‘How Dare You!’: Meghan McCain and Juan Williams Go At It Over Health Care


It was a shortened edition of The Five on Thursday night, thanks to Fox’s coverage of President Donald Trump‘s remarks aboard the U.S.S. Intrepid. But there was still plenty of time for a heated battle between Meghan McCain and Juan Williams.

While the rest of the panel lauded, to various degrees, the passage of the House healthcare bill, Juan Williams was the lone dissenter — labeling the legislation “a fraud.”

“How dare you!” McCain said, interrupting Williams — who continued his statement.

“This is a fraud!” he said again.

From there, it went off the rails.

“I want you to go to Arizona and say this,” McCain said. “I want Juan to go to Arizona and talk to people I know who are paying more than their mortgage for Obamacare premiums. ”

“It’s a disaster! Why are you freaking out so much if nothing happened? If this isn’t a big deal, why are you freaking out? You’re freaking out!”

“This is a lie!” Williams said, before repeatedly saying Meghan’s name, unable to get another word in.

The rest of the panel intervened at that point as the show was about to go to break.

“Let me tell you something: Don’t mess with McCain,” said Kimberly Guilfoyle.
