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.

On Friday morning, Trump tweeted, “Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad. She started off in Somalia, how did that go? Then fast forward to Ukraine, where the new Ukrainian President spoke unfavorably about her in my second phone call with him.”

The director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons confirmed that the FBI was investigating whether Jeffrey Epstein's death was related to a criminal enterprise.

Two correctional officers, Tova Noel and Michael Thomas, were arrested and charged Tuesday with falsifying prison records to cover up their lapses in their official duties, which included checking on Epstein every half hour, reported the Miami Herald.

The officers instead remained at their desk, browsing the internet and moving around the common area.

Republican impeachment antics backfire as GOP congresswoman Elise Stefanik sets her career on fire

Published

Since Democrats took control of the House of Representatives following sweeping midterm victories last year, Republicans have had little recourse to stop attempts at congressional oversight of the Trump administration. So, they’ve resorted to rotating a few willing members to dutifully gaslight, grandstand and exhibit fake outrage while hoping to create the illusion of fighting the good fight — all for Fox News hosts who hail them as the true heroes of the republic.
