Skip to comments.Trump gives senators a lesson on how to filibuster
Posted on 05/15/2018 2:46:07 PM PDT by cotton1706
President Donald Trump showed a roomful of long-winded senators how to wage a filibuster on Tuesday. Trump showed up to the Senate for a rare confab with GOP senators and spoke for nearly an hour, essentially uninterrupted. He managed to sidestep all controversy namely, his aides joke last week about John McCains vote not being needed on CIA Director Gina Haspel because hes dying anyway.
Instead, Trumps visit to Capitol Hill was something of a campaign rally, for an audience of 50 VIPs.
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said he wanted to bring up the White House aides disparaging comment about McCain but wasnt given the opportunity.
There was no time. There were two questions. He spoke for a long time. All of us had our hands up ready to ask questions but ran out of time, Flake said.

It wasn't a joke. It was a realistic observation. Tacky, but realistic.
“Tacky, but realistic. “
It was simply an observation.
Not a joke, nor disparaging. It was something called reality.
Washington abhors reality as the MSM has shown.
The truth isn’t always Hallmark moments but without truth there is no knowledge, no ability to address problems, just sappy meaningless babble.
Political correctness is stifling our ability to function. PC is a weapon the left uses to incapacitate and destroy momentum. They fight dirty and we need the sledge hammer of blunt truth to kapow! them.
This McCain comment is shaping up to be another thing Libs/DIMS will be talking about until the end of time.
If he is not there to vote then his vote does not count. It does not matter if the reason he is not there is because he is supposedly dying or if he is hiding because he does not want to be brought up on charges.
Not there in person, no vote.
It’s McCain who is preventing representation in the Senate by not resigning. Perhaps that POS is waiting until June 1 to resign to prevent an early election for his seat. We shall see.
They are hypocritical pukes, they do and say awful things and then attack an honest observation.
Mc Cain is dying! I said it, shoot me.
McCain and his liberal supporters want it both ways: milk the sympathy for dying, but deny that he is dying.
Trump should demand an apology from McCain for his involvement with the dossier.
This story is the result of four apes - BURGESS EVERETT, HEATHER CAYGLE, ELIANA JOHNSON and ELANA SCHOR - pounding incessantly on 100 typewriters for 24 hours.
John McCain should be the FIRST in line to vote for Haspel confirmation!
Why? Because McCain knows FIRST HAND torture works!
McCain was tortured after capture by North Vietnamese. And then he gave them any information they wanted. That is why the North Vietnamese gave McCain the nick name “songbird”. After that McCain received better treatment as prisoner of war since he was giving the enemy any information they wanted. From then on, He was treated
better than other American prisoners.
McCain has a serious case of TDS. He lost the election to Obummer in a landslide, while Trump defeated the smartest woman in democrat party by several electoral votes. Then Trump calls him NOT a war hero because bad pilot McCain was shot down and captured. McCain will die hating Trump.
“Political correctness is stifling our ability to function. PC is a weapon the left uses to incapacitate and destroy momentum.”
Stopping PC attacks is easy. Call the attacker a Nazi and watch his head spin around and spit green pea soup. Works every time.
The media keeps asking about the comment. The media then uses the answers to say every one on the hill is still talking about the comment.
Someone put Flake out to pasture... He’s gone full RINO! ...
Sounds like a plan. Turn about is fair play.
Tell Flake “You’re a lame duck. Shut up and sit down. You don’t matter any more”.
And dems always show such decorum when one of ours is sick or injured.
I refer you to the hateful bile being spewed about our lovely First Lady.
Perhaps a better way to make it less disparaging and harsh would be....
John McCain is rapidly approaching room temperature and wont be down for breakfast....
