“The View” co-host Meghan McCain blamed “the worst president in history” on Democrats, and said they would give Donald Trump a second term unless they let go of the Russia probe.
McCain wondered why Democrats weren’t willing to take a political risk and impeach Trump — whose approval rating fell to 37 percent — over the findings by special counsel Robert Mueller, which she wrote off as “anti-climactic.”
“What’s the problem?” McCain said. “He’s the worst president in history. According to our legal analyst (Sunny Hostin), there’s so much in this report that is damning. Then what’s the problem? Why is everyone so nervous about 2020? If this is the nail in the coffin –”
Co-host Joy Behar cut in to say many Americans were worried Russia would steal the next election, too, if Trump wasn’t held accountable.
“To me, that sounds irrational,” McCain said. “That’s an irrational answer to this question I just presented.”
“Unfortunately for Democrats, you got to get out there and win over the voters you lost in the middle of the country,” she added. “Thank you for clapping, whoever that is. My one fan, ma’am, thank you so much.”
Hostin asked her conservative colleague what Republicans would do to hold Trump accountable, and McCain cast blame for the president’s wrongdoing on everyone who didn’t believe he could win the election.
“I always took Trump seriously, I always did you can go back and check the receipts when I worked at Fox and on my radio show, I always took Trump seriously,” McCain said. “This mess I blame the left as much as the right, and the demonizing of all conservatives in this country, all Trump supporters, in every way. You’re getting him re-elected. To say that all Republicans are bad, and Republicans have to hold his feet to the fire.”
“There are some decisions he’s made, there are some decisions Trump’s made that aren’t the end of the world, that some Republicans support, including the Supreme Court,” she added.
Hostin asked McCain to comment on Trump’s behavior documented in the Mueller report, and she insisted that her late father’s opposition to Vladimir Putin gave her the authority to pronounce Trump had been cleared.
“It came out that he didn’t collude!” McCain said. “I accepted the Magnitsky Award in London on behalf of my father. I’m someone who for a long time been speaking out about Russia.”
Hostin asked her to comment on 11 instances of possible obstruction of justice detailed by Mueller, and McCain snapped at her.
“Let me finish!” she said.
She continued shouting all the way into the commercial break, which host Whoopi Goldberg quietly introduced as McCain ranted.
“Then you got no problems, he’s out of office,” McCain said. “Then Republicans are crap and it doesn’t matter.”
C-SPAN caller scorched by Muslim comedian for ignoring Jesus after she rants ‘gays are abomination to God’
Comedian Dean Obeidallah, who is Muslim, told a C-SPAN caller that Republicans are not following the teachings of Jesus Christ even though they may oppose abortion and other policies advocated by evangelicals.
"I am independent," Pam, who called from Arkansas, told Obeidallah. "I vote according to my conscience of who would Jesus vote for if he were here on Earth. And he would not vote a group of people who believe in murdering children in the womb, on gays, which is an abomination to God, on false gods from other countries."
Obeidallah replied with a lesson on the Christian savior.
Trump belatedly snarls at media for reporting a portion of his wall fell over — two weeks after it happened
On what must be a slow news day for President Donald Trump, he took to Twitter on Sunday morning to attack the press for reporting that a portion of his wall on the southern border toppled over two weeks ago -- and then blamed the collapse on "soaking wet" concrete and high winds.
Falling back on his stand-by "Fake News," the president tweeted: "Last week the Fake News said that a section of our powerful, under construction, Southern Border Wall 'fell over', trying to make it sound terrible, except the reason was that the concrete foundation was just poured & soaking wet when big winds kicked in. Quickly fixed 'forever'."

'I represent all of the party as a Republican," Winbush shot back. "I am here because we're Americans. and everything that you said about the president authoritarian or authoritarianism, none of that means anything because you are not understanding leadership."
