Mary Trump Rips McCain For Ducking Her Interview: ‘A Shame’ She ‘Didn’t Have The Courage’

On her final Monday as host of The View, Meghan McCain was nowhere to be seen during the show’s big interview with Mary Trump who was there to promote her new book Reckoning, which explains the national trauma suffered by her uncle, former President Donald Trump and suggests a way to heal.

Trump took a clear shot at McCain near the very end of the interview, saying the co-host didn’t have the “courage” to debate her on live TV.

She began by hammering Donald Trump and his Republican allies for perpetrating a second “big lie” about the Jan. 6 insurrection and highlighting just how much blame her uncle deserves for “the unnecessary deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans” due to his mishandling of the coronavirus.

“One thing Donald proved is that using racism as a platform was successful, and I think that’s why we see so much strife in this country,” she said. “And we need to continue having the kinds of conversations about race and gender that you have.”

“It’s a shame that your colleague didn’t have the courage to come on and have this conversation with me,” Mary Trump continued, making it abundantly obvious who she was talking about. “But I appreciate that you were all willing to take up these very difficult subjects because racism, in my view, is at the heart of everything that’s wrong in 21st century America.”

Her remarks were followed by an awkward pause from the rest of the co-hosts before Whoopi Goldberg wrapped up the segment by plugging their guest’s new book.
