Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) lost it and screamed liberal hack at CNN’s Manu Raju after he asked her about considering new impeachment evidence.

Here is Raju’s description of the exchange:
Sen. Martha McSally, a Republican facing a difficult election race, lashed out when I asked if she would consider new evidence as part of the Senate trial. “You’re a liberal hack – I’m not talking to you. You’re a liberal hack.” She then walked into a hearing room.

McSally was rewarded by the Trump campaign:
THREE CHEERS for Senator @MarthaMcSally!!!
THIS is how you handle FAKE NEWS @CNN.

McSally’s childish outburst gives conservative media something to talk about that will distract Trump supporters from the fact that Senators are being sworn in as jurors at his impeachment trial and new bombshell first-hand evidence shows that Trump directly committed crimes.
Impeachment is making vulnerable Republican Senators like McSally very nervous. She is doing her MAGA best to win favor with Trump, but that may not be enough to prevent her from losing her seat in November.
