During a ceremony where he received the Liberty Medal on Monday, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) stated:
McCain said, “To fear the world we’ve organized and led for 3/4s of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain the last, best hope of earth, for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism, cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is an unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.”No doubt he's taking a back-handed swipe at Trump and Trump supporters. Other than that, I'm not even sure about what he's actually saying - and I doubt he is either.
It appears that he's trying to say putting the interests of America and the citizens of this country first is somehow wrong.
He's built an entire career by touting his service to this country that, at best, is "spurious."
John McCain is the poster boy for term limits. He's been kicking around the body politic for about 35 years. Politics should not be a career and a gateway to enormous wealth.
I will say that I find it very disturbing when people hope for a speedy and painful death due to his brain tumor. That is a perversion of the virtue of Hope. If you find it impossible to actually pray for him, at least just pray for God's will to be done and leave it at that.
