On Friday, the panel on ABC's "The View" drew Meghan McCain up short when she complained that people keep "lecturing" her about values since she joined the show.


McCain was addressing guest-host -- and fierce critic of President Donald Trump -- Ana Navarro's comments on the divide in the Republican Party.

"I've never felt more defensive of Trump's base, I've never felt more conservative or more defensive of the middle of the country than I have since I started working on this show," said McCain.

She continued, "I don't mean that in a negative way, it's just that I have a whole new understanding of what it feels like to sort of be lectured to about our values."

"I think we've got to be less stuck on labels," said Navarro, "and look more at the individual candidates."

"Who's lecturing you, Meghan?" asked Joy Behar pointedly. "Who's lecturing you?"

"But to Ana's point, which is such an important one," said panelist Sunny Hostin, "when you have a choice between an alleged pedophile and a man who put KKK members in prison as U.S. Attorney of Alabama, there's a need for people to put country before party."

"I don't understand," said McCain. "He lost."

"Yeah, we know," said Behar.
