Former Senator Lets Loose on 'This Little Small Man' Trump After RNC Violates the Hatch Act--and She Has No F***s to Give
At the end of the Republican National Convention's second night on Tuesday, First Lady Melania Trump delivered a nearly 30 minute speech to a crowd assembled in the newly-renovated Rose Garden.
While some outlets were chastised for saying the speech "restored a sense of normalcy," former Senator and current MSNBC contributor Claire McCaskill didn't hold back when it came to her thoughts about the convention and President Donald Trump.
“I am furious at this little, small man trashing the people's house with his narcissism and his ego. Using those people that were becoming American citizens as props." Claire McCaskill says, discussing the naturalization ceremony at the #RNC2020. pic.twitter.com/Zv4QoXgYxx

MSNBC anchor Brian Williams asked McCaskill for her thoughts on the second night, which included Trump performing official executive duties such as presidential pardons and naturalization ceremonies, introducing a host of ethical issues.
"I have to take a deep breath here because I'm hopping mad. I'm just furious. I am furious at this little small man trashing the people's house with his narcissism and his ego. Using those people that were becoming American citizens as props. And by the way, he's the most anti-immigrant President in the history of our country."
She wasn't done.
McCaskill conceded that Melania Trump issued rare condolences to the 180+ thousand people who lost their lives due to the viral outbreak that happened under Trump's watch.
"Let's be real about whether or not [Melania Trump] is really gonna help him with women in the suburbs. They know what the deal is here. They've all defended their husbands publicly. This is a woman whose husband had to pay court costs this week because he paid off a porn star, because he was having sex behind her back with a porn star right after she gave birth to their son. Give me a break. I am done with this guy."
McCaskill was alluding to earlier this week when a judge ordered Trump to pay $44 thousand to adult film actor Stormy Daniels, whom Trump's campaign paid to keep silent about an alleged affair with Trump in the early 2000s.
People shared McCaskill's outrage.
Just watched Claire McCaskill's response to Brian Williams question of what she thought of the GOP convention speeches tonight. I couldn't agree more!

If you're a non-Trumper, you will feel better hearing Claire McCaskill express what we've all been feeling for four years.
Biden should hire her to do an ad based on this. https://t.co/Oh6NBsRaQn

Like McCaskill, few people withheld their thoughts about the Republican National Convention.
It's not a Republican Convention. It's a fascist fest.

Good morning to everyone except every single person involved with the Republican National Convention

During the Republican Convention, countless crimes have been intentionally committed in the open. There's enough evidence to shut down this crime network, charge them with treason, put them all on trial.
It's obvious to anyone paying attention. MSM isn't reporting it this way.
