President Trump’s now viral characterization of Kim Jong Un as “Rocketman” or “Rocket Man” (not sure which is correct) could and should be followed up by nicknaming American Senator John McCain as “Crash” McCain. That’s because McCain has provided the crucial vote to prevent a GOP repeal and replace of Obamacare again. He CRASHED repeal and replace just like he did with his airplanes.
Trump isn’t remaining silent, but he’s not going to call dying McCain (whose tumorous forehead has a noticeable lump) by an offensive nickname. But you should remember the flareup that took place during the election campaign when Trump said McCain was not a hero.
Sneaky McCain didn’t say much in response then. But I think his black heart is carrying forward a vendetta against Trump for Trump’s accurate characterization of him.

President Trump chided Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) late Friday for opposing a last-ditch plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare, insisting the GOP would “eventually” roll back his predecessor’s signature health-care law.
Trump called McCain’s opposition “totally unexpected” and “terrible” during a campaign rally in Huntsville, Ala., where he stumped on behalf of Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.) ahead of Tuesday’s GOP primary runoff against former judge Roy Moore.
“John McCain, if you look at his last campaign, it was all about repeal and replace, repeal and replace,” Trump told the crowd. “So he decided to do something different, and that’s fine.”
“We’re going to do it eventually,” Trump insisted of ObamaCare repeal efforts, adding Strange would help the GOP reach the goal.
Trump broadly chastised congressional Republicans for campaigning for seven years “saying repeal and replace, repeal and replace” and failing to deliver on the promise.
“They didn’t care, nobody cared, because they had a president who wasn’t going to sign it,” Trump said, referring to GOP votes to repeal ObamaCare under former President Barack Obama.
“So it didn’t take much courage,” he continued. “I think they voted, what 61 times? Sixty-one times to repeal and replace. They finally get a president who will sign the legislation and they don’t have the guts to vote for it.”
McCain was one of a few GOP senators watched closely ahead of a possible vote next week on the repeal legislation sponsored by Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).
McCain cast a deciding vote in late July killing a scaled-down ObamaCare repeal bill, joining Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) in voting against the bill.
The Arizona Republican announced Friday he would also vote against the latest repeal measure from Graham and Cassidy, which Republicans hoped to vote on next week ahead of a Sept. 30 deadline for approving the bill on a majority vote.
“Songbird” McCain, so nicknamed because of his alleged treason while a North Vietnamese prisoner, is simply a liar and a phony conservative. He’s a moral degenerate.
For the good of the country, he can’t die soon enough.
