This is terribly enjoyable – the left-wing harpies of The View freaked out at Meghan McCain offering even the tiniest bit of correction to their extremist rhetoric on the border wall and Trump’s primetime speech.
Watch below – it starts at about the 4:45 minute mark:
Fox News had a transcript of much of the brouhaha:
“So the crisis at the border, according to a Morning Consult political poll conducted Jan. 4 through 6, found 79 percent of all voters in the country think that there is a crisis or problem with illegal immigration on the southern border,” McCain, 34, began (via Mediaite). “[Daily Wire editor] Ben Shapiro had the best tweet, I think. All Democrats have to do is not be crazy to win 2020, because we have so much crazy right now.”
McCain then brought up Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and the freshman House member’s appearance on Tuesday’s “Rachel Maddow Show” broadcast following Trump’s address, saying the 29-year-old congresswoman was “basically demonizing border agents and ICE.” (ICE is the acronym for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.)
“When I see people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doing her own rebuttal – which, by the way, was far more concise than Chuck [Schumer] and Nancy [Pelosi], on ‘Rachel Maddow’ last night – and she was basically demonizing border agents and ICE, the problem is whether liberals like it or not, border security is a big issue for Americans,” McCain said, adding, “It’s one of the major reasons why Trump got elected.”
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg fired back, saying she doesn’t think border security is the issue.
“It is the wall that I think the Democrats are speaking about,” Goldberg said.
“But when you’re talking about getting rid of ICE, which is what she was referencing … it’s now become one of the trends on the far left that is coming towards the middle. There’s no victory lap,” responded McCain, before co-host Sunny Hostin chimed in to say she doesn’t believe “it’s coming towards the middle.”
“I think most Democrats believe in border security,” Hostin said. “I think this crisis is perhaps a humanitarian crisis, but it’s a crisis started by this president because this president is the one that separated families.”
They had an argument over who started the separation of families policy, but eventually it wound back to what Whoopi was really upset about – that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got so much airtime over Nancy and Chuck!!
Ahhh, good times to see Dems fight amongst each other!!
