It is not a mystery to us. We know when we see honesty, morals, respect, personal strength, honor, and decency in Sen. McCain. 

We also realize that it is not a mystery that trump does not possess any of those attributes.

It will be fun watching his next hate-fest rally. Will he have the guts to stop the chants if they begin again, or will he let it go on? Apparently he was warned about top donors wanting that stuff to stop.


Warned by top donors ....? 

That's surprising ........ I would think that Putin and his oligarchs would embrace that sort of hate filled behavior further dividing Americans.

The late Republican Sen. John McCain's defense of then-Sen. Barack Obama from a racist voter at a 2008 town hall is going viral after President Donald Trump did not stop racism at his Wednesday evening rally in North Carolina.

At the rally, Trump did nothing to stop his supporters from chanting "send her back" for 13 seconds, referring to Rep. Ilhan Omar, one of four progressive lawmakers of color that Trump told to "go back" to their "broken and crime infested" countries in a series of racist tweets on Sunday. Omar was born in Somalia, while the three other lawmakers were born in the US.

This is why the gutless draft-dodger Bonespurs WUSSolini hates John McCain -

McCain makes tRump look like the sniveling infantile racist he always will be.

 

The Mahatma Gandhi had 7 blunders of the World that lead to violence

 

1. Wealth without work

2. Pleasure without Conscience

3. Knowledge without Character

4. Commerce without Morality

5. Science without Humanity

6. Worship without Sacrifice

7. Politics without Principle

 

Anyone who cannot see tRump and the GOP are the epitome of all 7 cannot see.

Considering that Trump falsely said he hated the chants after GOP members relayed to Pence during a breakfast meeting the next day that the chanting was unacceptable and disturbing and Mikey needed to talk to Donnie, it remains to be seen.  Of course, the day after disavowing his chanting base besties, Donnie was calling them 'great patriots'.

 

Top donors may have more impact because that means $$$.

 

I say we all just channel John McCain.  May he always hover over and haunt Trump.

Based on the severe lack of condemnation from Republicans for Trump and the rabid crowd at his racist chanting rally, I gotta believe that Trump would lose 100% of his base as well as the entire Republican Party!

Agreed ..... And contrary to Trump's vile hateful accusations against McCain and his military service, McCain was indeed a true American hero ..... from his military service for our country to his vote stopping Republican elimination of health care for 32 million Americans ........ placing COUNTRY BEFORE PARTY!!!

IMHO Republican John McCain had Integrity , something that is missing with today's Far Right. He called Balls and Strikes fairly and had a Good Heart. 

 

To defend Obama as he was running against him , speaks volumes !! You would never hear a Gentleman like McCain shout " Lock her up ".

Just think.  McCain shutting down a racist is going viral on Twitter, knowing you-know-who most assuredly has seen it.  Oh, the irony.  There is a God.
