An awkward moment took place on the ABC talk show “The View” this morning when Whoopi Goldberg tried to compare Mitt Romney, R-UT., to the late Arizona Senator John McCain. She was then immediately shut down by her cohost Meghan McCain, the deceased Republican’s daughter.
On Wednesday, Romney was the only Republican senator to break party lines by voting to convict President Trump on impeachment charges. While “The View’s” panel discussed this, Goldberg said that Romney’s actions reminded her of McCain.
“I’m just glad somebody stood up and said ‘no,’” Goldberg said. ”I’m going to give faith in him like I gave to your dad.”
Meghan, however, was not having any of it.
“With all due respect, Mitt Romney is nothing like my dad,” she fired back.
Undeterred, Goldberg continued to try and make this point, saying Romney deserves the same credit McCain would have gotten.
“I don’t agree with Mitt Romney but he stood up in a way that nobody else has, except for your dad,” Goldberg said.
“Don’t put all your bets on Romney right now, he will break your heart like he always does,” Meghan replied.
“I’m 63 years old,” Goldberg said to her cohost. “I have been going through this with these people for years.”
McCain then said that it was “very dismissive” for Goldberg to bring up age.
“I don’t know what my age has to do with my political perspective right now. I just don’t think it’s very nice,” she told the liberal.
The two continued to go back and forth until their cohost Joy Behar interrupted to say that she “hates” Trump. How original!
Considering the fact that Romney betrayed the entire Republican Party yesterday due to his own jealousy and bitterness, it’s understandable that Meghan does not want him being compared to her father. Shame on Goldberg for trying to make this comparison, and good for Meghan for not letting her get away with it.
