McCain Calls Nuclear Option Proponents ‘Stupid Idiots’

Perpetual GOP malcontent Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called lawmakers “stupid” who believed invoking the so-called “nuclear option” to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court would ultimately improve the Senate, during a gaggle with reporters Tuesday.

The Arizona senator was prompted Tuesday by an unidentified reporter to react to individuals who say “the Senate will be a better place” after the nuclear option is invoked.

“I would like to meet that idiot,” McCain fired back, “I would like to meet that numbskull that would say that, that after 200 years — at least 100 years — of this tradition where the Senate has functioned pretty well, they think it’d be a good idea to blow it up.”

They only want to blow it up because you’re in it, McInsane.

Someone should ask this treasonous dick about the Keating Five. It wasn’t a 60s singing group.

Finally, proof he is a liberal democrat. He uses so much projection AND ad-hominem attacks.

When is this guy going to finally decide to officially join the other side and become a Democrat? He’s unofficially been a good Leftist for some time now.

Good grief. If this fool would have won the Presidency, we probably would not have a President Trump right now. See God does know what he is doing even if we don’t realize it at the time.

Might have a point.
Democrats are going to be in charge some day in the near future and with this precedent they can ram through anyone they like.

Tons of respect for what he endured as a POW. Almost zero respect for him as a “Conservative” Politician.

There were several articles yesterday reporting that McCain supported it.
Were they wrong or is McIdiot losing it?

“When is this guy going to finally decide to officially join the other side and become a Democrat?”

Why bother when his Vietnam vet/POW shtick guarantees him reelection every 6 years from the idiot GOP’ers in his state?

Thank you Arizona for returning the Forrestal Arsonist to office yet again, he is such a shining example of conscious thought that I don’t know what we’d do without him, truly.

Our turn to ram through a person we like. Obamites have had a far too easy time of ramming this and that down our throats while goody-two-shoes pubbies have politely receded into the woodwork.
