Cenk Uygur Rips Meghan McCain For ‘Defending’ Trump: ‘It’s Not About Me Or My Dad, So I Don’t Care’

The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur called out The View co-host Meghan McCain following her awkward interview on Late Night with Seth Meyers, saying she “doesn’t like [Donald] Trump only because he attacks her dad.”

McCain called out Seth Meyers on his show Tuesday, accusing the host of defending Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and her remarks about Israel. Meyers repeatedly pointed out that Omar had apologized for her remarks that drew criticism, which later led to McCain snapping at Meyers “are you her publicist?” at one point during the tense interview.

“I mean look, in the context of the conversation she had on the show, it’s clear that she is sticking up for Trump, right? And I mean she has, she sticks up for Trump on The View,” noted co-host Ana Kasparian.

“Meghan McCain is a conservative, so she doesn’t like Trump when it comes to her and her family,” Uygur said on the Wednesday broadcast. “If it doesn’t touch me, go crush anyone that you like.”

Uygur noted Omar received a number of death threats after Trump tweeted out a video juxtaposing footage of the 9/11 terror attacks with a speech made by Omar addressing discrimination against Muslims.

“She got death threats before that video, he knew it, and he sent that out to antagonize her anyway.” Uygur said. “And Meghan McCain defends that kind of abhorrent behavior, why? It’s not about me or my dad, so I don’t care at all.”
