Senator John McCain lashed out at the activists at the hearing:
I’ve been a member of this committee for many years, and I have never seen anything as disgraceful and outrageous and despicable as the last demonstration that just took place… You know, you’re going to have to shut up, or I’m going to have you arrested. If we can’t get the Capital Hill Police in here immediately… Get out of here, you low-life scum.
On Monday Night Senator John McCain told FOX News host Bill O’Reilly that the Code Pink protesters injured Charlotte Mailliard, 81 year-old wife of former Secretary of State George Shultz, during the melee.
Look, if it’s the normal stand up and get thrown out that’s one thing. They rushed forward. George Schultz who’s 94 had to stand between them. George Shultz’s wife, Mrs. Shultz, was banged into by these people which caused her pain and bruising of her leg. And, they were waving handcuffs that could actually physically harm them. It wasn’t just people standing up. If you look at that video it was a threat to them physically.
