“The View” co-hosts Meghan McCain and Joy Behar got in a heated argument after the conservative host called out liberals that are opposing Donald Trump’s pick to replace Supreme Court Justice, Anthony Kennedy.
“There were people with signs that say we hate ‘blank,’” McCain said, complaining that protesters didn’t even care who Trump picked. “The left does themselves a disservice when they don’t even know who it’s going to be yet.”
Behar then reminded McCain that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell did the same thing when he blocked former President Barack Obama’s pick to replace Antonin Scalia.
“The left is taking a page from Mitch McConnell’s book,” Behar said.
“The idea that this is, like, a stolen experience, elections have consequences,” McCain said. “Yes, Republicans have three branches of power and we’re getting two more seats on the court — that’s why voting is important. But the idea that we’re living in some totalitarian, fascist country where this was just appointed by a dictator — that’s just a lie.”
Behar then noted that Trump, who is under federal investigation, shouldn’t be allowed to pick a judge who would overlook his case.
“Why would a president who is under investigation by the FBI for obstruction of justice and collusion be allowed to pick a Supreme Court justice?” Behar said. “I’ll be dead — there are many people in this room who will still be alive and need abortions and what-have-you and health care.”
“How dare he be allowed to do this when he’s under investigation?” she added.
