This Is Why Meghan McCain Is Calling Out Chris Cuomo

Meghan McCain has a pointed message to share about CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, and she did not hold back. During the May 21 episode of "The View," the co-hosts discussed their thoughts on Chris' advising of his brother Andrew Cuomo amid his sexual harassment allegations, and McCain made sure to point out the so-called hypocrisy of his apology. In his apology, Chris said his involvement was a "mistake" and that "it will not happen again," but said he is always "family first."

"I think it's really hypocritical. As Ana [Navarro] pointed out, we're all in positions where, you know, we work in media and politics and we have to talk about people we love. Quite frankly, if my dad had been accused of sexual assault, I would be talking about it on 'The View' because I'm not a snowflake," she slammed. Chris invited his brother Andrew onto his show "Cuomo Primetime" several times throughout the coronavirus pandemic, so McCain and many viewers believe it's unfair that Chris has been silent about his brother's controversy.

"There's no crying in baseball. This is the job we signed up for. If you can't hack it, you should do something else," the mom of one continued. She ended her bitter statement by calling Chris a "sanctimonious tool" and saying he needs to "grow up."

While McCain is clearly not happy with the situation, her "View" co-hosts had some mixed feelings. Keep reading to learn what they had to say about the ordeal.

Other View co-hosts were more empathetic of Chris Cuomo

Meghan McCain does not seem to be accepting Chris Cuomo's apology regarding his involvement with Andrew Cuomo's advisement sessions, but her "View" co-hosts seemed a bit more understanding of the situation.

"From my personal experience, I have spoken about the Andrew Cuomo situation at length on this show, on CNN, on social media. I have never once gotten any chastisement. I have never gotten any communication. I have never gotten any feedback. I have never gotten anything from Chris Cuomo trying to influence what I say or angry at something that I may have said negative about his brother," Ana Navarro said on May 21. She noted that she appreciates Chris' apology and feels that he doesn't seem to be trying to influence CNN's coverage of Andrew in any way.

"The View" co-host Sara Haines seemed to be in the middle of Navarro's and McCain's mindsets. She said that she blames CNN executives for allowing Andrew to appear on "Cuomo Primetime" so frequently in the first place and called it a "mistake." However, she did say that she believes Chris has always been clear that he will always put family before everything. "I don't think he was ever not transparent about the fact that he was family first," she said. "But I still think it wasn't the right decision to have had [Andrew] on in the first place."
