Another heated argument took place on Wednesday’s episode of “The View” on ABC. It all started with a discussion on a new dating app that is designed specifically for Trump supporters.
At first, Abby Huntsman said that she disagreed with the app, stating that people should interact with people outside of their own worldview. “You want to live in a world where you only watch Fox, only watch MSNBC, only surround yourself with people who think the same as you do,” said Huntsman. “That’s a dangerous thing.”
Sunny Hostin then argued that people with differences in certain fundamental values would make it difficult for them to get along. “We’re not talking about Republicans and Democrats,” agreed Joy Behar. “We’re talking about Donald Trump and people who believe what he believes.”
“They may not be bad people,” she continued, “But they’re not offended by calling a woman ‘Horseface.’”
Huntsman then argued that not all Trump supporters agree with everything he says and does, but Hostin had none of it. “Are you still complicit in voting for him?” she asked.
“Are you still complicit in voting for Bill Clinton?” Huntsman shot back.
Behar then argued that Clinton didn’t do much wrong compared to Trump, who is “training kids to disrespect women, call them names, to be racist, to be bullies–”
It was then that Meghan McCain had had enough.
“I’m sorry, we lived through a Civil War in this country. We have lived through hard times,” said McCain. “Listen to me, this is not going to break us, OK? And I’m sick of this. I’m sick of this onus that America is going to be broken and we’re ruined forever because of Trump. That’s not who we are. We survive.”

Do you agree with what McCain had to say?
Earlier this week, Joy Behar, Abby Huntsman, and Meghan McCain all tore into Hillary Clinton for her defense of sexual misconduct allegations against her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
On an interview with CBS on Sunday, Hillary was asked if she thinks that Bill should have resigned following his scandal with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
“Absolutely not,” replied Hillary, stating that Lewinsky was an adult at the time. She then dodged the following question on whether it was an abuse of power by asking why no one was investigating allegations against current President Donald Trump.
The live audience on “The View” applauded Hillary’s answer, but co-host Joy Behar did not appreciate her answer. “What she just did is exactly what Republicans do, they changed the subject,” said Behar. “And that’s why we never get anywhere in the discourse.”
“You know you have a bad argument when your immediate response is ‘well, they were worse,'” co-host Abby Huntsman said.
“This highlights to me I think why some people struggled to vote for her, because you can’t have it both ways in her position,” Huntsman continued. “You can’t put yourself on a pedestal and be a leader for the feminist movement, and at the same time refuse to acknowledge the reality that you’ve lived with for all these years and stand by your husband. I don’t think she can have it both ways and she continues to try and do this.”
Behar then called Hillary “a victim of [Bill’s] stupidity,” and when the #MeToo movement was brought up, Behar said that Bill is “guilty.”
Co-host Meghan McCain then said that the Democrats should distance themselves as much as possible from the Clintons, especially now that the midterm elections are so close.
The fourth member of the panel, Sunny Hostin, was the only one to defend Hillary’s response, saying that Lewinsky indeed was an adult at the time of her consensual relationship with the former president.
