Senator John McCain’s polite takedowns of Trump have been a thing of a beauty, especially since they prove just how jealous Trump is of people decidedly better than him. Last night, McCain made not so subtle jabs at Trump’s fascist tendencies when he warned against “spurious nationalism.”
Not surprisingly, the thin-skinned man-baby-in-chief didn’t take the criticism well. Naturally, he did it using his impressive first-grade vocabulary.
Trump warned on Tuesday that he would “fight back” following McCain’s forceful denunciation of Trump’s cynical exploitation of nationalism.
“People have to careful, because at some point I fight back,” Trump told WMAL radio host Chris Plante. “I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very nice. But at some point I fight back, and it won’t be pretty.”
Something tells us that our fake president will try to get out of the fight by complaining about bone spurs. McCain took very little time to shoot back, saying that he has “faced far greater challenges than this,” according to CNN.

Here are the remarks that Senator McCain made at last night’s award ceremony in Philadelphia:
To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters 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 as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.
I wonder which man would know patriotism better? The man who was suffering for years in a North Vietnam prison or the man who was evading the draft due to bad feet. Quite the question of the ages.
