Meghan McCain Defends Police – Says Anti-Cop Rhetoric ‘Equally Dangerous’ As Capitol Rioters

On Wednesday’s episode of “The View,” conservative cohost Meghan McCain took a stand for American police officers, and slammed Capitol rioters for trying to defund them.

During a segment talking about the Capitol riots that occurred back in January, cohost Whoopi Goldberg asked McCain for her thoughts.

“These cops were protecting Republican and Democratic official,” Goldberg said. “Why isn’t this a galvanizing moment for everyone? Is it really about just winning, or have we lost something?”

McCain Sounds Off

“I mean, I agree with what you’re asking Whoopi — that it’s confusing why this is being politicized,” McCain replied. “Again, it’s an extremely dark day in American history. Definitely one of our darkest days ever. It was horrific to watch, I can’t even fathom what it would’ve been like to be a law enforcement officer defending the capitol in that time.”

However, from there McCain shifted to calling out the anti-police rhetoric from the left, throwing her support behind the Blue Lives Matter movement.

“I’m equally grossed out by anyone trying to mock the trauma of a law enforcement officer,” McCain said, before referring to something her cohost Sara Haines had previously said about Republicans. “You’re right, Sara: ‘blue lives matter’ is something that many Republicans have said, and that I certainly have said and believe.”

McCain Doubles Down

Not stopping there, McCain gave her two cents on government officials who are politicizing this moment, zeroing in on leftists for their hypocrisy.

“Alternatively, I don’t like people on the left politicizing these particular law enforcement officers,” McCain said. I can remember just a few mere months ago that all law enforcement were irredeemable and needed different kind of training and should be defunded.”

McCain then said that police “don’t feel respected,” which is why various cities are struggling to recruit officers.

“I would hope that politics on both sides would be removed from this, and we could take this as a teachable moment about just how valuable police officers and law enforcement are,” McCain said. “And that the narrative and the rhetoric from the past year has been equally dangerous.”

McCain Concludes Her Rant

McCain concluded her rant by saying that she believes that people “should have a lot more respect for police officers.”

“I just want to send my support to these police officers,” McCain concluded. “Because these people on Capitol Hill and in the rest of the country are paid very little and they are called to do the hardest jobs and put their life on the line every single morning — which is nothing that no pundit in no studio on any network ever is called to do.”
