‘Can I Finish?’: Meghan McCain Clashes With ‘Rude’ Eric Bolling During Tense Debate on Jeb Bush

News

"I don't understand why you're being so rude!"

Meghan McCain clashed with "The Five" host Eric Bolling Friday afternoon during a tense discussion on the state of Jeb Bush's presidential campaign.

During the segment, McCain repeatedly tried to share her opinion as the "only person that has been on a campaign that imploded and came back from the dead."

Eventually, she was able to offer her thoughts, arguing that what Bush needs to do is "clean house" and hire new staffers.

"It's their fault?" Bolling loudly interjected.

"Can I finish?" McCain shot back, becoming visibly frustrated when Bolling kept talking.

Co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle jumped in to stand up for McCain, telling Bolling that she had asked her during the break to share her perspective on this particular topic.

"I'm saying a lot of people in politics only care about being in a book ... and will sell out their candidates," McCain said. "I know this better than anyone else. Yes, Jeb Bush's messaging is completely off. He's a bad candidate, he's a bad campaigner, but I also believe he has bad people around him. If cleaned house and found people that believed in him, I am living proof, that can turn around a campaign."

"And you were telling me that they are some of the same people that were on your father's campaign?" Guilfoyle asked.

"Yes! Some of the same people that were fired from my father's campaign!" McCain answered.

Bolling, not buying the argument that Bush's campaign staff was to fault for his campaign's downward spiral, continued to place blame on the candidate himself and dismissed McCain's argument.

"I don't understand why you're being so rude!" McCain told him. "I'm saying new blood on a campaign."

"I'm being rude?" Bolling asked. "I'm making a point about Jeb Bush. I'm not talking about your father."

McCain, again visibly frustrated, tried to reiterate her opinion, but eventually just gave up before the segment soon came to an end.
