“White House wanted McCain naval ship away from Trump during Japan trip: sources

“Trump tells reporters he didn’t order a ship to move, but whoever did may have been ‘well meaning’”

 

It is hard to understand why there’s always been such enmity between these two.

We all understand what a nasty piece-of-work Trump is.

But not so many people realize that McCain was cut from the same cloth, despite all the recent funeral tributes and talk of him as a hero.

Here’s a factual summary of McCain’s life done some while back that you may enjoy or, at least, learn from:

I do believe McCain’s example provides the classic example of a sow’s ear made into a silk purse, of a manufactured hero, quite literally manufactured. It is an important testimonial to the power of the press and national politicians in creating myths.

Of course, we see that creative process repeated countless times in America’s brutal efforts abroad. Genuine monsters like Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince or Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu are granted status as good guys. Decent leaders, who happen not to be liked by America, with Ghaddafi being an excellent example, are vilified and even sometimes murdered.

With the complete disaster of the Vietnam holocaust (3 million Vietnamese were killed) and America still was humiliatingly defeated militarily, the establishment desperately needed a hero to make things seem better near the end. John McCain, son and grandson of American Admirals, got picked.

In fact, both McCain and Trump are genuine American grotesques, the kind of ugly folks the American empire calls on for its continued success.
