Meghan McCain goes off on the ‘very obvious oppo dump on Meghan Markle’

meghan mccain1

Much like the hairstylists at The View, I’ve talked a lot of sh-t about Meghan McCain. To be fair to myself, Meghan McCain is usually pretty terrible. The last time we discussed her, she was saying absolute nonsense about Israel, the coronavirus vaccine and how Dr. Fauci should be fired because he doesn’t “understand science.” But guess what? Meghan McCain said something this week which shook me to my core: the truth!! She sat there on The View with her f–ked up hair and she went OFF about the “oppo dump” on the Duchess of Sussex, re: the “bullying palace aides” claim.

“Yeah this is really interesting because it’s a very obvious oppo dump on Meghan Markle. One of the things she’s being accused of in her abuse is emailing staffers early in the morning. So I think that’s obviously ridiculous on a lot of different levels. I think when it comes to leaks and oppo dumps against a subject whether it’s on talk shows, like it happens on this show, or in politics you always have to ask, ‘Who is benefiting and what do people gain by making a specific subject look bad?’ Right now they’re trying to make Megan Markle look really really bad including, um, accusing her of wearing diamond earrings that were gifted her by the prince of Saudi Arabia after Jamal Khashoggi was murdered. And these are all facts that have been I guess known for for many years, why are they coming out right now? They’re coming out right now because there’s a big Oprah interview coming out that’s probably going to make the palace look really bad…”

“[I have a question for the Palace:] Why is Meghan Markle’s earrings and her emailing early in the morning more important than Prince Andrew allegedly having sex with minors on Jeffrey Epstein’s Pedophile Island? Because that seems like a way bigger problem for you guys and instead you’re focusing on her. And I think we can’t ignore the elephant [in the] room that there’s probably a racial angle to this. There’s a lot of racism directed at this woman in a lot of different ways. She threatens a lot of people in the patriarchy, in lots of different areas and it just looks like they are bullying her in the press. I am going to be sitting watching the entire two in two hour interview…”

[Transcript via YouTube]

I swear to God the entire segment is like this. Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin and McCain went OFF. This bodes well. If someone like Meghan McCain can clearly see the Palace’s ham-fisted, amateurish clownery and racism, then the Sussexes will be just fine.

    The BRF is so terrible that they made me agree with “my father” Meghan McCain. Like – that’s low. Even for them.

    • LillyfromLillooet says:

      I do believe the BRF is dangerously (for them) unaware of how badly their treatment of H&M will hurt them the most.

      Correct me if I’m wrong but then no longer run anything? The only thing they had (HAD!) was their stand as a spiritual and moral leadership.

    • Levans says:

      Exactly! As I’ve said before, most people in the states are seeing this for what it is. The BRF is King George III from Hamilton sing “🎶 You’ll be back…” while Harry and Meg are living their best lives in the States.

      The world turned upside down!

      • Angelica Schuyler says:

        Yes! I’ve said this exact same thing. And Harry and Meghan are Taylor Swift saying : “We are NEVER EVER getting back together!” to the BRF!

      • Faithmobile says:

        There is pro Sussex account on twitter with a picture of King George from Hamilton. The British Royals have a history of underestimating American’s thirst for independence.

      • fluffy_bunny says:

        I remember photos of Willnot and Cannot seeing Hamilton in London with I believe the OBC. They should have paid better attention.

    • Mac says:

      When even Meghan McCain can see through your BS, your goose is cooked.

      • lucky says:

        to be fair, albeit a little negative, I feel like Meghan says something reasonable once in a while just to confuse people and give us a false sense that she can be reasonable. This was low stakes for her to admit the truth.

      • Liz version 700 says:

        She says something I actually agree with, but ads to my embarrassment by saying it while dressed as Grumpy Princess Leah.

      • Princess McCain Reporting from Bizarro World’s Star Wars Alternate Universe: Geeze….McCain has her head screwed on right for once. Of course even a broken clock is right twice a day.

