As Twitchy told you, Donald Trump couldn’t resist the urge to call out Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill for taking advantage of her private plane during what was supposed to be an RV tour:
Senator Claire McCaskill of the GREAT State of Missouri flew around in a luxurious private jet during her RV tour of the state. RV’s are not for her. People are really upset, so phony! Josh Hawley should win big, and has my full endorsement.

And frankly, it’s hard to blame him. McCaskill stepped in it bigly and was cruisin’ for a bruisin’. But for some strange reason, she still thinks she’s got a moral leg to stand on:
Claire McCaskill statement following POTUS tweet: “Paying on my own dime to visit more Missouri veterans is not something I’m going to apologize for.”

Bless her heart.
Oh, the spin on this one!! ? https://t.co/H4YJCHaO1H

No kidding. Nobody’s asking McCaskill to apologize for using a private jet; they’re calling her out for lying about it.
Yesterday: "The story is inaccurate."
Today: "I did it for the vets."
How generous. #MOsen

What about the whole deceiving thing

Trump didn't ask for an apology. He just pointed out that the Senator thinks of her own constituency as flyover country. Air Claire is just making it worse with that weak deflection
