Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

Recommended Posts

16 minutes ago, maggiemae said:

I saw Colbert and I felt very uneasy about MM. She seems to have multiple personalities

Talking about her wedding - first she said nobody got drunk at the reception, which she was happy about.  then, a minute or two later, she said that she wanted her wedding to be a big drunk party with a lot of whiskey and bison.   ??

She also does this weird thing where she "puts on"  an country, relaxed" persona, indicated by talking out of the side of her mouth.   She did the same thing on The View, when she was talking about the guys she met wearing MAGA hats. 

Most times, she seems really uptight and brittle, then tries to be this "country gal" character who doesn't care about girly stuff or fancy eatin'.  Her face and speech change when she breaks into that character.  It's like she's doing an ad for that farmers only dating site, "city folk just don't get it."

Oy vey, the shoulder pads on that red suit! 

And it was tight enough to see where her her spanx ended and her waist rolls began.  

Sooooo, why was MM on Colbert????

Because she's on the View?  To give an update on her dad?  Talk about her wedding?  Drop political names?  Okayyyyy. 

She is nobody of any import. 

What can she talk about otherwise?  Or if she's ever on another talk show again?  Nada.

OMG - I didn't think it was too bad until I looked at the clips and saw her walking out in that.  You just CAN'T wear skin-tight if you're a little chunky.  Her hair was OK, but I still wish she would go less blond.  I couldn't take the interview - I'm sure she said nothing of interest whatsoever.

Yes - there are other shades of blonde, you don't have to be "Crayola yellow."

My thoughts exactly! She doesn’t have a book to plug/promote and had nothing of value to contribute. Just talked about how she revealed the first time she had sex on his old show and now talking about it on his new show. And a lotta lying.

So, MM talked about sex the first time that she was on Colbert and then REPEATED  the story this time, like it was so entertaining. So, next time that MM's on Colbert (whatever for?), she can threepeat it again?  You're 33 years old. Get some relevant life experiences of your own (not Daddy or Mommy or brother Marine),  or new material. 

Then, she reiterated her tired, fake spiel of being a tough girl...not a snowflake....blech...even though we all know that she is the above, and less. Much, much less. 

This from someone who cries and pouts when others --the panel or audience or guests --ignore her, move on without commenting on her Faux talking points, applaud for the opposite view, and generally already know what she's selling, er, I mean educationg us on (Drumpf's base), cuz we're sane and don't care.   MM  does not answer direct questions because she's not smart or informed or prepared enough to do so.   Tough cookie, my ass. 

She is hate-full though for any opposing viewpoint and mean as a spitting snake to the opposition. It's not pretty, nor will it gain her any traction for future guests. Or jobs, I hope, which she seems to be "hustlin" for, before Daddy passes on. 

I seem to keep posting the same observations about MM here on line, and should just copy and paste my posts in the future.  I am tired of her being a waste of space and airtime with her ignorant presence.

If you are tough you don't have to tell people you are.  Her country girl 'performance' includes a distain for the Oscar nominated movies!  "Oh I don't know about those,  I liked I Tonya."   Her tone was dismissive as if the others were too high brow for her image? Not fitting for a Republican?  Who knows.

I ??? and ???? when she said she had a cold dark heart with respect to her not letting things get to her or how she hardly ever or never cries. Because that’s all she does on this show when the other hosts challenge her or don’t agree with her. Not to mention whenever she mentions or talks about her dad or when she’s whining about “how HAAAAARD!” It is being on this show and people = the audience won’t buy  listen to her “explain.”

She does have a cold dark heart, based on what she has said, about minorities, Dreamers, DACA, and women’s rights over their bodies.

That dress she wore did her no favors.

WHY is she going to be on Van Jones???  She offers nothing!

Maybe she's job hunting? I mean, she claimed to be a "political "commentator"" and that CBS article dubbed her a pundit after that podcast, where she "claimed" she spoke with 45, who "assured her" that he wouldn't go after her Daddy. And so now all of a sudden, so many want her on their show? UGH.

I wonder if the View agreed to keep MM for  6 months so she could pad her resume.  

It's been 4 1/2 months, so maybe we'll get an early Easter basket of chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks, candy eggs, and Ana.

