Meghan McCain took Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) to task over his “history of misrepresenting” statements that have emerged from private White House meetings, but Durbin stuck to his guns and refused to address “The View” co-host’s accusations.

What did she say?

During a discussion about President Donald Trump’s alleged comments about “s***hole countries” — which reportedly took place last week during an immigration meeting — McCain didn’t hold back.

“You have a history of misrepresenting statements from private White House meetings,” McCain began. “And some say you’ve actually done more harm than good to the DACA deal by revealing what Trump said in his private meeting. Do you think that’s true?”

Changing the topic, Durbin — who was piped in from Washington, D.C. — responded, “Well, I can tell you, what you hear behind me are the voices of democracy. Demonstrators who are on Capitol Hill, willing to be arrested in a nonviolent way for the Dream Act. I believe that the strength behind this, the energy behind this movement to help these Dreamers get protected.”

“You’re trying to get support with Republicans, as well; there’s a lot more support with Democrats then there are Republicans on DACA, which is why Democrats were trying to speak with President Trump, and I think that’s the argument that you’ve possibly done more harm than good with Republicans,” McCain broke in.

So what was it she might’ve been talking about?

Durbin, who was at the meeting where Trump reportedly made the comment about “s***hole countries,” found himself under fire when Republican Sen. David Perdue (Ga.) said that Durbin mischaracterized the president’s quotes.

Perdue (R-Ga.) told ABC News’ “This Week” on Sunday that Durbin’s account was a “total misrepresentation” of what Trump reportedly said, and insisted that Trump “did not use that word.”

He also told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos that it isn’t the first time Durbin’s done such a thing.

“I’m saying that this is a gross misrepresentation, it’s not the first time Sen. Durbin has done it, and it is not productive to solving the problem that we have at hand,” Perdue said.

One such instance reportedly occurred in 2013 when Durbin described an incident that former President Barack Obama’s press secretary, Jay Carney, said did not occur.

Durbin made claims that a House Republican leader allegedly told Obama during a meeting “I cannot even stand to look at you.”

Carney said it never happened.

Durbin is a consummate liar, but note how his pronouncements are treated by the MSM as revealed truth. He came out of that meeting, misrepresented what really happened, and his poisonous claims were spread far and wide by the MSM. No need for verification, no other side to the story. One more example of fake news and he MSM's collusion with the Democrats.
