President Trump held a rally Tuesday night in Nashville where he campaigned for Rep. Marsha Blackburn who is running for Senate. During the speech he called out the Senator who caused the Obamacare repeal vote to fail. But we all know who it is, Senator John McCain from Arizona.
According to The Daily Wire:
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump slammed Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) during a rally in Nashville, Tennessee, for his vote against repealing Obamacare, something that the president highlighted was a campaign promise from the Arizona senator.
Without using McCain’s name, Trump said, “Then, of course, repeal and replace Obamacare. We had it done, folks. It was done. Then early in the morning, somebody turned their hand in the wrong direction. That cost our country a lot. That was a very, very terrible thing that happened that night.”
“That was a very terrible thing that cost our country $1 trillion in entitlement saving that nobody would have known,” Trump continued.
“It would have given us a good health care plan, and that cost us a lot,” Trump recalled. “Nobody knew that was going to happen, because we had it done. Repeal and replace! And the person who voted that way not only talked repeal and replace! He campaigned on it!”
Trump pointed out how Senator McCain ran for office on repealing Obamacare and how his failure to do so cost the American people greatly.
As we all know from the news, his daughter tried to stop him from making that trip.
My opinion – McCain should not have been able to vote on any policy matter due to his illness which affects his brain and just having surgery and was medicated. What was McConnell thinking? Surely. they have rules to govern someone’s mental state? Again, surely, they wouldn’t let someone vote who was drunk or on drugs? That is the gist of the matter.
