The View’s Joy Behar struggles in vain to calm down Meghan McCain as she blows up on Bill de Blasio

Published

on

“The View” co-host Meghan McCain hates New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and she made sure everyone knows it.

The mayor entered the already crowded Democratic presidential primary, and McCain and host Whoopi Goldberg strongly criticized his tenure leading the city.

“This morning on (‘Good Morning America’),” McCain said, “people were screaming ‘liar’ so loud outside that George Stephanopoulos had to say, hey, there’s a bunch of protesters out there.”

Co-host Joy Behar, who defended de Blasio’s record, suggested the protesters could have been a setup to make the mayor look bad, and McCain shouted her down.

“Can I just finish talking?” McCain said. “Because I hate this guy, thank you.”

She got a smattering of applause, and launched into a litany of reasons she dislikes de Blasio.

“Seventy-six percent of New Yorkers said he shouldn’t run for president,” McCain said, “here’s a violent crime rise, there’s a measles outbreak, increase in homelessness, he’s a climate change hypocrite. He drives to and from Gracie Mansion down to Brooklyn, an 11-mile caravan, yet he’s advocating for a Green New Deal right now. And on top of everything else, he killed the groundhog, and I feel like that’s important to America. We have the video, he did. He dropped this groundhog!”

De Blasio dropped “Staten Island Chuck” during a Groundhog Day event, and the Staten Island Zoo eventually admitted the animal died a week later from internal injuries.

“Are you holding him responsible for the measles outbreak?” Behar said.

“You’re talking about crappy things happening in New York City,” McCain said. “As far as I’m concerned, it is (his fault).”

GOP congressman demands Pelosi’s House floor statement be ‘taken down’ after she denounces Trump’s racist tweets

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) took to the floor of Congress to read a statement denouncing President Donald Trump's recent statements telling four Congresswomen of color to go back to their home country. But Republicans are trying everything they can to dismiss the bill.

"The comments are racist," Pelosi said. "How shameful to hear him continue to defend the offensive words. Words we have heard him repeat not only about our members but about countless others. Our caucus will continue to forcefully respond on these attacks which reflect a fundamental disrespect for the beautiful diversity of America. There’s no place anywhere for the president’s words which are not only divisive but dangerous and have legitimatized an increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color."
