Trump Renews Attacks on John McCain, Months After Senator’s Death

<<snip>>

Donald J. Trump?
@realDonaldTrump

Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier “is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain.” Ken Starr, Former Independent Counsel. He had far worse “stains” than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump

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!

The comments exemplified Mr. Trump’s new model for presidential communication, both in form and tone, exploiting the power and urgency of social media. But they also sparked swift condemnation, showing that the president abandons conventional boundaries of civility like not speaking ill of the dead at his peril.

“There’s no low with him,” John Weaver, a former political adviser to Mr. McCain, said in an interview. “There’s no bottom.”

Mr. Trump and Mr. McCain had a long history of enmity. Mr. McCain provided a copy of the so-called Steele Dossier — which outlined a range of often salacious but unproven misdeeds by Mr. Trump and his associates — to the F.B.I. after Election Day. Supporters of Mr. Trump have seized on the dossier as a way to try to discredit the Russia inquiry.
