On their deathbeds, most people think of their loved ones. But John McCain apparently spent his last bit of time vindictively obsessing over President Trump so he could take one last dig from the grave.
After McCain, 81, died of brain cancer on August 25, his former campaign manager Rick Davis read a statement where the longtime Arizona senator took veiled jabs at President Trump. So much for walking peacefully into the sunset.
In his statement, McCain slammed nationalism (i.e., pride in the United States) and dismissed the border wall, which is needed to stem the tsunami of illegal immigration, human trafficking, and the alarming opioid epidemic that is roiling America.
“We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all corners of the globe.
We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down, when we doubt the power of our ideals rather than trust them to be the great force for change they have always been.
Do not despair of our present difficulties but believe always in the promise and greatness of America, because nothing is inevitable here. Americans never quit. We never surrender. We never hide from history. We make history.”
John McCain is right: Americans will make history. President Trump is making sure of that, with record-low unemployment for minorities and a roaring 4.1% GDP this quarter.
Rather than mark McCain’s death with highlights of his 34-year political career and family life, the mainstream media disingenuously lionized the Republican senator so they could attack President Trump.
McCain and Trump took turns blasting each other in the press ever since Donald Trump announced he was running for president in 2015. McCain reportedly asked that President Trump not attend his funeral, and the billionaire mogul is respecting his deathbed wishes.
But the media continued to harass President Trump by asking him about McCain at multiple White House events yesterday that were newsworthy in their own right and had nothing to do with McCain.
Notably, ABC News’ Jonathan Karl channeled CNN showboater Jim Acosta by repeatedly shouting out questions about McCain during Trump’s meeting with Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta. (video below).
Imagine how marginalized President Kenyatta felt about being ignored by the press in front of his face.
McCain was elected senator in 1987, unsuccessfully ran for president in 2008, and refused to endorse President Trump during the 2016 election. If McCain had his way, Hillary Clinton would now be our president. Let that sink in.
McCain’s most dubious political accomplishment was turning over the discredited “Steele Dossier” that was used to kickstart the Russia collusion investigation. That probe has cost American taxpayers millions of dollars and obstructed a sitting United States president. And here’s the kicker: It has yielded no evidence of collusion after more than a year.
Here’s a reminder of how the media viciously attacked McCain as a racist, misogynist white supremacist — until 2015, when he started trashing President Trump.
So good to hear Chuck Todd, George Clintonopolous and the rest of the Fake News anchors paying such great tribute to John McCain, especially since they’re the same people who attacked him and tried to destroy him when he was running for President against Obama.
