President Trump’s continued assault on the Washington establishment has clearly put a target on his back in recent weeks, with RINO Senator John McCain ready to put his finger on the trigger once again.
Over the course of the last year, Arizona Senator John McCain has been a thorn in the side of Donald Trump in more ways than one. Not only has the flip-flopping congressman derided the President in public several times over the course of his fledgling presidency, but the aging veteran has been integral in defeating the much sought-after Obamacare repeal agenda. In fact, McCain was so smugly proud of himself for defying the American voters who have clamored for the dismantling of the disastrous policy that his “no” vote was a staged publicity stunt on the floor of Congress itself, in which the aging Senator produced a dramatic “thumbs down” gesture to gasps from his own party.
Now, as McCain continues to poke and prod at the President from behind his “war hero” shield, Donald Trump has rightfully had enough, issuing a stern but fair warning to the congressman.
“President Trump warned on Tuesday that he would “fight back” after Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) delivered a blunt denunciation of nationalist forces that was seen by many as a thinly-veiled attack on the president.
“‘People have to careful, because at some point I fight back,’ Trump told WMAL radio host Chris Plante. ‘I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very nice. But at some point I fight back, and it won’t be pretty.’
“McCain responded to Trump’s comments moments later, saying that he has ‘faced far greater challenges than this,’ according to CNN.
“Speaking at an award ceremony in Philadelphia Monday night, McCain warned against ‘spurious nationalism‘ and the dangers of the U.S. abdicating its global leadership responsibilities.”
McCain’s reliance on “nationalism” as a potential enemy of the American people demonstrates the generational gap that exists between John McCain and the average U.S. voter. Where once “nationalism” only correlated to the national socialists of the 1940’s, the “nationalism” of today is truly nothing more than a fervent patriotism.
Patriotism and John McCain have themselves a spurious history, after McCain’s time as a P.O.W. provided a great many national secrets to his captors in exchange for preferential treatment.
