On Thursday, Meghan McCain put Adam Schiff on the grill and lit him up over his opening statement at the Senate impeachment trial.
To Meghan, the whole thing was a performance.
In a turn poised to surprise you not at all, Sunny Hostin thought Adam did an excellent job — he laid out a compelling case.
Alien Meghan responded:
“I think, as usual, I always feel like I live on a different planet than everyone that works on this show. Because when I saw Adam Schiff, I actually thought that he seemed very performative and that he’s clearly trying to –”
Joy was all, “Clearly what?”
Meghan went on:
“Performative. At the end of his speech, Cory Booker, Joe Manchin, Tim Scott, and Ben Sasse were all walking around in the chamber because they were bored or wanted to leave, and I think there’s just a huge disconnect in the way liberals view this and the way conservatives view this.”
Is there really a difference in the way they view it, or is there only a difference in who’s being honest about it?
Either way, if Meghan — who despises Trump like it’s goin’ outta style (here) — thinks the whole thing looks absurd, that’s saying a lot.
To McCain, nothing anyone says is going to make a bit of difference anyway. This is partisan and ideological warfare, and — some might say — it has very little to do with what the President did or didn’t do:
“This isn’t making a big impact on me one way or the other and I always do this metaphor wrong. The cast is die or the die is cast. And I don’t think this is going to make that much difference. I think if you’re a liberal, you think what you guys think. I think if you’re a conservative, you think — like me — it’s performance art.”
Joy blew me away here; she admitted, “It’s possible.”
As for Meghan’s characterization, “performance” isn’t a bad way to go, regarding the entire impeachment move.
Other words that could give it a run for its money: transparent, embarrassing, pitiful.
This is politics, after all.
Feel free to add to the list.
Meanwhile, Sunny has some words to employ in use of describing yesterday’s Dem performa– I mean, offering: “incredible job” and “uniform excellence.”
