On Tuesday morning, Joy Behar told anti-Trump Republican Meghan McCain that she “did not miss her” during the months that she was away. McCain has been back from her maternity leave on “The View” for only two days following her child’s birth in September.
Things got heated when Behar said that while the Democrats may have infighting between moderates and the far-left, the Republican Party faces worse issues.
“The Republican Party is in much more trouble right now,” Behar said, which McCain interrupted to say, “Are you kidding me?”
“Excuse me, am I done? I’m not done,” Behar shot back.
“It’s just, that’s completely inaccurate,” McCain said, as she refused to back down. “You have AOC fighting right now about whether or not she’s going to end up primarying Chuck Schumer, coming out and not saying she has the full support of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. You have ‘The Squad’ that’s coming out very intensely, very angry that Biden hasn’t filled his cabinet with more progressives. Bernie Sanders also coming out saying he’s angry. The idea that there isn’t fighting within the Democratic Party as well is…”
This time it was Behar who interrupted McCain. She said that she was “talking about traitors.”
“This is why you missed me so much when I was on maternity leave; you missed me so much. You missed fighting with me,” McCain retaliated.
“I did not. I did not miss you,” Behar said. McCain became visibly annoyed at this.
“That’s so nasty; I was teasing,” McCain responded. “That’s so rude.”
