McCain Gets Blindsided By AZ State Rep Who Says He’s ‘Disrespecting Voters’

Many feel that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has let down the voters who took his promises at face value and now see him fighting President Donald Trump at every term and not fulfilling the promises he made.

Even his local state Republicans are now starting to call him out.

McCain is disrespecting his constituents, says Arizona State Rep. Bob Thorpe.

He listed how McCain had failed or gone back on promises to the people.

From Townhall:

Thorpe said McCain’s criticism of President Trump’s pardon of former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was unwarranted, given that his predecessor [Obama] pardoned a record 1,927. Moreover, he argued, Arpaio was convicted of following state and federal laws regarding immigration enforcement—Obama’s pardons on the on the hand included people who revealed national secrets and broke financial fraud laws as well as narcotics laws.

Not to mention terrorists, like FALN leader Oscar Lopez Rivera, whose group murdered Americans and were suspected in over 120 bombings across the country. Obama commuted his sentence despite the fact that he was unrepentant.

The Arizona Republican said he can forgive McCain for “slandering Arpaio by pushing the false narrative that he was found guilty of profiling Latinos” but not for “his failure to protect Americans from those who have not shown respect for the rule of U.S. laws.” Thorpe was referring to the Americans murdered at the hands of illegal immigrants such as Kate Steinle and Jamal Shaw.

McCain, Thorpe said, had clearly forgotten his 2016 campaign promise to “build the danged fence.”

That’s not the only promise McCain forgot, according to Thorpe.

“In a melodramatic reversal of his earlier votes, McCain in July condemned the American people to [continue] suffering under unaffordable health insurance premiums and unattainable deductibles,” he wrote. “Just like his promise to build the “danged fence,” his promise to repeal and replace the failing Obamacare appears to have only been hyperbolic campaign rhetoric.”

Then McCain added more, appearing to characterize Antifa after Charlottesville in positive terms.

Thorpe noted the damage they cause.

“Radical, violent mobs seeking to destroy our history have been taking their toll on our republic. But so are the elected officials who encourage them, as well as those in our Republican Congress who don’t want to do the job we elected them to do, who instead spend their time defying the president and his agenda.”

Well said, Rep. Thorpe!
