Sen. John McCain’s credibility is eroding with every day of his anti-President Donald Trump agenda.
On Tuesday the Arizona senator took aim at the president again, this time over his comments about meeting North Korea with “fire and fury.”
“I take exception to the President’s comments because you gotta be able to do what you say you’re gonna do,” he told KTAR radio as he appeared with his daughter, Fox News personality, Meghan McCain. ” I don’t think that’s a way you attack an issue and a challenge like this.”
“I don’t know what he’s saying and I’ve long ago given up trying to interpret what he says,” the Senator told KTAR.
McCain, who until yesterday seemed to have never met a war he didn’t like, said that all that the president’s words do is “bring us closer to a serious confrontation.”
“It scares me as far as its potential is concerned because they have 1,000 rockets aimed at (South Korea capital) Seoul that could set that city on fire,” he said.
But was he scared about the rockets that could set Israel on fire from Iran when, on the presidential campaign trail in 2007 against President Obama, he cavalierly threatened to bomb Iran — in song?
During a campaign appearance in South Carolina an audience member asked him about potential military conflict with the Middle East nation.
The senator’s response was to sing “Bomb Iran” set to the Beach Boys’ hit “Barbara Ann.”
“How many times do we have to prove that these people are blowing up people now, never mind if they get a nuclear weapon. When do we send them an airmail message to Tehran?” the he asked.
“That old, eh, that old Beach Boys song, Bomb Iran,” he said to laughter. “Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, anyway, ah.”
And he is worried about the president’s rhetoric?
It’s far from the first time McCain has been shown to be hypocritical.
His recent vote against passing a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare have many on social media already calling him out for his historical hypocrisy.
It seems, more and more, that Sen. McCain’s only reliable position is to be against whatever the president is for.
As for Sen. McCain’s nonchalant tune about bombing Iran, it set off a series of hilarious spoof videos of the Beach Boys hit.
