Meghan McCain Just Tried Normalizing Trump, It Didn’t Go Well – Watch:

In another heated episode of “The View,” co-host Meghan McCain tried normalizing Donald Trump while also claiming that restaurants need to stop harassing White House employees.

McCain, who admitted that Trump had attacked her family publicly, said that he still falls into the historical framework of presidential norms.

McCain’s comments come after Trump’s Supreme Court decisions.

“I’m also Republican, I don’t consider myself in a cult, I don’t consider myself a sycophant,” McCain said. “I don’t suffer from ‘Trump derangement syndrome.’ I didn’t lose my mind and can’t call balls and strikes when I see them.”

McCain said she could overlook the Trump administration’s human rights violation because they are making decisions she agrees with.

“His two Supreme Court decisions, big wins for us, and he has made decisions that I agree with,” McCain said.

“When you are talking about vitriol, I’m sorry — my family has been at the direct target of that, and I understand that as well,” she continued. “But as commentators, we have to call balls and strikes like we see them, because if you start turning into Trump, as some commentators in my own party have done, and you become him, everyone stops listening to each other one way or the other, and we have to be intellectual.”

Co-host Sunny Hostin then claimed that Trump should take more responsibility for setting the tone his apologists decry from the left.

“The tone has to come from the top,” Hostin said. “I don’t think that we have seen this type of vitriol before. I think this is unchartered territory. I think this is new, and quite frankly, I would be more comfortable with the Republican Party if they stood up, if leadership stood up and said something to this president.”

Co-host Joy Behar said the Republican Party would never do that, and Hostin agreed.

“Let’s face it,” Hostin said. “This president not only is unhinged on Twitter, let’s never forget that a woman died at that tiki torch-holding rally (in Charlottesville), and he said there are good people on both sides, and that, for me, set the tone.”

McCain went on to say that it’s unacceptable to treat Trump associates like Sarah Huckabee Sanders was treated earlier this month at the Red Hen restaurant.

“It’s now socially acceptable to go up to people who work in the White House, which includes people in my family, and harass them in public,” McCain said. “That could escalate easily. Steve Scalise, Gabby Giffords, if we’re learning nothing, it’s a dangerous world, and that messaging from Democrats is not going to fly in the real world.”

Hostin said harassment was possibly illegal, and McCain quickly pointed out that was the word Waters used — but her co-host refused to get sidetracked.

“Harassment is inappropriate, but I do believe that we can never forget that it is our constitutional right to speak up, to speak out and to protest,” Hostin said. “It is our constitutional right.”

McCain suggested it was harassment to confront Trump officials in restaurants, but Hostin said Americans had a right to do that.

“Protest peacefully, speaking your mind, speaking your voice is not illegal, and in fact, it is our right,” she said.
