What McCain Just Did to Trump Will Make You SICK

For the last few weeks, we have been reporting on Donald Trump, who found himself the target of liberal backlash after he criticized the U.S.’s relationship with Mexico during his campaign announcement.

While many didn’t take Trump seriously as a presidential candidate at the beginning, that all changed last week when polls revealed that Trump is currently the frontrunner in the race for the GOP nomination.

Since these polls were revealed, the GOP establishment has turned on Trump, making it clear that they are not happy with him upsetting the status quo. One of the most vocal Republican big wigs who has been speaking out against Trump is Arizona Senator John McCain, who unsuccessfully ran for president in 2008. McCain was particularly outraged that Trump held a huge rally in Phoenix last weekend.

“It’s very bad,” McCain told the New Yorker on Monday. “This performance with our friend out in Phoenix is very hurtful to me. Because what he did was he fired up the crazies.”

As a supporter of comprehensive immigration reform, McCain said he has battled for years with the “very extreme element” of the far right. He said the party had just gotten these “crazies” under control when Trump stepped in.

“Now he galvanized them,” McCain said, according to Politico. “He’s really got them activated.”

McCain went on to say that he firmly believes that Trump’s past will come back to haunt him in the race.

“Some of this stuff is going to come out: He gave more money to Democrats than Republicans, he had Hillary Clinton at his wedding,” McCain said, referencing Trump’s 2005 wedding to his current wife Melania.

McCain is backing his longtime friend Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina in the race, praising him for being one of the only people in the party brave enough to criticize Trump.

McCain and the other members of the GOP establishment can complain about Trump as much as they want, but we don’t see him going anywhere anytime soon.
