“The View” co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain ganged up on President Donald Trump for horrifically botching the military operation in Syria, and then throwing a tantrum when Republicans rebuked him.
Trump has enjoyed nearly slavish devotion from his congressional GOP allies, but House Speaker Nancy Pelsoi said the president had a “meltdown” during a White House meeting after the House voted to condemn his military withdrawal and abandonment of the Kurds.
“His problem right now too is that social media, everyone can see the atrocities that are happening right now in Syria with the Kurds,” McCain said. “It’s all over social media, and I have been apoplectic for a week and a half now, and everything we said was going to happen is happening. Our allies are being slaughtered.”
“It’s the worst thing he has done in the presidency,” she added.
McCain objected to the president using sexist language to inaccurately characterize Pelosi’s conduct during the meeting.
“If you want to say she got overheated — which it doesn’t look like that in the picture,” McCain said. “Calling a woman unhinged and shrill, it’s a deeply sexist thing to say about Speaker Pelosi. I can’t take what you are saying seriously in any way.”
“A lot of women are clapping because you know we’re called unhinged,” she added. “Thank you.”
Goldberg slammed the president for rejecting accountability for a disaster of his own making.
“Here’s the thing that’s really pissing me off,” Goldberg said. “You made a decision to pull these troops out, and now you’re pretending you didn’t do it.”
“For me, if you are going to sit in that office, grow a pair,” Goldberg continued, “because you did this, you started this. You pulled these folks out. You’re the one trying to say the Kurds are not good — they fought beside us. When did you decide they weren’t altogether right for us to be working with? When did this all happen? Last week. So grow a pair, man. You brought this on yourself.”
‘Why do we need camo in space’: Trump’s Space Force ridiculed for woodland camouflage uniforms

Sorry for the question but why do we need camo in space?
BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women
The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.
The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.
"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.
Dershowitz is running a ‘bizarro defense’ of Trump: Harvard Law colleague says ‘Alan is just completely wacko’
Two of the most famous names associated with Harvard Law School had competing appearances on MSNBC on Friday.
It began when Alan Dershowitz, a professor emeritus, was interviewed MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber about his new role officially representing President Donald Trump during the Senate impeachment trial.
Dershowitz claimed that neither abuse of power nor obstruction of Congress count as "high crimes" under the constitution.
Professor Alan Dershowitz, who has also been associated with Harvard Law for five decades, was asked about Dershowitz's argument during an interview with Chris Hayes.
