Meghan McCain didn’t hold back in letting her fellow The View hosts know they’ve done a bad job in convincing her to vote for a Democratic candidate.
Even though she’s not voting for Donald Trump either.
In fact, their convincing skills are “piss poor”, according to John McCain’s 35-year-old daughter.
The panel was discussing Michael Bloomberg’s recent surge in the polls for the Democratic candidacy. Meghan then brought up a “particularly problematic” video from 2011 that’s circulated online where he said:
There’s this enormous cohort of black and Latino males… that don’t have jobs, don’t have any prospects, don’t know how to find jobs, don’t know what their skillsets are, don’t know how to behave in the workplace.
Co-host Joy Behar rushed to his defence to say Bloomberg's done “a lot for the black community too”.
She then proceeded to list some of the (terrible) things Donald Trump has said and done in the past.
I’m not defending Trump because I’m attacking Bloomberg.
Joy then pressed Meghan on who she was planning to vote for in the November presidential election, to which she responded:
Who I vote for is none of your business but I’m not voting for Trump and I sure as hell am not voting for Bloomberg.
Then came the fiery line from Meghan:
You know what, you guys have done a piss-poor job of convincing me that I should vote for a Democrat.
The response on social media was swift, with many wondering why Meghan couldn’t just make up her mind herself without having to be convinced on who to vote for.
In response to people on social media referencing Meghan’s father and his feud with Donald Trump, Meghan said it was unfair to “exploit my family pain and grief for cheap political shots”.
Meghan and her father John have a long and strained history with President Donald Trump.
She's previously referred to her father as Donald Trump's "kryptonite in life and death" after the POTUS slammed John McCain for his ties to the controversial Russia dossier and his vote against repealing Obamacare.
While referencing John McCain previously voting to kill the Affordable Care Act, Donald Trump also implied John McCain was in hell.
Then while speaking at her father's funeral in 2018, Meghan subtly remarked:
We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness, the real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who live lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served.
Joy Behar is yet to publicly comment on the fiery exchange.
