John McCain: "I Hope" Trump Has Been 'Sucked In' By The Washington Establishment

Tyler Durden's picture

Last week we noted that Trump's base was starting to turn on him after the White House seemed flip on several key campaign issues including labeling China a currency manipulator, ousting Yellen as the Fed Chair and taking a hard stance against NATO, among other things.  The sudden reversals earned Trump a new nickname in the Twittersphere of "Flipper-in-Chief."

Of course, Trump attempted to downplay the new moniker by highlighting all of the campaign promises he has 'kept' since being in office.


But any damage that Trump may have hoped to undo with his tweet last week, was quickly erased over the weekend when John McCain appeared on “Meet the Press” with Chuck Todd to confirm that he "hopes" Trump has been "sucked in by the Washington establishment."

Todd:  "I want to talk about the overall changes.  You've said he's growing in office.  There are some that will say, 'no the Washington establishment sucked him in.'"


McCain“I hope so [awkward laughter]. On national security, I do believe he has assembled a strong team and I think, very appropriately, he is listening to them.”

Probably not the type of 'help' that Trump wants from establishment Republicans...

Fast forward to the 5 minute market for the relevant exchange.

In other words: Blow up the world.

Slightly OT…

Everybody’s pissed at Erdogan, but Donald has been the highest Mar-a-Lago official to congratulate Erdogan today.

According to the CIA World Factbook, “Turkey makes the best Turkish Delight in the world.”

So, Trump called Erdogan to make sure that the Turkish Government Overhaul won’t affect his daily defection schedule @5:54 AM EST, right before his Presidential morning tweets.

Erdogan, in turn, assured the most powerful “Flipper-Upper in the World” that nothing will change, and that the Turkish Embassy in DC has a 3-month-supply of Fecal Matter to fill all presidential toilets in the USA.   ;-)

I wish McCain would be sucked in as well.

A 747 Jet Intake would work nicely.

I think he means, "I know so."

In Romania they use the same name for poo and 'turkish delight', just FYI. I guess, history may be of culprit ...

Why ruin a perfectly good engine.
Use the plane to fly her to S.Korea, then walk her into the minefield between N & S at gunpoint.
I can hear the treasonous little bitch now....

We've almost reached peak Zio-Jew.


When they are this brazen, we should all be aware their fall is coming.

To sum up thousands of years of World History between Jews and Goyim, we can look at 1 simple analogy:

Picture a mean-spirited, spoiled, rotten little boy, and a full-grown dog.

The boy pokes, teases, and torments this dog. He pulls the dog's tail, kicks it when it's laying down, pulls its ears, and is rarely ever nice to it. He even pees in the dog's water dish sometimes.

One day, the little boy takes a stick, and starts hitting the dog. He repeatedly hits the dog, and won't stop.

Suddenly, the dog gets really angry, and attacks the little boy, biting him over and over again.

The little boy runs away crying, and bleeding. He thinks "I don't know WHY the dog bit me; I didn't do anything".


Boy = Jew

Dog = Goyim

Beating with a stick = What happens when the Jews come into power, in EVERY place they've ever gone.

Dog biting = What happens EVERY time the Goyim get sick of the Jews' and their ways.

This is exactly what happened in at least parts of eastern Europe a couple of hundred years ago. The aristocracy used the (((boy))) for administrators and the (((boy))) was very efficient at the job. I guess lacking empathy makes oppressing local peasants easy.

....but to quote Gerald Celente "when people have nothing to lose the lose it" and administrators get massacred.

if mccain is starting to sing his praises, thats not a good sign for trump or his (former) supporters. He is emblematic of everything that is wrong with washington, if trump is making him happy, that doesn't bode well for the rest of the world.

Trump had a good start.  But there must be something in the water.  Or it's just being around the swamp contagion.  

Whatever it is, he's heading on a different path that what I thought he said he was gonna do.

I must admit, I had a pretty good bead on Trump up until he "fell" for the Syria gas attack, now I am not sure what is going on.

He's been pretty impressive with his gambits and his forward thinking moves (even if they appear as random early-morning tweets), but Syria and the move to 'fix' our international problems bothers me.

He had the opposition on the ropes with Susan Rice being outed as the wiretapper, and peace was at hand in Syria (we had even stated regime change was not necessary!).

Trump falls for an obvious false flag, and all goes to shit - or does it?

We have China backing us when dealing with N. Korea - that is huge.

We did not declare them a manipulator, but we definitely used that chip as leverage.

After N. Korea is dealt with (you cannot have a nuclear power threatening global conflict - this has been a problem for a while and they finally have ICBM technology, apparently), Trump will pivot back to Iran and use Syria as leverage.

What I would like to see is a second false flag attempt, and Trump nailing the instigators for it (given they think he will play along) and trying them for treason.

I think the pedophile stuff will come out too - any day now... Just after we repeal Obamacare and we get those tax cuts through.

Swap drains you.

Did you even pause for a moment at the absurd hypocrisy of that statement???

McCain was sucked off by NVA "persuasion specialists" that would stop his ejaculations by choking it off with a piece of piano wire as part of his "Manchurianization"

He is the definition of mind controlled whack

The establishment will threaten your family, your business, your money and your life to control you.  My conclusion is that the next President should be a suicidal homeless drifter who loves his Country more than himself.

I'm sorry, what proof do we have that Trump's base has actually turned on him? The polls? THAT GOT IT WRONG in November? Nice one

I'd say some have already turned and others of us are still witholding judgement but definitely not encouraged by recent events.

#1. Used an obvious false flag as justification to bomb Syria and adopt the "Assad must go" position.

#2. Not ONE criminal investigation into any politician even hinted at.  Swamp aint gonna drain itself.

#3. His CIA head saying Wikileaks is the problem rather than the corruption and lies they are exposing.

There are others and maybe it's more complex than we peasants could possibly understand but on all the things that really matter this sure doesnt look much different than the last 3 admins. 


BarkingCat's picture

I have myself as proof. I gave money to Trump campain. Day after Syria I felt the same type of grief that one feels after a death of a loved one.

I read lots of others here that had also the same sentiment as I.

I know there are some that have not turned against Trump but they are simply acting like a domestic abuse victim and trying to justify his actions.
