Meghan McCain unloaded on her fellow co-hosts during a fiery exchange on ‘The View’ Thursday, slamming ‘democratic socialism’ and demanding NY candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez name “one country” where the failed policies have ever worked.
McCain attempted to educate comedian Joy Behar on the dangers of socialism, citing Venezuela as the latest example of the true effects socialist principles have on a once-healthy economy.
“This makes my head explode, which, by the way, I hope Democrats do run a Democratic Socialist because I think you’ll fail spectacularly and then I’ll look forward to election night when I finally get to tell everyone ‘I told you so’ if you end up running a radical,” McCain said.
“The problem with socialism, in the words of Margaret Thatcher: ‘At a certain point you run out of spending other people’s money.’ Venezuela, one of the richest countries in the world in the 70s — now the average Venezuelan has lost 24 pounds because they’re starving to death,” she added. “Ninety percent of the country is living in poverty. This is what I need from her. Name one country where socialism has ever worked.”
TRUMP JR: ‘Democratic Party of JFK is DEAD’ After Tuesday’s Primary
Donald Trump Jr. slammed the modern Democratic Party Wednesday morning, saying the “party of John F. Kennedy is dead” following Tuesday’s far-left primary victories throughout the country.
The President’s oldest son “congratulated” the liberal candidates heading into the highly-contested 2018 midterms, saying they are now officially the party of “impeachment, open borders, abolishing ICE, and banning the 2nd Amendment.”
“Congrats to the Democrats, who after last night are now officially the Party of impeachment, open borders, abolishing ICE, banning the 2nd Amendment and unbridled socialism. The Democrat Party of John F. Kennedy is dead. RIP,” he tweeted.

The Democratic Party took a hard left turn this week, electing a 28-year old self-avowed socialist and defeating a centrist candidate favored to become Speaker of the House should Democrats regain control this November.
DNC CIVIL WAR: Lieberman Urges Party to ABANDON CORTEZ, Says She’ll ‘HURT AMERICA’
Former Democratic Senator and Vice Presidential candidate Joe Lieberman lashed-out at socialist challenger Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in an op-ed published this week, saying her candidacy will “hurt Congress and hurt America.”
Lieberman penned his piece for the Wall Street Journal, titled “Vote Joe Crowley, for Working Families: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hurts the party, Congress and even America” in which he urged New York Democrats to support Joe Crowley; who was defeated in the primary process by Cortez just weeks ago.
“Ocasio-Cortez’s surprise primary victory over Rep. Joe Crowley seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party. It doesn’t have to,” writes Lieberman.
“Because the policies Ms. Ocasio-Cortez advocates are so far from the mainstream, her election in November would make it harder for Congress to stop fighting and start fixing problems. Thanks to a small percentage of primary votes, all of the people of New York’s 14th Congressional District stand to lose a very effective representative in Washington,” he adds.
Ocasio-Cortez fired back at her critics this week, saying “People who seek substantive change are almost always told some version of: ‘you’re crazy.’”
People who seek substantive change are almost always told some version of:
– “you’re crazy”
– “you don’t know anything”
– “you’re too [old/young/quiet/loud/whatever]”
To detractors, you will never be good enough. To friends, you are always enough.
So just do your thing! 💪🏽💜
