Senator John McCain must have thought he didn’t anger enough people yesterday when he took to the Senate floor to slam Senator Rand Paul because later the mean old coot doubled down on the insults. According to The Washington Examiner, he called Paul and Ted Cruz “wacko birds” during an interview with HuffPo, saying that they don’t represent mainstream Republicans, as if he has a clue.
“It’s always the wacko birds on right and left that get the media megaphone,” McCain told Huffington Post’s Jon Ward in a story titled “John McCain: Getting Back To Maverick, With An Eye On Retirement.
He added, “I think it can be harmful if there is a belief among the American people that those people are reflective of the views of the majority of Republicans. They’re not.”
Ward wrote: “I asked McCain to clarify who, specifically, he was talking about.”
McCain said, “Rand Paul, Cruz, Amash, whoever.”
