“The View” co-host Meghan McCain was in a “put up your dukes” mood Saturday when a GOP congressional hopeful questioned her definition of “hardcore conservative” after she said Elizabeth Warren deserves respect for being a woman getting into the political arena who “fights as hard as” Warren did.The Twitter exchange was instigated after McCain tweeted a video clip Thursday of Warren suspending her presidential campaign.“Any woman who gets in the arena and fights as hard as Elizabeth Warren did deserves respect (and I’m a hardcore conservative),” McCain wrote. “It is not an even playing field for us against men and I hope some day it finally will be. She also skillfully nuked Bloomberg from@space in the debates.”Also Read: Meghan McCain Lashes Out at 'Cruel' Coverage of 'The View' Drama: 'We All F- Up on the Show'Saturday morning, Josh Barnett, who is running for Congress in 2020 in McCain’s home state of Arizona and a pro-Trump Republican, responded to McCain. “I think your definition of ‘hardcore conservative’ and my definition of it are not the same,” he tweeted.It took no time at all for McCain to fire back, “Yeah if sucking trumps ass every second, of every day, you’re right, I’m not.”Barnett tried to explain himself, tweeting, “What I said was not meant to be an ‘attack’ by any means. People always trying to make something out of nothing.”But McCain, in rare form, shot back again.“I think you should take a look at how you just manspalined to me my political identity,” McCain wrote. “I am a national conservative co-host of the most watched American daytime talk show. I know who I am and what I believe. I don’t know why this is so threatening to some men such as yourself.”Also Read: Meghan McCain: 'I Was Laughing My Ass Off' at NYT Presidential EndorsementJust to make sure she was perfectly clear that he was sparring with an Arizonian who, therefore, was a constituent of his, she added, “Also pro tip for you congressional race. There are a lot of conservative women like me in Arizona and across the country…”And, with that, she dropped the mic.You can read their exchange below:Any woman who gets in the arena and fights as hard as Elizabeth Warren did deserves respect (and I’m a hardcore conservative).

During a chat with Andy Cohen on Wednesday’s “Watch What Happens Live,” Meghan McCain criticized media coverage of inter-host drama on “The View,” and called Whoopi Goldberg her “anchor” at the show.“It’s really cruel,” she said of the way she sees the media handling her “very small fight” with former co-host Abby Huntsman, who stepped down from the show a few weeks ago. McCain insisted the two are very good friends to this day and that she found it “bizarre” to see a single fight, which she admitted did happen, blown up publicly and “weaponized” by the media.McCain also downplayed the fight with Huntsman, a fellow conservative, and the reports that she was going to leave the show before Huntsman did. McCain assured Cohen if she had plans to leave the ABC show, she wouldn’t be cryptic about it, so Cohen moved on to the next headline-making fight she had on the show: The time Goldberg said to her in December, “Girl, please stop talking.”Also Read: Watch Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain Make Nice After 'The View' Spat: 'Things Get Heated on This Show'“It was rough and I will say that she was having a bad day and we talked about it that night and the next day. It’s live TV and it’s really intense, stressful times for everyone. I adore her. She apologized off-air. She apologized on-air. We all f–k up on the show. It’s live. It’s everyday. I forgive her and I love her,” McCain explained.“If she leaves, I go. Like, Whoopi is the anchor of the show and my life there and she always picks us up if we’re down,” she added.Read original story Meghan McCain Lashes Out at ‘Cruel’ Coverage of ‘The View’ Drama: ‘We All F– Up on the Show’ At TheWrap
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.”Also Read: New York Times Endorses Both Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren for 2020 Democratic PrimaryShe 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.‘NY TIMES’ ENDORSES WARREN, KLOBUCHAR: After ‘The New York Times’ editorial board broke tradition by endorsing two presidential candidates, the co-hosts question if they made the right decision. https://t.co/1091s9WYqN pic.twitter.com/kzHKtIjkRE\- The View (@TheView) January 21, 2020Read original story Meghan McCain: ‘I Was Laughing My Ass Off’ at NYT Presidential Endorsement At TheWrap
