Whoopi Goldberg ‘at her breaking point’ as she struggles to contain Meghan McCain’s meltdowns: report

Published

on

Conservative commentator Meghan McCain, co-host of The View, has recently taken time off from the show. And the other hosts, producers, and viewers are happier without her there, reports the Daily Mail.

McCain’s absence has reportedly pleased Whoopi Goldberg, who is reportedly tired of McCain’s blow-ups and feuding with host Joy Behar.

“Whoopi is at her breaking point with Meghan. She’s been trying to hang in there, especially keep the peace with Meghan and Joy, but we all know she’s about to break,” a source told DailyMail.com.

Meanwhile, staff who work behind the scenes at The View say McCain is uniquely hard to deal with.

“They have survived Rosie O’Donnell, Star Jones and even Barbara Walters. So for Meghan to be causing problems for them, it says a lot about her and really isn’t a reflection on them at all,” a source told the Daily Mail.

Goldberg, unlike McCain, is respectful to producers. “Even on her worst days, Whoopi tries her best to be respectful to the staff. Even if something upsets her or she snaps for some reason, she’ll come back and apologize and explain herself later.”

“The team at The View love working with her. So it’s been extremely hard for her to see Meghan come in and really bring the morale down. All the reports of her being ”cold, icy and unpleasant” are really mild compared to the truth of her personality,” a source told the Daily Mail.

Meanwhile, viewers celebrated McCain’s temporary replacement, Tara Setmayer.

‘#theview – Tara and Ana!!! Adult conversations today!! Gonna miss joy tho,’ wrote @jessica_2630 with a meme of a man dancing.

The View has won 30 Daytime Emmy Awards.

We are witnessing the birth of a movement — and the downfall of a president

They almost always begin to right wrongs: illegitimate wars; decades of discrimination on the grounds of gender or racial or sexual identity; killings of innocents by police or gun-toting lunatics; oppression by governments wielding unequal laws; the deeply embedded legacy of centuries of racism.

They are imperfect. Arising out of rage, they can be unfocused, inchoate, contradictory. Protesting violence, they often involve violence. Protesting oppression, they sometimes oppress by destroying public spaces, small businesses, even entire neighborhoods.

HBO’s Maher taunts Trump fans over president hiding in a bunker from protesters: ‘Is America great enough for you yet?’

Published

on

In his opening monologue on Friday night, HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher both ridiculed Donald Trump and taunted his fans over reports the president was whisked away to an underground bunker to protect him from anti-police brutality protesters.

According to the HBO comedian, "As soon as some shit started outside the White House he went straight to the bunker, five floors below ground. He says he wasn't hiding, he said, I love this, it was more of an inspection -- and he didn't piss himself, he was watering his shoes."

"I tell you, deranged authoritarians and bunkers, always a winning combination," he added.
