[Ed. – And to think he was well on his to becoming a Democrat himself.]

Sen. John McCain lashed out at President Donald Trump this week for not “standing up to defy hate and bigotry.”…

McCain has made it a habit of slamming Trump on just about everything the President does or plans to do. His criticism this week proved little more than another barb from the self-appointed racially-righteous choir of politicians, entertainers and athletes. But McCain doesn’t have such a squeaky-clean family lineage when it comes to maintaining the racial high ground.

McCain’s great-great grandfather fought for the Confederacy in the Civil War as a private for the Mississippi Cavalry division. The elder McCain’s unit served missions at the pleasure of Lieutenant General Nathan Bedford Forrest. …

McCain also was a war deserter and was eventually captured as a prisoner of war.
