Meghan McCain had an even worse weekend than Madison Cawthorn
How was your weekend? It was probably better than Meghan McCain‘s.Meghan–who is John McCain’s daughter, in case anyone forgot–was completely obliterated by Steve Schmidt on Twitter.It all started when the Washington Examiner reported that her new book “Bad Republican” has only sold 244 copies since its hardcover release last month.Related: Meghan McCain outdoes herself yet again in latest attempt at being basicWhen Schmidt pointed out this piece of factual information, Meghan responded in typical Meghan fashion… by liking a tweet someone wrote falsely accusing him being a pedophile.And that’s when John McCain’s 2008 campaign manager went off, declaring the former The View co-host a “spoiled rotten, entitled bully” and “fourth generation wannabe” who is wholly “unaccomplished” in life.“Everyone who has ever worked with Meghan McCain from ABC, The View, Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg and a thousand others have seen the unfiltered version of what the whole of America has seen,” Schmidt wrote, recalling the time he had her kicked off the McCain campaign’s plane in 2008 “because of her outrageous behavior.”But that was just the opening act.“I was the first adult that Meghan McCain ever encountered that she heard the word NO from,” he continued in a new thread about the then-24-year-old. “I told her she was unimportant and that the Presidential election wasn’t about her.”From there, Schmit detailed how Meghan’s own father “was appalled” by her behavior on the campaign trail.

Florida Republicans Threaten Disney With Legal Retribution For Condemning 'Don't Say Gay' Law
The Hollywood Reporter.Florida lawmakers, led by Governor Ron DeSantis, are now threatening to roll back the Reedy Creek Improvement Act of 1967 which gives the company authority to govern itself, including the ability to impose taxes, provide emergency services, and adopt ordinances on the land it owns for its operations in the state.And that’s not all. According to Popular Information, politicians in Washington D.C., including Indiana Congressman Jim Banks along with 16 other GOP members, are saying they won’t support the extension of the copyright for Mickey Mouse, efforts that some are calling political blackmail.This is all despite Disney pledging $300,000 to politicians who backed “Don’t Say Gay” and that it only publically condemned the law after it passed and under massive pressure from its LGBTQ+ employees, including public call-outs on social media and walkouts.Disney CEO Bob Chapek’s initial response to the then-bill was that the company would essentially be staying out of the fight — continue to donate to politicians who supported the bill while also “creating a more inclusive world is through the inspiring content we produce, the welcoming culture we create here, and the diverse community organizations we support, including those representing the LGBTQ+ community.” Following the backlash from within the company for this stance, Chapek issued a company-wide memo stating, “Speaking to you, reading your messages, and meeting with you have helped me better understand how painful our silence was.

Named for George Washington, the first U.S. president, the state was made out of the western part of the Washington Territory, which was ceded by the British Empire in 1846, in accordance with the Oregon Treaty in the settlement of the Oregon boundary dispute. The state, which is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean, Oregon to the south, Idaho to the east, and the Canadian province of British Columbia to the north, was admitted to the Union as the 42nd state in 1889.
