John McCain just can’t bring himself to side with Donald Trump on anything, even if he agrees with the POTUS. He is an absolute nutjob! While on Sunday’s edition of CBS’s Face the Nation, McCain said that he agrees with the Syrian strikes but Trump’s rhetoric is partial to blame for the chemical attacks.
According to Politico:
“I think it probably was partially to blame. And Secretary [Rex] Tillerson basically saying the same thing after kind of contradicting himself and then saying the same thing argues vigorously for a plan and a strategy,” the Arizona senator said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “As I said, again, taking this action I support and was important.”
Tillerson had said in late March that the Syrian people would determine Assad’s fate.
McCain said the Trump administration needs to have a more concrete strategy in dealing with Syria and shouldn’t treat Thursday’s U.S. missile strikes as a “one-time deal.” He emphasized that just going after chemical weapons ignores how large a problem Syria has become.

Politico also added:
McCain also rejected a statement by Tillerson that the U.S. needs to prioritize defeating the Islamic State in Syria before trying to stabilize the country. McCain said the U.S must also be concerned about other reported war crimes by the Assad regime, such as using barrel bombs and starving thousands of prisoners.
“So there’s a lot of war crimes that are taking place. And another aspect of this that I do not agree with the secretary is that you have to just concentrate on ISIS,” McCain said. “We can walk and chew gum.”
McCain is clearly still out to get Trump along with the rest of his fellow RHINO’S, but the American people are starting to wise up to his BS and it won’t be long before he is just a bad memory. Only time will tell if the situation in Syria is being properly dealt with, but it’s important to stay united in this crucial time.
