‘Get out of here, you low-life scum!’ John McCain’s temper flares with Code Pink protester

U.S. Sen. John McCain’s famous temper made itself felt Thursday when an empty-headed protester from the liberal Code Pink activist group spoke out of turn at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing.

Interrupting McCain when he’s chairing the committee isn’t a good move.

“You’re going to have to shut up or I’ll have you arrested,” McCain told the protester.

And as a Capitol police officer escorted the jerk from the chamber, the Arizona senator got the last word.

“Get out of here you low-life scum,” he said.
