Lindsey Graham Gives Touching Tribute to John McCain on Senate Floor. Then, He Gets a Phone Call From Trump.

Published

The mainstream media has been all over the McCain-Trump feud following the news that McCain had discontinued cancer treatment and later passed away…as if that had anything to do with the Senator’s passing.

While Trump did attract quite a bit of attention (that, let’s face it, the media were dying to give him), for ordering the White House flags back up to full mass before McCain had been buried, he has otherwise been fairly respectful as Washington mourns the loss of a great hero and American patriot.

In fact, in what seems to be a pretty uncharacteristically gracious move for Trump, he called Sen. Lindsey Graham following Graham’s emotional tribute to McCain on the Senate floor Tuesday.

Trump, Graham said, was incredibly kind and clearly felt the impact of McCain’s loss despite their history.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., revealed President Trump called him after he gave an emotional tribute to the late Sen. John McCain on the Senate floor Tuesday.

“He called yesterday after my speech and he couldn’t have been nicer,” Graham told CNN on Wednesday. “He said, ‘That was very sad. I just wanted to let you know that you did right by your friend.’ I said, ‘Thank you, Mr. President.’”

Graham found himself in a unique situation being close friends with McCain, who was a strong critic of the president’s, while being an ally to Trump, who had been disparaging of McCain.

“I regret the relationship between the two. John is my dearest friend in the world and I’m going to try to help President Trump … When he says something bad about John, it pisses me off,” Graham said.

Graham said he doesn’t agree with people who tell him he can’t honor McCain if he isn’t fighting Trump.

The majority of the press will most likely overlook this kind gesture, but it’s certainly worth mentioning that Trump is able to feel for his cohorts in Washington who were close to McCain and loved him.

Suspected Terrorist Murders Three In Attack At French Church, Mayor Wants To Oust ‘Islamo-Fascism’

Three individuals were murdered in cold blood in Nice, France on Thursday in what looks to be the third terrorist attack on French soil in the past month. A man armed with a knife walked into Notre Dame Basilica in Nice and killed two people, fatally wounding a third individual who was able to get outside before dying. French police are treating the incident as a terrorist attack. “Everything leads us to believe it was a terrorist attack within the Notre Dame basilica,” Mayor of Nice Christian Estrosi posted on social media. Here’s more on this from The Daily Wire: Several French media outlets reported that at least one of the victims of the attack was beheaded, mirroring an attack earlier this month in which a French schoolteacher was beheaded by a suspected Islamic radical. Police captured the attacker soon after the incident, shooting him in the shoulder and transporting him to a local hospital, according to The Guardian. Estrosi said that while the man was being taken into custody, he repeatedly yelled “Allahu Akbar.” “We have two people killed inside the church … and a third person who was in a bar facing the church where she had taken refuge,” Estrosi told the media. “Enough is enough … we have to remove this Islamo-fascism from our territory.” On Oct. 16, an 18-year-old man beheaded French history teacher Samuel Paty outside of the secondary school where he taught. Paty was killed after showing caricatures of the Prophet Muhammed to his class for a lesson on free expression. “Before it was a school professor, this time the Islamo-fascist barbarism chose to attack inside a church. Again, it is very symbolic,” the mayor said. Toward the end of the month of September, a suspected terrorist with a butcher’s knife seriously wounded two…

Luxury Buildings Hire Armed Guards In Preparation For Election Day Madness

Published

on

The ultra-rich in the city of New York have been preparing for the possibility of civil unrest on Election Day next, hiring armed guards to watch over luxury buildings in Manhattan. Managers over at the Time Warner Center, located on Columbus Circle — where penthouse apartments are only a measly $62.5 million — are deploying off-duty police officers armed with “submachine guns” to keep an eye on things. Other homes and buildings for the wealthy are taking other measures to increase security. “Everybody is worried about security,” an insider said to reporters. “Every top building is adding security. It’s out of control. We hope it won’t be needed, but we will be ready.” The insider said the building is currently working with the NYPD and Homeland Security. “There will be officers with submachine guns,” the source stated. “We’ve always had immense security, but there will be more. We’ll have extra patrols. The entire building can be shut down with one button.” via Fox News: Many buildings are hiring off duty cops instead of private security companies because they fear a repeat of Denver, where a private guard shot and killed a protester, said one real estate insider. “The NYPD is advising buildings to get the extra security,” the source said. “They’ve never done this before.” Other top buildings, such as 220 Central Park South, which is home to hedge funder Ken Griffin’s $238 million condo, say they are already well guarded but will take extra precautions, like keeping entrances locked at night, and only open to residents. How sad is it that folks are terrified about their physical safety and for the property they own simply because of a national election, which is one of the many privileges of living in a republic? We, unlike many nations, get to choose…
