Meghan McCain on Wednesday scoffed at her fellow “The View” co-hosts over “identity politics” after Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin celebrated a Republican woman defeating the GOP incumbent in South Carolina.
The hosts were discussing Donald Trump critic Mark Sanford’s defeat Tuesday in South Carolina’s first congressional district. Trump, who came out in support of Sanford’s opponent Katie Arrington hours before the polls closed, took credit for the results Wednesday.
Hostin described the “upside” of Sanford’s defeat in terms of the “the year of the woman.”
“On Tuesday, three women won Democratic primaries,” Hostin began as McCain tried to interject.
“One second,” Hostin said to McCain.
“But when you’re talking about identity politics, the woman who just beat Mark Sanford is a woman,” McCain complained. “She’s a Trumper. So again, if it’s just about gender.”
“She’s a woman, so it’s the year of the woman,” Hostin explained.
“So she won ‘cause it’s just about gender?” McCain continued.
“I’m happy about that,” Hostin said as McCain rolled her eyes.
“I am woman—hear me roar!” Behar sang.
“Did you hear what I just said?” McCain shouted. “This is ridiculous. The woman who beat Mark Sanford that’s a major Trumper is a woman. Is it just about electing all women even if they’re hyper Trump supporters.”
“I think the thing is representation,” Sara Haines explained.

WATCH: Trump advisor trashes Dr. Fauci — while pushing coronavirus conspiracy theories
White House economic advisor Peter Navarro pushed several conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 pandemic as the administration attempts to deflect blame for America responding to coronavirus worse than any other developed country.
At one point in the interview, MSNBC's Ali Velshi had to ask, "What are you talking about?"
Navarro harshly criticized Dr. Tony Fauci, who is one of his colleagues in the administration.
And he tried to blame the "Chinese Communist Party" for the disease, saying "they spawned the virus, they hid virus, they sent hundreds of thousands of Chinese nationalists over here to seed and spread the virus before we knew."
Matt Schlapp mocked for claim this may be final 4th of July before ‘Marxists’ take over US: ‘Groucho? Harpo? Chico?’
Far right wing lobbyist, Fox News contributor, Trump campaign surrogate, and provocateur Matt Schlapp is being mocked after claiming Marxists are taking over the country and warning that as a result, Saturday may be America's final Fourth of July.
Schlapp apparently was forced to use a photo of umbrella-holding protestors fleeing what looks like tear gas, with one particularly patriotic young man donning an American flag face mask while holding up a rather large American flag.
