Meghan McCain expressed her disapproval at Elizabeth Warren's promise to fill at least half of her cabinet's positions with women.
Meghan McCain says she reacted to the New York Times editorial board’s dual endorsement of senators Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar by “laughing my ass off.”“First of all, you’re endorsing two women with two completely ideologically different views on their platforms,” “The View” co-host said on the show Tuesday, before adding that everyone will have to “choose one” of the two very different candidates.“This is not how this works,” continued McCain, who worked on her father’s John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign. “Also, on the final point of this, you chose both of the women. Just say, ‘I want a woman. I don’t really care about politics. I don’t care about anything else.’ Just double down on identity politics.”Also Read: New York Times Endorses Both Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren for 2020 Democratic PrimaryShe called the two-way endorsement a “huge act of cowardice” and noted she didn’t expect much else from a “garbage publication.” That caused co-host Joy Behar to chime in, arguing she didn’t agree the Times is a “garbage publication.”“It is now,” McCain said, but Behar cautioned against condemning the whole newspaper for “one incident.”The Times’ editorial board put all pre-endorsement presidential candidate interviews on the record for the first time ahead of the big double endorsement. Last week, deputy editorial page editor Kathleen Kingsbury announced the intention to make it the “most transparent” endorsement in the editorial board’s history.‘NY TIMES’ ENDORSES WARREN, KLOBUCHAR: After ‘The New York Times’ editorial board broke tradition by endorsing two presidential candidates, the co-hosts question if they made the right decision. https://t.co/1091s9WYqN pic.twitter.com/kzHKtIjkRE\- The View (@TheView) January 21, 2020Read original story Meghan McCain: ‘I Was Laughing My Ass Off’ at NYT Presidential Endorsement At TheWrap
In a radical break from convention reflecting the divided state of the Democratic Party, the New York Times on Monday endorsed both Senators Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren in the 2020 primary.“Both the radical and the realist models warrant serious consideration. If there were ever a time to be open to new ideas, it is now. If there were ever a time to seek stability, now is it,” the Times editorial board wrote. “That’s why we’re endorsing the most effective advocates for each approach. They are Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar.”The Times praised Warren, the former Harvard law professor turned senator from Massachusetts as “a standard-bearer for the Democratic left” who “speaks elegantly of how the economic system is rigged against all but the wealthiest Americans.”Also Read: 2020 Presidential Contenders: Who's Still Challenging Donald Trump and Who's Dropped Out (Photos)After discounting other centrists in the Democratic field, including former vice president Joe Biden and former South Bend, Indiana, mayor Pete Buttigieg, the Times offered praise for Klobuchar, calling the Minnesota Democrat “a standard-bearer for the Democratic center” whose “vision goes beyond the incremental” and who is “the very definition of Midwestern charisma, grit and sticktoitiveness.”The Times issued its endorsement just two weeks ahead of the Iowa caucuses, the first polling in the Democratic primary process.The paper acknowledged that critics might be “dissatisfied that this page is not throwing its weight behind a single candidate, favoring centrists or progressives” and concluded its editorial by saying, “May the best woman win.”Read original story New York Times Endorses Both Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren for 2020 Democratic Primary At TheWrap
