“Are you Ilhan Omar’s publicist?” – Meghan McCain gets into it with Seth Meyers over Ilhan Omar

Last night Seth Meyers took issue with Meghan McCain bringing up Ilhan Omar’s 9/11 comments on ABC This Week after the latest synagogue shooting, forcing Meghan McCain to defend herself. And it got kinda tense:

Seth Meyers’ main point was that Omar has since “unequivocally” apologized for her tweets, so Meghan shouldn’t be bringing them up any more.

But that’s absurd because Omar’s comments weren’t even the point of Meghan’s comments on ABC This Week. She was responding to the liberal argument blaming Trump for the attacks against Jewish synagogues. Meghan’s point in bringing up Omar’s comments was to point out that Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats refused to hold Omar accountable for her anti-Semitism and that if you’re going to call Trump out for his leadership, you should call out Democrats on this as well. See for yourself.



It was on this basis that Meyers felt the need to defend Omar, which is ridiculous.

At one point Meghan actually asks Meyers “Are you Ilhan Omar’s publicist” because of the staunch position he was taking to defend her.

And she’s also right to ask him if he’d ever defend Trump in this way because you know that would never happen. Even when Trump gets accused of things he didn’t say, has Seth Meyers ever defending him from false accusations?

Erick Erickson also has an intersting point on this:

No vids, just read article about her husband really laying into Meyers on Twitter. Then deleting and still saying Meyers is a hack. He is quite an arsewipe.

The reason none of this ever registers with them is because they’re all moral relativists. Every single one of them.

I’d nearly forgotten that Erick Erickson was still punditing. That’s a minor benefit of leaving twitter last year.

Megan McCain and her mom endorsed Joe Biden for 2020.

Strange days.

AvatarK-Bob I had noticed that endorsement! Like Father, like Widow & Daughter, I guess. John McCain was a true RINO (Democrat in disguise), so their endorsement of Biden wasn’t surprising or unexpected.

WendzPNWWendzPNW You’d almost think Trump had been attacking John McCain nonstop or something. In reality, John McCain began insulting Trump’s character, so Trump hit back.

Trump was much ruder, by far, to Ted Cruz. But Cruz treated it like rough-and-tumble politics and let it slide. Decency is a conservative value that is very weak in the McCain family.

Your statement about John McCain insulting Trump’s character is true and correct. That’s why I can’t figure out why daughter and wife would endorse a handsy creep like Biden.

Is this meant to be an underhanded swipe at Erickson’s punditry? His podcast has remained on my regular playlist for the last several years. I regard him as a faithful Conservative who calls the issues as he sees them, and who often cites inside the Beltway sources before other sites latch onto them.

Article5COSArticle5COS No. Overhanded. Eric is a squish. I’ve given up on him as a source of information.

Having wrote that, he’s a decent bloke. Nice guy. Just not very consistent.

As for the ABC clip, it’s so irritating that they have to let that one guy have the last word, making a ridiculous point tying the two synagogue shootings together with a common thread that is NOT anti-Semitic wackos, but Trump.

Notice how he’ll only have a shit-wit like McCain on. So it looks like every conservative is a stupid, weak apologist. Would love one of these late night a-holes to put Ben Shapiro or Larry Elder on. They’d get smoked.

I haven’t seen the video because it’s not coming up on my screen (I have two identical videos but not that one). But if she defended Trump she pi**ed on daddies grave.

kong1967kong1967 Just going by the article, my feeling isn’t so much that she was defending Trump, but that she was on the offensive with Seth Myers about Omar and simply threw out a gauntlet. I don’t believe she would ever defend Trump.

No one wins on POS shows like this. Because democrats are apparently physically, emotionally and intellectually incapable of dealing with truth, or being honest or even applying logic and reason. They are rabid, venomous beasts that surrender to their baser, animal instincts. They (and in the broader sense – ALL Leftists) are hypocrites and liars, cheats, thieves and insane.

Every leftist position can be boiled down to an attempt to escape the responsibility of their actions. Every one.

Leftists expend more effort avoiding responsibility than it would take to act rationally in the first place.

You’re correct Chris. Just want to add one thing and that is not only do they want to avoid responsibility for their stupidity they LOVE to blame everyone else for it. It’s always “Insert name here” fault and if a conservative happens to be handy then so much the better!

I can’t stand watching tv unless I record programs first. These late-night dipsticks are one really good reason why. They are always promo-ing Colbert and Samantha Bee, etc on the cable channels I watch.

If I can’t fast forward past their diseased garbage, I won’t watch. I’d rather have to sit through every minute of catheter and colostomy bag ads than 2 seconds of Cole-bert’s lying piehole.

AvatarK-Bob That’s why I’m a champion at channel surfing during commercials……..well, most of them anyway. I loved the running of the bulldogs and a few others. I don’t have a means to record, and I find most TV krap anymore.
