On Tuesday, a panel hosted by CNN’s Jake Tapper shamed President Donald Trump for his disgraceful comments made about the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ).
During a press conference with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, the president continued his attack on McCain.
“I was never a fan of John McCain and I never will be,” Trump said.
McCain passed less than a year ago at age 81 after a battle with brain cancer.
“Literally his wife, his widow and his children, they are still mourning. It was just seven months ago. Why is this happening?” Tapper asked his panelists.
Conservative commentator Amanda Carpenter suggested that Trump was looking to McCain to pin his potential 2020 loss on.
“I think he is speaking from a place of insecurity,” she said. “He is looking at 2020 and I think everyone knows if he loses it will be because of a lack of legislative achievements and the Russia investigation.Who can he pin that blame on?”
“I think it is one of the president’s great character flaws. I think it’s atrocious. Let the man rest in peace,” Republican Mike Rogers said.
CNN political analyst Kristen Powers said that Trump did it to prove that he is powerful.
“I think he does this to demonstrate that he has everybody in the Republican Party under his thumb and that there’s nothing they can do about it,” Powers said.
The conversation then shifted to Trump next attack: George Conway’s, the husband of Trump’s White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.
“It is such pettiness,” Democratic strategist Karen Finney said. “How far are you willing to compromise your principals in order to serve this man? Given that he doesn’t care about anyone other than himself. We learned that over and over again.”
“This maliciousness is really infecting the whole Republican party,” Tapper said.

New testimony adds 2 stunning — and previously unknown — details about the Ukraine extortion
New testimony released Monday from the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of the Ukraine scandal included at least two new stunning details about the quid pro quo scheme at the heart of the matter.
Overall, the transcripts for depositions of Catherine Croft and Christopher Anderson, who were advisers to U.S. envoy Kurt Volker, built on the story of that we already know: that President Donald Trump pushed a shadow foreign policy to pressure Ukraine into investigating his political opponents, a scheme that involved using his office and military aid as leverage over the country in opposition to the official policy.
Trump blasted for his ‘Endorsement of Doom’ after Sean Spicer loses on ‘Dancing with the Stars’
Team Trump had gone all in urging supporters to vote for former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the game show "Dancing with the Stars."
Votes had been urged by RNC officials and Trump himself had urged his 66 million Twitter followers to vote for Spicer.
Despite the full heft of the Trump campaign, Spicer lost on Monday's show.
Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.
Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!
‘He’s misunderstood’: Nikki Haley tells Fox News how Trump is actually a really good listener
Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.
Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."
"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.
"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.
She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
