Donald Trump is not worthy of cleaning Senator John McCain’s (R-AZ) toilet. The sitting president famously said “I like people who don’t get caught.” He certainly did not get caught in the Vietnam war with his four educational deferments and one fake Dr.’s note, a lie of bone spurs.
Yesterday was Senator Tammy Duckworth’s (D-IL) 16th Alive Day. The UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter she was co-piloting on rescue missions was shot down 16 years ago in Iraq. They thought that she was dead and went on to assist other victims then realized she was still alive and carried her out. Major Duckworth lost both legs and much of the use of one of her arms. The Purple Heart recipient calls Trump Cadet Bone Spur.
Senator McCain was shot down and nearly drowned in a lake in North Vietnam. He was held captive and severely tortured for over five years. Although when the enemy realized he was the son of the Admiral holding the Indo-Pacific command, they said he could go. McCain refused to leave his men behind.
He died of a cancerous brain tumor in 2018. One of his last acts in the Senate was to give the deciding vote for Trump’s rescinding Obamacare (ACA/Affordable Care Act) bill, a dramatic late-night thumbs down.
Since then, Trump has had it in for McCain, even after his death in 2018. The senator specifically kept 45 out of his funeral. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) sneaked Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner into it after being a longtime friend to McCain. Graham has never defended McCain publically to Trump, and the senator was not asked to speak at the senator’s service.
After the presidential election, the senator’s daughter Meghan McCain gave POTUS his just desserts, she told DeadState.org. The viral meme is priceless:
‘Meghan McCain to Trump: “I like people who don’t lose Arizona.”‘
Right after the networks called her state for President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, she sent out the meme. She had the perfect line for it:
‘I like people who don’t lose Arizona.’
When reporters asked about McCain’s military service back in 2015, Trump said:
‘[He’s] not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.’
Politicians and celebrities have been celebrating by posting memes and GIFs after the meme:
‘They have also been thanking the late John McCain, who served as the Senator for Arizona from 1987 until his death in 2018, suggesting Biden’s win gives him the last laugh in a long-running feud with Trump.’
Meghan McCain responded to Trump’s 2015 comments and said, according to The Newsweek Magazine:
‘In light of tonight’s news… sorry I had to, the meme is too funny.’
The senator’s wife Cindy McCain publically endorsed Joe Biden and against Donald Trump before the election. When, the president lost his bid for reelection, she tweeted:
‘Congrats to @JoeBiden for carrying my home state of Arizona. I am so proud of Arizonans for showing up in record numbers to make their voices heard. Thank you to the election workers who ensured a fair and honest process. Let’s get to work!’
Twitter world went over the top on McCain’s response. It was beautiful. Check out some of our favorite responses below:
