Meghan McCain Defends Mike Pompeo: ‘I Don’t Know What’s Going on at NPR’
Meghan McCain, the conservative co-host of The View, rallied to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s defense on Monday following his contentious exchange with NPR’s Mary Louise Kelly, which resulted in Pompeo accusing the NPR host of being a liar.
“There’s a weird pattern right now of people walking out of NPR interviews,” she said. “Remember—we talked on the show—Adam Driver did it, because something he asked not to be played was played.”
“This is now the second notable person that’s walking out of NPR, so I don’t know what’s going on over at NPR,” McCain continued. “I will say if you go into an interview and you’re someone like Mike Pompeo and you say, ‘I want to talk about this, I don’t want to talk about this’ and you agree ahead of time and that journalist breaks the agreement, I can understand how you would get frustrated. I didn’t think he sounded that angry either.”
