‘That will certainly get Donald Trump’s attention’: Claire McCaskill tries everything in her book to bait Trump

Sen. Claire McCaskill, D- Mo. went on a rampage against Donald Trump during an appearance on Fox News Sunday.

She said it as not President Obama and Hillary Clinton, but rather Donald Trump and his “friend” Vladimir Putin that were responsible for the rise of the Islamic State.

“There’s a lot of reasons that ISIS rose up,” she told host Chris Wallace. “We couldn’t leave our troops in Iraq even if the president wanted to because the Parliament in Iraq was refusing to give them immunity.

“Now, Trump probably thinks the SOFA, the status of forces agreement, is a gilded couch at Mar-A-Lago. He probably doesn’t know what SOFA is. But that was a very relevant part of this. It was also important to realize that Assad, by what he did in his country, allowed ISIS to move into what was then Iraq — al Qaeda in Iraq into Syria and get strongholds and recruit. That was the work and support of Putin who is Trump’s best buddy. So, you can say Trump and his friend Putin are the founder of ISIS, which probably would be more accurate than calling out the commander-in-chief in that way,” she said.

Wallace was happy with her comment.

“That will certainly get Donald Trump’s attention,” he said.

You bet it will.
