On Wednesday’s episode of the ABC talk show “The View,” cohost Joy Behar showed the world once again that Donald Trump is living rent free in her head by saying that if he is indicted, she’s “having a big party.” Her cohost Meghan McCain, however, was not having any of it.
“You-know-who is back in the headlines thanks to New York’s D.A. convening a special grand jury in their investigation of whether he had a hand in his business committing criminal bank fraud, insurance fraud, and tax fraud, among other things,” said cohost Whoopi Goldberg.
“Of course, he’s denying all charges with his go-to it’s a politically motivated witch hunt claim. Joy, do you think he’s really worried about all this?” she asked.
“Well, you know, I was reading that 95 to 99% of all cases that go to the grand jury end up in indictments. So, I mean, I’m a betting woman. I say he could be indicted very easily,” Behar replied.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
“I think he’s probably trembling,” she said. “Of course, he’ll deny everything. It’s a witch hunt. When he was impeached, it’s a witch hunt. It’s always a witch hunt, and he’s always completely innocent”
“You know you’ll find his accountant, Weisselberg, under a bus any day,” Behar continued. “Ivanka, I don’t know who he is. He’s only been in the family for 30 years. Ivanka, stop it. When he’s indicted, I’m having a big party with Mexican food, a pinata, margaritas, everything. I can’t wait. I’m having a severe case of schadenfreude as we speak.”
McCain, however, warned Behar that she shouldn’t be celebrating this too soon, as she doesn’t feel that an indictment is likely.
“I just feel like I’ve been told for five years that he’s going to be handcuffed and trotted off into jail,” McCain said. “I’ll believe it when I see it.”

Whether Trump is indicted or not, McCain said that she feels he likely will not run for president again.
“I mean, there’s a lot of rumors about 2024 right now. I actually think he won’t end up running,” McCain said.
“I think he wants to see a lot of things that are happening in the world that he said would come true with Biden’s policies, and everything that I’ve heard through different channels is that he’s actually pretty happy right now and feeling good about his legacy,” she added.
