unpopular girl in school. She always had to make a point of calling someone a personal friend. Then, as mentioned above, getting married to someone who said he wasn't even attracted to her. Low self-esteem.

Simpler than that. McCain got the fawning coverage when he was a constant critic of GW Bush and even moreso when he led the actual opposition to Trump. In between he had the poor taste to try to beat Obama. THAT is when you finally saw the nasty coverage of hateful senile vile McCain.

I'll first say that Meghan McCain drives me crazy; however, I can see how Meghan was offended when Joy said she didn't miss her after Meghan returned from maternity leave. HOWEVER, it didn't really go down like that exactly (well, sort of).

Watch the video. Meghan and Joy got into a little squabble--nothing really serious. And then in kind of a joking manner, McCain said, "Oh Joy, you really missed fighting with me when I was on maternity leave." And Joy responded, "No, I did not." So Joy was actually responding to "not missing fighting with McCain while she was on maternity leave." The offensive part came when Joy followed up and said, "No, I did not miss you. Zero."

I'm sure Joy did not miss McCain. Joy is an older woman, and she's beyond this petty bullshit (particularly because once again Meghan interrupted Joy while Joy was making a point during this segment of the show). However, was Joy's intention to drive home the point that she didn't miss fighting with McCain...OR, was Joy striking right at the heart and actually saying she didn't miss McCain at all fighting or not fighting? You may be able to interpret the exchange either way.

Whatever the case, this exchange hurt McCain deeply and asked her producer (behind the scenes) to get an apology from Behar. Joy refused. It was from that day on that McCain never once spoke with Behar off camera. It was also on that day that McCain decided to leave the show, according to her memoir.

Megyn Kelly is even worse with failed “journalism” career.

She was given so many chances. Didn’t she even end up in 60 minutes? She is a terrible journalist and is only good at one thing: the fake news lady voice. She has that down pat in a karaoke way. But she doesn’t have the skills to do tv. She got lucky at fox but without Ailes, she falls flat on her face.

How many chances is she going to get? She will be back at Fox no doubt. She was never even local news quality and without all the smoke and mirrors, she was exposed. She was destined for a career as a car show model which is not a bad gig. Ailes picked her up off the streets and gave her a chance and she betrayed him in the end. She didn’t even have the guts to confess her role in all the antics. The sooner she fades away, the better for society.

[quote] Megan was practically doted on from the beginning and given a lot of leeway, even as her behavior grew increasingly bizarre and hostile. The truth is Megan is just an angry, entitled and hateful freak just like her father John McCain. He was notorious for his bouts of hyper aggressive bullying behavior, often towards people who had done nothing towards him. And his personality defects predated his pow experience, his military colleagues even nicknamed him McNasty. Prior to Vietnam he had been cited for screaming obscenities at women in the street and had crashed multiple planes. Daddy bailed him out each time of course.

I knew a guy that worked on a McCain campaign, he basically had PTSD after months working closely with the Senator, and I've heard many other stories about him. But, everyone thought they had to treat him with kid gloves because of the POW thing. That is why, I never minded Trump's nastiness to McCain, he was just giving McCain about 10% of the crap he'd been dishing out for years.

Like everyone else, Megyn Kelly now has a podcast. She also makes frequent appearances on GB News with Dan Wooten, the new "Fox-like" network that recently launched in Great Britain. Wooten introduces Kelly as "one of the biggest broadcasters in America," and then has the chyron ID as she talks identifying her as "U.S. Media Superstar."

John McCain was a hero and patriot during his torturous times in Vietnam. However, during John McCain's in the Senate, he was no hero or maverick. Yet everyone one who came on The View had to pay homage to John McCain, who was nothing but a Repig--just like the rest of them. John McCain was also deeply involved in the savings and loan banking scandal of the late 1980s. McCain received $112,000 of legal political contribution from Charles Keating Jr. and his associates at Lincoln Savings and Loan Association, along with trips on Keating's jets that McCain belatedly repaid, in 1989. McCain admitted that it gave a wrong appearance. In the end, McCain was cleared by the Senate Ethics Committee of acting improperly or violating any law or Senate rule, but was mildly rebuked for exercising "poor judgment"

I am glad John McCain helped save the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) in 2017, but that was not an act of heroism or patriotism. It was simply giving those without health insurance the opportunity to get affordable health care--just like the other 50 Democratic senators who voted to save the ACA. I know--I was on Obamacare at the time.

She won’t get respect on moderate to liberal political entertainment shows because her views are laughable and ridiculous. She’ll never fit into the mold of conservative political entertainment shows because she’s too big, too loud, too profane, too anti-Trump (she must have LOATHED Abby Huntsman coming into The View).

Megyn Kelly is a pathetic Bitch! She had everything and fucked it up. She should've stayed her ass at fox news where she had it made in the shade.

Notice, after she left fox, she was invited to all of the major glittery liberal Hollywood events. Like the Met Gala, and Hollywood reporter & Variety industry events. She was rubbing shoulders with people like Oprah Kris Jenner, and Myrel Streep etc. She even said she enjoyed the new direction her career was going in. All of that was meant to give Kelly a second chance and a complete makeover from her fox news era.

She went to NBC and seemed to soften up a little. But at times would revert back to glimmers of her fox news persona. She went after Jane Fonda and than made that black face comment and that destroyed everything for her. Plush her ratings were awful at NBC. She was fired, left NBC and went back to her racist right wing roots again. And her entire career has been relegated to YouTube and talking about culture wars and whining about the left.

Sharon Osbourne was on Kelly's podcast last week, trashing the talk about bad mouthing sherry underwood and her other Co host. Sharon was made and angry and now seems to be heading into more of a right wing direction. She even said she wanted to see Kelly in person to give her a hug.

