Meghan McCain laughs in Matt Gaetz’s face as the Trump-loving congressman flops on The View

Published

on

Rep. Matt Gaetz loudly argued with “The View” panelists over President Donald Trump’s pardons.

The Florida Republican immediately started an argument with Joy Behar, and conservative Meghan McCain laughed in his face for defending a possible pardon for Trump friend Roger Stone — who was convicted of lying to Congress and threatening a witness in the Russia probe.

“Oh come on, congressman,” McCain said, laughing as Gaetz sputtered. “Come on, he’s the swampiest swamp creature.”

Gaetz started shouting about former President Bill Clinton’s pardons, and claimed the presidential pardon power was a vestige from the British monarchy — which gave the “sovereign” the authority to extend “unlimited grace.”

“Did you just say the sovereign?” asked host Whoopi Goldberg, but then realized Gaetz was only attempting an analogy, and not calling Trump a king.

McCain then challenged the lawmaker to explain how Trump could win over conservative women like herself who were put off by the president’s attitude towards women.

“I’m not a Trumper, I think everyone knows that is very clear,” she began. “Policy-wise he’s been great on many things, many things that are very important to me — life, military, the economy — but his character issues are still what holds me and so many, especially I think conservative women, back from going full throttle with him.”

“I think you’re going to have a problem,” McCain added, “specifically with college educated women coming into the next election cycle. What would you say to women like me who still hold back on the grab them in the blank, attacking war heroes, attacking Gold Star families.”

Gaetz instantly flew off the rails when co-host Sunny Hostin added Trump’s affair with a porn actress to the list — as the audience cracked up.

“Well look,” Gaetz shouted, “if cheating on your wife is a disqualification to be president, y’all probably should have impeached Bill Clinton.”

The panelists were momentarily stunned, and they all reminded a stumbling Gaetz that the House had, in fact, impeached Clinton.

Gaetz attempted to recover from his stumble.

“Not with all of you waving any pom-poms,” Gaetz said.

A confused Hostin asked what that meant, and Behar waved Gaetz off.

“It means nothing,” Behar said. “It means nothing.”

‘They don’t understand what it means to be American’: Ex-Pentagon chief blasts White House

Published

on

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany explained Wednesday that President Donald Trump went to St. John's Church with his Bible because it's what former President George W. Bush did after Sept. 11 and what Winston Churchill did during World War II. The problem, of course, being that protesters demanding an end to police brutality aren't the same as Al-Qaeda or the Nazis and it's police killing unarmed Americans, not Black Lives Matter.

Team Trump ‘running for cover’ after attempt to crack down on protests results in ‘humiliation’: conservative columnist

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Wednesday, columnist Jennifer Rubin writes that the "tear-gassing of peaceful protesters, the debasement of St. John’s Episcopal Church, the wholly inappropriate participation of the defense secretary and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the goose step across Lafayette Square" were actually President Trump's way of compensating for reports that he retreated to an underground bunker when protesters got close to the White House.

Rubin points to Trump's claim that he went to the bunker for an "inspection." But according to Defense Secretary Mark Esper, he had no idea where Trump and the rest of his entourage were going.
