    Meghan McCain, on "The View", defended her father, the late Sen. John McCain, against disparaging comments from President Donald Trump. Over the weekend Trump reiterated jabs he's made at the senator over the years, calling McCain "last in his class," in a post on Twitter. On 'The View' Monday, Meghan McCain said Trump "spends his weekend obsessing over great men" because "he will never be a great man." "My father was his kryptonite," McCain said.

    Meghan McCain on Saturday presented the legacy of her father, John McCain, as a sharp contrast to the conduct of President Donald Trump, with whom the late senator bitterly feuded. Although McCain didn't mention the President by name -- and he was not present at the service, in accordance with the late senator's wishes -- she made several unmistakable and pointed references throughout her emotional remarks. "We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness, the real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of...

    MSNBC contributor Meghan McCain appeared on Rev. Al Sharpton’s 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...

    Meghan McCain continued her usual class act Thursday, appearing on Al Sharpton’s “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 I’m a freak,” McCain said, adding that she was “blessed” to be a moderate. But, she said, “if you’re 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 don’t respect you. Miss McCain went on to criticize popular conservatives, including author Michelle Malkin...

    Meghan McCain, MSNBC’s newest contributor with a growing laundry list of outlandish comments to her credit, appeared as on Wednesday’s Tonight Show. During the broadcast, the quirky McCain compared herself to conservative icon President Ronald Reagan, asserting that if he were in the presidential race today, “he would be called a dirty moderate like me, unfortunately.” McCain, who identifies herself as a “big proponent” of same-sex marriage, said that her views have isolated her in Republican circles. “People don’t think I’m Republican enough because I’m a big advocate of marriage equality in this country. But I’m very proud to do...

    Meghan McCain, MSNBC's newly hired contributor, conducted her first interview for the cable news network on Wednesday with Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann. McCain--who in January called Bachmann "a poor man's Sarah Palin" on MSNBC--said that the interview will air "soon" on "Now With Alex Wagner," the network's lunch hour show. On Lawrence O'Donnell's "Last Word" in January, McCain took vigorous issue with Bachmann's tea-party rebuttal to President Obama's State of the Union. "I think it's important to note that Michele Bachmann is not a leader, and she's not the leader of the Repbulican Party," McCain said. "Michele Bachmann is no...

    Sarah Palin Is a Tease! Even after Michele Bachmann’s win in the Iowa straw poll last weekend, Sarah Palin won’t go away. Is she really serious about running for president? As Meghan McCain sees it, not a chance. It’s the middle of August and we’re in the dog days of a political summer, when the Republican contenders for president are scrambling to figure out how to unseat Obama in 2012. The exaggerated importance placed on last weekend’s Ames straw poll isn’t a surprise. Michele Bachmann probably won’t be our next president, but the intense need for some sort of political...

    The Culture and Media Institute ^ | July 1, 2011 | Erin R. Brown
    There were two candidates on the GOP ticket in 2008, John McCain and Sarah Palin. Both had young daughters involved in the campaign. Both have written books about the experience. Guess which book was celebrated and which was savaged? The media's character assassination of Sarah Palin knows no bounds, as she's been smeared as everything from "evil" to "unintelligent." But "Palin Derangement Syndrome" is a hereditary disease, and the media have continued their multigenerational malice toward Bristol Palin in reviews of her new memoir, "Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far."

    With last week's debate behind them, Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty, Michele Bachmann, and others have officially kicked off the race for the GOP presidential nomination. But do any of them have the chops to topple Obama in 2012? Meghan McCain offers seven tips on what they should do between now and then. Dear Republican candidates running for president in 2012: You are up against one of the most media-beloved presidents in history, one journalists will do almost anything to protect. You are running against a man who has created a cult following and a narrative that transcends popular culture. How...

    I don’t mind that Meghan McCain wants to redefine RINOism or, conservative liberalism, as “Republican” because no actual conservative takes it seriously. I do mind that she talks about the tea party without actually knowing the scorecard. “I think the tea party is dying out a little bit, I think in the last election a lot of their candidates weren’t elected.(Tonight Show)” If Meghan is such a Republican why is she parroting baseless progressive talking points on the effectiveness of the tea party? She has said of the movement: “These people are not as relevant as they say they are,”...

    MEGHAN MCCAIN: I Expect My Family And Sarah Palin To Be Nothing Short Of Crucified By HBO's 'GAME CHANGE' HBO is adapting a miniseries based on Game Change, the book about the 2008 election. But as Hollywood casts liberal actors to play all the parts, Meghan McCain doubts that it will be an accurate portrayal of what actually happened. Game Change, the infamous bestseller written by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, has plagued anyone directly associated with the 2008 election cycle. The first time I heard about the book was within weeks after Obama was elected—my former press person...

    On Monday, Meghan McCain told Kennesaw State University that she wants Mitt Romney, not Sarah Palin, to be the next president. As McCain explained, "My personal favorite right now is Mitt Romney. I like that he's not so radical. I like that he has really, really played his cards right, almost perfectly since the last election" (as reported by Marietta Daily Journal). McCain's endorsement may be a double-edged sword for Romney. On the one hand, her endorsement is a boon because she chose him over her own father's running mate. And McCain enjoys a devoted following among independents, moderate Republicans...

    Meghan McCain said Sunday that she is prepared to “kick Obama’s ass the next election.” Speaking at the Miami Book Fair International to promote her book, “Dirty Sexy Politics,” the daughter of Sen. John McCain expressed an interest in working as a Republican “strategist.” “I've already had people interested in me working, which is unbelievably flattering,” McCain said. “I want to go out and do it all over again with somebody else -- I want to go get a Republican elected. I want to kick Obama’s ass the next election and get a Republican elected.” She added that she will...

    It seems that every time one sees Meghan McCain anymore, someone is inevitably going to ask her what she thinks of something Sarah Palin has said or done or is talking about doing. Even though Senator John McCain's daughter has been cautiously open about her feelings about the former governor of Alaska and what she meant to her father's 2008 bid for the presidency, it is evident to most that she thinks the Palins are nothing short of white trash. But Meghan McCain realizes just how powerful Sarah Palin has become, and she is very indirect with her comments regarding...

    New York (AP) - When Meghan McCain said on national TV recently that Senate GOP hopeful Christine O'Donnell "is seen as a nut job," the reaction from the right was swift and furious, with critics bashing everything from McCain's lack of experience to her judgment to, well, her anatomy.So now that she's had time to reflect - after all, she does call herself "a work in progress" - would she like to tone it down a notch?Um, no."I DO think she's a nut job," the very uninhibited, 26-year-old daughter of John McCain said in an interview this week.