    • superashes says:

      Yeah. You have to wonder exactly what the hell they were thinking. So you can now open an investigation into how a bullying complaint filed on behalf of others without their knowledge (then rescinded without their request) was handled years after the fact, but there is no need to look into someone purposely frustrating a tiara fitting for a nationally televised wedding, the series of leaks around said wedding, the fact that someone handed Meghan those Saudi earrings to wear in the first place (in all likelihood to que up some other smear they simply forgot about), what happened with the first night nurse who was sacked in the middle of the night (and traumatized them so much that they eventually just decided to only have a nanny during the day), oh… and the fact that Andrew may have raped a teenager.

      No one is buying this, Epstein may not be a big story in the UK but it is a huge one here, and the RF is very much second fiddle to that story in our media

      • harperc says:

        What is irritating to me about the press is that they have collectively forgotten the timeline of what happened to Khashoggi.

        Yes, he was murdered on Oct 2, 2018, but the press is “forgetting” that at first he was missing, possibly kidnapped. It wasn’t until Oct 12 that Turkey came out with confirmation that per their surveillance, he was killed. And it took several more weeks to piece together who was there and who they worked for. The Saudis confirmed his death on Oct 20. It wasn’t until very recently that the report came out blaming MBS.

        Harry and Meghan started their tour on Oct 15, so everything would have been packed and ready for days beforehand. And the outfit was worn Oct 23.

        Meghan is a smart woman, but even she probably wasn’t paying attention to every single international news event while preparing for and then doing a whirlwind tour. Let alone international events where nobody knew all the details yet….. Well except for the Saudis, and they weren’t talking.

      • Dlc says:

        What’s interesting is the possibility that someone possibly set up Markle with the shady earrings YEARS in advance to possibly have dirt on her later. That is fascinating. There are thousands of earrings in the royal collection I bet, and someone directed her to those.

      • MsIam says:

        The earrings are the stupidest part of the story yet. I hope this comes up whenever we see Kate wear those Saudi sapphires again. Or when we see Charles being feted at yet another Saudi dinner.

    • Farfromreality says:

      I follow a lot of lefties on Twitter who would sooner see the monarchy abolished than read gosssip about them – and EVEN THEY were saying shit like, “I don’t f*ck with royalty, but it seems like the Man can’t leave this couple alone!” yesterday.

  2. Ang says:

    Preach!!

  3. Eleonor says:

    Who is this.

    • Bernie says:

      Oh, you sweet summer child…. be happy you don’t know.

      • minx says:

        That’s exactly what I was going to say…be grateful for not knowing who this crabby spoiled Republican spawn is.

    • Nicole says:

      She is late Senator John McCain’s daughter, Megan McCain. She is also an heiress. She has been able to parlay that name recognition and connection to be a political pundant. In general she’s seen as a hack, and a not very good one. What you’re seeing is many of us with our minds blown that we are agreeing with her. As they say, a broken clock is right twice a day.

      • Gabby says:

        And she is always pissed off. Always.

      • L4frimaire says:

        Meghan McCain is a pill and very annoying. However, she’s grown up around political machinery and an oppo dump is the right word for it. The Brits are reeling from this. At least the people over all CBS seem really calm and the Sussexes aren’t saying anything either. We’ll see.

    • Nic919 says:

      She is the princess of Arizona… at least in her mind.

  4. Snuffles says:

    The British Media are FURIOUS that their smear campaign isn’t taking in America. In some article called Americans jingoistic for taking Meghan’s side.

    No, we just know bullshit when we see it. Just lived through 4 years of it and have had ENOUGH!

    • Silver Charm says:

      I wonder if that means PEOPLE mag will stop their monthly(?) Royals! Just Like Us! Magazine covers?

      • lanne says:

        Depends. Lots of MAGAs in the minivan majority who still love princess cosplay.

      • manda says:

        people mag loves them some kate

      • Tessa says:

        what bothers me is that Kate is treated like a Heroine by her stans taking on “mean” Meghan who “was terrible” to the staff. Kate is a married in and if Will gets tired of her and wants something else she would get the same Meghan treatment.

