McCain plays CYA: Tries blaming Trump in advance of his loss

McCain can blame his dubious reelection chances on Trump and angry Hispanics, but it’s the fed up GOP conservatives who are prepared to toss him to the curb

At a private fundraiser last month, John McCain warned attendees that Donald Trump as the GOP nominee could antagonize Latino voters in Arizona, making his reelection campaign “the race of my life.”

POLITICO reports that publicly, John McCain insists Donald Trump will have a negligible effect on his campaign for reelection. But behind closed doors at a fundraiser in Arizona last month, the Republican senator and two-time presidential hopeful offered a far more dire assessment to his supporters.

“If Donald Trump is at the top of the ticket, here in Arizona, with over 30 percent of the vote being the Hispanic vote, no doubt that this may be the race of my life,” McCain said, according to a recording of the event obtained by POLITICO. “If you listen or watch Hispanic media in the state and in the country, you will see that it is all anti-Trump. The Hispanic community is roused and angry in a way that I’ve never seen in 30 years, ” he said.

Once again McCain’s got it wrong. It’s not Hispanics who are aroused and angry.  It’s  conservative Republicans who are tired of being on the receiving end of McCain’s vengeful wrath as he colluded with liberals — including a top Obama donor — to oust longtime Party activists from their elected precinct committeemen posts. It’s conservative Republicans who resent having him target them for IRS scrutiny as he conspired with Democrats in the Obama administration and his leftist senate  colleagues. The embarrassment of statewide intra-party censures infuriated him.

McCain has forged deep inroads with the ambitious AZ GOP chairman, Robert Graham, whose loyalty extends to those he thinks can benefit him.  It’s one hand washing the other, but the water is murky and there is no soap strong enough to sanitize the fetid stench. 

Running for another 6-year term at age 80, is obscene, but nothing fazes McCain. That’s why he can lie about the border fence one day and the following day he and his underling Jeff Flake can cobbled together the Gang of Eight amnesty hacks and even endorse one of them, Marco Rubio, for president of the United States.

    Seeing Red AZ has hit it out of the park once again. This is the perfect summation of lowlifes John McCain and Jeff the Flake. They both think slopping at the public trough is their due and we the citizens of Arizona take a backseat to their aspirations and gilded lives, packed with free global travel (fact-finding missions!?!?) and perks galore. We need term limits for scoundrels such as these two AZ senators, who run as Republicans and comport themselves and vote as liberals. I’m voting for Dr. Kelli Ward for US Senate. It’s important we don’t let the mass of candidates split the vote and allow this rancid old geezer to slide back into office.

      I love the ‘rancid old geezer” remark. Can I steal it?

      • Arizona Conservative Guy says:

        No theft needed. You can use it, of course, I just ask that you give credit to this great SRAZ website, which inspires me to wax so poetic!!!!!

    If McCain’s polling looks bad – he should take it like a man and stop blaming Trump. He’s like his buddy, Obama – it’s someone else’s fault that he’s not doing well. His partner, Lindsey Graham, came out and blasted Trump today as not having the proper temperament to be president. Isn’t McCain known to have an explosive temper? And a foul mouth? Even when it comes to his own wife – in public?

    Tell me – has this vile human being ever stood up for or protected the conservative Republicans of Arizona like this? Ever?!

    Woman calls Obama an Arab at Rally – McCain condems talk

    • Maggie says:

      John McCain as the 2008 Republican presidential candidate, spent more time defending Barack Hussein Obama than running to win. I agree with some commenters here on SRAZ who have written that they think McCain actually voted for Obama. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least.

    Remember—-just a few weeks ago, Senator Chuck Schumer (D) (NY) proudly and boldly broadcast that the Gang of 8 will be back after the November elections. And they have a lot planned for US.
    And it ain’t good news for American citizens.

    Perhaps they should just move Washington to London so they can openly worship at the feet of the new radical-loving muslim mayor.

    The GOP’s refusal to accept Trump is putting Congressional seats at risk

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      It IS orchestrated. They’re all saying the same thing. Karl Rove was first out of the pack the other morning. He also looked like he was going to be sick, and sounded just like Paul Ryan does here. I hope Trump uses his “art of the deal” on these crybabies, especially in his meeting next week with Paul Ryan.

      Challenger to Paul Ryan

        From Breitbart:
        Paul Nehlen: Paul Ryan ‘Sold His Vote! I Absolutely Believe That’

        House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Wisconsin primary opponent Paul Nehlen tells Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon today that he absolutely believes Paul Ryan “sold his vote” to support so called trade deals that Nehlen says are damaging to America.

        Nehlen adds that 83 percent of Paul Ryan’s political fundraising comes from outside his Wisconsin district. “The vast majority comes in the form of large campaign donations from inside the D.C. Beltway…. He sold his vote. He sold his vote. The same people that are donating to his campaign want these open border initiatives. This isn’t a Free Trade deal.”

        Asked if he genuinely believed Ryan sold his vote, “I absolutely believe that,” said Nehlen. “The FEC reports back me up. This isn’t my contention. This is a fact.

        heres Nehlen

      • azgary says:

        The AMP Calyspo Poll finds Nehlen leading Paul Ryan 48% – 41%

        .Paul Ryan is becom­ing more and more disliked through­out the nation, and in his own House district, with voters approv­ing of his challenger by greater and greater margins accord­ing to the new poll released by AMP Calypso, showing Mr. Nehlen captur­ing a jaw dropping amount of support.

    That photo of the amnesty slugs grinning from ear to ear makes me want to spew. .Apparently the future of the country means nothing to them. When people enter here in violation of the law they show from their initial act the low regard in which they hold our laws and our sovereignty. Crime comes easily to those who didn’t respect the law in the first place. I am beyond disgusted with those who take an oath to defend our country (McCain and Flake) and yet devote themselves to granting legal status to those who hold our nation”s laws in contempt.

  6. CultureShocked says:

    What would you say to this scenario? I am so disgusted with McCain and also Flake. That as far as McCain goes I will certainly vote for K. Ward. but what if she doesn’t pull it off? This dilemma causes me to wonder if I just might pull the handle for the dem in the general. This is causing me to lose sleep.

    • Doc says:

      Please allow me to lend a hand…when JD Hayworth lost in the primary to mcTRAITOR, I wrote his name in anyway in the general….& I sleep better for it.

      …OR…you could just skip that spot on your ballot.

      NEVER hillary…
      NEVER mccain…
