“The View” co-host Meghan McCain took aim Thursday at freshman Democrats such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) for their recent attacks on Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), saying Pelosi “deserves respect.”

The Speaker and four progressives in her caucus — Reps. Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) and Ocasio-Cortez — have openly feuded this week after Pelosi dismissed some of their concerns in a recent interview.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Lest we forget, it’s Pelosi who delivered [a victory for House Democrats in the] midterms,” McCain said. “That’s what I would say to these four women right here. It was her leadership that I once questioned on this show. I no longer do.”

“She’s 79 years old,” McCain continued. “She could be with her grandkids. She could be with her family, and I don’t like her, I don’t agree with her politics, but she’s still serving her country. And that deserves respect from younger generations.”

Co-hosts Whoopie Goldberg and Joy Behar also chastised the freshman Democrats (#Squad). Goldberg said the younger Democrats should respect the work older Democrats have done, while Behar called for unity to battle Trump.

Meanwhile, co-host Sunny Hostin defended the #Squad and Ocasio-Cortez’ claim that Pelosi was targeting representatives of color, listing some of Pelosi’s comments.

    She deserves respect much in the same way as the wicked witch! She brought this on herself and it’s hilarious watching it all come down on her!
