Sen. Romney Rips Into Trump Over McCain Attacks: ‘I Can’t Understand’ Why He Would Disparage A Hero





Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) tore into President Trump for his reignited criticism of the late Sen. John McCain, saying he “can’t understand” how you could “disparage a man as exemplary” “heroic,” and “courageous” as McCain.

“I can’t understand why the President would, once again, disparage a man as exemplary as my friend John McCain: heroic, courageous, patriotic, honorable, self-effacing, self-sacrificing, empathetic, and driven by duty to family, country, and God,” Romney said in a tweet Tuesday.




In an interview with CNN in January, Romney pledged to make his disagreements with the president known.

“Where I disagree, I’ll point that out,” Romney said at the time.

During an Oval Office appearance with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro on Tuesday, Trump railed against McCain’s 2017 Senate vote against a Republican bill that would have repealed the Affordable Care Act.

“I was never a fan of John McCain and I never will be,” Trump said of McCain, who died of brain cancer on Aug. 25, 2018.

“He campaigned on repealing and replacing ObamaCare for years and then he got to a vote and he said ‘thumbs down,’” Trump added. “I think that’s disgraceful, plus there are other things.”

Trump also attacked McCain over the weekend, falsely accusing him of sharing a copy of the Steele dossier on the billionaire’s ties to Russia with the media before the 2016 presidential election.
