Meanwhile, McCain continued his attacks on Trump this morning comparing his actions to a dictator. The Hill reported:
Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) ripped fellow Republican Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) on Sunday after McCain criticized President Trumps escalating war of words with the media.
He argued that the nation is very lucky that Trump is president and not McCain, who won the 2008 GOP nomination but lost to Barack Obama in the general election.
Paul said that McCains recent criticisms of Trump are driven by his personal dispute with the president over foreign policy.
He added that McCain and Trump are at odds because McCain supports the wide deployment of U.S. troops to protect and promote American interests abroad while he characterized Trumps views as closer to a realpolitik approach to foreign policy.
Everything that he says about the president is colored by his own personal dispute hes got running with President Trump and it should be taken with a grain of salt because John McCains the guy whos advocated for war everywhere, Paul said on ABCs This Week.

McCain is now a traitor by badmouthing while overseas. He should be impeached as Senator. The POW thing has run its course already.
Interesting that I saw the Youtube video on Trump touring the Boeing plant in South Carolina. Who was part of the tour and by Trump’s side?? None other than Lindsay Graham, McCain’s sidekick. Maybe there is some light between these two, after all or maybe Graham finally realized that McCain seems to have “hardening of the arteries” as people used to say about older people losing their minds.
McCain the “warrior” and McCain the “politician.”
The former does not begin to justify the latter, and the latter overshadows the former.
It is time for him to go on off and fade away. He is not relevant in this world today.
I love this guy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Snap out of it!
Why oh why didn’t Arizona voters primary out the old turncoat when they had the opportunities? Term limits NOW.
McCain is the new Charles Lindbergh
I learned there two kinds of dementia. With Alzheimer’s, one loses his mind. The other kind is mean. One does mean things.
I have a friend who was the kindest old lady imaginable. She is now in a facility where she is given care and sheltered from the horrible outbursts towards everyone. I have come to believe that my mother suffered from the condition except she was not so verbal she would write long mean letters to her dentist or her cousin or the extended care director.
There is no question but that McCain suffers dementia
That's an insult to a good man, in Lindbergh, who just happened to be wrong, and admitted that he was wrong.
Im very disappointed I cannot attend Boeings celebration of the 787-10 today with President Trump, Graham said in a statement. - The State, February 17, 2017
Now? He was a traitor since the S&L scandal. Stealing money as an elected official in my book makes you a traitor.
He is also DESPERATE to see young american men fight and die.
I’ve no idea why.
Did he suffer it during the S&L scandal over 20 years ago?
I stand corrected; it must have been a Boeing exec who unfortunately, strongly resembles Graham.
He's done the same or worse before, yet the Republican Party has never had a problem with him (John McCain is why I left the Republican Party, FWIW). Removing a sitting senator is well-nigh impossible, particularly so in his case he is like Kennedy was in MA and Harkin was in IA: he either voluntarily retires to enjoy his accumulated perks, or he dies in office.
As for his "hero" status and his "service to the country," he used up that capital long ago. How the hell his captivity resulted in otherwise sentient Americans to allow him some sort of media-assisted moral carte blanche to do and say whatever he feels like doing baffles me
That’s a FACT!
I had to hold my nose while voting for McCain in 2008. Frankly, I believe that we dodged a bullet, even though we got stuck with Obama.
He was required in DC to vote for the president’s cabinet nominee
I don’t think so be cause dementia is a disease of the aged
Thanks you Sen. Paul. Rand Paul has a lot of good ideas about how to repeal and replace Obamacare, let’s hope the pubbie elite will listen to him as the POTUS is.
