McCain: Trump Gave 'One of the Most Disgraceful Performances by an American President in Memory'

From HERE.

Sen. John McCain joined the chorus of outrage over Donald Trump's comments today:
"Today's press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. The damage inflicted by ... Trump's naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate. But it is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake. Trump proved not only unable, but unwilling to stand up to Putin. He and Putin seemed to be speaking from the same script as the president made a conscious choice to defend a tyrant against the fair questions of a free press, and to grant Putin an uncontested platform to spew propaganda and lies to the world." 
This is all well and good. But not a single GOP lawmaker will do anything to actually punish Trump so long as he continues to push their heartless agenda.

Meanwhile, the plot thickens: The Grey Lady reports that a Russian woman who tried to broker a pair of secret meetings between candidate Donald J. Trump and the Russian president, Vladimir V. Putin, during the 2016 presidential campaign, was charged Monday and accused of working with Americans to carry out a secret Russian effort to influence American politics.

She's the same woman who met with the NRA and Donald Trump Jr., which he swears was inconsequential.

John McCain participated in te theft of a Supreme Court seat from Obama and then announced to the public that if Clinton were to win the 2016 election, Scalia's seat would be held open for the entire 4 years of her admin. But, she would NEVER be permitted to seat anyone on the Supreme Court. McCain is no hero.
