PELOSI SAYS “TRUMP WANTS US TO IMPEACH HIM”: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on @JimmyKimmelLive that Pres. Trump actually wants to be impeached because he believes the Republican-controlled Senate would bail him out — the co-hosts discuss if they agree. https://t.co/2C0XhvyKnP pic.twitter.com/deHCsnePp6— The View (@TheView) May 31, 2019

Whoopi Goldberg chimed in to rescue Meghan McCain after an off the wall dialogue advocating the assassination of President Trump.
After Whoopi sounded off, McCain seemed to have come to her senses and stuttered , “I don’t mean literally! I’m so sorry! Oh my God! I’m so sorry!” "I mean like a metaphorical. I talk, I’m a shoo…, I’m a hunter and a shooter, I’m sorry about my metaphors. And I talk like a redneck, so sorry. But I will say, you have to, you have to, you have to definitely do this. If you’re gonna impeach him, you have to impeach him. It can’t just be proceedings that don’t end up successful. And again, please don’t take that the wrong way, that’s how I talk.”
Behar tried easing the situation by using a baseball metaphor. “If you swing you have to hit the ball,” to help McCain wiggle off the hook.
On the next episode, co-hosts McCain and Behar were Missing in Action on “The View” which lead to speculation that they may have been suspended from the show for their asinine comments.
