What’s the definition of a “spoiler”?
If you look up the word in the dictionary, it means, “any competitor, entrant or candidate who has no chance of ultimate victory, but does well enough to spoil the chances of another.” But alongside the definition might as well go a picture of Republican in Name Only (RiNO) Senator John McCain of Arizona.
That’s because, despite his losing the race for the presidency in 2008, McCain has acted as a dogged opponent and very real spoiler in the Senate of President Trump’s popular nationalist agenda. McCain has consistently spiked all attempts at repealing Obamacare — and now, it looks as if he could do the same thing with tax reform.
McCain was also behind the attempt to smear and discredit Trump earlier this year with the so-called “Dirty Dossier” cooked up by Orbis Business Intelligence, the political consulting group led by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele.
By calling himself a Republican and then acting with the Democrats, McCain has proven that he’s a Benedict Arnold among Senators — betraying Republican constituents who voted for him (after he grudgingly endorsed Donald Trump prior to October of last year to win votes in his home state).
But not only is he forsaking the party he’s previously sworn allegiance to, he’s grossly distorted the balance of power in the Senate by acting like a child, forcing representatives of both parties — including the president — to make overtures to try to alter his position, which at times has represented the crucial swing vote on major issues such as Obamacare.
Watch, as Infowars’ Jon Bowne has more on McCain’s Democratic leanings (and if you look closely, you can see former Vice President Joe Biden applauding the RiNO Senator in the early part of the clip!).
