‘The View’ Derails As Meghan McCain And Joy Behar Go At It Over Biden Fist Bump – ‘The Left Is Just As Bad’

The ABC talk show “The View” went off the rails once again on Friday as hosts Meghan McCain and Joy Behar argued over Rep. Liz Cheny (R-WY) fist bumping President Joe Biden before his State of the Union speech on Wednesday night.

“Well don’t tell people to go up and be violent towards Republicans in restaurants and people in the Trump administration like Congresswoman Maxine Waters did,” McCain said. “So like, let’s call a spade a spade here. The left is just as bad. Please!”
