Meghan McCain drowned in laughter after complaining about people leaving White House for reality TV

Published

on

Meghan McCain drew unintentional laughter after complaining that one-time White House press secretary Anthony Scaramucci might join the cast of a reality TV show.

Scaramucci’s wife Deidre Ball is reportedly being considered to join the cast of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New York City,” and her husband — who served 11 tumultuous days in President Donald Trump’s administration — briefly appeared as a contestant CBS’ “Celebrity Big Brother.”

“As a loyal ‘Housewives’ watcher — tonight at 9, I have it DVR’d, I’m very excited — it is a perfect cast right now, they don’t need her,” McCain said. “It is a perfect cast. I don’t want any new people joining. I’m totally fine, and I don’t think we should be rewarding bad behavior.”

She questioned Scaramucci’s motives for joining the Trump administration, and she complained that his post-government reality TV career diminished the White House.

“Anthony Scaramucci joined our government to only be on TV,” McCain said. “If this is someone using the White House to be on reality television, I don’t support it. I don’t like it.”

Host Whoopi Goldberg burst into laughter, and was quickly joined by the audience.

“You know why I’m laughing?” Goldberg said, through guffaws.

“Did I say something funny?” McCain said.

“People using reality TV to get on the White House,” Goldberg offered, and then co-host Sunny Hostin started laughing, too.

McCain still didn’t seem to understand.

“I love reality TV,” McCain said. “I’m a ‘Housewife’ fanatic. I would like to keep the separation of reality TV and government.”

“Too late,” Goldberg said, and the other three co-hosts joined in. “Too late.”

McCain hung her head, finally understanding the laughter.

“This whole administration is one big reality show,” co-host Joy Behar said, and McCain insisted she knew and then laughed herself.

“That’s what made me laugh,” Goldberg said. “We’re talking about the biggest bonehead on reality TV — we’re in it.”

McCain then tried to steer the topic back to “Real Housewives.”

“They don’t need her,” she said. “It’s a great cast, except for Barbara. I don’t like her as much, but it’s okay.”

Trump’s ‘indefensible’ comments just made it ‘much much harder’ for GOP to win in 2020: Ex-RNC Chair

Published

on

President Donald Trump's latest anti-Semitic trope is going to make it "much much harder" for Republicans to hold control of the White House in 2020, the former chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC) explained on MSNBC on Tuesday.

Michael Steele was interviewed by MSNBC's Chris Matthews on "Hardball."

"There’s a long-respected leader of what's called Jewish Republicans, Matt Brooks -- I've known him for a long time -- this guy has the job of helping get votes, Republican votes, in the community, which generally votes Democrats," Matthews noted. "What is he going to deal with this baby, this assault on religious identity and trying to claim you must vote your group?"

Washington Post editorial board calls Trump too cowardly to pass background checks in scathing editorial

Published

on

The Washington Post just published a scathing editorial saying that President Donald Trump is far too cowardly to fight for gun safety laws or any kind of gun reform.

For a brief few days, while Trump was on vacation, he was willing to say that background checks needed to be tightened. But once he was on the phone with the National Rifle Association, everything changed. It isn't the first time. When Trump promised action after the Parkland, Florida massacre he said to the faces of parents who'd just lost their children. The next day he reneged. Now Americans are back at step one, where the next shooting is around the corner and even if police are on scene to take the shooter down in less than 60 seconds, people will still die.

Trump’s tumbling support among ‘the poorly educated’ may crush his 2020 prospects: report

Published

on

When Donald Trump famously declared, “I love the poorly educated” during his 2016 campaign, it was obvious that he was taking a much more populist (or rather, pseudo-populist) approach than Republican presidential candidates were typically known for. And white males without college degrees continue to be a key part of the president’s base. But Washington Post columnist Aaron Blake, analyzing an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released on Monday, stresses that when Trump is up against a “generic 2020 Democrat,” he finds himself struggling with non-college educated white women.
