Meghan McCain, co-host of ABC’s “The View,” carried on her family’s #NeverTrump tradition on Monday by essentially blaming President Obama for Donald Trump’s 2016 victory over two-time loser Hillary Clinton.

The hosts were discussing Obama’s jab at President Donald Trump and his administration and, because the majority of them are mindless liberals, were “giddy” about the former president’s classless (and incorrect) comments.

“More than anything, this pandemic has fully, finally torn back the curtain on the idea that so many of the folks in charge know what they’re doing. A lot of them aren’t even pretending to be in charge,” Obama told 2020 graduates in a video address. “If the world’s going to get better, it’s going to be up to you.”

Obama didn’t actually mention Trump by name, but he suggested that the president thinks like “a kid,” and this is “why things are so screwed up.”

“Do what you think is right,” he told the graduates. “Doing what feels good, what’s convenient, what’s easy — that’s how little kids think. Unfortunately, a lot of so-called grown-ups, including some with fancy titles and important jobs, still think that way — which is why things are so screwed up.”

In response, Trump called Obama “grossly incompetent.”

The back-and-forth, and especially Obama’s comments, drew glee from most of The View’s hosts.

“I’m giddy about this,” Joy Behar said Monday. “I’m really looking forward to watching the brilliant law professor take on the quasi-literate reality show host. This is going to be good!” 

Speaking of quasi-literate, readers may recall when Behar the moron outraged nurses all across the country when she mocked a Miss America contestant, Miss Colorado, Kelley Johnson (a nurse) for wearing a “doctor’s stethoscope.” The gaffe was so bad and so outrageous some advertisers dropped the program.

Meanwhile, co-host Sunny Hostin claimed Obama’s video address took her back in time when the former president was “compassionate and empathetic and reassuring and funny, intelligent, honest, curious.”

Then came McCain.

“I don’t have a lot to say about this,” McCain said, correctly noting that Leftist Democrats have elevated Obama to “nothing short of a saint,” adding she “obviously feels different, as most Republicans and conservatives do.”

“The culture war that I believe is real, and is raging in this country, I believe was ushered in with his administration,” she said of the 44th president, “and then exacerbated in the Trump administration.”

Then McCain noted that, in order to prevent Trump from being reelected, “We have to start talking to each other in the middle, and we have to start talking about the faults on both sides because he was not a perfect president. And I don’t think a perfect president would have ushered in the era of Trump.”

In 2016, 63 million Americans disagreed with McCain, whose late father couldn’t defeat Obama in 2008.

That aside, to her point that Obama was certainly no “saint,” we’re learning more by the day just how corrupt the Obama administration was, especially in its attempt to derail Trump’s candidacy and then undermine his presidency.

The latest evidence of 44’s chicanery was pieced together this week by conservative podcaster Dan Bongino, a former Secret Service agent who is very familiar with the workings of the deep state.

During his Friday program, Bongino laid out several pieces of evidence indicating the former president likely had a direct role in setting up Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

“Did Barack Obama order this?” Bongino asked after laying out his case.
