Yesterday John McCain said that the Republicans who proposed using the "nuclear option" for confirming Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch were "stupid idiots."
Strangely, McCain didn't call the Democrats that when they did the same thing.
McCain uses every opportunity to criticize his own party, and especially Donald Trump, whether or not that criticism is justified.
McCain left his first wife, a former model, after she'd been in a disfiguring automobile accident, in order to marry Cindy Lou Hensley, whose father owned one of the largest Anheuser-Busch distributorships in the nation. But when those Billy Bush tapes came to light, McCain ostentatiously unendorsed Trump, saying that it was impossible to support a candidate who boasted about his "sexual assaults."
After the election, McCain, taking his cue from the media as usual, deemed the Trump White House "an administration in disarray."
McCain has suggested that Trump wants to clamp down on the free press, which is "how dictatorships get started."
He has criticized Trump's travel ban as a "self-inflicted wound in the war against terror."
And McCain has said plenty of other things which seem similarly misguided and off target.
It's high time we gave John McCain back to the North Vietnamese.
