The View’s Meghan McCain calls in sick after getting brutally mocked online all weekend

Published

“The View” co-host Meghan McCain called in sick after she endured criticism and mockery all weekend for her comments on anti-Semitism.

During a debate Thursday about allegedly anti-Semitic comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), McCain tearfully invoked her father’s Jewish friend, former Sen. Joe Lieberman, after co-host Sunny Hostin said her own grandfather was Jewish.

“I take this very personally,” McCain said. “I would go so far as to say I probably verge on being a Zionist as well.”

Jewish artist Eli Valley posted a cartoon of McCain crying as she held a six-pointed Star of David and poured matzo ball soup mix into a bowl, alongside books entitled “The Jewish Race Explained” and “A Christian’s Guide to Seder.”

McCain denounced the cartoon as “one of the most anti-Semitic things I’ve ever seen,” and she was widely criticized and mocked online.

“What does anti-Semitic even mean to you?” tweeted Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig, a former Columbia classmate. “He’s a Jewish cartoonist who has spent his career examining Jewish identity, Zionism & anti-semitism. If this is the most anti-Semitic thing you’ve ever seen, you haven’t spent any time examining those issues yourself.”

On Monday, she joined host Whoopi Goldberg, who’s been recovering from double pneumonia for weeks, in taking a sick day.

“We are down two hosts today, people are getting sick,” said host Joy Behar, and co-host Sunny Hostin admitted she didn’t feel well, either.

“Oh my god, I blame it on Trump,” Behar joked. “Whoopi is still getting better and will be back here soon, and Meghan is also out sick, so we wish her a speedy recovery.”

Trump welcomed Russia’s Sergey Lavrov to the White House — to humiliate us all

Published

on

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.

WATCH: Maddow hilariously recaps Trump’s ‘shenanigans in the Oval Office’ with the Russian foreign minister

Published

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Tuesday examined President Donald Trump's meeting with Russian Federation Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov -- on the same day that the House of Representatives unveiled articles of impeachment against the commander-in-chief.

Following the meeting, Lavrov trolled Trump on the issues of foreign election interference and Trump's habit of revealing classified intelligence.

"Given that, given the way the president is being impeached for having done all those things to Ukraine in and way that undermined our alliance with them and specifically their fight against Russian aggression -- which has, you know, led to a five-year-long war in Ukraine -- I mean given the fact he's being impeached for undermining Ukraine in its war against Russia, this is heck of a day to choose to have the Russian foreign minister sitting on your lap in the Oval Office," Maddow said.
