McCain Slammed, Health Questioned After Announcing “New Strategy For Success” In Afghanistan

McCain looked sickly at his August 2017 Facebook "town hall" event

Earlier this week, Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson took heat for speculating that Senator John McCain’s battle with brain cancer might have been a factor in his bizarre vote against the “skinny” Obamacare repeal bill last month. Members of the public now think Johnson might have been on target after McCain announced his “strategy” for continuing the unpopular war in Afghanistan.

McCain filed an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that offers a “new strategy for success for the ongoing war in Afghanistan.”

McCain, who is referred to as “Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS)” on, a popular Republican website, was critical of President Donald Trump in his Afghanistan announcement. McCain claims “America’s national security interests in Afghanistan is a decision of the highest importance, one that should be subjected to rigorous scrutiny and debate within our government.”

Trump has been reluctant to support a new troop surge in the war that has dragged on for nine years.

‎White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon tweeted “Even Barack Obama saw through John McCain’s hypocrisy” along with a video of then-Senator Barack Obama debating McCain in 2008. In the video Obama states, “Senator McCain suggests that somehow, you know, I’m green behind the ears and, you know, I’m just spouting off, and he’s somber and responsible. Senator McCain, this is the guy who sang, “Bomb, bomb, bomb Iran,” who called for the annihilation of North Korea. That I don’t think is an example of speaking softly. This is the person who, after we had — we hadn’t even finished Afghanistan, where he said, “Next up, Baghdad.”

The McCain family turned up at a Diamondbacks game on Thursday night. The empty seats surrounding the clan drew attention. One Arizona resident tweeted in response: “No one wants to hang with him in AZ. We’re too well aware of his level of betrayal.”

  1. Hey little Johnnie. Keep your mouth shut, do your chemo and enjoy what time you have left. But no….. you are such an arrogant ass that you think you opinion and self worth are more important than the entire country. You have simply have become a senile old man that everyone laughs at.

  2. Mr. Campaign Finance Reformer that spent $22 million defeating J.D. Hayworth:

    It is time to retire! Enjoy life! There are things more important than even being a senator.

  3. Only death will shut McCain up.

    In time, he can talk God’s ear off. Sadly no one here on earth really still cares to hear what he has to say anymore.

    • With his behavior I am not so sure it’s God whose ear he will be talking off. It just may be a bit warmer too.

    The Maverick strikes again. I wished the rhino would go home and allow his successor to be appointed. There is plenty of dignity in that decision. Instead he is going to make this painful not only for himself. But the whole country and the state of Arizona too. How arrogant is that? And now he wants to flex his committee chair muscle and act like he knows better than the entire military. Simply a deflection from his disappointing vote on Obamacare. We suffer while he catches a baseball game.
