On Wednesday, prominent Democrats, including former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, and CNN received bomb packages. During an episode of “The View” later on in the day, co-host Meghan McCain compared the bomb packages to Republican lawmakers and figures getting “heckled at restaurants.”
“I’ve been texting with my former colleagues at CNN, and they’re scared,” said co-host Sunny Hostin. “One former colleague said, ‘This is what happens when the president calls you the enemy of the people.’ I thought, my gosh, you know, the tone is coming from the top.”
Former Fox News host who no co-hosts on The View, Abby Huntsman, tried claiming that there was no political motive because there wasn’s enough evidence. But co-host Joy Behar fired back saying that she had seen enough.
“Fox News hasn’t gotten a bomb yet,” Behar said. “I don’t want them to get a bomb, by the way.”
“Every time [Trump] says things like the press is the enemy of the people, his entire party needs to stand up against him and say something,” Behar added. “Mitch McConnell, where is he? He’s the leader of this party.”
That’s when McCain claimed that Republicans are receiving the same treatment by getting heckled at restaurants.
“He’s getting harassed and heckled when he goes out in public to have dinner with his wife,” she said. “So are we.”
Here’s how McCain’s co-hosts reacted to her claims:
