Are they really fighting over this?
During an airing of “The View,” hosts Meghan McCain and Whoopi Goldberg started attacked each other after Goldberg “challenged a claim McCain made about Women’s March co-founders Tamika Mallory and Bob Bland.”
McCain had said, “When you’re talking about women’s empowerment, as a conservative woman there’s always a level of skepticism because we’re never invited into circles, traditionally. In he Women’s March we were literally not invited to join and told to stay home if you were pro-life. It ended up being the leaders of the Women’s March had strong ties to Farrakhan, and a lot of anti-Semitic and in my opinion extremely problematic …”
Goldberg interrupted and said, “Not both of the women. I just wanted to say one of the women had strong ties, not both of them, but go ahead.”
McCain fired back, “You can watch the tape of me interviewing them on the show and make your own decision.”
Goldberg then said, “I was there.” Which prompted McCain to immediately say, “You were not.”
The two continue talking over one another until McCain states, “I had a problem with the Women’s March. Other people don’t. This is why this topic is ridiculous. Conservative women don’t have voices in places like this, and it’s fine.”
Goldberg ends the conversation saying, “Okay. Here’s my take for conservative women. If you want to join and put your picture up as well, there’s nothing stopping anybody. This is for all women. If it’s not your thing, then it’s not your thing.”
