Meghan McCain is once again making headlines for her clashes on The View, and this time it is with moderator and EGOT recipient Whoopi Goldberg. Yesterday, McCain and Goldberg got into it over Democrats calling for President Donald Trump's impeachment. This happened after the news broke that Trump was pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former 2020 election rival and Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. It was also revealed Trump froze aid to Ukraine, which left many wondering if he was putting the squeeze on the European nation to give up dirt in exchange for help. Trump admitted he did stop the aid from coming to the country, but said he wanted other countries to "contribute funds."
Co-hosts Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin and Abby Hunstsman, who up until last week wanted to wait and see the evidence, stated,
Now we have more of the facts. The president himself admitted it. In my opinion, this is extortion.
McCain weighed in and stated,
Look, President [Barack] Obama resisted bipartisan efforts to send military assistance to the Ukraine back — I think it was $231 million in 2016, so I do think it’s ironic the Democrats were against sending money to the Ukraine but are a proponent of it now. Unleash the kraken. Because honestly, if you’re not going to listen to Nancy Pelosi about the political implications of this, just impeach him. See what happens politically. Because what happened with [President Bill] Clinton in the ’90s really did ended up hurting Republicans, and I think and many historians of politics believe that it helped get Clinton re-elected.
Goldberg chimed in after Behar, Hostin, Huntsman and McCain went back and forth over the issue and remarked,
I’m sorry … let me be clear about me and Republicans. I’ve been friends with Republicans my whole life.
McCain asked Goldberg if she trusted them not just as friends but in power, where Goldberg replied she did. Goldberg then started to recall how she was trashed for supporting former President George W. Bush's immigration plans when McCain sarcastically stated,
The nostalgia for Bush right now always entertains me.
Goldberg clapped back and said,
Well I’m glad you’re entertained. If you can’t see right now why people are upset about this —
McCain interrupted Goldberg and claimed,
Of course I see why people are upset.
Well then don’t be so dismissive when you’re talking!
I’m not dismissive.
Goldberg then stated right before going to commercial,
That’s how I feel!
