Nasty! Claire McCaskill Paints GOP Sen. Perdue as Pathetic Trump Lackey

Having lost her Senate seat, has Democrat Claire McCaskill become embittered toward Senate Republicans?

Now an MSNBC analyst, McCaskill took an ugly shot at Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) during the 5:00 p.m. Eastern hour of MSNBC’s live impeachment coverage Friday, painting him as a pathetic Trump lackey. Asked by Nicolle Wallace as to how tied Republican senators are to the White House, McCaskill said:

“You’ve got everything from David Perdue to Susan Collins. David Perdue, you know, if Trump said, you know, I want you to come tell me a bad joke every five minutes for five days, David Perdue would say, is it okay if I don’t sleep? You know, so, he is totally captured by Donald Trump, and there’s others like him.”


That’s the kind of thing that, had she not been beaten in her 2018 re-election bid and was still serving in the Senate, might have earned McCaskill sanctions under Senate Rule 19. But now that she’s a private citizen, McCaskill is free to spill bile on her erstwhile colleagues, revealing her true character. 

Note: you can hear notorious Trump-hater Nicolle Wallace snorting in amusement as McCaskill vilifies Perdue.
