I don’t even want to pay attention to Meghan McCain. She’s fashioned a high-paying job for herself by screeching “MY FATHER!” on The View every weekday. In addition to bleating about her father, she’s also an apologist for every bonkers Republican and every Republican scheme. I can only watch about 30 seconds of her before I want to rip my ears off. Whoopi Goldberg should get hazard pay for dealing with Meghan every single day. Well, on Monday, Whoopi, Meghan and the rest of The View panel were talking about impeachment stuff and Meghan was two seconds away from shrieking something about her father and Whoopi told her to “stop talking.” I’ve cued it up to that part:
So, that happened. And it was good. And Meghan should have been grateful that Whoopi didn’t say “I told you to shut the f–k up, child” when Meghan was pouting and NOT actually shutting up. I linked to the story because I really didn’t want to cover it earlier this week. Then, yesterday, Meghan McCain stopped pouting long enough to post this:

The reactions to this were absolutely priceless. A few of my favorites:

I've never seen the show, but does the dragon lady talk about her dad a lot?

Anyway, Whoopi and Meghan made up or something, if you can get through this video, god bless you.

I have never watched this show and never will. What’s the point?
Every time I see your name I’m taken back to Fringe lol. It’s a favorite of mine. Yes, like you, I’ve never watched this garbage. Making it through five minutes is impossible. Less tangible pain than listening to president feces, but it’s part of the same swamp.
And yes actually, dragon lady does talk about her dad a lot lol.
Yay Fringe! That’s all I’ve got on this one.
I don’t think Daenerys talks about her father the Mad King a lot? She mostly goes on about people bending the knee lol.
Lol she did.
I kinda hope the dragon would come in and carry this one away.
She reminds me of an old friend with her sour expression and entitled face. She keeps saying this is her job to speak this way. No. Your true job is to be a seat filler for that table because they need a simple minded republican no one will agree with and isn’t intimidating. Your last name and your stupidity got you that job so yeah bitch zip it.
The talking over each other, all nattering at once, cutting each other off and taking too long to say their piece makes it unwatchable for me.
We have a talk show like this in Canada called “The Social” and the hosts all respect each other’s opinions and no one is bat shit crazy. The biggest drama was when one host was talking about hockey culture and stereotyped all hockey boys as jerks. People were calling for her firing.
This is the most Canadian post ever.
The Social is the show with Lainey from Laineygossip, right? Is she the crazy?
It is the show with Lainey! I don’t think any of them are crazy. JESS Allen is the one coming under core for her hockey boy comments.
Yes, that’s the one. But “on air Lainey” is a bit softer than on her site. Less piss and vinegar, more restrained shall we say.
The thing is that she didn’t stereotype anyone. She talked about her own unfortunate experiences and how they shaped her opinion of hockey culture. The unhinged psychos calling her racist against white people for saying hockey was a predominantly white sport were off the charts abusive toward her and the other hosts online. They told Marci Ien, who is a WOC, that she needed to “learn her place” when she said Don Cherry should be fired. They called another host the c word for mentioning his long history of controversies. The people comparing her comments to Don Cherry’s, a man with a long history of misogyny, bigotry and racist comments were fine with his use of “you people” to describe immigrants, but were outraged that she called out toxic hockey culture and white privilege.There is no such thing as racism against white people in a country that is predominantly white. It made me embarrassed to be Canadian.
While I disagree with you on the racism portion, because yes anyone can be racist to anyone based on skin colour, I do agree that Jess Allen was taken to task wrongfully as she spoke about her own personal experiences which I am sure MANY individuals have had.
Ever been on a class trip to the ice rink where the hockey playing males (yes usually white) are skating circles around you, laughing, and trying to make you fall for their own amusement because they’ve had the money and resources to become excellent skaters that others haven’t?
@deezee Yes anyone can be racist to a person of another race.I’m talking about them crying that she was a racist bigot against white boys. White hockey players and their families don’t have a leg to stand on when they cry racism in what she said. Calling out toxicity in a sport that is almost completely dominated by caucasians isn’t racism against white people. They were calling her sexist too. Like white boys and men are just so put upon in Canada. It was insane.
I agree the criticisms against Jess Allen are over the top and made by people who are angry that Don Cherry was fired and want to see her fired, as if it will make up for it. The comments made to Marci are terrible. The point I wanted to make was how less dramatic Canadian talk shows are because the hosts get along and (on the surface) the biggest headline was about hockey. But as you’ve all pointed out, it more than that: racism and sexism also a big issue, both in why Don Cherry was fired but also how some viewers engage with the hosts online.
@Emily Your comment was completely correct about how respectful the hosts of The Social are, compared to The View. I actually truly believe the women on The Social are all friends. They listen to each other and are not dismissive of the other opinions either. The Jess Allen thing has really touched a nerve with me because of my own close ties to hockey. I have two retired and one current NHL player in my extended family.We have an OHL and NHL coach in the family as well. Two of them are the biggest freaking bullies I’ve ever met in my life and their friends are all the same. They are the stereotypical white boy bros in every negative sense possible. Their Mother thinks that they hung the moon and was all over Facebook calling for Jess Allen to be fired. Sorry if it seemed I was responding to you in a negative way.