Kelly and Osbourne are both human garbage. Things don't go their way and they turn to hate. Fuck both of them. Sharon is just bitter because she was fired. She should feel lucky she even hah a career in America with that accent she has, along with that nasty attitude of hers.

I recently read an interview online featuring Candace Cameron, who was one of the co-hosts of The View for a couple of years, 2015-17. She said she experienced PTSD during and a bit after her time on the show. She said she was full of anxiety and stress for most of her tenure. She said this was caused because she was the "conservative" voice at the table, and she felt a lot of stress having to assume that conservative role all the time. Apparently, it was a burden for her. However, she also said a lot of her stress came from the fact that she really wasn't all that much into politics or heavy issues. So for much of the time, she didn't really have an opinion about a lot of political topics or didn't feel strongly about some issues--but yet she still had to say something and be responsive. She also didn't feel comfortable voicing her opinions about certain hot topics--it's just not her thing to be that vocal about sensitive, private or political issues. Yet she took the job, but high-tailed it out of there as soon as the reboot of Full House became a reality.

The problem is they feel the need to have a character on the show who is conservative. The need to fill a role is problematic. They don’t have a professional liberal pundit to counter the professional conservative one. Joy and Whoopie can throw down, but they would get lost in the blizzard of conservative propaganda being spewed by the conservative robot.

Nicolle Wallace really wasn’t conservative. She was a moderate republican, now a center/left Dem. She actually had reasonable comments and that CANNOT be allowed because the conservative role has talking points that MUST be spewed as Candace found out. Candace was actually fairly reasonable most of the time which I found shocking. She didn’t agree with the conservative talking points of the day any times. Likewise, Abby is a self-professed moderate and would have reasoned conversation.

Meg IS the bully. She tried her damndest to bully and lie and gaslight nonstop. I loved when Joy told her she didn’t miss her. She spoke for 99% of the View’s audience.

They let Rosie O'Donnel spew her conspiracy theories week after week with no consequence. Even Rosie wasn't crazy enough for the View. Ultimately it was Megan's decision to leave. She was essentially being used as a prop, and on the occasion where she didn't shrivel up as she was expected to, got dragged on the air repeatedly. Perhaps they should just give up on the illusion that they want to entertain different sides, but then their ratings will be in the toilet. However, I'm sure they'll find someone unwilling to turn down an easy paycheck even if they have to compromise their dignity.

I love the poster in this thread trying to claim Meghan is some sweet, innocent naif, new to all this Hollywood stuff!

She grew up in the spotlight. She worked for her father's campaign in 2007. She launched a lifestyle/propaganda blog. She wrote articles for The Daily Beast (which is why, incidentally, to this day they will not publish any negative stories about her, only things that make her look good. It's her People Magazine).

She initially made a name for herself by attacking a few bigger names in the Fox News / Republican world, primarily about personal grievances she had with people. As of the past five years she has dropped that facade and now primarily just attacks Dems with regurgitated RNC talking points and whatever her disgusting husbear provides her.

She's "written" (or more likely coauthored, as she is not a great writer) multiple books, including "My Father, John McCain" (seriously!). She had repeated guest host stints on The View before joining as a full co-host.

She was an on-air analyst for MSNBC in 2011. She had a talk show in 2013 on some obscure cable networks (cancelled less than six months later). She became co-host on another obscure talk show (cancelled again, less than six months after she joined). She became a Fox News contributor in 2015. She was a co-host of another talk show in 2016. She left Fox News entirely in 2017 and became a co-host of the VIew.

She seems to be banned from Fox News now although she now has that opinion columnist gig in The Daily Mail as a consolation prize. The View was her biggest chance at stardom and she couldn't make that work, either, even though she was kept on at the show far longer than she should have been due to personal relationship with management. SHE is the problem.

She is anything but a naive waif. She's just bad at what she seems to want to do. Lukewarm sales for her books, lukewarm television hosting and commentary, etc. And now she's writing lukewarm opinion pieces for the Daily Fail.

So please spare us the claims she didn't know how the Big Hollywood Show worked, and how Joy and Whoopi failed in taking her under their arms, and she was just an innocent wide-eyed girl who was eaten alive by a nest of harpies.

Either you don't know what you are talking about, or, which is more likely, you are being disengenuous because you want to attack the two open liberals on The View. The fact that they're women, too, is just an added misogynistic bonus.

She was a moderate republican, now a center/left Dem. She actually had reasonable comments and that CANNOT be allowed because the conservative role has talking points that MUST be spewed as Candace found out

The republicans are just a group of liars. They lie and distort everything. They haven't told the truth about anything since 2016

The show is at its best when they have a conservative and they have debates. (especially since they are so proud of that New York Times Sunday Magazine article calling them the most important political show on TV.)

It's sort of awkward now. They are pretty light on politics probably not wanting to hurt Biden's image. The odd thing now is that it seems like the force Sunny and Sara to have sort of dissenting views on politics. It seems scripted and almost like they take turns.

Ana Navarro is confusing. She's a republican? All her views seem democratic. (I've never seen her on CNN.) Today she talked about her sex life which I had to fast forward thru due to nausea.

R165 you are delusional. He had no problem with the dog whistles that at that time were loud and shrieking from his campaign about "Barack Hussein Obama" and campaign affiliates. He was not a noble man. The reason he corrected the woman was because she said the quiet part out loud.

Now, of course, since Obama won the dog whistles got louder and louder and became more obvious and blatant until they weren't dog whistles anymore, they were outright saying shit like that. Enter Trump, who took that and ran with it, and it's a standard Republican tactic now.

The only thing that made me happy with McCain was his thumbs down vote on dismantling Obamacare. But he only did that because he knew he wouldn't be running for re-election, and as a final "fuck you" to Trump. He didn't want liberals to be too happy about it either, based on the statements he made after the vote. I certainly didn't read it as him suddenly developing character.

