Meghan McCain was in the middle of an emotional tribute to her former Fox News colleague Charles Krauthammer — who announced late last week that he was dying of cancer — when fellow “The View” cohost Joy Behar interrupted with an attack on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
During Wednesday morning’s show, McCain spoke fondly of Krauthammer, saying, “His voice has been so important because he’s always so fair to Trump supporters and to the never-Trumpers and to everything in between. He was always measured, he was never overly emotional and he really understands the pulse of conservatism. I’m sorry. I feel like God’s giving everybody I love in politics cancer, and I just am going to miss him a lot.” (RELATED: Meghan McCain: The Summit Was A Good Idea But Trump Was Too Buddy-Buddy With Kim)
McCain was praising Krauthammer’s unwavering ability to call both sides, saying that it was hard to be the one in the middle fighting for rational conservatism, when Behar jumped in.
“McConnell is radio silence on all of this. The guy attacks Canada and embraces Russia, and nothing from Mitch McConnell. You’re a disgrace. You’re a disgrace, Mitch McConnell, and the rest of them keeping silent.”
Whoopi Goldberg quickly reined things in, changing the subject to discuss the recent heart attack and recovery of White House Chief Economic Advisor Larry Kudlow. She said simply, “We wish him well.”
