How conveniently timed. In less than a week following the Nov. 8, 2016 General Election in which her octogenarian father was reelected to another 6-year senate term, Meghan McCain was named a permanent co-host of “Outnumbered” a Fox News weekday morning show. The theme is to showcase a rotating panel of leggy female commentators, including co-host Harris Faulkner and Sandra Smith — along with one male panelist. The topic is, of course, politics.
In an example of Fox News’ supposedly “fair and balanced” coverage, while Meghan was just an occasional panelist and in the midst of John McCain’s senate campaign, he was the “outnumbered” male seated alongside Meghan.
But his hypocrisy was on display in this interview (30-second video clip) with Fox News host Neil Cavuto, as ingrate John McCain sarcastically bites the hand that fed him as he compares the network to Vietnam radio propagandist “Hanoi Hannah.”
Like her father, coarse and salty-tongued, the newly glammed Meghan McCain, 32, is an outspoken opponent of Donald Trump. Unlike dear old dad, she wasn’t thrilled with Hillary, either, saying she voted for Independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin. A deep thinker, she authored a whiney “memoir” in 2010 titled, “Dirty Sexy Politics.”
On Tuesday, with the topic of discussion President-elect Donald Trump’s secretary of state pick, “Can Rex Tillerson ease critics’ concerns?” Meghan vacillated between sounding as though daddy was whispering negative talking points in her ear piece to getting testy with David Webb, the male guest.
As we noted in “The like totally inane Ms. McCain,” Fox News’ GOP go-to woman only registered as a Republican in 2008 as a surprise Father’s Day gift during what became John McCain’s failed race for President of the United States.
