Meghan McCain leads The View hosts in brutal attack on Nikki Haley: ‘Disqualified for national office’

Published

on

Addressing former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley’s attempt to walk back her comments defending the flying of the Confederate flag, conservative co-host Meghan McCain took the lead on “The View” and hammered the former South Carolina governor — agreeing with co-host Sunny Hostin that Haley disqualified herself from ever being president.

With host Whoopi Goldberg off for the day, McCain asked to speak first, and jumped all over Haley who recently wrote an op-ed attempting to explain away her comments made during an interview with right-wing host Glenn Beck.

“When I first saw her making these comments to The Blaze, by the way, Glenn Beck still has a show, and I didn’t know that,” McCain began. “It was a very bizarre subject to be bringing up, and this is a conversation that’s been going on for decades and decades and decades, and this is the woman who now famously removed the Confederate flag from the South Carolina capital, it seemed like a strange stance.”

Noting that her father, the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) had become embroiled in a similar controversy, she pointed out that it always haunted him.

“Up until the point he died, he called it one of his life — he had two big life regrets,” she explained. “This was one of them, it haunted him, it will haunt her. It will, trust me. This was in 1999, over twenty years ago. I don’t understand why we’re still talking about it, I don’t understand why we’re still debating the Confederate racism, it’s a symbol of racism.”

“You want to know why people are still debating it? ” co-host Joy Behar asked. “It’s because we don’t have a John McCain anymore, there’s nobody in the Republican leadership that’s like him.”

That was when Hostin jumped in.

“I honestly think it’s disqualifying for her to run for national office now that she has made this statement,” Hostin asserted as McCain added her assent. “It is completely disqualifying for her and in that op-ed to try to clean up what she said on air, she’s saying now that it’s because of outrage culture that you could never now remove the flag from the South Carolina capital.”

McCain went on to note that Haley has repeatedly refused to appear on the show.

Morning Joe’s Mika: Thousands are dying of COVID-19 because Trump is ‘surrounded by inexperienced suck-ups’

Published

on

MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski got right to the point on Tuesday morning by saying people are getting sick and dying in the U.S. because Donald Trump is surrounded by a collection of "suck-ups" who won't tell him the brutal truth about what is happening in the country.

As part of a "Morning Joe" panel discussion on the failings of the Trump administration to head off of the COVID-19 pandemic that is ravaging the country -- despite ample warnings it was on the way -- Brzezinski, as well as co-host Willie Geist, levied some hard accusations against the president and his team.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe and Mika reveal why Trump likely ignored startlingly accurate COVID-19 memos

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski rebuked President Donald Trump for apparently ignoring startlingly accurate warnings from trade adviser Peter Navarro about the coronavirus pandemic.

Navarro's memos were circulated at the highest levels of government in January and February, but the president downplayed the virus until early March, when statewide lockdowns started wrecking the U.S. economy.

"In one worst-case scenario cited in the memo, Navarro warned that more than half a million Americans could die, and, yet, weeks after that, you had Donald Trump at rallies saying that in April when it warms up, this will miraculously go away," Scarborough said. "Put this in context with, I suppose you could say with 9/11, the memos warning of al-Qaeda attacks using airplanes, maybe missed signals FDR didn't pick up on before Pearl Harbor. I really don't know, though, what parallel there can be, because so many more people are going to die because of these missed signals."

‘One failure after another’: MSNBC’s Morning Joe busts tragic COVID-19 mistakes Trump keeps trying to deny

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough lamented the repeated failures and missed opportunities by President Donald Trump as he faced the coronavirus outbreak.

The "Morning Joe" host criticized the president for claiming it was not the federal government's job to test Americans for the virus, and instead shifted responsibility to the states and their governors.

"This is a perfect 'the buck stops here' contrast with Donald Trump, saying, 'I am not responsible,'" Scarborough said. "What we can talk about is ventilators, the national Defense Production Act. We could talk about all the ways that Donald Trump keeps trying to pass the buck, keeps trying to say, 'I'm not responsible.'"