Are we allowed to say that I saw a promo for Van Jones who will have MM on and touted her even handed approach to politics and new ideas.  Does he watch The View?  Makes me wonder if they hired her to play a part.  Jenny McCarthy said she was hired to be one way and then when she was, Barbara and Bill told her she had to be another way.

How did they want Jenny McCarthy to be?  She never spoke about her theory about vaccinations. Plus, her friendship with Sherry was so fake.. Sherry tried to act like they were best friends..

I remember her saying on her radio show that they hired her to be zany and off beat and then they told her to tone it down. But I just googled and asked why she left the view and. Her quotes were a bit different. So I guess we really don’t know.

What I don't understand is why ABC--or any company/channel for that matter--would continue to employ someone who discredits the integrity of their employer by accusing them of being a peddler of fake news, who daily insults the live audience of the show she co-hosts, and who openly and purposely antagonizes a fellow employee who the company had previously bribed back to save their floundering show (Behar)? And all of that had already happened within 4 months of her starting date! What a privileged world she lives in where that kind of behavior on the job goes unpunished.

I don’t understand it either. The only possible reason I can think of is that they’re trying to create some Jerry Springer-type drama. I mean, Meggy did say on her very first day that her and Joy would never agree on anything and that she wanted to be the next Bitsy. Going after Joy, as we have all witnessed, is only making her look more and more like a fool so I say keep it up, Meggy.

She also wears things that are very unflattering to her figure. That’s not me taking a stab at her body as I’m not a skinny gal myself but she should maybe find a different stylist because these outfits do her no justice. There are times when she looks cute on The View.

Yeah, MM'S not the  typical conservative that she staunchly defends, plus I was thinking that because she's a woman--and a relatively young one-- that the old timers, i.e., old white men,  would not get on board.

She's not her dad--by a longgggggggggggggggggggggg shot.

It probably helps with the ratings on the show. I admit that sometimes I tune in to see what dumb things Meghan is going to spout off. I'm not proud of that fact. :(   She may just cross the line one of these days, and the other hosts may want her gone. I suspect that Joy has a lot of clout with the producers, so maybe she will instigate Meghan's removal.

I can see Joy freezing her out behind the scenes like she did with Elizabeth. She will treat her with respect  on the show.  At the end of the day, Joy has more staying power than Megan.  I notice that Megan never goes after Whoopie like she does with Joy.   Whoopie is a liberal like Joy.   Sunny and Sarah lean  liberal as well.  So, what is her problem with Joy.  I cant stand Megan and she gets worst everyday..

No, MM won't go after Whoopi because Whoopi has ALOT of friends--celebrities and politicians (albeit liberal mostly )who revere her--plus she is Black and MM biting at Whoopi's heels would comfirm the alleged Republican racism. 

Sunny is also a person of color and wayyyyyy too smart for MM to pull that BS on. Sarah is too nice, and besides neither she nor Sunny have the name recognition of Joy. 

Joy is also too smart and witty, but this dumbell MM thinks she can vy equally with her, which is a big fucking joke. MM spews nonsense word salad and Joy responds with logical, specific reasons for her own calm statements.  MM huffs and puffs, rolls her eyes, drinks her tea, and squints side-eyed at the audience in frustration. Annoying at the very least. Joy's got nothing to worry about.

Discount her in what way? Megan is in Joy's house...She is a visitor  who has worn out her welcome. I am sure that we are not the only ones who realize how awful she is...She is out of her depth. She needs to go back to Foxnews and talk about how liberals are the scum of the earth...There, no one will challenge her and they can bask in their awesomeness, as conservatives..

Meghan is trying to make a name for herself.   I don't frequent conservative sites so i don't know what the right thinks of her.  But I'm sure in her mind she thinks if she took down Joy it would put her on the map.  Just like the split screen did for Elisabeth.   The right hated Rosie and after that suddenly EH was a household name.

Agree. And in the comments of that tweet she posted, she was dragged for her behavior yesterday, despite her fans who luuurve her and that hideous dress.

I discount her because she has proven herself to be an uninformed ignorant fool. As was proven by herself by the BIG words she threw out, clearly with no understanding of their meaning, but because she probably thought they made her sound smart/intelligent.

