Meghan McCain gave CNN’s Jake Tapper a friendly jab on The View Wednesday, telling him that Trump lets him off easy in his criticism of the media.
“I think that [Trump] specifically goes after CNN. He has called you a flunky,” Joy Behar said.
“Yes, yes. That’s not so bad,” Tapper said.
“You’re kind of getting off easy,” McCain responded.
“I thought — honestly I thought he could have brought it more than that. I was unimpressed,” Tapper joked.
This exchange was in reference to a tweet from President Trump calling Tapper a “flunky.”
