McCain "Almost" Speechless

John McCain, Arizona's carbuncle of a U.S. senator, has logged more air time on the Sunday morning television talk shows than Tim Russert, David Brinkley, and Lawrence Spivak combined.  The networks like Johnny Mac because he always has plenty to say whether he has any specific knowledge on the subject or not.  McCain calls his incessant lip-flapping "straight talk."

This past Sunday while McCain was a guest on Fox News Sunday, the subject of Trump's meeting with two Russian diplomats in the White House came up.  At that meeting Trump reportedly told Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov that James Comey, the FBI Director fired by Trump the preceding week, was "a real nutjob."  McCain, in responding to Trump's derogatory description of Comey, said that he had been "almost speechless" upon hearing the comment.  McCain then went on to disparage Foreign Minister Lavrov whom he described as "nothing but a propagandist" who had "no business in the White House."

When Johnny Mac finished disparaging the Russian foreign minister, he turned to disparaging Trump and his ever-widening scandal which he described last week as "approaching Watergate size and scale."  He had plenty to say about that as well.

McCain speechless?  That'll be the day!
