Democratic senator says McCain listed off names of dictators during Trump inaugural

The late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) listed off the names of dictators while watching President Trump's inauguration, according to Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.).

HuffPost reports that during a campaign event in Iowa, the 2020 Democratic presidential contender told the crowd of more than 200 about sitting next to McCain and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) during Trump's inaugural address.

“I sat on that stage between Bernie and John McCain, and John McCain kept reciting to me names of dictators during that speech because he knew more than any of us what we were facing as a nation,” she said. “He understood it. He knew because he knew this man more than any of us did.”

The new story from Klobuchar adds to a list of extensive criticism from McCain, who was one of few Republican senators to regularly oppose the president.

1. Maybe Amy can tell Trump kiss ass Lindsey Graham this anecdote

 

and tell him he should be ashamed of himself for supporting this racist treasonous draft dodging coward, and insulting the memory of Senator McCain in doing so.

2. I have to think Graham is so compromised he is in danger to end up in jail

 

The fact that Graham was "converted" during a golf round tells the story, at least to me.

3. What a stupid statement on Klobuchar's part.

 

Who cares what McCain muttered under his breath during the inauguration. Promoting McCain mythology while running in the Democratic Primary should have gotten her looks of confusion, not support.

"he knew more than any of us what we were facing as a nation" is pure bs. I expected more from Klobuchar.

7. Klobuchar's statement is 100% valid.

 

Maybe you misread or misinterpreted it the first time.
