Now that’s a pretty good day at the office for a draft dodger.
Bill Clinton was asked by some reporter how he felt about a White House aide saying John McCain’s vote on President Trump’s CIA nominee didn’t matter because McCain is dying.
You can see he didn’t intend to answer any questions, but when he hears this one he gets that little look in his eye and turns around. Too juicy a steak not to bite into it.
But this being Bill Clinton, he can’t say something about someone else without saying something about himself, and in this case trying to pump up his presidency which will, as he knows, be forgotten except for one thing. So he claimed credit for ending the Vietnam War. You know, whatever.
If it hadn’t been for John McCain, I don’t think I could have had the ability to effectively end the Vietnam War, reconcile the Vietnam, get a full accounting for all the missing in action, and many other things. And they’re now our best ally in Southeast Asia.
Thank you, John McCain, for your service to your country, and your service to Bill Clinton.
Unfortunately, it was the North Vietnamese who ended the Vietnam War, on their terms.
