Trump Launches a Flurry of Tweets at Sen. McCain


President Trump tweeted about Sen. Blumenthal early on Thursday morning.

In the tweet, the president questioned the senator’s honesty.

The tweet was in response to Sen. Blumenthal (D-Conn.) telling the media on Wednesday that Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court criticized Trump for lashing out against judges via Twitter.

But President Trump didn’t stop there. He followed up with another tweet one hour later.

The new tweet was in response to an interview that took place this morning on CNN: “Chris Cuomo, in his interview with Sen. Blumenthal, never asked him about his long-term lie about his brave “service” in Vietnam. FAKE NEWS!”

Minutes after launching the tweet about the CNN interview, the president changed direction and lashed out at Sen. John McCain (R- Ariz.). On Tuesday, Sen. McCain called the Yemen raid on Jan. 29 a “failure.” During the raid, Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens was killed.

Reportedly, the raid also resulted in civilian deaths, some of them women and children.

On Wednesday, press secretary Sean Spicer responded by calling the raid a “huge success” and saying any criticism of the action taken in Yemen was a “disservice” to Ryan Owens.

Trump tweeted: “Sen. McCain should not be talking about the success or failure of a mission to the media. Only emboldens the enemy! He’s been losing so long he doesn’t know how to win anymore, just look at the mess our country is in – bogged down in conflict all over the place. Our hero Ryan died on a winning mission ( according to General Mattis), not a “failure.” Time for the U.S. to get smart and start winning again!”
