Meghan McCain explodes on Trump as The View rips his coronavirus address: ‘This could be the silver bullet’ that takes him out

Published

The View’s Meghan Mccain blasted President Donald Trump for his mediocre attempt to calm the nation during the coronavirus outbreak.

During the Thursday show, the co-hosts addressed the speech that was supposed to calm a fearful nation, but ultimately ended up being riddled with mistakes and inaccurate information.

McCain said that it did little to calm her fears.

“He does not inspire confidence. I could hear him breathing. could you?” said Behar. “Is there a microphone in his nostrils do you think? If he speaks of somebody who’s not in great health, and he’s been so exposed to a few people now who have had the coronavirus. He could come down with it.”

“The problem is when I watched it live like we all did, is he’s a politician that inspires anger really well,” McCain said. “If you want to get riled up and angry, he’s a politician who does it well. The ‘I feel your pain and fear,’ incapable of it. He could have been reading the phonebook last night. He should have been saying, ‘I understand Americans are scared.’ Have a Ronald Reagan-esque moment.”

She said that people are scared and he has an inability to “emote” with people in a crisis.

“And people at this point I can say — there’s a lot of healthy fear, and there’s a Quinnipiac poll that came out that says 56 percent see Joe Biden as a leader in a crisis, and I think this crisis has really shown it doesn’t matter at the end of the day how great the economy is, which by the way, 82 percent of his financial gains, since he has been president, have officially evaporate evaporated,” McCain also said.

She went on to say: “There are people when it comes to rallies, and how big your hands are, that’s different than leading through a lethal disease that can kill God knows how many more Americans. This could be the silver bullet that takes out this administration. I don’t mean that literally. everyone calm down.”

In the second segment, co-host Whoopi Goldberg noted that the president made a call for unity. But it lasted less than 12 hours as he began his morning blasting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

It infuriated McCain, who explained that it isn’t the time for this kind of behavior from the president.

“That clip, could he sell it less?” she asked. “We’re here as Americans. I can show you how to give a bomb-ass speech. I’m really good at it. We’re here as Americans and we’re here together because this is scary, and we will get past this. Hey, Trump! Try it! It’s ridiculous. Emote! Everyone is scared!”

This Europe country is housing quarantined coronavirus patients in a five-star hotel

Published

on

An ambulance driver wearing a white protective gown enters a Barcelona hotel and announces the arrival of three new "customers" -- a trio of coronavirus patients discharged from hospital into luxury quarantine.

"Good morning! How are you? My name is Enrique Aranda and I am probably the first non health care worker you see in several days," says the director of the five-star Melia Sarria hotel, peering into the ambulance.

It took just three days to convert the hotel, which features contemporary decor and bathrooms with marble finishing, into a clinic.

"Some patients arrive thinking that they were taken out of hospital to be left to die, many people are frightened. I try to make them forget all that," said Aranda, wearing mask and gloves.

UK Labour to unveil new leader to replace Jeremy Corbyn

Published

on

Britain's main opposition Labour party on Saturday unveils a new leader who will take the helm of a defeated and divided party in the midst of the coronavirus crisis.

Keir Starmer, a former director of state prosecutions and Labour's Brexit spokesman, is the runaway favourite to win the ballot of around 500,000 party members and succeed Jeremy Corbyn.

The announcement will be a low-key affair, with a planned special conference cancelled due to restrictions on social gatherings imposed to stem the spread of COVID-19.

Instead, the result will be put out in a press release mid-morning -- and candidates have been asked to pre-record their victory speeches.

Trump’s dead of night decision to fire ICIG Michael Atkinson is another blatant attempt to gut the independence of the Intelligence Community and retaliate against those who dare to expose presidential wrongdoing.
