Meghan McCain minced no words on her appearance as a panelist on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
As reported by Variety, upon being given a warm welcome by host Chuck Todd who even referred to McCain’s late father, John McCain, stating that “It’s good to have a McCain back on ‘Meet the Press,'” McCain wasted no time before giving her critical opinion of President Joe Biden. “President Biden ran on being a moderate, as you said. He ran and won with the help of independent centrists, Trump-weary Republicans, and he is not governing as one,” McCain claimed. “The Build Back Better agenda is the most progressive modern agenda of all time, up to $5 trillion, and it’s not polling well. So I think I’m just confused as to why they’re doubling down on something that is cratering in the polls right now.” It should be noted, however, that per Navigator Research, Biden’s Build Back Better economic plan has garnered an approval rating of 66%.
Along with voicing her displeasure at President Biden’s time in office, she also defended centrist Democratic Senators Kyrsten Sinema (Arizona) and Joe Manchin III (West Virginia.) “If it’s not [Manchin], it’s going to be a Republican,” she sweepingly declared about the West Virginia senator.
One thing’s for sure: whether you love her or hate her, the decision to feature her almost always proves to be a topic of conversation!