    • Brit says:

      Everyone in the media here could see it for what it was. The problem with the British press is their hubris. No one is going to open themselves to a lawsuit in America for made up sources and gossip, which is why tabloid culture is not taken seriously or not as it used to be. Meghan has a lot of connections in the states and so does Harry, they are good people with good reputations here. Whatever the press thought they were trying, it’s not working and they’re pissed.

      • Mac says:

        Americans who follow royals love Meghan. I think she a perfect partner for Harry and it’s really unfortunate how they have been hurt by a snobby, racist institution that is fatally out of touch and tone deaf. Brits may keep a stiff upper lip, but in America we talk about our dysfunctional families. Some even get reality TV shows.

    • Gabby says:

      You know who also likes Meghan and Harry here? President and First Lady Biden, who the Royal Family so desperately wants to make inroads with. I would SO love to see those inroads blocked. I would like to see our First Family only take calls from M&H. Of course Biden needs to establish communication with Boris Johnson, as they are counterparts, but there is no need for the Bidens to make BP or especially KP look good.

      • Snuffles says:

        Exactly! I don’t think the royals are going to be invited to the White House during the Biden Administration. Nor will he accept an invite to visit Buckingham Palace either.

      • lanne says:

        I think a state dinner comes with a state visit so I think the Queen will welcome Biden to the palace. Even so, the specter of the Sussexes will loom large. Honestly, I hope by then the breach has been patched. The RF, if they were wise, would go to the Sussexes hat in hand and call a truce. Having Harry and Meghan at a Biden state dinner could go a long way to rehabilitate the image of the monarchy, especially as now they have been called racists. I think the RF even now needs Harry and Meghan, while the Sussexes don’t need the RF.

  5. Lauren says:

    As I said in twitter: the moment that even right wing enthusiast Meghan McCain says that racism was involved in the smearing campaign against Meghan you know you got a problem.

  6. Deanne says:

    Can’t stand Meghan McCain but her take was literally perfect.

    • Ann says:

      Yes, surprisingly so. I mean, that hair…..WTF? But loved her take and the whole segment.

      • fluffy_bunny says:

        The eye shadow is really bad too. It looks like she has a raging case of pink eye in both eyes. But hell has frozen over because I actually agree with Meghan McCain.

      • Sarah says:

        The hair is ridiculous. A WOC would be called unprofessional or be fired for that hairstyle. Little girls get suspended for puffs FFS. Her White privilege lets her go on camera like that with zero pushback.

      • L4frimaire says:

        Her hair and makeup is very 90s club kid, you know he type who wear pacifiers and those huge platform oxfords. The Views take was very good on this and they all had good input on this.

      • Deanne says:

        I know. That hair. Good lord.

    • lucy2 says:

      I agree. She’s terrible in general, but I will admit when she’s right, and she’s absolutely right here.

  7. Martha says:

    It’s interesting they keep bringing up the earrings right after there was an article published four days ago titled “The Queen accepted several horses from the ruler of Dubai after he was accused of kidnapping his daughter” and it was not a good look on her. Talk about trying to misdirect.

    • Becks1 says:

      The earrings were SUCH an obvious misdirection, it was just too much. Had they left the earrings out, and the UN event, the bullying allegations may have been taken more seriously by people outside of the right wing royalist circles. But as it was, by lumping everything together, it just made their whole game so obvious.

    • Myra says:

      I think this is the part that did it for everyone. In a story about bullying, you are also bringing up jewellery? It sounds less like the article cares about bullying allegations and more like it’s intent is on sullying her name.

      Most of these commentators in the US media are used to reporting on politicians, so they rightly recognised this for what it is – an oppo dump. It’s not difficult to make this association when the Palace keeps hiring political strategists. Simon Case stands out the most. He came to work for KP in October 2018 and coincidentally that’s when the attacks on Meghan start. He leaves KP right after Meghan leaves the BRF on the pretense that he is being seconded to Boris’ government. Yeah, no. These political tricks can only work on the truly gullible.

    • Miranda says:

      As an aside, the story of that kidnapped daughter and her sister (Latifa and Shamsa) is TERRIFYING. I cannot imagine the trauma of your own father doing that, then forcibly medicating you and telling the world, “she’s crazy, she doesn’t know what she’s saying” and holding you captive.

