The View’s Meghan McCain clashed with her co-hosts on Tuesday when she compared former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s likability unfavorably to that of former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann.
Co-host Joy Behar defended Clinton after McCain described her as “extremely unlikable”, saying the defeated presidential candidate “laughs easily” and had been unfairly characterized by the media. McCain asked why it didn’t “translate more”.
“Because she doesn’t know what to put out there because of all the pressure that’s put on the woman. ‘Should I be the good little wife? No. The wife who stands for her husband? No. Should I leave my husband. No. Should I be nice? Should I be strict? Should I be serious?’ Behar replied. “The poor girl didn’t know what to do next.”
“She’s not a poor girl. She’s a tough candidate for president,” McCain shot back. “You have to be in the arena.”
The discussion later turned to Bachmann. “She was the most unlikable person I’ve ever seen,” Behar remarked.
“But she didn’t make excuses. I interviewed her. She didn’t make excuses,” McCain insisted. “I liked her more after being around her.”

Democrat moves to impeach Trump immediately following House condemning president’s racism

Trump ‘reached into the Genesis chapter of the bigot’s bible’ to attack the Squad: journalist
On Tuesday, journalist Jamil Smith wrote a column scorching President Donald Trump's attacks on "The Squad," as an act of utmost bigotry — and narcissism.
"Trump would surely love to run against these four women in 2020 rather than an actual opponent, positioning them all as racial bogeymen," wrote Smith. "It's a royal flush for his racist campaign: two black women, including one who wears a hijab and is a Somali refugee; a boricua from the Bronx; and a first-generation Palestinian-American from Detroit."

The resolved that the body "strongly condemns President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color by saying that our fellow Americans who are immigrants, and those who may look to the President like immigrants, should “go back” to other countries, by referring to immigrants and asylum seekers as “invaders,” and by saying that Members of Congress who are immigrants (or those of our colleagues who are wrongly assumed to be immigrants) do not belong in Congress or in the United States of America."
