John McCain’s Outburst Leaves All Americans Scratching Their Heads

By

Sen. John McCain has turned out to be many things in recent years, things we never expected from him previously.

Most notably, he’s become quite possibly the biggest thorn in the side of the Republican Party, and of President Trump, in particular.

McCain’s gone so far as to reveal himself to be a possible closet Democrat, and a bonafide hypocrite who will promise his constituents a repeal of Obamacare, only to go back on that promise in order to score a political uppercut against the Trump Administration.

But, few would call McCain less than patriotic, even if he’s a bit misguided.

The man’s a former prisoner of war, after all. A decorated military veteran.

And yet, in a speech to the U.S. Naval Academy this week, McCain seemed to take a decidedly un-patriotic position.

In a rambling address that focused on smearing President Trump (without calling him out by name), McCain at first appeared to be playing on patriotic themes.

But then, in an effort to compare Trump to the isolationists that ruled between World War I and World War II, McCain stated:

“…the American example and American leadership are indispensable to securing a peaceful and prosperous future. Our failure to remain engaged in Europe and enforce the hard-won peace of 1918 had made that clear. There could be no more isolationism, no more tired resignation — no more ‘America First.”


So, the American government shouldn’t put America first?

It’s just a silly notion no matter which way you slice it.

Every government in the world exists to put its own people and nation first. That’s the purpose of government – to look out for the best interests of ITS citizens.

But McCain’s blunder goes deeper than that.

It demonstrates a complete failure to understand what Trump means by “America First.”

Trump, like many true conservatives, isn’t an isolationist. He wants to “Make America Great Again” by focusing on “America First” so that American can TRULY lead the world.
