Meghan McCain Insists She Was Not “Unprepared” After Getting Shit For Her Kamala Harris Interview 

June 9, 2020 / Posted by:

Meghan McCain thought she had come up with a “Gotcha!” moment when she tossed a question to former Presidential candidate and current Vice-President contender, Senator Kamala Harris of California. Kamala was on The View yesterday and Meghan asked her about defunding the police. But just like when she talked about the conditions of New York City when she was in fact, not in New York City, she didn’t know what the fuck she was talking about. Though she insists that she did because Meghan McCain is always ready for anything! Unless it’s working with a Republican smarter than her. She’s not ready for that.

Entertainment Tonight says that Meghan had some choice questions for Kamala all about this idea from the “radical” left about defunding police. With protests going around globally, a large focus has been on reforming and restructuring police forces in an effort to stop police brutality and the militarization of police. Defunding police has been all about shifting the over-bloated police funds and putting that money elsewhere like education. Meghan challenged Kamala on that, saying:

“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?”

Kamala answered with:

“I think a big part of this conversation really is about reimagining how we do public safety in America, which I support. 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. Homeownership, into access to capital for small businesses, access to health care regardless of how much money you have.”

Meghan clearly wasn’t happy about Kamala’s answer, so she tried again. But Kamala was ready to shut her down again. And this time Sunny Hostin tagged in because Sunny is always ready to let Meghan know:

McCain argued, “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 subsequently asked, “Are you for defunding the police?”

“How are you defining defunding the police?” Harris asked.

McCain replied, “I assume — and again, this is something that is new to me — I assume it’s removing police.”

“Defunding the police doesn’t mean abolishing the police,” co-host Sunny Hostin jumped in. “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.”

Here’s the clip:

After Meghan was called out for not being prepared, she hopped on Twitter to explain that as a political commentator it’s not her job to explain policy:

Sorry Meghan, even though she’s in the comfort of her own home and isn’t in the same room as her co-hosts she’s still getting dunked on left and right. I wonder when Whoopi Goldberg is going to tell her to shut up or lock her out of the Zoom meeting.
