John McCain is upset about a recent ISIS victory in Ramadi, Iraq. So angry, that he took to name calling when speaking about White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest.
“Bodies are on fire in the streets of Ramadi as we are speaking,” McCain said on Fox News’s “America’s Newsroom.” “[ISIS] is an evil – this is a transcendent evil that the President seems to dismiss it as ‘We’re not losing.’ ”
He then called Earnest an “idiot” for saying Tuesday, ““Are we going to light our hair on fire every time there’s a setback against ISIL?”
Fox News’ Bill Hemmer called out McCain’s name-calling, and the Arizona Republican immediately retracted.
“I’ll retract that,” he said. “It’s infuriating though to hear someone say [that]. That betrays everything that America believes in and stands for.”
The above video clip is reportedly from MSNBC Hardball from 4/23/03. McCain says, “…and I think we’ll find weapons of mass destruction as well.”
According to The Huffington Post: “…a week prior to Bush’s ‘mission accomplished’ speech, John McCain was on Chris Matthews’ Hardball where he praised the president, Rumsfeld, and the strategy and tactics used to go into Iraq.”
Senator John McCain recently responded to Rand Paul stating that other Republicans are Obama “lapdogs” on national defense. He discussed it with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto.
McCain came out swinging, declaring that Senator Paul is the “worst possible candidate of the 20 or so that are running on the most important issue, which is national security.”
