“The View” co-host Meghan McCain took on Congressional leaders from both sides of the aisle on Thursday, imploring House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., And the Minority Leader of the House, Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. and not pathetic bureaucrats. ”
While discussing the ongoing struggle over which members of Congress would make up the commission to investigate the U.S. Capitol Riot on January 6, McCain criticized the two leaders for not working together to decide who should form the commission, warned Pelosi she had to start “getting things done” with Republicans, and predicted the California liberal would lose the presidency to McCarthy in the 2022 midterm election.
THE VIEW CO-ORGANIZERS CALL FOR IDENTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS TO USE SOCIAL MEDIA:
“Am I allowed to think this is all disgusting and bad?” Because that’s how I feel about it all, ”McCain said of the bickering across the aisle. “I think Nancy Pelosi should play ball with Kevin McCarthy to try to get people they can agree on on the committee. ”
McCain suggested that McCarthy should have named Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., On the commission himself, rather than Pelosi, as well as Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., A longtime critic of the former President Donald Trump. McCarthy withdrew his five GOP picks on Wednesday after Pelosi rejected two: Reps Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Jim Banks, R-Ind.
“I think that’s why Americans are so disgusted and overwhelmed with the vast majority of what’s going on on Capitol Hill, and you don’t have to believe me, there are statistics made by pollsters everywhere that show that Congress is at its lowest historical approval rate ever, ”McCain said. “And I think part of the problem is Nancy Pelosi had better start doing something with the other side, because her time in power is ending quickly and furiously. ”

McCain said she would bet her life that Republicans would take control of Congress in the 2022 midterm election and that McCarthy would become the new Speaker of the House.
“These two people have to learn to work together. Republicans and Democrats must learn to live together, ”she said. “We’re going to think about things in different ways when it comes to something as serious as the attack on Capitol Hill. ”

“Everyone on Capitol Hill, regardless of which party should be putting politics behind them, because it’s very serious, and no one wants it to happen again,” McCain added. “And they all have to start acting like adults and not like pathetic bureaucrats because the election is coming and these people will be eliminated. Maybe the generation before mine will leave them… Baby boomers keep doing nothing. , other generations to come will not. “
