Yet another argument broke out between Joy Behar and Meghan McCain on the ABC talk show “The View” this morning as the two went at it over President Donald Trump’s State of the Union tonight.
As the women talked about Trump’s upcoming speech, Behar fantasized about how it would go, expressing her hopes that the president would “go off-script and be completely nuts. That’s what I’m praying for.” Unfortunate for her, however, McCain was also on the panel to give her a nice dose of reality.
“Tonight is the State of the Union and I’m hoping people will watch because we have to talk about it tomorrow. It’s like a homework assignment,” Behar said at the beginning of the segment.
“I’m just hoping, you know, let’s watch the body language, you know?” she later continued. “Nancy Pelosi’s going to be sitting behind him, and I’m hoping she’ll have a sign that says ‘impeach.’ Nadler and Schiff and those guys are going to be right in front which will freak him out.”
McCain was not having any of Behar’s liberal fantasy.
“It’s not going to freak him out,” she told her.
Behar took a brief pause to say that Trump needs to be “presidential,” but she quickly went back to her radical side to add there was no way this would happen.
“Like he’s going to be presidential,” she scoffed. “There’s no way this guy knows how to be presidential, and I’m hoping he’ll just get freaked out, go off script and be completely nuts. That’s what I’m praying for.”
TRUMP PLANNING IMPEACHMENT-FREE SOTU? With Pres. Trump set to head to the Capitol to deliver his third State of the Union address, the co-hosts question if he’ll end up discussing the impeachment trial. https://t.co/eV448A7xd2 pic.twitter.com/8cm9sTAr30

Behar and her liberal cohost Sunny Hostin proceeded to fantasize about the things they’d like to hear Trump talk about, from impeachment to their favorite “kids in cages” narrative. Finally, McCain stepped in to shut them both down.
“This is a pipe dream, and I love you, but this is a pipe dream,” McCain said. “He’s going to take a victory lap over the impeachment, he’s going to take a victory lap over the cluster that just happened in Iowa, and now he has the State of the Union which is this huge audience in front of all of America, and in this moment he’s doing pretty well. I mean, I just don’t think the idea he’s going to decombust in front of the State of the Union is logical.”
McCain could not be more right. Despite what crazed leftists in the media like Behar say, Trump’s numbers are good right now, so he has no reason to have a meltdown. Behar can keep fantasizing about Trump’s down fall, but a fantasy is all that is. With America thriving under Trump, Behar should get used to the fact that he’s going to be in the White House for another four years.