Ana is a moderate who is agreeing with Dems because republicans have gone batshit crazy. Again, she is an actual moderate. She’s voting Dem until republicans rid themselves of their current ways, or she will switch parties.

Yes, the show does seem scripted at times. They don’t need a conservative. Why? Because THAT becomes extremely scripted as republicans just spew talking points.

Light on politics to protect Biden? From? They could help him if they talked politics more. They could defend him, talk about all the great things in the infrastructure bill.

R173 being for gay marriage does not make one a moderate. She has since touted ALL of the Republican talking points on virtually every other subject. Even Her Father, John McCain, who ran with the "maverick" moniker, voted with other Republicans 87 percent of the time during the time when Republicans only voted with each other 91 percent of the time.

Someone's support of gay marriage does not instantly transform all their other positions into moderate ones.

Most of the conservative women that have appeared on the show are coming in with an attitude to fight because of their misperceived nonsense.

Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America

Isn’t it funny that Meghan McCain, who has always been a bully and basically a lowlife, is now complaining that it was she who was bullied by the Slobs and Radical Left maniacs of “The View.” At the request of many of her representatives, I made it possible for her father to have the world’s longest funeral, designed and orchestrated by him, even though I was never, to put it mildly, a fan. In his own very special way, he was a RINO’s RINO. Despite his fighting against me, I won Arizona by a lot in 2016 and won Arizona by even more in 2020—unfortunately the vote counters in 2020 were far more important than the candidate (See the determinative Report issued Wednesday by the Arizona Auditors!). I have since found out that McCain, who was close to last in his class at Annapolis, sent the fake and totally discredited scam Dossier to the FBI, hoping to stop the “Trump Train.” In any event, Meghan should fight the Communists instead of explaining how they beat her, hurt her, and made her “physically ill.” She should fight back against the Losers of The View the way she fights against very good and well-meaning Republicans, and she would do herself a world of good!

That's what makes the money and keep most of these people relevant. I don't know if M2 believes the stuff she spews. Maybe, on some level she does. But, IMHO, she's only a Republican because her father was a Republican and that is how she has been raised. There is no independent thoughts about her. She is clearly a "party before country" type but has deluded herself into thinking that she is patriotic.

It's not surprising that she immediately jumped on the bandwagon of "Conservative women are terrorized" scenario. That is what sells and the right-wing media attempted to push that angle of her nonsense. But, there was the audiences of "The View" that witnessed her abhorrent behavior on the show. The backlash has been swift and harsh. The internet let it be known to her that "it wasn't them but YOU!" Like many of her age, she is very "controlled" (for lack of a better word) by social media. So, when her "piece of shit" whatever broke and she and the right-wing tried to push the terrorized conservative woman bullshit it didn't fly. To save whatever reputation that she thinks she has, and those "liberals" who she considers as friends, she knows that she had to tone it down.

M2 has no independent thought(s). She truly is representative of what the Republican party is today. All she did on "The View" was parrot Republican talking points (as she was probably pushed to do by the Republican machinery) Everything is an "us against them" and there must be a battle type of thinking. Just look at the recent Charlie Kirk incident when he was asked by an audience participant; "When do we get to use our guns? When do we get to kill them?" This is the Republican party now. No ideology. No principles. It just about winning and power.

Because the republican party is despicable. They don't have any values to uphold. When hiring a republican, it can only go two ways, you hire someone like meghan who outright lies, or you hire someone like Anna, who isn't going to lie and ends up agreeing with the rest of the women 99% of the time

Even Liz Cheney would end up agreeing with the women most of the time

I wish one of the ladies would have told her that compared to the republican party, the democrats have moved past this

Had the situations been reversed, republicans would have immediately declared the democratic party domestic terrorists/traitors. They'd have had the dem politicians rounded up, and brought to Guantanamo Bay prison.

I also wish they would have also told her she's DAMNED LUCKY to be able to be a guest anywhere because if the situations would have been reversed on 9/11, her ass would still be in jail for ignoring the memo that said, "Osama Bin Ladin plans to attack America, with planes"

^ I think it was a hard guest appearance to do. While I like Sunny, she was clearly primed to tear Condoleeza a new one. Maybe a bit too eager. You could just see it in her body language. But, that would have played 100% into the Conservatives hands and they would have had a field day with it. So, IMHO, Condi was never asked any really tough questions or challenged. The word must have come down from Kimberly Godwin not to "go there". With that said, it was quite clear that Condi came in with a chip on her shoulder (a la Meghan McCain) and was expecting to be attacked and therefore sent a cold and condescending type of attitude to all of the women on the panel. It was awkward to watch.

So, Mme. Secretary, what was it like being appointed by a president who wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer?

by Anonymousreply 259October 30, 2021 7:11 PM

I missed this thread last week. Why is Meghan making a big deal out of Joy quipping "I didn't miss you at all." A few months before that, didn't Meghan call Joy a "bitch" on air? I think her words to Joy were, "Don't worry about me, bitch."

Meghan is emotionally an adolescent. She intentionally played the character of the "badass girl". Every week, when the ladies talked about how they would spend their weekends, Meghan would proudly announce that she was going to get drunk and shoot her guns. Because that was somehow the American thing to do. Maybe in the Appalachian mountains, but most professional women in their 30s don't brag about getting drunk and acting like college kids and teenagers, whether or not they have kids.

And, she was always referring to her mysterious "friends". A panelist would ask, "Meghan, how do you feel about this topic." And she'd start up, "Lots of my friends are calling me and saying...." She really, really wanted us to know that she had friends. After a while, her "My friends are telling me that..." started to sound a LOT like Trump's "People are saying...."

