McCain Wrecks Her ‘View’ Co-Hosts for Backing Iran President’s ‘Mental Retardation’ Remark About Trump

For “The View” co-host Meghan McCain, supporting Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s remark that President Donald Trump has a mental disability is going too far.

The Iran president responded to new sanctions placed on Iran late Thursday by the U.S. — after a U.S. drone was shot down by an Iranian missile and Trump called off a military strike in response on Friday — and claimed on Tuesday that the White House is “afflicted by mental retardation.” Rouhani added that the sanctions are “closing the doors of diplomacy.”

During Wednesday’s segment of “The View,” co-hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg defended the Iranian president’s “mental retardation” remarks.

While co-host Sunny Hostin disagreed with the “inappropriate” statement by the Iranian president, Goldberg and Behar quickly responded with laughter, “Why? We say it. Everybody says it.”

“He’s a foreign leader and I don’t think we should cheer the fact that a foreign government is talking about our president in that way,” Hostin answered in defense.

McCain also pushed back on her co-hosts, saying that unlike Iran, the U.S. doesn’t “throw gay people off of roofs” or “stone women in the streets for wearing tank tops.” She then directed to the Iranian president, “How dare you judge what we do in our country.”

“Let us not forget what is happening to gay people in this country,” Goldberg said, as McCain responded, “But they’re not being killed. … But it’s not illegal to be gay here.” “Not yet, not yet,” Goldberg responded.

Watch the video below:

Following the Iranian leader’s remark, Trump tweeted on Tuesday, “Iran’s very ignorant and insulting statement, put out today, only shows that they do not understand reality.”

“Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration,” he added. “No more John Kerry & Obama!

Riddle me this View host: if a “mental retard” beat your candidate in 2016, what does this make you or her?

Note also that your defense of “mental retardation” puts the lie to your political correctness.
