During Wednesday’s episode of “The View,” co-host Meghan McCain went on a rant against Democrats, saying that they don’t care about border security and also “smear” the people who do.
“I see people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doing her own rebuttal, which by the way was far more concise than Chuck and Nancy on Rachel Maddow last night, and she was basically demonizing border agents and I.C.E.,” McCain said. “The problem is whether liberals like it or not, border security is a big issue for Americans. It’s one of the reasons why Trump got elected.”
“I don’t think anyone has any problem with the border security, I don’t think that’s the issue,” Whoopi Goldberg replied, as McCain talked over her. “It is the wall that I think the Democrats are screaming about.”
“It’s now become one of the trends on the far left that is coming towards the middle,” McCain insisted while making a snippy remark when Sunny Hostin disagreed.
But McCain’s claims were quickly shut down by her colleagues. Joy Behar brought up Donald Trump’s zero-tolerance policy, which led to thousands of families to be separated. That’s when McCain tried to blame former president Barack Obama for the separations.
“Separating children was not under Obama, he didn’t separate families,” interrupted both Behar and Hostin.
“What I’m trying to tell you is if Democrats want to win in 2020, don’t demonize people that want harder border security,” McCain began shouting. “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a huge voice in the party.”
“She’s not a huge — please stop there,” Goldberg insisted as a visibly angry McCain continued ranting. “She’s not a huge voice in the party and we have to go.”
