Outgoing Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Thursday that many of her Republican colleagues are not nearly as deferential to President Donald Trump in private as they are in public.
When asked on the show what words GOP senators use to describe the president in private, McCaskill didn’t hesitate to say that they call him both “nuts” and “weak” when he’s not around.
She also get that GOP lawmakers think that Trump “doesn’t really understand government” and “doesn’t care to understand anything complicated” because he has “no intellectual curiosity.”
She then predicted that these Republicans would live to regret keeping silent about their concerns about Trump’s total lack of fitness for the presidency.
“I believe history will judge, down the line, those members of the Republican Party who have silently looked down and think they can just wait this out — without even speaking out about the level of lying that goes on,” she said. “Think about this — the president this morning tweeted that there’s nothing wrong with paying off a porn star that you had an affair with in order to win the presidency… That’s what he basically said! I mean, that’s crazy!”

Here is how Republicans are reacting when confronted with the new rape allegation against Trump

Journalist E. Jean Carroll detailed her account of Trump raping her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room more than two decades ago in an article, in her new book, and in TV interviews. New York Magazine reported that it contacted two of her friends who confirmed that she told them about the assault shortly after it happened.
‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant
President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.
“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.
The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:
Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw
