Trump Warns McCain: “I fight back”

As a dead man walking, Senator John McCain is free to unleash the evil that lies within his tortured soul.

In the past he was partially constrained by his desire to be reelected. He no longer has that worry. He’s letting it all hang out now. His master, Satan, will be waiting for him at the gates of Hell, welcoming a brother.

President Donald Trump, hours after Sen. John McCain delivered a speech that repudiated the President, warned the Arizona Republican to “be careful” because at some point he will “fight back.”

McCain, while accepting the Liberty Medal in Philadelphia on Monday night, warned the United States against turning toward “half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems.”

The speech was a repudiation of Trump, who the Arizona Republican has long feuded with, and the worldview that catapulted him to office.
Trump told Chris Plante of “The Chris Plante Show” on Tuesday that he heard the criticism and warned McCain to be careful.

“He was taking shots at you again yesterday,” Plante said. “You heard what he said yesterday, Sen. McCain?”

“Yeah, well I hear it. And people have to be careful because at some point I fight back,” Trump said. “I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very nice. But at some point I fight back, and it won’t be pretty.”

Responding to Trump’s threat, McCain bluntly told reporters Tuesday: “I’ve faced far greater challenges than this.”

McCain and Trump’s feud has dated back years, ever since the then-2016 candidate said the senator wasn’t a war hero because he was captured in Vietnam.

“He is not a war hero,” Trump told pollster Frank Luntz in 2015.
“He is a war hero,” Luntz interjected.

“He is a war hero because he was captured,” Trump said, cutting him off. “I like people that weren’t captured, OK? I hate to tell you. He is a war hero because he was captured.”

The feud continued throughout the 2016 campaign, with McCain regularly faulting the Republican standard bearer for comments he made on the campaign trail. McCain withdrew his support for Trump when the “Access Hollywood” video was made public, showing the 2016 Republican nominee bragging about sexually assaulting women.

Both Trump and McCain won re-election, but their feud continued, with the Arizona senator casting a deciding vote against the Republican health care plan.

The act of defiance stung Trump.

“Sen. McCain, you mean the one who voted against Obamacare?” Trump asked, rhetorically, during a sweeping August news conference. “You mean Sen. McCain who voted against us getting good health care?”

This public back-and-forth contributed to McCain’s speech Monday, where he was honored by Democrats and Republicans alike for a lifetime of service. McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer earlier this year.

The Arizona senator and his party’s 2008 presidential nominee described that “half-baked, spurious nationalism” as “unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.”

I’m certain that Trump has a dossier on McCain as thick as a law book. McCain’s corruption, his womanizing, his treason in Vietnam–all of it just might leak.

Wouldn’t that be just too bad???!!!

  1. It’s high time someone with a giant audience told the world all about McCain knowing our government has been hiding the fact that they left hundreds of soldiers in Vietnam. Trump should make sure he lets everyone know that McCain has been the one reason they remain there 50 years later – they went many of them in their late teens, to be enslaved on some farm and die over there because of treasonous scum like McCain.

  2. Since when has McCain solved problems? Generally, he creates them because he is either very stupid or has always surrounded himself with stupid people. He was a sure fire loss in ’08 with no chance of winning even if Christ, himself, had been his VP choice. McCain is why people are abandoning the Repub Party, he’s the bad taste along with McConnell, Graham and Romney, that has killed that Happy Meal.

  3. Had you told me in 2008 that 9 years from now I would despise McStain more than Obummer himself, I would have laughed til I turned blue. Strange times.
