Meghan McCain responded to the cancellation of Roseanne Barr’s show by taking a swipe at President Donald Trump on ABC’s “The View” Wednesday. She claimed that ABC held employees to a higher standard than the White House, saying, “It’s refreshing to see someone take a stand and say, ‘No! Not at ABC, not at this company, this is not acceptable rhetoric.”
Saying that Barr’s comments were “blatantly, patently, the definition of racism,” McCain then appeared to make a thinly-veiled reference to her own recent spat with the White House.
“I would say that, for me, that I have been so disheartened by what’s acceptable in the world right now, what’s acceptable in the White House … And it’s interesting that ABC holds a higher standard to their employees than, apparently, the White House does.”
Just two weeks earlier, McCain had lashed out at White House aide Kelly Sadler for an offensive “joke” about her father’s cancer battle, saying, “I don’t understand what kind of environment you’re working in when that would be acceptable and you can come to work the next day and still have a job.”
