Greenwald Mocks Meghan McCain’s Tearful Remarks on Anti-Semitism: ‘Single Dumbest Thing’ To Ever Happen on TV


The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald mocked Meghan McCain Thursday over her emotional reaction to comments from Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

McCain broke down in tears on The View Thursday when she said Omar’s controversial comments about Israel are “very scary,” and anti-Semitism shouldn’t be a politicized as an issue.

Greenwald took note of her commentary, and bashed it as “the single dumbest thing ever happen on television.”

He also decried the comments from former Sen. John McCain’s daughter as “an excellent exhibit for how nepotism and dynastic privilege degrades culture.”

Greenwald went on to blast The View‘s “dumb & offensive” conversation before diving into the intricacies of America’s relationship with Israel.

He posted articles arguing that American support for Israel makes it more difficult to broker peace in the Middle East because it gives the impression of political bias against Palestine. This costs the U.S. the public support they might’ve receive from moderate Arabs while simultaneously giving oxygen to anti-American sentiment in the region.
