Claire McCaskill’s spin on gas prices and Jan 6 correlation could make a fake news host blush

Former Sen. Claire McCaskill displayed a distinct disconnect from reality by ridiculously claiming that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell wants high gas prices to distract from the Jan. 6 inquisition.

The Democratic senator-turned MSNBC analyst made the delusional allegation Thursday night as leftist media outlets gathered like vultures to pick apart the prime-time viewing of the Jan. 6 committee’s dead horse show. The spectacle was meant to convict former President Donald Trump and conservatives with no evidence, only an abiding hatred as fodder.

“I’m not sure what network he was watching, but I am 100 percent sure Mitch McConnell was tuned in. What’s he thinking tonight? He’s no friend of Donald Trump’s,” MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle stated, barely containing her disdain for the former president.

“No,” McCaskill replied. “He can’t stand Donald Trump.”

“Hates him,” Ruhle asserted as if either one of them personally knew for a fact that it was true.

“He’s worried about Donald Trump’s candidates winning Republican primaries which makes it harder for him to take back power,” claimed McCaskill.

“But you know what he’s thinking tonight? ‘Boy, I sure hope gas prices stay really high.’ That’s what he’s thinking,” she added.

“Because he really wants to distract the American public from the reality of what we saw tonight and how complicit they all are in allowing Trump to remain in this lock-grip position of power within their party,” she asserted.

“I think he’s hoping that the high gas prices and the inflationary pressures in our economy will be enough for people to forget and want to change out the Democrats,” the former senator charged.

This is not the only wild claim McCaskill has made. She also claimed that Republicans are creating inflation which could cost them the 2022 midterm elections.

This is the same woman who appeared on “Morning Joe” on Wednesday to discuss the Jan. 6 commission and her hoped-for downfall of Republicans while pondering dreamed-of gun control. The co-hosts predictably lapped it up.

“We showed pictures of quotes from people who have been friends of mine for 25 years saying absolutely egregious things about why AR-15s are needed to kill varmints and prairie dogs and feral pigs and raccoons,” MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said to McCaskill.

“And, you know, two things can be true at once, I guess. You can know them, you can like them, you can still be shocked by the things they say and the decisions they make. But I’m wondering as you now see January 6th and we’ve had quite some time to take it on board and try to process it, what do you think about somebody like Marco Rubio, who — or somebody like Lindsey Graham or people that you have worked with — I’m sure you had kind words with and could tell us nice things about them,” he continued.

“But, you know, Marco Rubio, when children are blown away in a second grade, third grade class, he uses that as an excuse to attack the NBA and their position on China. He doesn’t talk about guns. When January 6th comes up, he tries to undermine this, by talking about an ex-tv producer for ABC who may be affiliated with this. And Claire, I’m just sitting here thinking, when I was up there, this — this is a pretty open and closed case,” Scarborough went on.

“Republicans would gather together and Democrats could gather together. And they would say, this is B.S., except, they wouldn’t say B.S. And we’re going to chase down these clowns. We’re going to throw them in jail. And we’re going to make sure that never happens again. So just, on a personal level, Claire, tell us, how could your friends, how could your former colleagues be standing in the way of this and actually trying to actively undermine the pursuit of truth to figure out who tried to overturn a presidential election?” he disingenuously asked.

“The moment this thing turned, Joe, was the moment that the Republicans came out against a bipartisan commission, that was negotiated by a Republican, the purview of it, the ability to subpoena, all of it. It was going to have to be bipartisan,” McCaskill replied.

“When they decided that they didn’t want anything that really had that kind of credibility, that’s the moment they all folded. And they folded to the political pressure and power of Donald Trump and his followers. Now, last night wasn’t the best of nights for Donald Trump. He didn’t actually win very many places last night. Institutional Republicans won over his whack-a-doodle candidates,” she claimed.

“So maybe that might have more impact on my former colleagues than anything we can say or do. And that is, can Donald Trump’s grip, iron-fisted grip on the Republican party finally begin to loosen somewhat? I don’t know,” McCaskill added.
