In another segment of Why Is Meghan McCain On The View, Stacey Abrams repeatedly shut down McCain on the subject of the Mueller report by repeating the simple fact that nobody knows what’s in it because Republicans are hiding it. You may remember Stacey Abrams as the woman who very nearly won the Georgia governor’s race in 2018 and then spent months fighting what was pretty clearly some rank voter suppression before eventually conceding. She has remained a staunch voting rights advocate, gave the Democratic response to Trump’s 2019 State of the Union address, and has not ruled out a run for the presidency in 2020.
And she is definitely smarter than Meghan McCain.
“The truth of the matter should be made public,” @staceyabrams says of the Muller report. “You should not have someone who disparaged the process being the person who determines whether we get to see it.”— The View (@TheView) March 27, 2019

As a guest on The View Wednesday, Abrams was of course asked about her thoughts on the Mueller report and the Barr four-page fan letter to Donald Trump. As many people have been saying over and over again, Abrams pointed out that people deserve to know the truth, and they won’t know the truth until they can see it with their own eyes, not have it summarized to them by someone specifically hired to shield the very subject of the report.
Or, in her own words:
Predictably, Meghan McCain just had to weigh in with her usual sharp insights.
“Every Democrat says wait for the Mueller report, wait for the Mueller report, and now it comes out and it seems like Democrats don’t like the results, and so we’re not accepting the results of the Mueller report,” she said.
Host Joy Behar jumped right in to point out the fact that “we don’t know the results,” with Abrams agreeing.
“That’s exactly right, we don’t know the results of the Mueller report,” Abrams said. “We know the results of the summary of a reading of a report by a partisan that was just appointed by the person who was the subject of the report. That’s the problem.”
The audience erupts into applause at this. But does McCain know when she’s beat? Of course not.
“I do believe that when you have the breakdown of what we can trust when it fits whichever narrative that we want, and I myself have many questions still remaining, but they came out and said that there was no collusion, definitively, Mueller said no collusion, so you don’t accept there was no collusion from Mueller?” McCain says.
Mueller didn’t say that, Meghan. Or if he did, we wouldn’t know, because none of us have seen the actual report because Republicans are refusing to release it.
“That was a pundit summary of a complicated question, which is what happened preceding the 2016 election,” Abrams fired back. “I don’t know the answer because I haven’t seen the report.”
The segment ended before McCain could do another loop around the “this is what’s in the report I haven’t seen” track, thankfully.
Seriously, why is McCain on The View? Fans of the show do not seem to like her at all.
Thank you StAcey for clarifying! Meghan, did you get that? #ReleaseTheReport— GotJoy (@MDJoy21) March 27, 2019

Wow, @staceyabrams shushing Meghan today as she yet again tried to shout over someone gave me so much life.— LindsayBoston (@LindsayBoston) March 27, 2019
This is exactly what Mr. Khan said yesterday and she never uttered a word...she was only polite because her father was being praised. Stacey said nothing different.— TAStar73 (@MISST4LYFE) March 27, 2019
AGAIN @TheView when are you all gonna let @MeghanMcCain and @HuntsmanAbby wear their MAGA hats to work ? For Meghan to assume the Democrats are upset about the Mueller report when the report hasn't even been made available to the public. These two ladies are so FAKE. pic.twitter.com/Y1STdCfz8g— Marcus (@dreadstuy9) March 27, 2019
Meghan "no one" has to understand anything that is wrong. You can't clean this up. It does not fit so don't try to make your point of view the truth. You are wrong!— Sandra Gordon (@Seg72072007) March 27, 2019
It's as if Republicans dont listen— Biscuit Boom (@M2C_BoomQue) March 27, 2019
It was great to have @staceyabrams on. Super smart, informed & always on point. MM doesn’t speak for Dems, but always wants to. I’m glad Ms. Abrams got the convo back on track to the fact that the public hasn’t seen the Mueller report. Stay in your lane Meghan.— KristinaT (@kht718) March 27, 2019
How long before McCain takes the opposite stance?— JKDAnthony10 (@JKDAnthony10) March 27, 2019
I have watched your show for years. However, the snarky attitude, the trying to talk over everything one else, the arrogant "know it all" attitude of @MeghanMcCain....has me reaching for the remote— HalleeHaller (@halleehaller) March 27, 2019
Well said Stacy!— AmFil (@AmFil_B_man) March 27, 2019
BTW, if someone says, they respect you, & says “but” right after, then they don’t respect you.
After being schooled today please stop saying there was no collision. There was evidence, but apparently Mueller determined not enough evidence to charge criminal conspiracy @HuntsmanAbby @MeghanMcCain. You’ve got to get this right! #ReleaseTheReport— Lori (@woogie24_) March 27, 2019
Love that Stacey Abrams shut Meghan down. 🙌🏽👏🏽— Marcella L. (@Marcella555) March 27, 2019
Abrams is SO great. McCain tried it, but she got hit with Heisman pose. 🙂— TeaWald🌸 (@TeaWald) March 27, 2019
Stacy Abrams is exactly right @MeghanMcCain we don’t know what we don’t know. What don’t you get it was a summary by an appointed 45 goon. Why are they afraid to release the full report.— Ikpazihuatl (@notlazotzin) March 27, 2019
Meghan is missing the point, as usual. The report has not been made public. No one will accept someone's summary over an actual living document. Why is the report a secret and why do we need someone's interpretation?— Sandra Gordon (@Seg72072007) March 27, 2019
When will the view part ways with this airhead meghan? She has NO respect for Stacey Abrams & they need to called out. She ask the most dumb & insulting questions that makes no sense to no one. Plain & simple she's on the show only bc of her daddy last name!— Walter Hudson (@walterhudon17) March 27, 2019
For 2 women who claim to be never trumpers they sure do support trump every day on this show and even though it has been said over and over that it was bars report not mueller's report that was put out they still support trump and are in denial— Debra Thompson (@Waterlily4) March 27, 2019
