    Steve Schmidt, an ex-Republican strategist who worked for President George W. Bush and the late Senator John McCain, has slammed President Donald Trump and his administration for its "corruption." "The corruption is just unbelievable. And if you look back to the Republican convention, Joe, when we talked about it at the time, the chants of lock them up—what I said about it at the time was it was banana republicanism," Schmidt told MSNBC host Joe Scarborough during his Morning Joe show on Monday. "And the descent from the American republican into banana republic territory with all of this stuff has...

    It’s not often that the women of The View come to an agreement, but on Monday’s show, each co-host voiced similar concerns about President Trump’s reaction to the impeachment inquiry he’s facing after a whistleblower called attention to his dealings with the president of Ukraine. Over the past two days, Trump has tweeted exhaustively about the allegations against him, demanding to meet the whistleblower, suggesting that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff should be arrested for treason and sharing a quote warning that his impeachment could cause a “Civil War-like fracture.” Meghan McCain agrees. Speaking on Monday’s episode of The...

    Cindy McCain, the widow of the late Sen. John McCain, said on a podcast released Wednesday that the Republican Party is "excluding people for the wrong reasons" and is no longer "the party that my husband and I belonged to." When McCain was asked if Democrats have a chance to win Arizona in 2020, she said she "really can" see the southwestern state going blue. "We have, on my side of the aisle, on the Republican side, we see a local party in Arizona that's not functioning well. And it's excluding people. And it's excluding people for the wrong reasons,"...

    Meghan McCain told Democrats they should stop talking about impeaching President Trump and just start the process. "Unleash the kraken," the 34-year-old co-host of The View said Tuesday. "Because honestly, if you’re not going to listen to Nancy Pelosi about the political implications of this, just impeach him then. See what happens politically." "I'm sick of hearing everyone bitching about it," she added. McCain also blasted her fellow hosts during the segment for acting as if they actually thought Trump is a unique threat compared to previous presidents. "Let me counter that just one second. I’ve watched a lot of...

    Meghan McCain has some thoughts about President Trump’s canceled meeting with leaders of the Taliban. This morning on The View, the conservative co-host absolutely skewered the “secret” Camp David summit, which Trump revealed (and then promptly canceled) in a series of tweets on Saturday. McCain described the Taliban meeting as “the dumbest” idea out of “all the bad crap things” Trump has done, adding, “If that ended up happening, I would create a coup.” News of the secret Taliban meeting first surfaced on Saturday night, when Trump tweeted, “Unbeknownst to almost everyone, the major Taliban leaders and, separately, the President...

    The Atlantic on Monday published a lengthy account of the Trump family’s rise, political aspirations and, allegedly, the infighting between Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. including suspicions of planted stories about the other. That reporting has been enthusiastically denied by the White House, where Ivanka works as a senior aide to her dad, President Donald Trump. Discussing the story on Tuesday’s episode of The View, however, co-host Meghan McCain said she trusted what it showed, calling it “illuminating.” But she said she wasn’t as moved to empathy about the family as co-host Abby Huntsman. “I found myself feeling sorry...

He was the GOP’s presidential nominee in 2008.Describing today’s Republicans as “not the party of Abraham Lincoln … nor the party of Ronald Reagan,” McCain said the political characteristic that most defined her husband — bipartisanship — is virtually absent from the American political...

    Former President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili opens up over the disappointments, betrayals and deals made in the run-up to the 2008 war. This is a full transcript of the exclusive interview the former president of Georgia gave IWPR. IWPR: Looking back at things from a decade-long perspective, do you think the West has learned any lessons from the 2008 war?

    The View has become more toxic than ever and morale among staffers is at an all-time low - and it's all due to Meghan McCain, insiders have exclusively told DailyMail.com. The 34-year-old conservative is at the root of discord behind the scenes at ABC's long-running daytime talk show, earning her the nickname 'Manic McCain!' by producers for her inappropriate outbursts on screen and off. McCain's spats with co-host Joy Behar, including calling her a b***h on live TV and accusing Sunny Hostin of leaking negative stories about her, have reached such a boiling point that group Hot Topics meetings have...

    "View" co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain found themselves at odds after Goldberg pushed back on the idea that former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's hearing was a complete flop for House Democrats. "They got what they needed," she told ABC's Dan Abrams on Thursday. Abrams had just portrayed the hearings as a failure for Democrats, whom he said needed Mueller to provide a public display for his report findings. Goldberg acknowledged that Mueller's report already detailed concerns surrounding obstruction of justice but indicated the former special counsel's testimony was important to capture the public's attention on the issue. "All people...

    President Trump in a new book reportedly takes aim at Republican leaders including former President George W. Bush and the late Sen. John McCain (Ariz.). In the book, "American Carnage: On the Front Lines of the Republican Civil War and the Rise of President Trump," by Politico Magazine chief correspondent Tim Alberta, Trump said he "brought the [Republican] Party back" after it was in "big trouble," Axios reported early Wednesday. Trump reportedly attributed the party's previous failures to his predecessors, including Bush, who "caused tremendous division ... tremendous death and tremendous monetary loss" during his presidency by focusing on foreign...

    The US Navy acknowledged Friday that a request had been made regarding the USS John S. McCain in relation to President Donald Trump's visit to Japan, but said the ship ended up remaining in its normal configuration. The statement continues a saga stemming from emails exchanged between the White House and lower-level US Navy officials about keeping a warship named for the late Sen. John McCain's father and grandfather out of sight ahead of the President's trip. "A request was made to the U.S. Navy to minimize the visibility of USS John S. McCain, however, all ships remained in their...

If there is a finger still moving at the end of it, you will ruin your chances in 2020 but you better do this well if you’re going to do it.” Almost immediately, co-host Whoopi Goldberg interjected, letting viewers know that McCain “doesn’t mean” that Democrats need to actually shoot the president. “I don’t mean literally!” McCain exclaimed. “I’m so sorry!” She continued: “Oh my God!

    President Donald Trump insisted Thursday he had nothing to do with keeping the USS John S. McCain hidden from the site of his weekend speech in Japan. He said whoever had done so was “well-meaning.” “I wasn’t involved. I would not have done that. I was very angry with John McCain because he killed health care,” Trump said, referring to the late senator’s deciding vote that killed a Senate GOP bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act. “I was not a big fan of John McCain in any way, shape or form,” Trump continued in comments to reporters on the...
