No, we are not being insensitive to the fact that John McCain has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer by his Mayo Scottsdale doctors. Such a sentence is dreadful. In many cases, receiving a dire diagnosis provides patients time to reflect and even make amends.
Not so with AZ Sen. John McCain. Or his apologists.
It’s clear there is nothing John McCain can do or say that warrants a reprimand or even a raised eyebrow from his slavishly adoring fans at the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper.
The editorial carrying the title: “Our View: Trump answers McCain’s call for patriotism — with narcissism,” reeks of pomposity run amok. The less confrontational hardcopy version was titled, “McCain’s call for patriotism.”
Seeing Red AZ covered the petty McCain’s scathing remarks in America First “unpatriotic, half-baked nationalism,” says McCain —– just two days ago as he received the Liberty Medal from the left-of-center organization with a winning name: The National Constitution Center. Even while being honored, he was unable to contain his hostility, using the occasion to jealously hammer President Trump.
John McCain is an exceptionally flawed man, as evidenced by his renown temper tantrums, flagrant lies and underhanded trickery. He has pilloried people of integrity and publicly used the foulest language toward his wife. As chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee he permanently classified the facts concerning American Vietnam era POWs and MIAs. Family members who have spent decades pleading with him at senate committee hearings for answers received insults from McCain. This video exposes why.
The bitterness McCain, now 81, carries against President Donald Trump, who attained that which will forever be out of his grasp is nothing short of despicable. McCain even contrived a now exposed as fallacious, Russian collusion fable, and hand carried the dossier falsely implicating Trump to the FBI director. Though they despise him for trouncing Hillary Clinton, there is likely no Democrat as eager to bring down the Trump presidency as Republicrat John McCain.
Taking the newspaper’s preposterous praise for McCain and unwarranted condemnation of President Trump apart sentence by sentence is a task unworthy of taking on.
The fingerprints of editorial page director Phil Boas are all over this undeserved paean to McCain. Boas relentlessly hammered his own father-in-law, popular Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, ensuring his defeat after six-four year terms. It didn’t bother the newspaper that the incoming sheriff was funded by globalist Socialist George Soros, a billionaire whose aims include funding a takeover of the U.S. justice system and ultimately, borderless nations. The Republic gave a wink and a nod when liberal Sheriff Paul Penzone referred to illegal invaders as “guests.”
It’s no surprise, Soros has financed John McCain for years.
