This seems particularly unhinged. The media is constantly buzzing about how President Trump is unstable, but McCains behavior seems a bit unusual.
Presidential hopeful Senator Amy Klobuchar told a crowd on the campaign trail that the late John McCain muttered the names of dictators as he watched Donald Trumps inauguration.
John McCain kept reciting to me names of dictators during that speech, the Minnesota senator said, because he knew more than any of what we were facing as a nation, he understood it.
She continued: He knew because he knew this man more than any of us did.
Or it was because he was angry he would never be president like Trump and that despite his best efforts, Trump won the election? That could be a reason too.
One of McCains final public statements about Trump was made in reference to Trumps meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The damage inflicted by President Trumps naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate, he said.
McCains role in disseminating the salacious and unverified dossier, used to interfere with Trumps election, should not be forgotten.
I think he (Steele) felt that having Sen. McCain provide it to the FBI would give it a little more oomph than it had had up until that point, said David Kramer, former McCain associate said in a deposition.
It helped that McCain, a six-term senator and chairman of the influential Senate Armed Services Committee, was better to be the recipient of this rather than a Democrat because if it were a Democrat, I think that the view was that it would have been dismissed as a political attack.
It was Kramer who gave the dossier to BuzzFeed and the website subsequently published the entire thing.
Kramer acknowledged during the deposition that he gave a copy of the memos to reporters at BuzzFeed News, McClatchy news service, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and National Public Radio. Kramer said Steele and Simpson were aware of some of his contacts with media outlets; he said Steele specifically asked him to meet with a BuzzFeed reporter and veteran journalist Carl Bernstein, which he did.
I, you know, became aware that other journalists either had seen it or had it, Kramer said in the deposition. I stressed to every person I met the sensitivity of the document, the need to verify or refute it, and not to publish it. Unless or until that would be done. And if it was refuted, it was obviously no reason to publish it.
Kramer met with a BuzzFeed reporter on Dec. 29, 2016, at the McCain Institute in Washington, D.C. The office was closed for the holidays, he said. They met for no more than an hour.
I was never a fan of John McCain and I will never be, Trump said earlier this year.
Bush League Republicans MUST become extinct before the Republic does.
Did he mutter Her Heinous and 0bama’s mass? Asking for, well you know.
The mutterings of an old fool to a younger fool - thanks for sharing, Senator.
Names! @#%^@@$% auto correct!
BTW, Utah Morons elected his replacement as “maverick”.
Given that McButtface graduated almost at the very bottom of his class at Annapolis, one should be impressed that he could at least name some historical names.
Of course, his understanding of the history behind those names (along with his understanding of anything requiring a brain) was non existent.
Rot in not peace, buttwipe.
John McCain kept reciting to me names of dictators during that speech,
Big deal...we knew he was nuts all along.
Did McCain know he was the designated loser in 2008? If he didnt know at the time, did anyone ever tell him?
McCain was just a bitter, demented, angry man.
Okay, Ms Klobuchar, you have our attention. Please, do detail how he has been a “dictator”.
McInsane was just pissed he wasn’t going to get a shot a being a dictator.
Is Klobuchar really too stupid to realize she is actually justifying our hatred of McLame?
Maybe McCain shouldn’t have hired that loser Rick Wilson.
A couple of other threads on the topic
if anyone cares to scan thru them
Can’t believe this putrid shit’s body is littering the grounds of the Naval Academy. Dig him up and re-bury him in Hanoi, with full VC honors.
Was she aware the McCain was dying of a fatal disease that was destroying his brain at that time?
I had a dear cousin who was dying of the same disease. Towards the end she kept seeing people stealing the bed sheets off the clothesline in her backyard. Not only was there nobody back there, but she didn’t even have a clothesline. Yet an hour later she seemed lucid.
One more reason to not miss him.
Muttering all these names, but was John McCain praying, or was he feeling pangs of jealousy, knowing that HE once had a shot at the very same office he saw Trump being sworn into, but which he had thrown away?
Some minds move in oblique directions, and may not have been with the full volition of the one doing the muttering.
Political version of Tourette’s Syndrome.
