Co-host of “The View,” Meghan McCain, said she “hates” Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) after he called for the media to publish the name of the whistleblower who filed a complaint that led to House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
On Tuesday, co-host Whoopi Goldberg showed a clip of Paul’s comments during a segment on the impeachment inquiry, “Here’s what senator — ugh,” during Goldberg’s pause, McCain injected “I hate him.”
Watch the exchange below:
On Monday, Paul called for the media to publish the name of the whistleblower during a Trump rally, as IJR has previously reported:
“I say tonight to the media, do your job and print his name.”
The co-hosts of “The View” took issue with that. McCain said Paul sounds “crazy,” “He sounds so crazy. Why does he sound so crazy? He does.”
Goldberg responded, “Because he’s forgotten the rule of law.”
Joy Behar said she was upset that Paul was asking the media to break the law, “It’s against the law to reveal the whistleblower’s identity. And now he’s telling the media to break the law. Why don’t you break the law, and then you go to jail, Rand.”
