    Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    Regarding this exchange: This is the retort I want people on The VIew to use any time Meghan tries to do that "straw man argument". SHe takes something someone actually said, extrapolates it to mean something else, then accuses the person of saying what she made up. I'm not sure about Gabbard yet, but the "putting words in my mouth that I never said" needs to be a standard response to Meghan by both guests and co-hosts every time she does this.

    Meghan understands "comedy in bleak circumstances" like in her life. No, she doesn't have "bleak circumstances". Yes, her father died. Guess what? as our parents become elderly - they die. It's the goddam circle of life, Meghan! Larry Charles is talking about comedy in oppressive regimes - and somehow Meghan relates to that because her father died! WTF?!?!?

    Meghan is wrong. Jussie S is not a sociopath. I do expect that in the upcoming weeks we will hear that he suffers from depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, some sort of addiction or a medication effect.

    Yes, if they could go back to the days when the only "prize" was the engagement at the end, they would get fewer famewhores who only want a shot at another show.
  5. Maybe it's my complete lack of knowledge about brands of cars. But I don't get the Buick commercials. "here's your Buick." "No, THAT'S my Buick!" "That's your car? I thought you had a Buick" "This IS my Buick" OK - so I guess people have an idea of what a Buick looks like, and they're fooled? but why? they show two perfectly acceptable looking cars, and then they have this inane conversation about which one looks like a Buick - but surprise! they're BOTH Buicks! Yeah, they all look like regular cars to me.
  6. I would agree, except that both of my sons bought cars online. Right. give a golden retriever a short haircut, and it looks just like a lab.

    Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    Meghan REALLY needs to watch video of herself on the show. Here's what she will find - She RARELY makes eye contact when asking someone a question. Usually her eyes are down, looking at her blue card. She reads statistics, reads quotes, reads questions. It comes across as impersonal, because she cares more about saying what she wants to say then she does about what the person whom she is interviewing has to say. Imagine going to a job interview, and having the interviewer look at a card while asking you questions. It's rude. The other hosts will look at a card to make sure they get something right, but much of meghan's screen time is taken up with shots of her heavily made-up eyelids and fake lashes. she's a bad fit for a TV show.

    Have they had Tammy Duckworth on? That would be an interesting interview.

    Right. To run in the dem primary, he would have to agree to run and if elected, serve as a Democrat. Meghan and Abby are singing his praises because if Bernie is the nominee, we will have 4 more years of a GOP presidency

    Because Meghan, even though she likes to preach women should support women cannot stand seeing a woman younger and smarter than she us, rise so quickly in the field of politics.

    Yes, someone wrote " me too" on the statue. It started a conversation. It doesnt "destroy " anything. It's just a commentary on how an event can be seen differently through more modern views. There was a time when tv and movies showed men spanking their wives to keep them in line. (I love Lucy,for example). A lot of things that were acceptable or funny in another time are viewed differently now. It doesn't DESTROY anything. Meghan is an idiot.

    Absolutely!. Most of us have gone through deaths of relatives, and either have already or will experience the death of our parents. My mom died a few years ago. Nobody in the family would have ever counted the days she's been gone and posted on facebook TO her. If any of my siblings had done so, I would have expressed concern about their mental well-being. (and made fun behind their back to the other siblings)

    Talking about Jussie Smollett, Meghan says the murder rate in Chicago is the highest it's been in decades, then quotes the 2016 statistics. Except - murder rates actually have gone DOWN in the past two years. The issue she danced around - about crime in Chicago, and the tough time the police have, is much more complicated than her little brain can understand. Yes, the cops have tough jobs. But, there are also numerous incidents of cops being too quick to shoot Black suspects and to conspire to cover up those shootings. Anyway - Jussie Smollett's story was believable until he said his attackers said "this is MAGA country". I don't know where anyone has been that people will say that, but CHICAGO? Not likely.

    Watching now. Meghan going on and on about her hypothetical democratic primary bullshit -it was almost word-for-word what a lot of other conservatives are droning on and on about - Bernie is THE most popular candidate, he could win this state and that state, he would beat Kamala Harris in this other state, blah blah blah.... The republicans have a strategy, they would LOVE Bernie to be the dem candidate, and Meghan (and Abby) are just reiterating the words they were given to say. Meghan has always presented herself as an expert on "trump's base", now she's also an expert on "liberals". And good for Sunny, correcting Abby that the democrats have "gone so far left." NO, what happened is that Meghan and Abby pick the dems who are the most extreme, and insist that they are representative of the democratic party as a whole.
