Trump Allows McCains To Use Air Force 2, Then They Make Him Regret It In Sick Retaliation

Published

on

I have not watched the memorials for Senator John McCain (R-AZ). I’d sooner have a root canal. But it’s been wall-to-wall coverage on Fox News for the departed senator… you almost can’t avoid it.

I have watched videos of some of those who have spoken in memoriam for McCain. One of them was his daughter Meghan McCain, who I have never warmed to. Now I remember why.

As you may have heard, President Trump was basically disinvited from McCain’s funeral. I believe Mike Pence went in his stead. Regardless, Trump issued his condolences to the McCain family and flew the flag at half-staff in honor of McCain’s passing.

President Trump granted the request of the McCain family to use Air Force 2 to transport McCain’s body to DC. And how was he repaid for his kindness and respect for McCain? With sick retaliation by Meghan McCain during the memorial.

She was not alone of course. Others got their jabs in as well. I find it exceedingly ironic that Senator John McCain’s body was flown to Washington DC on an aircraft that had to be approved by President Trump.

Barack Obama got in his two cents during his eulogy for McCain: “President Obama clearly was addressing Donald Trump without mentioning his name, talking about politics today being small, mean, petty and grounded in insult. He talked about “phony controversy” and “manufacturing outrage.” And, as Ivanka Trump looked on, he talked about certain people appearing “brave and tough” when they are actually steeped in fear.”

President Trump did not take credit for the gesture either. But the bitterness and hatred for Trump were on full display during Meghan’s comments on her father’s life.

Silly me… I thought it would have been appropriate to talk solely about John McCain’s life, his accomplishments and the love his family and friends had for him. It is not appropriate, however, to use such an occasion to strike out at McCain’s political enemies.

Air Force 2 is typically reserved for the vice president or the first lady’s travel. Certainly, the use of the transport was not something ‘owed’ to McCain and the family was not just entitled to the use of it. The ingratitude here just reeks.

TMZ reported: “President Trump announced earlier this week he had approved military transport for McCain, saying, “At the request of the McCain family, I have also authorized military transportation of Senator McCain’s remains from Arizona to Washington, D.C., military pallbearers and band support, and a horse and caisson transport during the service at the United States Naval Academy.’”

More on Air Force 2 from AZ Central:

“The plane, most commonly recognized when it is serving as Air Force Two, is a Boeing C-32A. It is the military version of the well-known Boeing 757.

“The 89th Airlift Wing, based out of Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, is responsible for the aircraft as well as Air Force One. McCain’s body will be flown to the base, according to a representative of the airlift wing.

“The United States has been using a fleet of eight C-32s since 1998. (This year, the administration of President Donald Trump included $6 million in the federal budget to study replacements for the aircraft.)

“This specific plane has carried the body of a significant figure at least once before, according to the Air Force. In 2001, this plane transported the body of United States Marine and Central Intelligence Agency Operations Officer Johnny Michael Spann. He was the first American killed in combat during the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan.”

With President Trump doing the right thing out of respect for the McCain family, you’d think they would leave the vitriol at home. Nope. Meghan McCain delivered a bitter, angry and sad eulogy that bashed President Trump and it was not pretty.

From 100PercentFedUp.com:

“BITTERNESS IS A HORRIBLE THING TO PASS ON…

“It’s sad to see the eulogy of a father turn into a bitter slam of our president. The one thing that comes to mind when watching the eulogy of Senator John McCain by his daughter is the old saying, “Like father, like daughter”.

“Meghan McCain used what could have been a beautiful moment to celebrate her father to slam President Trump in a bitter-sounding rebuke of his presidency. It’s sad to say but it’s probably what her father would have wanted anyway.

“McCain said she asked her father what she should say at his eulogy and he responded with, “Show them how tough you are.” That advice is not what this occasion was the time and place for… but this is John McCain’s final stand beyond the grave and he knew his brash daughter would pull through for him…Like father, like daughter…

“Meghan McCain, speaking at her father’s funeral: “The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great.”

“Time and place matter… especially with funerals. The National Cathedral was packed with Trump cabinet members and with the president’s daughter. Was it the time or the place to have a virtual temper tantrum at the church where your father’s funeral is being held?

“Classless, Bitter and Sad… Like father, like daughter.”

I don’t have much to add to that. It was well said and right on the mark here.

Libs Heads Explode Over What Trump ‘Dared’ To Say To Hurricane Victim – LOVE IT!

Published

on

Now I think we can all collectively say we have now heard everything from the left.

The left wing in this country is trying to take President Trump to task over a joke. Yes, folks, a harmless joke in a situation where it was much needed.

Left wing sites are now reporting that while President Trump was surveying the storm ravaged area in North Carolina he questioned a man if the boat that had been shipwrecked behind his house was his, according to a White House pool report.

“At least you got a nice boat out of the deal,” Trump stated when the man responded that the once luxurious boat was not his. Trump then continued to say that he thought the boat was “incredible” and detailed that under the law it might now belong to the owners of the home.

So otherwise he was trying to make like out of a dire situation in order to lift the spirits of the home’s owner. Something that is wonderful to do onto itself since that person had lost everything.

Here is more on this via The Political Voice:

President Trump reportedly told a victim of Hurricane Florence on Wednesday that he “got a nice boat out of the deal”about a large yacht that had crashed ashore during the harrowing storm.

