“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.
