Donald Trump has hunkered down on his attacks against American hero Senator John McCain (R-AZ). His vulgar tweets against a man who has been dead just for seven months have shown POTUS for the coward he is. After all, Cadet Bonespurs managed to misappropriate deferments to avoid the Vietnam War while McCain was tortured by a real enemy for six years. Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) came up with the ideal response.
In a truly disgusting move, McCain’s supposed best friend in the Senate, Lindsey Graham (R-SC) did not even defend this war hero to Trump. Is it possible that McCain saw Graham and asked how he could have faded from memory so soon? Instead, it took a Democratic senator to do the right thing.
Schumer tweeted about his legislation to rename the Senate Russell building after McCain. Notice that this was the second time the New York senator had introduced it:
‘I look forward to soon re-introducing my legislation re-naming the Senate Russell Building after American hero, Senator John ‘McCain.’
During the war, the North Vietnamese found out that McCain’s father was an admiral in the Navy. They offered to free him from torture that left him unable to ever raise his arms over his head. Instead, the Arizona senator remained with his men. That is what true grit is all about. His dedication to his country kept him going he said.
McCain showed equal courage on the Senate floor and was known as the maverick for that reason. One of his last moves when he was terribly sick with brain cancer was to vote against repealing Obamacare (the Affordable Care Act/ACA). His thumbs down vote in the middle of the night was the only vote that saved health care for millions of Americans.
During weekend his tweet storm Trump lied about McCain, saying he leaked “the Fake Dossier” to the FBI:
‘Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier ‘is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain.’
Even though Republicans have not, Meghan McCain defended her father perfectly against Trump’s ugly attack, POLITICO reported:
‘No one will ever love you the way they loved my father…. I wish I had been given more Saturday’s with him. Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing over mine?’
