John McCain went on a European tour to slam President Trump and people within his party are not happy. Additionally, McCain made a strong statement against the President on the show “Meet The Press” with Chuck Todd. McCain said during his interview:
“The first thing that dictators do is shut down the press,” McCain said. “And I’m not saying that President Trump is trying to be a dictator. I’m just saying we need to learn the lessons of history.”
Here is an excerpt from his interview.
In response, Senator Ran Paul Kentucky-Republican strongly responded to McCain’s claim.
“we’re very lucky John McCain’s not in charge.”
“Everything that he says about the president is colored by his own personal dispute he’s got running with President Trump, and it should be taken with a grain of salt, because John McCain’s the guy who’s advocated for war everywhere,” Paul said on “This Week.”
Paul added that if McCain were “in charge” the country would “be in perpetual war.”
“If you look at the map, there’s probably at least six different countries where John McCain has advocated for us having boots on the ground,” said Paul, who noted that McCain supported the Iraq war.”
“I don’t agree with his analysis and applying that to the president,” he said. “I haven’t seen any legislation coming forward that wants to limit the press. I see President Trump expressing his opinion, rather forceful in his own — you know, his own distinct way.”
Here are Senator Paul’s comments:
Senator McCain has never supported President Trump who both famously went after each other during the primary. However, Senator McCain has not played well with any incoming Republican’s. In 2010 when all the tea party Republican Senators came (like Ran Paul and Ted Cruz) he called them wacko birds. I shouldn’t even have to say this but Senator McCain has done a great service to this country both in the military and in the Senate, but it’s time to go. Senator McCain has shown to be out of touch with the people, and he is a great example of why we should have term limits.
