Claire McCaskill: The Founding Fathers were "maniacal" in wanting separation of powers

Host Joe Scarborough cut in to note her criticism was focusing solely on the GOP and ignoring the Democrats.

“You’re just talking about the Republicans and the Republican candidate for president. Is this just a problem of one party?” Scarborough asked. “Or is this a problem of a system that just has been divisive long before Donald Trump even became a Republican?”

McCaskill then engaged in a bit of baffling historical talk.

“Well, part of the problem is that our framers were a little maniacal in that if you look at other democracies around the world, when one party wins the congressional branch, they take the Executive branch,” McCaskill said. “Not in our country.”
