Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has been dead for a year now.

He sadly passed away on Aug. 25, 2018.

And now the liberal media — seeking to take down President Donald Trump however they can — want to associate themselves with his wife, Cindy McCain, as she’s out there praising her husband, someone who helped push the Steele Dossier against President Trump without even checking to see whether it was true or not.

Cindy McCain appeared on ABC’s “This Week” with Jonathan Karl.

On that program, she said without remorse that the country, under the leadership of President Donald Trump, was “not well.”

Karl said to her, “Are you surprised at the way the Republican Party has marched [in] lockstep with President Trump?”

She replied, “I’m surprised at a lot of things. This party is not the party of Abraham Lincoln that I have seen, nor the party of Ronald Reagan.”

“We’re the ones who should be nonpartisan. We’re the ones who should be working for the good of all. I believe this pendulum is going to swing back. I don’t know when.”

She added, “But I just don’t believe we’re going to stick right here on this side that’s just disruptive and mean and non-progressive.”

“Our country is not well right now,” she also went on. “We’re not. You know, we need to get our act together, number one, and step back and take a breath. You know, this country’s made up of immigrants, we’re made up of people of every color, every creed, and that’s what makes us special. To somehow side up black and white, brown and white, or whatever it may be — it’s just wrong. It’s not who we are.”

If she’s talking about compromising with Democrats — it doesn’t work, and that is proven.

The lesson we learned by compromising with the Left is that conservatives always give up something — which should say something about who is losing rights here.

The truth is that John McCain, who was not well in the last few years of his life, put his feud with Trump ahead of the interests of the American people.

That’s his legacy. Our country is doing well under President Trump, whether people like Trump’s style or not. Facts are facts.

Amazing how John McCain is now somehow the hero of many liberals — yet they called him horrible things during the 2008 election when he ran against Obama.

Now that McCain is gone, he is their hero. How pathetic, to me.

McCain was not a hero; he was a political hack, as I see it. Sorry, but this man gets no respect from me; all he did was serve himself and his needs. He threw all of us under the bus.

I will admit that McCain was better than Barack Obama in 2008, but he lost because he didn’t want to fight, and I think that made him bitter, especially when President Trump won in 2016.

Unfortunately, McCain also tried to compromise with the radical Left, which put him so far Left he wasn’t a Republican anymore.

There can never be any compromise with socialists.
