McCain: I'm 'Almost Speechless' Over Report Of Trump's Remarks To Russians

Source: Talking Points Memo



By ESME CRIBB Published MAY 21, 2017 11:44 AM

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Sunday said he was “almost speechless” about a report that President Donald Trump disparaged former FBI Director James Comey during a meeting with Russian officials in the Oval Office.

“I’m almost speechless because I don’t know why someone would say something like that,” McCain said on “Fox News Sunday.”

The New York Times reported on Friday that Trump expressed relief about Comey’s termination to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak. According to the report, Trump called Comey a “real nut job” and said he had “faced great pressure because of Russia” that was “taken off” by his decision to fire Comey.

The White House did not deny the accuracy of those quotes.

McCain on Sunday called Lavrov “nothing but a propagandist” and “the stooge of a thug and a murderer” who “had no business in the Oval Office.” With regard to Comey’s firing, McCain said he could not explain Trump’s decision.

“Mr. Comey was highly respected and highly regarded, so I can’t explain it. I don’t think it was a smart thing to do,” he said. “Honestly, I cannot explain a lot of the President’s actions.”

And the Russian probably have a good chuckle every day because they did the castrating.

2. He usually has a couple of words

"Troubled" or "Concerned", followed by doing nothing and enabling whatever was troubling him.

6. And yet, it's a near certainty that he'll do absolutely nothing.

I'm not sure how someone goes from being a war criminal to an actual traitor, but somehow McCain figured it out.

Trump told him he wasn't a war hero. This is not awfully different. Trump can devalue anything to aggrandize himself.

Hey Mclame - THAT is how he talks. Have you not been paying attention? He is "street" - rude, crude, and abrupt. He spouts endless fabrications, exaggerations, and lies and his "base" likes him that way, and people like you cower in the corner and support his ass.

Doh! Squatter-in-so-called-chief has no scruples. How these republicants spew loads of stupid hovno. The 's' word in Czechoslovak of which I yam a proud derivative. (My ancestry, not the 's' word!)

31. Say, senator, you could rectify that. It's not as if you're never on the shows...

You have every opportunity to not be "speechless" about it.

Do we need to say "please"? Get cracking!

37. mccain gets all his exercise by walking . . . back.

Gutless.

He loves the press he gets when he acts all mavericks in front of cameras. Back in Congress, he kisses mcdonnell's ring (ass) and falls in line.

What a sorry excuse for an American hero.
