Ugh. Just when we thought we were getting a break from bad Meghan McCain takes…
With The View closing out its season last week, it didn’t take long for John McCain’s daughter to hop back on television. On Wednesday, the pregnant pundit appeared on Watch What Happens Live, where the conversation inevitably turned to politics.
It started with an audience question about her future on The View. McCain, annoyed, responded:
“Why does everyone ask me if I’m getting fired or quitting every 20 seconds? No other host has to go through this B.S.”
(Depends on what kind of host you’re talking about, Meg. We can think of one currently dealing with a LOT more scrutiny from her audience than you. LOLz!)
“Yes, I’m coming back, it’s an election cycle!”
Host Andy Cohen spoke for all of us when he asked the notorious “Never Trump“-er:
“You are voting for Joe Biden, I’m assuming?”
“I’m not saying who I’m voting for, but I’m not voting for Trump.”
WTF?! What is she, Team Kanye??
Now, Meghan has made a career out of political commentary (even if her only expertise comes from having a famous politician father). So we assume she knows that voting third party, or not voting at all, would actually go a long way to reelecting Donald Trump. Y’know, the guy who continually disrespected her dad’s veteran career, and actually implied that he was in hell? That guy?
On the other hand, Joe Biden is just about the most moderate candidate the Democratic party could have chosen to satisfy the 35-year-old’s conservative sensibilities. Plus, Biden is a family friend who literally gave a eulogy declaring his love for John McCain at the former presidential candidate’s funeral. If Meghan can’t suck it up and commit to voting for Biden, it says a lot about what these “Never Trump” Republicans’ priorities are — and it doesn’t seem to include actually getting Trump out of office.
Instead, the television personality said she wants to see how it all shakes out, like it’s a sporting event, and not one of the most defining political moments in most Americans’ lives. She explained:
“I want to see how this plays out, I want to see the debates. I’m like such a last-minute — I mean, I’m so spoiled because I’ve loved so many elections and this one is not my favorite for a lot of different reasons.”
Spoiled is right — and not just because she’s the wealthy, white daughter of a beloved politician whose name got her a cushy TV job. She’s spoiled because she gets to talk about elections like favorite seasons of Real Housewives, when for MANY Americans, the outcome of this race is literally a matter of life or death.
We don’t need to remind anyone that more than 100,000 people have died of COVID-19 under Trump’s poor leadership, right? Unemployment and homelessness on the rise? A floundering economy? And that’s just in the last few months.
During the WWHL after show, McCain went on to say that Biden’s VP pick would play a major role in her voting decision. She claimed to favor Sen. Tammy Duckworth for her veteran record, but said she was aware that “people want a Black woman to be chosen,” expressing dislike for Obama adviser Susan Rice in the role.
Forgive us if we don’t take Meghan’s advice too seriously. If she can’t even commit to voting against the man who said he “[liked] people who weren’t captured” over her dad, then she doesn’t get a say in the Democrats’ decisions! We’d prefer if someone with a bit more spine was weighing in, but that’s just us…
