Meghan McCain took Friday off of The View this week for “personal reasons.” If I didn’t know any better, I might wonder if that had anything to do with her choice words for Friday’s guest, Rand Paul on the show earlier this week.
In a rare moment of concern for people other than herself, McCain spent a good deal of time this week lamenting President Trump’s abandonment of the U.S.’s Kurdish allies. About Paul’s support for the decision, McCain said, “Any time Rand Paul is on the side of an issue, you can automatically assume it’s probably a bad one.”
She’s not ready for Republicans to have to take responsibility for their previous bad policies though, suggesting that too-harsh criticisms of conservatives like former President Bush and, of course, her father, led to President Trump. Sorry, but we can’t all just forget it and get along.
