Meghan McCain brought to tears during anti-Semitism debate on 'The View'

The View co-host Meghan McCain was brought to tears during Thursday’s show, while discussing congresswoman Ilhan Omar being accused of using anti-Semitic tropes.McCain began to tear up when she mentioned former United State Senator Joe Lieberman and his wife Hadassah Lieberman as being “like family,” and then ramped up her passion from there.“I take the hate crimes rising in this country incredibly seriously and I think what’s happening in Europe is really scary,” McCain said. “On both sides it should be called out. And just because I don’t technically have Jewish family that are blood-related to me doesn’t mean that I don’t take this seriously and it is very dangerous, very dangerous... what Ilhan Omar is saying is very scary to me.”The nearly ten minute discussion ended with co-host Sunny Hostin calling for action on both sides.“I'm tired of the selective outrage and I hope that we have a joint resolution from the Republicans and from the Democrats,” Hostin said. Some viewers on Twitter supported Meghan and fellow co-host Joy Behar, who was in agreement.Joy & Meghan you both are right on this! — klf84 (@klf60916) March 7, 2019@MeghanMcCain@JoyVBehar Thank you for speaking up for Jewish people & Israel in this terrible, scary age of rising anti-Semitism. I can't tell you how much I appreciate you both.#Antisemitism#IlhanOmar — crittercottab (@crittercottab1) March 7, 2019Others weren’t as convinced by McCain’s emotional moment.Meghan fake tears — Ani (@folfolai) March 7, 2019@MeghanMcCain is a child. She’s using fake tears to win an argument, really. @TheView please get her a debate coach if you insist on keeping her. But I would much rather you fire her. — Katina Smith (@Katina514) March 7, 2019And many enjoyed co-host Hostin’s ending rebuttal to McCain.Go sunny !! — char (@char06591945) March 7, 2019Sunny hit the nail on the head with her #SelectiveOutrage assessment of the situation. — Kathleen Maddox (@kathymaddox1956) March 7, 2019And while the “joint resolution” being called for by Hostin may or may not happen, Behar found a way to use it as the perfect segue to a commercial break.“Speaking of joints, I wish I had one right now.”The View airs weekdays at 11 a.m. on ABC.Check out what Bernie Sanders had to say on The View about seeking campaign advice from Hillary Clinton:Read more from Yahoo Entertainment:Brave blind singer, Make-a-Wish kid bring the feels and tears on ‘American Idol’‘I didn’t do this Stuff!: R.
