Meghan McCain’s debate advice for Trump draws instant laughter from View co-host

“The View” co-host Meghan McCain’s suggestion for President Donald Trump didn’t go over well with her colleagues.

The conservative McCain argued that Trump and his Democratic opponent Joe Biden should essentially switch roles in next week’s presidential debate to change their public perception.

“Both of them sort of have to switch roles and switch personas in this debate,” McCain said. “Biden has to come out looking really tough and strong and like he cares about public safety and the radical [left], you know, examples that President Trump [is] using in his rallies have not taken over the party, and it’s a safe space in the Democratic party for moderates.”

While Biden, who earned McCain’s mother Cindy McCain’s endorsement, must overcome the Fox News-Republican Party narrative, the conservative co-host argued that Trump must act like a different person than voters have seen for the past five years.

“Trump, on the other hand, has to look like a normal, compassionate, empathetic human being,” McCain said, and co-host Sunny Hostin guffawed. “Whether or not he’s capable of doing that, I don’t know because he hasn’t been very effective so far.”

McCain heard her co-host’s laughter and tried to explain herself.

“It’s true,” she insisted. “He has to get some of what Joe Biden has, look like he’s empathizing with pain. He’s done a poor job. People over the age of 60, he’s losing voters in this demographic at an astounding rate, and I think it’s because they look at him and see a president who doesn’t care if they die from the coronavirus.”

Officials in Wisconsin are warning of delays in counting votes after 13,500 ballots were misprinted.

"The state Supreme Court declined to take a case Thursday that would tell officials in northeastern Wisconsin how to deal with misprinted ballots, raising the prospect of lengthy counting delays as clerks fill out thousands of replacement ballots on Election Day," Patrick Marley reported for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Thursday.

‘Signs of a coming conflict are everywhere’: Why a 2nd Civil War would be quite different from the 1st

Published

on

In 2020, the United States has been rocked by everything from a deadly pandemic and a brutal recession to civil unrest in a long list of cities to fears that violent conflicts will occur either on Election Day or after the election. Journalist Matthew Gault, in an article published by Vice this week, wonders if the political divisions in the United States run so deep that the country is headed for another civil war.

Describing the unrest that has occurred this year, Gault writes, "People are marching in the streets, aligned with two ideologically distinct factions. Many of them, overwhelmingly from one side, are armed, and violence and death has resulted when these two sides have clashed. The signs of a coming conflict are everywhere."

A fake ‘intelligence staffer’ crafted the groundwork for the Trump conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden

Published

It's unclear why President Donald Trump and his allies have chosen to attack Vice President Joe Biden's last living son as a key tenant to the 2020 reelection instead of focusing on his opponent himself. But according to a well-researched NBC News report by Ben Collins and Brandy Zadrozny, the "documents," actually came from a fake person that never existed using a profile photo created by an artificial intelligence face generator.

Months ago, there was a fake "intelligence" document about Hunter Biden that popped up online along with tons of "files" from a supposed laptop. None of it was real and it has all been dismissed by Trump's own associates as fake. But now it's being revealed that the company behind the effort was a fake "intelligence firm" called Typhoon Investigations, researchers and public documents revealed.
