And I totally agree with the Arizona senator. These Republicans are indeed bastards for putting their party before what’s best for the country.
In a recent interview with The Hugh Hewitt Show, McCain said that he cannot see a scenario where a third party candidate will be successful in challenging Donald Trump
“I just think that the people have spoken,” he said Wednesday on “The Hugh Hewitt Show.” “The fact is, the Republicans have spoken.
“Honestly, I just don’t see this scenario,” he told Hewitt. “I think you and I have heard about this ever since it appeared that Trump was going to win the nomination.
“I just don’t see it happening. One of the things that both parties have done over the years is pretty well set a system up that it’s almost impossible to challenge when the two parties have their candidates.”
McCain also shared an anecdote involving former Rep. Morris Udall (D-Ariz.) in describing his frustrations with democracy.
“I had a beloved friend named Congress Morris Udall, we called him ‘Mo’ and he was a Democrat, one of the most amusing guys that ever lived,” he said.
“He ran against Jimmy Carter for the nomination in 1976,” he said.
“After he had finally lost the last primary, … he said, ‘the people have spoken – the bastards.’ I kind of feel a bit like Mo Udall.”
When McCain ran for president in 2008 his slogan was “Country First.” But the decision by Republicans to let a xenophobe lead their party into the 2016 presidential election shows a sick and obvious allegiance their party over the continued progression of the United States.
