Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has no love lost for the President. He’s held his nose and gone along with his party’s agenda for far too long, but now that that the wheels are coming off the Trump train, McCain is relishing the chance to take a few shots at the draft-dodging coward who mocked him for being shot down.
Which is why McCain took this morning’s appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to take some cheap shots at our embattled disgrace of a POTUS, mocking him for his speech at the Coast Guard Academy yesterday complaining about how he had been treated “worse” than any other politician ever.
“First of all, I’ve been worse treated than President Trump has, so let’s be sure that we know about that” joked McCain.

McCain went on to reaffirm his confidence in the Senate Intelligence Committee’s ability to investigate the Russian interference in our election that put Trump into power in the first place.
John McCain’s jet was shot down over North Vietnam on Oct. 26, 1967. He was taken prisoner and subjected to torture multiple times over the next few years. It’s safe to say that McCain has been treated much, much worse than spoiled man-child Donald Trump, who was born with a silver spoon jammed squarely in his mouth and has had everything he’s ever wanted handed to him on a platter.
The avalanche of scandalous revelations that have engulfed the Trump administration shows that if Trump is feeling victimized now, he hasn’t seen anything yet.
