President Trump has only been on the job a few weeks, but he’s already had enough of the media’s favorite RINO, John McCain (R-AZ). McCain recently argued that a U.S. military raid on an al-Qaeda compound in Yemen was a “failure” because one of our SEAL’s had lost his life in the operation.
When asked for comment, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said, “It’s absolutely a success, and I think anyone who would suggest it’s not a success does disservice to the life of Chief Ryan Owens.”
The President was not nearly as measured as Spicer in his criticism of McCain’s comments and took to Twitter to let him know.
“Sen. McCain should not be talking about the success or failure of a mission to the media. Only emboldens the enemy! He’s been losing so long he doesn’t know how to win anymore, just look at the mess our country is in – bogged down in conflict all over the place. Our hero Ryan died on a winning mission (according to General Mattis), not a “failure.” Time for the U.S. to get smart and start winning again!”
However, it wasn’t just the White House who couldn’t believe that McCain, of all people, would make such a ridiculous comment. Many members of the military and their families could be heard audibly groaning at the statement. Taya Kyle, widow of the great American Sniper Chris Kyle, may have said it best when she spoke out for military families across America on Fox News’ Fox and Friends. Responding to McCain’s statement she said, “He certainly could apologize to the family for saying it was a failure because that insinuates that his life was given for nothing and it wasn’t. They got 14 high-value targets. That’s a big deal. These guys went in and risked their lives, and they were very successful.”