She was paranoid. The ladies would be talking about someone in the news, a spoiled person who was handed their career, and Meghan would blow up and think that they were covertly talking about her.

The people who have been nastiest to Meghan are Republicans. Her father, though an angry asshole, was respected among Republicans, primarily because of his time in the military.

Then Trump, because of his fragile ego, freaked out when McCain stood up against him, so he tried to turn Republicans against McCain. Suddenly all, of the people who had respected McCain three years before--and had voted for him to be President ten years prior--fell in line behind Trump and trashed McCain on social media. Millions of people blindly followed their bully of a leader and decided to cancel McCain the "war hero". Even his best buddy, Uncle Lindsey, continued to suck up to the bully who was trashing McCain. How could Meghan stay loyal to these people?

Not that John McCain needs any sympathy for being a victim of bullying. This is the man who publicly joked at a fundraiser, 'Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly? Because Janet Reno is her father." Real classy man picking on a CHILD.

Megan's deal is she watched her father treat everyone around him viciously for years and be fawned over in return. She expects the same treatment. I think another factor in her entitlement is the media really hyped her back in 2008 when she embarked on her " writing career". The Washington post published some nauseating op ed declaring that Megan was the sensible new face of the Republican party.

While on the View, she mentioned multiple times that she had a copy of the US Constitution on her nightstand. I guess it was in a book format, and she read it like it was a bible. Her fetichism of US patriotism was creepy. It's like she thought the constitution was the Bible, and her dad was Jesus in the New Testament. Who was she trying to impress with that tidbit. You know she does it JUST so she can brag about doing it. When I hear that she keeps it on her nightstand, the image that pops into my mind is her making her husband read it to her while she furiously operates a vibrator on herself, and then her reading it to her husband while he bangs away as they try to create more (Republican) Americans.

The whole thing about her having the constitution next to her bed and pictures of the founding fathers on the wall etc is just a hilariously juvenile attempt by her to signal to everyone that she is the "uber American" and therefore her opinions should matter, more than everyone else's.

[quote] It's like she thought the constitution was the Bible, and her dad was Jesus in the New Testament.

Exactly! (the last piece of your post R269 made me laugh to tears, as revolting an image as that is, haha!)

This woman announced on her first day that she admired Elisabeth Hasselbeck and was intimating she wanted her own split screen with Joy. She was nasty, combative, refused to listen to others, behaved like a spoiled brat, and true to form once other people stood up to her terrible behaviour she clutched her pearls and screamed: "How can you SAY that? Can everyone see how bullied I'm being?!"

There was a funny Twitter feed a few years back written by people who had been to school with her and how awful she was. One girl said Meghan was copying her work during a test, and this girl was the one who got in trouble for covering up her paper. That's the kind of privilege a McCain has, and Meghan still cries all the time about what a victim she is.

BINGO! It's the same. It's the same as the fanatical religious person who has no idea what Christianity (for example) is about. One goes to such a person's house the door mat reads "Welcome, In Jesus's name." You say "hello" or "good morning" the reply is; "Yes, our Lord has blessed us with a beautiful day, praise the Lord." You go to bathroom and "I love Jesus" plays from the fuckin' toilet dispenser as you unroll it. But, this is the same person that will prevent you from having free-will, freedoms, and choice.

Remember a couple of years ago, when Elisabeth was a guest on the View to promote her book?

Meghan was so attention seeking, even when she was kissing Elisabeth's ass. Joy revealed that the difference between Elisabeth and Meghan was that Elisabeth only fought with the panelists ON stage but not backstage. Basically, Elisabeth was likeable when the cameras stopped rolling. Sounds like Meghan wasn't likable in front of or behind the camera. Elisabeth very, very subtly says that when you disagree with other panelists, you should avoid being an asshole because you'll have to face the same people the next day when you come in to work. She was so subtle about it Meghan probably didn't realize it was a dig at her.

Elisabeth had obviously become even more religious (if that's possible). "God", "God", "God"...... She sounds like a fucking fanatic.

by Anonymousreply 304November 4, 2021 9:43 AM

First of all, it’s interesting to see so many if you being misogynistic towards a woman you don’t know and don’t like. It’s one thing to not like a public figure but…calling MM cunt and other names like you personally have a bone to pick with her is all kinds of wrong.

Second, Meghan is no more bitchy than any of the other hosts of the View. She was hired as the anti-Trump conservative. To me Joy and Whoopi should’ve tried being better sports about her conservative views given 1) that’s why she’s there and 2) she’s actually the most basic version of a Republican you can find. I could easily put together a montage of MM dissenting with her party over various topics. You couldn’t put together two minutes of Joy or Whoopi saying something negative about Democrats or the Left in general.

People say she interrupts. Uh, it’s a discussion based show. Again, I think it’s this thing where liberals don’t want to admit they’re liberal do instead they lean into petty matters of cough. It’s rude when the rich chubby white girl interjects and contradicts what one of the cranky stodgy liberal women has to say. In reality MM would generally wait her turn and have the least to say in any particular segment.

And it’s like this: put a moderate leftist on a panel full of talking points/FOX News parrots and see how well they come across to a predominantly conservative audience. They would probably seem annoying and contrary and rude too.

All that said, I don’t really feel bad for Meghan. She saw that even when splitting her time between Republican commentator and prissy white woman who was just shell shocked over every one of Trump’s tweets they still gave her the business. Should’ve just kept it real and let them be mad instead of trying to be their friends.

[quote] In reality MM would generally wait her turn and have the least to say in any particular segment.

