Conservatives are infuriated with Senator John McCain because he has spent the last year working in complete betrayal of the Republican party. It seems that Traitor McCain’s number 1 goal is to make it as difficult as possible for President Trump and his administration to get anything done.
This week was no different as Sen. McCain launched his most recent attack plan against Trump when he threatened the president’s defense nominees over the Army’s plan to offer mental-health waivers.
McCain spoke out on Tuesday to say that the Senate Armed Services Committee could delay Trump’s nominees for defense positions because of dissatisfaction with the Army’s announcement of a plan to offer waivers for recruits with histories of some mental-health conditions, according to Business Insider.
Just recently, the Army had lifted a ban on mental-health waivers and will allow people with histories of self-mutilation, bipolar disorder, depression, and drug and alcohol abuse to request them.
On Tuesday, McCain publicly exploded over his hate for this policy change during a confirmation hearing for three nominees.
“It’s a problem we’ve been having with this administration,” McCain said, according to Military Times. “We should have been told about this before it showed up in a USA Today article. The Army did not respond to a question of how many waivers, if any, have been issued since the policy was changed.”
Republicans are annoyed because McCain has notoriously held up the nomination process several times this year. The Arizona senator went on to say that it seemed to him the only way to get the Pentagon to provide information was to force defense officials to testify in open hearings or stop confirming nominees.
