Jim Acosta Master-Trolls Trump Over Attack On John McCain & Donald Is Raging


So few people have defended American war hero Senator John McCain (R-AZ) against Donald Trump’s vicious tweet bombs. Even McCain’s supposed best friend Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) folded despicably. When a president refuses to take responsibility for his own actions, he looks around for someone else to blame. POTUS’ eyes landed McCain,  because he died seven months ago and cannot defend himself. That was beyond disgusting. Fortunately, there is one person with a big camera lens on his words, who took Trump on.

CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta pointed out evidence that Trump lied about the senator misleading him:

‘A former McCain aide says Trump was lying when he claimed today the senator had misled the WH and said he was going to support “repeal and replace” effort before changing his mind. “Nope. Never happened,” the former aide said. “You’re surprised Trump lied?” the ex-aide added.’

Republican lobbyist and chair of the American Conservative Union Matt Schlapp defended the current commander-in-chief and five-time Vietnam War evader. Schlapp lied:

‘This is not accurate @Acosta. McCain met w me in my office and pledged to support every version of repeal and replace and said he would lead the charge. Everyone was worried he would flip flop (sic) when it mattered and well he did on the flight to dc.’

Acosta did not let it rest. He pointed out how disgraceful an attack on a dead hero was:


‘Serious question Matt.. Does your organization defend Trump’s continued attacks on McCain after his death?’

Then, Acosta retweeted CNN producer Betsy Klein, who also defended McCain. She did it, because it was the right thing to do:

‘.@SenatorIsakson: “I just want to lay it on the line, that the country deserves better, the McCain family deserves better, I don’t care if he’s POTUS, owns all the real estate in NY, or is building the greatest immigration system in the world…”‘

Then, Acosta backed up his tweets calling Trump out as a liar with the facts. He quoted John McCain’s full speech about the Senate healthcare vote:

‘FULL SPEECH: John McCain on key Senate healthcare vote: “I voted for the motion to proceed to allow debate to continue and amendments to be offered. I will not vote for the bill as it is today. It’s a shell of a bill right now. We all know that.”’

Trump said he never liked McCain and he never would. Acosta proved the president to be such a small man and such a repugnant liar in his next tweet:

‘Trump said McCain “told us, hours before, that he was going to repeal and replace.” McCain gave this speech two days before the Senator’s “thumbs down” moment, warning he would not support the bill…’

Meghan McCain summed up Trump’s attack on her father beautifully. POLITICO reported that she said:

‘No one will ever love you the way they loved my father.’
