Meghan McCain told her co-hosts on “The View” Wednesday to give Melania Trump “some credit” after hosting the French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte Macron.

The comment came during a discussion about how cameras caught President Donald Trump attempting to hold hands with the first lady as the two stood next to the Macrons during the state arrival ceremony on Tuesday at the White House.

Whoopi Goldberg claimed the first lady was feeling “less handsy” and was not interested in holding hands with Trump.


Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin were convinced Melania’s wardrobe, a white suit and large white hat, was like the “wall around China” and reminiscent of the one Beyonce wore in her “Formation” video signaling for Trump to stay away.

“I’m telling you that Melania was in formation,” Hostin shared. “She feels a lot like Beyonce felt when Jay-Z was stepping out. Let’s give it to her. She was so sharp-looking yesterday.”

“To me she’s up there with Jackie Kennedy in terms of her clothing,” Behar explained. “She’s very, very chic.”

“But why the white,” Hostin asked, suggesting it was for the “suffragette” movement.

McCain then reminded her co-hosts of all the work the first lady went through for the Macron’s visit and now all people are talking about are her hands.

“She did a beautiful job. The sad part for me with Melania is she did an incredible job hosting the family during the day when they were planting the tree and then at the dinner and the only thing we are focusing on his her hand,” McCain shared. “It’s like, give this woman some credit. That’s a hard job. Those days are long. I mean I haven’t done that. She had to get up at four in the morning, going into the night.”

“You got to have a little fun with it,” Goldberg responded.

“I know. I just, you know I’ve got a soft spot for Melania because I feel bad for her, “McCain responded.

“We actually all do,” Goldberg answered.
