Trump Continues Attacks on McCain in Latest Tweets
Written by News Max on March 17, 2019
President Donald Trump continued to lash out Sunday morning at the late Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., as "last in his class" and the man who leaked the dossier to work with Democrats over a shared hatred to meddle in the 2016 election.
"So it was indeed (just proven in court papers) 'last in his class' (Annapolis) John McCain that sent the Fake Dossier to the FBI and Media hoping to have it printed BEFORE the Election," President Trump tweeted Sunday. "He & the Dems, working together, failed (as usual). Even the Fake News refused this garbage!"
The president's recent attacks, which included a tweet Saturday, are drawing a rebuke from McCain supporters.
"Last in his class, first in the hearts of his countrymen," The Atlantic's David Frum responded via Twitter.
The sharing of the unverified dossier to impact the 2016 presidential election will go down as "a very dark stain" on McCain, according to former independent counsel Ken Starr – but President Trump doubled down on the criticism of the late senator in a tweet Saturday, pointing to Sen. McCain casting the deciding vote against a skinny repeal and replacement of Obamacare.
"Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier 'is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain.' Ken Starr, Former Independent Counsel," President Trump tweeted. "He had far worse 'stains' than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!"
The president's continued attacks of the man he had long claimed was not a war hero because he was captured angered McCain supporters on Twitter, as Mediaite reported.
"Only cowards attack dead people," radio host Bob Cesca tweeted.
