According to McCain, the whistleblower who leaked President Trump’s July call with Ukraine, setting off the Democrats’ impeachment effort, should have been named.
“I actually wanted it to be the whistleblower this year to be the person of the year. I think it’s a more salient and timely choice,” McCain said, latter adding that she didn’t think Thunberg “earned” the honor.
McCain’s comments brought swift pushback from fans of her show on Twitter:
Here's Meghan, "I won't talk about kids but at 16 years old, Greta Thunberg has peaked"

Meghan McCain re. Greta Thunberg: “I don’t believe in attacking minor children (while backhandedly attacking Greta).”
Meghan & Ben Domenench are made for each other. Let’s not forget he trashed the Parkland kids and their parents. Pray these two never procreate. #TheView #BeBest

@MeghanMcCain # I cannot believe your president's remark on Greta T being on the cover of Time, please Meghan he says she needs anger management classes, maybe he should take his own advise, he is such a poor ambassador for your party, get your Mum to run.

Meghan McCain’s #TheView argument regarding Greta Thunberg’s being named Time’s “Person of the Year” is idiotic. Who says Miss Thunberg WANTS to do “more” than that? It’s something she can look back on in her life and say, “I did that”.

To Meghan McCain's comment about "Where do you go from here?" in reference to Greta Thunberg being named #TIMEPersonoftheYear2019 at age 17, I would point out that Malala Yousafzai won the Nobel Peace Prize at 17 and is still doing quite well, going strong. #TheView

Oh Meghan what the hell is wrong with you? Has Greta reached her peak? Have you? What a ridiculous comment. Don’t most people move past 1 achievement to get to the next? Don’t you have goals past whatever you call what you’re doing now?

Greta is a great role model for other children. Wish more could be like her. MM is a spoiled brat. And is jealous of girls like her.

Alabama Republican: ‘I want to see more people’ get coronavirus
On Thursday, Alabama Senate President Pro Tempore Del Marsh suggested that he wanted more people to get coronavirus — because he thinks America would develop "herd immunity" and reduce the spread enough to protect more vulnerable populations.
"I'm not as concerned so much as the number of cases. In fact, quite honestly, I want to see more people, because we start reaching an immunity the more people have it and get through it," said Marsh. "I don't want any deaths, as few as possible, say, I get it, but those people who are susceptible to the disease, especially more serious pre-existing conditions, elderly population, those folks, we need to, you know, do all we can to protect them. But I'm not concerned, I want to make sure that everybody can receive care."
The Secretary of Defense was briefed on Russian bounty on American soldiers — proving it isn’t the hoax Trump said it was
Last week, President Donald Trump finally heard the news that the Russian government was giving cash to Afghanistan's Taliban forces to murder American soldiers.
Initially, he began with Step one in the Trump list of processing a scandal: denial.
"Nobody briefed or told me, @VP Pence, or Chief of Staff @MarkMeadows about the so-called attacks on our troops in Afghanistan by Russians, as reported through an "anonymous source" by the Fake News @nytimes. Everybody is denying it & there have not been many attacks on us. Nobody's been tougher on Russia than the Trump Administration. With Corrupt Joe Biden & Obama, Russia had a field day, taking over important parts of Ukraine - Where's Hunter? Probably just another phony Times hit job, just like their failed Russia Hoax. Who is their 'source'?" tweeted Trump on June 28.
Here’s why Trump contradicted his own White House on the Supreme Court rulings
Following the Supreme Court's pair of 7-2 decisions rejecting President Donald Trump's claim to have absolute immunity from subpoenas, he blasted the ruling on Twitter, claiming he being unfairly targeted and the victim of "prosecutorial misconduct." However, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany released a statement saying that "President Trump is gratified by today’s decision."
