Meghan McCain said Tuesday that she hoped for a conviction in the case of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.
Referring to Chauvin as a “cold-blooded murderer,” McCain argued that he deserved “jail or worse” for his role in the May 2020 death of George Floyd. (RELATED: ‘Congress Has A 61% Disapproval Rating For A Reason’: Meghan McCain Pans Dustup Between Jim Jordan, James Clyburn And Maxine Waters)
“Look, I haven’t been watching the entire trial,” McCain began, saying that the whole thing had been “so emotional and jarring” that she hadn’t felt the need to watch the trial in its entirety.
“I don’t need to see it because I’ve seen the George Floyd video and I don’t know how you find any individual anywhere that doesn’t think that man was murdered in cold blood in front of a group of people,” McCain continued.
She went on to paint a picture of just how long nine minutes could be, noting that a normal segment on ABC’s “The View” lasted seven minutes and Chauvin had knelt with his knee on George Floyd’s neck for that plus another two minutes.
“It’s an extremely long time to be suffocating a man. I hope they convict him and I hope Derek Chauvin goes to jail or worse for the rest of his life, and I hope this country can take a path forward to heal in all the ways that we need to,” McCain said. “As far as I’m concerned Derek Chauvin is a cold-blooded murderer that should rot in hell.”
