Ronald Reagan’s Eleventh Commandment, which holds that “Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican” appears obsolete in Donald Trump’s America.
CBS News reports that “Sen. John McCain accused fellow Republican Sen. Rand Paul of ‘working for Vladimir Putin’ on Wednesday.”
“The fireworks came as McCain spoke in support of a Senate unanimous consent request in support of Montenegro’s bid to join NATO. The libertarian-leaning Paul, who has often advocated for a less interventionist foreign policy, opposes the resolution.”
Said McCain, “He has no justification for his objection to having a small nation be part of NATO that is under assault from the Russians….The senator from Kentucky is now working for Vladimir Putin.”
“McCain and Paul have battled over foreign policy issues in the past. In a February interview with ABC News, for example, Paul said that McCain has ‘advocated for war everywhere’ and that the U.S. would ‘be in perpetual war’ if McCain were ‘in charge.’ ”
