Meghan McCain & Joy Behar Get in a Heated Battle on 'The View' Over Matt Gaetz Allegations

Joy Behar and Meghan McCain are butting heads again.

The View co-hosts battled in out while discussing Rep. Matt Gaetz, who is reportedly under federal investigation for allegations of sex trafficking.

During the discussion, Whoopi Goldberg asked Meghan why she felt the Republican Party was staying by the representative’s side amid allegations.

“Well, because the only sin that you commit in the Republican party these days is if you say that Biden won the election — everything else is fine,” Joy sarcastically said.

“Well, first of all, I have family members and good friends who all work on Capitol Hill in Republican politics and trust me: the Republican Party and people on Capitol Hill are embarrassed by this. So, I think I have a lot better sourcing on that than you do, Joy, no offense,” Meghan said.

“It’s super disgusting. He should go to jail. It’s super embarrassing…he’s a deeply unserious person. He should be removed from his committees. There’s some people on the left that I think should be removed from their committees for some of the things that they’ve said about Israel and some of the things that they’ve said — like, I get it, if we want to talk about removing committees, we can do this all day long. But, Matt Gaetz is a pervert who should go to jail. Okay. The end.”

Later on, Joy asked: “My question is: if it’s not the Republican Party, shall I call it the QAnon party? What shall I call your party now, who defends people like Matt Gaetz and goes against Liz Cheney? What are we supposed to call it? Explain this to me.”

“I think you can call it whatever you want because your influence in the Republican Party is almost zero and again, as I have said on this show, it is for us to figure out amongst ourselves,” Meghan hit back.

“What Republican is like, ‘Hmm, Joy Behar doesn’t like my party, I better stop voting for them now’?”

“You said people on Capitol Hill are supporting him. I’m telling you, from people that I know personally, they are embarrassed. This is embarrassing for the Republican Party,” Meghan went on to say.

Meghan McCain issued an apology recently regarding aiding in racist rhetoric.
