Meghan McCain is likely one of the most controversial co-hosts The View has ever had. The conservative pundit has sparred together with her fellow panelists over time for his or her opposing views on politics. Last week Elisabeth Hasselbeck, a fellow Republican voice joined the panel, and it really made McCain appear reasonable which followers loved. However, she made a remark that McCain has now resurfaced and referred to as her out on it.

What did Meghan McCain say?

The women of The View have been speaking about how Donald Trump has modified his tone in how he’s dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. Guest co-host Sara Haines stated that she finds extra consolation in medical doctors and scientists and never a lot in politicians.

One of the problems got here up was that many individuals weren’t taking it critically as a result of Fox News was following Trump’s beat, who initially referred to as it a hoax.

“I’ve worked in conservative media for my entire life,” McCain stated. “There are a lot of people that are only listening to Fox News on this. I saw the tone in this country start to change — Again, we were raging about this for a long time — the tone started changing when Fox started changing. That to me is concerning for older people, where we have a harder time convincing to take this more seriously.”

After watching a viral video the place it reveals Fox News anchors shifting their protection on the coronavirus following Trump’s lead, McCain praised Tucker Carlson. She stated that it was him that modified Trump’s place on taking the pandemic critically.

McCain stated that she feels she’s “the only conservative in the entire world left on mainstream media.” She typically feels getting “tribal” feeling all the things is an “attack” on the president or Republicans.

“By the way, we had it happen on this show as well, not with me,” McCain continued. “We had it occur on this present, lest we neglect, some Republican saying that we should always wash our arms and pray it away. It wasn’t simply on Fox News that it was taking place, it occurred proper right here on The View.”

What did Elisabeth Hasselbeck say?

Last week, Hasselbeck made an look on The View as a visitor co-host. The coronavirus pandemic was the subject on the desk and she or he praised Trump for a way he was dealing with the problem.

“There can be a fine line between what is taking precaution and what is panic,” she stated. “Yes, we’re going to take precautions, we’re going to Purell, pray that God’s got us in our tomorrows, right? We pray that this coronavirus is extinguished, that it’s stopped in its tracks.” 

“I think we should prepare. I think we should pray. I’m not going to let coronavirus rule me!” she added.

Change in tone

McCain calling out Hasselbeck was out of the left-field as conservative voices often band collectively. When Goldberg introduced the previous View co-host was going to guest-host, McCain was seemingly excited to share the panel together with her.

“She’s the only woman I would give up my chair for,” McCain stated. “She can sit in the conservative chair anytime. She’s the OG. I love her.”
