Bush tribute erupts into shouting match between Meghan McCain and Joy Behar on ‘The View’December 4, 2018
A tribute to former President George H.W. Bush, who died Friday, turned fiery on “The View” Monday.
About three minutes into the segment, longtime co-host Joy Behar brought up Bush’s concern for the environment.
“As a candidate he said, ‘Those who think we’re powerless to do anything about the greenhouse effect are forgetting about the White House effect,’ ” Behar said, quoting Bush’s 1988 speech. “And then he signed into law the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, one of the most sweeping environment statutes ever.”
Behar then seized the opportunity to rag on the nation’s current leader, President Donald Trump.
“This president that we have now is trying to unravel everything that he did and Obama did,” she asserted. “And if I ever become a one-issue voter, it will be about pollution and the greenhouse effect…”
Meghan McCain cut her co-host off asking: “Can we focus on the president, please? I don’t want to talk about Trump when we’re in the moment of – we’re honoring a great president.”
