The hosts of “The View” on Wednesday mocked Meghan McCain for insisting that there really was a “War on Christmas” that President Donald Trump was supposedly “brilliant” to exploit.
The controversy started after the show played a clip of Trump talking about how people were afraid to say “Merry Christmas” before he was elected as president.
Host Whoopi Goldberg admitted that she generally says “Happy Holidays” to people in December, largely because she can’t be sure of whether the people she’s greeting are Christians or not.
McCain took this admission as proof that there actually is a “War on Christmas” because Goldberg believed that she was being more “inclusive” by saying, “Happy Holidays.”
“Just the mention of saying it’s more inclusive to say ‘Happy Holidays,’ I don’t think I’m not inclusive,” she said. “I’m a Christian, I say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ And U would like to wish everyone ‘Merry Christmas’ to everyone, and no one’s been offended, at least to my face.”
McCain’s admission that no one has actually ever berated her for wishing them “Merry Christmas” led her other hosts to point out that there is no real “War on Christmas.”
McCain, however, was not dissuaded.
“I think the ‘War on Christmas’ is a real thing in our culture because we’re having a debate about it right now at this table!” she said.
“It’s a B.S. debate!” Goldberg shot back.

Trump lies to the press about his massive tax increasing while departing to France for the G7 Summit
President Donald Trump was caught repeating inaccurate claims when he spoke to reporters before boarding Marine One for his trip to France for the G7 Summit.
"I think our tariffs are very good for us. We're taking in tens of billions of dollars, China is paying for it," Trump argued.
In reality, China is not paying for the tariffs, which are paid by American importers and passed on to consumers, making the announcement a massive tax increase on Americans.
"Our tariffs are working out very well for us, people don't understand that yet," Trump argued.

Bill Maher dances on David Koch’s grave: ‘I’m glad he’s dead and I hope the end was painful’
HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher celebrated the death of right-wing billionaire David Koch, who died of prostate cancer.
"I guess I'm going to have to reevaluate my low opinion of prostate cancer," Maher said.
"Condolences poured in from all the politicians he owned and mourners are being asked, in lieu of flowers, to just leave their car engine running," he said.
"I know these seem like harsh words and harsh jokes, and I'm sure I will be condemned for them on Fox News, which will portray Mr. Koch as a principled libertarian who believed in the free market," Maher said. "He and his brother have done more than anybody to fund climate science deniers -- for decades."
