McCaskill: Trump Is ‘Threatened’ by Strong, Smart Women — ‘Obvious to Most Women’

Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” network political commentator former Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said President Donald Trump attacked women like Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) because he was “threatened by women who are strong and smart.”

She added that it was “obvious to most women in the country.”

McCaskill said, “Yeah, you know, let me just say, I’ve got a little bit of experience with this. Having gone through a political career for decades, there is one common theme to men who irrationally attack women in positions of power. And what is always true is they are massively insecure. They are really threatened by women who are strong and smart. and there is one commonality that all the women he has, that he’s attacked have they are strong, and they are smart, and they have overcome.”

She continued, “You know, he was given millions of dollars by his father. You know he was, you know, never really had to scratch and scrape and figure out how to achieve something when he wasn’t supposed to, quote/unquote. From bone spurs to, you know, getting in a good school to being given millions of dollars to be able to do his career, you compare and contrast that to a Governor Whitmer, or to a Nancy Pelosi or to Yamiche or to the other African-American reporter who he’s gone after in the briefing room, these are women who have had to fight and use their strength, and they are not afraid of him. And he really doesn’t do well with people who aren’t afraid of him.”

She added, “I think it’s pretty obvious to most women in the country. It’s not like we don’t get this. And that’s why if Donald Trump is not re-elected, it will be because the women of America have just had enough. We’ve just had enough.”
