Maybe John McCain should take his own advice. He certainly has plenty for National Security Adviser Susan Rice.
According to The Hill:
“My recommendation is that from now on Susan Rice stay home with her family and not go on any of the Sunday talk shows,” said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).
McCain questions the veracity of her comments over the release of POW Bergdahl. He's entitled to his opinions, just not his own facts.
So if what's good for the goose is good for the gander, Senator McCain must also curtail his visits to the Sunday talkers due to his inaccuracies -- lies -- regarding the prisoner swap-gate.
John McCain has spent much of the past week denying that he changed his position about exchanging Taliban prisoners for American soldier Bowe Bergdahl. So he probably wasn't happy on Friday morning, when the Washington Post's official fact-checker, Glenn Kessler, sided with the people who think McCain flip-flopped on Bergdahl.
McCain told Jake Tapper on Thursday that, although he previously expressed his willingness to exchange prisoners for Bergdahl, he would never have done so if he'd known exactly which prisoners would be exchanged.
What's really amazing is that McCain claims he never knew which prisoners were going to be exchanged. This potential deal had been discussed for two years. Maybe if McCain went to briefings on the subject instead of microphones and cameras complaining he wasn't getting informed, it might help. But in this case, to say that McCain didn't know which five Taliban were to be released, or that it was for Bergdahl (he was our only POW, the last one) seems totally ludicrous to the point of being laughable.
But then he can’t object to the most important detail–the identity of the prisoners–that was known at the time he indicated his support. McCain earns an upside-down Pinocchio, constituting a flip-flop.
So, John "I talked while I was a tortured prisoner" McCain, it's time for you to refuse the politically motivated invitations to speak on the Sunday shows or else you'll be earning another upside-down Pinocchio, only this time with a big red cherry on top.
