McCain’s Last Stand

Kathy Griffin was big news this week.  First she revealed that she’d been addicted to narcotics.  Then there was a suicide attempt.  But the big news is she has lung cancer.  Happily, the cancer was stage one and operable.  Prognosis is good for our favorite funny lady.

While discussing Griffin on The View, Meghan McCain referred to Kathy’s old jokes about Clay Aiken – whom Meghan described as “one of my closest friends in the entire world”.  “I don’t like her.  I’m never going to like her,” said McCain.  Less than three hours later, Aiken Tweeted the following: “Love and prayers for a speedy recovery to my dear friend @kathygriffin.  Selfless and gracious, she even hosted a fundraiser for my congressional campaign years ago.  Get well soon Kathy.  I miss your jokes!”  So, we know where he stands.

There was one other noteworthy incident that tainted McCain’s final week on The View.  She sat out an interview with Mary Trump, which in itself was no big deal – one or more co-hosts often skip these remote interviews.  But when Trump pointed out Meg’s absence, McCain couldn’t help herself.  She Tweeted: “There is no ‘good’ Trump family member to me.  Continue to wish they would all just leave me and my entire family the fuck alone.”  Mary, naturally, had to respond: “I have plenty of respect for Meghan’s parents.  It’s too bad she can’t take responsibility for her own actions.  That’s the problem with entitlement – it’s dangerous.  And so is our failure to hold powerful people accountable.”  And so ends the McCain era on The View.
