McCain took offense to Williams’s actions as she shared that her sister was born with this condition.
“Wendy, my little sister was born with a cleft pallet,” The View star tweeted. “Making fun of anyone for being born with it is just gross and cruel. If anyone wants to help children born with them, Operation Smile does incredible work for providing cleft lip and palate repair surgeries to children worldwide.”

Cher also called out Wendy Williams The legendary Cher also called out Williams for her actions and even called out for her firing.
“There is no apology for what she did and laughed about,” Cher wrote. “I know these children and adults. They go through hell, their parents go through hell. F***her apology. She wants to keep her job. Can’t contain anger.”
In another tweet, Cher tried to make Williams understand how insensitive she was.
“I was trying to try and hold my temper but I’m so f**ing angry, I can’t,” Cher tweeted at Williams directly. “In 1985 I made a film called Mask, through that film I became involved with children and adults who had craniofacial anomalies. You have no idea what these people go through. Twenty-plus operations.”
“The impeachment trial could be over by tonight,” Joy Behar said at the top of The View on Friday morning. She appeared to inadvertently reference Fred Armisen’s SNL impression of her when she added, “And Republican Senator Lamar Alexander, who has a deciding vote on letting witnesses testify, basically said that Trump is guilty but ‘so what, who cares?’”
Behar went on to say that by voting for witnesses Alexander “would save democracy, a small thing,” Behar said. “But no, he doesn’t want to.” Later, she argued that Alexander is giving “cover” to Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) so that she can vote yes and still get re-elected. “But she’s a hypocrite and a liar, and I don’t trust her as far as I could throw her,” she said.
Unsurprisingly, Meghan McCain had a different take.
The backdrop was full of red and white polka-dot hearts, but there was no love on display Friday morning between The View co-hosts Joy Behar and Meghan McCain.
What was supposed to be a light-hearted opening segment about the bizarre Twitter feud between President Donald Trump and 2020 hopeful Mike Bloomberg, began to fly off the rails when McCain joked that instead of saying “Happy Valentine’s Day” to her husband this morning, she woke up and asked him, “Does Bloomberg really think it’s going to be this easy?”
“Michael Bloomberg, when he was our mayor for three terms, I always knew to be a sort of calm, above-it-all politician, doesn’t get in the mud,” she said. “So this new version of him, it’ll be interesting to see how this works, this like, thug, white guy, ‘Yo mama’ thing.’”
As McCain questioned his ability to win over Democratic voters who so far have favored Bernie Sanders, Behar defended his credentials. “Listen, I’m not shilling for Mayor Bloomberg here,” she said.
“You kind of are,” McCain said, interrupting her.
“I like him fine,” Behar replied. “I like Biden too. I like all of them, I told you, I’ll vote for any of them, I’ll vote for Pee-wee Herman!”
“I'm really glad that you decided to come and talk to us,” Meghan McCain said when it was her turn to question Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on The View Wednesday morning. “I feel like you’re the bogey woman of the right and I’m the bogey woman of the left, so it’s interesting to be talking to you.”
After explaining that as a conservative she believes “big government is very, very dangerous,” McCain admitted that similar to how Fox News views the senator, she does believe Bernie Sanders’ “complete paradigm shift of the American system” is “like the apocalypse.”
Ocasio-Cortez has her own primary and re-election campaign to run this fall, but she was primarily there on The View representing Sanders, who she endorsed last fall to great fanfare, possibly helping push him into the frontrunner status he now enjoys.
