The View’s Meghan McCain unloaded on the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner and CNN’s Jim Acosta Tuesday, saying he’s the reason most Americans believe the mainstream media hates the Republican party.
“This is a big gift to Trump supporters,” said McCain when asked to comment on the foul-mouthed hate-fest that took place over the weekend.
“When you hear people like Jim Acosta say Trump supporters’ elevators ‘don’t go to the top floor,’ there’s this idea that the media -especially people in DC- hate the Trump administration, hate Republicans, hate people in the middle of the country,” she added.
“A lot of Republicans I know were very angry about this. I thought it was distasteful. The dinner should be in the spirit of celebration,” said McCain.

.@MeghanMcCain: "The big issues I have — I don't want to know your politics. And a lot of the things you're saying are highly political."
— The View (@TheView) April 18, 2018
“I want to believe you’re not a political person, you’re the head of the FBI,” said McCain. “The big issue I have is I don’t want to know your politics. A lot of the things you’re saying and doing is highly political. I don’t understand what you gain by trying to clear the deck here.”
“I don’t think of it as my politics, I think of it as my values,” Comey fired-back.
“No disrespect, but what your take on the current Republican Party is… I’m more interested in what you know about national security,” said McCain.

FIREWORKS: Meghan McCain DESTROYS 'Boy Scout' Comey on LIVE TV
Meghan McCain absolutely unloaded on disgraced former FBI director James Comey on national television Monday; blasting the bureau boss for interjecting politics in Hillary Clinton’s investigation and writing his recent book to “settle scores.”
“The problem with James Comey is that he can’t decide what he is. Is he this boy scout defending the FBI or is he a media personality?” asked The View co-host.
“We’re trying to get to the bottom of what really happened here and is there any criminal activity with Russia,” she said. “I will say, he’s talking about every decision with Hillary Clinton being made because of politics.”
“He talks about expecting her to win the election. Candidates winning elections should make no difference in your decision as the head of the FBI whatsoever,” added McCain. “This just seems like he’s settling scores.”
