“The bottom line is, I think people are just tired of the way this president operates, whether it be when he tweets like a petulant man-child or when he’s a ruthless demagogue,” Pocan said on MSNBC.

Pocan is one of multiple Democratic lawmakers who offered McCabe a job in the hours after he was fired so that he could receive full pension benefits. The congressman said he had not heard back about his offer as of Sunday night.
