With a proliferation of senators or wannabes with Mc attached to their surnames, it might be easy to mistake Arizona for a Gaelic clan. Unlike the close-knit clans, however, the breed that have taken up residence in the political realm of the saguaro laden state are far from buddies.
The dramatic and easily offended Mega McCain, daughter of the unreliable, hot-tempered and profane former senator with the same last name, is sounding a great deal like dear old dad who choreographed his own three funerals, including pointedly disinviting President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania.
Mega, whose specialty is crassness, is now taking on AZ Sen. Martha McSally, a former Air Force officer and combat fighter pilot, who has been in life or death battles while Mega was busy getting tattooed. Appearing on Friday’s broadcast of ‘The View,’ Mega ripped into Sen. McSally, a former two term member of congress saying, McSally “didn’t earn” her appointment to the seat formerly held by Sen. John McCain.
Mega McCain was commenting on Sen. McSally calling CNN congressional correspondent Manu Raju a “liberal hack,” in response to his impertinent question about President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.
In 2016, the McCain family let it be known that their votes would not be cast for Donald Trump, a political novice — who achieved what John McCain built his career on trying to attain, though he spectacularly failed. The take away? They voted for “rockstar” Hillary Clinton.
Mega went on to deride McSally, saying:
“And she does have an extremely tight race. Arizona could turn blue, which I mean — pigs may start flying around the studio if that ends up happening — I never thought I’d see the day. But she is fundraising off of this with Trump supporters. But unfortunately, there’s a lot of states like Utah, like Arizona, like Nevada, that I think people just assume are going to be full red forever, and it’s not. It’s very independent and fringy, and I think there’s a reason why it has such a long history, especially in Arizona, with people like Barry Goldwater in place.”
Political wizard Mega McCain added, “I actually think she’s playing her cards completely wrong. One hundred percent I don’t think this is the right way to do it, but do you know who’s playing it completely right?
My other senator, Kyrsten Sinema, with her fashion choices on the Congressional floor. I think we have it. Look at her, that’s my other senator. Look at that outfit. I love everything she’s doing. She’s very independent. She’s a Democrat, but she’s like very — she votes on the right as well, and I think she (McSally) should take more pages from Kyrsten Sinema.”
Mega is influenced by fashion rather than policy, dismissing Kyrsten Sinema’s forays into Communism and vulgar rants before reconfiguring herself as a Prada wearing Democrat. She obviously knows little about Barry Goldwater, who definitely wasn’t the conservative we’ve been led to believe.
In deriding Martha McSally, Mega McCain uses the same terminology used by the clearly not-ready-for-prime-time candidate, Daniel McCarthy. Watch this ‘Sunday Square Off’ interview on an empty stomach. McCarthy is intent on aiding Mark Kelly aka “Mr. Gabby Giffords” in turning over both of Arizona’s senate seats to the Dems. And if Kelly dresses up to her standards, that should be enough to make Mega happy.
