Senator John McCain (R-AZ) is getting too old for this stuff.

He recently got punk’d by a pair of Russian pranksters who convinced the Senator that they were actually the Prime Minister of Ukraine. The pranksters asked McCain to explain what President Trump would be doing about Vladimir Putin’s aggressive stance, to which McCain answered, “I have to be very frank with my friend, the prime minister. I do not know what the president is going to do.” If that weren’t bad enough, McCain eventually also promised send powerful military hardware to Ukraine in an effort to help defend themselves against the Russians!

John McCain’s missteps and failings don’t stop there, though.

McCain is currently in Europe for the very important international security conference taking place in Munich, Germany. His speech was rife with condemnation of President Trump and his foreign policy ideas, and full of pleas for his European counterparts to remember that while Trump may be President, the American system has checks and balances on his power. McCain went so far as to articulate that the Europeans could remain confident in America because much of the Trump team is made up of mainstream Republicans who won’t support Trump’s Foreign Policy ideas.

Oh, but there’s more, folks.

On Friday, President Trump delivered a speech in Melbourne, Florida to a packed and raucous crowd, and McCain appeared on NBC to compare the President to a dictator.

“I hate the press,” the Arizona Republican sarcastically told NBC News’ Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press.” “I hate you especially. But the fact is we need you. We need a free press. We must have it. It’s vital.”

But he continued, “If you want to preserve — I’m very serious now — if you want to preserve democracy as we know it, you have to have a free and many times adversarial press,” McCain said in the interview. “And without it, I am afraid that we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time. That’s how dictators get started.”

“They get started by suppressing free press, in other words, a consolidation of power — when you look at history, the first thing that dictators do is shut down the press,” McCain said. “And I’m not saying that President Trump is trying to be a dictator. I’m just saying we need to learn the lessons of history.”


Barack Obama is the President who was investigating the Associated Press, sifting through their private phone conversations and digging in to the work they were doing.

Barack Obama is the President who SPIED on a reporter, collected his phone records, tracked his movements, and seized his private emails.

Trump attacking the press for being biased, unfair, and at times just wrong, is not “suppressing” the press. It’s demanding that the press do their job properly. Report the news, stop inserting your own agendas, and stop trying to make every news story one in which you advocate for your personal worldview. Trump is right to hold the media accountable, and McCain is wrong for attacking the President without reason.

It’s time for John McCain to retire.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
