If you needed a reminder why the citizens of Missouri refused to re-elect the incompetent, intellectually limited Clair McCaskill, she provided it today. Here’s the headline from the NY Post:
I had to double-check that this was not a new piece of satire from the Babylon Bee. Nope. I looked at my calendar fearing it was April 1st and this was a lame attempt at macabre humor. Double no.
Here’s what she said:
Former Sen. Claire McCaskill said Friday that she believes last January’s Capitol riot was worse than the 2012 attack on US personnel in Benghazi.
“Joe I have one word: Benghazi. Benghazi had in the House alone six investigations,” the Missouri Democrat told MSNBC host Joe Scarborough. “If you compare and contrast, I don’t want to minimize the loss of life in Benghazi or the problems around the security of those locations, but lets compare and contrast those two events and which is more foundation shaking to our democracy.”
If you have been living in a cave or cannot remember what happened six months ago let me refresh your memory. Thousands of Trump supporters walked into the Capitol, many at the invitation of the U.S. Capitol Police. There was some shouting and there was some pushing and shoving. But the massive crowd was largely peaceful. The Trump supporters did not kill a soul. The Trump supporters did not use firearms or explosives. Little physical damage was done to the Capitol.
