Trump's original comment about McCain was in response to McCain attacking voters as crazy.

You never see liberals complain about McCain attacking Trump voters because they agree with those insults.

McCain would always hide behind the POW thing to get away with his rude attacks on people.

McCains last vote was to blow up ACA repeal and replace. It showed just how petty he actually was.



All of the Republicans were astonished. He got a standing ovation from the Dems.

RINO, petty, vindictive, he's gone. He was a hero and a decent politician, however that changed with his brain cancer.

RIP

BTW, all of the candidates, except Biden, are now running away from ACA. A testament that it was never intended to work as they promised. It was simply a means to backdoor single-payer from the very beginning.

A long con!

That is exactly correct. He started as a maverick, ended as a shill. Sad

If he was a decent politician, he would have beat Obama.

That's why the left loves McCain so much, he was easy to beat.

Not to veer too far off the subject, but I think it's Palin who did him in.

The only reason the Koch Bros identified as Libertarian was so they could justify supporting anyone from any party that would favor their agenda. Reciprocation, legislation for cash, pay to play, shilling.


Politicians are all about supporting whoever has a fat wallet while pretending to represent the people that elected them. That notion is no longer valid and has been long spoiled.

Liberals said horrible things about McCain when he ran against Obama, to include making fun of his handicap.

Your only interest in McCain is using him as a prop to beat up on Trump.
Either its wrong to talk ill of the dead or it isnt. As for Liberals talking ill of McCain, both of those things can be true at once.

That's the typical leftist view but not supported by polling and crowd size. It was his support of open borders and war hawk thing that did him in. He didn't have a strong conservative base.

Criticizing McCain after he died isn't the same as saying you are glad he died and hoping it was painful.

You are clearly trying to distort this but we should defer to people like you on other matters like global warming. lol

I wonder why Maher, who has never married nor had kids, named his production company Kid Love. He likes to wear red shoes like a certain group does. He attended private parties on Epstein's island...
