McCain wants Trump and the world to know that he is not a sickly feeble man even though he was diagnosed with an aggressive brain cancer. He even flew to D.C. to strike down the repeal of Obamacare as he proudly voted ‘No’ in a midnight showdown.
From The Washington Examiner --"Sen. John McCain was back in Arizona Monday to begin cancer treatment but it did not stop him from again hammering the Trump administration over its lack of an Afghanistan strategy."
“More than six months after President Trump’s inauguration, there still is no strategy for success in Afghanistan,” he said in a released statement. “When the Senate takes up the National Defense Authorization Act in September, I will offer an amendment based on the advice of some our best military leaders that will provide a strategy for success in achieving America’s national interests in Afghanistan.”
McCain has aggressively backed an increase in the 8,400 troops now deployed to Afghanistan as part of a new strategy. But it was uncertain what role he would play in the debate after undergoing surgery earlier this month and being diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer. He left Washington last week and began targeted radiation and chemotherapy treatment today in Arizona, according to his office.
Blog Author's Comments: John McCain is a disgraceful, petty and vindictive man. He has no record of achievement in the Senate, whatsoever. He now is relishing only one thing and that is his attempts to skewer President Trump at the cost of the American people. His lunacy is eradicating any possibility that he will be missed by the members of his own party. He is no doubt making treacherous plans for a September comeback. The sourness he harbors is eating his soul like the cancer is eating his brain. He is pretty much the definition of a bitter loser. He could not get the job done when he ran for the presidency in 2008 and is now totally jealous and envious of Trump. Yet his current outlook on Trump and the government may help keep him alive for quite some time.
McCain is one of the people within the Republican Party I despise the most. I don't wish him harm, I just wish to never have to see or hear from him again. He continually attempts to betray any team he is supposed to represent. His vote against the 'skinny repeal' of Obamacare, I assume, had to have made him feel very good about himself. McCain is talking big now for a supposed leader of the Senate that did nothing but kiss Obama's ass for the last 8 years.
Sen. McCain has no real plan to win at anything. We saw him debate the total novice Obama on foreign policy and he couldn't win. It is not even fair for anyone to ask him questions now, he is clearly incompetent. The press is stupid as well as evil, allow this sick man to receive his treatment in peace and let the rest of us get on with life. I am hopeful McCain won't be returning to Washington. Perhaps he has made his last trip, got his pound of flesh, and that brought him some consolation in a time of distress.
Quote For The Day: Democrats are the party that think the electoral college is undemocratic but that unelected super-delegates representing party bosses are just fine. They have already forgotten how former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz tipped the scales for Hillary Clinton over a surging Bernie Sanders. She interfered in the 2016 election in ways Vladimir Putin couldn’t even dream of and arguably changed at least the Democratic Party results and campaign timeline.
In all the discussions of the Russians or their operatives hacking into the DNC and exposing the emails documenting DNC corruption and collusion with a single candidate, Hillary Clinton, the content of those emails are shoved aside. The emails documenting subversion of our democracy by Democrats, revealed by Wikileaks, were written by Democrats, not Vladimir Putin. -- Daniel John Sobieski
