On Monday, Republican political consultant Rick Wilson slammed President Donald Trump after he tweeted insults about the late Senator John McCain.
During an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Wilson said that Trump is still intimidated by McCain.
“An actual man can own his mistakes and laugh at himself and have some self-referential moments where he doesn’t have of this constant fake swaggering act like Donald Trump,” Wilson said.
“Donald Trump, you know, for the faux macho act is just that, it’s a mile wide and an inch deep. A physical and moral coward, someone who ran from service from his country. The fact that he wants to hide his grades is self-evident because the guy obviously has the IQ as a room-temperature cup of yogurt,” he said.
Wilson added, “[Trump is] a man who has never shown any kind of accountability, responsibility, courage, or the integrity of any kind, in any sphere of his behavior. So John McCain is a rebuke to Donald Trump from beyond the grave. And he hates it. He doesn’t hate it because of the dossier. He hates it because Donald Trump knows that John McCain was more of a man than he could ever possibly hope to be.”

Adam Schiff: GOP senators should allow Bolton to testify or face the music when his book comes out
Appearing on CNN's "New Day," Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) -- who is leading the impeachment prosecution of Donald Trump on the Senate floor -- said Republicans can now either agree to let former national security adviser John Bolton to testify about the president's Ukraine scandal or face the wrath of voters when the former White House aide's book comes out.
Late Sunday the New York Times reported, "President Trump directly tied the withholding of almost $400 million in American security aid to investigations that he sought from Ukrainian officials, according to an unpublished manuscript of a book that John R. Bolton, Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, wrote about his time in the White House."
Auschwitz survivors to issue warning 75 years after liberation
Seventy-five years after the liberation of Auschwitz, a dwindling number of elderly Holocaust survivors will gather at the former German Nazi death camp on Monday to honour its over 1.1 million mostly Jewish victims amid fresh concerns over anti-semitism.
More than 200 survivors are to come from across the globe to the camp the Nazis built in Oswiecim in then-occupied Poland, to share their testimony as a stark warning amid a recent surge of anti-semitic attacks on both sides of the Atlantic, some of them deadly.
"We want the next generation to know what we went through and that it should never happen again," Auschwitz survivor David Marks, 93, told reporters at the former death camp on Sunday, his voice breaking, heavy with emotion.
