Meghan McCain is sick of hearing George Conway’s criticism of President Donald Trump, when his wife is running around engaging in the same ugly behavior.
White House adviser Kellyanne Conway asked a reporter about his ethnicity instead of answering a question about the president’s racist tweets, and “The View” co-host said she wasn’t buying the Trump aide’s explanation.
“I don’t really care because it’s so tone deaf, and especially given the comments the president said on Twitter,” she said.
McCain said George Conway’s constant criticism was losing its bite.
“Her husband is one of the most adamant outspoken people, especially against what he interpreted about the president’s tweets being racist,” McCain said. “My message to George Conway is start at home, okay? If me and my husband were together — no, I’m sick of it. He gets on his high horse on Twitter all the time. If I felt like my husband were getting on TV and saying racist comments and things like this, and I was so outraged, we would be having a conversation.”
She said the conservative attorney was losing some credibility every time his wife goes on TV.
“I feel like what she’s doing is abhorrent, and I don’t understand why asking anyone their ethnicity in any situation alone, let alone in front of the White House,” McCain said. “I have stopped taking him seriously, because if I was super close to someone doing this, I would take it to more than just Twitter.”
McCain said she doesn’t understand how George Conway can criticize his wife’s boss and then go home to their family.
“They have children at home that are being influenced by this,” she said, “and if you feel this deeply, which I do believe that he does, I can’t reconcile it, and I think it’s bizarre that it’s a hot topics on ‘The View.'”
Obama’s chief economist warns of ‘a very high chance’ Trump’s trade war could cause 2020 recession
The former chair of the Council of Economic Advisers under President Barack Obama warned of "a very high chance" of Trump's trade war with China resulting in a recession -- "just in time for 2020."
Austan Goolsbee was interviewed by MSNBC's John Heilemann on Friday after the DJIA closed down over 600 points after the trade war escalated on Friday.
"Just give us, if you would, Austan, your sense of what has unfolded today and how bad it is," Heilemann asked.
"Yes, it’s terrible, I'm phoning from a bunker as we speak," Goolsbee replied.
"There hasn’t been a day like this in a very long time. Yes, the markets sell a lot but the fact we’re going to have an escalating trade war, the president of the United States is publicly declaring the head of the Fed an enemy of the state and, oh, by the way, 40% of the Amazon is on fire and Ruth Bader Ginsburg is being treated for pancreatic cancer," he continued. "If this is on a Friday, it makes it bad for Monday."
Trump responds to China raising tariffs — by raising tariffs on over half a trillion dollars in Chinese goods
After US markets tanked on Friday, President Donald Trump dramatically escalated his trade war with China.
"For many years China (and many other countries) has been taking advantage of the United States on trade, intellectual property theft, and much more. Our country has been losing hundreds of billions of dollars a year to China, with no end in sight," Trump tweeted.
"Sadly, past Administrations have allowed China to get so far ahead of fair and balanced trade that it has become a great burden to the American taxpayer. As President, I can no longer allow this to happen," he argued.

"Donald Trump beginning this day with a Twitter tirade that sent the Dow spiraling, closing down more than 600 points today and escalating his trade war with China with these norm-shattering, power-abusing words in this tweet," he said, putting the tweet on-screen.
