Joy Behar challenged co-host Meghan McCain to explain why she doesn’t like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and she folded.
“The View” panelists were discussing Pelosi’s public feud with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and three other first-year Democrats, and they all agreed the four freshman lawmakers should show respect for the House speaker.
“Lest we forget it’s Pelosi who delivered midterms,” McCain said. “It was her leadership — which I once questioned on this show, I no longer do. I would like to say she is 79 years old and she could be with her grandkids and her family.”
But she could resist taking a personal shot at Pelosi.
“I don’t like her and her politics,” McCain said, “but she serves her country, and that deserves respect from younger generations in the same way that I think Joe Biden and everybody else who has dedicated their life to service deserves respect. I was texting memes to my friends, let them fight it out — it’s Democrat-on-Democrat crime. It’s fascinating to watch. Republicans don’t do this when it comes down to the wire.”
Behar reminded her that Republicans used to let their disagreements spill out into the public, and then she asked McCain to explain her dislike for Pelosi.
“Why don’t you like her,” Behar said. “You say you don’t like her. Why don’t you like her?”
McCain just repeated what she’d already said, but didn’t offer an explanation for her personal distaste for Pelosi.
“I don’t like her policies,” McCain said, “but I respect anyone who has dedicated — anyone who has served the length of time this person has served and could be retired. She’s almost 80 years old, and I respect any woman who does public service in that way. I always will.”

Julian Castro nails McConnell and GOP to the wall for putting ‘sexual predator’ Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court
Calling into MSNBC's "AM Joy" on Sunday morning, Democratic presidential contender Julian Castro ripped into Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as a serial sexual predator and said that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the GOP are to blame for his being on the court.
Speaking with host Joy Reid, Castro renewed a call he made late Saturday night for Kavanaugh to be impeached over fresh allegations of sexual assault before getting down to the heart of the matter.
"Do you believe there was misconduct in this case by the FBI and the Department of Justice or even by the senators who seemed uninterested in finding out of what really happened with this very brief investigation of Mr. Kavanaugh?" Reid asked.
