'I Don’t Care': The View's Meghan McCain Exposes Right-Wing Hypocrisy over Trump's Affairs


Evangelical voters who suddenly don't care about "family values" were the focus on discussion on The View this Monday during the Hot Topics roundtable.

The conversation began with a discussion of leaked tape that finds President Donald Trump talking about a payment to a woman with whom he allegedly had an affair.

"Now he is admitting, in my mind, to this affair. The traditional voters out there - my goodness!" Sunny said.

"They only care about abortion rights, these people," co-host Joy Behar said, naming "Evangelicals" in case the audience wasn't clear.

McCain said there's been a "paradigm shift" among the populace, explaining that her father's having a second marriage was once a scandal.

Then she dismissed Trump's affairs as no big deal.

"I don't care as much about his personal life and which Playboy bunny he slept with," McCain said. "It is what it is."

"A man who can't be loyal to his wife can't be loyal to America," Hostin explained.
