We are all here to witness the war between Meghan McCain and her former employer “The View” after a segment aired on Thursday that defended Joe and Hunter Biden.
Ana Navarro, co-host of the show and a pseudo-conservative, gushed over the alleged closeness between Joe Biden and Hunter. She used a media talking point that is often invoked, saying in so many words how Joe Biden’s only sin is to love his son Hunter who, this week, defied a Congressional Subpoena and flaunted the fact just steps away from the Capitol Building.
Navarro declared, “Joe Biden is guilty of being Hunter Biden’s father and being Hunter Biden’s loving, good, supportive, father.” The liberally biased crowd clapped in agreement.
Navarro, amid her attempt to defend Hunter Biden, claimed that, while Hunter Biden is indeed guilty of influence-peddling, Washington D.C. as a whole, was also guilty. Navarro, again without any evidence, claimed that “people sitting at this table” were also involved in influence peddling.
“Look, did Hunter Biden influence peddle on his last name? Yes, he did,” Navarro declared. “So did half of Washington. People sitting at this table did it! Did Hunter Biden cheat on his taxes? Yes, he did!”
When Navarro was pressed by her cohosts to clarify who she meant, she said that it was not anyone “currently”, which caused Sunny Hostin, a woke cohost, to burst into laughter.

Meghan McCain, an ex-co-host of View, took Navarro’s comments as a reference to her and told the show she was considering taking legal action.
I can’t believe that my former colleagues at @TheView@ABC still bring me up to date and defame me almost every week. I’ve moved on.
I’ve never been charged with a crime and I am a patriotic American. I would and have never “influence peddled” in any part of my life, much less with foreign enemies. Hunter Biden is not the only politician’s child.
All allegations are ridiculous, defamatory, and slanderous.
I will consult my lawyers about what was said against me this morning on The View.

According to my memory, Abby Huntsman’s father, former Utah Governor and failed 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman Jr., was the only co-host on “The View” with a prominent political father.
Some Twitter users asked McCain to “bury” them, while Fox News senior weather forecaster Janice Dean, who is Meghan McCain’s friend, said that she looked forward to Meghan McCain taking legal action. Long overdue.”
I don’t even know if this is going to happen.
