Meghan McCain blames Barack Obama for the ‘culture war’ & Trump presidency

The Prince's Trust Awards, The London Palladium, UK

If you can watch The View for more than two consecutive minutes, bless your heart. I cannot. I don’t even mind Whoopi Goldberg (she’s said problematic things, but whatever, I can still listen to her) or Joy Behar (same), but the combination of the group of women all talking over each other just leaves me cold. Add Meghan McCain’s simpering white supremacist routine and I’m out. I have no idea how Mike Redmond at Pajiba can even write all of those Meghan McCain stories, but he’s doing God’s work because she sucks and it’s good to remind people of that daily. So what’s new? Meghan McCain just did a “thanks Obama” for Donald Trump’s disastrous presidency. Meaning, McCain hated Barack Obama’s commencement speech and it just reminded her that Obama CREATED the “culture war” between the GOP and Democrats.

The hosts of The View loved former President Barack Obama’s subtle dig at his successor in this weekend’s virtual commencement speech. Well, all of the hosts except for one, of course.

“More than anything, this pandemic has fully, finally torn back the curtain on the idea that so many of the folks in charge know what they’re doing. A lot of them aren’t even pretending to be in charge,” Obama told graduates in his video address. “If the world’s going to get better, it’s going to be up to you.” In response, President Trump called Obama “incompetent.”

“I’m giddy about this,” Joy Behar said Monday morning. “I’m really looking forward to watching the brilliant law professor take on the quasi-literate reality show host. This is going to be good!” Sunny Hostin said Obama’s speech took her back to a time when the president was “compassionate and empathetic and reassuring and funny, intelligent, honest, curious.”

Then it was Meghan McCain’s turn. “I don’t have a lot to say about this,” she said, before accusing the left of making Obama into “nothing short of a saint.” McCain said she “obviously feels different, as most Republicans and conservatives do. The culture war that I believe is real, and is raging in this country, I believe was ushered in with his administration,” she said of Obama, “and then exacerbated in the Trump administration.”

In order to prevent Trump’s re-election, McCain said, “We have to start talking to each other in the middle, and we have to start talking about the faults on both sides, because he was not a perfect president. And I don’t think a perfect president would have ushered in the era of Trump.”

For her part, moderator Whoopi Goldberg said she doesn’t believe any president, including Obama, is “perfect.” But that doesn’t make him the equivalent of Trump.

“Listen, this man has been battered by this particular guy in the White House for almost five years,” Goldberg said, alluding to Trump’s birther attacks on Obama. “He’s been called incompetent, not an American citizen, so the fact that Obama has said something is great.”

[From The Daily Beast]

Just consider all of the mental hoops she had to jump through to blame it all on the black president. Obama ushered in the culture war, because he was black and Republicans were butthurt about it and that’s why it’s all his fault! And if Obama had been a better president, then Trump wouldn’t have fake-won, people! That is some sh-t. Personally, and for what it’s worth, I’ve always believed that Obama was the “reason” why Trump “won” too. It’s not Obama’s fault that he’s a brilliant, erudite, compassionate, unscandalous gentleman who happens to be black. But the sheer fact of “eight years of Obama” meant that all the worst white people were mad and they decided to vote en masse for the worst white man they could find. Now those terrible people don’t like it when a mirror is being held up to their white supremacist faces.

I only got about 30 seconds into it, but enjoy:

    That “culture war” was ushered in during the Obama presidency. Not by Obama. By racists who revealed themselves in alarming numbers in response to his election. Now they’ve been empowered by Trump, and here we are.

    • Agirlandherdog says:

      Thank you. My mind was just spinning with all these thoughts, and I was trying to figure out how to coalesce them into something coherent. But you did it for me.

    • osito says:

      This all day. Of all the victims blaming nonsense…

      I have European friends who ask all the time, “How could you…? What happened…?” And I know they don’t mean me personally, as a WoC and a progressive liberal, but even when I explain that the current state of affairs is a reaction to or effect of a number of things, but chiefly racism and misogyny, they reply with disbelief that *we* let this happen as a collective. And honestly, I get it. I feel it, too. And some days I am paralyzed with terror that “we” will let it happen again.

