Sparks flew on Monday’s “The View” show after co-host Meghan McCain compared the “Squad,” a far-left group of Democratic women in Congress, to controversial right-wing Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga.
McCain responded to co-host Sunny Hostin’s assertion that Greene is “the face of the Republican Party” when she exclaimed, “If she’s the face of the Republicans, then the ‘Squad’ is the face of the Republicans. Democrats. ”

“I can’t stand Marjorie Taylor Greene. I think she’s a crazy person. I’ve said it over and over. But she’s been stripped of her committees. She has absolutely no legislative power in Congress,” he said. McCain said. “Side by side, when Ilhan Omar said the Jewish people hypnotized the world and it’s all about the Benjamins, she’s still on the Foreign Relations Committee, and she’s able to dictate our foreign policy to the United States of America. , so what do you expect? Republicans to do? “
“I think it takes a lot more action against a mad person than I would say Democrats do on the left,” McCain added. “If she’s the face of the Republicans, then the ‘Squad’ is the face of the Democrats. I would love the Democrats to put that same kind of energy on what’s going on on the left, because, frankly, that’s how people They get red pills when they see the blatant bias in the media, because the media don’t want the “Squad” to be bad. They just want [Greene] to look bad. “

After the show resumed, Goldberg asked McCain to complete her point, in which she said anti-Semitism on the left was more insidious and harder to spot than on the right.
Goldberg then attempted to challenge McCain that Omar remained in office, arguing that President Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Had promptly berated her. McCain intervened, saying Omar still had power because she had not been removed from her committees, unlike Greene, who was removed from office earlier in the year following further controversies. .
Later in the segment, McCain again stressed his desire to see the same energy put into action against left-wing Jews, to which co-host Joy Behar responded that she resented McCain’s rhetoric. She said she had been on the show talking about anti-Semitism for 25 “scary” years and McCain didn’t need to tell her what to say. She added that McCain should show her respect due to the time she spent on the show.
