I saw THIS ARTICLE and had to post, even tho it’s Sunday and I usually try to ignore politics.
McCain is now saying “That’s how Dictators got started,” in reference to Trump’s treatment of the media. From the link, and NBC’s MEET THE PRESS and very liberal Chuck Todd:
“McCain, who has sparred with Trump on a number of issues, defended the necessity of the media. “I hate the press. I hate you especially,” the Republican senator joked to Todd. “But the fact is, we need you. We need a free press. We must have it. It’s vital.””
SO: John McCain…is his constant slamming of Trump lately sour grapes? “I WANTED TO BE PRESIDENT!” or is he right?
I’m not sure Trump’s closing down a free media, are you? Obama picked on leftwing journalist at his pressers much more often than not; did McCain see that as a threat to the media? Obama criticized and said really belittling things like “don’t get your news there” about FOX a LOT, did McCain criticize that? Is “fake news” something we need to recover from or is it a Trump ‘fake story’?
