During a discussion on Harris’ unpopularity in polls, McCain argued it was evident she “needed more media training” because of the tactical errors she had made since taking office, and that if she was up against DeSantis in the 2024 general election, he would “put her in the ground.”
“I think she stumbled when she was running for president. She dropped out before Iowa. She was a very early dropout. She wasn’t resonating with voters way before President Biden was elected,” McCain said in response to co-host Whoopi Goldberg asking if she thought Harris “stumbled coming out of the gate.”
McCain criticized the media’s tone in how outlets covered Harris’ leadership on the border crisis, specifically calling out the discrepancy in how they approached children being placed in “cages” while in border facilities under former President Trump versus the current administration.
