The DC swamp used John McCain’s funeral as an anti-Trump rally.
Barack Obama was front and center of the attacks on Trump
He stood up and said the one thing that left every Trump supporter up in arms.
Obama Smears Trump at McCain’s Funeral
Obama used McCain’s funeral to attack Trump.
Instead of using his speech to speak well of McCain, Obama seized the moment to smear Trump.
Obama did not use Trump’s name, but it was clear who he was talking about.
He implied Trump was a racist who appealed to voters prejudices.
“So much of our politics, our public life, our public discourse can seem small and mean and petty, trafficking in bombast and insult and phony controversies and manufactured outrage,” Obama said.
He continued, “It’s a politics that pretends to be brave and tough but in fact is born in fear. John called on us to be bigger than that. He called on us to be better than that.”
Megan McCain Piles On
“We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness — the real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served,” McCain said.
McCain continued by mocking his campaign slogan “Make America Great Again”.
McCain ranted, “The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great.”
The members of the Washington establishment in attendance burst into applause.
George W. Bush Also Joins In
Former President George W. Bush also piled on Trump.
“John’s voice will always come as a whisper over our shoulder — we are better than this, America is better than this,” Bush said.
“Above all, John detested the abuse of power. He could not abide bigots and swaggering despots.”
Many Trump supporters took that as Bush following the media line that Trump is a racist who cozies up to dictators.
Bush also praised McCain’s support for open borders.
“He respected the dignity inherent in every life — a dignity that does not stop at borders and cannot be erased by dictators,” Bush said.
The establishment hates Trump because he believes in America First at the border.
Trump won the election by promising to crack down on illegal immigration.
And as President, he followed through on his promise with real action.
So the DC elite struck back at Trump at McCain’s funeral.
Both his family and former Presidents used the gathering to bash Trump.
The press cheered the attacks on the President.
But millions of Americans were outraged at what they saw.
It was everything they hate about Washington.
