McCain Calls Nuclear Option Proponents ‘Stupid Idiots’

Perpetual GOP malcontent Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called lawmakers “stupid” who believed invoking the so-called “nuclear option” to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court would ultimately improve the Senate, during a gaggle with reporters Tuesday.

The Arizona senator was prompted Tuesday by an unidentified reporter to react to individuals who say “the Senate will be a better place” after the nuclear option is invoked.

“I would like to meet that idiot,” McCain fired back, “I would like to meet that numbskull that would say that, that after 200 years — at least 100 years — of this tradition where the Senate has functioned pretty well, they think it’d be a good idea to blow it up.”

      Poor old, senile, dysfunction, RINO McCain seriously needs to step down and go home. My question is why does anyone even let him open his mouth in public. My other question would be is exactly WHY do people in AZ keep voting for him. I seriously think that him losing the election (and I’m very thankful for that) his mind has never been the same and he feels he needs to vindicate himself but rather than sitting back in his rocking chair, he keeps flapping his jaws to hear himself talk….or should I say blabber.

      Oh! That John McCain, the guy who was hot-dogging on the Forrestal and caused a fire that killed 134 of his shipmates, the guy who was hot-dogging in his A-4 and got shot down, the guy who made propaganda movies for the Viet Cong? None of us, U.S. care about what you think any longer because it is obvious that you don’t think you just say things to get press. He would french kiss a Komodo dragon if it made the AP, or Yahoo News! Arizona, please retire this buffoon. His is a laughing stock and is detrimental to decent, original thought in America.

      Had I known that McCain would be senile in eight years, I would have never voted for him. Of course his pathetic campaign should have been a sign. Sarah Palin was the only bright light in his campaign. Now, I think the best thing for him to do for his country, is to resign, go home and keep his mouth shut.

      The only one that is a stupid idiot and numbskull is McCain himself. The bird man of the Hanoi Hilton should never have been brought back. Being a Viet Nam vet I only wish he would of been left there. Since he sang for the North Vietnamese he deserved to be left behind and now he is so blatantly stupid to call other real Republicans he has proven that to be true. The original voting for Supreme court was a simple majority so lets go back to what it was. McCain needs to be recalled by the people in AZ.

    I am not surprised by McCains ‘surly’ speech of late; in fact, I think for the first time we are getting a clean look at who John McCain really is!

    Oh, and John, once you devolve into calling those you disagree with idiots, stupid and other such ad hoc attacks,you’ve lost the argument. You may also want to think about to whom you are speaking and what they know about you that could land you in the clinker for the rest of your natural life. Tred carefully Johnny boy, whatever ‘they’ have on you is making you fall apart at the frey dear boy. *tsk tsk tsk.

      Once the Committee reports out the nomination, the whole Senate considers it. A simple majority vote is required to confirm or to reject a nominee, but a successful filibuster threat could add the requirement of a supermajority of 60 needed in favor of cloture, which would allow debate to end and force a final vote on confirmation.

      John McCain is why the republican party hasn’t been more effective in accomplishing much in Washington. It isn’t a secret, and hasn’t been for a long time, that the progressive democrats count on John McCain to be on their side working to undermine the republican party. John McCain has become unhinged over Hillary Clinton losing the election and he’s snapping and biting, foaming at the mouth, in a fit of temper. Don’t fret little fellow, Papa Obama still loves you, you can still kiss his ring!

    Not since 2013 has the tradition of a 60-vote mandate been necessary to confirm a U.S. Supreme Court Justice. It changed after the 2012 election when Republicans increased in the Senate and Sen. Harry Reid introduced the Simple Majority (The Nuclear Option) to help Obama appoint another liberal judge to the Supreme Court. See: https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2017/02/01/rush-explainer-the-nuclear-option/

    Traditions change. Ask any liberal. This is the new tradition now.

    Sen. McCain has become as much an opposition to Trump and Conservatives as any liberal. He has lost so much respect.
