Meghan McCain, the daughter of gravely ill war hero John McCain, demonstrated her father’s patriotic grit on Friday. She did so by standing up to her co-hosts on the “View” along with their Kool-Aid drinking audience, tweeting out; “I never go on TV and do or say anything because it’s easy – I say it because it’s what I believe in.”
McCain continued; “I ardently believe in standing for our flag, and I am not scared of an audience in front of me or behind the camera. I would be scared if I were a phony, betraying my values.”
The outspoken conservative co-host although outnumbered by the progressive jackals on the show, is no wallflower when it comes to defending traditional American values.
The dust-up occurred in response to the announcement that the NFL had instituted a new league policy regarding our National Anthem and players taking a knee. The new league rules mandates players on the field must stand for the National Anthem, and those who will not must stay in the locker-room until the salute to “Old Glory” is over.
The discussion between the co-hosts began cordial enough until the mention of President Trump supporting the new league rule and McCain chiming in saying she would “never be OK” with someone disrespecting the American flag.
McCain continued, “I disagree with everyone on this table, I would never be okay with somebody not saluting the flag. By the way, 72% of Americans, according to Reuters, said that they thought [Colin] Kaepernick’s behavior was unpatriotic.”
This set off the jackals at the table that were waiting to pounce on McCain.
Co-host Sunny Hostin immediately played the race card suggesting that a majority of African-Americans called Kaepernick a patriot, which lit up the obviously programmed audience into loud applause, as McCain attempted to explain her position.
“Can I just finish what I’m saying,” McCain said. “I’m still talking!” I’m still talking, I’m still speaking.”
Hours earlier Fox News host Brian Kilmeade in an exclusive interview with President Trump discussed the breaking news regarding the new NFL policy, in which the President thought it was the right thing to do, adding that players who disrespect the National Anthem “maybe shouldn’t be in this country.”
The President continued; “I don’t think people should be staying in the locker rooms, but still I think it’s good. You have to stand proudly for the National Anthem. You shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there.”
Roger Goodell acknowledged in a statement that the policy was approved “in concert with the NFL’s ongoing commitment to local communities and our country.”
The guidelines read: “the 32 member clubs of the National Football League have reaffirmed their strong commitment to work alongside our players to strengthen our communities and advance social justice.”
McCain has been here before defending her conservative values on the “View.” The hostility is expected from her co-hosts and many within the audience.
Just recently McCain found herself once again in a heated debate defending her Second Amendment rights after the latest school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas
Misinformed Joy Behar once again used the progressive playbook attacking an inanimate object “the gun” while ignoring the underline culprit “mental illness,” and reverencing singer Kelly Clarkson’s comment regarding gun control at the Billboard Awards show Sunday night.
“We’ve had this conversation before and we’re always talking about gun control. We said before, OK, AR-15s, all semi-assault rifles, if they are banned, this won’t happen. That’s obviously not accurate in this case,” McCain chimed in. “He had a pipe bomb, a molotov cocktail and a carbon dioxide device, which, by the way, are things you can make in your house.”
He is also underage, used a shotgun and a .38 revolver, which he stole, all of which is already illegal.
