With the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the President is on track to nominate someone this week and Republicans in the Senate have indicated they are ready to hold a vote.
Meghan McCain, who often serves as the more conservative voice on ABC’s ‘The View’ praised RBG for the things she did to create an equal society, while also saying she supports the decision to move forward with replacing her despite the election being 42 days away.
“I did not cry when she died, but I cried when Antonin Scalia died,” McCain said. “It’s really a relationship that I hope that all of Americans can look to about being politically on two separate sides and still coming together and having great love and respect for one another,” she said, referring to the unique friendship the two justices had.
Later on in the discussion, McCain got into a heated argument with co-host Sara Haines, prompting Whoopi Goldberg to step in and break it up.
“One of my biggest concerns is, if we have a contested election in 2020 and it’s split even, like there was in 2000, we have to have a full court ruling on it,” McCain said. “So I think the potential for constitutional chaos is absolutely the most imminent it has been in my modern lifetime.”
Haines then attempted to slander top contender Amy Coney Barrett, but McCain was having none of that.
“I would be careful slandering her, Sara, before she’s even been put in the court,” McCain said. “And this is what I’m talking about with the Kavanaugh stuff.”
