Senator John McCain quickly became a thorn in other politicians’ eyes. Therefore, Arizona state Rep. Bob Thorpe stated he believes the Senator needs to be more respectful in the hierarchy chain.
“McCain is angry that Trump, just like President Obama before him, exercised his constitutional power in granting executive clemency to former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio,” Thorpe stated.
“Arizona’s senior senator appears to have forgotten Obama’s record-breaking 1,927 acts of clemency. He also seems to have ignored the fact that Arpaio was convicted for merely following state and federal laws when he turned illegal immigrants over to federal officials,” Thorpe wrote.

Thorpe noted Arpaio’s nonsense conviction was the result of “a politically motivated show-trial in the Obama era.”
Thorpe felt like would be unable to forget that McCain failed to “protect Americans from those who have not shown respect for the rule of U.S. laws.”
“Remember Kate Steinle, Jamal Shaw, and so many others who have died at the hands of illegal immigrants,” Thorpe wrote. “Please do not forget these murdered Americans, just as McCain has forgotten his 2016 campaign promise to ‘build the danged fence.’”
On the flip side, McCain vowed to “complete the danged fence” back in his 2010 campaign.
As a result of this ad, many criticized McCain for failing to deliver and leaving Americans out to dry.
“We’re trying to remove the excuses for why (part of the border fence) hasn’t been built,” Rep. David Schweikert explained. “You don’t get to spend the first dollar on building yourselves a new building. You spend the first dollar on building the fence.”
McCain received heat for allowing Americans to struggle with the health issues, by voting ‘no’ to repeal the failing Obamacare project. Joining McCain in this decision were also Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.
“Just like his promise to build the ‘danged fence,’ his promise to repeal and replace the failing Obamacare appears to have only been hyperbolic campaign rhetoric,” Thorpe wrote.
Thorpe recalled President Abraham Lincoln’s warning that “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
“Congressmen who constantly grab headlines by attacking our Republican president and conservatives, and who are oblivious to the many campaign promises that got them elected, are destroying my constituents’ confidence in our Republican Party,” Thorpe wrote.
“The situation just might be enough to convince us that Lincoln was right,” he added.
McCain made a comeback after undergoing chemotherapy, due to his recent brain cancer diagnosis. Senate is now expecting his return, although a regretful McCain doesn’t seem to be a possible outcome.
