From Raw Story:
Meghan McCain has made a name for herself because she is the daughter of Senator John McCain from Arizona, and she’s blonde. This distinction (?) led to a job as the token conservative on The View talk show. She replaced the other blonde Republican on that show who is now on Fox News, her name escapes me.
Anyway. Meghan McCain is confident and poised, but clearly stepped out of her league today when she thought she could intelligently spar with Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), possibly the most brilliant Representative in the House. She thinks (cough) that the Russia investigation is “overhyped.” Here’s what happened:
“Hi Congressman, I think at this point in time it’s really difficult for me and many Americans to differentiate between what’s overhype and what isn’t,” McCain began. “You have said on more than one occasion that you’ve seen ample evidence of the Trump campaign’s Russia collusion. Last month, you said you had more than circumstantial evidence of treasonous collusion with Russia.” “What specifically were you referring to and please be specific, because if it’s true I do believe Americans have a right to know, a year later, what that is,” McCain pressed.
Schiff responded in his humble and surgically precise way:
“Well I certainly said there was ample evidence of collusion, I’ve never used the word ‘treason,’ only Steve Bannon has used that word,” Schiff shot back. “But, if you look at the facts that are in the public domain, they’re pretty damning.”
Translation: no Meghan, you entitled twit. It’s appalling that someone like you is in a position of power, especially since you continually refuse to actually, you know, read what is easily accessible. Moreover, you lie and obfuscate to protect your soulless party rather than the American people. Why the other women on The View don’t savage you regularly is a testament to their character.
