“The View” co-host Meghan McCain agreed bombshell revelations from President Donald Trump’s tax returns could sink his re-election bid, after voters realize his scam.
The conservative McCain frequently complains that Democrats are moving too far left for most voters, but she and host Whoopi Goldberg agreed it was outrageous that Trump paid no income tax between 1985 and 1994, according to the newly revealed documents.
“I’m sorry — I’m pissed,” Goldberg said, as the audience cheered.
McCain said that was an effective arguments for Democrats, who could say Trump scammed the system.
“He scammed the system for so long,” she said. “He lost a billion dollars. I’ve never been a business woman, (but) a billion dollars seems like a lot of money to lose.”
The audience laughed at her deadpan joke, and co-host Joy Behar pointed out no other taxpayer lost quite so much.
“If you’re Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren or Joe Biden right now,” McCain said, “you can say even if the economy is doing well, it’s off the benefit of corporations and people like Donald Trump, who have been able to game the system for so long. I think this is the message that could actually be the kill shot going into our next election cycle.”
Co-host Sunny Hostin wasn’t sure Trump’s base would care, but McCain thinks independent voters will.
“Look at the bigger picture,” said co-host Abby Huntsman. “You could have been sitting on your butt for 10 years ordering clothes from Amazon and lose less money than he did in 10 years. The money he got from his dad, if he let it sit and do absolutely nothing, maybe invested it, he would have done better, actually.”
Huntsman said Trump’s wealth was the only thing that he truly cared about, so this record of failure had to be devastating for him.
“Final pinpoint,” McCain said. “When he was roasted by Comedy Central, the only rule was you couldn’t make fun of him not having as much money, that’s the only rule.”
Behar said that’s why Trump hated former “View” co-host Rosie O’Donnell, because she made fun of his wealth, and she asked one final question for Trump voters.
“Would you want him investing your money?” Behar said.
‘Desperate’ Martha McSally blasted for shilling T-shirts in a ‘tone deaf’ attempt to capitalize on her ‘liberal hack’ outburst
In the wake of a deluge of media attention for her calling CNN Congressional reporter Manu Raju a "liberal hack," Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) decided to capitalize on the publicity and sell T-shirts with the phrase "You're a liberal hack, buddy" to raise funds for her election campaign. According to Laurie Roberts in an op-ed for the AZ Central this Monday, the move is both a fashion statement and political statement -- but ultimately it's a statement "of just how desperate Arizona’s unelected senator is to boost her treasury as she campaigns to hang onto the seat."
‘Can you imagine a group of black men walking around with masks and guns?’ Virginia rally sparks questions of racism and privilege
It’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and for several hours now countless mostly white, mostly male pro-gun, anti-gun control activists have been marching throughout the streets of Richmond, Virginia, claiming to merely be exercising their Second Amendment rights. Many appear to be dressed in military garb, including camouflage, masks, and donning various types of firearms over their shoulders or at their side.
Some Virginians have been so concerned about the possibility of violence that Governor Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency and banned guns from the capitol. His ban survived a state supreme court challenge. Some say the ban does not appear to have been enforced.

A gun rights activist in Virginia went ballistic on Monday when he saw an MSNBC correspondent reporting from a Second Amendment rally.

The man rattled off a string of profanities and capped it off with "f*ck you." Several security guards blocked the man from getting close to Gutierrez.
"Apologies for some of the background noise you just heard," MSNBC host Hallie Jackson said as the network cut the sound.
