CNN’s reporter Manu Raju tweeted that Arizona Senator Martha McSally called him a hack when he asked about the new impeachment information the House is sending over to the Senate:
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 just responded to Raju on Twitter, saying he is a liberal hack and then provided video of the exchange:

Wow, that’s hilarious. Honestly, I wouldn’t have expected that from McSally but I love it. She could have walked by in silence and ignored him but instead, she chose to call him out.
That ballsy exchange might just earn her the coveted Trump endorsement for her special election this year in order to keep the Arizona Senate seat given her after John McCain’s death. I’m sure Trump will love it…
