President Donald J. Trump has issued a stern warning to DC’s most relentless swamp monster, Sen. John McCain, regarding comments he made at an award ceremony last week in Philadelphia.
Speaking at the event, held at the National Constitution Center, McCain has warned against “spurious nationalism” and negative sentiments about globalism.
“To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ‘the last best hope of Earth’ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history,” McCain said.
The speech was widely seen as yet another dig at Trump and his “America First” campaign from the “Never-Trump” Arizona senator who has become a darling to the left.
On Tuesday, Trump fired back stating that while he is currently being “very, very nice” at some point he will fight back and “it won’t be pretty.”
“People have to careful, because at some point I fight back,” Trump told WMAL radio host Chris Plante. “I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very nice. But at some point I fight back, and it won’t be pretty.”
McCain responded to Trump’s warning by telling a CNN reporter that he has “faced far greater challenges than this.”

It remains unclear if the old “songbird” handled any of those “greater challenges” very well.
