McCaskill on Trump: ‘Very American’ to Be ‘Distracted By the Shiny Object’

Sunday on MSNBC, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said of the success of Donald Trump’s Republican candidacy will fade because “it’s very American to be distracted by the shiny object.”

McCaskill said, “It’s almost like a demolition derby. Everyone goes, why would you watch it? But you can’t look away. That’s what it reminds me of. It’s very American for us to be distracted by the shiny object. That’s what this is. People need to keep this in context. His unfavorables are much higher than Hillary Clinton’s. He is only getting—depending on the poll—about 25 percent of Republican voters. That means 75 percent of them don’t want him. By the time this settles out, Americans will decide to elect the person president that shows the most strength in stability, not ability to be bombastic and with bluff and bluster.”
