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 who got her job on the view not because of merit but because of who her Daddy was! Greta and Malala did this all on their own because they have too their lives were at stake!

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.

Amy Klobuchar wins endorsement in first in the nation primary from the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) received a big endorsement on Saturday evening when her 2020 bid was endorsed by the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper.
"If there is to be any realistic challenge to Trump in November, the Democratic nominee needs to have a proven and substantial record of accomplishment across party lines, an ability to unite rather than divide, and the strength and stamina to go toe-to-toe with the Tweeter-in-Chief," the newspaper wrote. "That would be U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota. She is sharp and witty, with a commanding understanding of both history and the inner workings of Capitol Hill."
Wake Forest slammed for inadequate response to threatening emails labeled ‘white supremacist terrorism’
Tensions remain high at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC after emails considered "white supremacist terrorism" threatened the school.
"Three months after a set of anonymous, threatening, racist, antisemitic and homophobic emails sent a wave of fear through the sociology department at Wake Forest University, the department chairman says he's still waiting for university leaders to announce a meaningful response," the Associated Press reported Saturday."
Economists warn Trump policies will result in lost jobs and lower wages for American workers
The 20-year-old San Diego bakery Con Pane Rustic Breads & Cafe went out of business this month after an audit by US authorities found immigrants working there illegally.
In April, a small Nebraska town lost a potato processing plant, and the local revenue it generated, in the wake of an immigration raid on its facilities. A restaurant in New York appears to have suffered similar fate in August.
Farmers say they are planting less, turning to automation, eliminating some crops, leaving them to rot in the field or contemplating selling out of the business altogether -- all because they cannot find enough immigrant labor.
