Rand Paul Blasts McCain’s Comments On Trump

GOP Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul blasted Arizona Sen. John McCain for his comments criticizing President Donald Trump’s approach with the press during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday.

McCain voiced opposition to Trump’s alleged ongoing attacks on the fourth estate while appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press” earlier in the day, saying, that’s how “how dictators get started.”

Paul said McCain’s comments may be fueled more by personal issues with the president than valid concern.

“This is colored by John McCain’s disagreement with President Trump,” Paul said. “Everything that he says about the president is colored by his own personal dispute he has got running with President Trump — and it should be taken with a grain of salt because John McCain is the guy that has advocated for war everywhere.”

    John McCain is dangerously out of his freaking mind. Coo-coo!! Koo-Koo!! He needs to be ‘retired’ to the old folks home, and all his means of communicating his inane and insane garbage to the outside world need to be removed completely, so that he has no access to them. John McCain is totally out of touch with reality.

  • justinwachin says:

    Dr. Paul is once again showing why those of us in Kentucky support him. He is able to easily plow through the bull and get to the truth of a matter.

    Sen. McCain needs to realize that most of the press were Obama supporters. They were part of his propaganda team. Their coverage of the previous president bordered on worship. President Trump doesn’t enjoy that same luxury. The media doesn’t worship him and most hope he doesn’t succeed.

    My suggestion is to ignore the media. The president seems to be doing a good job of connecting directly with Americans. You don’t need teleprompter readers to interpret what this president means.

      I wondered if you were from Kentucky. I’m a Hoosier myself. One and two on election reporting.

      1. justinwachin says:

        I live in western Kentucky in Jackson’s Purchase, the area of the state which is west of the LBL.

        Sen. Paul is well suited to become Kentucky’s senior senator when Mitch retires. I’ve had the chance to meet both men on several occasions. Both are true gentlemen and both are fairly intelligent.

        1. William Bilyeu says:

          I live in southern Indiana. I assume you are referring to the Pennyroyal. I admire both of Kentucky’s Senators. I believe Senator Todd Young will be equally qualified. This area of Indiana is known as the Pocket. Hopefully, there will be many more qualified United States Representatives and Senators in two years. I am impressed with how intelligent you are; in spite of Hoosier and Kentuckian jokes, I find more intelligent people here than elsewhere. Keep up the good work!

          1. justinwachin says:

            Kentucky’s Pennyrile region ends at the Tennessee River. The Jackson Purchase area is to the west of the river. This is the part of Kentucky which hangs down a little below the bottom margin of the rest of the state. This section of Kentucky was purchased from the Chickasaw Indians by Andrew Jackson, on behalf of the United States.

          2. William Bilyeu says:

            It would be nice to meet sometime. I bet we could have some lively conversations.

          3. justinwachin says:

            It may just happen. I’m surprised at how many people I meet as I travel around.

          4. William Bilyeu says:

            I travel a bit, too. Have visited all States, except Alaska and Hawaii.

  • maxx says:

    I have to thank Paul for standing up for Trump this time, but he is still a dufuss like his father,

  • Tiger says:

    Thank you Paul again you show sound mind and common sense. Keep it up.

    1. The Redhawk says:

      My knid of MAN! and now McVAIN office is attempting to “explain” what MCVain really meant…YEAH more Liberal Double SPEAK”

      1. Tiger says:

        McCain and Graham need to be investigated by Trump for the money they have taken and connections to Soros.

  • chocopot says:

    McCain has become senile. The media have been lying about Trump and making up foul stories about him since he entered the race. They are deserving of nothing but contempt.

  • wiseone2 says:

    Let’s get the TREASON proceedings started, & throw in that other pain-in-the-ass joker from South Carolina, Lindsey Graham!!

  • Rodney Steward says:

    There’s some reason why this POS keeps going in, and think it might be a voting issue but he is a NWO guy and talks of it often and is also on Soros’s payroll and explains a lot!!!!

  • CBUJAN says:

    We have to get rid of McCain he is not doing the republican party no good. He is a rino of the worst kind.

  • GreatDayNow says:

    Nice to see someone (Sen. Rand Paul in this case) come to Trump’s defense for a change. Hope this happens more and more, and soon. Tired of all the criticism so far after only a month in office.

  • The Redhawk says:

    Thank you RAND PAUL,,,speak up when IDIOTS Babble like Mc Vain

    1. maxx says:

      McCain and his “puff” buddy Lindsay Graham should both be put into a gunny sack and tossed into a river. Both are Rino traitors.

      1. The Redhawk says:

        May be a “blanket party” before the Gunny sack…..it might give them an Attitude adjustment Education in REAL AMERCAN

  • itsfun says:

    McCain is just a liberal. Why doesn’t he officially join Schumer and that bunch? He is just pissed off because President Trump doesn’t kiss his hind end.

    1. maxx says:

      He is pissed at Trump because Trump called him out on the hero story. So many Vietnam vets have posted on many sites all setting the record straight. The same has been happening concerning John Kerry. Three self inflicted Purple Hearts??

