McCaskill went on to warn the 29-year-old from Queens that “rhetoric is cheap” and “getting results is a lot harder”:
Claire McCaskill on Dems/Ocasio-Cortez: "The rhetoric is cheap. Getting results is a lot harder."
On what GOP senators privately say about Trump: "The guy is nuts, he doesn't have a grasp of the issues, he's making rash decisions."

the part of this interview where mccaskill talks about ocasio-cortez being out of touch w the white working class makes HER seem like the out of touch one. i assure you there‘s plenty of white working class people who’d support universal healthcare, UBI, etc (see sanders, bernie) https://t.co/Mbg1kapPbf