      • Allie says:

        I get why white supremacists and other racist idiots vote for Republican candidates. What I really do not understand – to this day – is why PoC would vote red and Trump in particular. It’s similar to women voting for their health care choices being taken away or poor people rejecting health insurance for all. It just does not make sense.

      • Alisha says:

        @Allie – speaking as a POC with some conservative relatives who voted for him and other GOP, it is because they (my relatives, not speaking for everyone as a whole) believe republicans are better for the economy as well as that side of my family is extremely devout catholic/conservative so tend to consistently vote single issue for a pro life platform. They do not care about things like the wall or the detention camps or the racism, they live up north and feel far removed from it and do not believe those things apply to them. I have had talks with one uncle that I used to be very close with and he is adamant that his business is thriving under Trump, he even said he does not care for him as a person or for how he conducts himself but at the end of the day, he prefers the conservative platform. He is not the only person in their community that feels this way. It is sad.

      • osito says:

        @Allie & @Alisha — I’m in the same boat with a couple of (too close for my comfort) family members. They, too, are super conservative Christians (they used to be *pentacostal*…😬), who are either retired or close to it, and seem to care only for their guns, the overturning of Roe v Wade, and their stock options. There’s also a bit of anti-black racism sprinkled in there (non-black PoC), and some internalized racism as well (not refugees, but absolutely *zero* empathy for the refugee or immigrant experience unless “they do it the right way”.)

        They also kind of get off on being the “rebels” of their respective families because most of the rest of us are on the progressive spectrum (from libertarian to liberal), though they live in a predominantly conservative part of the state (so they’re really rebelling against…nothing? I mean, they pick political fights at gatherings sometimes, but we’ve all learned not to take the bait. Does nothing, gets us nowhere, makes them feel like they won even though they get trounced every👏🏽time👏🏽.)

        It’s jarring to say the least because they profess to really love us (and me *specifically*), but as a black person, I see all their BS like there’s a spotlight shining on it and nothing else. I believe that they’re allowed their traumatized, brainwashed, undereducated, reactionary nonsensical belief systems, but it’s like a labyrinthine nightmare to try to understand it. My sense of it, when I’m feeling empathetic, is that they experienced a kind of racist abuse — which persisted in their area longer than it did in other parts of the country — that sometimes causes people to believe that they are safer aligning themselves with their abusers than with the rest of the oppressed and marginalized community at large. They falsely believe that they have earned a seat at the table, and that their oppressors really have their best interests at heart because they’re “good” ones, and they’ve proven it. It’s weird, there’s more, it’s complicated, but it’s also overwhelming to think about for too long. I know that they sincerely think they love me, and I appreciate that about them. But I think their shared history of trauma has led to a kind of narcissism that stops them from really loving anyone.

    • Aang says:

      And it’s not just his race, that’s the majority but not all in my opinion. It’s also the fact that he didn’t try to hide his obvious intelligence and class behind a folksy facade. He is everything they hate from his speech, to his manners, to his food choices. He is also openly compassionate and empathetic, in their eyes that means weak. He’s the definition of “liberal elite” in their eyes.

    • Esmom says:

      This “culture war Obama created and fomented” has been a right wing narrative for so long. I honestly have no idea how to counter it. People are so knee-jerk angry about his very existence and it baffles me to no end.

      • MattyLove says:

        Yeah, Obama DID start that “culture war.” By being black. That’s it. An entire, ignorant, disgusting segment of the population didn’t care to see or consider anything beyond that fact. Obama was not the problem. We unfortunately just didn’t deserve him.

      • Esmom says:

        I absolutely get that. But what’s frustrating to me is that there seems no effective way to respond when people shriek about him being “divisive” and insist that their own racism isn’t the reason. I guess it’s not much different than people insisting Trump is doing a great job. Alternate universe.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      yup. he dared to exist as a black man who got elected to the WH.

