WATCH: The View's Meghan McCain and Sara Haines Face Off Over SCOTUS Nods

The View's co-hosts mourned the death of legendary legal mind and Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader GinsburgMeghan McCain said she didn't cry over RBG's passing, but did when Antonin Scalia died.

In response to a montage of Republicans like Mitch McConnell saying they wouldn't confirm a Scalia replacement before Election Day in 2016 (in contrast to them probably seeking  RBG's replacement ASAP), McCain replied:
