McCaskill cooks up whole pig and tweets photos, and vegans don’t like it

Missouri’s senior senator spent a big chunk of her Labor Day weekend

roasting a whole pig for her son’s birthday.

Sen. Claire McCaskill tweeted




shots of her production, which didn’t please some of her 95,226 followers.

“Um, senator, that's pretty gross,” one responded.

“All due respect senator, that's extremely upsetting for some people to see,” another user said. “Maybe a warning: dead animal next time?”

McCaskill’s response?

“Goodness gracious. So sorry I offended so many vegans,” she tweeted. “In Missouri, we raise pigs and cattle and chickens and eat them.”
