Meghan McCain Wishes She Could ‘Attack' 16-Year-Old Climate Activist Greta Thunberg
Meghan McCain wants to have it both ways. On the one hand, she "disagrees" with Time magazine's decision to put 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg on its Person of the Year cover. On the other, she doesn't want to look like a hypocrite by "attacking" a child when she has previously said it's not appropriate to drag 13-year-old Barron Trump into critiques of his father.

"I don't put a lot of clout into the Time Person of the Year," McCain said when the topic came up on The View Thursday morning. "Keep in mind, Hitler and the Ayatollah were also the Person of the Year."

She went on to explain that she thinks the Ukraine whistleblower, who was named among the Guardians of the Year, would have been a "more salient and timely choice."

Trade Deal a Win for Pence—And His Lobbyist Pals
Nicholas Kamm/AFP via Getty ImagesCongress and the White House appear to have reached a deal on a landmark North American free-trade agreement (not to be confused with the North American Free Trade Agreement), and few people in Washington are more pleased about it than Mike Pence.

Since President Donald Trump took it upon his administration to remake North American trade policy, upending a 20-year tenure of mostly free-flowing goods on the continent, it has largely fallen to the vice president to whip up support for the plan in Congress, among the president's supporters, and in the public more generally.

In a statement Tuesday, Pence was characteristically deferential to his boss. "Thanks to the strong leadership of President [Trump] and the efforts of our Administration over the last year, Speaker Pelosi and Congressional Democrats have finally acquiesced to the voice of the American people have agreed to allow a vote on the USMCA in the House," he tweeted. But the deal was undoubtedly a win for Pence personally.
