The show took a turn when the group began discussing how a government whistleblower reportedly filed a complaint about President Donald Trump allegedly making an unspecified “promise” to a foreign leader. McCain, 34, quickly compared the situation to WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange, arguing that some Democrats are being hypocritical for supporting Assange, but are “screaming bloody murder about this situation right now, about this whistleblower.” Co-hosts Joy Behar and Abby Huntsman and regular guest Navarro, an outspoken Republican critic of Trump, added to the discussion. “Wait, I’m on the left — I don’t agree with that at all,” Behar said. As the conversation grew hearted, McCain fired back, “Excuse me! Maybe I was clumsy in the way that I said it.” “I’m two feet away, I don’t need you to scream at me this way,” Navarro soon told McCain. “I don’t know what you just said,” said McCain.
