Twitter users take Trump to the woodshed for refusing to let John McCain rest in peace


President Donald Trump degraded the office of the presidency again on Saturday evening by launching a vile attack against the late-Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Twitter and at his MAGA rally, drawing a sharp rebuke from his critics and supporters.

Rather than say anything about the New Zealand mass shooting that took 49 lives on Friday or, you know, actually condemn hate and white nationalism, Trump peddled more hate by lashing out at McCain’s ghost for not voting to strip Americans of healthcare and for doing the right thing by turning the Steele dossier over to the FBI:

McCain’s decision to vote against repeal of the Affordable Care Act came bravely after his diagnosis of brain cancer, which he sadly succumbed to late last year surrounded by his family. Also, parts of the dossier have been verified and McCain made the right decision to hand it over to the FBI. Plus, the FBI had more probable cause beyond the dossier to investigate Trump.

Twitter users, starting with Meghan McCain, fired back at Trump. And even some of his supporters rebuked him:

This is yet another sad day for America as Trump continues to destroy common decency. He is so petty that he can’t even let McCain rest in peace. He feels the need to attack his corpse every chance he gets. McCain can’t fight back, but the rest of us can and should with every fiber of our being. Now the only question is where the hell is Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.)? After all, a true friend would not tolerate this insult of McCain’s memory.
