The View's Meghan McCain Melts Down After Ana Navarro Blasts Her for Claiming CNN Is Democratic Mouthpiece

During the season finale of The View, Meghan McCain was on-edge from the start of the show as conservative never-Trump commentator Ana Navarro was serving as a co-host.


McCain defended the Trump administration against alleged liberal media bias by saying it's "real and really exists" before whining that Republicans don't receive "fair and balanced" coverage like "Democrats do."

Guest co-host Michael Avenatti corrected her by highlighting that Republicans have an entire TV network in Fox News.

"So do Democrats: CNN," McCain shot back.

"That is not true," co-host Joy Behar replied before Navarro jumped into the conversation.

"CNN tries to be very balanced," she said. "CNN has commentators on like me, and every time I'm on I've got somebody that is defending Trump."

Then she went in on McCain's hypocrisy.

"MSNBC, where you worked once," Navarro began before McCain cut her off to say it was a "very, very long time ago."

"But it's part of your history," Navarro replied.

"Don't come for me!" an angry McCain nearly shouted before regaining her composure and trying to smooth it over by making a ridiculous suggestion that they shouldn't argue because it's the season finale.

Navarro continued to hold McCain's feet to the fire by pointing out that her previous employer had an obvious liberal bias at the time.

"Why are you relitigating my career right now?!" McCain yelled before exasperated co-host Sunny Hostin asked for "the bell."
