image for CNN anchor hits Trump: He didn't go to Vietnam 'until he was in his 70s' with 'Secret Service protection'

"Trump again slamming the late senator John McCain today, he says, for trying to derail his run for the presidency in 2016.".

Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier “is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain.”

He had far worse “stains” than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!

"No one will ever love you the way they loved my father...." McCain's daughter, Meghan, tweeted on Saturday.

But Cabrera noted on CNN that other Republican voices "have been quiet" regarding Trump's attacks on a senator who was deeply critical of him.

McCain, who served in Vietnam before embarking on a long career in public service, died in August at the age of 81 after a battle with brain cancer.

Trump has occasionally brought up McCain's vote against the GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare since his death. »

In 4Q18, the average new car loan in the US was $545 per month and $387 per month on average for a used vehicle.

Democrats hit the gas on Net neutrality bill

Authored by

Rep. Mike Doyle, who's shepherding the Democrats' bill in the House of Representatives to restore the Obama-era net neutrality protections, says he's not waiting for Republican support before bringing the proposed legislation to a vote.

Doyle: Republicans made no effort to come to me to say let's sit down and work together on a net neutrality bill.

I don't know the president's personal views on net neutrality, I would assume that like most Americans he's for it. »
