Fox News panel trashes Trump for his ‘truly offensive’ obsession with attacking ‘dead war hero’ John McCain

Published

on

An entire panel on Fox News criticized President Donald Trump for repeatedly trashing the late John McCain after his most recent comments about the “dead war hero” during a press conference with Brazil’s far-right president Jair Bolsonaro.

GOP strategist Lauren Claffey said the party is “always a little concerned” about Trump’s inability to stay on-message in the wake of his comment earlier in the day when he said he was “never a fan of John McCain and never will be.”

Host Neil Cavuto then noted that Trump’s “fixation” on McCain is “in a field of its own” apart from his typical tweeting.

RealClearPolitics’ A.B. Stoddard agreed with the host, noting that “we’ve known for a while that President Trump took it very personally” when McCain voted against the “skinny repeal” of the Affordable Care Act when he was still in the Senate.

“He obviously takes it very personally,” Stoddard added. “He mentions it at rallies, mentions it over and over again. It is truly offensive. There’s veterans that are supporters of Donald Trump that will be deeply hurt by these comments.”

“I do believe you do jump that proverbial shark going after a dead war hero,” Cavuto added later in the segment.

In Trump’s ‘murder the messenger’ White House ‘it’s survival of the morally sickest’: conservative

Published

In his column for the Daily Beast, conservative -- and former Republican -- Matt Lewis explained that Donald Trump's decision to turn on Dr. Anthony Fauci is yet another example of his habit of destroying advisers who don't tell him what he wants to hear which is why and, in this case, more Americans are going to die in the coronavirus pandemic.

As Lewis notes, Fauci, who has been brutally frank about the resurgent COVID-19 health crisis that is now swamping Arizona, Texas and Florida, joins a long line of high profile administration officials who have found themselves on the president's hit list for not toeing the administration's line.

Florida nurses bust Ron DeSantis for dismissing COVID-19 explosion as a ‘blip’

Published

The coronavirus pandemic is growing worse in Florida, but Gov. Ron DeSantis insists the explosion in cases is just a "blip."

The state recorded more than 15,300 new cases Sunday, and the positivity rate had exploded to 11.25 percent -- a 56-percent jump from a month ago -- but DeSantis disagrees with medical providers who warn the worst is yet to come, reported The Daily Beast.

“We’ve got the census today," DeSantis said Friday, before the weekend's dire numbers. "I think between 10 and 12 or 13,000 — somewhere like that — beds are available. There’ll be articles saying, ‘Oh, my gosh. They’re at 90 percent.’ Well, that’s how hospitals normally run.”

Texas hospitals are running out of drugs, beds, ventilators and even staff

Published

Many Texas hospitals are no longer accepting transfer patients in order to maintain space for a surge that’s expected to come. In some parts of the state, it’s already here.

A coronavirus patient in Anahuac was flown by helicopter to a hospital in El Campo — 120 miles away — because closer facilities could not take him.

Ambulances are waiting up to 10 hours to deliver patients to packed Hidalgo County emergency rooms.

And short-staffed hospitals in Midland and Odessa have had to turn away ailing COVID-19 patients from rural West Texas facilities that can’t offer the care they need.
