The View’s Meghan McCain erupts over criticism of the GOP — until Whoopi Goldberg finally cuts her off

Published

on

“The View” host Whoopi Goldberg threatened to go to commercial break if Meghan McCain and Joy Behar didn’t stop arguing.

The disagreement started in Monday’s opening segment, when Behar claimed Republicans didn’t care about education and McCain objected to the broad-brush criticism of her political party, and then bled into the second segment.

“I want to make one thing clear,” Behar said, during a discussion of the White House turning on Dr. Anthony Fauci. “When I speak about Republicans, Meghan, I’m talking about the leadership in Congress, I’m not talking about the run-of-the-mill Republican voter. So do not say that to me again, okay?”

McCain immediately fired back.

“As the only Republican in mainstream media, when you talk like that, it puts us on the defense because it sounds accusatory,” McCain said. “Republicans don’t care about X, Republicans don’t care about Y. I vote Republican, I’m voting for these people.”

Then she launched a partisan attack on her own.

“Fairfax County is used as an example of one of the worst examples of public schooling and how they’ve handled this crisis and how they’ve handled remote learning in Virginia, and that’s with a Democrat running it,” McCain said, as Behar tried to interject. “All I want is for us at this show to lead by example and not be part of the problem and come in being accusatory.”

Behar kept trying to respond, but McCain ran roughshod over her attempts.

“When you attack Republicans in power, you are attacking their voters, and it’s going to help him get re-elected, Joy,” McCain said.

Goldberg grew increasingly frustrated by their off-topic argument, and finally put a stop to the dispute.

“I swear to God if you don’t stop, I’m going to take us to break again,” Goldberg said.

McCain wasn’t finished yet.

“I didn’t bring this up,” she said. “We were moving onto another topic. Joy brought it up.”

Experts issue dire warning on Trump executive action on unemployment insurance

Published

on

"Literally every new detail about these executive orders confirms that in addition to being wildly unconstitutional, they will do absolutely nothing to help anyone who's suffering."

On top of serious questions about the directive's legality and workability, experts are warning that President Donald Trump's executive action to extend the federal boost to unemployment benefits at $400-per-week—using $44 billion in funds meant for disaster relief—leaves out the poorest Americans by design.

Senior officials battling White House over urgent risk of reopening schools

Published

on

Public health officials are increasingly worried that states -- especially in the South -- are not seriously considering the coronavirus risks associated with reopening schools.

Trump administration officials have insisted to governors that reopening schools could be done safely, but senior officials have recently pressed White House officials to improve their messaging about the potential risks, reported The Daily Beast.

“If you have Trump going out there and saying everything is fine there’s a risk that that’s what people are going to think going back,” said one senior official. “There’s a real possibility that counties won’t implement all the measures outlined in the [Centers for Disease Control] guidelines and will just say, ‘Look, we’re doing the best we can and that’s it.’ There’s no one to enforce that stuff.”

WATCH: COVID truther goes on wild rant about communism after getting pulled over by cops

A South Carolina woman this week was caught on video going on a wild rant about Jesus and communism after a police officer pulled her over because her anti-vaccination signs were completely obscuring her car's rear window.

The video shows that the woman was driving a car that was covered in signs that protested not just economic shut downs, but also simply testing people for COVID-19.

After the officer pulled her over, she demanded to see his badge number and started yelling at him.

The officer tried to calm her down and told her there was no reason to be upset.

"Oh, no reason to get upset just because we're in communist Greenville, South Carolina?!" she yelled back. "I am not being disorderly! I have freedom of speech! You're being disorderly!"
