During an episode of “The View” on Thursday, the co-hosts discussed Pelosi’s recent decision to deny Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Jim Banks (R-Ind.) the opportunity to serve on the select committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riot.
They also mentioned McCarthy’s decision to pull all of his other picks in response to Pelosi’s move.
When asked for her opinion on the matter, McCain asked, “Am I allowed to think all of this is gross and bad?”
She suggested Pelosi should be “playing ball” with McCarthy to try and get those they both agree on on the committee. McCain also thinks McCarthy “in good faith” should have put someone who was less “MAGA” on the committee.

"I think they're all bad. I think this is why Americans are so disgusted and overwhelmed with the vast majority of what happens on Capitol Hill."

McCain continued, “I think they’re all bad. I think this is why Americans are so disgusted and overwhelmed with the vast majority of what happens on Capitol Hill.”
Urging Pelosi and McCarthy to “work together,” McCain explained, “Republicans and Democrats have to learn to live together.”
She argued both parties need to be “putting politics behind them” and “no one wants anything” like January 6 to happen again.
“They all need to start acting like adults and not like pathetic bureaucrats,” McCain said. “Elections come and these people will be voted out. Maybe the generation before mine will let these people and these boomers just continue to get nothing done, but I promise you, other generations coming up will not.”
Pelosi vowed during a press conference on Thursday to not allow “their antics stand in the way” of the investigation.
