Kirsters Baish| Former President Barack Obama’s half-brother, Malik Obama, doesn’t exactly have the same views as his brother, as you can tell from the photo included in this article. He raised an interesting point on Tuesday morning, asking a question about Senator John McCain that most have been too cowardly to even think about murmuring out loud. He questioned exactly what it is about McCain that makes him such a “hero.”
Malik Obama wrote on his Twitter, “If @SenJohnMcCain is such a hero why is he so silent when people disrespect the flag?”

McCain has long been praised for his military service in which he served during the Vietnam War. He was also one of many men held captive by the North Vietnamese for almost six years. It’s kind of interesting to see how things are unfolding. McCain has made himself look more like a villain than a hero in recent months.
Take this into account for every time John McCain has been given an opportunity to seize the day and become a hero to conservatives all over America, but instead chooses to side with the Democrats. Thanks to McCain’s unmistakable lean towards the Left, we are left wondering if it is simply old age and memory loss that are guiding him now, or if he had an ulterior motive all along while posing as a conservative.
When the Graham-Cassidy Obama “repeal” bill was proposed by Sens. Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham, McCain made sure to shoot it down immediately, causing the Left to actually come out and cheer for him.
Now, ultra liberals like comedian Jimmy Kimmel, a man who used his television show to poke at the “repeal” bill over and over again, is praising the old man. Ben Domenech of The Federalist even came out and said that Kimmel “has no clue what he’s talking about.” Apparently that didn’t stop the comedian.
Thank you @SenJohnMcCain for being a hero again and again and now AGAIN

It must be an honor to be dubbed a “hero” by some Hollywood celebrity that knows nothing about war and defending our country. This is an everyday occurrence for a backstabber like McCain.
It was only a couple of months ago that Senator McCain crushed a “skinny” Obamacare repeal bill. He had promised repeatedly beforehand to his constituents that he would “repeal and replace Obamacare as soon as possible.” It’s safe to say he was never going to do anything he said when it came down to it.

Even more interesting, McCain has been under attack by President Donald Trump since Trump took his place in the Oval Office back in January. Trump has expressed concern for McCain’s justified pardon of former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and for his allegations that the Obama administration had quite possibly wiretapped the Trump administration’s phones.
Back in May, McCain also drew a false equivalence between the Watergate scandal that exposed former President Richard Nixon and the ridiculous Trump-Russia investigation that the Left has been using to try to take down President Trump. Yeah, he really sounds like a true conservative to me… kidding.
McCain was quoted saying back in May, “I think it’s reaching a point of where it’s of Watergate size and scale and a couple of other scandals that you and I have seen. It’s the centipede that the shoe continues to drop. And every couple of days there’s a new aspect of this really unhappy situation.”
McCain showed his true colors… and he is definitely not a team player. I guess we shouldn’t have expected much of McCain when the whole NFL anthem protest trend began. He never really seems to stand with President Trump, let alone the veterans of our country. The truth of the matter is that McCain isn’t a hero. He is a sad man who has flip flopped his opinions in order to fit in with the Left. He can soak up all the praise from the Democrats, because he will not be getting any from Republicans, that’s for sure.
