McCaskill Throws Liberal Base Under the Bus, Calls ‘Abolish ICE’ Movement ‘Dumb’

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) has weighed in on the movement dominating the liberal base of the Democratic Party in 2018, calling “abolish ICE” “dumb” on Monday.

St. Louis Public Radio‘s Jo Mannies tweeted:

McCaskill’s bold statement betrays the difficult position she’s put in on the liberal calls to “abolish ICE” taking over the minority party right now. Side with Republicans in opposing “abolish ICE,” and McCaskill risks alienating her liberal base in Missouri (and her “resistance” base around the country). Side with “abolish ICE,” and McCaskill has a tougher time winning a red-state Senate seat in 2018.

It’s not the first time McCaskill has thrown her ideological ilk under the bus. In May, she told The Washington Post that the Democratic Party’s plan for 2018 is “totally not important to me.”
