John McCain has been at odds with Donald Trump ever since the campaign.
Once Trump assumed the Presidency, McCain stepped up his sabotage.
But that was nothing compared to his latest attack on Trump.
Trump was following the protocols of his office when he called Russian President Vladimir Putin to congratulate him on winning re-election.
This set the media’s hair on fire.
Trump’s enemies pounced as they saw an opportunity to push the false narrative that the two were in cahoots.
And Senator McCain tweeted out this angry statement attacking Trump for recognizing Putin’s fraudulent win.
An American president does not lead the Free World by congratulating dictators on winning sham elections. And by doing so with Vladimir Putin, President Trump insulted every Russian citizen who was denied the right to vote in a free and fair election. https://t.co/lcQTBi7CA1

But this was just a normal call from one world leader to another.
Leaders of France and Germany also called Putin to congratulate him.
And Barack Obama made a similar call in 2012.
Congratulatory calls to world leaders after their election are a standard part of diplomacy. Here's the readout of President Obama's call to Putin after his election in 2012: pic.twitter.com/stJnbbum4N

This episode is just the latest example of the anti-Trump media screaming “This is not normal!” about an event that is—in fact—completely normal.
McCain and the media’s only real objection to this situation is that Donald Trump is President.
They were perfectly fine with Obama calling Putin to offer his congratulations.
Do you agree this is another example of the anti-Trump media making a mountain out of a molehill?
