Donald Trump: “I was never a fan of John McCain, never will be.”

“I’m very unhappy he didn’t repeal and replace Obamacare, as you know. He campaigned on repealing and replacing Obamacare for years then he gave a thumbs down. We would have had great health care. He campaigned, he told us hours before that he was going to repeal and replace. And then for some reason, I think I understand the reason, he ended up going thumbs up. And frankly had we even known that we would have gotten a vote because we could have gotten somebody else. I think that’s disgraceful. Plus there are other things. I was never a fan of John McCain and I never will be.”

What a despicable POS.

Trump is an angry toddler who holds a grudge forever and likes to attack people who cannot fight back.

And his hatred is spreading among his followers and having a negative effect on people who have done nothing to deserve it.

There is no excuse for that kind of vitriol. But that is exactly the kind of thing that Trump inspires. 

And it is also worth noting that there is no response from Lindsey Graham, Sarah Palin, or any of the Republican leadership to defend John McCain’s widow from these attacks.

The Republican party is the party of cowards and sycophants.

    I retired from the Army in 1995 after 30 years with three Vietnam tours. From 1990 – 95 I was in the Pentagon working Congressional relations. I had a fair amount of contact with McCain. He could be abrupt and he did not suffer fools well but he was a good man through and through. He didn’t know me from any of the other people who came to his office to brief him, but, he always remembered my name, remembered what I had told him about my Vietnam tours, asked about my family — and it was not pro forma — he meant it. True, he was something of a hell-raiser at the Naval Academy and didn’t exactly set any academic records. I knew some of the men with whom he was in the Hanoi Hilton. To a person they respected McCain.

    Little know fact. McCain’s father and grandfather were Navy admirals. While McCain was a prisoner in Hanoi, his father was CINCPAC — Commander in Chief, US Forces Pacific. Admiral McCain was in his son’s direct chain of command. The North Vietnamese offered McCain early release because of who his father was. He refused.

    I am so angry at Trump that I had best stop now before I say something that could earn a visit from the Secret Service.

      “Our country would have saved a trillion dollars, and we would have had great health care. He told us hours before that he was going to repeal and replace and then, for some reason — I THINK I understand the reason — he ended up going thumbs up,” OK.

        I caught that slip as well. The actions & speech of the President of the United States and leader of the free world has now reached a point beyond normal concern. Anyone can see that the man is not mentally fit for the job. Can’t understand why he is allowed to remain in office when it is so blatantly obvious he is a risk to the security of the nation.

    “Bolsonaro and Trump have many things in common ― they are anti-immigrant and anti-LGBTQ, they share a history of making deeply racist and sexist remarks, and neither can quite hide their disdain for the basic tenets of democracy as they rail against “fake news,” praise authoritarian leaders and, in Bolsonaro’s case, openly pine for the return of military rule to Brazil.

    What connects it all, though, and what has fostered the sort of bromance that took root last year and fully bloomed this week in Washington, is the sense of masculine, tough-guy aggrievement that fuels them both ― the defiant but insecure machismo that flows through everything they do.’

    FB>”Folks, I’m going to take a break from the internet for a few hours. Maybe the rest of the day. Maybe tomorrow as well.

    I got up this morning feeling pretty good and intended to finish a long piece I’ve been working on for a couple of days. Instead, I read a thread by Ari Fleischer on Twitter, an endless stream of lies about about the intelligence community in the run up to the Iraq War. That shit is personal to me. This guy is such an unbelievable scumbag and he’s an example of the very worst of American politics, from his lies about Iraq to his involvement with outing Valarie Plame. We killed tens, HUNDREDS, of thousands of people based on lies he helped push on America, on the world. These dirty rotten sons of bitches, they lied to everybody, to you, to me, to the military, to the world, to themselves, and they’ve NEVER taken responsibility for it. Never been held to account. And they’ll STILL lying. Fleischer is on Twitter right now lying to the world. And the part that REALLY chaps my ass, the part that galls me to my core, is that those of us who were there, who know, who saw it firsthand, WE can’t talk about it because we’ll go to prison.

    It’s left me so fucking angry this morning that all I can do is type profanity into my keyboard and scream at the walls with a splitting headache. I need to step away for a bit.”

    Sarah will say …….. “I was never a fan of John McCain, never will be.”

  6. Beaglemom March 20, 2019 at 2:59 pm

    Why is there nothing from Sarah Palin, McCain’s running mate in 2008? Could it be because she is as thin-skinned and immature as Don the Con?

    “It’s deplorable what he said,” Isakson said. “It will be deplorable seven months from now if he says it again.”

    Dear McCain family.
    Johns only unforgivable sin was his tokenism of Palin in 08. Period.

    Isn’t it odd that this man, Trump, has no idea that it very possible that John McCain is the reason he — Trump — got to be President. or at least played a part in getting him that job?? Yup, It is entirely possible that John McCain’s really big mistake, which he never acknowledged — picking Sarah Palin to be his running mate — is why we are now stuck with the stupidest, most ignorant, most morally lacking person to ever be the president. He opened the door to Pandor’s box when he selected her, and by keeping her on and never shutting her up, he left it open. She and her vile way of behaving and speaking, and clearly low intelligence let Trump and all his enablers see that it was possible, such a person could run and rile up the electorate on the bottom of the pile —- and that is what they did. I waited for 10 years to hear McCain admit his error in judgement and to the end, he never did. And, now the beneficiary of that error says he never liked McCain and never will. Once again he shows how ignorant and stupid he is. And, by expecting a Thank You for just doing his job, he shows again how needy he is and lacking in any form of human decency.
