"The View" co-host Meghan McCain slammed the "performance art" of House Intelligence Committee chairman and leading House manager Adam Schiff, D-Calif., during the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, suggesting Schiff's dramatics are meant to indicate future political ambitions.
After Schiff received praise by her daytime co-hosts, McCain began by expressing she feels like she "lives on a different planet" by not being enthralled by his opening arguments.
"When I saw Adam Schiff, I thought he seemed pretty performative ... and that he's clearly trying to take over for Dianne Feinstein at some point," McCain said, referring to the California senator. "I wouldn't be surprised if he runs for her seat. She's the oldest member of the Senate."
McCain then pointed out the "huge disconnect" between how liberals and conservatives view the impeachment trial.
"This isn't making a big impact on me one way or the other," McCain continued. "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."
"It's possible," co-host Joy Behar conceded.
McCain then knocked Schiff for saying that Trump's conduct "cannot be decided at the ballot box" since it's uncertain that "the vote will be fairly won."
"Why are you even bringing this election to this investigation when you're talking about a phone call -- to me, the election right now has nothing to do with it," McCain added.
