Senators rally around McCain legacy after fresh barrage of Trump attacks

Senators on both sides rallied to the defense of Sen. John McCain on Wednesday, in the wake of a series of scathing attacks President Trump launched against the late senator’s legacy this week. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tweeted saying ’It was a blessing to serve alongside a rare patriot and genuine American hero’.

Nah, most of the country doesn’t care. McCain was a terrible person. Everyone hated him until he opposed Trump and then he became the democrat and media darling. They are the ones “outraged”. Normal people don’t care.

Stop trying to whitewash the history of this warmonger. He was an asshole. Being dead doesn't absolve him of his sins.

For all of you low lifes disparaging McCain, I'm pretty sure none of you faced combat, let alone served in the military. Such disrespect for an honorable man. And the sad part is thaat you have no real belief in the unmitigated crap you are spouting. All to show your allegiance to a disgusting draft dodger...bone spurs? Trump is just a 4fer at the core.

McCain was honorably discharged, no convictions, no charges, no indictments, no substance to right wing fake news conspiracy theories. Strongly disagreed with many of his votes and positions, but none of that is the story here. The story here is that Trump is the kind of human who abuses the dead for his own political purposes. How low class and dishonorable can you get?

What else would you expect from a yellow draft dodger like Trump, and his cult of American Haters, disrespect those who served in the Military and you disrespect America.

I disagree with Trump attacking him, but McCain was a piece of shit as far as his political career. His military service was exemplary. He should have stopped his public service after that.

McCain was a central figure in 2 hoaxes that cost America dearly. The Irag weapons of mass destruction , and Russia collusion hoax. He championed or intervention in many conflicts through out his career in Congress. He's a war hero sure, he was also traitorous to our nation. Stop glorifying this man and understand his good and bad deeds.
