Prominent Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill slammed Hillary Clinton during a fiery interview over the weekend, telling the former presidential nominee to “respect” those that voted for President Trump in the 2016 race for the White House.
McCaskill was speaking with MSNBC when she was asked to weigh-in on Clinton’s recent comments; where she claimed “white women” voted for Donald Trump because they were pressured to by their “husbands, bosses, and sons.”
“You have to have some respect for the voters here. I don’t like how Donald Trump behaves… but I’m also very respectful of the voters,” said the liberal lawmaker.
“There is an ad from your opponent, Josh Hawley, that features the words of Hillary Clinton, who you of course endorsed in 2016. He says ‘if you look at the map of United States, that’s all the red in the middle where Trump won.’ He’s quoting Hillary Clinton who also said, ‘so, I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, and moving forward.’ Were these comments from Hillary Clinton helpful to you?” asked the reporter.
“Probably not,” McCaskill fired-back. “It felt like she was criticizing Missouri voters. I would draw a line there. There are a lot of reasons they voted for Donald Trump.”

CLINTON GOES NUCLEAR: Hillary Says 'WHITE WOMEN' Were Forced to Vote for Trump by Their Husbands
Hillary Clinton took her international excuses tour to a new low over the weekend; telling a packed audience at a conference in India that ‘white women’ overwhelmingly voted for Donald Trump simply because their husbands forced them to.
The former Secretary of State was speaking to the India Today Conclave event on Saturday when she found yet another excuse for her 2016 defeat to Donald Trump; this time blaming ‘white women’ of both political parties who would have voted for her otherwise.
“[Democrats] do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton explained. “And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should,” said Clinton.
“What happened in my election, I was on the way to winning white women until former Director of the FBI Jim Comey dropped that ill-advised letter; then my numbers went down,” she added. “All of a sudden white women who were going to vote for me and standing up to the men in their lives were told she’s going to jail.”

BIAS ALERT: FBI Agents ‘PRESSURED’ to END Hillary Probe After Trump Nomination
Officials at the Department of Justice forked over hundreds of pages of previously unseen text messages to Congressional investigators over the weekend; revealing new details on how FBI agents were “pressured” to exonerate Hillary Clinton’s private email scandal after Donald Trump secured the GOP nomination in 2016.
New text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and bureau lawyer Lisa Page shed new light on the level of anti-Trump bias and corruption throughout the agency in the run-up to the US presidential election; suggesting the bureau was hoping to conclude Clinton’s probe within minutes of Donald Trump’s victory over GOP opponent Senator Ted Cruz.
“Holy s*** Cruz just dropped out of the race. It’s going to be a Clinton Trump race. Unbelievable,” wrote Page in May of 2016.
“I saw Trump won, figured it would be a bit,” responded Strzok. “Now the pressure really starts to finish MYE.”
The reference to “MYE” refers to ‘Mid-Year Exam,’ the FBI code name for the ongoing investigation of Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information and use of a private email server.
According to CBS News, the conversation was included in Sen. Ron Johnson’s scathing letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, where the Homeland Security Chairman demanded answers over anti-Trump bias at the agency ahead of the 2016 election.
