Trump Gets CPAC Crowd to Boo John McCain: ‘What a Mess’
President Trump went after Sen. John McCain in his CPAC speech on Friday, hitting the Arizona Republican for voting against his senate colleagues last year when they tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
After cycling through his usual greatest hits in the speech, Trump invoked the infamous moment when McCain appeared on the Senate floor and gave a fatal thumbs down to the doomed attempt to eliminate Obamacare. Trump didn’t call out McCain by name, though he made it incredibly obvious who he was talking about — and the crowd loudly booed.
“Remember, one person walked into a room, when he was supposed to go this way, and he said he was going this way, and he walked in ,and he went this way and everyone said, ‘What happened? What was that all about?’ Boy, oh, boy. Who was that? I don’t know. I don’t want to be controversial, so I won’t use his name. Okay. What a mess. But, it is all happening anyway. It is all happening anyway.”
So much for what he told Meghan McCain about not attacking her cancer-stricken veteran father anymore.
