Meghan McCain Goes ‘Rogue’ on The View: ‘You Feckless Unpatriotic Cowards!’

Meghan McCain calls herself a Republican, but she uses many opportunities on ‘The View’ to attack President Donald Trump and his supporters. Earlier today, she unloaded on the president for his decision to pull troops out of Syria.

McCain said during the show that she was going to shift the discussion topic away from impeachment and the whistleblower complaint, and pivot to the Syria topic. She also didn’t want to talk about the fact that it was cohost Joy Behar’s birthday.

She said, “I’m going a little bit rogue but I’ve been so mad this morning and so upset about this news that we are abandoning our Kurdish allies in the Middle East. These are allies of ours that American soldiers are still continuing to fight alongside. All we did was arm them and they fought for America.”

McCain continued, as she shook her head, “Right now we’re just saying we’re just going to leave them and abandon them and to everyone in the White House and every Republican who was mad that President Obama pulled out of Iraq, you feckless unpatriotic cowards! I cannot believe this is where we’re at diplomatic-wise and I cannot — what message is this sending to our allies and American troops who have fought and died for this?”

Behar, seizing any opportunity to be negative about the Trump Administration, said to McCain, “It’s very important. Why do you think this administration has decided to do it?”

“It is — he ran on isolationism which again I think is bat-crap insane for a whole variety of reasons,” McCain responded. “It might be a wag the dog situation. When people say we’re sick of fighting them we can fight them over there or we can fight them over here. I am a person who believes this will only get worse as it did when we left Iraq.”

McCain’s father, the late Senator John McCain, was a vocal opponent of President Trump.
