While campaigning in Arizona on Wednesday, President Donald Trump gratuitously humiliated a vulnerable ally who is desperately trying to keep her Senate seat.
He spoke first at a large rally of supporters, but he realized that Republican Sen. Martha McSally should get the opportunity to speak as well, given that she’s underwater in her fight against Democrat Mark Kelly.
“Just come up fast. Fast, fast,” he said. “Come on. Quick. You got one minute! One minute, Martha! They don’t want to hear this, Martha. Come on. Let’s go. Quick, quick, quick. Come on.”
Many noted how embarrassing Trump’s treatment of McSally was.
“He’s calling her like a dog, and then she scampers to him, it’s one of the most humiliating things i have ever seen in politics,” said New York Magazine’s Jonathan Chait.
“Trump regularly tosses shade at Martha McSally in Arizona,” said Vox’s Aaron Rupar. “He doesn’t really seem to respect her and has long been resigned to her losing.”
Of course, Trump has a history of mistreating women, but one might expect a sitting Senator to demand more respect.
But let’s be honest, McSally is most certainly going to get her ass handed to her by Mark Kelly no matter how Trump treats her.
