John McCain is acting bogus again.
Sen. McCain is a self-proclaimed “Maverick” who believes he’s a renegade of the current political climate, and yet also claims to be a leader of the Republican Party.
And he recently used his longstanding tenure in the Senate as a power-play to sit in on the James Comey hearing.
However, here’s the thing – Sen. McCain isn’t even on the Senate Intelligence Committee.
But the 80-year-old public official pulled the “Look, I know what I’m doing you young whippersnappers” card anyways because he’s trying to stay relevant – and knew the hearing would be highly publicized.
And when it was finally McCain’s turn to question Comey, his line of questioning was so absurd and incoherent, it left everyone scratching their heads.
The New York Post reported:
“Sen. John McCain startled onlookers on Thursday as he appeared to conflate the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the campaign with the closed probe into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
McCain said he was troubled that Comey had closed the Clinton investigation while the probe into Russia and possible ties to the Trump campaign remained open.
‘You reached that conclusion as far as Secretary Clinton was concerned, but you’re not reaching a conclusion as far as this administration is concerned,’ McCain said.
Comey pointed out that the two probes were not connected.
Viewers went wild on Twitter, with some speculating about the 80-year-old’s health.
‘That was amazing for so many reasons, but the surprise ending is that John McCain was revealed to be…not quite…all there,’ tweeted author Maureen Johnson.
McCain later blamed his apparent sluggishness on staying up late for the Arizona Diamondbacks MLB game, which ended 1:28 a.m. Thursday Washington DC time.
His team won.
‘I get the sense from Twitter that my line of questioning today went over people’s heads. Maybe going forward I shouldn’t stay up late watching Diamondbacks night games,’ he said in a statement.
‘What I was trying to get at was whether Mr. Comey believes that any of his interactions with the President rise to the level of obstruction of justice,’ he added.”
No, it’s not going over people’s heads. His line of thought perplexed literally everybody from both sides of the aisle.
But then he also conceded he shouldn’t have stayed up so late to watch a baseball game before one of the most anticipated hearings in recent years.
McCain can’t have it both ways here.
Either the people didn’t understand, or he’s blaming his incoherence on getting little sleep the night before.
Rep. Brad Sherman from California was in disbelief during McCain’s questioning and you could clearly see it on his face.
And this is what Marco Rubio looked like during McCain’s jibberish.

McCain’s constituents must truly be embarrassed. They should probably think about voting someone else in when his term is up.
