Mary Trump and Meghan McCain both come from very famous families. McCain, on one hand, has used her family name to get high profile jobs in show business. Trump, on the other hand, has distanced herself from her family as much as possible.
On Tuesday, four Capitol police officers talked about their experiences on January 6th. In their never-ending effort to protect Donald Trump, Conservatives have begun to bash the heroic officers that served that day.
At nearly every turn, Republicans have resisted any attempts to look into the events of January 6th. Things got closer this week when congress looked to convene a panel to investigate the riots.
Kevin McCarthy, though, decided to throw a grenade into the investigation by placing Trump sycophants Jim Banks and Jim Jordan on the panel. Nancy Pelosi had no choice but to veto the selections causing McCarthy to pull all of his appointees.
At one point, Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly were, unquestionably, the two biggest names in cable news. Both personalities, though, have had a stunning fall from grace.
Kelly moved over to ABC via a megadeal, but left the network after she defended blackface live on air. She was last seen on Twitter trolling tennis champion Naomi Osaka.
It has only been a few weeks since Meghan McCain left The View. But while the show doesn’t currently have Conservative talking head doesn’t mean that they’re not talking about political issues.
Being the token Conservative on a topical program isn’t easy. And the job became that much harder in the age of Donald Trump. And while Meghan McCain is not a Trump fan, she is a dyed in the wool Conservative, so she often found herself at odds with her co-hosts.
Thus far, Joe Biden has received high marks from the press for his recent foreign trip. On Wednesday, though, he did get into a testy exchange with CNN‘s Kaitlin Collins.
And the right-wing media has seized on that moment to allude to the entire trip as a disaster. This was the take Meghan McCain took during Thursday’s episode of The View.
Republican lawmakers and those in Conservative media are often quick to criticize Democrats. They often do so, however, without thinking about what people on their own side are doing.
On Monday, for example, a group of GOP congresspeople called for the members of “The Squad” to be censured over comments on Israel. At the same time, Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz is still sitting on the House Judiciary Committee despite being under federal investigation.
Donald Trump gave one of his highest profile speeches since leaving the White House over the weekend. There wasn’t much new material as the former president complained about Democrats and Republicans who are against him.
Meghan McCain acts as the Conservative talking head on The View and it’s not an easy job. She frequently finds herself clashing with all of the show’s panelists and sometimes with the audience.
If the last 5 years showed us anything, it is that Republicans are willing to defend basically any action. How else could you have Donald Trump as your party’s standard bearer.
The investigation into Matt Gaetz, though, has been a good test for the GOP. The lunatics in the party, like Marjorie Taylor Greene and Jim Jordan defended him. Most others, however, have stayed silent on the matter.
Over the last four years, Meghan McCain has frequently been happy to criticize Donald Trump. The former president was not kind to her family, going as far as saying her father John McCain wasn’t a hero “because he got caught.”
Meghan McCain‘s father John McCain was one of the most revered Republicans of his day. He was often referred to as a Maverick due to his willingness to buck the party line.
Liz Cheney attempted to be a post-Trump maverick back in January of this year. And for voting her conscience, she has been pilloried by the Republican party.
Meghan McCain might not be a Fox or OAN anchor, but she is well versed in their talking points. And each day on The View she regurgitates the same kind of things you hear on Fox & Friends or Tucker Carlson.
On Monday, the hosts of The View addressed both the Derek Chauvin trial and recent comments by Maxine Waters. The California congresswoman said that if the officer was acquitted, protesters need to, “make sure they know that we mean busines.”
There are plenty of Republicans who love Donald Trump and always want him to be a part of their party. Then there are other Republicans who absolutely despise him and have done everything in their power to stop him.
Every year on Martin Luther King Day, thousands of people post tributes to the civil rights leader on their social media accounts. This includes many people in the Republican Party.
The ever oblivious Ivanka Trump posted a tribute to MLK this morning. Just days after trying to eliminate the votes of millions of African Americans, Ted Cruz wrote, “Now more than ever, we are reminded of the power of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s words, calling on all of us to have ‘the courage to face the uncertainties of the future,’ ‘as we continue our forward stride toward the city of freedom.”
From the day she took office in January of 2019 , New York Attorney General Letitia James put a target on Donald Trump’s back. None of the questionable actions he took as a New York City businessman would go un-investigated.
For a number of years, Donald Trump has been taking shots at former Republican Senator John McCain. From saying he “likes people who weren’t captured” to claiming that he deserves a thank you for McCain’s funeral, the president has always been happy to take a shot at the GOP legend.
Meghan McCain’s role on The View is not exactly a simple one. She is tasked with giving a Conservative take while surrounded by largely Liberal hosts and the audience tends to skew Democratic as well.
