‘That makes no sense’: The View’s Sunny Hostin busts Meghan McCain’s ‘ludicrous’ defense of Trump

Published

on

“The View” co-host Meghan McCain agreed with President Donald Trump’s attack on the World Health Organization — but her colleague Sunny Hostin quickly set her straight.

The president essentially blamed the WHO for the same mistakes he’s been accused of making, and the conservative McCain agreed.

“It’s hard for me to find something I agree with President Trump in right now, but I actually do agree with him on the criticism of the World Health Organization,” she said. “They seem to have been spewing Chinese propaganda for a very long time. Back in January, they said there was no evidence that human-to-human contact would spread COVID. They praised China’s transparency up until March. They criticized the travel ban that President Trump put on China, which is one of the moves I actually think ended up helping America.

“I don’t have a lot of love lost for China right now,” she added, “and I don’t think a lot of Americans do either.”

Hostin disagreed, and said the president shouldn’t be able to wriggle off the hook for his mistakes.

“I think that the responsibility for the safety of Americans is really on the shoulders of this administration, and squarely falls on President Trump,” Hostin said.

She pointed to a new report showing that U.S. intelligence officials warned of a contagion sweeping through Wuhan, China, and expressing concern for U.S. forces stationed in Asia, and that military intelligence was added to the president’s briefing in January.

“Now for that type of intelligence to end up in the president’s daily briefing requires a tremendous amount of analysis and vetting,” Hostin said. “We know that this president oftentimes doesn’t read his intelligence briefings, his daily briefings, and we also know he doesn’t trust U.S. intelligence, and he doesn’t trust his U.S. intelligence experts, but America knew. Intelligence officials knew that there was a contagion out of Wuhan as early as November, so to place the blame on the World Health Organization, I think is really ludicrous in a sense because it was up to the United States to protect the United States.”

“Isn’t that what this president talks about all the time?” she added. “U.S. first, make America great again, I’m going to be this nationalist, I’m going to be this isolationist, and now all of a sudden, it’s the World Health Organization’s fault? That makes no sense to me.”

Published

President Donald Trump's Michigan supporters are abandoning their 2016 pick for Vice President Joe Biden as the election comes closer.

In a series of interviews on MSNBC Sunday, revisited voters they'd met earlier in the election cycle in Kent County.

Katey Morse and her husband were both working full time, and their kids were in school back in March, but things quickly changed as the coronavirus spread throughout the country. Luckily, she and her husband didn't lose their jobs, but they, like many parents, are struggling to do virtual school for their kids.

"I'm turning into more of an angry person than I've ever been in my life," she said about how she feels politically, noting that it makes her sad. "I've just got a countdown to November now, and I'm hoping we'll wake up from this nightmare we're in."

Trump abusing the intelligence community in an attempt to keep them quiet about Russia election hacks: Conservative

Published

on

The New York Times Magazine piece outlining President Donald Trump's battles with the U.S. intelligence community revealed that Russia is continuing to wage its own cyberwar against the world. According to conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot, the devastating report explained the extent to which the president is ignoring the threats to the 2020 election.

“The options faced by the intelligence community during Trump’s presidency have been stark: avoid infuriating the president but compromise the agencies’ ostensible independence, or assert that independence and find yourself replaced with a more sycophantic alternative," wrote Robert Draper in his lengthy investigation into Trump's efforts to politicize international intelligence. According to Boot, the most shocking part of the investigation was that the experts in the intelligence community have been banned from speaking honestly about the Russian attacks.

‘Incompetent moron’ Chuck Todd ripped for letting Trump official claim Democrats want more COVID-19 deaths

Published

on

"Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd is under fire -- once again -- after letting Donald Trump's trade adviser Peter Navarro claim on NBC that Democrats want more Americans to die during the coronavirus pandemic to boost their chances at the polls in November.

Instead of pushing back the NBC host known for his lack of follow-up questions let the comment slide by responding, "I take your point."

Todd's failure to call out the Trump aide for what one Twitter commenter called a "disgusting" comment led to an avalanche of criticism for the MBC political director who recently saw his weekday show cut back to make room for more commentary by colleague Nicolle Wallace.
