Megan McCain "I love Biden in a way that I loved my father" "Elle"

Megan McCain's personal bond with Joe Biden leaves her in the precarious position of being a Republican mulling the prospect of formally endorsing a Democrat. “Even if I did endorse him, it would hurt him. I love Biden in a way that I loved my father.” https://t.co/3KsvZI1aQo

— ELLE Magazine (US) (@ELLEmagazine) July 25, 2019

-Meghan McCain did an interview for"Elle" magazine.

McCain- The audience of "The View" boos me. It's a very liberal audience and they are very vocal. People are always looking to turn you into something".

-McCain- "The explosion in the culture war, has made me more conservetive. No Republican is good enough for a certain group of people. All Republicans are evil to a certain segmant in the media and you become more tribal and territorial of your people and what you represent.

- Joe Liberman on McCain-" She speaks with a kind of intensity and while she is not a troll, she's built a career playing the role of the token deployed to rile up leftist".

-McCain""If I were sitting on Fox , I'd be considered leftist".

- Van Jones on McCain-"You can't take your eyes off her because she's authentic. She's really being herself".

-McCain tries not to read Twitter too much. "I think that when you read enough criticism , you start censoring yourself. Success is not censoring myself".

-When " The View " came calling in 2017, McCain did not think much of it." I didn't take the offer seriously because no shade to the show, It wasn't the show I wanted to work on. A carousal of people going on and off, It didn't seem to have a lot of direction". Her father advised her to take the job. "He said" You can't ever give up the opportunity to work with Whoopi Goldberg".

-McCain on her role on "The View". " My presence on the show has been nobody's going to bully or talk down to me or going to pull the kind of s**t that's been pulled on a lot of people in this chair". Later on in the conversation."I should be better at being less reactive".

- On her "Late Night with Seth Myers" appearance"I thought it was going to be fun and what you expect a late night show to be. The way he talked to me can speak for itself, but I'm not a snowflake and I'm not precious. I can take it". She says Jay Leno's show was "kind and open".

On Myers-" I don' t know if he could have gotten away with speaking to a liberal woman the way he spoke to me. I don' think he wanted to have a conversation, I think he just wanted to lecture me.( McCain was givin a pre interview where the talking points were presented)

- On her husbands reaction to the interview"I will say I was asleep when he tweeted. I don't think it's productive to go on a tweet storm, but we love each other very much".

- On her role on the right on tv." I understand it's very jarring to be confronted by a woman like me who represents so many things people don't agree with and the problem is there is only one of me!

-McCain says her concern over Anti- Semitism intensified around the time of the Women's March when one of the event's co -chairs refused to condem Louis Farakhan.

- McCain said in part that Omar was traffickings Anti-Semitic language with a tweet about " All about the Benjiman's"about Israel that some took as Ant-Semitic. People condemned McCain for likening a mass shooting to a couple of insensitive tweets.

- McCain-"I wasn't suprised. Bigotry is called out on my side, as it should be. The alt- right is disgusting. I think they are very dangerous. But I don't understand why someone like Omar should get a pass. I stand by everything I said".

-McCain" She (Omar)doesn't scare me. I actually would love if she came on the show"

-McCain on the 2020 Democratic runners- "My husband amd I woke up and talked about Pete Buttigieg and we spent 15 or 20 minutes talking about how why he's resonating and if he's taking votes away from Beto or Booker".Elle mentions that Buttigieg's spokesperson , Lis Smith said he might be taking some campaign strategies from her father's playbook." She said that"? McCain squeals. McCain" I have to look that up. He's a great candidate in a lot of diffrent ways. I like that he's talking to the middle of the country and talking about religion. It's fascinating that we are having a conversation about him as a white male and compleatly leaving out the fact that he is gay".

-McCain on being a gay advocate- "I think a lot of activism stems from love".( the magazine spoke with, as they put it, McCains longtime gay best friend, Josh Rupley who gives her this pep talk when negativity hits" Bitch you're Meghan McCain and you have to get up and walk the walk")

- When asked what she would do if she fell in love or became close friends with an undocumented immigrant.McCain-" I think anytime you become close with anyone, it can change your worldview. I don't know any illegal immigrants. I know people who have immigrated here. I 'm not as hard-line on immigration as T***p".

-McCain on her Hillary Clinton jab- She says she was drinking the night before. She said " I call her crooked Hillary!  and "I hate Hillary Clinton". McCain- "I apologized on tv and said that I was contributing to the polarization of this country. I really regret saying that. She was friends with my dad. It's really not fair".

McCain on Biden- Elle says their bond leaves her in a precarious postion of being a Republican mulling the prospect of formly endorsing a Democrat. McCain"Even if I did endorse him it would just hurt him. I love Biden in a way I loved my father. I keep trying to think of what my dad would do in this situation. I want to see what Biden's message will be. If he's the person I know he is It's going to be very tough to remain neutral.

- McCain's mother Cindy- I give her the same advice each time. A lot of this stuff is in the moment and choose wisely when you begin to criticize. Don't get angry. Never get angry".

-McCain on her time frame for"The View" " I'm innately a fighter, but I do question if there will be a certain time where it just won't be worth being screamed at all day. I don't know, Maybe I'm having a bad week".

ONTD Roundup

PoA - trio backs

"It: Chapter Two" is pretty fucking long, and will have an even longer director's cut

Director Andy Muschietti confirmed in a recent interview that the upcoming release of "It: Chapter Two" will be a fun 2 hours and 45 minutes long (though they insist that it doesn't ~~~feel~~~ long). PLUS! The film's producer Barbara Muschietti (sister of the director) confirmed that there will be a director's cut that didn't make the theatrical cut but merits being seen:

"We have some amazing scenes that didn't make it into the movie. You have to make choices sometimes and some things cannot be in this theatrical release but are definitely worthy of people seeing them at a later date."

