SNL’s Meghan McCain Manically Defends Alabama Abortion Ban as ‘the Only Daughter at the Table’ on The View

Published

on

In an SNL parody of ABC’s “The View,” Meghan McCain, played by Aidy Bryant, gave a full-throated defense of Alabama’s full abortion ban, telling her co-panelists, “I’m the only daughter at the table.”

“OK, can I talk now?” she asked. “OK, I am the only daughter at this table. So I have to say, these senators are actually very good and fun guys.”

McCain then complained that her co-hosts were speaking over her, only to have Leslie Jones  — as Whoopi Goldberg — tell her, “No one else is talking.”

“OK, you see, and I’m getting attacked,” the weeping McCain complained before asserting, “And as the person most upset right now, I am right.”

Trump Puts Gettysburg on RNC Speech Shortlist – 4 Years Ago He Was There Complaining About the ‘Rigged’ Election System

Published

on

President Donald Trump still has not decided if the RNC should hold the most important portion of the 2020 convention at the White House or at the site of the Battle of Gettysburg.

The last time Trump visited the site of the Battle of Gettysburg, late October 2016, he “declared that the system is rigged against him, that election results cannot be trusted, that Hillary Clinton should have been barred from running for president, that the media is ‘corrupt’ and that he will sue all of the women who have accused him of sexual assault,” The Washington Post reported at the time.

“Trump also implied that what he called rampant voter fraud could cost him the election and said the media was ‘dishonest.'”

The newspaper added that Trump also spent “more than 13 minutes listing his grievances.”

Trump-Loving ‘True Victim of the Pandemic’ Nikki Haley Slammed for Complaining Her Birthday Popcorn Order Was Late

Published

on

Nikki Haley is once again being widely mocked for a tweet. A few weeks ago it was this tweet, which basically was a very effective ad for Joe Biden:

Now, it’s something far less political – or is it?

Monday morning President Donald Trump’s former U.S. Ambassador to the UN complained about… late birthday popcorn.

This one tweet seems to sum up the opinions of many:

Many mocked Haley for being tone deaf to Trump’s destruction of the U.S. Postal Service.

Many reminded the former Republican governor of South Carolina that we’re in the middle of a pandemic.

Many mocked her for her horrible record or priorities:

Many mocked her for her support of President Donald Trump:

And some, well, just mocked her for being cheap:

‘Angry’ Trump Michigan Voters Admit They Want ‘This Nightmare to End’ in November

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s Michigan supporters are abandoning their 2016 pick for Vice President Joe Biden as the election comes closer.

In a series of interviews on MSNBC Sunday, revisited voters they’d met earlier in the election cycle in Kent County.

Katey Morse and her husband were both working full time, and their kids were in school back in March, but things quickly changed as the coronavirus spread throughout the country. Luckily, she and her husband didn’t lose their jobs, but they, like many parents, are struggling to do virtual school for their kids.

“I’m turning into more of an angry person than I’ve ever been in my life,” she said about how she feels politically, noting that it makes her sad. “I’ve just got a countdown to November now, and I’m hoping we’ll wake up from this nightmare we’re in.”

She later explained that she was attracted to Trump in 2016 because he was a businessman who she thought would make the right decisions. But she’s now watching business leaders make those right decisions and Trump making the wrong ones.

Hal Ostrow once called himself “politically homeless,” but now things have changed for him too.

“I think we’re seeing it on a daily basis — this delegitimizing of pillars of our society, of institutions of government, everything from COVID testing to choices we’ve got to make for our kids. And there is just a void of leadership at the top,” he said.

Ostrow also explained that the “law and order” message from Trump isn’t really effective because the kind of “law and order” Trump wants isn’t resonating with suburban voters.

Morse agreed, saying, “we’re not 1950s housewives anymore. We’re educated, strong women, who are trying to raise families while working full time out of the home. So, to make a statement saying, we’re going to be — to defund the police and we’re going to be overrun in our communities by all these bad people, it’s ludicrous!”

Jerry Stepanovich was a Trump voter who was parroting the language the Trump used about the “witch hunt” against him. Now things have changed.

“Some of his statements, some of the buffoonery,” he said as a reason for his diversion from solid Trump supporters. “Some of his actions and also when he said, ‘we’re going to knock this right down,’ that’s — that ain’t gonna happen.”

When asked what he would have done differently, he said Trump’s “blasé” attitude claiming “yeah, we’ll take care of this,” is what Stepanovich found questionable. “The bravado — that’s kind of irking me right now.”
