During Thursday’s episode of The View, Meghan McCain, like most Republicans, tried to defend Trump’s payoff to porn actress Stormy Daniels.

McCain was quick to compare Trump’s payoff to Alexander Hamilton’s payoff.

McCain stated, “In 1791, Alexander Hamilton paid off his mistress’ husband. Paying off mistresses has been going on since literally the birth of our Democracy.”




Then host Sonny Hostin chimed in to put things into perspective for the viewers.

Hostin stated, “I am such a traditionalist, as many people know, and I am so offended by these allegations of love child, and sleeping with a porn star when your wife just had a baby—and people should care about it.”

She continued, “But people should also care that these may be illegal campaign contributions used to conceal these affairs so as to influence the outcome of the election, because if people know about all of this stuff maybe they wouldn’t have voted for him.”

But McCain tried to change the subject. She noted that we know Trump has slept with millions of women so it’s not a surprise.

McCain stated, “I’m not surprised by this? Who’s surprised by this? The idea that he possibly impregnated someone, slept with a million women—we know this about President Trump.”




Her comments received some reactions:
