Senator John McCain has, somehow, become one of the biggest traitors in Washington. He has turned on President Trump who, while unconventional, is still the Republican president. This behavior has earned the ire of many who feel that he should be supporting him, not slandering him. This time though he appears to have gone too far. A video of McCain 10 years ago has been unearthed, exposing the Arizona senator for the hypocrite he is.
Earlier this week, the problem began when McCain went after the president’s comment regarding North Korea. During an interview the same day McCain told the interviewer, “The great leaders I’ve seen don’t threaten unless they’re ready to act, and I’m not sure President Trump is ready to act. I take exception to the president’s comments because you got to be sure you can do what you say you’re going to do.”
Pardon, do we not recall Obama’s famous red line? But Senator McCain went one step further stating he isn’t sure what President Trump’s intentions towards North Korea are because “I’ve long ago given up trying to interpret what he says.”
Looking back to when McCain could still call himself a Republican without people laughing, 10 years ago he was on the campaign trail. When asked if military action in Iran would be necessary he decided to answer in a song, something that has to be seen to believe. The entertainment starts at about 0:35.
Yet now he publicly chastises the president of the United States saying that by talking so brazenly about North Korea he “bring us closer to a serious confrontation. It scares me as far as its potential is concerned because they have 1,000 rockets aimed at (South Korean capital) Seoul that could set that city on fire.”
But mocking Iran in a song is acceptable?
