Meghan McCain: Trump's Mistakes are Controversial, but Clinton's are Lethal

News

"It's so egregious."

Fox News contributor and host Meghan McCain lamented the "double-standard" in the mainstream media's coverage of presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, calling it "egregious."

Speaking Friday on "The Five," McCain, who like her father is not a Trump fan, commented on how news outlets jumped on Trump's accusation that President Obama founded the Islamic State, while offering significantly less coverage of the latest Clinton email revelations.

"When Donald Trump says things, it offends people sometimes and it can be controversial, but when Hillary makes mistakes, people die," McCain said.

She offered Iran's execution of nuclear scientist Shahram Amiri as an example. Amiri was allegedly a U.S. spy who was apparently alluded to in some of Clinton's leaked emails.

"Why aren't we talking about this, talking about the fact that she put our national security at risk?" McCain asked. "It's so egregious. This is real-life information about our CIA informants being murdered, and it's getting no coverage, except on this channel."
