Why Meghan McCain's Recent Defense Of Tucker Carlson On The View Has Twitter Divided

On a recent episode of "The View," the ladies shared their opinions on a recent confrontation between Fox's Tucker Carlson and a private citizen (via Decider). The viral video features the man accosting Carlson for his stance on the COVID-19 vaccine and calling the "Tucker Carlson Tonight" host "the worst human being known to mankind." Co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin shared that they are not fond of public confrontations but felt that the man was polite and made valid points. However, Meghan McCain had a much different reaction to the confrontation.

The 36-year-old felt that what happened to Carlson could happen to her and her co-hosts. She said, "I know how much people don't like Tucker Carlson. People equally don't like Meghan McCain and Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin and Whoopi and Sara. When you're putting your opinion out there, you're making yourself a target." She also added that this sort of confrontation should not be allowed in the United States. McCain concluded, "Anyone who tries to rationalize it is gross. That man should apologize to Tucker Carlson." 

Upon hearing McCain's perspective on the situation, many critics took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Twitter Users are excited for Meghan McCain's departure from "The View"

After "The View" shared the clip of the co-hosts discussing the Tucker Carlson confrontation on Twitter, many fans took to the comment section to express how excited they are for Meghan McCain's impending departure from the talk show. Twitter user @i_get_disrupted said they "cannot wait until Meghan is gone" to which @sjbouz replied, "4 more days and then it's party time!"

Other people were quick to point out that McCain's reaction to the confrontation was a bit hard to follow. @RetiredCdnnRJB wrote, "Guy was 100% correct. Meanwhile, Megan issued a typically ridiculous reaction, not for being opposed to his confronting Carlson, but for mentioning 'yelling & shooting' in her blathering. The guy didn't even yell or swear. Funny how Carlson tried to hide behind his child too." 

Another Twitter user argued that the commentator always makes the discussions about herself. @Cyn22111 said, "Meghan always goes off on an extreme tangent and makes it about herself."
