Why not? It's the only sort of thing that gets to Trump. He is extraordinarily thin-skinned.

Yeah thought that was incredibly lame and pathetic. In addition to McCain being a total cunt as well.

Because as someone below the tweet said, glorifying a racist warmonger to hurt Trump's feelings isn't really beneficial for anyone.

When he moved to the US?

Might've always been shit on Twitter though? He's far more of a collaborator than a writer himself, like.

Yeah. One of the most frustrating phenomena of the Trump era has been all the centrist liberals becoming gleeful apologists for every right-wing figure or institution that they perceive as an enemy of Trump, from George W. Bush to the Queen to the fucking FBI. The rehabilitation of John McCain as a benevolent old grandpa tutting at Trump's antics from heaven is especially bone-headed, and yeah, it's disappointing to see Armando Iannucci sinking down to that level, just as it was to see him defending Alastair Campbell against the villainy of Jeremy Corbyn a couple of weeks ago.

Quote
Twenty-four immigrants have died in ICE custody during the Trump administration, according to an NBC News analysis of federal data. At least four others, including Medina Leon, died shortly after being released from ICE custody. The number of in-custody deaths remains below the peak of 32 deaths in 2004, the first full calendar year records were kept.

The tally does not include migrants, including five children, who have died in the custody of other federal agencies.

The recent spate of deaths comes as the number of immigrants in federal custody hits a record high. As of early June, ICE was detaining more than 52,500 immigrants a day in a sprawling network of more than 200 detention centers across the country — up from about 34,000 under the Obama administration.

Immigrants held by ICE are civil detainees, not criminal, and their detention is not intended to be punitive. The Department of Homeland Security's inspector general reiterated that fact in a report released this week that found "egregious violations" at two detention centers it inspected, including nooses in detainee cells, inadequate medical care, rotten food and other conditions that endangered detainee health.

Employees of both DHS and ICE have raised concerns about lapses in medical oversight and neglect that put immigrants at risk of harm or death, according to interviews and internal documents.

Quote
Donald Trump claims his administration’s heavy-handed immigration policies make us safer. But a criminal trial in Arizona this week shows that, in the Trump era, safety has lost its meaning. Federal prosecutors are pursuing criminal charges against activist Scott Daniel Warren for doing nothing more than giving food, water and shelter to migrants trekking through the desert. The stakes are high for Warren and for everyone concerned about unrestrained border policing.

But it's not just migrants and those trying to save their lives who need to be afraid.

Terrill Thomas died April 24, 2016, after being deprived of water for seven days.
In a 2017 inquest, inmates testified that they heard the 38-year-old begging for water for days, and jail officials said they were unaware the water to his cell had been turned off. Three county officials have since been sentenced to jail, according to local reports.

They're not fucking glorifying him, they're just sticking his name up as a joke. McCain is basically irrelevant to the thing - it could have been Peewee Herman, if Trump had an irrational hatred of him.

There always were liberals 4 McCain, going back his race against GWB in 2000 for the Republican nomination.

When he died he also got praise from AOC.

"Maverick " John Mc Cain voted with Trump 83% of the time.

I think we can all agree Trump is shit, but one redeeming characteristic is his constant trolling of Mc Cain even when dead.  The constant

" HOW DARE YOU SPEAK BADLY OF THE GREAT JOHN MC CAIN"

posturing from the media is always amusing especially Tapper.

El Presidento, doing a Chamberlin, holdin, in his little hand, a piece of paper, with the "Secret" details of his Mexico plan... which have now been largely deciphered and put on-line, teehee. (Nothing very exciting in his secret plan)

He's like Malcolm Tucker being photographed holding Mr Tickel's medical records. He's literally beyond satire.

O God knows, God alone knows. It's an exhausting task trying to figure out what's really goin' on with this crowd; imputing any kind of rationality or joined-up thinking.
