Cranky McCain urges Trump to “do some outreach” — to him

John McCain, still smarting from the drubbing he took during his 2008 failed presidential bid, continues to hammer President Donald Trump at any opportunity. Oddly, he ended up forming a cozy alliance with Barack Obama who trounced him, even routinely meeting with him at the White House to help formulate Obama’s legacy.

But populist Trump, swept into office by American people tired of the political status quo, was a bridge too far for the octogenarian Republicrat, who cultivated a “maverick“ image to conceal his liberal bent. McCain not only withdrew his short-lived support from the GOP presidential nominee, he — and his doppelganger Jeff Flake — publicly announced they would not vote for the successful businessman who ignited a groundswell of enthusiasm not seen in the American electorate in decades.

Despite all indications to the contrary,  Flake was so certain Hillary Clinton would win in 2016, that he urged support of Democrat Merrick Garland, Obama’s choice to replace iconic conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who died unexpectedly earlier that year.

Trump has nominated Federal Appellate Judge Neil Gorsuch, an unflappable man with impeccable credentials.

Ignoring Trump’s steady adherence to his campaign promises since his inauguration, McCain’s focus is on the fact that he hasn’t met President Trump in person since he took office.

And where does he air his complaints? At the German Marshall Fund’s Brussels Forum using that platform to question Donald Trump’s foreign policy leadership. McCain’s topic was titled, Trump, Transatlantic Partnership.”

What displays better form than to bash the President of the United States on foreign soil?

Here at home, McCain has called for a select committee to investigate his charge of Russian influence in the 2016 presidential election and unsupported  ties between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. McCain is convinced Congress lacks the credibility to “handle this alone.” He never called for similar investigations of Democrats Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

Given his hostility, it wouldn’t be a surprise to find McCain blaming Pres. Trump for the change of longtime symbols on the Monopoly game board or revealing that the Girl Scout’s popular Thin Mint cookies are actually fattening.

Is it any wonder President Trump hasn’t made time to fit this petulant antagonist onto his calendar?

    McCain sent a staffer to personally pick up the FAKE pee gate dossier and now he thinks Trump should meet with him??? What a foolish man. McCain is trying to destroy Trump at every turn to help his pal Hillary. He is a disgraceful man.

  2. State Delegate says:

    John McCain is known for being crude and rude, even publicly directing vile comments at his own wife. He has nurtured close ties with every liberal from Ted Kennedy to George Soros. He partnered with with Kennedy on amnesty for illegals years ago and worked with Russ Feingold on “campaign finance reform,” the aim of which was to restrict free speech. Feingold was later defeated but McCain slides by using deceitful tactics against his opponents and outspending them 10 to 1. He was censured by elected members of his own party and retaliated by purging them from the precinct committeeman ranks. PCs are the party activists who work as volunteers to get Republicans elected.

    The nasty old man was absent and muttering under his breath when Donald Trump came to Phoenix as a candidate for president. Rather than supporting him – or keeping his thoughts to himself, he and Flake stomped their feet and acted like idiots not becoming of ‘senators.’ They’re still doing it. Trump knows these two are undermining him at every turn. McCain is undermining Devin Nunes right now – his latest hit on a Republican because Nunes has shown loyalty to Trump over the spygate matter. McCain’s running out of things to (try and) hurt Trump, so maybe the Girl Scout cookie thing is next. When will we be done with this pimple on the ass of progress. It’s him, not Trump.

      It still confounds me how the citizens of Arizona continue to elect such marginal people to the U.S. Senate. There are only 100 members of the senate, supposedly representing the cream of the crop. Here in Arizona we’ve had the unfortunate circumstances of being “represented” by the cream of the crap.

    McCain in Brussels this week—-bashing Trump and America in general.

    McCain has taken over where Obama left off.

    Trump should pull McCain’s passport.

    For all of Trump’s business acumen, he has been royally snookered by Ryan the Saboteur. Ryan is already saying that tax relief is now on the back burner. Which translates to: I’m making sure that Nothing will get done.

    Trump is finding out the hard way that the fight for saving the soul of America is a lot different than the fight for the purchase of a parcel of land.

    Obama paid a little visit to the twerps in Silicon Valley before he high-tailed it to Hawaii and then to the private island off the coast of Tahiti two weeks ago.

    How long before the internet shuts Trump down?

      “McCain in Brussels this week—-bashing Trump and America in general.” Yep! That’s what this post was about.

      Nothing like trashing the President of the United States abroad. I wonder if McCain’s good buddy and personal campaign financier George Soros was there to cavort with? Johnny Mac must be bereft when he has to travel without ‘Lil Lindsey Grahamnesty.

      McCain: I’ve Yet to Meet President Trump Since He Took Office – The Daily Beast

      Yep, he’s trashing President Trump from foreign shores (again).
      I think I’ll request McConnell to get a censure together against McCain. Oh wait – McConnell’s wife, the Secy. of Transportation, supported a Democrat – Maxine Waters – for impeachment of McCain.

    FYI: Just in time for March Madness and the Final Four coming to town, be aware:

    Just what we need.
    Illegals who can’t read traffic signs are driving vehicles that are not roadworthy.
    Senior citizens driving with reflexes similar to turtles.

    And now driverless Uber vehicle causing high impact crash in Tempe.

      McCain is well known for calling people he disagrees with, “jerks,” “wacko birds,” and much worse. He’s even insulted those who come to hear him speak and ask him a question not to his liking. It stands to reason he’d be an expert on identifying jerks, since he sees one in his bathroom mirror every morning.

    Look at what happened today at various Trump rallies across America today:

    The not-so-tolerant Left resorts to injuring people who have a different point of view.

    How will the American media portray this?
