The View's Meghan McCain loses her mind as audience cheers socialism: 'This makes my head explode' [View all]


By Travis Gettys at Raw Story


The View” co-host Meghan McCain exploded in fury as the studio audience cheered a list of Democratic-Socialist campaign promises, and vowed to keep those political ideas from becoming “normalized.”

The show’s panelists discussed sexist attacks against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and the conversation continued past a commercial break into a debate over her differences with the Democratic Party and the policies she had proposed.

“We had her on this show, and I asked her this question, what do you mean by Democratic-Socialist?” said co-host Sunny Hostin. “She went over her platform: Medicare for all, fully funded public schools and universities, paid family and sick leave, justice reform, immigration justice, infrastructure overhaul, clean campaign finance, economy of peace, housing as a human right.”

Co-host Joy Behar greeted each proposal with words of encouragement, and the audience cheered when Hostin finished listing the policies.

“That sounds like a successful country,” Behar said.
