Opinion: President Donald Trump treated Sen. Martha McSally like a second-class citizen during his Goodyear rally. That’s the thanks she gets, for her loyalty to this president.

After spending the last two years as one of President Donald Trump’s most loyal supporters, I’m guessing Arizona Sen. Martha McSally wasn’t feeling the love on Wednesday as the president barnstormed through Arizona.
Trump did, at least, bring her up on stage at his Goodyear rally. Sort of like, you know, how you might call your dog.
“Martha, 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.”
“Martha” got one minute.Meanwhile, the senators who aren’t running literally for their political lives — Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Mike Lee of Utah — were afforded more time. And, it seemed, more respect.
