A tumultuous and heated argument between the co-hosts erupted with increasingly persistent and fairly placed criticism of Greene, this time stemming from comments by lawmakers after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ordered GOP members to prove that they had received a vaccination against the coronavirus. This request from Pelosi prompted Greene to compare wearing face masks to the Holocaust.
“You know, we can look back to a time in history when people had to wear a gold star, and they were definitely treated like second-class citizens, so much so that they were put in trains and taken to Nazi gas chambers. Germany, ”the controversial member said in an interview.

Greene’s remarks were condemned by more moderate Republican lawmakers, including Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Illinois, and now-GOP, ousted conference president Liz Cheney.
Taking Greene’s final comments, the cast of “The View” spoke out against the remarks, but McCain begged to delay and turned the tables instead. “She was stripped of her committees; it has absolutely no legislative power in Congress, ”McCain said boldly.
McCain went on to hammer home Rep Ilhan Omar over previously criticized remarks made by lawmakers, perceived by the right wing to be anti-Semitic, for which Omar would later apologize but not lose any place on the House committee.
“It should be juxtaposed when Representative Ilhan Omar said that the Jewish people had hypnotized the world and that it was ‘the Benjamins’. She still sits on the Foreign Relations Committee and is still able to dictate foreign policy in the United States of America, ”the right-wing co-host continued.
“I would love if the energy put on a crazy woman in Congress… if she’s the face of Republicans, the Squad is the face of Democrats… I would love Democrats to put that same kind of energy into what’s going on. left, ”McCain said, saying the media seek to cover up any wrongdoing by progressive members of Congress. “Frankly, this is how people turn red. The media don’t want the team to look bad. They just want Marjorie Taylor to look bad. Anti-Semitism is a huge problem everywhere. “
Then the misfortune happened. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg had to take the show to a commercial break, which left for an extremely upset McCain. “Why are you cutting me off?” McCain yelled, before Goldberg answered, “I’m cutting you off because we have to go, Meghan!” Why do you think I’m cutting you off? “

When the publicity returned, co-host Joy Behar entered the heated segment, before McCain stepped in to claim that political right-wing anti-Semitism is “crazy people and tiki torches,” while claiming that the contempt of the left is “insidious and much more sinister.” “
“It’s important to know who can legislate,” McCain said. “What if you’re for BDS and you’re anti-Israel in the way [Omar] is that it gives a real power to make legislative changes as we saw last week with “The Squad”! “
