“The View’s” Meghan McCain tried to convince her fellow co-hosts to take a more fair-and-balanced approach to President Donald Trump on Thursday — but Joy Behar wasn’t having any of it.
During a discussion on Trump’s antics this week in Europe, McCain made the case that people should avoid getting “Trump Derangement Syndrome” and said that people should give the president credit when he does something right.
“I don’t think we should get out over our skis,” McCain said when discussing criticism of Trump. “I understand there is a hysteria with a certain group of people in the country. I do say, when I talk about trump derangement syndrome, we should take it issue by issue, rationally.”
Behar quickly shot back that it was hard to give Trump a fair shake when he spouted easily disprovable lies every day.
“The man lies, let’s say, six times a day — we can’t even keep up with him!” Behar shot back, which generated applause from audience members.
McCain once again emphasized that she was only calling on Behar to take every Trump controversy individually, and not assume that he’s always wrong.
Behar again shut her down.
“There aren’t enough years left in my life to take him issue by issue,” she said. “I can’t do it.”
