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!”

Republican lawmakers ask judge to destroy smoking gun documents proving GOP’s white supremacy

Published

on

Republicans on Monday sought a court order to block damning documents from being used against them in a lawsuit.

"North Carolina Republican lawmakers on Monday asked a court to make sure the files of the now-deceased GOP strategist Tom Hofeller are destroyed, or at least kept secret, instead of being used in a high-profile gerrymandering lawsuit," the Raleigh News & Observer reported.

"The filing comes after the groups behind the lawsuit, including Common Cause, accused Republican lawmakers of making false statements in court in a previous gerrymandering case, when the state’s 2011 maps were ruled unconstitutional," the newspaper noted. "That blockbuster accusation made national headlines and was, it said, based on Hofeller’s files which had been secret until recently."

Published

President Donald Trump on Monday evening again lashed out at The New York Times for reporting on his Russia policy.

"The story in The New York Times about the U.S. escalating attacks on Russia’s power grid is fake news, and the failing New York Times knows it," Trump argued in a tweet sent after 10 p.m.

"They should immediately release their sources which, if they exist at all, which I doubt, are phony," he continued.

"Times must be held fully accountable," he demanded.

Trouble appears to be brewing between President Donald Trump and the cable news station he loves: Fox News.

In a tweet Monday night, the president lashed out at the network over its polling and called it “fake news’ — an epithet he usually reserves for mainstream outlets:

Media Matters for America Senior Fellow Matthew Gertz, who has previously noted that Trump appears to record news segments and watch them a few hours later, suggested that the president appeared to be reacting to an earlier segment from Special Report with Bret Baier. The segment showed that, even according to Fox News’ polling, Trump trails every single leading candidate in the Democratic field in head-to-head matchups.