Did you see Whoopi’s medallion? It was made by a Manitoba woman it represents the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. Apparently Whoopi was in British Colombia for a conference and wandered into another conference, I think the lure of burning sage and sweet grass that attracted her attention and discovered it was an Indigenous people’s meeting and one of the women had a conversation with Whoopi, while they were talking Whoopi noticed her medallion and in the Anishinnabe culture if someone compliments something you have, you gift it to them. The woman explained what it represented..I believe Whoopi mentioned the significance of the medallion on the show, unfortunately she said it represented the women who went missing on the highway of tears it does, but it represents the wider scope of all Missing and Murdered Indigenous women across Canada. I heard she mentioned the missing and murder Indigenous women in America…which is finally beginning to gain some attention.
Thank you for posting this, Rosalie. I did notice the medallion, and love knowing the story behind it.
I’m one of those people who is likely to gift you a thing if you compliment me on it. That’s wonderful that it is the Anishinnabe tradition.
Whoopi isn’t always right (who among us is? Well, except for Prince William, LOL) but she’s ok. Good for her for speaking truth to republicans.
So many of the talk shows here seem to be set up for conflict. It gets tiring.
If you want to see how badly indigenous women are treated by the system in Canada, read “Red River Girl: The Life and Death of Tina Fontaine”. I just finished it and highly recommend.
Wait, how did she get into Columbia again?
Aryan Lannister … lol
If MY FATHER watched 8 minutes, let alone 8 seasons of GoT, I have a island in Wyoming for sell.
I cannot stomach this woman.
I have found myself watching the View every so often, and it’s amazing to me that everyone is able to get along despite their backgrounds EXCEPT Meghan. She is really just there to be the entitled idiot with no actual positions or opinions other than to pretend to have anything to do with John McCain’s legacy and to parrot the most ludicrous Republican positions. She can’t even get through asking a question without becoming personally attacked and offended, let alone answer one.
And now I realize I am someone who can get mad about the view, and am shamed forever.
She’s just there to scream, be ridiculous, play the victim, and get the show press. That’s it.
Trouble is, she truly believes she earned and deserves it.
Her head looks like a potato with too much makeup on. That’s all I got.
Overly made up potato with traction alopecia.
That is very specific. I like it.
Surely there must be one sane rational republican woman pundit they could get for the show?
Her only contribution to the show seems to be shrieking “my father” as “proof” for her argument every time.
Someone mentioned The Social upthread, yes Lainey is on this. Very different show, they discuss current events but they actually listen and have conversations with each other. They agree to disagree at times.
I’ve only seen it a couple times but I don’t think they mention politics in as much depth as the view does. Like I guess they would have talked about Justin Trudeau’s blackface but they probably didnt talk about former opposition leader sheer so much as he’s not interesting and they probably mostly agree not to vote conservative. Canada is just different, there are enough farm and oil (oh and mining and forestry) adjacent people that the conservatives are surviving and could win but they don’t really have a lot of young (the women on the show are older than me but still I think they’re kind of young) and educated fans. It’s not like the US where there are a lot of young people pro trump passionate about abortion etc. I’m sure there are some but not enough that the social would add a conservative young woman to cover that demographic.
There are not as many young MAGAs as it seems.
They are just very loud and very pushy and violent.
There is a sane Republican on the show every Friday Anna Navarro.
I think it’s interesting to watch the dynamic between Ana and Meghan. Ana claims John McCain as a good friend but Ana and Meghan can’t seem to stand each other. Meghan seems almost jealous of Ana.
Abby Huntsman is a republican (daughter of Jon Huntsman, who was gov. of Utah, 2012 presidential candidate and recently ambassador to China and Russia).
Meghan is not the only republican on the show, she just screeches the loudest.
The memes were so funny lol
“Aryan Lannister” DYING LAUGHING!!!!!!!!! Omg this woman needs to use her power for something other than this. I won’t tell her to be quiet, because I can’t stand silencing women, but damn do I wish women like her would speak about something that matters.
“I’m the whitest – I mean, I’m the most discriminated against!”
+1 Layla Beans
++1 to all the comments re The Social! I wish they addressed JT’s blackface though.
The really unfortunate thing about this McCain Mess exchange is that Whoopi didn’t have a chance to talk about the medallion she was wearing. It was made by Sagkeeng First Nation beader Mish Daniels to bring awareness to Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls in Canada. Whoopi obtained it from Connie Greyeyes after they met and she had expressed interest in raising awareness on the same tragic issues in the US.
She does know that Dany ended up as dead war criminal nazi, doesn’t she?
Never liked her she comes off as very entitled. I actually met her In Vegas at a Jazz show. And boy she is a snob, we were sitting at the same table and she never said a hi or nothing to us who were seated there before us. Her husband was nice enough to swap seats with my mom so she could see.
The issue of Meg is that she is belligerent and lacks self control in every aspect of life. She purposely starts shit and plays a victim…it doesn’t matter what the topic is. If they were talking about baby Yoda, she would find a way of saying how she is persecuted for being a conservative. Also, love the fact that the first week on the show she confess to being a rec cannabis smoker, so just how conservative is she? Btw we’re period pals and she goes on these tirades the same time every month when hormones are grabbing her by the Ds…I don’t take what she says seriously at all…she’s a more of a person to pity than be angry at.
Will swap her for Katie Hopkins if you like…we need a fresh air of bigotry here in London.
So she agrees that she is a deluded egomaniac with a warped vision of herself only tied to her family with no real skills ….
I loathe this bitch and her vile, dismissive, sarcastic voice, who sounds absolutely manic when discussing anything political, and utterly childish when discussing everything else.
