Meghan McCain Responds to Allegations That She Was 'Unprepared' for Kamala Harris 'The View' Interview

Meghan McCain is accused of being unprepared for her interview with Senator Kamala Harris on Monday’s episode of The View.

The conversation that took place was about defunding the police amid the George Floyd protests taking place across the country.

“I just want to know from you, do you support defunding and removing American police from communities and if not, why do you think there’s such a hard time being differentiated right now between defunding and reforming?” Meghan asked the Senator.

“I think a big part of this conversation really is about reimagining how we do public safety in America, which I support,” the Senator responded. “We have confused the idea that to achieve safety you put more cops on the street instead of understanding to achieve safe and healthy communities, you put more resources into the public education system, affordable housing, home ownership, into access to capital for small businesses, access to health care regardless of how much money you have.”

“I don’t think there’s any rational American right now that doesn’t think we need to take a cold, hard look at reforming our police.” McCain then asked, “Are you for defunding the police?”

“How are you defining defunding the police?” the Senator responded.

“Well, I’m not for anything remotely for that but I assume — and again, this is something that is new to me — I assume it’s removing police,” McCain added.

The Senator then said that she wanted to allocate much of those police funds to education, mental health, job training, and others.

“Defunding the police doesn’t mean abolishing the police,” Sunny Hostin, another The View co-host, added. “It means taking some of those funds that are typically 1/3 of a budget of a city and giving some of those funds to services like mental health, education and mental health resources.”

After this interview, The View fans took to social media to call Meghan McCain unprepared.

Meghan, we live in the same building, and I just walked outside. It’s fine,” she said.

“I don’t need to co-host with her again, and it’s unfortunate, because I’ve been a huge fan for a long time…anybody who is screwing around with this virus and putting out misinformation, I don’t really have a lot of time for right now.”

“Starting immediately, I’ll be joining the millions of Americans who are self-isolating as a precaution to prevent the spread of COVID-19. As a result, I will be appearing on The View from home via satellite. I am fortunate that my employer, ABC, has allowed me and my co-hosts to work remotely. I am indebted to our producers and crew. I also want to acknowledge the heroes – the doctors, nurses, grocery and pharmacy workers, journalists, police officers, fireman and military – who are on the front lines of this fight. Please stay safe. Wash your hands and avoid public gatherings and I will continue to see you each morning on The View.”
