‘Screw Them’: John McCain Rebukes Critics of Possible FBI Role For Joe Lieberman


Senator John McCain was apparently in a fiesty mood on Thursday. Hours after calling for throwing the Turkish ambassador “the hell out of the United States of America,” the Republican politician had additional blunt words for the liberal critics of his friend, Joe Lieberman.

“Joe Lieberman has more experience than all of my Dem. colleagues combined,” McCain said to PBS correspondent Lisa Desjardins. “So screw them. And you can quote me.”

The Arizona senator was answering Desjardins’ question about Democratic senators’ concerns over President Donald Trump nominating Lieberman to be FBI director. The former Connecticut senator was among four top officials interviewed by the President for the law enforcement job.
