Here’s a gong from The View co-host Meghan McCain.
During a conversation Friday on the popular overwhelmingly-left-wing daytime show, the fiery chick — who called Joy Behar a “b*tch” on the air June 20th — said White House hopeful Eric Swalwell needs to “take a seat.”
Meghan also affirmed he’s “an asterisk” in the scope of the election.
The ladies were discussing Eric’s comment Thursday that Joe Biden should “pass the torch to a new generation of Americans.”
Meghan didn’t like that slam.
The talkative daughter of Sen. John McCain is like The Hulk — don’t make her angry; you wouldn’t like her when she’s angry.
Here’s Eric’s remark:
“I was six years old when a presidential candidate came to the California Democratic convention and said, ‘It’s time to pass the torch to a new generation of Americans.’ That candidate was then-Senator Joe Biden. Joe Biden was right when he said it was time to pass the torch to a new generation of Americans 32 years ago. He’s still right today.”
Seems kinda mean.
“So, it’s almost like calling him, so Gramps wants to run for president. I thought it was, like, really, you little whippersnapper? Shut up. You know? I don’t know. That wasn’t nice. That was an ageist comment. And pushing your way through because you’re young. Come on.”
Behar scores a gold star with me!
Ana Navarro Amen’d, reducing the 38-year-old California representative to a symbol. But not the cool kind like Prince used:
“It was a guy who is an asterisk in the polls, Swalwell trying to make a name for himself by doing something that was inflammatory, and it was very provoking.”
Then the show’s David Banner got in the mix. She pointed with swagger and attitude during the “asterisk” part. It was easy to imagine the “-terisk” part not being there:
“Did it change my opinion of him? No, but what I will say is Eric Swalwell with this ageist crap? I hate it. I work with women of all ages. I want experience and people who know how Washington works and who have served and had a life and experiences they can bring that to the White House, whoever that is. I thought Pete Buttigieg looked real young last night and real green, and Eric Swalwell, take a seat. As [Ana] said, you’re an asterisk on the end. Okay??”
I’d guess that many feel the same. The debate audience didn’t seem to appreciateEric’s stunning lack of respect for his elder.
Bill Maher’s in Meghan’s camp. Here’s what he thought of Mr. Get-Off-the-Stage-Old-Man:
“Eric Swalwell. I like him. But, you know, too young. … Get the **** out.”
2020’s gonna be interesting.
