“It’s a whole new level of hypocrisy that Republican senators are now suddenly worried about tweets that offend their feelings. It’s just ridiculous, ”McCaskill said as he appeared on MSNBC. “We had a president who used his Twitter account like a hitting ram and followed not only his political opponents but also Republican senators with unfair, incredibly brutal tweets.”

On Tuesday, it was reported that Tanden deleted thousands of tweets against Republican senators.

“Prohibition on someone serving in the cabinet who has expressed their own opinion on Twitter? I think it’s silent, “McCaskill said.

He added: “We need to focus on your qualifications. And yes, it is definitely more advanced, but Joe Biden has won the election and wants to put in people who really, personally felt the help of government programs like his family when they were economically insecure. “

McCaskill said Biden wants to nominate people who will fight for “working people and the minimum wage.”

“Neera Tanden represents that, so we’ll see what happens. But if they really hang their hats on a tweet, they’ll look silly,” McCaskill said.
