“The View” co-host Meghan McCain criticized former Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton for the comments she made in India about the election and specifically female Republican voters.
During the India Today Conclave, Clinton said President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again” aimed at swaying voters who didn’t like “black people getting rights” and “women getting jobs.”
She added that white men don’t overwhelmingly vote Democratic and implied that married white women who vote Republican don’t make up their own minds as to how to vote.
n response, McCain argued that Clinton ran “one of the worst campaigns ever” with a ground game that was lacking in key states such as Wisconsin and North Carolina.
She added that the election was heavily centered around poverty, the economy, and an anti-establishment sentiment and Clinton needs to stop making it about “virtue signaling and race.”
The Democratic Party’s missed messaging during the 2016 election has been heavily cited as a reason for the loss and McCain noted that belittling the minds of female voters could be a problem for the midterms. She declared:
“If your messaging is that you want to go back in time, that women can’t think for themselves, that our husbands, and our bosses, and our sons tell us what to do, that’s quite the message going forward into midterms and [the] general election.”
Co-host Sunny Hostin cited a study that backed up Clinton’s claim that white men usually vote Republican, as do their wives, but she also had a question of her own.
McCain went on to declare, “The Clintons are a virus in the Democratic Party” and encouraged the former Democratic nominee to “move on,” which was a point that garnered support from co-host Joy Behar.
