First of all, my compassion and prayers to John McCain and his family for real life experiences he and all are going through. Let me get that out of the way. Sigh.
The recent comments by a White House staffer, Kelly Stadler, said in a staff meeting about McCain — “he is dying anyway” — might be unfortunate, wrong or some degree of tacky. But then she did apologize by calling Meghan McCain. That should do it, no? No, it didn’t.
Meghan McCain went on The View the next day and laces into her. She said:
“”The thing that surprises me most is … I don’t understand what kind of environment you’re working in when that would be acceptable and you can come to work the next day and still have a job.” That’s all I have to say about that, she said.
Well, back last year, McCain delivered a scathing “indictment” as it was called by media to a grand audience, while receiving a Liberty Medal award.
“[Lose] the obligations of international leadership, and the duty to remain the last best hope of earth for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems.”
Trump said, after McCain’s remarks back then that:
“Yeah well, I hear it. And people have to be careful because at some point I fight back. I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very nice. But at some point I fight back, and it won’t be pretty,” he told the Chris Plante Show.
Then the View chastised Trump for his measured restraint, by scolding him:
Whoopi Goldberg: “Mr….all I can say is ‘have you no shame, have you no shame, have you no shame?’ Damn!”
During Whoopi’s remarks Meghan McCain was heard saying “no” in agreement. It takes a lot to put the View in agreement with Meghan on anything. Whooppi went on to say “you tweet about the NFL, man, what are you doing? You bonehead!” Meghan chimed in about Trump’s comments:
“Oh my gosh. Listen, I was here yesterday with you guys when this story brake and I hate, I hate this fighting between my father and President Trump because when we were talking about service and things like that, I just find it SO deeply sacred. And this is highly politicized.
My father and President Trump have DEEP disagreements on the future of America, DEEP disagreements on the role of America globally, about the role of the Republican Party… and whom should be leading it. And my father, God love him, at 81 years old fighting brain cancer, is still out there having something to say…and I’m so proud.
There is a complete lack of courage in DC right now on all sides, all sides, all the way around, the lack of courage to go up and stand for what you believe in and for me, I….”
Of course the rest of the View jumped in on that to say it is not Democrats who lack courage, and that they aren’t in control of power.
Meghan likes to swim in it when it suits her and her family. However, the lack of courage is what Trump is breaking through. How many people are grateful that he stands up to the same old same old, and all his supporters who found their voice through him?
Up to the current comment at some staff meeting within the White House.
Immediately, now, they are calling for Kelly Stadler to be fired and MSM is stirring the bonfire on The View and in Meghan McCain’s response. “It’s offensive, it’s hurtful,” says Ana Navarro. (self-righteous talking head who claims to speak as some Republican conscience) “She should be fired,” Navarro said.
So this is the John McCain that can say anything he wants broad brushing whole swaths of people, the sitting president, and/or anyone who disagrees with him with pejorative names. Then Ana Navarro called him “graceful”.
Meghan McCain summed up her latest comments about the critics of John McCain: “My father’s legacy will be talked about for hundreds and hundreds of years,” McCain said. “These people? Nothingburgers. Nobody is going to remember you.”
She also commented toward General Mcinerney for his statement on the Haspel confirmation: “torture worked on McCain, that’s why they call him Somgbird.”
Meghan said “At some point when you’re tortured everyone breaks.”
So now we are nothingburgers too. I’ll add that to my long list. What I want to know is one simple thing. Why does McCain habitually get to have the last word?
This idea Sen John McCain must have the last word about everything and no one is allowed to say anything is hogwash. I detest that notion. Where does that come from?
I’ve been called an agent of intolerance, a wacko-bird, among so many other things, and am now told to “go to hell” if I disagree with his handling the dirty dossier. It was McCain that injected it into the bloodstream of the government.
But McCain must always have the last word? We have to shut up? We are not allowed to respond to McCain’s hostile attacks on Trump or Americans. I do not accept it.
Notice too how it usually is McCain or his family who stir up and incite this feud with Trump, conservatives, or us supporters. It’s what John does. We’ve been McCain’s whipping post for at least 18 years. Often it is personal invective and sheer bitterness.
Trump is a counter puncher and does respond, unlike some other people. He has said things in response to McCain’s salvos. Then, when someone complains about McCain, or what he has done, he lashes out and media comes blaming us as the cause of consternation. He picks the fight. That seems to be his way of getting publicity or ginning it up.
Here is the problem: media and the left look for anything to use as a wedge between McCain, Trump and conservatives. They want to stir Republican feuds. It is no secret McCain is not well liked. He doesn’t like us, it’s common knowledge. So they create or use every chance they get to feign outrage on behalf of poor John McCain. But why does McCain play along? Why does he have to say anything? He can’t let it go….like we’re supposed to. Trump let it pass when McCain called us spurious nationalists and demeaned our motives. Media tried to provoke Trump to respond. And Meghan plays right along.
On top of that the self-anointed word police in the mainstream media make issues over every statement. They are the street cops — considering they openly called Trump a liar among other things. Who appointed them? I’m tired of McCain’s victimhood.
All the things that were said to and about Trump in the last 2 years — hateful personal attacks about his ability or stability — and yet no one in media or “talking head land” has come out to suggest McCain might consider stepping aside, in view of his medical and physical impediments. Wow, just stunning hypocrisy at its worst.
So Let all those media firings begin immediately for their grievous offenses. Hypocrisy.
McCain has brought this on himself, but he squeals at every response from his victims.
McCain now clearly wants to haunt us for years with his memoir, while we are supposed to be unable to respond because he is a hero or some phony, sainted pillar of bipartisanship. Here I thought, I mean it sure seemed like, our response is what he wanted.
