Meghan McCain Makes Whoopi Laugh While Joking About Reality TV and the White House
Columnist Meghan McCain unintentionally made Whoopi Goldberg laughed while talking about individuals leaving White house for a reality TV show.
In a recent episode of "The View," McCain, 34, discussed the latest cast member of the hit reality show, “Real Housewives of New York." She likewise addressed the likelihood that the spouse of one-time White House press secretary Anthony Scaramucci, Deidre Ball, may join the cast.
“If this is someone using the White House to be on reality television, I don’t support it. I don’t like it.”
“As a loyal ‘Housewives’ watcher — tonight at 9, I have it DVR’d, I’m very excited — it is a perfect cast right now, they don’t need her," the outspoken daughter of late Senator John McCain said.
She added. "I don’t want any new people joining. I’m totally fine, and I don’t think we should be rewarding bad behavior.”
McCain then suspected Scaramucci’s real reasons for joining the administration of President Donald Trump. She then accused that his post-government reality TV career diminished the White House.
“Anthony Scaramucci joined our government to only be on TV,” McCain said. “If this is someone using the White House to be on reality television, I don’t support it. I don’t like it.”
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg burst into laughter and McCain didn’t get the joke.
"Did I say something funny?” she asked.
Goldberg replied, “People using reality TV to get on the White House."
At that point, co-host Sunny Hostin began giggling, as well. McCain still didn't appear to get it.
“I love reality TV,” she said. “I’m a ‘Housewife’ fanatic. I would like to keep the separation of reality TV and government.”
“Too late,” Goldberg said. Finally realizing the laughter, McCain hung her head.
"I know, it sucks," McCain responded and after that giggled herself.
Goldberg explained, “That’s what made me laugh. We’re talking about the biggest bonehead on reality TV — we’re in it.”
Meanwhile, ahead of Father's Day, McCain took to Twitter to ask her followers to share stories of their deceased fathers.
"Anyone else out there who is dreading Father’s Day this Sunday - I feel you, and have been trying to come up with something positive to do Sunday. So, I want you to feel free to share #deaddadsclub stories on my timeline and I will share it. Maybe we will all feel less alone?" she tweeted.
McCain was close to late Senator McCain, who passed away of brain cancer in August of last year. Since his passing, she has been sharing several photos and videos in remembrance of her dad.