      • lanne says:

        I went down the rabbit hole a few days ago. Terrifying. Shamsa is likely dead. I think William would do the same to Harry if he could get away with it

      • BnLurkN4eva says:

        @lanne, I actually absolutely believe that family (BRF) would do that to Harry if they got their hands on him since he left. It’s why I consider for THEM, (H/M) COVID had a silver lining. Harry would have gone back to the UK at some point last year and I believe he would have been commandeered somehow. They are that messed up and determined to play out their family dysfunction into another generation where Harry play the fall guy for his brother like previous spares.

      • lanne says:

        Lots of people already think the RF had a hand in Diana’s death. I don’t think so, but I can’t help observe how damn convenient it was for everyone involved. I’d like to think that William doesn’t have enough power to off his brother, and there are too many people who could spring leaks in any plan, especially in the age of social media. I think William is really dangerous right now—lashing out indiscriminately. As much as I think Kate is up to her eyeballs in this, I hope for her sake that she and the kids really are living apart from William. His temper must be terrifying to experience.

    • L4frimaire says:

      It seems so greedy a d grasping how the royals except all these lavish gifts from these other, usually despotic countries. They just take them and then flaunt these crazy expensive jewels, or profit off the horses. Does Britain give lavish gifts to other world leaders? Does the Queen give a few Gainsborough paintings on state visits to Iceland? It’s like a weird bribery since they accept these gifts ,then try to sweeten arms deals by sending royals out to these countries. Even the Biden admins tiptoes around how they’ll handle MBS because of reliance on arms sales to the Saudis and energy deals. Using Meghan as a pawn in this to score points was going in a very dicey direction.

  8. Darla says:

    Everyone talks about the hair, but it’s her eyeshadow that always astounds me…

    She had to get that shade in against her coworkers tho, did you catch that? LOL

  9. Becks1 says:

    I was agreeing with her, of course, but was also waiting to see if she was going to mention racism or dance around it, and lo and behold, she did! She went there – racism, patriarchy, etc.

    If Meghan effing McCain can see what’s happening, then everyone should be able to.

  10. Chartreuse says:

    Omid posted this and it was spot on. Occasionally I agree with Meghan Mc.

  11. Chaine says:

    She looks like a teddy bear with that hairstyle

    • windyriver says:

      Speaking of teddy bear – remember Archie in the picture with Harry in Canada? That’s what she reminds me of. Archie was wearing a hat from a New Zealand knitting collective (that I think Meghan and Harry donated to – last Xmas?), with a pom pom on each side. Archie’s hat style is called “Cocobear”.

  12. Kebbie says:

    Lol I was ready to roll my eyes when I watched this yesterday, I couldn’t believe how right she got it all.

    The difference in American and British takes on this whole thing is so interesting to me. Americans are not having it at all. It’s turning apathetic people like me into pro-Sussex defenders.

    My mom is even interested in watching the interview now and she couldn’t care less about royals or celebrity gossip. I’m not sure how much it matters what Americans think, but what a massive PR failure (at least on this side of the pond.)

    • one of the Marys says:

      @Kebbie Some of the difference has got to come from the different cultures. Americans admire hard work and hustle, Britain has a class system. Meghan didn’t know her place and felt she was as good as any of them. The British media are fools if they think they can convince the American media to mistreat an American for British reasons.

  13. Anh says:

    “Prince Andrew allegedly having sex with minors.” Nope, “raped.”

  14. Cecilia says:

    I couldn’t believe my eyes and ears when i saw it

  15. bitsycs says:

    The RF’s insane miscalculation here is endlessly funny. As one of my friends always says, they should have just sat there and ate their food. A lot of people have been stewing over the Andrew situation and the fact that these absolute dolts walked right into announcing an investigation into fake bullying after stonewalling any investigation into and ignoring the allegations surrounding Prince NoSweatCantBeMe is well, something, indeed. It’s all so transparent.

