Meghan McCain Snaps at Sunny Hostin: Take Your Cheap Applause Line!
Things are just going swimmingly on The View.
Following a weeks worth of dramatic impeachment hearings, conservative co-host Meghan McCain lashed out at her View colleagues on Friday over Republican belief that President Trump did not commit an impeachable offensespecifically getting into a heated, personal clash with co-host Sunny Hostin.
After McCain pointed out that retiring Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) said that he has not heard evidence proving Trump committed bribery or extortion, liberal co-host and frequent sparring partner Joy Behar wondered aloud whether Hurd was deaf since we all heard it.
This prompted McCain to grumble that Democrats had gotten out over their skis so many times with Trump that theres now a problem of distrust for conservatives like here when it comes to impeachment.
Can I say one thingwhat about the Constitution? Isnt that the bottom line? Behar asked.
I have a copy of the Constitution on my nightstand, the daughter of John McCain shot back. Please dont talk to me about the Constitution.
The Constitution belongs to all of us whether we have it on our nightstand or not, Behar retorted.
Moments later, McCain moved on to her next target after Hostin said she was shocked to hear Hurd dismiss the evidence against the president.
I will also say that it tells me that he is complicit, the Republican Party has enabled this president, continues to enable this president, Hostin continued, causing McCain to accuse her of slandering a former CIA officer.
Its about the fact that he heard evidence clear and simple and for him to sit there and say that hethe evidence has to be overwhelming and that he heard no overwhelming evidence, I want to know which hearings he was sitting at, Hostin added to loud cheers from the audience.
Its easy to get a cheap applause line here, McCain groused. It just is, and thats fine. Take your cheap applause line. After Hostin sternly responded that it isnt a cheap applause line and they agree with her, McCain yelled: Let me speak!
You have been speaking a lot, Hostin quickly fired back.
