John McCain Attacks Trump’s Incompetence In BLISTERING Op-Ed, This Is Epic

Donald Trump has not only been able to disappoint the entire country on a daily basis, but he’s also pissing off enough members of his own party to ensure the inevitable implosion of the GOP. 

Trump hasn’t even completed his first year in the White House and he already has top Republicans lashing out and speaking up about his obvious incompetence. Recently, Senator John McCain trashed Trump in an op-ed for the Washington Post and didn’t mince his words as he spoke about how inexperienced Trump was.

In his op-ed, McCain insisted on bipartisan cooperation now that Congress is returning from its summer recess – because he knows lawmakers will have to work together if they are to make up for the idiocy that is coming from the Trump administration. McCain wrote:

That has never been truer than today, when Congress must govern with a president who has no experience of public office, is often poorly informed and can be impulsive in his speech and conduct.”

McCain also reminded his colleagues that they ‘are not his subordinates’ and ‘don’t answer to him.’

We must respect his authority and constitutional responsibilities. We must, where we can, cooperate with him. But we are not his subordinates. We don’t answer to him. We answer to the American people. We must be diligent in discharging our responsibility to serve as a check on his power. And we should value our identity as members of Congress more than our partisan affiliation.”

Damn! McCain’s words come at a time when Congress is faced with a big agenda, including government funding, raising the debt ceiling, and several other issues such as tax reform, immigration, and infrastructure. McCain urged his colleagues to follow the legislative process and not succumb to Trump’s antics in order to actually start getting things done:

We won’t settle all our differences that way, but such an approach is more likely to make progress on the central problems confronting our constituents. We might not like the compromises regular order requires, but we can and must live with them if we are to find real and lasting solutions.”

McCain’s op-ed only confirms the fact that no one takes Trump seriously and the Republican Party is recognizing that he’s a major threat to the future of America.
