While Michelle Wolf‘s White House Correspondents’ Dinner routine mocked President Donald Trump‘s administration, Meghan McCain thinks he’ll be the one with the last laugh.
“I will say this is a big gift to Trump supporters,” McCain said Tuesday on The View.
“And there’s already this implication when you hear people like Jim Acosta saying Trump supporters…their elevators don’t go to the top floor, there’s an idea that the media, especially in D.C., hate the Trump administration, hate Republicans, hate people in the middle of the country,” she added.
McCain said there was a time when she attended the dinner with her father, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), but that “once it started turning into this sort of like celebrity Oscar red carpet event,” she decided “this isn’t something I really want to be a part of.”
“It was about the celebration of journalism and the First Amendment,” Sunny Hostin said, adding that she felt Acosta’s comment was “completely taken out of context.”
