VIDEO: Claire McCaskill’s ‘Normal People’ Gaffe


Democratic Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill was caught on video Monday saying that “normal people” are capable of affording private planes like the one she used with her husband.

“That’s one thing that the United States has that nobody else has is the freedom to fly around and be affordable where a normal person can afford it,” said an audience member at McCaskill’s town hall event.

“Will you remind that when they come after me for my husband’s plane? That normal people can afford it,’ McCaskill replied.
The McCaskills’ plane, which they sold, was valued at $2 million.
