The face of the Deep State coup against President Trump is that of octogenarian Arizona Senator and RINO John McCain. It was the egotistical McCain who hunted down the fraudulent ‘Russian dossier’ on fellow GOPer Donald Trump. It was John McCain who sent an aide to Europe to retrieve the dossier and deliver it up to former FBI Director James Comey. It was McCain who has acted as THE deciding vote in killing any chance to repeal and replace Obamacare, something he vowed on numerous occasions had to be done.
McCain is not the ‘maverick’ he depicts himself to be, but he is an apparatchik of the conspiratorial Deep State; an apparatchik who has met his match in President Trump.
Following McCain’s abdication of honesty when he failed to vote for repeal, President Trump blasted the senior Senator and has now continued to put pressure on Arizona’s Captain Ahab.
As September drew to a close, Trump tweeted out a video of McCain pledging numerous times that he would repeal Obama’s destructive alteration of health insurance. Trump punctuated his tweet with six powerful words that should by all accounts cripple McCain.
“My oh my has he changed,” the President poked.

Trump also shamed McCain by noting that his actions ended up betraying his buddy Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) who co-sponsored Congress’ last attempt at repeal, called the Graham-Cassidy bill.
The piece of legislation would have used block grants to redistribute wealth instead of allowing states to decide their own healthcare future, reports USA Today. Such a scheme deserved to be shot down, but that is not why McCain opposed it.
As Politico reported, McCain groused that a Republican-only bill failed to pay fealty to the ‘do nothing’ excuse of bipartisanship.
“I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried,” McCain said with a straight face.
Where was this concern for bipartisanship when McCain was war-mongering on Iraq? If he was sincere, McCain would not have voted for war back in 2002, but he is an unprincipled publicity whore all gussied up as a Senator. What a disgrace.
