    Donald Trump's victory in Indiana came down quick as a guillotinebut even before the election results rolled in, the GOP faithful were jumping ship. Former John McCain aide Mark Salter declared his allegiance to Hillary Clinton earlier today. the GOP is going to nominate for President a guy who reads the National Enquirer and thinks it's on the level.

  • Theres no Trump without Palin: Meghan McCain scolds conservatives for backing Trump

    05/06/2016 11:35:22 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 125 replies
    Donald Trumps coronation as the GOP nominee will present plenty of opportunities for Republican amnesia and short-sightedness. The easiest thing to do, if youre a conservative Republican, is to dismiss Trump as an aberration, as if his candidacy emerged out of a whirlwind. But thats the work of revisionist historians, not honest observers of the last decade of Republican politics. Consider this recent tweet by Meghan McCain, the daughter of John McCain and now a commentator for Fox News: I hope history remembers those who gave up their conservative principles for the cult of personality and celebrity. And those who...
  • Meghan McCain: Carly Fiorina is great because she warms up Ted Cruz

    Fox News host Meghan McCain argued on Thursday that GOP hopeful Ted Cruz had been smart to choose Carly Fiorina as his runningmate because she warms up the Texas senator. I love Carly Fiorina, McCain explained on the Thursday edition of Foxs Outnumbered. She has gone after Hillary Clinton the hardest. She rips out her jugular and serves it to me on a platter, which is what I want coming up in the election. What I like about Carly Fiorina is she warms up Ted Cruz, she continued. Shes going to reach out in Indiana to moms to women. How...

Before you say anything let me say, she was actually a refreshing change of pace and somebody has been giving that girl some serious coaching and training. It’s going to be hard to overcome her dingbat Valley Girl persona, butt I will say: she is evolving in the right direction.

VIDEO AT LINK On Your World with Neil Cavuto, McCain responded to the hosts question about the possible impact of Neil Bushs recent support of Cruz by saying that she found it much less important than Fiorinas.

    Jeb Bush’s imploding presidential candidacy sparked an explosive debate among Fox News hosts on “The Five” this week. Tempers began to flare after Meghan McCain, the daughter of Arizona senator and former presidential candidate John McCain, argued that while Bush is flawed candidate much of the blame for his sagging poll numbers could be attributed to him having “bad people around him.” Being the “only person that has been on a campaign that imploded and came back from the dead” she believes Bush can make a comeback. “He needs to clean house with his staff,” she said before her co-host...

    Jeb Bush‘s campaign isn’t doing very well right now. The candidate himself has had to say this week that his own campaign is “not on life support.” The hosts of Fox News’ The Five tried to diagnose exactly what Bush is doing wrong (that now-infamous debate exchange with Marco Rubio certainly factored into it). Meghan McCain spoke up and said, “As the only person that’s been on a campaign that imploded and then came back from the dead… he needs to clean house with his staff!” Bollig pushed back on that being the problem, but McCain insisted that she knows...

    After only one short season, Senator John McCain's daughter Meghan saw the cancellation of her reality show, Raising McCain. However, on the heels of that cancellation, the Pivot Network has now announced that McCain will host a midnight political talk show. McCain's reality show debuted in September but apparently is already done. Despite the personal appeal of its star to liberals, Raising McCain was widely panned by reviewers. In fact, it was mocked outright. The show was said to be plumbing "new depths of irritation" and was a "caricature of youth political engagement." One reviewer even pointedly said that the...

    Sen. John McCains daughter says her dad is depressed and frustrated with the tea party faction of the Republican Party, which she called the hyper-conservative wing. A state of mind many in the tea party can relate to in their radical pursuit of a more fiscally responsible, limited federal government. Were both frustrated with the idea that only the hyper-conservative wing of the party is going to represent the masses, Meghan McCain said during an interview with ABC and Yahoo News. Ms. McCain, who has her own reality show Raising McCain, said the last time her father was so depressed...

    Sen. John McCain says his daughter Meghan can be a giant pain in the ass. But the 29-year-old daughter of the Arizona Republican is laughing off her fathers comment, which he makes in jest during an interview with Meghan in an upcoming episode of her new reality show, Raising McCain. I feel like McCains are pains in the asses! McCain told Top Line. McCain, who first rose to prominence by keeping a blog during her fathers 2008 presidential campaign, said that she and her father are both working through a shared frustration with the current state of the GOP. Were...

    Meghan McCain, aka the McCain Blogette, has gone after Michelle Malkin; Malkin had commented on McCains support for professional activist Sandra Fluke. McCain said that she was standing up for Fluke speaking out despite being personally attacked. However, Ms. McCain has been less than consistent when it comes to standing up for those who have been attacked for speaking out. The often outspoken Ms. McCain didnt speak out on Twitter to call out Dan Savage in the wake of some of his vicious comments on Christianity and the Bible, or his past cyber-bullying of Rick Santorum and Rick Warren. She...

    Meghan McCain continued her usual class act Thursday, appearing on Al Sharptons Politics Nation to whine about how conservatives have ostracized her from the Republican Party for her moderate views. Many people in the Republican Party treat me like Im a freak, McCain said, adding that she was blessed to be a moderate. But, she said, if youre not an extreme conservative in this party, you are not given respect. A personal note to Meghan McCain: Your political views are not the reason why people dont respect you. Miss McCain went on to criticize popular conservatives, including author Michelle Malkin...

    MSNBC contributor Meghan McCain appeared on Rev. Al Sharptons program on Thursday, where she said that the Republican party treats her like a freak and a mutant simply because she holds some moderate views on divisive social issues. McCain has often made herself out to be a victim of close-minded conservatives who simply reject her for her less-than-dogmatic policy preferences. But McCain forgets that she has made a career of being a contrarian her vehicle for getting air time consists almost entirely of starting fights with Republican pundits and lawmakers. (snip) McCain wonders why she draws the ire of...
