The View host Meghan McCain condemned the actions of the mob who stormed the Capitol building on January 6 in a fiery statement during an episode of the daytime talk series that aired one day after the shocking event.
In an Instagram video shared by the show, Meghan looked saddened as she spoke her mind regarding the actions of those who believed it was their right to take over a federal building as a response to the alleged stolen presidential election of Donald Trump.
She began by saying that the incident was one of the great national tragedies of her lifetime. She then called it one of America's darkest days and that she had been absolutely despondent while watching the events unfold. She said she is currently in Washington D.C. and that her sister-in-law works on Capitol Hill. Meghan explained the office door where her sister-in-law worked had its window busted.
The View host continued, saying this was a good time to take a very hard look at where America is as a country and how President Trump has affected that.
She remarked that the bedrock of the American democracy is the peaceful transition of power. She said Trump was clearly a president that had turned into a "mad king."
