Trump rushes struggling GOP senator at rally: 'You got one minute, they don't want to hear this'
10/29/2020: Yesterday, President Donald Trump brought a series of guests on stage with him during a campaign rally in Goodyear, Arizona (Wednesday), but raised eyebrows with his crass sexist treatment of the only local Republican with him, US Senator Martha McSally (R) Arizona.
Trump initially said Senator McSally, “was doing a great job.”
But the president's tone of voice turned disrespectful, as he "ordered" the senator up onto the stage like a half-trained puppy, and told her she had "one minute" to speak:
“Martha, just come up fast," Trump said. "Fast. Fast. Come on. Quick. You got one minute! One minute, Martha! They don't want to hear this, Martha. Come on. Let's go. Quick, quick, quick. Come on. Let's go." (Trump)
Senator McSally spoke for just over a minute, and said she was "proud" to work with the president.
After her speech, Trump called up three out-of-state politicians to address the rally. These included Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, Senator Mike Lee of Utah and Calif Representative Kevin McCarthy. The president did not rush them into finishing their speech.
在她发表演讲后，特朗普打电话给三名州外的政客在集会上发表讲话。这些人包括肯塔基州参议员兰德·保罗(Rand Paul)、犹他州参议员迈克·李(Mike Lee)和加利福尼亚州众议员凯文·麦卡锡(Kevin McCarthy)。总统没有催促他们结束演讲。
Out of those four, only Senator McSally is running for re-election. This reminded me of a painting, “Lighten The Troika”,
That would be (R) Senator McSally being “thrown to the wolves” by Trump…
Mr Trump also called the UK politician Nigel Farage onto the stage in Arizona, and described him as, "one of the most powerful men in Europe". Mr Farage does not hold an elected position in the UK or elsewhere. Political correspondents noted that Mr Farage was also given more time than Ms McSally.
The President's humiliation of the senator on stage drew criticism from social media users.

"Martha McSally has been one of Trump's biggest defenders."
Bill Kristol, the director of Defending Democracy Together:
“I have no sympathy for Martha McSally - but Trump really is, to use the technical term, a sexist pig."
I myself am an Arizona voter, but as a rule, I respect the state's elected officials more than Trump seems to. Keep drinking your “Kool-Aid”, Donald… Tuesday Nov 3rd is only 5 days away!