She definitely interrupted. A LOT. At a certain point it became so much that she was told she would always get a chance to speak, but to wait until everyone else was done. That's why she would frequently say "Can I speak now?" or Whoopi would say "Do you have anything to add, Meghan?" That was designed to stop her CONSTANT interrupting. That being said, when Meghan was arguing with Joy and said "Oh, you know you missed fighting with me, Joy," it was clear Meghan was trying to lighten the mood in a heated moment. I thought Joy's response of "I missed you zero" was actually really uncalled—and I generally like Joy.

Also, while I'm sure she was a nightmare behind the scenes, I actually sort of liked Meghan on the show--at least she said something different from the other women or frequently added a new angle on things. That's one of my main issues with Sunny. I agree with her on lots of issues, but she just says the same things over and over again. For example, she's commented that some people are "tired of her talking about race" but really they're tired of her saying the *exact same things* about race in every episode. For example, she keeps insisting they don't want to teach history in schools. This week's conservative guest host said that's not true—that she learned about slavery, segregation, etc. in school. Clearly Sunny means something different when she says "history," but instead of realizing that her message isn't getting through, she just continued to say "they don't want to teach history." Okay, sure, whatever.

Also, I will take Meghan over someone like Elisabeth Hasselbeck any day. At least Meghan sometimes displayed a sense of humor. That's far more than I can say about Hasselbeck who clutched her pearls at every turn and literally never deviated from Republican talking points. Meghan would, of course, bring up Republican talking points, but it was sometimes clear she didn't necessarily agree with them—instead, she'd note that "this how the other side sees it" or that she was looking at "the politics" of a situation. I actually appreciated that she told me what Fox News might be saying without me having to watch Fox News. Hasselbeck on the other hand would argue every right wing talking point like it was the gospel and literally never displayed a single independent.

Hmm... I guess you see it simply as "woke" talking points, R316 and that's a luxury of white privilege. But, for people of color--particularly Black people, their true history had been taken and/or hidden from them. Far too many people of color are just learning about Greenwood, the truth about Reconstruction, and just so many other things. There are whites (many who have never learned of these things themselves) who do not want this history taught or to be reminded of how horrible people can be. The teaching of this history is not an attempt to make white people feel bad for being white. It's to empower everyone so that it can never happen again.

R309/R310/R311 Saying all Meghan did was interrupt people is just the acceptable party line for people who don't want to admit they hate her because she's a conservative. Like I said: it's a discussion show. It's not a parlor game of polite conversation. I do think it's rude to interrupt people in the middle of making a point, but on a TV show where there's a finite amount of time between segments, multiple topics to get to, and multiple people tasked to speak, no you can't always "wait your turn". I'm not going to use dinner party etiquette for a TV show. It's not the same thing.

Plus, with the slight exception of Sunny some of the time, what were Whoopi, Sunny, Abby or Ana ever saying that Meghan needed to just shut up about? OK, yes, we get it. You hate Trump, you hate Republicans, Democrats are always right, blah-blah-blah-MSNBC-parrot. Meghan was the only even semi wildcard on the show. Sometimes she would side with the rest of the panel, sometimes she wouldn't.

Would someone, (other than R333), explain to me what it is to be a Conservative today in the USA? What does that mean? What is the ideology behind it? How can anyone that knows and values doing what is "right" over that which is "wrong", and who also believe in truth, support Trump and the Republican party of today?

R74, R75, R76 Abby Huntsman said on a 'View' podcast with Sara that ABC News executives who are no longer at ABC were the deciding factor in her quitting.

Sara said that the women at the show, both cohosts and crew, are a support system for her away from her husband and men in her life, and she said that when she had post-partum panic attacks, a producer on the show told her to take time off and stay home because it was clear she was overwhelmed. She said she is grateful for that kind of support, which she said she has never encountered in the news business.

Abby said "That's...really interesting to hear. I had the opposite experience. It was the deciding factor in my leaving." She emphasized that ABC News has had a major staff turnover and different execs are now in place, but while she was on the show, she got pregnant and then found out she was pregnant with twins and subsequently found a lump in her breast and had to get a biopsy. She had a meltdown and called ABC News executives to ask for time off and she said they told her absolutely not, that she is contractually obligated to show up for work. And she said that was when she made the decision to quit. She said after she decided to quit, she started to love being on the show because she didn't feel pressured to measure up so she wouldn't be fired. She said everyone comes in knowing how frequently hosts are 'rotated in and out' and so she always felt high pressure to say things that worked for TV.

I've listened to all the podcast interviews of former hosts so far and all are candid. Almost all of them, except Abby Huntsman, say something to the effect that their time on The View was the most traumatic time of their lives, and almost all of them say that they were basically baited to come on to be themselves and express their opinions and then got there to find out that they were criticized when their opinions weren't (as Abby Huntsman put it) bombastic enough. She and Sara, who are both accused of being wishy washy, both agreed that they won't compromise their moderate opinions just because audiences and producers feel like having a middle-of-the-road perspective means not having a valid opinion.

I was impressed with Abby in her interview. I assumed she was a nepotism baby like Meghan McCain is because of who her father is, but she worked the overnight shifts at different productions for years and worked for years as a booker, scheduling cars for guests, etc. before she ever got on TV. She and Sara have similar career trajectories, whereas Meghan just bought her art history degree from Columbia and was given an on-air 'political analyst' jobs.

And, that line just goes to show you that it was BULL SHIT when Brian Teta said that "The View" did not want the fights like those of the "Real Housewives'. That's EXACTLY what they wanted and that is why Meghan McCain lasted as long as she did. But, here's the catch-22... bratty, childish, and bombastic behavior IS Meghan McCain's true attitude and personality on screen and off. Most people are not like that which is why Cameron Bure and Jedidiah Bilah (who was screwed royally without Vaseline) did not last. But, that's not what the audience wants. The audience wants to hear genuine debate. But, that's not what gets the publicity ie social media and even many newscasts and other media.

