CBS’s Margaret Brennan questioned McDaniel on “Face The Nation” about the Trump campaign’s plans for any in-person fundraisers leading up to the election and whether coronavirus restrictions would be implemented. 

McDaniel responded by saying, “We’re going to do everything that we need to do, but let’s go back to the issue Margaret. You have a candidate running for president right now… doing an absolute power grab.”

“Joe Biden is running on the biggest power grab in history, and you guys want to talk about fundraising protocols?” she asked.

“I want to ask what the president ‘s doing in the next few days because you are 23 days from an election,” Brennan said.

McDaniel simultaneously said, “[Biden's] going to say he’s gonna stack the Supreme Court, get rid of the filibuster and he’s being given a free pass.”

“This should be all the media’s focused on,” she added. “I understand you don’t like Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpGiuliani goes off on Fox Business host after she compares him to Christopher Steele Trump looks to shore up support in Nebraska NYT: Trump had 7 million in debt mostly tied to Chicago project forgiven MORE. I understand [you] don’t like Republicans. You have a Democrat running on the biggest power grab – the absolute biggest power grab in the history of our country and reshaping the United States of America  and not answering the question. That’s all we should be talking about.”

Biden has repeatedly avoided answering questions about whether he would pack the Supreme Court as president if Republicans confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett as a justice before the election. 

When Brennan said on Sunday, “I think you answered the question 'yes' in resuming in-person fundraisers with the president,” the RNC chairwoman responded “Who cares?”

“Who cares if we have fundraisers when you have a candidate running to upend … checks and balances in the third branch of government,” she added.
