Meghan McCain Blasts Joy Behar For Criticizing Trump During 'The View's' Bush Tribute

Meghan McCain lashed out at Joy Behar for criticizing President Donald Trump on Monday during a George H.W. Bush tribute segment on ABC's The View.

The segment started as a look back at Bush's legacy and ended with a shouting match between the co-hosts after Behar seemingly used the opportunity to denounce Trump by comparing the two presidents.

Before the argument arose, co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Abby Huntsman, and McCain discussed Bush's life accomplishments.

"He seemed to be coming from a loving, kind place," Behar added. "That's what I'm gleaning from what they're talking about, that he was loving."

"He was also known for his humility as president," McCain, the conservative commentator and daughter of deceased U.S. Senator John McCain (R-Ariz), said.

Later in the segment, Behar began discussing Bush's decision to sign the Clean Air Act Amendment of 1990 and segued to criticizing Trump.

"As a candidate, he said 'those who think we're powerless to do anything about the greenhouse effect are forgetting about the White House effect,'" she said. "Then he signed into law the Clean Air Act Amendment of 1990, one of the most sweeping environmental statutes ever."

"This president that we have now is trying to unravel everything that he did and Obama did," Behar continued. "And if I ever become a one-issue voter, it will be about pollution and the greenhouse effect and the fact that..."

During her statement, McCain attempted to cut Behar's sentence short, asking her to steer the discussion back to honoring Bush instead.

"Can we focus on the [former] president, please? I don't want to talk about Trump," McCain interrupted.

Behar immediately snapped back: "Well, I do for a second, so excuse me!"

The conversation then starts to digress into an argument, with both co-hosts talking over each other.

"We are honoring a great president who passed…," McCain said, before Behar quickly responded: "Excuse me for a second, please. I want to talk about the differences…"

"But we're honoring… But I'm not interested in your one-issue voter when our president just passed," McCain continued.

Behar added: "I don't care what you're interested in because I'm talking! Damn it."

"I don't care what you're interested in either," McCain replied, before co-host Whoopi Goldberg abruptly announced a commercial break.

The broadcast came just three days after news broke of Bush's passing last Friday. The late-41st President of the United States was 94-years-old. Bush's coffin arrived at the Capitol on Monday afternoon.
