John McCain has been a bit of a wildcard in recent months, not only railing against fellow republican Donald Trump, but making some bizarre claims in the process.
The long time senator from Arizona, who lost his bid for the presidency in 2008 against Barack Obama, has been a vocal opponent of President Donald Trump from the very beginning of Trump’s campaign. Now McCain has set his sights on using his political weight to stymy the President in any way that he can, growing ever more absurd in the process.
McCain’s list of strange behavior begins with unbelievable accusation regarding Donald Trump and Russia, and it has slithered all the way to Europe, where McCain’s recent appearance at the Brussels Forum was used to both attack the President and to make an absurd claim about preserving the sanctity of the “new world order” – code speak for globalism.
“The world ‘cries out for American and European leadership’ through the EU and Nato, US senator John McCain said on Friday (24 March).
“In a ‘new world order under enormous strain’ and in ‘the titanic struggle with forces of radicalism … we can’t stand by and lament, we’ve got to be involved,’ said McCain, a former Republican presidential candidate who is now chairman of the armed services committee in the US Senate.
“Speaking at the Brussels Forum, a conference organised by the German Marshall Fund, a transatlantic think tank, he said that the EU and the US needed to develop ‘more cooperation, more connectivity’.
“‘I trust the EU,’ he said, defending an opposite view from that of US president Donald Trump, who said in January that the UK ‘was so smart in getting out’ of the EU and that Nato was ‘obsolete’.”
McCain’s reputation as a snake in the grass is nothing new, but in his advanced age he has taken a turn for the utterly batty. Not only has he made it a point to consistently demean Donald Trump on the world stage, but he has now aligned himself on the side of globalism – something that was very much a part of Barack Obama and his liberal cronies’ routine.
