Meghan McCain: ‘I Was Laughing My Ass Off’ at NYT Presidential Endorsement

Meghan McCain says she reacted to the New York Times editorial board’s dual endorsement of senators Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar by “laughing my ass off.”

“First of all, you’re endorsing two women with two completely ideologically different views on their platforms,” “The View” co-host said on the show Tuesday, before adding that everyone will have to “choose one” of the two very different candidates.

“This is not how this works,” continued McCain, who worked on her father’s John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign. “Also, on the final point of this, you chose both of the women. Just say, ‘I want a woman. I don’t really care about politics. I don’t care about anything else.’ Just double down on identity politics.”

She called the two-way endorsement a “huge act of cowardice” and noted she didn’t expect much else from a “garbage publication.” That caused co-host Joy Behar to chime in, arguing she didn’t agree the Times is a “garbage publication.”

“It is now,” McCain said, but Behar cautioned against condemning the whole newspaper for “one incident.”

The Times’ editorial board put all pre-endorsement presidential candidate interviews on the record for the first time ahead of the big double endorsement. Last week, deputy editorial page editor Kathleen Kingsbury announced the intention to make it the “most transparent” endorsement in the editorial board’s history.
