Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, came to the defense of the late Sen. John McCain on Tuesday after President Donald Trump launched another verbal attack at the former war hero and POW.
"I can't understand why the president would, once again, disparage a man as exemplary as my friend John McCain: heroic, courageous, patriotic, honorable, self-effacing, self-sacrificing, empathetic, and driven by duty to family, country, and God," Romney tweeted.
Trump and McCain feuded ever since the former called into question McCain's status as a war hero during the 2016 presidential campaign. McCain, who died last August after a battle with brain cancer, also cast the deciding vote that prevented the Senate from repealing Obamacare in 2017. It has been reported McCain gave the FBI a portion of the salacious, unverified dossier about Trump shortly before Trump took office.
Trump tweeted his displeasure at McCain over the weekend, and he followed that up with more bashing in front of the White House press corps Tuesday afternoon.
