Arizona Sen. John McCain is losing his damn mind.
First, during James Comey’s hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee, the career politician appeared to be having a very hard time collecting his thoughts and making any sort of coherent point whatsoever, making people question his mental fitness. As if that wasn’t bad enough, he later did an interview with The Guardian that really had people’s heads spinning.
Below is the segment of the hearing where McCain seemed to be on another planet:
Obviously, something didn’t seem right about him there, which he would later blame on fatigue from traveling. However, he likely wasn’t fatigued when he told The Guardian that America’s leadership in the world was better under Obama.
Yeah, he really said that.
From the Independent Journal:
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said American leadership around the globe was stronger under President Barack Obama than it is today, according to the Guardian.
When asked if America’s standing on the global stage was better under Obama, McCain reportedly responded:
“As far as American leadership is concerned, yes.”
McCain also apparently argued that the world isn’t “sure of American leadership, whether it be in Siberia or whether it be in Antarctica.”
John McCain says American leadership was better under Obama.
A bitter, very small man, and certainly not a hero in my book.

John McCain has lost his damned mind telling the Guardian Obama was a better leader than Trump. My God. Really Arizona? Proud?

You get the idea.
McCain hasn’t ever been a fan of President Trump, but you have to be completely off your rocker to believe that Obama was a better leader than our current President.
Hopefully Arizonians get rid of him the next time he’s up for re-election, since it’s him and other never Trumpers squandering the opportunity we have with both houses of Congress and the White House with comments like the one above.
