Meghan McCain on St. Louis Gun Couple: ‘Defund the Police’ Narrative ‘Breeds Fear’
Meghan McCain, The View’s resident conservative co-host, defended a white St. Louis couple who brandished guns at Black Lives Matter protesters near their property, claiming the recent “defund the police” narrative from activists “breeds hysteria and it breeds fear.”
“But the question I also have is if the narrative is now ‘defund the police’ and when you call the police—and there’s been audio and video has been played all over Fox News of people calling the police and the 911 call saying please call your representative in City Hall instead,” McCain asserted, apparently referencing a 911 call made by a scared woman trapped in her car as protesters marched through an intersection.
“And if there’s a feeling…that if you call the police and they are being defunded and they won’t come, it breeds hysteria and it breeds fear,” she continued. “And I think we have to be really clear about this role going forward of what the police is in the United States of America.”
