SURPRISE: Meghan McCain Says She ‘Regrets’ Calling Hillary Clinton ‘Crooked’ Last Year
In a newly published interview, Meghan McCain, daughter of the late globalist John McCain (R-AZ), claims she regrets referring to failed presidential candidate and wife of Jeffrey Epstein associate President Bill Clinton as “Crooked Hillary” during an appearance on “The View”.
Losing more of her Republican bona fides by the day, McCain explained in an interview with Elle that she regrets referring to Clinton as “Crooked Hillary” during an episode of “The View”, stating that she worries she helped to polarize the United States.
“My presence on the show has been, ‘Nobody’s going to bully me, nobody’s going to talk down to me, and nobody’s going to pull the kind of shit that’s been pulled on a lot of people in this chair. And I will be vocal, and I will live in the moment, for better or worse,’ ” McCain says defiantly, before backpedaling. “I should be better at being less reactive.” She remembers one night last year when she went out with her colleagues for drinks and got tipsy. The next morning, when it was time to film, she carried the convivial attitude of the previous night onto the show, and a crass line slipped out of her mouth: “I call her Crooked Hillary!” she said. “I hate Hillary Clinton.” McCain is still embarrassed about it. “I apologized on TV and said that I was contributing to the polarization of this country. I really regret saying that. She was friends with my dad. It’s really not fair.”
McCain, theoretically a Republican, reportedly plans to endorse former vice president Joe Biden in 2020, should his campaign last that long. She recently called his family “resilient” on Twitter.
The daughter of a late “Republican” Senator praised the family of former vice president and 2020 Democratic Party presidential candidate on Thursday, calling the family “resilient.”
@JoeBiden @DrBiden & the entire Biden family today – four years after the passing of their son Beau. You are a wonderful, resilient family and your strength through pain continues to inspire me every day,” said Meghan McCain, daughter of late John McCain on Twitter.
Beau Biden died of brain cancer in 2015. He was 46. The McCain patriarch died of brain cancer last year.
She also gave advice on tactics to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and the group of women who would later be known as “The Squad” in an episode of “The View”:
Meghan McCain, daughter of deceased Sen. John McCain, also came to Pelosi’s defense, saying she admired that she is still in government when she could be “retired” with her “children and grandchildren.”
McCain also gave advice to Democrats, suggesting they stop infighting, as it will make them weaker to Republican challengers and President Donald Trump, prompting Behar to declare the president a fascist.
Perhaps not surprisingly, McCain agreed with Behar, labeling President Trump a fascist.
McCain’s political loyalties seem uncertain as she continues to ease into her position at “The View”, and her allegiance to the Republican Party becomes less overt.
