John McCain shamelessly sucks up to the self-absorbed media to team up on Trump

Senator John McCain proved that he’s the Grand Poobah of RINOs (Republicans in name only) after trashing President Trump yet again in order to pander to the media.

McCain responded by shamelessly brown-nosing the self-absorbed media and braying the Democratic talking point comparing Trump to a dictator.

“I hate the press, I hate you especially,” McCain joked meekly. “But the fact is we need you, we need a free press. That’s how dictators get started. They get started by suppressing free press.”

The 80-year-old career politician then tried to walk back his anti-Trump rhetoric. “I am not saying that President Trump is trying to be a dictator,” he said. “I am just saying we need to learn the lessons of history.”

The latest controversy erupted after the president slammed mainstream press (which leans 90% liberal) for pushing fake news and propaganda in order to undermine him.

Trump said the fake news media is “the enemy of the American people.” This is correct, because the media’s job is to objectively report facts. Instead, it has repeatedly called the president a “liar” and compared him to Hitler. That’s not objective. Nor is it journalism; it’s punditry.

Trump also never called for a “shutdown” of the press. He just wants honest reporting over fake news and leftist propaganda masquerading as “journalism.”

While McCain’s base (liberal Democrats) applauded his shameless media suck-up, conservatives on Twitter let him have it.

Many reminded the media why much of the public think they’re an arm of the Democratic Party.
