The ladies on ABC’s “The View” were discussing Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen abrupt resignation on Sunday amid a crisis on the southern border, where Border Patrol has been overwhelmed by illegal immigrants flooding into the country.
A discussion that saw co-host Meghan McCain dump on Fox News, who she claimed was “dictating policy” in the Trump administration.
Seizing on the opportunity to undermine President Trump, who promised on Friday that “we’re going in a tougher direction,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg accredited White House adviser Stephen Miller with Nielsen’s departure — according to CBS News, he “engineered and directed” a massive DHS overhaul.
Co-host Joy Behar babbled about how President Trump wants to “starve and destroy” migrants from Central America while talking about Nielson’s replacement, before the discussion moved on to how to get good people in the administration and how Neilsen is now the face of separating migrant families at the border — even though it was done under President Obama and these same liberals could not have cared less.
Co-host Sunny Hostin would add how illegal immigrants by the tens of thousands swarming our borders monthly basis isn’t a real threat to national security because white supremacists exist … by the dozens.
When McCain got her turn, she earned her keep as the tolerated conservative at the table when she pointed out that two weeks ago, Fox Business Network’s Lou Dobbs suggested that in face of the failings at the border, that Nielson should be fired.
“If people like Lou Dobbs and Laura Ingraham are dictating policy and who has a job in the White House and who doesn’t, at this point why don’t you make Lou Dobbs the person in charge of this since this is the person it seems you’re listening to?” said McCain.
This narrative was common with the liberal media on Monday, because Trump took an action Dobbs pontificated about two weeks ago.
It was during a March 29 show that Dobbs called on Trump to fire Nielsen for what he said was “ineffectual leadership.”
“She’s absolutely overwhelmed. She is paralyzed, her department is paralyzed,” he said then.
McCain and Behar clashed last week with McCain saying she missed Whoopi being the moderator with Behar controlling the table, and her moderating talents were put to a test early as McCain and Behar inched ever so close to another blow — the over-under on this relationship lasting has to be in the weeks, if not days.
“Okay, here’s the deal,” Whoopi interjected. “Here’s what’s not going to happen today, we’re not going to do this.”
She put her foot down to say everyone will get their chance to express themselves, and that “we don’t need to comment if we don’t like what we’re hearing.”
Whoopi then told Behar to finish what she was saying and she was fuming so bad she had forgotten what she was talking about!
