Earlier this week the WSJ reported a tarp and a barge were used to cover the USS John McCain’s name. The ship is named on behalf of three generations of McCain vets, including the former senator, who was often criticized by Trump. Trump denied knowledge of the “cover-up.”
The USS John McCain was originally named for John McCain Sr. and John McCain Jr. who were both Navy Admirals. In 2018, John McCain III’s name was added as well. Combined, they served in WWI, WWII, Kore, and Vietnam.
Meghan McCain didn’t take well to what the WSJ had to say:
“It’s impossible to go through the grief process when my father, who’s been dead 10 months, is constantly in the news cycle because the president is so obsessed with the fact that he’s never going to be a great man like he was. When you repeatedly are attacking my father and war heroes, it creates a culture in the military where people are clearly fearful to show my father’s name, that, I think, is what has started this chain of events.”
She even sent out a tweet saying,
“Trump is a child who will always be deeply threatened by the greatness of my dad’s incredible life. There is a lot of criticism of how much I speak about my dad, but nine months since he passed, Trump won’t let him RIP. So I have to stand up for him. It makes my grief unbearable.”
Which is a joke, if she actually wanted to pay attention to the horrible person her father was she’d know. Who can forget all the back alley deals he had with Saudis not to mention his words about making the Iraq war last 100 years. He and Bush were the instigators to get us involved in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. He approved of sending troops to die and wanted to send more. What a soldier he was, no not at all.
The president also responded to the accusations by the WSJ by saying, “I was not informed about anything having to do with the Navy Ship USS John S. McCain during my recent visit to Japan. Nevertheless, FLOTUS and I loved being with our great Military Men and Women -what a spectacular job they do!”
There are officials who do confirm there was a tarp that had been placed on the stern of the ship where it read the McCain name. The tarp was placed there according to U.S. officials to “hull maintenance and preservation.” it’s been in repair mode ever since a deadly collision that killed 10 sailors a couple of years ago.
The WSJ also reported much of the crew was relieved of their duty for the presidents visit alluding to sailors who had the ships name on their caps were dismissed. That was a lie, there were many navy men on board from different crews and they wanted to maintain uniformity were the speech would reach to all crews.
For the part of the USS McCain crew being relieved of their daily duty, it wasn’t just them the entire base got 96 hours off. This proved once again the left and the corrupt media want Trump no matter the story and this was indeed Fake News.
