EXCERPT:

McCASKILL: "I understand the point she was trying to make. But it felt like she was criticizing Missouri voters, and I would draw — talking about drawing a line, I would draw a line there. I have great respect for Missouri voters and there are a lot of reasons they voted for Donald Trump, some of which I completely understand. Frustration is a powerful motivator. And if you’ve played by the rules and worked hard all your life and you’re further behind this year than you were ten years ago, no wonder you want something completely different. So, I get that. So, no, it wasn’t helpful. I think it was wrong how she put it. I think it certainly is being taken out of context, which, you know, but she knows things that you say are taken out of context. So, for those of us that are in states that Trump won, we would really appreciate if she would be more careful and show respect to every American voter and not just the ones who voted for her."
