CNN's Cuomo on Sen. McSally: I Can't Believe People Would Vote For Her To Fill "McCain's Seat"

|

Chris Cuomo reacted to Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) telling CNN report Manu Raju that he is a "liberal hack" and expressed his disbelief that McSally filled "McCain's seat."

"If you people in Arizona, if you're looking for someone to replace McCain, OK, to take the seat that he held, McSally checks a big box, man, amazing military service, also a pilot," Cuomo said. "But, after today, and after this, she bears no resemblance to McCain's dignity, decency, discretion. I can't believe people would vote for her to fill McCain's seat."

McSally was appointed to her seat by the governor of Arizona following the resignation of placeholder Sen. Jon Kyl.

CHRIS CUOMO, CNN: There is no shame in Trump Co.'s game. No matter how shameful their words and deeds, they want you to know they don't care about anything but staying on message.

That's why today was such a perfect example with this new Senator. You can't see this enough.

MANU RAJU, CNN SENIOR CONGRESSIONAL CORRESPONDENT: Senator McSally, should the Senate consider new evidence as part of the impeachment trial?

SEN. MARTHA MCSALLY (R-AZ): Manu, you're a liberal hack. I'm not talking to you.

RAJU: You're not going to comment, Senator, about this?

MCSALLY: You're a liberal hack, buddy.

CUOMO: Senator McSally, veteran, amazing record of service, makes this stunt that much more pathetic. Did she really swap all that good faith for fealty to Trump, someone she hasn't even backed in the past?

We see the play now. This question was obvious, so was her dodge, so was the disrespect, it's all textbook Trump. It's more proof of what this is all about. And here's more proof, just from her, of playing from the Trump playbook. Forget about apologizing, she's trying to raise money off the mockery.

And look, if you people in Arizona, if you're looking for someone to replace McCain, OK, to take the seat that he held, McSally checks a big box, man, amazing military service, also a pilot.

But, after today, and after this, she bears no resemblance to McCain's dignity, decency, discretion. I can't believe people would vote for her to fill McCain's seat.

As obvious as her, and McConnell's, antics are, we get the reason. What can't Mc -- McSally really handle? What can't McConnell handle? The facts. In fact, there's a chance that this Senate will be the first to refuse to accept the facts delivered from the House, but they also may refuse to access the facts themselves through witnesses. How can you do your job then?