VJ continued....She is wearing a very unfortunate dress.  She is intimidated by all of the photos on set.  She says she hasn't been on CNN in years, years.  He says the country doesn't deserve her because she is a principled conservative, rooted in the best of her party.  He says she continues to try and reach out and make connections and then asks the audience to give her another round of applause.  Oh, Elsa, you are in your happy place now.  She gets misty eyed but goes right into how easy it is to get cynical and jaded.  She thanks him for the tongue bath.

They talk about her dad's cancer.

VJ shows the clip of the crazy lady at the town hall who says she can't trust Obama because he is an Arab.  She talks about how her dad was being encouraged to go down the Obama is a Muslim and Jeremiah Wright road.  VJ wants to know where that courage to do the principled thing has gone and she says it doesn't win elections.  She says some stuff about having cancer and being President, and not having that burden, and something about Trump, it was a bit of a word salad and I didn't bother rewinding.

Elsa says her dad encouraged her to take risks and get out of the echo chamber, he believes they are too insulated and "tribal".  She got the call to be on The View, she said no, and he told her to say yes, to working with Whoopi, to being the one Repub.  Then she apologizes for blathering on.  Van wants to know if her dad gave her bad advice. He said the View is like rock 'em sock 'em robots.  He asks her how it feels when they are basically implying she is a racist, and sometimes the audience is mean.  Clearly this came from pre discussions with his producers.  She says it is not pleasant, and the audience is mostly liberal, but then says it is a privilege to be on the show, and talks about Whoopi and Joy as legends.  She says it is challenging to learn how to speak to the most extreme liberals she has ever met in her life (oh, FFS, really?).

This stood out to me as well. The fact that her father was the one who encouraged her to get out of the echo chamber that is Fox shows what a difference in open-mindedness there is between the two. We all know why she initially said no: she’s intimidated by those who challenge her political beliefs and it shows everyday on The View. Being around people who agree with her all the time is where she’s most comfortable.

Unsurprisingly, there really wasn’t much substance during his entire interview with her.

Elsa is in a happy environment with Van, but she still looks tense and somewhat flustered, but not strident and angry, as we usually see her.

He asks her, what do liberals get wrong?  She says she wasn't a huge Trump supporter for obvi reasons, but decided on election day that she was going to be unemotional in analyzing his presidency, cause she is a political commentator, dontcha know!  She says she doesn't suffer from Trump derangement syndrome, in that she can separate the man from the White House.  Really, Elsa.  Please explain.  She says she has never been accused of being racist before, until recently, until Trump became President.  She then goes on to say she has vivid memories of her father being called racist, of Bush, of Romney, of Jeb being called racist.  Van asks her if "we" are overdoing that charge, and she says it does a disservice to "real racism".  Five people clap, and she immediately says thank you.  Hah!  She says she doesn't think it should be thrown around, and that it hurts her when she and the Repub party are being called racists.  Hey, Joy, this is all about you!  You sure got under Elsa's skin.  Then she quoted Jon Stewart to back her up.  She wants people to stop throwing around horrible allegations, and she says she is also guilty of this.  What?  TBC

The country doesn't deserve her, but not for whatever he blathered on about.  I cannot believe that he had her as a guest and that he sucked up like that.  I wonder what the story is behind that!  

She is not well-spoken & it's really difficult to figure out what her point is, or even if she has one.  She may just be enchanted by her valley girl voice.

Van moves the topic to immigration, and mentions that conservatives have said some racist things, and asks her what conservatives could learn to do better.  She wonders why DACA cannot get approved since it has bipartisan approval. Hey, Elsa, maybe you are not a political commentator if you cannot figure that one out.  She talks about her dad being the gang of eight and being smeared with racial protests.  She uses the word tribal again.  She then quotes Ann Coulter (she is covering all bases) saying Trump could perform an abortion in the WH as long as he stands firm on immigration.  And here is my fave moment:  she says, "for whatever reason, it really gins up the base, hard line, build the wall, Mexicans are rapists and criminals".  Oh my, and she doesn't get why people think Repubs are racist?  TBC
