On Monday, The View co-host Joy Behar suggested that Democrats should wait until they are elected before they reveal their real plans.
Behar’s remarks occurred during a segment where the panel was discussing former Beto O’Rourke’s (D-TX) decision to end his presidential campaign. “They should not tell everything they’re going to do,” Behar said. “Like if you are going to take people’s guns away, wait until you get elected and then take the guns away. Don’t tell them ahead of time.”
“That’s what people like me think you’re going to do,” co-host Meghan McCain responded.
O’Rourke was the first 2020 Democratic presidential candidate to call for a nationwide mandatory gun confiscation program for all “assault weapons.” While O’Rourke’s declaration “Hell, yes, we’re going to take away your AR-15 [and] your AK-47” received massive applause from his left-wing supporters, many Democratic lawmakers have since been distancing themselves from the rhetoric. When O’Rourke ended his bid for the presidency, he was receiving less than 2.% of the vote on average, according to Real Clear Politics.

“Beto, when my husband told me he got out of the race, I think he’s actually like a beta test for why going so national and being beloved by the media is so dangerous,” McCain said. O’Rourke received more campaign contributions in one quarter than any Senate candidate in American history, ending up with approximately $80 million, The Daily Wire reports.
“He also made some statements about religious institutions get their tax status removed from them because they didn’t support same-sex marriage,” McCain continued. “So he did a lot of, like, battleground culture war, and he ran as the most left, most woke candidate and look where he ended.”