While strolling an area in North Carolina devastated by the storm, Trump questioned a man if the boat that had been shipwrecked behind his house was his, according to a White House pool report.

“At least you got a nice boat out of the deal,” Trump stated when the man responded that the once luxurious boat was not his.

Trump continued to say that he thought the boat was “incredible” and detailed that under the law it might now belong to the owners of the home.

Trump made the remarks while in New Bern, N.C, a town that was struck by Florence when it made the first landfall late last week.

Trump earlier this Wednesday informed local officials and residents in the Carolinas that his administration will stand by recovery efforts “100 percent.”

“We will be there 100 percent, and all of the folks from the federal government that are around the table, they’re confirming it,” he said during a briefing at the Marine Corps Air Station in Cherry Point, N.C. “That’s why we started early, and we’ll be here late.”

Trump arrived in New Bern in the early afternoon Wednesday before heading to South Carolina to look over the areas of the state affected by the storm.

Here’s how Americans reacted:

Isn’t it about time we all take a deep breath and start to see that sometimes we just need a sense of humor in order to get by? Those of us on the right have a sense of humor, if not we wouldn’t have been able to survive 8 long years of the community organizer Barack Hussein Obama as our president. But the left just can’t seem to get over the fact that Hillary Clinton lost the election to Donald Trump. So they try day after to do take out our president.

Here is a reminder from Business Insider of how a real American loving President should react under a crisis such as a hurricane:

“President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump announced on Wednesday a personal donation of $1 million to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. The money will go to twelve organizations, including the Red Cross, Salvation Army, and the ASPCA.

Hurricane Harvey, which ripped through Houston and parts of the Texas coastline, covered much of the city in water, destroying homes and displacing thousands of residents.

The Trumps visited Texas during the immediate aftermath of the storm, where they met with officials and oversaw relief work conducted by both federal agencies and volunteer groups.

The White House notes that many of the organizations the Trumps donated to were recommended by members of the White House press corps.

Here’s where the money is going:
Red Cross — $300,000
Salvation Army — $300,000
Reach Out America — $100,000
Samaritan’s Purse — $100,000
ASPCA — $25,000
Catholic Charities — $25,000
Direct Relief — $25,000
Habitat for Humanity — $25,000
Houston Humane Society — $25,000
Operation Blessing — $25,000
Portlight Inclusive Disaster Strategies — $25,000
Team Rubicon — $25,0000

Trump landed in hot water during the 2016 campaign when reporters dug into his claims that he donated $1 million to the fundraiser he held for veterans in lieu of attending a Republican debate that year. Reporters had a hard time confirming how much money has actually been distributed to veterans groups.”

Kavanaugh’s Accuser About To Cash In BIG TIME And Hasn’t Even Testified!

Published

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by DownTrend

Christine Blasey Ford has made some serious allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that she can neither back up or or is even willing to testify about. The democrats have used these unfounded unprovable allegations in a attempt to derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the high court, because they don’t have the votes to stop him. As if this story wasn’t already dumb enough, some rando has started a GoFundMe campaign and you just know liberals will pour money into this ridiculous thing.

Ford claims that Kavanaugh and a friend sexually assaulted her at a party in the 1980’s. She doesn’t know when this supposedly happened or where or how she even ended up at the party. They only witness to this alleged crime says it never happened and there are tons of inconsistencies with this vague story. She is also a registered democrat and liberal activist with a bone to pick with Kavanaugh’s family.

Ford was invited to testify before the the Senate Judiciary committee to tell her story, but she has declined. She also claims that she is now getting death threats and has had to go underground for the safety or her family.

That brings us to this silly GoFundMe campaign:

Due to death threats, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford (who uses “Dr. Blasey” professionally) and her family have had to leave their residence and arrange for private security. Let’s create a fund to cover her security expenses, to do just a bit to make it easier for women in her position to come forward despite great risks. If we raise more than Dr. Blasey needs, extra funds will go to women’s organizations and/or into an account to cover similar costs incurred in comparable situations.

The person who started this campaign doesn’t even know Ford, but felt the need to do something:

I do not know Dr. Blasey personally but will contact her via her former high school, Holton Arms, to inform her of this fundraising appeal and to make arrangements to transfer funds to Dr. Blasey.

I am a professor of law at Georgetown University who has raised money formally and informally for other causes over the years. My reason for starting this fundraiser is to make concrete the power of collective action in providing security, and therefore support, for Dr. Blasey’s willingness to contribute to a thorough, fair vetting of a nominee for Supreme Court Justice.

Fair vetting? Ford made an outrageous accusation on the eve of Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote and then refused to testify on these things she can’t provide any evidence of. That’s completely unfair and any law professor could attest to that.

Oh wait, it turns out the person who started this bullshit GoFundMe campaign really is a law professor at Georgetown Law. Here’s her bio on Women’s Media Center:

Heidi Li Feldman is Professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center, with a courtesy appointment in the Philosophy Department at Georgetown University. She has written major articles on tort law and on legal ethics. Her scholarly expertise includes the U.S. civil justice system more generally. Currently, Dr. Feldman’s scholarship focuses on how and whether U.S. cities and states can protect civil rights and strengthen civil society. Read More
