Missouri Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill is busy shoring up her two-faced credentials inside and outside the Swamp. Recently, the embattled “moderate” called Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (IND-VT) “crazy Democrats,” conveniently ignoring her history of repeatedly taking their political fund-raising cash to save her own career. McCaskill went on Fox News to try and walk back her campaign ad, but the damage was already done. She also pointed out that she disagrees with Bernie Sanders “on a bunch of stuff.” It’s more evidence that the Democratic caucus is splintering under electoral pressure.

Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill floated the names of Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders when talking about “crazy Democrats”.
But that’s despite her history of accepting their PAC money or asking for support.
The vulnerable senator, who is facing a tough challenge from Republican state Attorney General Josh Hawley, tried to distance herself from the progressive side of the Democratic Party in a last-ditch attempt to save her political career amid the upcoming election.
McCaskill mentioned Warren and Sanders after being asked about her recent ad declaring her “not one of those crazy Democrats” that prompted questions who is she referring to.
“I would not call my colleagues crazy, but Elizabeth Warren sure went after me when I advocated tooling back some of the regulations for small banks and credit unions,” McCaskill told Fox News on Monday, also pointing out that she disagrees with Sanders “on a bunch of stuff.”
