During an appearance on “The View” Wednesday, co-host Meghan McCain and her mother Cindy schooled President Donald Trump down on his lack of empathy and humanity.“I really was under the impression that this fight between our families and between him and my father, especially at this particular moment, would end,” Meghan said. It didn’t.
Watch the full discussion below:
“To have this moment of CPAC, which is supposed to be the mothership of conservatism and the Republican Party and to see booing at this specific moment in time was very hurtful,” Meghan continued. “And I feel quite frankly very naive to have believed that this would have been any different.”
“From my own feeling — we need more compassion,” Mrs. McCain said. “We need more empathy. We need more togetherness in terms of working together. We don’t need more bullying and I’m tired of it.”
Co-host Sunny Hostin agreed, wondering when it would end, but Behar said that it’s never going to stop because it simply isn’t in Trump’s nature. She recalled when Trump mocked McCain for being captured during Vietnam.
“It’s like the lowest level of character you can find,” Behar continued.
“His ego doesn’t allow for others to have accolades,” said co-host Whoopi Goldberg about the president. “Whether they agree or not, people love your dad because he knows what is right and will stand up. It’s why (Trump is) so pissed at Obama. Obama is off doing his thing, he doesn’t care, but he has to keep bringing him up because he has to show he’s doing better than Obama. Everything has to be bigger and better and everything has to be this. And when it comes to things where his failings are clear, he has to try to take down.”
