Behind closed doors, frustrated Trump has been mocking the physical disability of Senator John McCain, who helped kill GOP’s Obamacare repeal and is currently fighting brain cancer.
The Senator’s daughter, Meghan McCain, is furious by the news and voiced her displeasure with Trump’s cruelty on Twitter.
Senator McCain cast the 51st and deciding vote against the Senate’s original Trumpcare bill this summer with a dramatic and unexpected thumb-down toward Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell.
Axios reports that the president has been mocking the gesture from Senator McCain who has limited use of his arms due to his years locked in a Vietnamese torture cell. Additionally, during the campaign, Trump make fun of McCain’s time as a prisoner of war, saying “I like people who weren’t captured.”
Verified Politics reports: “Certainly, we can and should have political disagreements with McCain, but respect for his service should be a given.
It takes a special kind of hypocrisy to simultaneously denigrate black athletes for kneeling during the National Anthem and ridicule the disabilities that a war hero incurred in his service to our country.
Once again, Trump’s actions are truly shameful. Today, Meghan McCain speaks for all of us.”
It is hard to believe that people are upset that NFL players use their freedom of speech to stand against the hatred and killing of people of color. White players also protesting. We need to cleanse ourselves of the hatred in this country and the NFL is doing a good job.
and look who started all of this. it would have gone away but the prez threatened the football players but telling the owners for fire them. he keeps it going.
Lately the Meghans in the nation surely are taking their share of responsibility in their exercise of Freedom Of Speech. Keep it going.
