It seems every time I want to throw some support John McCain’s way, he inevitably screws the pooch before my fingers hit the keyboard.
Arizona Sen. John McCain blasted a report on the administration’s new Syria posture just hours after revealing he had a cancerous brain tumor. McCain’s statement faulted the administration for reportedly ending a covert program begun during the Obama administration to provide arms to Syrian rebels battling President Bashar al-Assad.
‘If these reports are true, the administration is playing right into the hands of Vladimir Putin,’ the Armed Services Committee chairman said in a statement.
The statement served as a reminder that so long as he is in the Senate, McCain will continue to warn against the administration’s proposed move toward Moscow.
As someone who has had two – albeit minor – skin cancer surgeries, I sincerely wish McCain fully recovers. Regarding the senator’s “OMG TRUMP-RUSSIA!” statement, I’ll hold my tongue.