    Not to mention, I’m not sure why anyone British, but especially the royal family, thought it’d be a good idea to go toe to toe with Americans. Americans may be more divided than ever, but there’s something in our DNA where we all agree that the British Royal Family should eff right off and leave us the hell alone. But I guess that American media market was just too tantalizing for Bill and Cathy…lol forever.

    • Dee Kay says:

      I honestly think for Americans there is still a huge wellspring of love for Diana, and Diana *loved* being in New York, in New York Diana felt admired and appreciated just for her own sake, for her excellent charity work and her kindness and charm and wit and charisma and beauty. No one in NY ever asked Diana where Charles was or what was happening with the RF, they understood that she was a divorcée and the past should be left in the past. It’s that American attitude of, You are not your past or your family or your ex-husband’s family, you are YOU and what are you bringing to the table? The bullying of Diana by the royals was not as visible to Americans then but she did go on the record about it, and how differently she felt in the U.S. And now that the exact same thing is happening to Harry and his wife, Americans are like, HELL NO, not this time. We value H&M for who they are, right now, what they are doing, how they are helping, what they are going to put out. We don’t care about their former situation — and it’s repulsive to that line of thinking that the RF keeps on trying to put them in their “place” and hold them down at any cost.

  16. Noki says:

    This week i am sooo happy,i genuinely believed the only sane people were on CELEBITCHY,but the number of people even public figures calling complete bulls*** on this absurd smear has given me faith in humanity again. I saw a panel on Sky with Gina Yashere and other ladies,been seeing actual logical comments even on DM threads,FINALLY this treatment of Meg is getting the real outrage it deserves. I hope Oprah records a highlight piece of the madness this week before the interview airs.

    • FC says:

      Same! It’s great to see American media really get behind her and call out the BRF’s sh*t. I can’t wait for the American coverage of the interview. It could do some serious damage to the monarchy.

  17. Merricat says:

    Hell and Texas have frozen over : I agree with Meg McCain

  18. Sofia says:

    I agree with Meghan McCain. Which is a first. If she of all people can see the this whole thing for what it is, this has definitely not gone their way.

  19. lanne says:

    I imagine Oprah is counseling the Sussexes right now, telling them to hold firm and stay calm. This is to be expected. I’ll bet lots of celebrities are calling them and offering support as well. The RF is GIVING THE SUSSEXES A CAREER AROUND THE WORLD. Everyone loves an underdog, especially in the US. This is Diana 2.0 with the love story Happily ever after that Diana was denied. All the royals had to do was shut up and wait to see what happens. William and Kate are seeing, maybe for the first time in their lives, that they can’t win this war. For a couple of starfuckers like them, who’s going to care what they do? What celebrities will want to associate their brand with them. MAGAs will, but that’s not what they want. Here’s all the ways these fools have cut off their noses to spite their faces:
    1). Brought the royal jewelry collection into question. So much of Diana’s jewels have Saudi provenance, as do Camillas
    2) strengthened the Sussexes popularity around the world. This freak out of theirs has only led to global distribution of this interview. Hundreds of millions of people will watch it
    3) compromised this own ability to pretend to work with causes like bullying or racism. Anything William says now will be called out as a joke
    4) compromised the prestige of the royal brand, globally. Now, any royal tour they may consider will be done in the wake of this self created crisis. People will be talking about their response to this situation no matter where they go, and they will have to have “ no questions about the Sussexes riders” in their contracts that the media will discuss and likely break.
    5). Compromised their own power. The only power that have, the only coin they can trade in, is access to themselves. The only threat they can make is to remove access to themselves. Any media organization now will choose Harry and Meghan (condons Harry segment was at 15 million views on YouTube at last check) over Will and Kate. Someone’s going to pull out The NY Times bot buying article written last year and check the engagement with Cambridge social media since. What happens now if a reporter goes rogue and asks Kate a question off script? She’ll melt like ice on a stove! So what if you never get to interview her again? She likely won’t ever be interviewed again except by the friendliest people for that reason
    6) most damagingly for them, they have compromised the prestige of their brand in the UK. Lots of UK celebs haven’t spoken because they still probably want those OMBs or BMEs or whatever (knighthood stuff). The power of that stuff diminishes when the Queen dies. If William gets outed as the villain he seems to be, who will want a chest trinket from him? Well, racists and old folks will, but what about the people needed to keep the prestige going? Does no one in that band of amateurs see this? Charles might not have much left to reign over if he doesn’t reign in his own damn son.

