    Appearing Saturday on CNN’s Axe Files, Cindy McCain reacted to recent happenings in Washington, D.C., saying the United States needs her late husband, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), “more than ever.” A transcript is as follows: DAVID AXELROD: What would John McCain be saying right now? CINDY MCCAIN: I think he’d be disgusted with some of the stuff that’s going on. I really do. He’d be railing against what’s going on. I think John provided a lot of cover for other members and when he would do it, they could get behind him. I’m not seeing a real rudder in the...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blamed “flashing videos” on the “dark web” for her 2016 presidential election loss last Friday during a radio interview. Clinton said on Campaign HQ’s podcast that she anticipates President Donald Trump will employ a similar strategy to win re-election next November. (RELATED: ‘Error’ Page On Trump’s Website Shows Hillary Clinton As President) “I think it’s going to be the same as 2016,” Clinton said. “I’m going to show you in these flashing videos that appear and then disappear and they’re on the dark web and nobody can find them, but you’re going to see...

    Cindy McCain said in an interview broadcast Wednesday that when she listens to the political discourse of the hour she hears no “voice of reason.” McCain talked about the political legacy of her husband, the late Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain, in an interview with ABC News. McCain died Aug. 25, 2018 of a brain tumor. He was the GOP’s presidential nominee in 2008.Describing today’s Republicans as “not the party of Abraham Lincoln … nor the party of Ronald Reagan,” McCain said the political characteristic that most defined her husband — bipartisanship — is virtually absent from the American political...

  • Meghan McCain: I Didn’t ‘Literally’ Mean Democrats Should Shoot Trump—It Was ‘Metaphorical’

    ~snip~ “I will say if you take this kill shot, Democrats, you better not miss,” McCain declared. “You better hit his jugular. If there is a finger still moving at the end of it, you will ruin your chances in 2020 but you better do this well if you’re going to do it.” Almost immediately, co-host Whoopi Goldberg interjected, letting viewers know that McCain “doesn’t mean” that Democrats need to actually shoot the president. “I don’t mean literally!” McCain exclaimed. “I’m so sorry!” She continued: “Oh my God! I mean like a metaphorical. I’m a hunter and shooter

    ​Meghan McCain ​on Thursday ​accused President Trump of creating an atmosphere in the military ​in which service members are afraid ​to display the name of her late father, Republican Sen. John McCain. “The president’s actions have consequences,” McCain, one of the hosts of ABC’s “The View​,​” said at the start of the program. ​”​And when you repeatedly are attacking my father and war heroes, it creates a culture in the military where people are clearly fearful to show my father’s name in one way or another. That is what I think has started this chain of events.​”​ ​McCain said Trump,...

    Donald Trump has confirmed that a warship named after his Republican nemesis, the late Arizona senator John McCain, was intentionally hidden from his view during his visit to a naval base in Japan this week. The president confirmed that the ship had been intentionally hidden, saying someone had taken measures “because they thought I didn’t like [McCain]”. The Wall Street Journal cited an email dated 15 May from an official at the US Indo-Pacific Command to US navy and air force officials which said the USS John McCain “needs to be out of sight” during Trump’s Memorial Day visit to...

    EurekAlert! ^ | Monday, May 27, 2019 | Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History
    Apples originally evolved in the wild to entice ancient megafauna to disperse their seeds; more recently, humans began spreading the trees along the Silk Road with other familiar crops; dispersing the apple trees led to their domestication. Recent archaeological finds of ancient preserved apple seeds across Europe and West Asia combined with historical, paleontological, and recently published genetic data are presenting a fascinating new narrative for one of our most familiar fruits. In this study, Robert Spengler of the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History traces the history of the apple from its wild origins, noting that...

    The late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) listed off the names of dictators while watching President Trump's inauguration, according to Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.). HuffPost reported that during a campaign event in Iowa, the 2020 Democratic presidential contender told the crowd of more than 200 about sitting next to McCain and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) during Trump's inaugural address. “I sat on that stage between Bernie and John McCain, and John McCain kept reciting to me names of dictators during that speech because he knew more than any of us what we were facing as a nation,” she said. “He understood...

    This seems particularly unhinged. The media is constantly buzzing about how President Trump is unstable, but McCain’s behavior seems a bit…unusual. Presidential hopeful Senator Amy Klobuchar told a crowd on the campaign trail that the late John McCain muttered the names of dictators as he watched Donald Trump’s inauguration. “John McCain kept reciting to me names of dictators during that speech,” the Minnesota senator said, “because he knew more than any of what we were facing as a nation, he understood it.” She continued: “He knew because he knew this man more than any of us did.” Or it was...

    LUKE AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. — Sen. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) spoke with President Trump about the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Wednesday, after days of unprecedented attacks by a sitting president on a dead war hero. McSally, addressing reporters after a meeting with base commanders here Thursday, expanded on a tweet she sent Wednesday in which she called McCain a hero. The tweet did not mention Trump, and in her remarks Thursday she again refrained from criticizing the president. "I made it clear, I love John McCain. John McCain is an American hero. This state reveres John McCain, and...

    One can spend several days trying not to overreact to President Trump’s latest, unprovoked tweetstorm against the late Sen. John McCain R-Ariz., yet still conclude that there is something sick and twisted about Trump’s obsession with the singular American hero Trump disparages. Tom Rogan already in these pages has eloquently explained why, fake heel spurs or no fake heel spurs, Trump could never be fit to wear McCain’s discarded shoes. And lawyer George Conway, husband of top Trump aide Kellyanne Conway, has presented a persuasive case that Trump’s fulminations about McCain and other bizarre eruptions are signs of a personality...

    Cindy McCain, the widow of Sen. John McCain, posted a hateful message she received from a stranger the same day President Donald Trump disparaged her late husband. McCain posted a photo of the private message on Twitter and wrote, "I want to make sure all of you could see how kind and loving a stranger can be. I'm posting her note for her family and friends could see." The message said the sender was "glad" the late Arizona Republican is dead, and called him a "traitorous piece of warmongering s***." The message also attacked her daughter, Meghan McCain, criticizing her...

And a worried nation breathes a sigh of relief. The biggest problem with this denial seems to be that it robs him of any excuse whatsoever for dressing like a goat, complete with mask, while playing in his punk band. Plus, it could have helped to explain some of those hand and arm gyrations. Oh, well. The Irishman from El Paso also swore that there is “nothing” in his past that...

    (preceded by a bunch bull) Even though McCain died nearly seven months ago, Trump cannot put their acrimony — which caused the late Arizona senator to plan his funeral as an extended rebuke to the President, to rest. He explained to reporters in the Oval Office Tuesday why he is still taking shots at the Vietnam war hero, including in a recent Twitter rant. “I was never a fan of John McCain and I never will be,” Trump said, citing his foe’s vote against a GOP effort to repeal Obamacare. “I think that’s disgraceful, plus there are other things,” he...

    Meghan McCain, on "The View", defended her father, the late Sen. John McCain, against disparaging comments from President Donald Trump. Over the weekend Trump reiterated jabs he's made at the senator over the years, calling McCain "last in his class," in a post on Twitter. On 'The View' Monday, Meghan McCain said Trump "spends his weekend obsessing over great men" because "he will never be a great man." "My father was his kryptonite," McCain said.
