John McCain Rails Against Trump For His "One Of The Most Disgraceful" Press Conferences With Putin

Date July 17, 2018

It’s not the first time President Trump isn’t consistent in his attitude towards Russia and its president Vladimir Putin.

Defending Putin?

This time, the US president has opted for defending Russian president. Trump failed to criticize the Russian interference into the US elections. Instead, he claimed both countries were responsible.


What is more, President Trump has given a few more chances for Russia to easily get away with it. Here are Trump’s words:

I hold both countries responsible. I think that the United States has been foolish. I think that we've all been foolish. We should have had this dialogue a long time ago, a long time, frankly, before I got to office.

John McCain can’t stand that

After such a press conference, John McCain couldn’t just stay silent. He called it "one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory." Here’s his Twitter post:

It’s rather a harsh statement from the senator. Still, there was another one from Adam Schiff, Congressman from California's 28th Congressional District. He wasn’t too modest in his post and said it was "the most damaging and shameful surrender of American values".

Public reactions

American citizens reacted to the president’s performance immediately. Lots of them claimed McCain spoke for lots of them and that the Congress is to do its duty.

All the more, people have come up with funny gifs like this one, picturing the whole sadness of the situation.

There were even ideas about Trump’s impeachment. That’s how serious it all might get!

Anyways, let’s hope the politicians will finally remember who they are working for and will execute their people’s will, right?
