Same Liberal Media That Called John McCain a Racist and Islamophobe — Praise Him as Hero in Death

In 2008 the liberal mainstream media did everything they could to denigrate and slander John McCain and lift Barack Obama into the White House.

Despite the fact that McCain was a weak candidate that didn’t stop the media from slandering him as a racist and Islamophobe.

Via Teen Vogue:
According to a 2000 San Francisco Gate report, McCain, who spent 5 and half years in a North Vietnamese prison camp during the Vietnam War, referred to his captors as “g**ks” when speaking with reporters at a press conference.

The left accused him of racism for comparing Iranian President Ahmadinejad to a monkey.

And later the Huffington Post accused him of leading racists and anti-semites.

More hatred from the liberal media.

A TIME Magazine photographer in 2008 purposely adjusted the light on candidate McCain to make him look old as death.

But the liberal media will praise him as their favorite Republican ever this week after his death for two reasons.
1.) He lost to Obama.
2.) He hated President Trump.
