The daughter of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), “The View” co-host Meghan McCain, clashed with her colleague, Joy Behar, while discussing why the Democrats do not have the 2020 presidential election “in the bag.”
Things got heated during “The View” on Wednesday as the ladies talked about President Donald Trump‘s re-election kickoff rally in Orlando, Florida, on Tuesday, which had people camping out for nearly two days before and was attended by Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).
McCain pointed out the large number of people waiting in line overnight for the rally as well as that the “arena was completely packed” for the president’s first campaign rally as Behar pushed back, saying that “there’s always people who would do that.”
The Fox News alumnae fired back, proclaiming that she didn’t know if there were similar crowds of people who would camp out for a Democratic candidate’s campaign rally “40 hours” beforehand.
“Not yet,” Behar quipped before McCain pushed back again saying it was not “fake news.”

McCain went on to say that some of the president’s supporters do not necessarily “love” him so much as they “hate the same things Trump hates.”
“Who? Black people, you mean?” Behar responded. “And immigrants?”
“The View” co-host fired back at Behar, proclaiming that she appeared on the show “every day, open-minded just trying to explain it” and that it was “not a fun job” for her.
“I know you’re angry. I get it that you’re angry that Trump’s president, like a lot of people are,” McCain blasted. “But I don’t think yelling at me is going to fix the problem.
“I’m trying to explain why 2020 is not in the bag for you,” she added. “It’s not.”
As IJR Red previously reported, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel took to Twitter to back up the president’s claim that “over 100,000” ticket requests came in for the rally and proclaimed that “no Democrat can match that enthusiasm.”
