[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The hullabaloo over the kerfuffle between RINO Senator John McCain and 2016 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has just been dealt a dose of reason from straight-talking Congressman Louie Gohmert, known to be one of the few back in Washington, DC, who tell it like it is, despite ramifications from the political correctness crowd.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Appearing Monday on “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV, Gohmert said that while McCain’s military record should be honored, it shouldn’t give him a livelong pass “to ruin the country.”
“As far as Senator McCain, I have nothing but respect and great sympathy for the pain and suffering he endured … but that doesn’t mean that you get to become a senator and ruin the country,” the outspoken Texan told Malzberg. “It may give you a chance to be a senator but once you’re there, your merits have to stand on their own. In recent years he’s been pro-amnesty, he’s been wrong on so many things,” Gohmert added.
Gohmert said that if the nation had taken McCain’s advice to bomb Syria’s Assad, it would be even worse because the country would have been completely taken over by the even more radical and vicious Islamic State (ISIS).
“He’s been saying, ‘Well gee, if we had bombed in Syria when I said we should have, we wouldn’t be in this mess.’ No, it’d be worse, because he wanted to bomb Assad which would’ve meant we’d turned Syria over to ISIS.”
The feud between RINO McCain and Trump began last week after McCain called conservatives attending Trump’s well-attended Phoenix rally “crazies,” and has refused to apologize, outrageously claiming that the term “crazies” is a “term of endearment.”
Trump responded by calling McCain a “dummy” who was last in his class at Annapolis, soft on illegal immigration, not serving veterans, then dropped the bombshell that he was only a war hero because he was captured in Vietnam.
When Malzberg asked if Trump should apologize, Gohmert responded, “I’m not going to be the auditor. Whether he owes McCain an apology, he said he is a war hero enough times to make up for what he said.”[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]
You just gotta love Louie. He doesn’t mince words and that is a rare quality among politicians in both parties.
