Late Show: Sen. Claire McCaskill is over hearing men talk about 'Star Wars'

Posted on


Sen. Claire McCaskill is finally taking a stand on behalf of women across the country. In a video for The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, the Democratic senator urged men to stop telling women what to do with their bodies. And to stop talking about Star Wars, the next James Bond actor, and Harry Potter.

“It’s not that women don’t value your thought; it’s just that we don’t value all of them,” McCakill says in the video.
