When it comes to Arizona Sen. John McCain, not all Americans are hoping for a swift recovery. In fact, a member of the Republican National Committee added the word “Amen” to her retweet of an online article calling on the former prisoner-of-war to die.
The national committeewoman for the Republican Party of Nevada on Monday appeared to call for Sen. John McCain’s death. Diana Orrock, a former candidate for state assemblywoman who now serves as the state’s GOP committeewoman praisingly retweeted a Medium article about McCain’s hawkish military views, titled, “Please Just Fucking Die Already.” As a caption to the tweet, Orrock added: “Amen.” Orrock is an unwavering supporter of President Trump, having once told CNBC she would withdraw support for any Republican who … backed off supporting the then-nominee over his infamous “grab her by the pussy” audio tapes; and McCain is often viewed as a top GOP critic of the president.
She has since deleted the tweet, but nothing is ever really memory-holed in the cyber world.
If you’re waiting for the part where I say I’m just kidding and would never wish death on anybody, please allow me to make myself clear: I sincerely, genuinely hope that Arizona Senator John McCain’s heart stops beating, and that he is subsequently declared dead by qualified medical professionals very soon.
Republicans and civility. The divorce is final.
