Democratic presidential contender Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) claimed Saturday that the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) rattled off dictators’ names during President Donald Trump’s 2017 inaugural address.

“When I sat on that stage between Bernie [Sanders] and John McCain, John McCain kept reciting to me names of dictators during that speech,” Klobuchar said during a campaign stop in Des Moines, Iowa. “Because he knew more than any of us what we were facing as a nation.”