      THAT’S IT. that’s what their outrage is about and has always been about. him not “knowing his place”.

    • pottymouth pup says:

      Well, in all fairness, the audacity of Obama presidenting while black *forced* all those nice, white, conservative Christians, to up the ante on their cultural war. It was hard enough for them to endure increased minority representation, especially as anything other than the dregs of society or in an appropriate subservient role to god-fearing white folks but it was truly unforgivable for Obama to go back in time to fake being born in Hawaii and lord knows what else to usurp a role that should only be played by a white, “Christian” man. This was especially hard for the conservative white folks as they are still smarting from “the blacks” rejecting slavery and re-writing history to make it seems like slavery was anything less than an act of altruism by good, white Christian saviors who gave them jobs that came with rent-free homes.

      /sarc (just in case it’s not obvious)

    • Annaloo. says:

      THIS!!! Thank you!! President Obama spoke to Black and minority pain, and whites could not handle it! They still can’t handle it: see Megan McCain!

      And Ms McCain if you bring up your sister, let’s take a look at your circle of friends- the people you actually choose to bring into your life, and maybe I am too cynical, but I will bet you my house she doesn’t have one person of color in her inner circle.

    • Wit of the Staircase says:

      Sorry ladies. The culture wars did NOT begin during the Obama administration. It has been building since the late 1970’s when “family values” and “Moral Majority” were coined to help Ronald Reagan get elected. Both were coded language for white, Christian voters turned off by progressive policies. “Mrs. America” on Showtime does a great job showing how the seeds of the culture wars were sown by Phyllis Schlafly and the Eagle Forum as they successfully derailed the Equal Rights Amendment. The GOP super-glued this new voting bloc to its hip, and with the help of Fox News and the right-wing echo chamber created the juggernaut that delivered Trump to the White House. Was Obama the last straw? Perhaps. But today’s shit show is the result of 40 years of deliberate political agitating organized by the white Christian right-wing.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Didn’t Regan give a speech about “welfare queens” and “young bucks” (aka black men) that mooch off the system?

        The culture war has been brewing for decades now, but I do think that Obama’s election made racist people freak out. He was held to a completely different standard than all other presidents.

  2. Snappyfish says:

    She hates him because he beat her father…badly. However her father wanted Obama to speak at his funeral & banned Trump’s attendance. She should follow her father’s attempt in his final request & stop spewing & encouraging racist BS.

    • Esmom says:

      I don’t know if that’s the reason. I tend to think she’s just perpetuating the usual right wing BS about Obama. I remember the 08 campaign so vividly. McCain was really phoning it in towards the end. Losing must have been hard, but I also tend to think it was a relief.

      • Darla says:

        I kind of think Meghan is like most married white women – she married a far right wingnut and so she’s mouths his opinions. If she had married a leftist, she would be out there saying we need Bernie Sanders. A moderate, she’s be all for Biden. White women, once they marry really strongly tend to take on their husband’s political opinions. I really don’t know why. It didn’t happen to me.

      • minx says:

        I’m loving how terrible she looks in those pictures. Too much contouring, trying to shade the lower part of her face to look slimmer.

    • KellyRyan says:

      Good point. McCain went down in flames because of both Palin and his own extremism. Meghan is rarely reasonable.

    • holly hobby says:

      Exactly! I wish there was a little more of John in her. Cindy seems more openminded too. So what happened to her?

  3. Sean says:

    I may be in a very salty mood today but I hate Meghan “My Father” McCain. Why did she become a thing? So what if her father was John McCain? She’d done nothing of note and is no insightful. She’s one of those “white-entitled privilege personified” types. And I’m white.

  4. Erinn says:

    Well of course. I mean, it’s been what, MAYBE 2-3 generations since we had segregated schools? So of course all the racist trash are going to blame the highly educated, empathetic black man for starting a culture war. I mean, how dare he president while black. That’s a position for white folks, maybe even the really stupid ones who are known for reality shows and not for doing anything remotely good for the world. So yes, the culture war started because a black man dared to win the presidency. It set off all the lunatics, and they went out and got their ‘revenge’ by hitching their horse to the Trump cart.

