This man really wants to end his career once and for all. His behavior especially in public is so insulting and, in a way, slightly disgusting. He makes in so perfidy, he’s using his diplomatic cunning skills to send a message in the most innocent way, but the essence of his messages is always ‘deadly’ for the GOP and now for President Donald Trump.
He appeared on live TV to insult the people who don’t believe in the notorious lies of the alleged global warming.
During an appearance Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., issued what appeared to be a repudiation of President Donald Trump’s views and policies on climate change.
“I don’t know because I can’t define their motives,” he responded when host Jake Tapper asked him why Trump and other Republicans deny the existence of man-made climate change, obviously making fun of them judging by his facial expression and his entire narrative during his interview.
“But I know this that there is — things happening with the climate in the world that is unprecedented,” he continued, seemingly contradicting Trump’s long-held belief that the doomsday scenarios touted by climate change activists are inaccurate.
McCain then pivoted to turn the focus of discussion to energy.
“(W)e need to have, in my view, nuclear power as part of the answer,” he said. “It’s the cleanest, cheapest, in many ways, source of power. My friends in the environmental community refuse to make that part of the equation. I’m not saying it is the equation but I’m saying it has got to be part of it because they’re basically anti-nuclear.”
In late June, Trump announced his plans to “expand the nuclear energy sector by launching a ‘complete review’ of current policy to identify ways to revive the industry,” according to CNBC.
McCain then brought the discussion back to climate change, arguing that common-sense measures must be taken to protect the American people.

“(W)e have to understand that the climate may be changing and we can take common-sense measures which will not harm the American people,” he said. “And in fact, solar and other technologies make it cheaper for energy for many of the American people, including a state like mine where we have lots of sunshine. So I think it’s time for to us sit down.”
The idea of investing in renewable energy also seems to contrast with Trump’s stated agenda. In early June, his administration announced major cuts to a division of the Department of Energy responsible for accelerating the growth of clean energy.
These cuts were in line with Trump’s campaign statements during the 2016 presidential election.
“They want everything to be wind and solar,” he said during an interview last October with 2012 presidential candidate Herman Cain. “Unfortunately, it’s not working on large-scale. It’s just not working. Solar is very, very expensive. Wind is very, very expensive, and it only works when it’s windy.”
Trump made it clear during the interview he would rather focus on the coal industry by removing onerous regulations.
McCain made no mention of coal during his appearance on CNN’s State of the Union.
Why they never mention coal mining? The answer is simple, because they wait for the 2018 elections and they’re afraid to lose their precious seats on Capitol Hil (read: swamp full of leeches and snakes). They don’t mention it because they need the votes of millions of people directly or indirectly involved in this industry and their families who are going to be left on the street starving.
That’s why. Trump want’s to make this nation stronger and he doesn’t care about Obama’s notorious lies and globalization. John McCain betrayed his party and his president once again. What’s your response?
