The View Dings Lara Trump for Comments About Shutdown: ‘Such a Bad Look’

The hosts of The View criticized Lara Trump this morning for her comments about federal workers not getting paid during the government shutdown.

In an interview with BOLD TV earlier this week, the president’s daughter-in-law said, “Listen, this is it’s not fair to you, and we all get that, but this is so much bigger than any one person. It is a little bit of pain, but it’s going to be for the future of our country and their children and their grandchildren, and generations after them will thank them for their sacrifice right now.”

The co-hosts today made it clear they’re getting tired of the shutdown lasting so long, with Meghan McCain saying at one point, “This is absolute garbage and if anyone wants to storm the Bastille, I’m down to go with you and to figure this out.”

Joy Behar then brought up Trump’s comments and likened them to a “let them eat cake” moment.

Sunny Hostin read Trump’s comments and McCain said, “It’s just such a bad look.”

“If you are a millionaire’s wife, you may not understand that there are families that can’t afford to feed their children,” Hostin said.

“She’s married to him [Eric Trump], she knows pain,” Behar joked.
