McCaskill Throws Warren, MO State Senator Under the Bus in Last-Ditch Attempt to Win

Win or lose next Tuesday, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) may have some awkward conversations with colleagues and allies coming soon after Election Day.

In an interview with Fox News on Monday night, McCaskill strongly suggested she was thinking of Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) when she ran an ad last week criticizing “crazy Democrats.”

“Well, I would say this,” McCaskill replied. “I would not call my colleagues crazy, but Elizabeth Warren sure went after me when I advocated tooling back some of the regulations for small banks and credit unions.”

…McCaskill went on to float Sanders’ name, although she didn’t specify exactly why: “I certainly disagree with Bernie Sanders on a bunch of stuff, um, so I’m not afraid. So I don’t know those kinds of things which do separate me, I think, from some of the knee-jerk folks that just are against the president no matter what.”

She also referenced, without naming, state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, the woman who wrote a Facebook post calling for President Trump’s assassination.

As of Tuesday morning, Warren and Sanders had not responded to broadsides from their colleague McCaskill. Chappelle-Nadal did respond, though, suggesting that McCaskill is a white supremacist and calling her “Dixie Claire.”
