John McCain is facing backlash, hatred and insults from Trump supporters after his comments about Trump and what is really unfortunate is that what he said was 100% true. He has said he will not be intimidated by the angry Trump supporters and he will stand by his words because he knows they are facts.
Therefore, the calls from Trump supporters and the Tea Party activists for McCain to retract his statements and issue an apology to Donald Trump have fallen on deaf ears and now Trump supporters say McCain should actually retire since he is already “old enough and probably 80 years old” they said.
They pointed out his age and said he should retire and be replaced by some one who is willing “to work well with trump.” Others went as far as to call McCain a traitor.
The Washington Times Oped said:
The Arizona senator, who says he’s a Republican, actually came out and told a left-leaning overseas newspaper, the Guardian, that Barack Obama provided better leadership for America than Trump.” The Washington Times is a pro-Trump newspaper not to be confused by The Washington Post.
The fact is that what McCain said is the truth and factual as shown in the remarks below:
Asked if the country stood on sturdier ground under former President Obama’s leadership, McCain said “yes,” according to the report.
“As far as American leadership is concerned, yes,” said McCain, though he vocally criticized many of the Obama administration’s foreign policy decisions.
By saying that Obama provided better American leadership and that America commanded global respect under Obama, he hit the Republicans, Tea Party and Trump supporters where it hurts most and they will never forgive him.
But what is admirable about Senator John McCain is that he says the truth whether it hurts him and his party. He puts America first and Party second unlike other politicians who put their party first.
McCain says the truth no matter how unpopular it may seem. And even if he lost to Barack Obama in the 2008 Presidential elections, he is not willing to let that resentment eat him up. He gives credit where it is due. If all Republicans were as honourable as McCain and were willing to reach out across to the other aisle, America would be in a much better place.
