The world of politics can be messy, but the goal, overall, is to help the PEOPLE. However, it seems that people like John McCain are only in it for themselves and their agenda.
On Tuesday McCain tried to pick a fight with Trump’s nomination for Deputy Defense Secretary, Pat Shanahan. Shanahan questioned whether or not we should arm the Ukraine allies and McCain LOST HIS MIND. According to The Washington Examiner, McCain went so far as to threaten to block the vote for the deputy defense secretary nominee. This means war!
Shanahan was suggesting that he would like to LOOK AT THE ISSUE of arming the Ukrainian people before doing it. This shattered McCain’s fragile reality. God forbid Shanahan should want to consider any facts or evidence before arming these people. Everyone knows you are supposed to do it blindly without questioning.
McCain acted as if he had been PERSONALLY insulted by Shanahan, a former Boeing executive, who wanted to understand why these people need weapons, and if it would be beneficial to our country to make such a bold move. Considering that his job is going to be in the Defense Department, you would think that it would be important to know whether we are arming people who need it.
McCain proceeded to drill Shanahan with questions, many times the same question but worded differently. Finally, Shanahan agreed and said the Ukrainians have his support.
In the snidest way possible, McCain responded, “Do not do that again, Mr. Shanahan or I will not take your name up for a vote before this committee. Am I perfectly clear?”
If you read between the lines, you can see McCain launching into a power trip, acting as if he should NEVER be questioned. This is FOOLISHNESS. If you are in a position of authority, you have every right to have your motives and actions examined.
The quicker Shanahan gets into office, the better. The role was initially meant to be taken by Sheriff David Clarke, but he had other things he needed to take care of and declined. Defense Secretary James Mattis will be able to focus more on HIS job after Shanahan takes the spot underneath “Mad Dog.”
What makes all of this crazy, is that McCain THREATENED him over questioning him. McCain essentially said, “Don’t question my motives or you won’t get my vote.” It is the typical Leftist mentality of resisting. If they do not get their way, there is a big tantrum; an argument, like you are trying to put a 3-year-old down for a nap. It is childish and absurd.
These people are supposed to be ADULTS, not children. McCain needs to start looking at the big picture and get out of his little bubble. His behavior is frowned upon by the entire country.
Hopefully, everything goes through without a hitch and Shanahan makes it into his new position without a fight. It is sad that he has to jump through hoops just to get his job because the Left can’t stop crying long enough to make a rational decision about voting someone into office.
