What Meghan McCain told Joy Behar

The “Hot Topics” table was hotter than ever when the co-hosts started talking about politics. McCain was seemingly upset that Bloomberg has been gaining traction and expressed her doubt he could win over Trump.

“I think the idea that [Bloomberg] is going to coast through this… You have to win over the mid-west and coal miners and people that are not attractive to the democratic coalition and Trump has that locked and loaded,” McCain said. “And I’m sorry, a guy that wants to take away your Slurpee, is gonna have a real problem in coal-mining towns!”

“And you know what? A guy who wants to take away your health care is even in worse shape!” Behar fired back.

This was the point where McCain lost it and started throwing low blows towards Behar.

“You know what, Joy? I’ve been right about election stuff and you’ve been wrong,” McCain said. When Behar asked how she was wrong, she said, “you thought Trump was going to lose in 2016 and I didn’t.”

When Behar reminded McCain that Hillary Clinton received more votes than Trump, the Republican pundit tried to belittle the former.

“Does that make you feel good at night? He’s still in the White House. It’s a ridiculous thing to say every single day on this show. He is president, move on!” McCain shouted.

“Everyone on this panel repeats themselves, ok?” Behar replied.

“You’re trying to make yourself feel better, it’s weird,” McCain then said.

“I don’t want to make myself feel better, I want him out!” Behar said sternly to a cheering audience.

Fans go off on Meghan McCain

Fans were not happy with the way McCain handled herself during the debate and how nasty she was with Behar. After the moment aired live, viewers took to Twitter to make their opinions heard about the conservative co-host.

“Can I just say, being passionate women is great. Screaming, being rude, and always talking over your co-hosts isn’t. It’s not fun to watch either. Seriously girl, calm down,” a fan commented.

“Please tell me why Meghan feels the need to scream over Joy and act like she’s the most knowledgeable person on the panel? I’m quite tired of her behavior,” a viewer said.

“I will no longer watch this show because of Meghan McCain. I am so done. All she does is scream like the child she is. She’s not the smartest political pundit she thinks she is. Bring on Ana Navarro for good,” a Twitter user added.

“I seriously don’t understand why The View keeps Meghan on the show. The way she treats people is disgraceful. She is always right (in her mind) and is condescending to anyone that disagrees with her, especially Joy Behar. Please fire Meghan,” another fan tweeted.

“Meghan defending Trump is scary to me. Does she know he hates her father and calls her vicious names?” another viewer pointed out.

“Fire Meghan McCain. She is awful, hateful, and feels her opinion is the only opinion that matters. Let this be her last year on The View,” another Twitter user suggested.

The View airs weekdays at 11 a.m. ET and 10 a.m. CT/PT on ABC.
