Kirsters Baish| It’s been a wild ride to watch Arizona Senator John McCain over the last few years. For a man who constantly reminds people how honorable he is, the way he’s been acting recently would serve to prove otherwise. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump did make some comments about McCain that were less than appropriate, but at some point you just move on and get over it. The people of Arizona voted McCain into the Senate, so he should be a little more focused on doing the job they sent him there to do rather than spending every moment he can trying to screw over the Trump administration.
To put it bluntly, Senator McCain hasn’t been doing his job. He’s been spending all his time trying to fight back against President Trump and the millions of Americans who voted for him. McCain has been taking shots at Trump when it comes to speaking to the press, even passing around the infamous unverified Trump “dossier.” We all remember when McCain voted to save Obamacare. The man has jumped ship and joined the Democratic Party.
McCain recently said some pretty hurtful things about someone who used to be very close to him. Yup, the Arizona Senator actually threw his former presidential running mate, Sarah Palin, under the bus, claiming that he regrets ever choosing her as his possible Vice President.
The Hill reports:
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said he regrets choosing former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) to be his running mate during the 2008 presidential campaign.
The New York Times reported on Saturday that McCain, while still defending Palin’s performance, said in his upcoming book, “The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and other Appreciations,” that he wishes he had instead selected former Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.)
It was reported that his advisors warned him not to choose Lieberman, as he was a Democrat at one point. They claimed that Lieberman’s support of abortion rights could cause a divide amongst Republicans.
Breitbart News’ John Nolte recently wrote a piece on just how insane McCain is for claiming that he regrets choosing Palin.
Palin issued her own response to McCain’s comments, and as per usual, she showed the utmost of class.
The Daily Caller reported that Palin told the Daily Mail, “I attribute a lot of what we’re hearing and reading regarding McCain’s statements to his ghostwriter or ghostwriters. McCain’s former running mate insisted that the Arizona Senator has told her a very different story in the past.
“That’s not what Sen. McCain has told me all these years, as he’s apologized to me repeatedly for the people who ran his campaign – some who now staff MSNBC, the newsroom there, which tells you a lot,” stated Palin.
She went on, “I don’t know all the details of his condition right now. It happens to me also where people speak for me and a bell is rung, and you can’t un-ring the bell. I don’t know unless I heard it from Sen. McCain myself.”
If this is true, Palin explained that she will “choose to remember the good times with him.”
She has explained that she has not criticized McCain in the past, even though he has a bad record in the Senate. This says a lot about her character.
