On Wednesday’s episode of “The View,” host Meghan McCain spoke out to slam former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, saying that it was “disgusting” for her to call for Trump to be given a “break” when it comes to the Capitol riots last month.
“They beat him up before he got into office and they’re beating him up after he leaves office,” Haley said at the end of January, according to Newsweek. “I mean at some point, give the man a break. I mean, move on if you truly are about moving on.”
McCain brought this up today while discussing the current impeachment effort.
“One thing that struck me was seeing President Trump talk about Mike Pence at his rally, and cutting to the footage of the people storming the Capitol and the vice president having to be rushed out immediately,” she said. “Words have ramifications. The rhetoric we put out have ramifications. You can see in realtime what happens when you call Vice President Mike Pence a traitor, and then people are storming the Capitol screaming ‘Traitor Pence.’ It’s something out of a dystopian science fiction movie.”
“I don’t understand how anyone could vote against impeachment, but I do logically when it comes to the politics— the ethics I don’t understand — but the politics of this is Republicans want to move on,” McCain added. “They want to walk the fine line of still being attached to Trump and not being attached to Trump. Nikki Haley said maybe in the most disgusting language I’ve ever heard, ‘Give the guy a break.’ Well, it’s hard for me to give President Trump a break when our vice president could have been killed because of the things he was saying.”
“I think that I would love to see more Republicans come out and do the right thing ethically, but politics is going to come in the middle of this,” she concluded.
