All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same unalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.

In which I sadly admit, John McCain has FORFEITED my respect
While OUTSIDE the borders, I believe Mr. McCain allowed his (justifiable) personal hatred of Trump to get the better of both his judgement AND his patriotism and loyalty, ESPECIALLY as he has MOSTLY been loved by the press.
Mr. McCain who earned his status as hero the hardest of ways, and yet live, has simply gone as FAR over the line as you can go in calling the the acts of the President the acts of a dictator while in a foreign land.
He makes no distinction between the REAL and undoubted #FAKENEWS incidence of an overwhelmingly hostile press which has excused itself IN WRITING from objectivity, and which called the president UNAMERICAN, and a critical and sometimes adversarial press.
I have called Trump’s statement about the press waaaaaay over a line.
This is worse.
This was not some aside to CNN in the halls of Congress, or mentioned on a flight home with WaPo around. This was premeditated and purposeful.
This is something you say one on one to the person you are concerned with, with a warning that if the process that brought the statement about does not end, public condemnation will occur.
McCain has good reason to despise Trump, and he is right, for those reasons to do so, but that has absolutely NOTHING to do with what he did yesterday in any means that count.
Worse still, there is no way back for McCain. He cannot unsay this. He cannot take away the damage. He cannot make it better.
He is now in another land, any way you look at it.
