Former cohost on the ABC talk program, one of the most prominent. “The View”It was a life changing experience.
Meghan McCain (the daughter of Republican Senator John McCain) and Ben Domenech announced the birth of a second child.
“We are overjoyed to welcome our new daughter Clover Jade McCain Domenech on Thursday morning. Thank you all for the well wishes – we are all blissed out happy, healthy and exhausted!”The latter “The View”Instagram: Cohosts. “’Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.’”
McCain reported the news about the birth of her daughter clover at The Daily Mail where she is a columnist.
“Yesterday morning, we welcomed our newest addition, Clover Jade McCain Domenech, to our family!” she said. “Ben and I are overjoyed to introduce Liberty to her baby sister and start this new adventure as a family.”
“Meghan’s strength and love for our daughters is boundless. I feel so blessed that her and Clover are both doing well and I cannot wait for our entire family to meet our baby girl,” her husband, Domenech, said.
In February of 2022 McCain made news when she weighed in on the Whoppi Goldberg scandal regarding comments she made on the Holocaust.
To recap, On the show, Goldberg said that the “Holocaust isn’t about race… it’s about man’s inhumanity to man.”
Co-host Ana Navarro attempted to correct her when she said, “But it’s about white supremacists going after Jews.”
But Goldberg, as she often does, interrupted her cohost, talked over her, and insisted that “these are two white groups of people! The minute you turn it into a race it goes down this alley. Let’s talk about it for what it is. It’s how people treat each other. It doesn’t matter if you’re Black or white, Jews, it’s each other.”
She then went on to apologize for what she said, first on Twitter.
“On today’s show, I said the Holocaust ‘is not about race, but about man’s inhumanity to man.’ I should have said it is about both. As Jonathan Greenblatt from the Anti-Defamation League shared, ‘The Holocaust was about the Nazi’s systematic annihilation of the Jewish people — who they deemed to be an inferior race.’ I stand corrected,”Sie said.
“The Jewish people around the world have always had my support and that will never waiver. I’m sorry for the hurt I have caused. Written with my sincerest apologies, Whoopi Goldberg,” the host said.
And she began the next show with another apology for what she had said.
“Yesterday on the show I misspoke. [The Holocaust] is indeed about race, because Hitler and the Nazis considered the Jews to be an inferior race,” she said.
She continued: “Now, words matter, and mine are no exception. I regret my comments and I stand corrected. I also stand with the Jewish people,” she said.
But McCain said that the fact that Whoopi only got suspended after her ‘half-assed apology’ shows that there are two sets of rules for conservatives and liberals.
“I was lectured to thousands of times on The View, there is a belief that ‘cancel culture’ is really ‘accountability culture’ among the woke left,” she said in her column for The Daily Mail
“Which seems to be a belief that’s quickly forgotten whenever it’s Whoopi who has to be held to account.
“I am not calling for Whoopi Goldberg to be fired, if only because I don’t believe there is any universe where she could possibly do anything that could get her fired – she is the crown jewel of The View and a pop culture icon,” the former host said.
“But I hope this can be used as a teachable moment to explain to millions of Americans why conflating the Holocaust as something that is specific and limited to ‘white people’ is insane, ahistorical, and anti-Semitic,”Sie said.
