It’s getting harder and harder to believe that John McCain is a Republican.
John McCain’s latest stunt of oppositionalism? The ink was hardly dry on the pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio when he just had to release a statement against the action.
Sounds more like a temper tantrum.

Here’s the statement.
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) released the following statement today on President Trump’s pardon of former Sheriff Joe Arpaio:
“No one is above the law and the individuals entrusted with the privilege of being sworn law officers should always seek to be beyond reproach in their commitment to fairly enforcing the laws they swore to uphold. Mr. Arpaio was found guilty of criminal contempt for continuing to illegally profile Latinos living in Arizona based on their perceived immigration status in violation of a judge’s orders. The President has the authority to make this pardon, but doing so at this time undermines his claim for the respect of rule of law as Mr. Arpaio has shown no remorse for his actions.”
Maybe McCain doesn’t like Arpaio, but this really smacks of a vendetta against Trump.
When will McCain and the rest of the Establishment GOP stop sabotaging the Trump Administration?
