‘F*CKING DISGRACE’! Ret. Gen. Thomas McInerney SLAMMED for this ‘DESPICABLE’ shot at John McCain [video]

Yesterday, Sen. John McCain announced his intent to vote against the confirmation of Gina Haspel to lead the CIA:

I believe Gina Haspel is a patriot who loves our country & has devoted her professional life to its service & defense. However, her role in overseeing the use of torture is disturbing & her refusal to acknowledge torture’s immorality is disqualifying. https://t.co/ocDtdqU2Sx

Given McCain’s own history, it’s no surprise that he’s concerned about the use of torture. You may or may not agree with his argument, but he’s more than earned the right to make it.

Apparently Ret. Gen. Thomas McInerney disagrees. In an interview with Fox Business’ Charles Payne, the Fox News analyst went after McCain with a hit so far below the belt, he may have very well grazed hell:

…Wow

Conversation on Fox about torture: “It worked on John [McCain]. That’s why they call him ‘Songbird John'” https://t.co/OjCwhv2ZhI pic.twitter.com/WehsgPAqgb

“The fact is … [torture] worked on John [McCain]. That’s why they call him ‘Songbird John.’ The fact is those methods can work, and they are effective …” pic.twitter.com/MWtYtqFCfK

Unreal. Regardless of how you feel about McCain’s Senate career, a swipe like that is absolutely beyond the pale.

no big deal, just Fox Business News giving a platform to a smear of Sen. John McCain’s time being tortured in a Vietnamese POW camp. https://t.co/SLCR4Ui9Gq

This is shameful. “Military analyst on Fox advocates for torture: “It worked on John [McCain]. That’s why they call him ‘Songbird John'” https://t.co/9U7enM0EGO

This is despicable. While I object to McCain’s legacy in the Senate, it is despicable to denigrate the man for the years of torture he endured while bravely serving and sacrificing on behalf of our great country. Just despicable.

A retired USAF three-star general, Thomas McInerney – a birther crank – just referred to former POW John McCain as “Songbird John” on FOX Business.

Don’t tell me not to question the patriotism of people who talk like this.

You can disagree with Senator McCain on policy and (sometimes) style. I have my disagreements with the man, even as I voted for him in the 2008 Primary.

However, I think it’s disgusting to go after him regarding his time as a POW. WTF?

This is so despicable @FoxNews

No words fit the revulsion i have…

— PhotonBlink (@TritiumBurst) May 10, 2018

This is completely unacceptable.@SenJohnMcCain is an American hero. The men and women who serve deserve better. This line of attack is cheap and deplorable way to score political points. FULL STOP #Veteran #JohnMcCain God Bless our #POWs & #MIAs 🇺🇸

Are you $%@*ing serious? He’s a decorated POW you pieces of s%@*.

— WhoWatchestheWatcher (@WatcherWho) May 10, 2018

I have no words… I am so angry, I have no words.

— R. Brenton (@brenton1218) May 10, 2018

I’ve disagreed with Senator McCain on many things, but he knows more about the depth of human cruelty than most.

This clip is reprehensible.

WHAT THE HELL? 😡😡😡😡😡

THIS EXCHANGE ACTUALLY HAPPENED ON @FOXBUSINESS, AND THIS GUY IS A @FOXNEWS MILITARY ANALYST. @cvpayne, this is shameful, disgusting, and as fake as fake news can get! pic.twitter.com/SITotDRIYR

Wow!
Sickening.
This B.S. about McCain being a “songbird” is ridiculous.

— George Wept (@GeorgeWept) May 10, 2018

Shame on Gen. McInerney. And shame on Charles Payne for not immediately calling him out.

And not a word of rebuke from @cvpayne! Not a single word. Despicable. https://t.co/MYvQ1wDHmt

— The Reagan Battalion (@ReaganBattalion) May 10, 2018

Just gross.

It’s too bad Ralph Peters isn’t still at Fox just because he would’ve walked on set and ripped this jackass’s throat out on live TV https://t.co/4Modkwd9ID

— Seth Mandel (@SethAMandel) May 10, 2018

And we would’ve cheered him on.
