Tip Of The Iceberg

The Hill reports

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in a new interview criticized former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for writing her memoir so soon after the 2016 election. 

“What’s the f---ing point? Keep the fight up?” McCain asked in an interview with Esquire.

“History will judge that campaign, and it’s always a period of time before they do. You’ve got to move on. This is Hillary’s problem right now: She doesn’t have anything to do.”

We know what Senator McCain (and virtually all his GOP comrades) have to do. They have to pass a tax bill shoving money upward because, well, that's what Republicans do. If it weren't their raison d'etre, they wouldn't be Republicans.

But let's give Senator McCain a break, even though he's planning to bolster theTrump presidency by passing the Great Corporate Tax Cut bill of 2017. History will judge the campaign, as he notes, and vindicate Hillary Clinton, which he does not. Last week, Gabriel Sherman explained

As Kushner’s Russia troubles mount—last Friday the Senate disclosed that he had not turned over e-mails about WikiLeaks, a claim his attorney, Abbe Lowell, denied—insiders are again speculating, as my colleague Emily Jane Fox reported last month, about how long Kushner and Ivanka Trump will remain in Washington. Despite Kushner’s efforts to project confidence about Robert Mueller’s probe, he expressed worry after the indictments of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates about how far the investigation could go. “Do you think they’ll get the president?” Kushner asked a friend, according to a person briefed on the conversation.

Do you think they'll get the president, a knowing Jared Kushner asks. Odd it would be that he would worry about somone "getting" Trump unless he knew there was something to "get" him for. There is, and he does.

John McCain probably feels bad because he went quietly into the night, or rather, back into the Senate to join the GOP in opposing everything proposed by the guy who beat him- which was revenge of a sort. However, he was opposed only by Barack Obama.  Hillary Clinton had to defeat not only Donald Trump but also Jim Comey, Julian Assange, the right-wing media machine, and Vladimir Putin- and still won the popular vote.

So Hillary Clinton deserves a break. She could have waited a couple of years to put out her book. But given what Robert Mueller will almost surely report at the end of his investigation, John McCain and the degenerate party he belongs to have a lot more to worry about than Hillary Clinton's book.