Real and true Conservatives (whatever that now means) won't book the show because they can't defend this mess of Trump and today's Republicans. They find themselves agreeing more with Whoopi and Joy. That's an anathema to whoever is running this campaign of divisiveness. Just look at the recent Condoleeza Rice appearance where she promoted the Republican strategy and said that it was time to move on from January 6th. The woman had to spend a week in trying to explain what she really meant to convey. Uh-huh...

If you are a "today's Conservative/Republican" the "whoevers are expecting you to show up at The View with guns drawn and ready to fight to the death. Remember that Piro woman's interview? Whoopi said something as simple as "Good Morning" and Piro shot back with an attitude of "What's good about it? It's raining". The interview just went downhill from that point. But, this is what the FOX (and similar media) and their audiences wants. However, it isn't what the majority of viewers and audiences want to see.

I have no idea who half of these women are on the View. I know Whoopi, Joy, used to know Megan McCain, and Ana someone a Republican who hates Trump and is fabulous. I remember from names from the old days but it's never been a show I watched.

I've only seen Megan a few times on the show. Each time she was humorless, defensive, immature, shallow, ignorant of the facts and loudly unpleasant. Whatever issues anyone had with anyone else on the show I can (and do) absolutely believe it was that cunt Megan who was the root of a lot of those problems.

Life is too short to deal with people like her. Fuck that fat, ugly, mean Megan McCain and her fat, ugly, mean husband. Give them a duo act on Fux and let's watch their relationship unravel on the air.

The View podcast is fascinating. I am really surprised that everybody is so candid about virtually everything. Most of them also said that they came away from The View as better people because they were far more confident in being able to express their opinions and stand up for themselves. You have to on that show, or you will get run over.

The firing of Jed seemed to many of us to have had something to do with Hillary Clinton, because Clinton was on the show and afterward it leaked that she and her team were furious because they cleared all the questions in advance and Jed spung an impromptu question that was not planned, and then she was fired. If the firing wasn't really related to that, then the execs really fucked up the timing. They wouldn't have had to fire her so abruptly just to bring in McCain. They could have brought her in at any time and given Jed at least a week to save face.

On the podcast, she says she found out she was fired by a reporter who called to ask if it was true. She laughed and said no. Then she called Sunny in a panic. Sunny was at a wedding and called her back and she laughed and said it wasn't true. Then they found out it was true and Sunny expected she was about to be fired because she hadn't gotten any intel about Jed and she said she prepares and carries out interviews in the same way.

I would call that a toxic working environment. Jedediah Bila was fired with no warning and no explanation and her coworkers were in the dark about it and felt insecure about their own jobs as a result. I've been in offices like that and everyone gets paranoid and tries to get out in case they are in danger and don't know it.

It's out there that Jed had the lowest Q-Rating of any permanent host that had ever appeared on The View. I personally liked her. They were planning on firing her anyway. But, that still does not excuse the awful way in which ABC handled that matter. I still believe that once FOX fired Meghan (it's still unverified if that is what really happened but she has been fired from every other place) that ABC jumped on the "opportunity" because of the upcoming elections.

Megan's biggest problem in terms of being a TV personality was not so much her odious politics ( which like it or not are shared by about half of America) but her severe lack of social skills. Normal people understand when to dial it the fuck back. Like when the news about Kathy Griffin's cancer surgery came up and she immediately snapped something along the lines of " I always disliked her". Even the biggest right wing bottle blonde bitch ( other than Megan) could have managed at least a feigned sympathetic comment. Something like " I disagree with her far left views but wish her luck with her treatment , blah blah blah". Her father was the same way. Just full of unrelenting spite and bile. Kind of an exhausting way to live but some people are like that.

Meghan McCain: People Think I’m ‘Spoiled, Entitled Queen of Nepotism’

Meghan McCain is no stranger to controversy, tough questions, and being put on the spot. And so while we’ve been best friends for years, I’ve rarely come to her defense publicly because, frankly, she doesn’t need me to. But in advance of the release of her new Audible memoir, Bad Republican, I knew I could ask her some blunt questions, even uncomfortable ones, about her time at The View, the public’s perception of her, her marriage to a provocative right-wing media personality, motherhood, and even her love of fast-casual food chains.

-So why did you leave The View?

I was unhappy for a while. These haven’t been easy times, since basically President Trump got elected. And then my dad was diagnosed with glioblastoma brain cancer, which has a survival rate median of 14 months. Best bet, you’ll probably get nine. It’s a very dangerous and deadly brain cancer, and he didn’t actually die quickly, but he sort of lost his ability to function quickly. And then I felt like, and I talk about this in [Bad Republican], that I became more of a caricature to people in the media and the world and on camera. I felt like when I would go home to Phoenix, there were girls that go to my high school approaching me at La Grande Orange and they would be like, “We love you, you’re speaking for us.” And that felt really good. And then like so many things do with so many women, after I had a baby it just changed, and my life perspective changed.

But I expected to go back to The View like I had always done everything there, which was like a hardass. And I went back, I think it was five or six weeks after my dad died, with bereavement leave, and then I just pushed through, even though I was emotionally just a fucking mess.

-Did you ever worry about getting canceled while you were on The View?

Daily. Yes. I always prepped really hard before The View, really hard, like starting when I first woke up super-early in the morning, and I would prep very hard with my producer. But you always worry about making a mistake. I said a few things off the cuff that ended up totally, brutally coming back to bite me, and are still used everywhere. Some co-hosts before me did way worse, so that made me feel a little better.

-But The View’s always been known, in the 25 years that it’s been on, for its backstage personality clashes. Do you think you got it worse than others?

