While the longtime co-host formula of “The View” — one conservative outnumbered by a handful of liberals at the table — would seem unfair, Meghan McCain has been proving herself a worthy adversary all by her lonesome in the face of Joy Behar and her leftist cohorts.
To wit, when other co-hosts of “The View” expressed outrage over the data mining abuses of Cambridge Analytica — the political data analytics firm that worked onPresident Donald Trump’s victorious 2016 campaign — McCain wasted no time pointing out their hypocrisy.
“I don’t completely understand this scandal now in the sense that this has been happening since 2012. The Obama campaign did this brilliantly. They used micro-targeting and data mining,” she told her co-hosts.
She then backed up her claim by noting “The Victory Lab” said the Obama campaign used data mining, calling it “a new political currency that predicted the behavior of individual humans. The campaign didn’t just know who you were; it knew exactly how it could turn you into the type of person it wanted you to be.”