    The Meghan McCain’s of the world know exactly what they’re saying and doing. She’s shown her hand too many times.

    • lucy2 says:

      And saying it publicly!
      I’m not Southern, but this feels like a very “bless her heart” kind of moment. Except her husband is a right wing extremist who spreads dangerous lies and ideas, and she’s cool with that, so I’ll revert back to my Northeast roots and change it to STFU Meghan.

  6. emmy says:

    It’s a bit rich that this one talks about coming together in the middle when she has previously shrieked about Democrats being “the party of infanticide” and called herself “tribal”. STFU. She was sitting at that table for months, demanding that Democrats convince her to vote for their nominee. She basically wanted to be courted. By a nominee who moves so far to her side that they were only Democrat on paper. What a narcissistic Karen. Party over country any day for this one. But it’s easy to sit out Trump if you’re white and rich.

    Her approach to politics is anything but patriotic and her fetishizing the flag and the military doesn’t change that.

  7. Mac says:

    Did she forget about Sarah Palin? She was the first national candidate to speak in gibberish and tell outlandish and easily provable lies while the media treated her like she was legit and all was normal. Trump would not exist were it not for the mess McCain and the useful idiots in the press made.

    • Esmom says:

      Yes. I 100% remember Sarah Palin’s first hateful, snarky speech as the VP pick as the beginning of this latest era of proud ignorance and defiant disinformation.

    • Mumbles says:

      EXACTLY. Palin was the precursor to Trump. Ignorant and fomenting a false sense of grievances and victimization among people who’ve been on the winning side of most of the equation (not talking about poor people, talking about comfortable suburban white people like those who threaten to riot if their gym is still closed because of the pandemic.)

      There are things the Obama administration could have done better, like all administrations. Hindsight is 20/20. But to blame this disaster on Obama when the GOP has been fomenting victimization and ignorance and resentment for decades is laughable. Especially when Daddy picked and amplified the poster child of that anger as his running mate. And the same goes to his former aides who now make careers wringing their hands about it on cable news.

    • lucy2 says:

      Excellent point.
      I’ll take it back even further, and point to Newt Gingrich and his ridiculous “the GOP is the part of family values” hypocrisy.

      • Darla says:


        And i think you can probably trace the culture war back to Nixon. I seemed to come away with that impression from Nixonland, this great book i read quite some time ago now. Certainly W Bush employed a culture war, along with his pos Karl Rove.

    • Eugh says:

      Yep, came here just to say it’s actually her father’s fault.

  8. TheOtherSarah says:

    I want to say she is white mediocrity personified, but frankly that would be insulting to all the mediocre white people out there.
    So I’ll just say that she should remember that her dying dad personally asked President Obama to speak at his funeral.

  9. Leah says:

    Obama is over three years gone now so how much longer are they going to blame him for the current problems we are now having. What a bunch of clowns. As for McCain, she needs to sit down.

    • Megs says:

      THIS. It has been 3 years with the GOP controlling things and yet they still have the audacity to blame the guy in charge 3. Years. Ago.

  10. Flamingo says:

    Y’all I hate those stupid knot headbands that everyone keeps wearing. They look like a unicorn horn. I don’t know if it’s a southern thing or an everywhere thing, but every time I go to Publix, I see 30 women pushing carts with those goofy $100 headbands on their heads.

    • Darla says:

      Really?! Wow. I hate them too. I haven’t seen them around here. I’m in NY.

      • Lauren says:

        They wear the $100 ones by Eugenia Kim lol. So basic. Also, is it just me or does it look like she has a 5 o’clock shadow?

  11. grabbyhands says:

    Because remember kids, there’s no crime a white man can commit that can’t somehow be blamed on the black man who hasn’t even in office for almost four years!!

    God I hate this woman. 45 had made every single aspect of life worse for almost everyone in this country except the wealthy, he flouts laws on a regular basis, aided by his cronies, he’s made the country a laughingstock the world over and tanked our standing and credibility and pretty much every day ignores the death toll of a pandemic that he helped make worse here in the US and STILL most of her vitriol is saved for Obama.

