Joy Behar Snaps at Meghan McCain After She Suggests They Should Focus on Bush’s Legacy Instead of Bashing Trump

Meghan McCain ignited some fireworks on “The View” on Monday after co-host Joy Behar used former President George H.W. Bush’s death to bash the president currently in office.

Behar had just quoted Bush commenting on the greenhouse effect, explaining that he also passed the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990.

“This president that we have now is trying to unravel everything that he did and Obama did — and if I ever become a one-issue voter, it will be about pollution,” Behar said.

McCain chimed in, asking if the panel could avoid talking about President Donald Trump.

“I don’t want to talk about Trump,” McCain said before Behar responded, “Well, I do.”

McCain eventually told Behar that she wasn’t “interested” in her one-issue voting.

“I don’t care what you’re interested in. I’m talking,” Behar shot back.

Watch the video below:

The segment ended with co-host Whoopi Goldberg going to a commercial break. As the camera zoomed out, viewers could see Behar and McCain continuing to argue.

Watch “The View’s” other comments on Bush:

McCain, as IJR previously noted, tweeted praise for the former president after his death last week.

“I am incredibly saddened by the passing of President George H Bush,” she said. “A member of the greatest generation and a real hero in his right.”

I think they should have gotten rid of Bahar years ago. I haven’t watched The Veiw in many years because of her!

Nothing about joy gives me reason to like her. She seems like a bitter person who has been given too much time and money for her OPINION. Come to think of it… all of those women are overpaid opinionated wannabe or has been. Truthfully..I would do it in a heartbeat. Only in America. Haha

She reportedly had more to say after the cameras stopped rolling too. Read more: https://ijr.com/joy-behar-meghan-mccain-bush/

The real haters

I hate The View and it’s cast members. All they do is bash President Trump. They never have intelligent discussions. I don’t see why Joy got her feelings hurt when Kid Rock called her the “B” word. She sits there and talks crap about lots of people. My mother always told me that, “If you can’t take it, then don’t dish it out.”

LOL…Guess you missed that show. Her feelings were not hurt.Her castmates stated that if someone calls one of them a B, then they call ALL of them a “B.” Joy invited Kid Rock to the show for a beer. Think about it. If someone you don’t know and they do not know you, calls you any name, would you care? Joy is 76 yr old, not 7 or 6.

Republicans started the whole conservation movement. President Trump has said that he is all for clean air! Leftists like Joy Behr mischaracterize Republicans on a continuous basis but aside from that, she’s just not a nice nor a polite person. She is a typical hate-filled Leftist. I don’t know how much they pay Meghan to have to endure being in the proximity of the Leftists on the View, to be forced to listen to them and be associated with them daily but its not enough.

Millie, Did she call Stormy Horseface? Say Megyn Kelly looked as if she had blood coming from wherever? Call Rosie a pig? Omarosa a dog? Did she insult 2 Gold Star families? Did she call Central American and African countries “sh-tholes.”? That is not typical hate filled behavior of ANYONE in the country, with the exception of TRUMP. Joy has been on the show since’s its inception—Meghan just over 1 yr. She is not the only R on the show-Abby’s father is Ambassador to Russia.

I dunno I just think that Whoopi and Joy’s dressing rooms smell like 5-day old tuna and egg salad sandwiches. CNN did the same thing. One line honoring Bush then the entire chicken coop started Clucktump , Trumpcluckk, clutrumpck, cltrumpuck, cluck , cluck , disgusting bunch of progressive/socialist, Marxists . The greatest propaganda campaign since WWII is and has been going on for at least 15/20 years. Unfortunately, it’s working

What is the basis for what you call “think”?

Imagine a day at IJR without a post on The View.

Doesn’t it just make you angry? Good, thats the point of the articles. But you are supposed to be angry at brainless liberals, not IJR.

I. Chin
Member

Nah. It’s disappointing, but not worth emotion.

I’m still waiting for evidence that this site is NOT subsidized by The View or one of its “hostesses”.

Phoenix
Member

Yeah, but you are rational.

These articles are specifically to make Democrats look stupid. And for that goal, the View is perfect and provide endless material.

I. Chin
Member

I still object to the angry comment. I don’t agree that these articles make the Dims look stupid. That’s obvious. They are….amusing.

I take a sadistic glee in poking them, invalidating their stupidity, and forcing them to defend their “reasons”, (a reasoning Lefty, that’s any oxymoron) but because they are so obviously parroting what their “betters” have said.

Phoenix
Member

Ha ok, the idea of these types of articles is to continue discussion on a stupid Democrats are then. Is that better? Why else would they post these articles as they are surely not news. And don’t say investments between IJR and the view.

No reasoning lefty? After all of our chats? I’m hurt! I’m kidding – i don’t watch the view, but it hardly seems like they budge much on their initial reaction to something.

But to his point, it’s more like a gossip column/article than news. I don’t come here for gossip and who doesn’t know that Joy Behar is a b*tch? Why expect anything different from someone that you know is a lunatic leftist? They are amusing, at most, but inconsequential in the realm of things that matter.

Phoenix
Member

I agree Serenity. I think they are fluff pieces that get a lot of views simply because it gets people riled. I am in no way arguing these are actual news articles.

I’m arguing they are meant to inflame and nothing more.

I. Chin
Member

…or maybe they’re considered “entertainment” news.

I. Chin

Phoenix and Serenity, I agree that The View is a non-sequitur in terms of serious news. I also agree that articles on it are here largely as “clickbait” for the bored.

To me, it seems that the IJR journalists use the controversial discussions at The View to trigger conservatives. At least that’s what I see through the evidence because the posts get lots of views (20.7K) and comments. It works nearly every time.

Phyllis Softa

Everyone seems to want to claim victimhood . The media wants to help them with that mission. The View has as many “views” voiced as individuals at the table. They are an easy target. Old folks can claim disagreement with the young’s opinions—conservative viewers can disagree with the liberal views while moderates can disagree with both. Liberal media uses Sean Hannity and Judge Jeanine to fulfill the Left’s need for victimhood. Division is what we have in America.

Rocky Drummond

As an outsider of The View, that sounds logical.

I promised myself a long time ago not watch / listen to shows that are filled with acrimony and have never seen more than a few clips from the show. My life seems better for doing that.
