‘The View’: Sunny Hostin Shuts Down Meghan McCain After She Interrupts Her
Meghan McCain is at it again on The View and this time she had a small tiff with co-host Sunny Hostin. The ladies were talking about Kamala Harris pulling out of the presidential race when things heated up. Tensions always rise when the daytime hosts tackle politics and this time was not the exception.
Hostin brought up the point that she didn’t understand how Harris was polling higher than Amy Klobuchar and the latter was still in the run. McCain chimed in saying that Klobuchar’s “statistical numbers were trending upwards” while Harris’ were doing the opposite.
“Actually… if you look at the polling…,” Hostin rebutted.
“I look at the polling every day, everybody knows that,” McCain snarked back.
Hostin went on to cite polling numbers from all the other candidates and when Joy Behar asked if Harris had less campaign money, McCain tried to interject.
“Can I finish, please?” McCain asked.
“I’m actually not finished speaking but that’s fine,” Hostin clapped back and shut down her conservative co-host in the process.
After this remark, McCain pouted, crossed her arms in disapproval and said, “just forget it.” Behar couldn’t help but laugh at McCain throwing, yet, another tantrum on-air.
You can watch the exchange starting at the 2:30 mark below.
Fans react to Meghan McCain’s latest fit
The View promotes debate amongst its viewers and after the segment aired on TV, fans were quick to add their opinions.
“Tired of Meghan McCain being disrespectful to Sunny. She talks over her and makes rude remarks while Sunny is speaking. Abby feels she too can treat Sunny the same way. It’s laughable that they tried to argue with her about the things [women of color] have to face in our society,” a fan tweeted.
“Sunny is actually putting [Meghan] in her place now and standing up to her,” another fan added.
“Why must Meghan always resort to [being] snarky when someone says something to her? That is such an irritating habit of hers that she does continuously,” a viewer said.
“Meghan McCain, you seriously crossed your arms? Seriously? When will the TV tantrums stop?” another viewer questioned.
“I’m always amazed at how full of herself [Meghan] is,” a Twitter user wrote. “She actually seems to think her opinion is the only one that matters, much like how she thinks only the middle of the country matters. It’s great when she sits there like a bump on a log not talking.”
Recurring spar with Joy Behar
McCain has a recurring spar with Behar, who also serves as a moderator in absence of Whoopi Goldberg. While the former is a conservative, the latter is a liberal and they both clash on ideas often. Despite their differences in politics, there is a true friendship behind-the-scenes.
“It really hurts my feelings!” McCain said on Entertainment Tonight of reports there is bad blood between her and Behar. “It genuinely hurts my feelings because our dressing rooms are next door to each other and you and I have the same emotional reaction to things — sometimes in different ways — but we’re both upset equally, the equal amount of the same things. And I wish people would give us a break, for real.”
The View airs weekdays at 11 a.m. ET and 10 a.m. PT/CT.
