Skip to comments.McCain, Again the Maverick, Challenges President Trump
Posted on 01/31/2017 11:21:08 AM PST by JeepersFreepers
Sen. McCain has served notice he is the Republican lawmaker most willing to defy the new Republican president.
In just over a weeks time, Mr. McCain has called the new Trump ban on immigration from a set of Muslim-majority countries a recruiting boon for Islamic State radicals; threatened to codify Russian economic sanctions into law to prevent Mr. Trump from lifting them; called the presidents decision to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership a serious mistake; and called the idea of imposing a 20% tariff on imports from Mexico to pay for a border wall insane.
The senator also served noticed that he will fight any effort to reinstate waterboarding or other forms of torture in interrogation of terror suspects; and declared he may oppose the Trump nominee for budget director because of his past opposition to military spending and troop deployments in Afghanistan.
In short, frenetic as the new president has been, Mr. McCain is matching him step for step.

Maverick” No, Donkey in Elephant suit.
Too bad McCain never spoke out against Democrats
Over the years McCain has turned into the biggest pimple on the elephants ass...
You can't fix rabies.
He’s no more a maverick than any other Democrat politician.
The senator also served noticed that he will fight any effort to reinstate waterboarding...
He might as well say he will fight any effort to re-instate jim crow.
McCains childish jealousy of a winner is beyond the pale. He wants to hog the media for his own ego.
Thanks Arizona. /sarc
The Dems’ bitch toy. Pitiful.
Globalist Traitor and ISIS supporter... Yes
McCain has gone full-Manchurian. Thanks alot, Arizona.
we refuse to put any investments into Arizona (as well as several other states) as long as it (they) persist in electing such crazy senators/reps
our capital would be at greater risk in any such place
(we apply the same “minimize the political risk” approach to investing in places like France, other Moslem or soon-to-be Moslem-dominated countries, Venezuela, etc.)
Hey Arizona, please get rid of this idiot!
McCain is fighting President Trump because he is about to get caught with his hand in the cookie jar. Unfortunately for him, what has worked in the past for him will not work this time.
If he was smart, which he is not, he would quietly live out his term and retire. Instead he is going to push it until all kinds of bad stuff is going to come into the light
We have a self-important egoist reaching for every opportunity to prove his worth by objecting to every truly conservative objective.
He does this by pretending to reach across the aisle, as though there is some great virtue in bargaining with the Devil.
McCain, Again the Maverick, Challenges President Trump
McCain, Always The RINO Idiot, Annoys President Trump
Growing tired of being ignored by the media McCain
dons his maverick costume......again.
He sure was a poodle when facing Obama.
