Trust us, we never watch “The View” — we just don’t have the stomach for it — but Mediate was on the case Tuesday, featuring an exchange in which the hosts argued about racism in the Republican Party.

Abby Huntsman asked [Sunny] Hostin if the reported 42 percent of Americans who support the wall are racist.
“I don’t know,” Hostin said.
McCain then jumped in.
“I think this is the problem with identity politics in the country,” McCain said. She added, “When you broad-stroke everyone. All black people think one thing. All Hispanics think one thing. All Republicans think one thing. That’s how we got ourselves into this mess.”
McCain added, “Please don’t paint me, just because I’m for border security, that I somehow am racist in some way or another — ’cause I don’t think that’s fair.”
Then, she turned to Hostin and asked, “Do you think 42 percent of Americans are racist?!”
CNN’s Brian Stelter thought it would take way longer than one hour to completely cover the topic of the GOP and racism.
"The View" would need way more than an hour to finish this conversation… https://t.co/1Bh1W5gOLi

That tweet didn’t slip past McCain, who fired back at CNN’s non-coverage of racism within the Women’s March:
Or sometimes we only need one segment on a subject to expose real anti-semitism when your network spent an entire year on a documentary on the subject and never touched it…. https://t.co/2R7ssXFX5l

You mean the documentary “Women Who March: The Movement,” in which CNN followed the national organizers of the Women’s March over the course of a year documenting how a moment became a movement? The one that overlooked the anti-Semitism inherent in the group’s leadership from the very first meeting?
To be fair, Jake Tapper seemed to be the lone voice at CNN — heck, the whole mainstream media — concerned about Tamika Mallory’s great friendship with and admiration of Louis Farrakhan.

Thank you and well said.

Antisemetism is always such a nuanced and complicated topic when it comes from the Left.

I like this Meghan I’ve been seeing. Nice to see you come into your own.

What a great comeback! Thank you for moral clarity in this weird political climate of obfuscation and gaslighting.

Your response seems way more negative than his tweet would seem to warrant.

Nah, it’s cnn. They deserve it.

Somebody go change Brian Stelter's wiki page to reflect that he was murdered by Meghan McCain today.

RUH-ROH! Guess who else just dropped the Women’s March as a ‘partner’ over anti-Semitism concerns (this is YUGE) https://t.co/rbo7dgNNuf
