SO MUCH FOR “UNITY”
John McCain has once again buckled under political pressure and he is now suggesting that Trump is a “Dictator”. Yes, really.
McCain should know better than to just throw the word “dictator” around. That is dangerous fuel for the American media to use against Trump.
Here’s the full story from The Hill:
“Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Saturday defended the media following criticism by President Trump, warning that a suppression of an “adversarial” press can lead to a dictatorial regime.
When asked about the president’s tweet from Friday that accused the media of being the “enemy of the American people,” McCain took the opportunity to underscore the importance of free press in the modern era.
“A fundamental part of that new world order was a free press. I hate the press, I hate you especially, but the fact is we need you, we need a free press,” McCain told Chuck Todd in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
“That’s how dictators get started,” he added later. “They get started by suppressing free press, in other words, a consolidation of power.”
After Trump gave this guy his endorsement, he stabs him in the back. McCain won’t be so lucky next time…
