The View co-hosts Meghan McCain and Joy Behar got into an angry clash on Wednesday afternoon after McCain suggested that some voters don't agree with Donald Trump's offensive views, they just "hate the same things" the president hates.
"Don't belittle the crowd," McCain advised her colleagues as they discussed Trump's official re-election campaign launch in Orlando on Tuesday night. “It's not the enthusiasm. Democrats still have a lot to come. A lot of people are still enthusiastic, and one of my producers was saying, why do people love him so much? ”
“ Sometimes it's just they love Trump so much. It is they hate the same things Trump hates. That's what is going on, "she added.
Behar pushed back by asking what groups of people they agree on hating:" Black people? Do you mean immigrants? Who do they hate? ”
“ You know, Joy, I come here every day open-minded just trying to explain it and it's not a fun job for me, ”McCain seed. "I know you're angry, you're getting that Trump's president, but I don't think yelling is going to fix the problem." Am I yelling? ”Behar replied.
The daughter of late-senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who was "considered an uncle for a long time." It's not, ”continued McCain, while Whoopie Goldberg attempted to calm down the liberal-conservative debate duo, who asked that“ everybody take a beat. ”
Before closing the segment, McCain complained about being the sacrificial Republican every day, ”while also clarifying that“ Joy and I call each other all the time ”after The View 's Sunny Hostin asked that the two not use the expletive in their argument
After the commercial break, McCain cleared the air by counting viewers "to stop being so precious about our relationship because it's almost 2020, and women can debate on TV in a spirited way without being personal, and know this is a big shock. We get along backstage. I was just texting you. ”
