McCaskill: Trump Used His ‘Fat Thumbs’ to Try to Intimidate Yovanovitch in Real Time

‘I’m so proud of her, and every woman in America who has fought in a male-dominated career should cheer for this woman today’

EXCERPT:

MCCASKILL: “I am so proud of this woman. She was the most senior, highest ranking woman diplomat in the State Department. Now, saying that is something, because the State Department historically over the last 30 years has not exactly been where you go to find all the powerful women in Washington. Usually it was a lot of men, a lot of white men. And the fact that she has served and she was in the way, this is who they had to get rid of. To complete their scam, they had to get rid of this woman. And so they set about to do it with an assist from Sean Hannity and ridiculous pretend journalism outlets they went after her. And the president now, not staying in the shadows for this bad act, but rather he’s out there today with his fat thumbs tweeting to try to intimidate her realtime. I’m so proud of her. And every woman in America who has fought in a male-dominated career should cheer for this woman today; her guts, her accomplishments and the fact that she’s the one that stood in their way."