      1. itsfun says:

        People like that are a disgrace to every American.

  • Jean Langford M. says:


  • randy jackson says:

    McCain is a faux person.
    He’s really a maggot in disguise.

  • cathylovesyou says:

    Mccain has done nothing in the last 75 years in Congress, he is a thorn in the Republican party, thank God he didn’t become President, but look what we got a Communist/Muslim. Phoenix vote this man out, he is Dennis the Menace

    1. mudguy1 says:

      No, I would not say that McCain has done nothing. He has done more damage to the Republicans that any Democrat. He is the main reason there is NO unity in the GOP. Way past time for him to go pound Arizona sand.

      1. maxx says:

        He only votes with the Republican side when it is inevitable that they will prevail. If it will be a close vote he always votes with the democommies.

  • Defend America says:

    McCain needs to sit down and shut up. McCain you need to become a better man than you have been as of late. Sincerely hope your state kicks you out of office you have become a traitor to the :-)Conservative party.

    1. The Redhawk says:

      Bulls Eye !!!

  • burns says:

    McCain is a senile old prick with a Hillary type agenda, who doesn’t realize his brain no longer works like it may have 60 years ago. These old Geezers, need to be given an aptitude test, Gauranteed 80% would fail a high school level test.

  • Ramon1710 . says:

    Hanoi “Temper Tantrum” McCain needs to look in the mirror, if not at Bathhouse Barry’s flood of illegal executive orders if he wants to see dictatorial tyranny.

    1. Dee says:

      That was spot on !

    2. Rodney Steward says:

      Mc, was one of Obama’s favorite lap dawgs!

      1. maxx says:

        He should have been forced to sit on the democrat side of the chamber because that id where his black heart is.

        1. Rodney Steward says:


  • The_Frog_Prince says:

    The best thing we can hear from McShame is silence.

  • charles becker says:

    Citizens of Arizona, PLEASE recall this RINO!

    1. Dee says:

      They say they had no choice between him again or a lousy democrat but someone out there needs to step up next time around to Get him Out !

      1. mudguy1 says:

        Yes they did Dr. Kelli Ward in the primaryies . And McShame ran a smear campaign against her like the Democrats do.

        1. Glenda Jordan says:

          And johnnyboy was backed by soros!! Opensecrets.org

          1. maxx says:

            And the democrat crossover voters. They need McCain right where he is.

          2. Glenda Jordan says:

            Exactly right maxx….I’m in a blue state and I know many of the “ol’ school” dems and elder population here would never vote for the likes of a loony lizzie but wouldn’t hesitate for jonjon..shame on both

  • Jmanjo says:

    He should be supporting the President but instead he runs around shooting his mouth off! He lost his election and Trump won his. He should be helping Republicans do some good stuff but instead puts a wrench into everything! Turkey!

    1. maxx says:

      If AZ ever kicks him out he will come back and run as a democrat and will win.

    1. Anouk says:

      Well done! Thanks.

    2. The Redhawk says:

      Another Reason that WE GOT TO GET TERM LIMIT VOTED IN….His OFF shore attack on the US and the CHOSEN PRESIDENT that People Voted Legally and Mc Vain calling him a Dictator??? PH:EASE get this TOOL in a Padded ROOM!!!! Give him DEPENDS and a NURSE!!!
      ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES and having Lost to an Amateur he never learned apparently!

      That is what Mc Cain has turned into , the Republican Clown .

  • C. W. Good says:

    Oh boy, John McCain the faux hero. I wish the good folks of Arizona would retire his rear end. I went to Vietnam twice and knew a bunch of heroes, John McCain was NOT one of them. I’ve even heard reports that he collaborated with the NVA and caused a lot of his fellow prisoners to be beaten severely. That is not the definition of a hero. I wonder if he knows how many of us grunts would have loved to fly around and drop bombs. He got to fly a mission and then go back to his cozy home in Danang or wherever it was that he laid his head. He certainly didn’t have to use his pack for a pillow. I don’t even think he had a pack. Wonder how he would have lasted going on an operation with 50 to 75 lbs. on his back. Not long I bet. Comeone Arizona retired his worthless ass.

    1. Ramon1710 . says:

      McCain is still in collaboration with the enemy. It may be a different enemy now, but John doesn’t care as long as he’s paid.

      1. mudguy1 says:

        As a POW McLame’s name was Canary and it hasn’t changed.

    2. Paul Morris says:

      I live here and have voted against this RINO every time. He has the backing of the political machine and that is hard to beat. Kelly Ward is a much better choice!!

      1. Glenda Jordan says:

        $$$ from soros certainly helped jonjon as well! Opensecrets.org

      2. itsfun says:

        President Trump beat the political machine, so keep trying.

      3. maxx says:

        He won against Ward due to democrat voters crossing over, even if they have to reregister as repuklicans. That goes on all over the country.
