‘The View’ Audience Erupts in Cheer as the Ladies Criticize Kelly — McCain Doesn’t Let Them off Easy

After recent news of White House Chief of Staff John Kelly’s departure from his position at the end of the year, “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin drew applause from the audience over her criticism — Meghan McCain felt the opposite on the issue and scolded the audience for clapping.

“The View” ladies discussed the outgoing Kelly’s position, but not before co-host Whoopi Goldberg took a swipe at President Donald Trump filling the job position when she posed the question, “Do they want the job in Washington with you?”

“‘Cause he’s [Trump] his own chief of staff,” Hostin said, adding that Trump and Kelly clashed after he took the position, resulting in Kelly’s reputation going down the drain.

“I think General John Kelly still has a fabulous reputation based off of the career that he served this country,” co-host Abby Huntsman said in defense of Kelly. “… What so anyone that works for President Trump has a bad reputation?”

Co-host Sunny Hostin then went on to shoot criticism at the soon-to-be former chief of staff.

“He said the civil war was due to a lack of compromise,” Hostin said.

“When I look at all of the things he did during the administration, that’s what I will remember him for, I’m not saying everyone, but that’s what I will remember him for, especially when he disparaged a congresswoman, lied about her and then refused to apologize.”

McCain cut off Hostin after the audience clapped: “I think it’s weird to be clapping.”

“Whatever you think about his politics, he lost his son in combat for freedom, and clapping in that way, again, your call: Everyone can interpret him differently,” McCain added.

McCain defended Kelly, who was a four-star military general and a Gold Star parent:
“I do think there’s some things that precede politics and losing a son and being part of a Gold Star family is one of those things.”

As IJR Red reported, Hostin wasn’t the only one who had harsh words for Kelly as Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) criticized him for not apologizing to Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), calling it a sign of “cowardice” — counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway slammed the “29-year-old congresswoman who doesn’t seem to know much about anything.”
