Things went downhill very quickly on “The View” as co-hosts Meghan McCain and Joy Behar got into a shouting match over socialism.
Discussing Democratic congressional nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the women debated whether her victory in New York signaled a move further to the left for the Democrat Party.
McCain admitted that she would like more Democratic Socialists like Ocasio-Cortez to run for political office.
“Because I think you’ll lose spectacularly and then I will look forward to election night when I will finally get to tell everybody, ‘I told you so,'” she laughed.
McCain continued explaining how socialism has not benefited any country and asked, “name one country that socialism has ever worked.”
“Sweden. Denmark. Norway. Finland. Iceland,” Behar began to rattle off as McCain kept speaking.
“Every Democratic Socialist who is going on TV saying that it’s good needs to start paying 90 percent in taxes,” she said as Behar distracted with her ongoing list, much to the audience’s delight.
“On your tax form, I think you should start paying the amount of taxes every socialist in this country thinks you need to be, because if you think the government is so good at spending money, look at the V.A.,” she said.
“Hold on,” Behar interjected.
“It’s dangerous!” McCain shouted.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg regained control of the set for a moment as she told the women to stop talking over each other.
“Countries with 300,000 people in no way can be related in any way comparably to the United States of America, I’m sorry,” McCain attempted to finish. “If you think it’s good, then you need to be paying the amount of taxes that a socialist country —”
Behar tried to interrupt again as Goldberg once again shouted to move past the debate.
An exasperated McCain said she was “petrified” to see socialism being normalized in America.
“I’m sorry, comparing it to a small country in Europe is delusional. And I’m sorry, some of us don’t want socialism,” she said over Behar as Goldberg broke away to a commercial.