    They need to kick her ass off this show NOW. No one needs this and the only people asking for it are on Fox News – she should ask for a job over there. Of course, I’m not sure her constant “MUH FATHER!!” refrain will be as accepted considering the hatchet job 45 did on him, but still. Do the airwaves a favor.

  12. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    She needs to meet Locke.

    ‘…Have you got something to say? You’re nothing without your daddy, and your daddy ain’t here. Never forget that. Here, this should help you remember!” And just like that nobody has to endure her ridiculousness ever again.

  13. Daisyfly says:

    He created the culture war by existing. Damn him for existing. If only he didn’t exist then there would be no such thing as culture or wars, much less a culture war.

  14. Wilma says:

    These people just make me explode with rage. How can you be so callous and stupid? How can maintaining the status quo of white supremacy, patriarchy and capitalism make you this blind? I just don’t know how you guys in the US live with this and not punch people all day.

    • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

      It’s become a real chore. And not only that, I still have a kid at home, so I have to point shit out you know? If I don’t say anything and simply ignore, that might be worse. Granted I ignore and shake my head in disgust every single day, but he has to hear me calmly converse about what it means to be on the right side of history. How cyclical oppression is real, and how this administration has catapulted it to new levels becoming a beacon for social and civil destruction. But I have to talk about this shit in a way that’s inclusive. And the opposite of high-minded or high-brow. My head’s spinning just typing this!

      • Alarmjaguar says:

        You are doing a better job than me – I feel like I’m constantly sputtering and flailing around trying to express how outraged I am by this administration. I need to take some deep breaths.

    • Sparkle says:

      I am in a very red area. I can assure it is disgusting who reveals themselves as bigots in my area. Colleagues, clients etc have all shown their true colors and it is disgusting. I resist by helping a local non profit with a righteous mission helping low income people. I resist by educating myself, by being aware of the signs and symptoms of white supremacists around me and denouncing racist thinking. By pointing out to the hyprocrisy of folks that spew this crap like Megan, these ReOpen America! freaks who think breaking the law and endangering the health of others to feed their families makes them a “patriot” but crossing a border for a better life for your children is criminal and gets you put in a cage, that rich people who for the first time feel the pressure of financial struggle scream their rights are being infringed on yet they are the people who elected politicians who have largely ignored the millions of Americans that have lived paycheck to paycheck for years as the middle class as been eroded and have criminlized poverty…i will not keep my mouth shut about the inequalities in our country anymore!

  15. MellyMel says:

    Yes, it’s Obama’s fault he is black y’all! It’s also his fault that the racists lost it cause he had the nerve to be the President & have all that power! Totally his fault!! *eye roll*

    Obama truly lives in their heads rent-free. Ms. “My Father” needs to hush! And she needs to remember her own FATHER wanted Obama to speak at his funeral, so ponder that ma’am.

  16. Lightpurple says:

    First of all, the United States has been in a culture war since its inception at a time when rich white Protestant people imported and owned black people for forced labor, kept poor white trash people as indentured servants to oversee them, and viewed the brown/red skinned people who were here first as heathen savages who needed to be destroyed. Meghan somehow missed that there was a Civil War over those first two and genocide over the third. Obama caused none of that.

    Our first immigration laws were created because of those rich white Protestants needed labor to work in their factories and build their railways but didn’t want the “culture” those Irish Catholic factory workers and Chinese railroad builders might bring with them. Obama didn’t do that either.

    Obama didn’t form the John Birch Society, the KKK, or Aryan Nation. Obama’s not the reason people wearing Nazi arm patches marched through the Jewish neighborhoods of Skokie. Obama didn’t blow up a church to kill five little girls or lynch Medger Evans. Obama didn’t arrest Rosa Parks. Obama isn’t the reason Martin Luther King held marches for voting rights but he is the result. Obama didn’t cause the Stonewall riots and he wasn’t the plaintiff in Brown v Board of Education, Griswold v Connecticut, or Roe v Wade.

