The View Co-Hosts Spar Over Joe Biden’s Outburst

President Biden snapped at a reporter following a press conference on his European trip this week, and the incident led to a sparring session between two co-hosts on “The View.”

Meghan McCain and Whoopi Goldberg got into a heated exchange when discussing Biden’s reaction towards a CNN reporter.

“Just because Trump was so bad, it doesn’t absolve Biden’s bad behavior,” McCain said. “What he just did was 100 percent Trump-y. I just think I would like a little intellectual consistency. If Trump had done that, we would be screaming at the top of our lungs … one way or another.” 

The president apologized to the media for the upheaval minutes later before boarding a plane to the United States. Nonetheless, McCain stated that the Washington, D.C. media members are probably getting “sick of” Biden not being more available or only calling on preselected journalists. 

McCain’s statements led to a back and forth spar with Goldberg. 

“It’s the press’s job to speak truth to power,” McCain said. “And just because Biden has gotten a pass so far … It is no one’s best interest to continue to treat him like it’s state TV.” 

“Yeah, the thing I never saw Trump do was apologize to anybody,” Goldberg responded. “With all due respect, I don’t care that he’s apologizing; he just embarrassed himself,” McCain said.

“I don’t care that you don’t care,” Goldberg shot back. “Well, I don’t care that you don’t care, Whoopi, so we’re even,” McCain retorted. 

“Well then, good Meghan, then you can be how you always are,” Goldberg said as she threw the show to a commercial break. “You can be how you always are!” McCain responded.
