The ABC talk show “The View” erupted once again on Friday morning when Meghan McCain and Joy Behar got into another spat about Donald Trump. This time the two cohosts were arguing whether he was electable over 2020 Democrat Mike Bloomberg.
Meghan McCain And Joy Behar Fight About Trump
“You know what Joy, I’ve been right about election stuff and you’ve been wrong, so just trust me on this,” McCain said. Pointing out that Behar was convinced Trump would lose in 2016, according to Fox News.
McCain then went on to say that Bloomberg, who wants to “take away your Slurpee”, would have a harder time getting elected than Trump.
“And you know what, the guy who wants to take away your health care is even in worse shape,” Behar retorted.
Behar then returned to her favorite talking point, saying that Trump did not actually win the election because he lost his popular vote. This caused McCain to finally lose it, exclaiming that it was ridiculous for her to continue saying that “every single day on this show.”
“He is president, move on!” McCain shouted.
A visibly annoyed Behar responded by saying “everybody on this panel repeats themselves.”

The Fight Escalates
Things went so far off the rails that McCain even called Behar “Joe” at one point. Seemingly because she had Bloomberg’s fellow candidate Joe Biden still on her mind.
“And climate change is a good way to win over coal miners, Joe!” McCain said sarcastically.
As the audience laughed, cohost Ana Navarro chimed in, “Well, this is a hell of a Valentine’s Day show!”
As the segment wound down, lone conservative cohost McCain indicated that the producers were telling her to stop talking.
“Why are you doing this?” she asked, appearing to address producers.
Donald Trump And Mike Bloomberg Feud
This fiery exchange on “The Views” comes just one day after President Trump blasted Mike Bloomberg on Twitter.
“Mini Mike Bloomberg is a LOSER who has money but can’t debate and has zero presence, you will see,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “He reminds me of a tiny version of Jeb ‘Low Energy’ Bush, but Jeb has more political skill and has treated the Black community much better than Mini!”

Bloomberg fired back by writing, “Donald Trump, we know many of the same people in NY. Behind your back they laugh at you & call you a carnival barking clown. They know you inherited a fortune & squandered it with stupid deals and incompetence. I have the record & the resources to defeat you. And I will.”

It’s exhausting to hear “The View” cohost still whining that Trump didn’t actually win the 2016 election. More than three years after he did indeed beat Hillary Clinton.
We’re glad to see that at least Meghan McCain isn’t afraid to call Joy Behar and the liberal echo chamber out on their nonsense.
