Malik Obama, the half-brother of former President Barack Obama, posed a terrific question about Sen. John McCain early Tuesday morning, essentially questioning what exactly it is that makes the Arizona senator such a so-called “hero.”
“If @SenJohnMcCain is such a hero why is he so silent when people disrespect the flag?” he wrote on Twitter.
Aside from McCain’s praiseworthy military service, which includes serving in the Vietnam War and being held captive by the North Vietnamese for nearly six years, the guy seems much more like a back-stabbing villain than a hero.
Consider that every single time the senator has been afforded an opportunity this year to rise up as a champion of conservatism, he’s stubbornly rebuked it.
Because of McCain’s intransigence, for instance, the Graham-Cassidy Obama “repeal” bill proposed by Sens. Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham is pretty much dead in the water.
