Twitter users just found a brilliant way to use John McCain to troll Trump on his birthday

Seventy-three years ago today the world was cursed by the birth of the man who would go on to become the worst president in the history of the United States. While the birthday of a president should be a time to celebrate them and their accomplishments, with Donald Trump it feels a lot closer to a day of mourning. Imagine how much better this world would be if his mother had never given birth to such an ogre.

Since most sane Americans have no reason to throw a party for the man actively working to undermine our democracy, many of them found a clever way to troll him instead by getting the hashtag #JohnMcCainDay trending on Twitter, a move sure to infuriate a president who feuded with and despised the late senator.

Trump has proven incapable of shaking McCain’s legacy, so consumed is he with insecurity and jealousy when he compares himself to the beloved war hero. Recently, the White House requested that the U.S.S. McCain be moved out of sight for Trump’s visit to Japan. Apparently, even there the mere sight of the senator’s surname is too much for our thin-skinned, craven president.

The tweets that came pouring out for #JohnMcCain day mostly consisted of an outpouring of love and appreciation for McCain who — even if one disagreed with his many problematic policies — was an undeniable patriot, a man who loved this country in a way Trump never has and never will. The late senator’s life was worth celebrating, and in many ways, this country is better for him having lived and served. The same cannot and will not ever be said of Donald J. Trump.

While McCain Day is for now just a Twitter trend, a chance to remember him, it’s not inconceivable that one day it could become an official national holiday. One thing that is certain is that there will never be a “Trump Day,” not unless it’s created to celebrate the day he’s finally booted out of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
