Senate rejects John McCain
John McCain passed away this year, and both Democrats and Republicans mourned his death in a high-profile funeral more typical of a president’s funeral than a senator’s.
At the time, there was talk of naming the Senate Office building after McCain, and it was rumored that the name change had bipartisan support. The Washington Times reports:
Richard Russell survived another scare.
The segregationist Democrat’s name continues to adorn the Senate’s oldest office building, despite promises by top senators that this would be the year they finally erased it and replaced it with the name of their newly departed colleague Sen. John McCain.
“Nothing will overcome the loss of Senator McCain, but so that generations remember him I will be introducing a resolution to rename the Russell building after him,” Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, said on Twitter just after McCain’s office announced his death.
Four months later, the resolution was never introduced.
Mr. Schumer’s spokesman clammed up when asked what happened.
Here’s a theory as to what happened – Democrats never liked McCain, and they slandered him as a racist and misogynist when he ran for president. They found him useful only as a foil for President Trump, who McCain opposed.
But once left was done using McCain as an anti-Trump prop, they had no more use for him. It’s just another chapter in the shameful history of the modern Democrat party.
