Meghan McCain: McSally âDidnât Earnâ the Senate Seat She Inherited From My Dad
The Viewâs Meghan McCain took some shots at Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) on Friday after the lawmaker personally insulted a CNN reporter, pointing out that McSally didnât âearnâ the Senate seat she was appointed to after McCainâs father died.After CNN senior congressional correspondent Manu Raju attempted to ask McSally whether the Senate should consider new evidence in the impending impeachment trial, the Arizona senator snapped at Raju: âYouâre a liberal hackâIâm not talking to you.â McSally, meanwhile, quickly seized upon the instantly viral moment to fundraise for her tight election race before predictably appearing on Fox News to do a victory lap.Discussing the incident on Fridayâs broadcast of the ABC talk show, the View hosts noted that Rajuâs question was âvery reasonableâ and that the lawmaker also refused to answer it when asked by Fox Newsâ Laura Ingraham during a chummy Thursday night interview.Â View co-host Ana Navarro speculated that McSally likely lashed out at Raju because sheâs on âthin iceâ in her Senate race, prompting McCain to offer up even more background.âSheâs actually appointed,â the conservative host added. âShe didnât win that seat. I think thatâs important.âAfter losing her Senate bid to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema in 2018, McSally was appointed by Republican Gov. Doug Ducey to permanently fill the seat that was vacated by Meghanâs father, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), after his death. (McSally succeeded retired Sen. Jon Kyl, who accepted a temporary assignment to the seat immediately following McCain's death.)âShe didnât earn it in the traditional sense of votes,â McCain added. âItâs an extremely tight race. Arizona could turn blue, which wouldâpigs may start flying around the studio if that ends up happening, I never thought Iâd see the day.âMcCain went on to say that she believes that McSally is âplaying her cards completely wrongâ by fundraising off of the confrontation, adding that it is also a âthankless jobâ being a Capitol Hill reporter.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
