Trump just escalated his attacks against John McCain in disgraceful Oval Office outburst

President Trump doubled down on his criticism of the late Senator John McCain this morning in an Oval Office press appearance with Brazil’s fascist president Jair Bolsonaro, again spitting on the grave of a prominent Republican in a petulant display of the cranky resentment that has come to define Donald Trump’s presidency.

When reporters asked him about his ongoing feud with the McCain family and why he continues to lash out at a man who’s been dead for months, Trump simply replied with “I was never a fan of John McCain, and I never will be,” grousing about how “unhappy” he was with McCain’s “disgraceful” decision to kill the Trump administration’s efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

That much is obvious, as Donald Trump began attacking John McCain long before he ever came near the Oval Office. Famously questioning McCain’s military service record in an interview with Megyn Kelly and saying that he “liked veterans who didn’t get captured.”

Since then, the feud between McCain and Trump turned into a back and forth series of quiet criticisms from McCain and rude responses from the President, punctuated by McCain continuing to vote in favor of everything President Trump wanted to do until the crucial vote on the repeal of Obamacare and its replacement with a hollow shell that would kick tens of millions off of their healthcare.

In a dramatic showdown on the Senate floor, McCain voted “no” and provided a final kick in the teeth to one of Trump’s biggest policy objectives — and provoked the animus that has sustained the president’s infamously endless resentment towards the veteran and former Senator.

After spending much of the weekend hurling disses at a dead man and tweeting about the things he sees on television, the President has shown that he has no intention of focusing his attention on any of the issues that he should be expending his energy on, instead preferring to wallow in his self-constructed cocoon of paranoia and spite.
