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.”

“But here’s the thing. His job approval ratings are going up, and the media’s job approval ratings are going down,” Behar said. (RELATED: ‘Inside-The-Beltway Porn’ — Meghan McCain Gives The View A Brutal Reality Check On Trump’s Popularity)
