Trump Sends McCain Powerful Message

During 2008, then-Republican nominee for President, John McCain, ran on a campaign of being a “maverick”.

McCain has always maintained the reputation he’s willing to buck his Party’s leaders ever since President Reagan was in office.

He especially made that title clear in 2008, when it was widely known he preferred Democratic Senator Joe Lieberman as his vice presidential running mate instead of Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin.

But during Obama’s two terms, his maverick opposition was rather quiet.  Why is that?

Because now, McCain seems to be embracing his raging old role of being a maverick again.

Recently, Sen. Lindsey Graham and McCain drafted a joint declaration opposing President Trump’s immigration ban executive order.

McCain also broke with Trump over the decision to scrap the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, saying Trump’s proposed import tax on U.S. businesses relocating to Mexico was “insane”, and he took the lead in raising alarm about the reorganization of the National Security Council.

And then he found a reason to blast Rep. Mick Mulvaney, Trump’s nominee for the key post to run the Office of Management and Budget.  He said the longtime deficit hawk had spent his career pushing cuts to military defense spending.

At Mulvaney’s confirmation hearing, McCain yelled at the Rep. saying,

“All I can say to you, sir, is that I’m deeply concerned about your lack of support for our military.”

But most recently, McCain criticized the military operation in Yemen, which was deemed a success, although unfortunately, Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens was killed in action.

And of course, Trump clapped back at the maverick.

Of course, President Trump is right that his criticizms emboldens our enemies.  When the “loyal opposition” criticizes the White House on a military operation which was obviously successful, then it encourages Islamic terrorists to keep terrorizing.

McCain, being the maverick that he is, appeared vexed by the raid’s conclusion and described it as a “failure”.

But McCain’s memory must be becoming really short with age because he has been a large part of, if not has completely advocated for, numerous conflicts around the world.

All of which were a disgrace to America.

Trump also pointed out in his tweet:

And White House press secretary, Sean Spicer said during the White House press briefing,

“I think anybody who undermines the success of that raid owes an apology and [does] disservice to the life of Chief Owens.”

Clearly undermining Trump’s decisions will get you nowhere.

John McCain needs to bury his maverick persona because his juvenile objections and criticisms of Trump only reflects on his disloyalty to the American people.
