For months now, John McCain has been pretending to harbor no ill will or jealousy towards President Trump while stabbing him in the back and obstructing his agenda given any possible opportunity.
Now, with a subtle tweet, McCain may have finally admitted he’s proud to be President Trump’s chief obstructionist.
The NY Times story McCain chose to promote calls him the “unfettered voice against Trumpism.”
If he had any disagreements to that, he certainly would not have been promoting the article.

- His famous thumbs-down vote on the “skinny repeal” of the Affodable Care Act this summer.
- His opposition to the Graham-Cassidy health care bill.
- His Liberty Medal acceptance speech at the National Constitution Center, in which he said: “To refuse the obligations of international leadership…for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.” Trump took it personally, according to the Times.
- His criticism of the administration for not yet setting out a “plan for success” in Afghanistan, saying “Congress & the American people deserve better.”
- His 60 Minutes interview, in which he said Trump “changes his statements almost on a daily basis. So for me to spend my time trying to analyze what he says, I don’t know.” McCain also said while he was raised to believe in honor, Trump was raised differently.
- His comments that the Trump administration wasn’t being forthcoming on the four American soldiers killed in Niger earlier this month and that getting the information he needs may require a subpoena.
