The View producers torch Meghan McCain and her husband in scathing tabloid tell-all

Published

on

Producers from “The View” questioned co-host Meghan McCain’s recent sick days — which they suspect were timed to avoid talking about her father-in-law falling under an ethics investigation for his work in the Trump administration.

McCain took off two days from the ABC daytime talk show for an unspecified illness, and producers think she was faking sick after father-in-law Doug Domenech was named in an ethics complaint against six Interior Department officials, reported The Daily Mail.

“She took off to avoid having to talk about her husband’s dad, and everyone knew it,” one producer told the tabloid.

The elder Domenech allegedly continued interacting with the conservative think tank Fueling Freedom Project at the Texas Public Policy Foundation, where he had worked before President Donald Trump appointed him as assistant secretary for Insular and International Affairs at the Cabinet-level agency.

Behind-the-scenes sources from “The View” told The Daily Mail that McCain was embarrassed by reporting on the complaint, especially since her name was frequently listed in headlines about the matter.

“She comes on the show daily and says she hates Donald Trump, and has benefited from the president’s attack on her late father,” one source said. “So for it to be revealed that her father-in-law not only works for the president, but is now under an ethics investigation, she was humiliated and conveniently sick for two days.”

She returned to the show in time to interview newly announced Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, a close friend of her late father, Sen. John McCain.

“View” sources pointed out that the 34-year-old McCain rarely discusses her husband, Ben Domenech, on the show, although the other co-hosts openly discuss their spouses and relationships.

Domenech is the co-founder and publisher of the right-wing website The Federalist, which infamously has not revealed the source of its funding.

“She always says that she likes to keep her private life private,” a source said, “but if you notice she never has any issues talking about her late father, her mother Cindy McCain or her 107-year-old grandmother Roberta.”

The show source suggested that McCain seems embarrassed by the husband she married in November 2017.

“She doesn’t like talking about her husband because he has a very checkered past,” the source said.

Domenech was forced to resign from the Washington Post in 2006 over plagiarism claims, and he was forced to publicly apologize for describing Supreme Court Justice nominee Elena Kagan as the “first openly gay justice.”

Two other publications removed some of Domenech’s articles from their websites over revelations that he was paid $36,000 by conservative lobbyist Joshua Trevino to write propaganda pieces Malaysian government without disclosing the payments.

Show sources made no secret of their displeasure toward McCain.

“Let’s face it, she’s a hypocrite!” a source said. “She touts conservative values and principles, but I guess those principles apply to everyone except the person she decided to marry. How can you sit at that table and question the integrity of politicians and other newsworthy personalities who come on that show when your husband has a shamefully questionable past?”

The sources clearly sided with McCain’s frequent sparring partner Joy Behar.

“You best believe that the next time she decides to get disrespectful with Joy Behar during a heated exchange in hot topics, Joy will be ready to bring the topic up,” the source said, “and everyone who watches the show knows that the best way to shut Meghan up, is to drop a bag of truth in her lap. She’ll shut down and be quiet the rest of the show!”

Bromance between ‘frantic’ Lindsey Graham and ‘annoyed’ Donald Trump collapses as the Kurds get slaughtered: CNN

Published

on

The growing rift between Donald Trump and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was documented on CNN on Thursday morning with contributor Dana Bash explaining that a "frantic" Graham is now at loggerheads with an equally "annoyed" president.

Sharing a montage of clips showing Trump and Graham taking shots at each other over the Syria debacle that has resulted in one of Trump's biggest defenders quickly flipping to being one of his harshest critics, Bash explained, "Listening to that, it's hard to believe that Graham is one of Trump's most loyal allies."

With Graham on record stating, "It's not about me and him, it's about the country," Bash begged to differ.

Billionaire Trump-loving governor took $125,000 in bailouts meant for struggling farmers: report

Published

on

On Thursday, the Associated Press reported that Gov. Jim Justice (R-WV) received $125,000 in emergency stabilization payments for his farms, as part of the bailout program authorized by President Donald Trump to help farmers avoid losses due to the trade war with China.

Justice, a Trump-loving business magnate who briefly switched to the Democratic Party to run for governor of West Virginia and switched back to the GOP after the election, hardly fits the profile of a struggling farmer. He is worth $1.5 billion, and owns over 50 businesses, including a network of coal mines and the Greenbriar luxury resort, a popular gathering place for Republican officials.

Here’s why Sondland’s testimony is devastating to Trump — whether he wants it to be or not

Published

on

Veteran Newsweek reporter Kurt Eichenwald outlined in a thread that EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland delivered testimony to the House that was devastating for President Donald Trump whether Sondland wanted it to be or not.

"While wrapped in diplomatic-speak and hemming-and-hawing, the statement of Gordon Sondland, U.S. ambassador to European Union, is devastating to Trump and Giuliani," Eichenwald said. "Given the surrounding evidence, either Giuliani has to say he lied to Sondland, or Trump has to be impeached it is important to dig through it, because, while quite clear on most dates, it takes jumping a bit around in the statement to figure out the date of the key event."
