    Republican Sen. John McCain said Thursday that President Trump’s performance at the NATO alliance summit this week was disappointing but not surprising and does not reflect the positions of the rest of the United States.

    “There is little use in parsing the president’s misstatements and bluster, except to say that they are the words of one man. Americans, and their Congress, still believe in the transatlantic alliance and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and it is clear that our allies still believe in us as well,” said McCain, who issued the statement from his home in Arizona where he is undergoing treatment for brain cancer.

    Trump said the 69-year-old alliance is “very, very powerful, very, very strong” as the summit wrapped up Thursday and declared victory after publicly criticizing member nations and demanding they pay more for their national defense.

    However, the outcome and affirmation of the alliance should be attributed to the European allies, McCain said

    I have to wonder what would happen if a fellow just shook him really hard?

    Of course, I mean that in an affectionate bear hug sort of way sort of like a 5 gallon can paint mixer.

    Sorry John. But what trump said represented a lot of Americans who are exhausted from listening to super polite, diplomatic, double-talk, eloquent exchanges that solve nothing. There is only one thing we could count on by you and your approved list of politicians. And, that was you guys standing around shaking hands after another hard fought day of accomplishing absolutely nothing.

    If you and your pals got paid on commission you'd have starved years ago.

    Aren't you all glad that moron didn't become POTUS.

    I don’t think he would have been any worse than the little o. At least race relations would not have backed up 20-30 years.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    I'm NOT saying he was the best man for the job and I certainly didn't support him in the primaries, BUT:

    1. His supreme court picks wouldn't have been as bad as Kagin and Sotomayor.
    2. Obamacare wouldn't have happened.
    3. He wouldn't have gone on a worldwide apology tour.
    4. He wouldn't have abandoned Americans in Benghazi, in fact the Benghazi attack might not have occurred.
    5. He wouldn't have invented DACA.
    6. He wouldn't have decimated our military.
    7. He wouldn't have made that stupid Iran deal.
    8. Biological males would still be constrained to use the Men's restroom regardless of their mental disease or perversion.