    The Culture Wars have been with us since the start. The current lines of battle were drawn not by President Obama but President Reagan with his portrayal of the needy as “black welfare queens.” President Bush I expanded it to include Muslims and his son added to that. Newt Gingrich dug the trenches deeper with “family values” and the “Contract with America” that portrayed poor black women with kids and brown immigrants as the enemy, along with gays. Obama won a battle and held the fort for 8 years, Meghan. Don’t blame him for the wars your views started.

    • Esmom says:

      Well said, Lightpurple. Now if you could get through to her/them we might actually get somewhere. Sigh.

    • Darla says:

      Welp. There you have it. Great post.

    • Purplehazeforever says:

      Well said.

    • Imogene says:

      Well, damn. Yes. Yes to all of that.

    • Alarmjaguar says:

      Yep, and plenty of white ladies have been supporting all this from the beginning, too, owning slaves, joining the Daughters of the Confederacy and the Klan, working as anti-suffragists (esp in the south where they were terrified that might include black women) and doing the grassroots work of the conservatives throughout the 20th century, and now, Megan “My Father” McCain. Don’t let them off the hook

    • NA says:

      Preach Lightpurple! But that’s way too much truth for those out there who have an agenda.

  17. Veronica S. says:

    She spends a lot of time emphasizing how little she has to contribute intellectually beyond using her father as a talking point, doesn’t she?

  18. Franny says:

    The culture war started in the 60s when minorities started fighting for equal rights. That’s when the GOP started courting white supremacists in the south who were angry at Johnson for ushering in the voting rights act. It was called the Southern Strategy.

    In the 2000’s, Karl Rove and Bush resuscitated that strategy (although it never really left) with their dog whistle politics.

    In the Trump years, however, the mask is off and the dog whistle is a bullhorn. And people like McCain still think it’s Obama’s fault for having the audacity to be black, ambitious, and successful. I guess he didn’t get the memo that he was supposed to be subservient to McCain or the Trump spawn!

  19. shanaynay says:

    I will no longer watch “The View”, if this TWIT remains on the show. I think she needs to be FIRED ASAP!!!! She’s a disgusting human being!

  20. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Well lets be real – all of this stems from the idea that black folks have to “perfect”. Obama couldnt just be a great President. No. He’s black – so he has to be perfect. And if he isnt perfect then he has no right to have an opinion or defend himself. And that’s how black people have been diminished for eons.

    • Darla says:

      that’s true. you always see these people saying “he was no angel” about a black man or even kid that someone (usually but not always the cops) killed. i didn’t know you had to be an angel to deserve not to be murdered. also, i don’t know any angels.

      • Suz says:

        And this can be seen right now as conservative outlets debate whether Ahmaud Arbery was on a construction site days before his murder. As if that has anything to do with three white supremacists making the decision to get in their truck, stalk him, and film themselves murdering him in cold blood for no other reason than the color of his skin.

    • Veronica S. says:

      They’re just so f*cking mad he managed to run a decently competent presidency AND get through landmark healthcare legislation lol.

    • Poisonella says:

      Well to all those goobers who hate Obama – he won! He is better than you! You are not in his class! He will continue to be revered! People will continue to break into applause and start to cry when they see him!

  21. BayTampaBay says:

    The Electoral College system allowed this happen. Hillary Clinton won the election by 3 million+ popular votes.

  22. HK9 says:

    McCain is a prime example of ‘a mind is a terrible thing to waste.’

  23. Meg says:

    When someone tries to control my opinions they exaggerate what i say so I’ll point out i dont feel that strongly.
    No one ive ever spoken to has used the words saint or perfect when describing Obama, people who dont like him exaggerate to create an excuse for themselves to complain. they support the most flawed person imaginable for president because of white privilege they think hes entitled to that position and are threatened by a competent black man

  24. Mina_Esq says:

    The people that could pretend not to be racist when Obama was elected couldn’t also pretend not to be homophobic (legalizing gay marriage) and selfish (Obamacare). Too much liberal agenda for their small minds and hearts.

