Shortly after issuing an apology for “aiding the agenda” of racist rhetoric towards Asian Americans, Meghan McCain is back on The View questioning the “qualifications” of Asian American workers. She just can’t seem to help herself.
Neither can her hairstylist, but we won’t even get into that here.
During a segment on Wednesday, McCain bemoaned the financial relief provided to Black farmers in the recently passed American Rescue Plan.
“We’re going to a place where even if people need money, even if people are qualified to get into Ivy Leagues, race and gender is more important than your skill qualifications, the content of your character,” she said. “It is not what Martin Luther King Jr. preached. I think this is a very, very slippery slope.”
“I think this is just the natural progression of identity politics,” she continued. “The View is 25 years old next year. We’ve only had one Asian American host co-host this show. So does that mean that one of us should be leaving at some point because there’s not enough representation?”
“We’re talking about is identity politics more important than qualifications for a job? And I think that’s a question going forward that the progressive left is going to have to reconcile.”

Other than being the Princess of Arizona, of course.

Is she volunteering to leave? Alex Wagner would make a nice fit to the show.

I’d be totally OK with Meghan being replaced ?? I’m happy she’s volunteered

Well she is qualified to wear ridiculous hair styles.

Omg! Lisa Ling was 10x’s more qualified than Meghan to be on The View.

She says defiantly from a seat she occupies due to her family name beneath her appropriated hairstyle

Interesting. If that’s the case – is name recognition more important than job qualifications? @MeghanMcCain got famous from blogging about her Dad’s presidential run. No prior media experience before.

What are the qualifications for being a host of the View? Asides from being the daughter of a war criminals and consistently having the dumbest opinions in America

“Obviously I’m qualified, do you know who my daddy is?”

“If more Asians had dads who ran for President, we’d hire them.”

The makeup artist may harbor some resentment too.

White woman who got her job because of who her daddy was now has concerns about the "qualifications" of non-white people seeking the same job ok sure Jan

So much for her “apology.” Glad I didn’t hold my breath.
Meghan had zero qualifications to be on TV.
She was hired becuase at the time her father was on the committee that oversaw television networks in the country and Network executives wanted to kiss up to him.
That is it, and yet Meghan is going to go on and on about minorities who have worked to get where they are not having qualifications?
She isn’t the moderate she claims, a real moderate would never have married a right winger who runs a bigoted website. A website by the way that was full of anti-Asian “China-Flu” type of articles.
Meghan is part of all of that.
Oh great, another conservative troll invoking MLK; while totally misunderstanding his message.
She is the very embodiment of “identity politics”! Does she not see this? Her only qualification is that she’s a White millennial daughter of a wealthy heiress and one of the most famous Republican politicians and war heroes of the last 50 years. Nothing she’s done in life, nothing she’s created with her own brain or hands, comes close to the fame she arrived with courtesy of her father.
Were she a White middle-class, working class or poor woman with no accomplishments and without her late father’s fame and her mother’s immense wealth, whatever her party affiliation, does anything think she’d be on The View? Would she even make the cut at FoxNews? Talk about entitlement and privilege–Meghan, wake up!
Medan needs to stop letting her husband do her hair and makeup. And , Gurrrrrl, 80’s Joan Collins wants her shoulder pads back.
Oh how I wish I had said that !!
The View has a Megan McCain problem. She’s the crazy woman from down the street who’s making life increasingly stressful for those who are pretending she’s not crazy. Her half-baked thoughts don’t contribute to the discussion, they just make the show difficult to watch — so, first there’s her crackpot opinion and then there’s everyone else trying to act like she’s not spouting drivel. How stressful!
Megan’s Q-score couldn’t possibly justify renewing her contract, and I sure hope they don’t. And sorry to go there, but she looks awful, and I don’t think its because of Zoom.
She’s throwing this out there so that she can blame “diversity quotas” for when she eventually gets canned for having a years-long association with the Racist Right that is impossible to hide. She can’t even keep her lips off the dog whistle for a week.
Only reason she isn’t on Fox News instead of The View is because she’s too fat. Otherwise she would not be at all out of place as a regular contributor to Tucker Carlson. This “qualification” argument is straight out of his playbook.
Besides which, there are no real qualifications for entertainment. The only qualification is that you can attract and maintain an audience, and corporate doesn’t care whether that’s an accomplished journalist, a 13-year old who blew up on TikTok, or a freaking Puppybowl. They just care about keeping the ad revenue high.
But The view ratings spiked when she was away on maternity leave.
Was her idea to look Like Riff Raff from Rocky Horror? If so spot on!
She’s playing a scripted role on an Actor’s Guild show-and making inflammatory statements to draw viewers and drive up web clicks-but she is correct about the left weaponizing race as a talking point. It’s all they have, the DNC is a complete and utter train wreck that has been ineffective since the Bush Era. Notice they are making no actual changes at the local level save for “voting rights” that will benefit minorities. They could have passed the funding with no racial restrictions or mandates, they chose to weaponize it for social engineering purposes. Just another day in Social Engineering Paradise
. Notice also these stunts are being pulled at a time when even the DNC members who oppose Biden are requesting investigation into his and Hunter Biden’s ethics and legal violations in Burisma.
What utter nonsense. Go back to the Daily Wire website.
Do you drink?
This is one of the many screenames for the right wing troll Monkey1, Roy Ajax, TheREALTruth, etc.
So of COURSE you’re here defending an unqualified trust fund baby who complained that minorities aren’t hired because they aren’t qualified.
That is your agenda, you always defend racists and bigots.
Here are her “qualifications” to be a co-host on The View news program
She has a BA in Art history and was fired from her dad’s presidential campaign.
What Mad Max sh*t is this?
Who in their right mind gives a rats ripe ass about the ‘view’ and the ultra liberal ‘it’s my view or the highway’ hags always on the rag called ‘hosts’ and who really cares what this insignificant attention whore has to say? Really most people have more important things going on in their lives to worry or care about that waste of time and intelligence called the ‘view’
Wow, you switched screenames so you could post AGAIN?!
You really love to pull out all the stops when a racist needs to be defended.
Did you know Meghan’s hairdresser is a gay man who doesn’t really like Meghan? Go figure, LOL
