President Donald J. Trump was asked by a reporter at his joint press conference with Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro about his recent knocks against late Senator John McCain, with whom Trump has often taken issue.
In his typically blunt fashion, Trump responded:
“I’m very unhappy that he didn’t repeal and replace ObamaCare, as you know. He campaigned on repealing and replacing ObamaCare for years and then he got to a vote and he said thumbs down. And our country would have saved a trillion dollars and we would have had great health care. So, he campaigned, he told us hours before that he was going to repeal and replace. And then for some reason — I think I understand the reason — he ended up going thumbs up. And frankly had we even known that I think we would have gotten a vote because we could have gotten somebody else. So, I think that’s disgraceful. Plus there are other things. I was never a fan of John McCain and I never will be.”
Trump recently knocked McCain on Twitter for his dealings with the dirty and unproven Steele Dossier, which McCain brought to disgraced former FBI director James Comey and the rest of his clan of alphabet boys in an effort to stop Trump from becoming president.
“So it was indeed (just proven in court papers) ‘last in his class’ (Annapolis) John McCain that sent the Fake Dossier to the FBI and Media hoping to have it printed BEFORE the Election. He & the Dems, working together, failed (as usual). Even the Fake News refused this garbage!” he said.

McCain died seven months ago, and Trump’s attacks did not sit well with some. Others, however, recognize McCain for who he was. A savage political operator who did everything in his power to protect his precious GOP establishment from Trump, who promised to destroy it on behalf of the American people.

Biden’s White House Considering Banning Conservative Media from Press Briefings
Briefings could be restricted to mainstream media?
President Joe Biden’s press team may move to restrict the briefings held at the White House to liberal mainstream media outlets, if language from the new President’s deputy press secretary if more than just talk.
“Organizations or individuals who traffic in conspiracy theories, propaganda and lies to spread disinformation will not be tolerated,” TJ Ducklo, Biden’s deputy press secretary, said in a statement to Politico, “and we’ll work with the WHCA to decide how to handle those instances moving forward.”
Given liberal media figures’ extremely wide-ranging definition of “disinformation,” it appears possible to likely that any journalist or reporter who is critical of Biden policies “will not be tolerated” at the White House.
President Trump had accredited journalists from outlets such as Breitbart and One America News Network during his time in office, and Ducklo’s language suggests the press credentials of such organizations may be revoked. Biden himself has chafed over questions regarding his son’s corrupt foreign business dealings, calling Fox News’ Peter Doocy a “one horse pony” for daring to ask about an ongoing Department of Justice investigation into Hunter Biden.
The first press briefing of the Biden administration was attended by fourteen mainstream media employees, in a limited-capacity briefing spurred by the coronavirus pandemic. Room service journalists questioned White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki about the color scheme of Air Force One and Biden’s mood on Inauguration Day.
Former Trump administration Press Secretary Sean Spicer described the ‘easy mode’ briefing as “an embarrassment.” Spicer is currently seeking press credentials to attend White House briefings, along with Fox host Eric Bolling.
Expect the remaining “journalists” present for White House press briefings to ask vital questions about dogs, chocolate chip ice cream, and softball slam dunks for the Biden administration.
