Trump Viciously Attacks Late Sen. John McCain In Wild Rant About Obamacare
President Donald Trump on Saturday descended into a wild rant against late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Twitter over his vote against the GOP Senate majority during the Republican attempt to repeal Obamacare in 2017.
The Arizona Senator, who died last year, was the third Republican to vote against the bill to replace the Affordable Care Act, former President Obama’s signature legislative accomplishment, in 2017.
The tweet appeared to refer to the unverified dossier of Trump’s ties to Russia, authored by a former British intelligence agent and reportedly provided to BuzzFeed by McCain’s office.
“Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier ‘is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain,'” Trump said, apparently quoting former independent counsel Ken Starr, who headed the investigation into the Clinton administration.
“He had far worse ‘stains’ than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!” the president continued.
This is the second time Trump attacks McCain in recent months. He also told a group of news anchors during a meeting in February that the late Arizona Republican’s book in which McCain was critical of Trump “bombed.”
McCain was a frequent critic of Trump and rescinded his endorsement during the 2016 general election following lewd comments Trump made on an “Access Hollywood” video that resurfaced late in the campaign.
Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier “is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain.” Ken Starr, Former Independent Counsel. He had far worse “stains” than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!
