The Washington Post reported -- "John McCain is increasingly mad as hell about President Trump. And on Friday, he went after Trump — hard.
During a speech at the Munich Security Conference in Germany, the Republican senator from Arizona delivered a pointed and striking point-by-point takedown of Trump’s worldview and brand of nationalism. McCain didn’t mention Trump’s name once, but he didn’t have to.
And even considering the two men’s up-and-down history and the terrible things Trump has said about McCain, it was a striking display from a senior leader of a party when it comes to a president of the same party.
In his speech, McCain suggested the Western world is uniquely imperiled this year — even more so than when Barack Obama was president — and proceeded to question whether it will even survive.
“In recent years, this question would invite accusations of hyperbole and alarmism; not this year,” McCain said. “If ever there were a time to treat this question with a deadly seriousness, it is now.”
In case there was any doubt that this was about Trump. Here’s what followed:
“[The founders of the Munich conference] would be alarmed by an increasing turn away from universal values and toward old ties of blood and race and sectarianism.”
“They would be alarmed by the hardening resentment we see towards immigrants and refugees and minority groups — especially Muslims.”
“They would be alarmed by the growing inability — and even unwillingness — to separate truth from lies.”
“They would be alarmed that more and more of our fellow citizens seem to be flirting with authoritarianism and romanticizing it as our moral equivalent.”
Blog Author's Comments: Senator McCain, stay in Germany, we have enough traitors in the United States and within our government. Someone should tell McCain's daughter to put him back in the assisted living facility and back on his medications. McCain's use of his war hero status has just about run its course, there are many war hero's, with far worse injuries, who do not have his riches or his megaphone. His main problem now is that he is envious of President Trump and bitter that he was never elected president.
I should have some pity for him but I cannot bring myself to pity someone who believes and says what he has during his lackluster career in government. I am perfectly willing to oppose him and his ideology. It is time for him to officially step down from the GOP and become what he really is, a Democrat, out to help them attempt to derail President Trump. If he cannot stand with our President, and he never will, then he should leave office and take his buddy Lindsey Graham with him.
Had Defeated Hillary Clinton And Was Now Our President
He was hoping for a Hillary win, so that he could coast until his term in the Senate was over. He is now expected to actually do some work, to help the president and his cabinet accomplish their agenda. But, I believe he will only be a hindrance to the Trump administration and the Republican Party.
