MSNBC’s McCaskill: McConnell Wants Inflation to Stay High to Distract From Jan 6

Political News

During MSNBC’s recap of Thursday night’s hyper-partisan January 6 committee hearings, The 11th Hour host Stephanie Ruhle brought on failed former Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill, to get her take on the fallout from the publicity stunt the Democrats put on. 

After the duo gushed over the show the committee put on, the discussion turned to how the hearings will play politically. 

Ruhle turned to McCaskill and asked about Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. “Clare, I’m not sure what network he was watching, but I’m 100 percent sure Mitch McConnell was tuned in” Ruhle claimed before asking “what’s he thinking tonight? He’s no friend of Donald Trump’s.” 

McCaskill insisted “he can’t stand Donald Trump.” She huffed that “he’s worried about Donald Trump’s candidates winning Republican primaries, which makes it harder for him to take back power.”

Proving how completely out of touch she is with the priorities of average Americans, she foolishly claimed McConnell is thinking “I sure hope gas prices stay really high.” She continued her delusional analysis: 

That’s what he’s thinking. Because he really wants to distract the American public from the reality of what we saw tonight. And how complicit they all are in allowing Trump to remain in this lock grip position of power within their party. And I think he’s hoping that the high gas prices, and the inflationary pressures on our economy, will be enough to make people forget, and just vote to change out the Democrats.

Ruhle jumped in to claim “that’s sick” to which McCaskill shrugged it off as “politics.” 

McCaskill was asked what she thought her fellow Missourians thought about the hearings tonight and if they were watching. 

Her answer shows her disdain for her fellow citizens and illustrates why she was thrown out of office: “my state has become very, very “Trumped”. It is a very, he’s a very popular guy in Missouri.”   

She bitterly sneered that “most of them were not watching. And most of them would tell you, with a straight face, that the election was stolen and Donald Trump won it.” 

No wonder she was thrown out of office in 2018 which was an otherwise good political year for Democrats. She fits right in with the miscreants at MSNBC.

STEPHANIE RUHLE: Clare, I’m not sure what network he was watching, but I’m 100 percent sure Mitch McConnell was tuned in. What’s he thinking tonight? He’s no friend of Donald Trump’s. 

CLAIRE MCCASKILL: No, he can’t stand Donald Trump. 

RUHLE: Hates him. 

MCCASKILL: And he’s worried about Donald Trump’s candidates winning Republican primaries, which makes it harder for him to take back power. But you know what he’s thinking tonight? Boy, I sure hope gas prices stay really high. That’s what he’s thinking. Because he really wants to distract the American public from the reality of what we saw tonight. And how complicit they all are in allowing Trump to remain in this lock grip position of power within their party. And I think he’s hoping that the high gas prices, and the inflationary pressures on our economy, will be enough to make people forget, and just vote to change out the Democrats. 

RUHLE: That’s sick! That’s sick! 

MCCASKILL: Well, it’s politics. 

RUHLE: And do you think it’s successful? I know we’re out of time. Take me to Missouri. Take me to Missouri, that’s your state tonight. Not people who are hard red or hard blue. Take me to your average family in Missouri. Are they watching? 

MCCASKILL: Well, first of all, no. Most of them aren’t. Because my state has become very, very “Trumped”. It is a very, he’s a very popular guy in Missouri. The vast majority of Republicans call themselves Trump Republicans in Missouri. So most of them were not watching. And most of them would tell you, with a straight face, that the election was stolen and Donald Trump won it.
