Meghan McCain's attempts to double down on her criticism of impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump are not convincing The View fans who just watched her get told to "stop talking" by Whoopi Goldberg after a heated exchange on Monday's show. McCain continued to tweet her point as soon as the moment began making the rounds on Twitter, saying she has a "responsibility" to give a conservative viewpoint "even if it angers people."
Dems and Rs alike need to confront the ugly truth: both parties are failing to be impartial jurors. I won’t be quiet, even if the reality reflects poorly on the entire political establishment. I have a responsibility to speak for the 50% that feels media doesn’t represent them.— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) December 16, 2019
Pointing out things that are true is part of my job even if it angers people and even if it’s politically inconvenient. https://t.co/HbHRQdATJ3— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) December 16, 2019
Pretending half the country doesn't exist won't make them disappear. The culture war is real, and Americans who aren't part of the overwhelmingly anti-conservative media deserve to have their views represented.— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) December 16, 2019
Her followers were quick to reveal it was not what she was saying, but how she was presenting her argument that made people so angry.
"I agree, but not HOW you present them - in an all knowing condescending, self righteous attitude," one viewer responded. "Your message is lost in HOW you present it."
"Meghan no one has an issue with you giving the conservative perspective," another chimed in. "It's the WAY you do it. You should really re-evaluate the way you talk to your co-hosts in the new year."
Goldberg appeared to take issue with that as well, only clapping back after McCain interrupted her attempt to go to commercial after a disagreement with Sunny Hostin over the impeachment proceedings.
McCain asked, "Do you want to hear a conservative perspective on the show ever?"
"Girl, please stop talking," Goldberg fired back. "Please stop talking right now."
"No problem. I won't talk for the rest of the show," McCain responded, to which Goldberg replied,"I'm okay with that, if you're going to behave like this."
"I'm not behaving like anything," McCain shot back. "I'm trying to show conservative perspective."
Goldberg then called her out for talking over panelists, cutting away after, "What you're doing is ... we're not doing anything, how bout this, we'll be right back!"
