Meghan McCain Gives Audience A Reality Check After They Foolishly Laugh At VP Pence
Meghan McCain is supposed to give a conservative perspective on "The View," but it feels like she rarely does her job. But at least she was the voice of reason when it comes to the Corona Virus. Host Sonny Hostin decided that in the wake of this widespread virus she would joke about how Trump is supposedly trying to distance himself from any responsibility. McCain was not having it and made sure to let Hostin and anyone that agrees know just how wrong it is to joke about this epidemic.
"I think Trump needed someone in that position just in case things go badly," co-host Sunny Hostin said. Co-host Joy Behar added that Hostin was describing a "fall guy."
Some people in the audience seemed to applaud Hostin's comments, prompting McCain to scowl in response.
"I don't know why anyone would clap about that because if crap goes wrong, it's going to be bad for all of us -- so clapping, because this is bad ... I do not like the politicizing of this," she said, gesturing behind her toward where the clapping seemed to come from."

Hostin is not alone in thinking this way Jimmy Kimmel also bashed Pence for his role in handling the Corona Virus.
"Why is Mike Pence in charge?" Kimmel asked. "What is his plan to stop the virus? Abstinence? I think Trump might be trying to kill him. I really do."
Kimmel also crudely suggested that Pence was a sycophant to Trump. "I hope the virus isn't spread by kissing ass, because if it is, they've got the wrong guy," Kimmel quipped.
Pence has come under fire for his comments about abstinence and the way he handled an HIV outbreak while governor of Indiana. In 2002, Pence reportedly told CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer that it was "sad" for then-Secretary of State Colin Powell to push condom use."
So far we have the virus under control here in the United States with very few cases. We are quarantining anyone infected and preventing flights from China. But as widespread as the virus is, we have to rely on other countries to do their part in preventing infected people from traveling here. So these Liberals needs to cut the B.S., we should all be rooting for Trump and Pence as this virus could kill thousands of Americans if it were to get out of hand.
