Meghan McCain’s not even in NYC — she reportedly went to Virginia to be with her guns

Published

on

Meghan McCain got hilariously fact-checked by a neighbor after calling her Manhattan neighborhood a “war zone,” but it turns out she’s not even in New York City.

The co-host of “The View” has reportedly gone to Virginia because, sources told Page 6, she wants guns during the coronavirus pandemic.

“She isn’t even in the city!” a source told the outlet. “She’s in Virginia at a family home because she wanted to be in a place she could keep guns.”

McCain’s personal representative told Page 6 the source’s claims were “absolutely untrue.”

But McCain herself later confirmed she had left New York at some point during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has killed nearly 17,000 people in the city.

“I am six months pregnant — a gossip organization is about to run a story of where me and my family are currently,” McCain tweeted after Page 6 reached out for comment. “I sent a tweet yesterday based on the news I saw happening in midtown we all have been watching all over different media platforms.”

She then offered her support for the protests that have sprung up across the country after the police killings of George Floyd in Minneapolis, where four officers have been arrested and charged, and Breonna Taylor in Louisville, where three officers involved in the EMT’s killing remain employed and have not been charged.

“I support the peaceful protests, their movement but am absolutely heartbroken about the destruction in the city I have loved since I moved to when I was 18,” McCain tweeted. “It is important to have your voice heard and I hope everyone stays safe and healthy.”

McCain had lamented earlier this week that violence associated with the protests had “eviscerated” her neighborhood, but neighbor Kristen Bartlett, chief writer for TBS’ “Full Frontal,” corrected her assessment — which turns out to have come from afar.

“Meghan, we live in the same building, and I just walked outside,” Bartlett tweeted. “It’s fine.”

These 7 details from the damning Sharpiegate report show it was a dark omen of Trump’s destructive potential

Published

on

While it was dismissed by some as an overhyped media obsession, the presidential scandal that has come to be known as "Sharpiegate" was, in fact, an early warning sign of the truly catastrophic potential of Donald Trump.

The story arose out of Hurricane Dorian, which began its deliberate march up toward the East Coast of the United States in late August and early September of 2019. It ravaged the Bahamas, and officials feared the damage it could inflict stateside. But then came a Trump tweet on Sept. 1, and later comments to reporters, in which he warned that Alabama was in the storm's path. He said it was among the states "most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated."

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis finally caved in to pressure to release the actual numbers of coronavirus cases in the state's hospitals.

Until Friday, DeSantis had refused to reveal the true numbers, leaving many in the state unaware of just how bad the cases were. According to the Orlando Sentinel, a whopping 7,000 Floridians are in hospitals hoping they survive the virus.

"The data, which for the first time breaks down the number of people in the hospital with coronavirus, was promised by the state two weeks ago," the report explained.

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace asks why Bill Barr is trying to ‘erase Robert Mueller’s investigation’ before November

Published

on

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace returned to television Friday night to address what she called outright corruption in the Trump White House after another example of the president trying to escape the consequences of the law.

Wallace began by calling Attorney General William Barr nothing more than Trump's "bouncer."

"He has been intellectually overestimated from day one. He is not a mastermind of anything," said Wallace. "He is Donald Trump's body man."

She cited "well-sourced spin" coming from the White House Friday evening, because there were people that she said were "enlisted" with trying to talk Trump out of commuting Roger Stone's sentence. She anticipated that Barr and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone may huff and puff about the act, but that they won't quit over it. "And we should remember their names forever. They are all accomplices in the greatest corruption of one of the most sacred powers."
