‘Unhinged’ Meghan McCain hurls obscenities at The View’s executive producer in front of audience: report

Published

on

Meghan McCain’s job is safe on “The View” — although producers and her co-hosts are growing increasingly tired of her antics.

Sources told the Daily Mail that McCain blew up at the show’s producers in front of the studio audience after moderator Whoopi Goldberg had to restart a segment Tuesday after she confused a law professor with a Justice Department official.

McCain confused Warren Binford, a Willamette College law professor who described horrific conditions at child detention facilities, with Sarah Fabian, a Justice Department lawyer she described as a “holdover from the Obama administration.”

Goldberg ended the segment and intended to restart it after a commercial break, but sources said McCain lost her cool and shouted profanities at the production crew.

“Meghan became unhinged!” said a source with the show. “She screamed, ‘This is some bullsh*t! What are you producers good for?'”

The source said some of the producers ran over to calm her down — “as usual” — but that didn’t work.

“Before they could, she turned to the show’s executive producer Brian Teta and said, ‘You motherf*cker, how could you let this happen to me?'” the source said. “All of this happened in front of the live studio audience.”

Co-host Sunny Hostin had to issue a legal note later in the show, clarifying the difference between Binford and Fabian: “Two different women, two different topics.”

McCain interrupted to admit the mistake was hers: “I screwed up. Thank you for fixing it, Sunny.”

Sources from the show said ABC’s human resources met with McCain after the live broadcast to discuss her language toward Teta, but sources from the show said they don’t expect any action to be taken against her because she has a powerful ally.

“Top ABC News executive James Goldston is Meghan’s biggest fan,” the source said. “Despite what she’s done to morale behind the scenes at the show and despite the viewer feedback on her being dreadful, he’s enamored with her family legacy.”

“At this point,” the source added, “Meghan is starring in the talk show version of ‘How To Get Away With Murder.'”

An ABC News spokesperson told the Daily Mail that McCain’s outburst toward Teta was “playful and nothing more.”

Mississippi Republican who lost to Democrat by 14 votes files request for state House to void the election and declare her the winner

Published

on

On Thursday, Mississippi Today reported that state Rep. Ashley Henley, who lost her bid for re-election to Democrat Hester Jackson-McCray by just 14 votes in November, has filed a request for the GOP-controlled state legislature to overturn the results of the election and seat Henley for another term.

Henley cites what she claims are several irregularities in voter signature collection, and "missing" ballots. "There were irregularities that happened, absolutely, documented, very much so that bring into question the legitimacy of the election results," said Henley said. "That is without question."

Trump’s campaign manager mocked for proudly sharing poll that suggests Dems will keep the House in 2020

Published

on

On Thursday, President Donald Trump's campaign manager Brad Parscale posted a poll that was meant to warn Democrats off of their impeachment efforts, by showing how it was hurting their prospects in a competitive House race.

Specifically, the "confidential" poll showed freshman Rep. Kendra Horn (R-OK) down seven points against a generic Republican, and impeachment opposed 52 percent to 45 percent:

Nancy Pelosi is marching members of her caucus off the plank and into the abyss.

Impeachment is killing her freshman members and polling proves it.

Two House Democrats push a clever plan that calls Republicans’ bluff on their Biden attacks

Published

on

Democratic Reps. Katie Porter of California and Max Rose of New York introduced a clever plan this week that will expose whether Republicans’ criticisms of former Vice President Joe Biden in the Ukraine scandal reflect good faith — or if, as many assume, they are just a shameful distraction and a bluff.

The lawmakers announced a bill on Wednesday called the Transparency in Executive Branch Officials’ Finances Act. It has two key components:

First, it would require all politically appointed executive branch officials, as well as the president and the vice president, to “disclose any positions they or any members of their extended families hold with foreign-owned businesses, any intellectual property they own that is protected or enforced by a foreign country, and whether any members of their families have stakes in companies that engage in significant foreign business dealings.”Second, it will “require the President and Vice President to disclose their tax returns for the previous five taxable years and prohibit political appointees from accepting payments from foreign entities.”

What’s clever about the proposal is that it latches on to two important issues, creating a wedge for Republicans. As part of the GOP’s defense of President Donald Trump in the Ukraine scandal, Republicans have argued that the president’s patently corrupt efforts to get a foreign country to investigate Biden, a political rival, were legitimate because the former vice president’s son created a conflict of interest by taking part in business in Ukraine.
