"The View" co-host Meghan McCain praised presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) Thursday for the way she attacked fellow presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg during Wednesday night's Democratic primary debate in Las Vegas.

McCain has been critical of Bloomberg in the days since he announced his campaign.

What are the details?

Warren appeared via video livestream on Thursday's broadcast, where she discussed Wednesday night's presidential debate in Las Vegas.

"Hello, Senator, this is Meghan," McCain said. "First of all, congratulations last night. I really enjoyed watching you. I really enjoyed watching you rip out Mayor Bloomberg's jugular — I really did."

Warren smiled and responded, "So nice."

Warren opened the Democratic debate with a scathing attack on Bloomberg.

"I'd like to talk about who we're running against," Warren said during her debate opener. "A billionaire who calls women 'fat broads' and 'horse-faced lesbians!' And no, I'm not talking about Donald Trump, I'm talking about Mayor Bloomberg! Democrats are not going to win if we have a nominee who has a history of hiding his tax returns, of harassing women, and of supporting racist policies like red-lining and stop and frisk."

Warren said that she would openly support any Democratic nominee, but warned that Democrats are taking a "huge risk" if they opt to "substitute one arrogant billionaire for another."

During Thursday's show, McCain continued, "I take great offense at the idea that you've been running for president ... and you should just drop out because he has billions of dollars. The time that Trump came up last night was when you compared him to saying that Democrats aren't going to win the nomination if they have a history of harassing women.

"I think this is an incredibly strong point," she insisted. "[Bloomberg] has a history of both misogynistic and racially charged comments over a long period of time, and I believe the media has given him a huge pass on this."

How did Warren respond?

Warren replied, “You know, I think you're asking the question, Meghan: Why [does the media] always seem to give the billionaires extra consideration?"

She added, “Because I think that's what's happened here, but you know what I'll bet you he's doing right now? I'll bet he's reaching in his pocket and spending $100 million more on advertising to try to erase everyone's memory of what happened last night."

Warren continued, pointing out that Democrats should never appoint a man or woman who "has a history of embracing racially outrageous practices like stop and frisk."

"[W]e should not have a nominee who has — we don't know how many times he's been charged with discrimination against women or with sexual harassment and has just shoveled some of his money in to cover it up," Warren added. "Too many men have gotten away with that for far too long and it stops now."
