Trump just launched an unprovoked and disgustingly hypocritical attack on Sen. Claire McCaskill

This afternoon, President Trump took to Twitter to slam Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) in a cheap attack that caused many people to rip their hair out in frustration and incredulity at the shameless hypocrisy of it all.

The president slammed McCaskill for using a private jet to fly around the state while she was supposedly conducting a tour by recreational vehicle. McCaskill admitted to sneaking out of the RV on to her plane for at least one of the three-day journey.

“I added some stops with the use of the plane, but I was on the RV so much that the broken drawer drove me crazy. I even lost an iPad around a corner on the RV…I spent two-plus days on the RV. Anybody could have followed me. They could have seen when I got off the RV and when I went and got on the airplane” said McCaskill to POLITICO before dismissing it as “election-year silliness.”

While no, it’s not very good optics for a millionaire to be caught fudging her attempt to portray herself as “in touch” with the common man and there is a discussion to be had on the outrageous wealth that most members of Congress currently hold, Donald Trump is the last person to be making this kind of criticism.

If you’ll recall, Donald Trump spent the entire 2016 election campaign on his private jet as flew around the country, both boasting about his billions and pretending to be an ally of the working class; FOX News even published a glowing article about how his fleet of a Boeing 757, a Cessna Citation X, and three helicopters were a huge advantage for him on the campaign trail.
