The View co-host Meghan McCain blasted Senator Rand Paul for calling on the media to out the Ukraine whistleblower, saying his remarks are ‘crazy.’
The Political Insider covered speculative reports on the identity of the whistleblower as CIA officer Eric Ciaramella, a registered Democrat who worked with former Vice President Joe Biden and former CIA Director John Brennan.
The mainstream media has yet to name him. Paul demanded they do so.
“I say tonight to the media: do your job and print his name,” Paul said at a Kentucky rally for President Trump.
McCain’s response was simple: “I hate him.”
“He sounds so crazy,” she added. “Why does he sound so crazy? He does.”

View co-host and noted legal scholar, Whoopi Goldberg, responded to McCain’s pre-teen whining that Senator Rand Paul sounds “so crazy” by explaining why.
“Because he has forgotten the rule of law,” Goldberg claimed, failing to note that any time the media wants to out somebody involving President Trump or any of his associates, the ladies of The View would have zero complaints.
“Had Nixon tried to do this to anyone we would have had him out, said, ‘No, that’s not how the law works, the Constitution doesn’t work like that, that’s not how the law works,” Goldberg, who has no clue how the law works, seethed.
The duo sounded like a bunch of squawking ‘wacko birds’ as the late Senator John McCain might have said.

McCain Hates Paul
McCain’s hatred of Rand Paul echoes that of her father who once claimed the Senator “is now working for Vladimir Putin.”
McCain’s comments came after Paul blocked an attempt to vote on a treaty for NATO membership for Montenegro in 2017.
“If there is objection, you are achieving the objectives of Vladimir Putin,” McCain said. “You are achieving the objectives of trying to dismember this small country, which has already been the subject of an attempted coup.”
The late Senator referred to Paul and fellow Senators Ted Cruz and Justin Amash as “wacko birds” in 2013 and criticized the former for a nearly 13-hour filibuster that pressured the Obama administration to clarify its position on the use of domestic drones.
“It’s always the wacko birds on right and left that get the media megaphone,” he said at the time.
Nowadays they get a megaphone on shows like The View.
