McSally slams reporter as ‘liberal hack,’ and Trump 2020 offers fundraising boost

Senator Martha McSally was overheard this week calling a reporter a "liberal hack" after he asked her a question about considering new evidence in the impeachment trial this week.

Within an hour of the video hitting Twitter, Politico's Kyle Cheney noted, McSally's campaign had reserved the domain name - prime real estate.

"Manu, you're a liberal hack, I'm not talking to you", McSally said.

CNN's Manu Raju, a familiar face on Capitol Hill, tried to grab a response from McSally, who's up for re-election in the increasingly purple state of Arizona, about the upcoming Senate impeachment trial of President Trump.

However, McSally did not "speak the truth", and the motivation behind her insult was called into question after she began to fundraise off of the viral exchange. Raju claimed McSally "lashed out" at him.

"I said it again, actually, as I went in. They so can't stand the president, and they run around trying to chase Republicans and ask trapping questions", McSally said. I'm a fighter pilot, you know.

On the Democratic side, the leading candidate is former astronaut turned gun-control activist Mark Kelly, who has consistently outraised McSally since entering the race past year.

"You're a liberal hack", McSally repeated. The trial now kicks off as more details about the Rudy Giuliani clown show are trickling out into the public and the Government Accountability Office has issued a legal opinion that Trump's Ukraine aid delay violated federal law.

"If they did the right thing, she would personally call you and say "I'm sorry" - it was an bad thing she did", Blitzer said. "Walk us through what was going through your mind at that time". She faces one declared primary opponent in businessman Daniel McCarthy, with others threatening to enter the race.

"Kudos to Martha McSally!" tweeted Mark Levin, a pro-Trump broadcaster and frequent Fox News Channel presence.
