Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Missouri., is leaving office after 12 years in Washington. She joins MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' to discuss Democratic enthusiasm in her state, the kind of candidate Democrats need in 2020, and what some senators say about Trump behind his back.
SEN. CLAIRE MCCASKILL: Nuts, weak, doesn't really understand government, doesn't care to understand anything complicated, asks and says the most unbelievable things in meetings that clearly shows he doesn't understand the subject matter, no intellectual curiosity.
MIKE BARNICLE, MSNBC: Dangerous? Do they say dangerous?
MCCASKILL: I don't know that I've heard dangerous, but I will say this: I believe history will judge down the line those members of the Republican Party who have silently looked down and think they can just wait this out, without even speaking up about the level of lying that goes on. I mean, think about this. The president this morning tweeted there is nothing wrong with paying off a porn star that you had an affair with in order to win the presidency, right before the election.
That's what he basically said. That's crazy.
