John McCain hasn’t behaved like a real conservative for years. More recently, his efforts to undermine his own party have been magnified. During the 2016 presidential campaign, McCain was an outspoken critic of his Party’s own nominee – Donald J. Trump.
It’s hard to remember the days when McCain was a role model for a lot of Republicans who strove towards adopting the great conservative values that the Arizona Senator represented.
Many conservatives have come to realize that McCain has so drastically changed his views, that he has never been leaning more left than he is now. It almost seems that McCain wants to change completely and side with Democrats in spite of President Trump.
His left-leaning remarks and efforts to undermine Trump have lead to a movement among conservative grassroots voters to have McCain removed from his Senate seat. A petition to have McCain removed from the senate is gaining traction online, already having received over 1,000 signatures.
Of course, this petition likely won’t actually have McCain removed from the Senate. However, it spells bad news for him, as it shows that the Republican base is finally starting to lose their patience with his anti-Trump efforts and left-leaning remarks.
Many believe that McCain should give up his seat in Congress to someone who represents true conservative values. It would be best for him and for a lot of conservatives that used to see him as their role model, and epitome of the conservative politician, something that he seems to have recently renounced.
No one should, however, discredit his service in the U.S. military. He will always be a military hero, but that does not mean he is eligible to serve in Congress.
But if McCain continues to harass the president throughout his entire tenure than, it seems Republicans already lost McCain to the Democrats.
