According to Meghan McCain, one of the co-hosts of the ABC show “The View,” Donald Trump Jr. is “beloved” and she doesn’t understand why the Senate Intelligence Committee would subpoena him for additional testimony.
McCain said the subpoena from the Senate committee surprised her:
“I don’t understand this. He did eight to nine hours of testimony in front of Senate Intel already and 27 hours in committees total — that’s a lot of testifying. I want to know if he’s going to be out in front of Congress, if he’s going to be hauled out in front of Congress and we’re going to watch it live.
“You have to think about how insulated he is. He pretty much only does interviews with people who are like-minded, people on Fox. He’s in circles where he’s, like, a beloved figure. It will be interesting to see someone who is insulated as a beloved figure be forced to testify.”
Beloved? Don Jr. has been referred to as #TraitorTot on Twitter and is routinely mocked by comedians.
McCain’s co-host, Sunny Hostin, did an instant fact check, asking:
“Is he beloved?
“I’m just. I’m, like — it’s Donald Trump Jr.”
Joy Behar then remarked she would love to see all of the Trump children forced to testify before Congress but doubted that would ever happen.
But McCain continued to support Junior:
“He’s actually a really great guy. He’s known for being really bipartisan.”
What?! Donald Trump Jr. is one of the most partisan people on the planet! He has never tried to reach across the aisle on anything.
Finally, Whoopi Goldberg noted that the subpoena against Don Jr. was a very big deal and referenced Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s refusal to turn over Trump’s tax returns in compliance with a law that’s been on the books since 1924.
McCain laughed and responded:
“Everybody’s going to jail. I’m not going to jail, I didn’t take a Trump Tower meeting.”
No you didn’t, Meghan. But you know who did? The “beloved” Donald Trump Jr.
