On Friday morning’s episode of The View, Meghan McCain – the View’s resident fake conservative – was asked whether the outrage over Joe Biden’s recent comments – where he accused Republican leaders opening their states of ‘Neanderthal Thinking’ – was ‘manufactured outrage’ or a ‘real problem.’ McCain responded that she doesn’t think that this is manufactured outrage at all. In fact, she thinks Republicans are justified.
Meghan said that Biden backed himself into a corner, “the problem is, if you are President Biden, you have said that this is going to be the soul of the nation’s going to come back; we’re going to have a complete and utter paradigm shift; angels are going to come down from the sky, and there’s going to be nothing but unity in the country.” She argues that the comment is a self-inflicted wound.
“It really reminds me of Hillary Clinton’s deplorable comment; Meghan said ‘a lot of people on the left wrote off’ the comment and ‘it really ended up hurting her.’ Now she says that the newest insult will make Republicans less likely to unify with their Democrat counterparts.

“You guys can laugh and say, ‘oh, it’s a joke, whatever,’ but Republicans across the country already feel like people on the left think they’re dumb rednecks; they’re just stupid deplorables in baskets, nobody cares with their trucks and flags. That’s what Republicans think the media thinks of them.” Meghan McCain said, “I was actually surprised to hear him throw around that language.”
She didn’t stop there. Meghan went on to say how worse the issue was getting after the Biden administration’s failure to produce the President of the United States to the press without his handlers. She also blames White House press secretary Jen Psaki for “blowing off Republican questions and Republican talking points.”
“All it does is going to help Republicans be more tribal and think that we’re just deplorable Neanderthals. The left has no place for us, so there’s no unity whatsoever, and I think it’s – I think it’s really unfortunate. I don’t like it at all,” Meghan McCain stated.
Somehow, Joy Behar attempted to shift the blame from Biden to Trump, saying that the deplorable comment came before Trump and that President Trump was really mean and his supporters deserved that title. Behar said, “So in reaction to Trump, nothing sounds that bad because of how bad he was, and then he had – he might have had a conference, you know, his press conference right away, but then he dropped out. We never saw him again. He was afraid to take calls.”
President Trump was the most accessible president of our lifetime, and no amount of Behar double speak will change that fact. He was ruthlessly treated in the press because of the amount of face time President Trump gave them. Meghan shockingly defended President Trump saying, “But it was President Trump doing one-on-one interviews with the press corps which President Biden has not done.”
She continued, “I will say also that President Trump called the gang group MS-13 animals, and the media jumped all over it for weeks. I have no problem calling vicious gang members animals, and that was something the media just took and ran with, and I think if it’s not okay to call gang members animals, but it’s okay to call Republicans in the middle of the country Neanderthals. It just seems like a lot of hypocrisy.”