I think all conservative women on that show get it worse. I mean, Candace Cameron Bure just gave an interview two days ago talking about how she has post-traumatic stress syndrome from working at The View. I believe her. I believe people when they say that this is very, very serious.

by Anonymousreply 365November 16, 2021 12:44 AM

-Why do people have this princess impression of you?

I’m very aware of this, like, spoiled, entitled queen of nepotism persona that is out there. Some of it I think is, I didn’t always react my best on air on The View. To my defense, neither did anyone else, everybody’s just watching me react badly the most and making the most of it.

I think partly Saturday Night Live parodies have this way of becoming reality. I’ve seen it so many times with Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton. The stereotypes of who you are become true. Bush being an idiot. I still think Alex Trebek is someone who celebrities hated. Sometimes the parody is the person, and I think that probably played a factor, too. People really loved it when SNL dunked on me, and it was not flattering or kind. And, by the way, they were pretty nice to the rest of the [View] cast, just not great to me.

I feel like I have a pretty healthy sense of humor. But I think if people knew what it has done to me mentally, emotionally, the toll it’s taken on me, the depression that has followed … just the dark spirals. I felt like for a while that I was just the laughing stock of the country. And it’s not true or fair or accurate, but when you’re your worst critic in your head, it’s very hard.

-OK, tell me about life after The View.

Life after The View is much less stressful. I’m much happier in my day-to-day. I’ve really been enjoying, as cheesy as it sounds, just cooking for my family, taking care of [one-year-old daughter] Liberty, getting back into writing a column.

-Shifting gears to national politics. How does this end for the GOP? What’s next for Trump and the party?

When it comes to 2024, I mean, every indicator is he’s going to run. I fear for what that is going to do for obviously everything else, doomsday scenario. I’m really fucking sick of boomers and people that are 80 running everything. I think it’s the crux of all of America’s problems. It’s awful. And I was never a fan of age limits in politics because my father was quite old when he died in office. But I actually think 80 might be a good cutoff. That’s really old.

-On a more personal note, you’ve been through a lot with parenting, but also seem to have found tremendous joy in it. Tell me more about that.

I was diagnosed with postpartum anxiety. I had very severe postpartum preeclampsia. I had an emergency C-section. And I had a really hard time physically getting back to health. And then I had a hard time mentally. I felt like I was drowning for a little while when I had postpartum anxiety, which is described medically as the sister of postpartum depression.

And so [McCain’s husband] Ben [Domenech] and some of my friends said, “You’re struggling. You’re having a hard time.” And my thing was that I was so obsessed with Liberty and so consumed with her that I was scared of anything happening to her. I was scared that robbers were going to come in our house and steal her. I was worried that people were going to push me down when I was pushing her in her stroller …

by Anonymousreply 366November 16, 2021 12:45 AM

-You were catastrophizing … (Don't you just love the rich, white, folks?)

It was very debilitating. And I got on medication. I got on anti-depressants. I went to therapy. I started doing all the tools that the doctor told me to, and then I got better, which is what happens when you follow medical advice, which is why I love my doctors!

-I remember you being worried before you had Liberty that once you had kids you’d lose your freedom and your fun. And I told you, “Oh, you will. You definitely will.” But I said it wouldn’t matter in the same way.

You were so right. I mean, yeah, can I go to a casino and gamble until 2 a.m.? No. But what‘s replaced it is so much better. Everything’s way better. And I just want to be around her all the time.

-I want to talk about your miscarriage. I was so proud of you for sharing that story. Why did you?

Well, this is really fucked up. I found out I was miscarrying the day after my Seth Myers appearance. It was after the show, before my photo shoot for the New York Times [Magazine] cover they did about The View. And I was obviously very upset and freaking out. But [The View] had such a severe leaking problem, I was actually really concerned that it was going to leak out onto the internet. And I was petrified that it was going to be a story in a tabloid or be turned into something like, “Meghan had a hysterical meltdown because she’s a sociopath and a lunatic, and she’s always crying and she’s just a mess.” Isn’t that fucked up?

-Your husband has his critics. Did you know that he was kind of a controversial figure when you started dating?

No. I knew he was conservative. When we started dating, I started asking around to other people. There was one person in the media who had like a really … he knew him, and this person in the media is pretty well-known, and he hates Ben, and he was going around telling people that I was with this not-good dude, and he was a right-wing nut.

And it kept getting back to me. And then there’s another woman, who was a journalist, who was like, “I just keep hearing he’s a bad dude.” And I was like, “But every experience I’ve had with him is incredible and wonderful, and he’s an amazing boyfriend, so I need you to be really specific about what you’re talking about.” And then I later found out he had created websites that, if you’re liberal, you find controversial. He had been fired for a plagiarizing controversy, and that was 20 or 15 years ago, a very long time ago. And I didn’t care. I had my own shit in my background. And there were a few people in conservative circles that I know for a fact told Ben not to date me, and that I would be bad for him.

-Shifting gears to national politics. How does this end for the GOP? What’s next for Trump and the party?

When it comes to 2024, I mean, every indicator is he’s going to run. I fear for what that is going to do for obviously everything else, doomsday scenario.

-People associate you with Arizona. I’ve always associated you with New York, because that’s where we met. Now you live in D.C. Do you think you fit in there?

Yeah, I do. I love it here. It reminds me of my dad a lot. I wasn’t quite ready to pull the trigger to move right back to Arizona, which I’m sure I will eventually. And we have so many friends here. My in-laws are down the street. We are political people, and political people are always in and out of D.C. So it didn’t feel like it was this giant uprooting. It’s not like we moved to Texas or something.

-And there is a P.F. Chang’s down at Tyson’s II [shopping mall].

It wouldn’t have so many locations if it weren’t popular. I’m not the only fucking person to eat at P.F. Chang’s. But I really like it here, I am happy here. My mom has a place here, and like I said, I spent a lot of my life here, too, growing up.

