Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has officially joined the globalist faction after making the bizarre declaration that Russian President Vladimir Putin poses a bigger threat to the world than the Islamic State ‚Äď even after admitting that there is STILL ‚Äúno evidence‚ÄĚ that Russia influenced the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
During an interview with Australian Broadcasting Corporation program ‚Äú7:30,‚ÄĚ McCain fielded a simple question about how much of a geopolitical threat Putin is on the global scale.
‚ÄúI think he is the premier and most important threat, more so than ISIS,‚ÄĚ he fired back. ‚ÄúI think ISIS can do terrible things and I worry a lot what is happening with the Muslim faith and I worry about a whole lot of things about it.‚ÄĚ
Despite the recent ISIS-backed atrocities in Britain and Egypt that claimed upwards of 50 lives together, McCain is more alarmed by conspiracy theories: ‚ÄúBut it‚Äôs the Russians who tried to destroy the very fundamental of democracy, and that is to change the outcome of an American election,‚ÄĚ he said.
Shortly thereafter, McCain was forced to concede some ground. ‚ÄúI‚Äôve seen no evidence they succeeded, but they tried, and they are still trying to change elections. They just tried to affect the outcome of the French election. I view the Russians as the far greatest challenge we have,‚ÄĚ he opined.
Despite his ostensible ties to the Republican party, McCain has emerged as a frequent and fervent critic of Trump, often spouting the same narrative used by the unhinged Democratic party to lambast the president. As of late, McCain has done his part to try to get the Russian collusion narrative to stick, even though he admits the whole thing is all smoke and no fire.
