Much in the way our moon orbits the planet, or how we, in turn, orbit the sun, there are a number of small bodies under the gravitational control of President Donald J. Trump.
Of course, not all of them are wonderful spectacles to behold, smoothly sailing in a perfect arc within the President’s peripheral. There are also a number of rocky, jagged, frozen lumps of interstellar trash whizzing around the tender parts of Planet Trump, threatening to crash land at any time. One such crag-like curmudgeon is John McCain, longtime Senator from Arizona and bonafide establishment shill.
McCain has been at odds with Trump for years, openly lambasting the Commander in Chief any chance that he gets. Of course, Trump has been willing and able to rebuke the Swamp’s favorite GOP Senator on a number of occasions, even going so far as to mock the former P.O.W. for being captured during the Vietnam War.
Of course, McCain’s service and his cooperation with his captors have long been a bone of contention for American patriots who insist that his capitulation to torture endangered American lives, earning him the dubious nickname “Songbird” among military enthusiasts and fellow veterans.
McCain is now getting ready to once again toe the democratic party line from the GOP side of the senate, promising that his forthcoming memoirs will be filled with anger and hateful vitriol toward President Trump.
Veteran US Senator John McCain is to deliver a “no-holds-barred” verdict on his fellow Republican Donald Trump’s presidency in a new book of memoirs, his publishers announced Monday.
Despite being in the same party as the president, McCain has been one of Trump’s most forceful critics over the last two years, both in the run-up to the 2016 election and its aftermath.
Although he has been undergoing treatment for brain cancer since last summer, McCain has continued to voice his concerns about Trump’s leadership and recently questioned the nomination of a CIA official once involved in torture to lead the spy agency.
“Candid, pragmatic and always fascinating, John McCain holds nothing back in his latest memoir” which is entitled “The Restless Wave” and will be released on May 22, according to the publishers Simon & Schuster.
Of course, even this move for attention has already been attempted last year by Michael Wolff, author of “Fire and Fury”.
McCain’s deep entrenchment in the ranks of the Washington establishment are well understood, and watching him writhe against the America First populism of Donald Trump has only served to reiterate that reality.