-How about your career. What’s next? Do you still want to be in politics?

So I love politics more than anything. I love it way more than TV. It is much cleaner. And it’s so funny, because I used to say this to my executive producer at The View, I was like, “The View makes politics look like the easiest, most loyal [job]” because I have worked in places where people do not leak about the spheres they’re in. That whole thing can happen with principals and candidates and it never lands on the internet.

I don’t see myself being in television. I’ve finally got back to this place of being happy and content, and TV is very hard and emotionally taxing, and the best people don’t gravitate towards it.

So I would prefer, actually, if I can, to subsist in writing and maybe political consulting. I would love to work on campaigns again. And, actually, I’ve been exploring that a lot right now because it’s also a space that, for as much shit as I’ve gotten in the media, for all these negative stereotypes that we talked about, I’m taken very seriously in D.C. circles and it feels nice. It’s nice to be respected. It’s nice to be understood, especially in Republican conservative circles, because people understand all of the drama.

I laughed at how she says that she is " taken seriously in D.C. circles". The funniest part is there is probably some truth to it. Believe it or not Washington DC is even shallower than L.A. in certain ways. Megan and her family are certainly typical DC scumbags so I'm not surprised that she feels at home there. The one thing that baffles me is how surprised she is at the reception she's received. Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham are unbearable cunts but I've never heard them whine that people are cruel to them. They seem to understand that the provocative mean spirited behavior they engage in will make enemies. McCain seems to truly believe that she was a sweetheart bullied by the public. Odd.

She never even tried to hide her hypocrisy; instead she really did believe in one rule for her and another for others. I remember her getting upset because someone said "Fuck Trump" sometime (I think). She kept talking and bitching about how much it lowered the tone and how offensive it was. At the same time she was plastering "Fuck cancer" all over her Twitter and when people pointed it out, she was all: "I can't BELIEVE you are telling me to watch my language when we're talking about CANCER!" She has no shame.

My favourite thing ever though was when the Jewish artist Eli Valley did a caricature of her, pointing our her cynical "love" of all things Israel, and she huffed on Twitter: "This is the most antisemitic thing I've ever seen!" She's the most ridiculous person out there. She's the victim of antisemitism when a Jewish person makes fun of her? Please.

R373 It wasn't "fuck Trump." She criticized David Hogg for saying the word "fuck" or "fucking" while talking about the Parkland mass shooting the day after the shooting took place. She used all her time in the segment about Parkland to promote the NRA and her friend Dana Loesch and to criticize teenager David Hogg for using the F word, which she said will make people not take him seriously. And yes, she not only was part of a "fuck cancer" campaign, but she had "fuck cancer" in her Twitter bio at tha time and her timeline was full of tweets using the word. (She later claimed that "fuck cancer is 'different' because it's the name of a campaign and because MY FATHER HAD GLIOBLASTOMA!!!)

Of course she doesn't hide her hypocrisy. What I don't understand about Democrats is that they never, ever seem to learn that Republicans and Christians in the U.S. cannot be shamed for hypocrisy. They embrace it. They are proud of it. Yes, they often deny it by diverting the conversation, but their culture is such that they LOVE it when their hypocrisy is pointed out because it means they have successfully riled up their opponents.

Democrats never seem to learn anything. It's so bizarre. Even when they hold power they don't DO anything with it, and I'm not talking about them doing dodgy things like the Republicans would, I mean even use that power to push through good policies.

Jesus, loves Jed, this I know...

Jedidiah was a pain in everyone's ass on Tuesday's program. She and Meghan must have taken lessons in run-on sentences from the same asshole. Once she started on a tirade it lasted through an entire wall-to-wall show segment. I must not have been watching The View much during her tenure because I can't recall how fucking exhausting she was.

On another note, the black chick that was guest hosting the past two days was great.

^Agreed. The guest co-host was the best they’ve had so far. Jed was tiresome.

R379 Tara Setmayer works for the Lincoln Project now, so she is a GQP defector. I also thought she was great and I like how she emphasizes how the GOP manipulates, but I can't really imaging them casting another person whose political positioning is similar to Ana Navarro's without having an active Republican at the table. I'd welcome it but it would break the View mold of having a party loyalist there.

I do not agree. The Republican Party is so fucked up, that having proven CONSERVATIVES is a perfect alternative.

Sorry, no racists and white supremacists need apply.

It's bad enough that they have Trump enablers push their pointless books on the show.

The View has moved beyond Mrs. Domenech spewing her husband's bullet points.

Everyone should keep in mind that Tara (one of the top 5 guest co-hosts of The View) was banned from the show for the last two years directly and specifically by.... Meghan McCain...

So when is Meghan’s turn as former co-host who returns for a day? I hope never.

This was Brian Teta pop culture day, where Whoopi wanted to kill hersef.

Teta’s an asshole.

The podcast interview with Brian Teta is weird and obviously not as candid as the ones with former cohosts. Meghan McCain said many times that Teta was her personal producer in addition to being exec producer of the show, and it's clear that he was her personal cheerleader and he backed her behind the scenes. In the podcast with Whoopi he alludes to the tension McCain brought but they talk around the elephant that has left the room after having worn out her welcome.

And I blame the fact that Meghan McCain is stupid, entitled, and Republican

I don't know whose idea the podcasts was. But, it was a FANTASTIC idea! Maybe because it's just a general curiosity about The View that everyone has or something else. But, I've listened to a few of them and have really enjoyed them. I wonder if M2 will do a podcast? I don't think that she'll ever be invited back as a co-host.

Sorry but I miss her. She brought the crazy. Made the show watchable. I was disappointed her maternity leave fell during the election. It was like watching Howard Beale.
