Meghan McCain is no friend of President Trump despite being a staunch Republican and it all stems from her recently deceased father John McCain feud between the two after he defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016.
But Meghan is the lone Republican co-host on “The View” and is constantly berated by her liberal co-hosts like Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar. Now Rosie O’Donnell has interjected herself into the debate.
And you’ll never believe what former “The View” co-host Rosie O’Donnell thinks Meghan McCain should do on the show.
Outside of dramatized reality television shows like the plethora of “Real Housewives of…” whatever, “The View” is one of the cattiest spiteful hours in any given day.
The ABC show features co-hosts Whoopie Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Meghan McCain and Abby Huntsman; and some of them obviously don’t get along but occasionally it gets to the point of massive on-air blowups at each other – particularly, the ongoing feud between McCain and Behar, and McCain and Goldberg.
McCain is the staunch Republican while both Goldberg and Behar are extremely liberal. But it’s particularly McCain and Behar who clearly don’t like each other. It gets juicy between the two.
That spicy ongoing feud is what’s hard to turn away from. Like any reality television show, when two people get into it with each other, it’s like watching a train wreck or when you rubberneck as you see a cop arresting someone on the side of the road.
But former “The View” co-host Rosie O’Donnell hates the bickering between the two, but specifically about that she wishes McCain would stop being “mean” to Behar. Go figure it’s one-sided for O’Donnell; both her and Behar are former President Obama-loving liberals and actually called the current host a “living legend” recently.
O’Donnell was asked recently on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” if she ever watched her old stomping grounds and O’Donnell said, “I don’t watch and I knew [McCain] when she was very young. I had the pleasure of working with her father for a lot of the Wounded Warrior’s projects. I think she’s in a difficult position.”
McCain is outspoken about her disdain for President Trump amid her father, John McMcain’s recent passing, and when reports came out recently when our commander-in-chief was in Japan and wanted the USS John McCain out of port while he was there, Meghan said he would “never be the man my father was.”
O’Donnell continued, “He had been dying for a while… we’ve watched her daily, you know, try to grieve and get through and it’s not really that easy. I do have some compassion for her, although, I wish she wouldn’t be mean to Joy Behar.”
There was a showstopper recently when McCain called Behar a “B-tch.” The 34-year-old McCain groused that she was the program’s “sacrificial Republican” to which Behar responded “Awww.”
A disgruntled McCain clapped back “Oh, don’t feel bad for me, b-tch. I’m paid to do this, OK? Don’t feel bad for me.”
Later Behar would address the use of the word saying of McCain, “We’re both pugilistic, and so we’re fine … I’m very straight in what I believe, and so is she, so we’re going to fight. I don’t care if you call me a b—h.”
But to be fair, Behar says as much or more right back to McCain. The point being; clearly they have no mutual respect or admiration for each other.
O’Donnell begs to differ about that though.
In the same interview, O’Donnell said, “[Behar’s] the elder statesman in the room.” This is true but it doesn’t she’s allowed to disrespect without recourse or repercussions because she’s the “elder statesman.”
Granted, O’Donnell is wrong about the ongoing feud between the two. It’s what makes the show even remotely interesting.