    • Babz says:

      What a great summation! The BRF and their respective households have shown themselves to the world now, and a huge chunk of that world – The Commonwealth – is paying close attention. It’s been said often that the Commonwealth is dearer to Betty than just about anything except her horses and dogs. If, after this interview, the cracks begin to look like canyons in that body, she and the rest of that family will have no one but themselves to blame for its dissolution. Her legacy project is getting a shellacking, and when Charles ascends the throne, I don’t see him having the dynamism and charisma to rebuild the bridges.

      • Dollycoa says:

        I do wonder what will happen to Canada and Australia when HM goes. It’s bad enough having a Royal Family here, but when your Head of State lives thousands of miles away and is just generation after generation of stale white men who dont represent indigenous people or any immigrant community, it must feel completely unsustainable. Especially when India and all of Africa are republics and still part of the Commonwealth but they are subjects. Must feel wrong, especially to the younger generations

    • Liz version 700 says:

      So so well said. They (William & Kate) cut off their foot and whacked themselves in the face with it.

    • Nyro says:

      All. Of. This!! Brilliant analysis.

  20. LillyfromLillooet says:

    Um also I have to say I love Meghan McCain’s hair. Especially with the bright pink eyeliner and no I am not being sarcastic.

  21. SM says:

    Clearly her make up and hair person hates her. But yes, anyone with any kind of public platform should not miss an opportunity to remind the hypocritical royals that the real problem in their family is Prince Pedophile.

  22. Jilly. says:

    I wish Oprah would add a half hour to address this horrible week of slander. Set the cord straight.
    A story keeps popping up on sitesThat Oprah is pissed about the James cordon bit. It can’t be true because we alllll saw them filming and of course she knew.

    • Becks1 says:

      Nah Oprah isnt ticked about that. That was taped before CBS announced the Oprah interview, and obviously both Corden and Oprah are on CBS. I think it was purposeful – let Harry get out there first on Corden, have a serious moment in the midst of the fun, emphasize that it was HIS choice, emphasize that he’s still on good terms with his grandparents, and then let Meghan go to Oprah and destroy the courtiers and press.

  23. Tiffany says:

    I ain’t giving her no credit.

    She knew she would have been next level destroyed if she said she believed what was said about Meghan. There would have been no rebound for My Father.

  24. Cee says:

    I bet William isn’t feeling so smart and PR-savvy after all.

    • Babz says:

      I’m not so sure that he has the self awareness to feel stupid. That giant ego of his won’t entertain the idea that he’s by no means is he the smartest person in any room.

  25. RoyalBlue says:

    I will never forget the post by one of our members, kerwood, who said the one sided media bias that happens in the UK would never fly in the US. Folks would call that shit out. And she was so so right.

    • kerwood says:

      Thank you. I have to say I’m glad to be right about this. I must say I’m surprised about Meghan McCain. I would have never thought that she would not only stand up for the Duchess of Sussex, but actually acknowledge the racism in all the attacks against her. I’m still cleaning up the pieces of my mind that was blown all over the room.

      Sunday is going to come and the world will see that Harry and Meghan didn’t savage the royal family because they are decent people and Harry still cares for his family (even if they don’t deserve it). So all of this ugliness will have been for nothing. But I hope that investigations open up about ALL gifts the royal family have received from dictators. And an investigation into workplace conditions under the royal family. Most of all, I want people to start asking why the royal family is attacking a pregnant woman who is no longer associated with them (which is what they wanted, isn’t it), while they embrace a man that the FBI want to talk to about raping girls who were sex slaves of his good pal Jeffry Epstein.

      Enough is enough.

      Edited to add: I thought McCain’s hair was cute. Never thought I’d say that either.