  25. Valerie says:

    at least she isn’t referring to it as a spiritual war, but get fucked, Megan.

  26. Jan says:


    You are spot on. I wholeheartedly agree with you.

    By not accepting / cutting through / pointing out the BS, you have earned my respect I love this site. But nowadays I find myself seeking out your commentary on the political madness. It helps me feel less alone. I’m going to take some time to tell all your advertisers to spend more $ here 😀

  27. Kari says:

    Another day, another Karen that I am tired of hearing *le sigh*

  28. Sparkle says:

    I am done tolerating white supremacists like this woman Megan. She is regurgitating alt right racist talking points about Obama and its time to call it what it is- white supremacy. Our tolerance of people like her and saying “well she has a right to her opinion, Im not gunna say anthing” is not working anymore. Im glad we name and shame racists on this site. She may not wear a white robe and Klan cap in 2020, but we see you Megan, we see you. Bye felicia!

    I wish Meghan would shut the f… up.

  30. Busy Bee says:

    She is conveniently forgetting that it was her father who introduced and legitimized this branch of crazy when he picked Sarah Palin as his running mate.

  31. Suz says:

    Is the “culture war” another thing that Fox News made up, like the “war on Christmas?” I see idiot Trumpers on my NextDoor feed blabbing about the “culture war” (when it comes to wearing a mask right now, FFS). I figured that’s where they got it from.

    Fanatics are driven by hate, no surprises there. A simple solution to all problems is preferable to some people at certain times. This inevitably leads us to disaster. Unfortunately, my beloved President Obama (I stan for him for all times in all matters) in my opinion, by his very existence, triggered a bigoted, ignorant, racist and ugly mob, known as the 40% (give or take) who voted for the one now in office. Meghan McCain is dead wrong.

    This culture war has been brewing for decades. Republicans made the decision to court the religious vote by making abortion a wedge issue. Now, evangelicals and the like will vote for and support whoever no matter what as long as they appoint conservative judges with the total and sole endgame of ending abortion. That is why Trump is where he is and why he continues to get support from Evangelicals in particular and other Christians. They do not care about anything more than the Supreme Court and that has been in the making for years. They will support him no matter what as long as he gets them closer to that end game- Period. Full stop. End of

    And the worst part? They’ll win. Because people couldn’t bring themselves to vote for Hillary, Trump will be able to appoint a majority conservative Supreme Court. Thanks Bernie Bro’s et al, I hope it was worth it!

    The Repugnicans started the culture war with their vendetta against the Clintons that goes on to this day. There are all kinds of right wing lawsuits still trudging their way through courts. And now they are aghast at all the lawsuits and investigations into this administration? They can take a jump.

    If by ushering in the culture war she means “Be President while black” then I guess she’s right. If by ushering in the culture war, she means “Suggest that maybe it’s not okay for children to be gunned down in school,” then I guess she’s right. IF by ushering in the culture war, she mean “have the audacity to suggest that black men and women should not be gunned down indiscriminately by the police (agents of the state)” then I guess she’s right. Modern conservatism is an inconsistent joke and her weak ideas are an indication of it.

    I hope we find out someday why Meghan married that racist lunatic Ben Domenech. And to think she’s going to have his child and raise it in that environment. It’s horrifying. She’s a major mess, and sorry but I still think that she and Ben are bearding for each other.

    It says a lot that before John McCain died he asked Obama to speak at his funeral. Then his own daughter sh*ts on Obama whenever she gets the chance.

  38. Mollie says:

    Unfortunately Meghan, it was your father’s choice of Sarah Palin as a running mate that brought this on. He regretted that decision and openly said that he regretted it. He knew what it brought. Ugh.

    I could not stand this woman and stopped watching the View mostly due to her. (Whoppi started getting on my nerves too.) I always had mixed feelings for John McCain.. To me he seemed to change his position a lot.

    I figured she married that guy because he was the only one who ever asked her and her clock was ticking.
