  • Trump rips McCain, says he gave Steele dossier to FBI for 'very evil purposes'

    President Trump in an interview broadcast Friday criticized the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) for giving the FBI a controversial dossier "for very evil purposes," keeping up a week-long series of criticisms of the former senator that has roiled the Republican Party. Trump's latest fight with McCain, which began over the weekend and almost seven months after McCain's death, has centered on the president's seemingly festering resentment that McCain gave to the FBI a dossier of unverified claims about Trump and Russia that had been compiled by a former British spy named Christopher Steele. “If you realize, about three days...

    President Donald Trump made a rare appearance at a church last Sunday. It’s a safe bet the sermon was not based on Proverbs 15:1—”A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” If it was, it didn’t appear to have much effect. Before and after church, the president engaged in a tweet storm that insulted several people, including the late Sen. John McCain. Trump accuses McCain of being complicit in the leak of the Steele dossier, a private intelligence report compiled by former MI6 officer Christopher Steele for the political research firm Fusion GPS, which, among...

    LUKE AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. — Sen. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) spoke with President Trump about the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Wednesday, after days of unprecedented attacks by a sitting president on a dead war hero. McSally, addressing reporters after a meeting with base commanders here Thursday, expanded on a tweet she sent Wednesday in which she called McCain a hero. The tweet did not mention Trump, and in her remarks Thursday she again refrained from criticizing the president. "I made it clear, I love John McCain. John McCain is an American hero. This state reveres John McCain, and...

  • Arnold Schwarzenegger comes to John McCain's defense, body shames Trump

    Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger came to the late Sen. John McCain's defense after President Trump spent the last week attacking his old critic. Schwarzenegger, 71, the Austrian-born politician who rose to fame with the U.S. by his roles in "Conan the Barbarian" and the "Terminator" movies, said the type of vitriol coming from the president is unbecoming of the office. “[McCain] was just an unbelievable person,” Schwarzenegger told the Atlantic. “So an attack on him is absolutely unacceptable if he’s alive or dead — but even twice as unacceptable since he passed away a few months ago. It doesn’t...

    RUSH:  Trump and McCain.  This issue continues to expand and grow, and I’m gonna cut through all of the Twitter clutter and give you the nub of what’s going on here.  Yesterday in a series of tweets, President Trump told the story of how John McCain screwed over the entire country when he failed to vote to get rid of Obamacare, the repeal and replace of Obamacare.  He said that it was a last-minute thing after many promises that he would vote with the White House.This is Trump telling people that they had assurances upon assurances from Senator McCain that...

    One can spend several days trying not to overreact to President Trump’s latest, unprovoked tweetstorm against the late Sen. John McCain R-Ariz., yet still conclude that there is something sick and twisted about Trump’s obsession with the singular American hero Trump disparages. Tom Rogan already in these pages has eloquently explained why, fake heel spurs or no fake heel spurs, Trump could never be fit to wear McCain’s discarded shoes. And lawyer George Conway, husband of top Trump aide Kellyanne Conway, has presented a persuasive case that Trump’s fulminations about McCain and other bizarre eruptions are signs of a personality...

    President Trump on Wednesday escalated his attacks on the late John McCain, saying that he arranged the senator’s full dress funeral service at the Washington National Cathedral — and didn’t get a thank you. “I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted, which, as president, I had to approve. I didn’t get a thank you. That is OK. I was not a fan of John McCain,” Trump said in remarks to workers at the Joint Systems Manufacturing Center in Lima, Ohio, the last remaining manufacturer of the Army’s main battle tank, the M1A2 Abrams.

    I'm not speaking for Trump or making excuses, but I understand why Trump doesn't like McCain. McCain was arrogant, always has been. He came from privilege and we know how he got through the Naval Academy,....near the bottom. There are plenty of witnesses that knew him of the Forestall, but no one asks them what they think if it's negative about McCain. I was in the military and there were plenty of brave men I met while in the military, but bravery doesn't qualify them to hold public office. I knew some that would thrown their life down to save...

    Cindy McCain, the widow of Sen. John McCain, posted a hateful message she received from a stranger the same day President Donald Trump disparaged her late husband. McCain posted a photo of the private message on Twitter and wrote, "I want to make sure all of you could see how kind and loving a stranger can be. I'm posting her note for her family and friends could see." The message said the sender was "glad" the late Arizona Republican is dead, and called him a "traitorous piece of warmongering s***." The message also attacked her daughter, Meghan McCain, criticizing her...

And a worried nation breathes a sigh of relief. The biggest problem with this denial seems to be that it robs him of any excuse whatsoever for dressing like a goat, complete with mask, while playing in his punk band. Plus, it could have helped to explain some of those hand and arm gyrations. Oh, well. The Irishman from El Paso also swore that there is “nothing” in his past that...

    (preceded by a bunch bull) Even though McCain died nearly seven months ago, Trump cannot put their acrimony — which caused the late Arizona senator to plan his funeral as an extended rebuke to the President, to rest. He explained to reporters in the Oval Office Tuesday why he is still taking shots at the Vietnam war hero, including in a recent Twitter rant. “I was never a fan of John McCain and I never will be,” Trump said, citing his foe’s vote against a GOP effort to repeal Obamacare. “I think that’s disgraceful, plus there are other things,” he...

Trump mocked McCain for being “last in his class” after reading reports that the deceased senator and his associate David Kramer helped spread the dossier compiled by Christopher Steel to reporters and government officials. “So it was indeed (just proven in court papers) ‘last in his class’ (Annapolis) John McCain that sent the Fake Dossier to the FBI and Media hoping to have it...
