Sen. John McCain hasn’t even returned to Congress yet but he has already launched a vicious attack against President Trump.
What good does he expect from this for the country and for his party?
McCain chose to write a blistering op-ed for The Washington Post on Thursday night. Notice how he picked one of the vilest anti-Republican newspapers to post it in.
The Republican senator called on Americans to focus on “shared values” rather than differences and denounced the “repugnant spectacle of white supremacists marching in Charlottesville”. He lauded Heather Heyer, the counterprotester killed at the rally by a man accused of being a white supremacist. Ms. Heyer was protesting with Antifa when she was killed.
McCain ranted against ‘paralyzing partisanship’ and blamed the President:
“Congress must govern with a president who has no experience of public office, is often poorly informed and can be impulsive in his speech and conduct,” McCain wrote. “We must respect his authority and constitutional responsibilities. We must, where we can, cooperate with him. But we are not his subordinates. We don’t answer to him. We answer to the American people.”
The problem is not Trump but a handful of Republicans in Congress who won’t do what the people want. They are tone deaf and worry only about their next election.
Trump is pushing the agenda these congressmen ran on — the Obamacare repeal bill for one. McCain is the one who doesn’t want to vote for any of the Republican agenda items. He’s in the wrong party.
How is the President poorly informed when he knows more than Congress. He knew Antifa is a violent communist organization that went to Charlottesville to beat protesters they have a lot in common with – fellow fascists and Nazis.
McCain is the one who tweeted support for Antifa and BLM when Trump stated the obvious about there being wrong on “many sides”.
“There’s no moral equivalency between racists & Americans standing up to defy hate& bigotry. The President of the United States should say so,” McCain wrote in a tweet.
How is it even possible that John McCain doesn’t know what Antifa and Black Lives Matter are? They are assaulting police at any opportunity. McCain has proven himself to be poorly informed.