  26. Feeshalori says:

    One of the hosts said she wouldn’t even discuss Meghan until they address the allegations against Prince Andrew which was fire!🔥

    • Tessa says:

      what bothers me is that Kate is treated like a Heroine by her stans taking on “mean” Meghan who “was terrible” to the staff. Kate is a married in and if Will gets tired of her and wants something else she would get the same Meghan treatment.

  27. Andrew’s Nemesis says:

    Valkyrie-Nazi hair horns aside, MM is absolutely right. Hell has indeed frozen over.

  28. Lemons says:

    The BM have forgotten that they have minorities living and working alongside them (big surprise!). They’re just not invited to their high society events and weddings, so it’s easy to understand their mistake.

    They also forgot that this can’t be contained to the pages of Tatler and the eyes of aristos in the UK. We ALL have been following. And even if you haven’t been following, they just announced they’ll INVESTIGATE Meghan while the Pedo Prince gets tucked away in his royal home, holding Mummy’s hand on the way to church. People will pay attention to that. The hypocrisy is clear.

  29. Jumpingthesnark says:

    I don’t like Meghan McCain but she was right here. And if she can lay it out like this, the BRF definitely does not have the Republican suburban ladies in the US wrapped up. Although I suspect that the BRF really only cares about pleasing the reactionaries in their own country.

  30. Case says:

    Meghan McCain is awful, but WOW, I am so grateful to her and all the other ladies on The View saying this! I’m so glad no one is falling for this abundantly obvious smear campaign. I feel a little emotional seeing these women so flatly deny that this investigation is legitimate and calling out the RF for what they’re doing.

    America is a flaming hot mess in so many ways, but I get the sense that you can damn well bet we’re all gonna stand by our girl.

    Now I wish some of the UK celebs stand up for Harry and Meghan publicly.

  32. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Lmao at that hair. Does she think she’s 12? Probably.

  33. Sandra says:

    When the queen of Karens says it’s bad, then that’s really bad.

    • AnneSurely says:

      She is horrid, but she can also be considered a subject matter expert on comms strategies by virtue of her job, which gives her opinion a heft that every armchair comms expert’s amateur opinion of ‘optics’ lacks.

  34. Coco says:

    Let’s thank the hairstylists who pulled on McCain’s hair with so much force that it rewired her brain.

  35. Jules says:

    Cannot believe all the press this is getting when Prince Andrew, people! Focus on the dirt living right under you. The RF is looking so bad and dysfunctional, maybe they won’t recover from this one.

    I’m do grateful that 90′s era Gwen Stefani has come out so hard in support of Meghan and to denounce the very obvious bullying by the British press …. .. but I’m not sure why you keep mentioning Meghan McCain, did she talk about it too?

  37. Steph says:

    I don’t know who the other woman is (I think she is supposed to be another conservative voice in the show) but her comment was quite succinct. “If the palace isn’t talking about investigating Andrew,I don’t want to hear about any investigations.”

    I think she probably agrees with the Meghan slander but knows it isn’t high in the priority list.

    • Feeshalori says:

      Yup, l made basically the same observation up thread. She knows what the priority and real story is.

    • fluffy_bunny says:

      Meghan McCain is the token conservative voice on the view. The others are liberal and often clash with Meghan.

    “I’m Team Meghan. …….Markle.” — Joy Behar

    • chumsley says:

      LMAO, I loved that bit.

    • fluffy_bunny says:

      Joy and Meghan McCain hate each other and Meghan is so tired of having to socially distance she’s said she can’t wait to have a dinner party and will even gladly invite Joy.

  39. Didi says:

    Americans aren’t the only ones siding with the Sussexes. I’m in Europe and I see people from all around the world defending them on Twitter.
    The Royal Family is only relevant as a tourist attraction and this is damaging their brand worldwide. They should be careful.

    • fluffy_bunny says:

      I will never again set foot or buy anything from the UK. I won’t even fly through it. I cancelled a cruise that left from the UK. I’m hoping for Scottish independence because I’m a huge Outlander fan and would love to visit Scotland.

    Just here to say you can’t have sex with minors. The word you’re looking for is rape.
