The View's Whoopi Goldberg Schools Meghan McCain for Shrugging Off Yet Another Trump Lie

On Tuesday's episode of 'The View,' co-host Meghan McCain offered a strange defense of President Donald Trump after the release of a tape in which he discusses a payout to a mistress with then-lawyer Michael Cohen.


“CNN and other outlets aren’t even transcribing this because it’s ambiguous and unclear,” McCain said. “I will say, last night I was on my Instagram Live because I needed somebody to talk to when you bitches aren’t around for this, and I was, like, I don’t know what I just heard."

McCain's comments got particularly ridiculous when she suggested important news doesn't break in the afternoon.

“I don’t mean disrespect to CNN, but it probably would have been released on, like, ABC News in the morning if it was this breaking of a story, if this was the smoking gun, silver bullet that was going to take Trump out,” she said.

Whoopi Goldberg jumped in to state the obvious facts.

“We now know on tape, that’s his voice, that he lied,” she responded to McCain's strange defense.

Goldberg said the "cumulative" effect is that "a mountain of poo" falls on the president as proof of his lies mount.