THR's Review of the Dora Movie Called Out for Being Creepy to Lead Actress

Collapse )

The Hollywood Reporter's review of the upcoming Dora and the Lost City of Gold is drawing attention on film twitter because of the uncomfortable way the male critic writes about its lead, Isabel Moner. His whole review seems preoccupied with its leads appearances and how the characters have been aged up to appeal to a more "hormonal demographic" and yet the film lacks a certain bite. And then it closes with the following:

What keeps things alive, up to a point, is the imperturbable attitude of the titular heroine, who is invested with try-and-stop-me spirit by Moner, who's actually 18 and looks it despite preventive measures. The same goes for Wahlberg, who's 19. There's a palpable gap you can't help but notice between the essentially innocent, borderline-pubescent nature of the leading characters and the film itself, and the more confident and mature vibes emanating from the leading actors. The director seems to be trying to keep the hormones at bay, but there are some things you just can't disguise, perhaps human nature first and foremost. Dora seems committed to projecting a pre-sexualized version of youth, while throbbing unacknowledged beneath the surface is something a bit more real, its presence rigorously ignored. To be believed, this story should have been set in 1955.

billy porter>>>>> i really appreciated everything he contributed to this roundtable explicitly discussing his struggles and the struggles of so many actors and creators of color. the roles he's become best known for are roles he had to fight for and create for himself. also, i highly recommend watching the drama actress roundtable for niecy nash alone, which i would have included but it's over two weeks old. feel free to turn this into a post about what shows you're currently watching or looking forward to watching.
also also, someone please make me a gif of richard madden at 40:20-40:23, thank you in advance.

Woman Dies While Trying To Reach "Into The Wild" Bus In Alaska


A 24-year-old hiker has died in Alaska while trying to reach the abandoned bus made famous by the book and film Into the Wild. Several people have died trying to reach the bus.

The bus is a pilgrimage for many hikers, because it is the place where a nomad named Christopher McCandless died. Played in the film by Emile Hirsch, McCandless became a wanderer after graduating college, but died of exposure in the Alaskan wilderness.

McCandless, pictured at the bus in 1992

"Dilbert" Creator Advertises App that sells the stories of mass shooting survivors to the press

Because we live in a dystopian hellscape, why not make some money off the mass shootings every day?

Scott Adams has an app where victims can charge people to talk with them about the event - while he takes a % of the profits. People everywhere have denounced his ass-backward idea

During a Periscope video, the Trump supporter claimed many of his critics on social media were just taking part in an organized campaign against him.
This isn't the first time he's tried to advertise his app after people have died. When a helicopter pilot was killed in June, he offered 500$ to anyone to talk about it.

No one has taken him up on either offer. But he says it won't stop him from trying again.

Céline Dion’s inner circle fears ‘boy toy’ has too much influence over her

According to Page Six, Celine's friends fear that her “best pal,” backup dancer Pepe Muñoz has too much influence on her.

One source told Page Six:

“Pepe is like her boy toy who is really trying to take over. He’s isolating her and people are feeling it. She’s in love with this guy and listens to everything he’s saying. People go to him when they have questions. He’s fully taken over. The only people around her now [are] Pepe, the hairdresser and the stylist"

Multiple sources told Page Six that Pepe helped orchestrate the exit of some of Dion’s senior team, including former stylist Law Roach.

“It’s crazy. She knows he’s gay and is accepting of it. She needs someone close to her and she fell in love. He’s turned into a René type.”

YouTubers Tana Mongeau, famous for her failed convention TanaCon, and Jake Paul, known for being Logan Paul's brother, were married in Vegas yesterday in front of friends, other Youtubers, and thousands of viewers online who paid $50 a pop to watch the wedding happen live. As you can probably guess, it wasn't a typically black tie event. When the two messiest Youtubers get married for a boost in views, it's a masterclass in trashiness.

44 Fantastic Paperbacks to Pick Up Now

Goodreads rounded up some of the biggest titles that have recently been released in paperback. Broken down between fiction and nonfiction.

Severance by Ling Ma

About: Candace Chen, a millennial drone self-sequestered in a Manhattan office tower, is devoted to routine. With the recent passing of her Chinese immigrant parents, she's had her fill of uncertainty. She's content just to carry on: She goes to work, troubleshoots the teen-targeted Gemstone Bible, watches movies in a Greenpoint basement with her boyfriend.

So Candace barely notices when a plague of biblical proportions sweeps New York. Then Shen Fever spreads. Families flee. Companies cease operations. The subways screech to a halt. Her bosses enlist her as part of a dwindling skeleton crew with a big end-date payoff. Soon entirely alone, still unfevered, she photographs the eerie, abandoned city as the anonymous blogger NY Ghost.

Candace won't be able to make it on her own forever, though. Enter a group of survivors, led by the power-hungry IT tech Bob. They're traveling to a place called the Facility, where, Bob promises, they will have everything they need to start society anew. But Candace is carrying a secret she knows Bob will exploit. Should she escape from her rescuers?

A send-up and takedown of the rituals, routines, and missed opportunities of contemporary life, Ling Ma's Severance is a moving family story, a quirky coming-of-adulthood tale, and a hilarious, deadpan satire. Most important, it's a heartfelt tribute to the connections that drive us to do more than survive.
