“Republican Sen. John McCain took a veiled swipe at President Donald Trump’s attacks on the media, cautioning that suppressing the press “is how dictators get started.”
The senator went on to talk about preserving “democracy as we know it” by maintaining an “adversarial press.” In contrast, Trump has repeatedly attacked the press for its Leftist bias and called it an “enemy of the American people.”
McCain is fresh back from a trip to Europe where he insulted the Trump adminstration, portraying it as dishonest, and promoted open borders and bringing in vast numbers of more migrants. As a US senator McCain has long advocated flooding the United States with Third World immigrants, driving down wages for native workers and displacing his party’s White conservative base. He also recently opposed Trump’s travel ban on immigrants from several Islamic countries. Additionally, “Democracy as we know it” has been an opportunity for McCain to endlessly advocate war around the world with his BFF Senator Lindsay Graham. The two routinely stand together to advocate war abroad and open borders at home – policies President Trump campaigned strongly against and has opposed during his first month in office.
Note: McCain’s son, who married a mulatto woman, was in the media last year for attacking Alt-Right trolls who objected to Old Navy’s use of interracial couples in its advertising.
