Meghan McCain calls Trump’s CNN Town Hall an ‘absolute electoral disaster for the GOP’

As liberal heads continue to explode over Donald Trump’s Wednesday appearance on CNN’s Town Hall, RINO Republican Meghan McCain believes they should be celebrating.

The former co-host of “The View” called Trump’s crowd-pleasing performance an “absolute electoral disaster for the GOP.”

In an opinion piece for the Daily Mail that positively drips with hatred for the former president, McCain sarcastically begins with a round of applause.

“If last November’s midterm elections were the final nail in President Donald Trump’s political coffin – then Wednesday’s CNN Town Hall might have been his resurrection,” she writes. “Smirking and pointing fingers, Trump had that crowd of New Hampshire Republican and undeclared voters eating out of his hand.”

She notes that there were “scant few” hard questions posed by CNN moderator Kaitlan Collins and claims Trump “absolutely steamrolled” her.

“This was the bad orange man in his element!” she exclaims. “Call the moving company, Melania. You’re headed back to the White House.”

“Well, not so fast,” McCain cautions. “Republicans, please don’t be fooled. We know how this ends – in absolute electoral disaster for the GOP.”

McCain goes on to highlight with disdain the very moments that had Republicans cheering. And, as American Wire News reported, there were a lot of them.

As McCain notes, Trump pulled no punches with his take on E. Jean Carroll’s civil lawsuit against him,

“Her dog or her cat was named ‘Vagina,'” he said. “The judge wouldn’t allow to put that in all of these things. But with her, they could put in anything.”

And he didn’t back down on his belief that the 2020 election was stolen from him.

“I think that when you look at that result and when you look at what happened during that election, unless you’re a very stupid person, you see what happens. A lot of the people in this audience and probably maybe a couple that don’t, but most people understand what happened,” Trump said.

“That was a rigged election, and it’s a shame we had to go through it. It’s bad for our country,” he stated. “All over the world, they looked at it and they saw exactly what everyone else saw. Even if you look recently with the 51 intelligence agents — that made a difference. If you look at the FBI and Twitter, call it Twitter Files, it made a big difference.”

And he defended his actions on January 6, indicating that he would pardon the J6 prisoners.

“I am inclined to pardon many of them,” he said. “I can’t say for every single one because a couple of them probably got out of control.”

“The town hall was a chaotic mess,” McCain writes, “and libs are furious.”

She accused Trump of being “unmoored from the truth.” Fact-checking him in real-time, McCain writes, “must have felt like trying to nail Jell-O to the wall” to Collins.

“But all that being said, if I was a Republican presidential hopeful, I would be very nervous,” she states. “After all, this right-leaning audience in the critical first-in-the-nation primary state was hanging on his every word.”

Still, according to McCain, Republicans “shouldn’t start popping the champagne just yet.”

“This is a recipe for the GOP disaster,” she argues.

McCain explains:

Allow me to drag us back to reality. Do not forget what happened in the midterms. Nearly every single Senate candidate that Trump endorsed lost.

No, he wasn’t on the ballot, but all his MAGA disciples, from Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake on down (if one can go any lower) failed. And to add insult to injury, Lake won’t stop moaning about her ‘stolen election.’

If there’s anything that makes moderate, and swing-voters flee in horror, it is this rigged election myth.


“Trump may win the nomination,” she predicts, “but he will lose the general election.”

In her estimation, he is “setting Republicans up for defeat.”

For one thing, the former president believes Americans should do away with mail-in ballots and vote on paper ballots.

“Is he insane?” McCain asks. “More than 37.6 million Americans, including 10 million Republicans and 9 million unaffiliated voters, voted by mail in 2020. Mail-in voting is not going away, but he’s discouraging his own voters from taking part.”

She called Trump’s claim that his former Vice President Mike Pence could have legally rejected the state-certified results of the 2020 election, “ridiculous”

And then there is Trump’s “misogyny.”

“Trump’s misogyny has only become more pronounced and utterly shameless,” McCain writes. “He defended his bizarre claim that women allow famous men to sexually assault them. It’s actually one of his greatest hits.”

Actually, what Trump did was point out the obvious: “People that are rich, people that are powerful” often “do pretty well in a lot of different ways.” Anyone who has ever seen a groupie at a rock concert knows this to be true, but McCain calls Trump “deranged” for saying it.

“Can you imagine any female swing-vote, who would not be completely and totally alienated by remarks like these?” she asks readers.

No, Trump’s captivating time on CNN was proof for McCain that he is “incapable” of “appealing to more of America.”

And because of that, he “cannot win in 2024.”

The Republican In Name Only closed by invoking President Biden’s oft-repeated slogan, “Don’t compare me to the Almighty. Compare me to the alternative.”

“It’s one of the most pathetic campaign slogans in political history – an admission that he knows America is repulsed by him,” McCain writes. “But he’s right.”

“If the Republican ‘alternative’ is Trump,” she states, “then we’ll lose — again. Bigly.”
