John McCain Denounces President Trump Abroad

In what might be the absolute lowest move he has stooped to in his campaign against Donald Trump, McCain launched a thinly-veiled attack on the brand of patriotism that the president is advocating for. Speaking while taking part in a security conference in Munich, the senator pandered to the most retrograde elements of both the American and European left by criticizing President Trump in all but name:

“In recent years, this question would invite accusations of hyperbole and alarmism; not this year,” McCain said. “If ever there were a time to treat this question with a deadly seriousness, it is now.”

In case there was any doubt that this was about Trump. Here’s what followed:

  • “[The founders of the Munich conference] would be alarmed by an increasing turn away from universal values and toward old ties of blood and race and sectarianism.”
  • “They would be alarmed by the hardening resentment we see towards immigrants and refugees and minority groups — especially Muslims.”
  • “They would be alarmed by the growing inability — and even unwillingness — to separate truth from lies.”
  • “They would be alarmed that more and more of our fellow citizens seem to be flirting with authoritarianism and romanticizing it as our moral equivalent.”

That’s Trump, Trump, Trump and Trump.”
