Sparring With Joy Behar
During her time on “The View,” Meghan McCain frequently sparred with her radically liberal fellow cohost Joy Behar.
In one fiery exchange, McCain went off after Behar claimed that the Republican Party “doesn’t care” about allegations of sex trafficking involving Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL).
This did not sit well with McCain.
“Well first of all, I have family members and good friends who all work on Capitol Hill in Republican politics, and trust me, the Republican party and people on Capitol Hill are embarrassed by this,” McCain fired back. “So, I think I have a lot better sourcing on that than you do Joy, no offense.”
Why Meghan McCain Left ‘The View’
McCain announced in July that she was leaving “The View.” The 36-year-old wanted to continue living in Washington D.C. with her husband and their young daughter.
“I think as any new mom knows, when I think about where I want [daughter] Liberty to have, you know her first steps and her first words — I just have this really wonderful life here [in D.C.] that ultimately, I felt I didn’t want to leave,” she said as she announced her exit, according to People Magazine.
Meghan McCain is her own brand of conservative and a woman who’s not afraid to tell it like it is.
We can’t wait to see what she writes as she takes the muzzle off for her new Daily Mail column!
