When “The View” co-host Sara Haines complained on Monday that “the day and age of a moral leader left possibly with President Obama,” Meghan McCain clapped back immediately.
“What era was that?” McCain asked, “when JFK was sleeping with Marilyn Monroe?”
During a discussion about Michael Cohen’s recorded conversation with President Trump, Meghan McCain challenged the narrative by saying that she was far more concerned with current foreign policy concerns than with the president’s personal life.
“Can I admit something, and maybe you will pass harsh judgment on me? I don’t care as much about his personal life and which Playboy bunny he slept with. That’s between him and Melania. I care about what’s going on with Iran. I care about all this foreign policy stuff. That’s what scares me …
I’m more scared of North Korea than the president’s personal life.”
Co-host Sunny Hostin then made the claim that if Trump can’t be faithful to his wife, he can’t be faithful to the American people.
Sara Haines jumped in, saying that President Obama was the last president who could really be held up as a good example. She explained, “I think the day and age of a moral leader left, possibly, with President Obama, so I feel like those values … there used to be a time we waved our president in front of young kids and said, ‘You can be this.’ I think that time might have ended, sadly.”
McCain fired back immediately, asking, “What era was that? When JFK was sleeping with Marilyn Monroe? They all had liaisons.”
