Instead, McCain, whose agitation was turned up to 11 from the first second of the segment, spent a lot of time on speeches like this one:

There’s so much hypocrisy on the left with this, I’m sorry. Leonardo DiCaprio had 418 tons of CO2 last year. Every celebrity and person and advocate on the wanna change hearts and minds, stop lecturing Americans!


Yes, it’s true, the biggest issue with climate change is that rich celebrities fly planes. Joy Behar responded, quite sensibly, “Is Leo DiCaprio in office?” (He is not.)

McCain continued ranting. At one point, she shouted to the audience, “Please stop clapping so I can finish.” They were not clapping at anything she had said.
