President Donald Trump insisted Thursday he had nothing to do with keeping the USS John S. McCain hidden from the site of his weekend speech in Japan. He said whoever had done so was well-meaning. I wasnt involved. I would not have done that. I was very angry with John McCain because he killed health care, Trump said, referring to the late senators deciding vote that killed a Senate GOP bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act. I was not a big fan of John McCain in any way, shape or form, Trump continued in comments to reporters on the South Lawn of the White House. Now, somebody did it because they thought I didnt like him, OK? And they were well-meaning. I will say, I didnt know anything about it. I would never have done that.

I was not a big fan of John McCain in any way, shape or form,...
Easy now to say something nice and MAYBE gain a few fans.
HARDER to say what you believe all the time.
I have trouble with it.
The guy is great.
Well ... I mean ... he’s not wrong is he? /s
Id sooner have a USS Josef Stalin than Mcshame.
The guy caused more damage to this Republic than any external enemy
Wanna bet whoever did it has a pretty good idea what McCain’s involvement in Spygate was...
I would never have done that
I would have changed the name to the USS Songbiird
What you said.
He likely ####ed us in the house elections because of health care.
People don’t know or care that mccain caused it.
They just know it wasn’t overhauled and blamed the party in power
No matter what you think of McCain, and I am NOT a fan, the optics on this one are bad enough that if someone on staff actually requested this, then that person should be made free to pursue other opportunities. Im not at all sure it really happened. There are some indications that perhaps the ship was being painted right up until the day before the event, and then the tarp removed right before, and a maintenance barge sent away so as to not be part of the warship anchorage for the event. Someone needs to get to the bottom of what really happened and take appropriate action / PR steps beyond what has happened to date.
And God, being good, killed John McCain.
PRAISE BE TO GOD!
This President does not jack around.
Heres your story media.
CNN Sucks. lol.
Impeach the McCain Hater!!
"I wasnt involved. I would not have done that"
And that's all you needed to say on the matter.
It didn’t happen. The media is now tossing bones at him.
Trump has had a long day, and needs to take a breath.
The John McCain is named after his naval war hero patrons. Not him.
Just wait till Number One Dottir Megyn finds out.
I like people who weren’t captured.
And the entire "hid it" story is fake news.
