“The View” co-host Meghan McCain changed the subject from Arizona’s Republican senator rudely rejecting a reporter to the clothing worn by the state’s Democratic senator.
Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) called CNN’s Manu Raju a “liberal hack” after he asked her about new impeachment evidence, and McCain made clear she hadn’t been elected to her seat.
“She’s actually appointed, she didn’t win that seat,” McCain said. “I think that’s important.”
“She didn’t earn it in the traditional sense of votes, it’s an extremely tight race,” she added. “Arizona could turn blue which would — pigs may start flying around the studio if that ends up happening. She is fundraising off of this with Trump supporters but unfortunately there’s a lot of states like Utah, Arizona (and) Nevada that I think people just assume are going to be full red forever, and it’s not. It’s very independent and fringy, and I think there’s a reason why it has such a long history within Arizona with people like Barry Goldwater. I think she’s playing her cards completely wrong.”
Then she abruptly changed the subject to her home state’s other senator.
“You know who’s playing it completely right? My other senator, Kyrsten Sinema, with her fashion choices on the floor of the Senate,” McCain said, and producers were ready with a photo of the lawmaker. “Look at that, that’s my senator — look at that outfit. I love everything she’s doing. She’s very independent. She’s a Democrat but she’s very — she votes on the right, as well, and (McSally) should take more pages from Kyrsten Sinema, as far as I’m concerned.”
How Trump’s minions poisoned Washington
What would you do if Trump defender and Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight called you, mistakenly believing you were Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, and shared his ideas to help President Trump win re-election? Would you let him talk or inform him he had the wrong number? How would you react if Rudy Giuliani suddenly texted you, claiming he was being held hostage on an airplane by Robert Mueller, who wouldn't release him until he ratted out Trump? Would you laugh it off or write about it?

Americans who believe Trump’s spin on coronavirus will get ‘what they deserve’: former Ebola Czar
President Donald Trump's credibility deficit is coming into play as Americans wonder whether to listen to his debunked claims or facts from medical experts on the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic.
Former U.S. Ebola response coordinator Ron Klain, who was known as the "Ebola Czar," was interviewed Friday evening by Ali Velshi on MSNBC's "The Last Word."
Klain said the administration was facing a "crisis of both confidence and competence."
"On the confidence side, anyone who believes what Donald Trump says kind of gets what they deserve at this stage of the game," he argued. "But the problem is, the administration has silenced the people we can trust."
