The most important: the story will probably insult the President of Trump lobbed to John McCain

nearvideo trump on John McCain: “I’m not a fan’

We hear from the dead all the time in Congress.

Those who have passed, are part of the daily lingo on Capitol Hill.

The senator’s office is over in Hard. The Republicans will meet in the Mansfield room. Cannon Rotunda? I thought you said that the live recording was made in the Russell Rotunda. You go to the hearing in the Longworth?

Here is a key to decrypt the references:

The Hart Senate Office Building is named after the late Sen. Phil Hart (D-MI). Mansfield room is a formal room in the Capitol, named after the last Senate majority Leader Mike Mansfield (D-MT). The cannon rotunda in the Cannon House Office Building, named after the last House Speaker Joe Cannon (R-IL). The Russell Rotunda in the Russell Senate Office Building, to be named sen. Richard Russell (D-GA). TV news crews often don’t live hits and interviews of the two rotundas. And the Longworth House Office Building, named after the late speaker Nicholas Longworth (R-OH).


Statues of the late Congress-figures, American presidents, and other people, the historic significance of the saturation of the Capitol complex. President Ronald Reagan and Martin Luther King Jr. in the Capitol Rotunda. Rosa Parks and Thomas Edison in the Statuary Hall. Sakakawea and Helen Keller in the Capitol Visitor’s Center.


I have recently dug out two dusty CD’s from the public radio stories that I have about the Congress between 2004 and 2006. What I noticed about this aural time capsules, was how many legislators spoke of the grave in the reports:

Sens. Ted Stevens (R-AK), George Voinovich (R-OH), Daniel Akaka (D-HI), Craig Thomas (R-WY), Ted Kennedy (D-MA) and Pete Domenici (R-NM), along with reps. John Dingell (D-MI), Steven LaTourette (R-OH), Vern Ehlers (R-MI), Leonard Boswell (D-IA) and Julia Carson (D-IN).

We talk about the deceased all the time.

Senators invoke the “Byrd rule” in the discussion of the complex budget reconciliation process, named after the last Senate majority Leader Robert Byrd (D-WV). The “Byrd rule” bars provisions before a budget reconciliation measure, adding significantly to the deficit. Joe Cannon comes much too late. Cannon faced a rebellion from lawmakers after he ran the house with an iron fist. The establishment of the “motion to recommit” or “MTR” grew, the insurgency. A MTR is to kill the last chance for the minority party to or modify the provisions of law on the ground. Some Democrats want to change the MTR as the Republicans have prevailed recently on both MTR on the floor, against the wishes of most Democrats.


To bring this all because President Trump again railing about the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ).


McCain seems to have crawled under the President of the skin. And so Mr. Trump to unload broadsides against the late senator and 2008 GOP presidential candidate. President Trump has said that he “never liked McCain,” the resurgence of an old feud with the Arizona Republican. The President did not hit at McCain for the support of a Republican effort to repeal and replace Obamacare. As a result, a host of lawmakers from both parties rally to the defense of McCain, who placed in the state are now, in the Capitol Rotunda at the end of last summer.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to rename the Russell Senate Office Building, according to McCain.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is one of President Trump, the biggest donor, and perhaps McCain’s most loyal colleagues. But Graham, “says that he is like” if the President, the attacks of his deceased friend.


In an interview with Georgia Public Broadcasting, Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA) called Mr. Trump’s attack on McCain’s “unfortunate” and “harmful.”

Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called McCain “a rare patriot and a real American hero” via Twitter. However, some criticized McConnell for only defended McCain, and not denounced, Mr. Trump, the dispar management.

To publish the President of the aggressive convictions of McCain forced even the McCain Institute for International leadership, associated with Arizona State University, a press release with the title “The facts About John McCain.” The missive spoke of McCain’s military service, time as a prisoner of war and contain a lengthy justification of the senator, your position on health care.

“John McCain is against Obamacare and fully supports” and replace,'” stamped cancel the release. “John McCain voted against the bill, presented to the U.S. Senate – his famous” thumbs down “– because the waiver was’,’ without ‘replace.'”

In an interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business, President, Trump reiterated that he is “not a fan” of McCain, even suggesting that the excitement about McCain in the press is to blame.

To bring “your people,” the President said.

But President Trump, the back started tearing McCain after a period of rest.

“What he did to the Republican party and the nation, the sick people could have had great health … Not good,” said Mr. Trump.

It is not surprising to deceased lawmakers in Washington. So many of them are etched in the day-to-day patter of Capitol Hill, that most people who know you Express their name, probably not even much about the name, you’re talking about a room or a building, to the. Rayburn. Dirksen. LBJ. And it can’t be long until something is in the Senate named John McCain. It is as if these characters are somehow still alive, influenced the events.

There is a thing in Star Wars about the dead. On several occasions, those who have passed on sometimes back as a “force Ghost.” You speak the live and stage events from the grave.

After Darth Vader cut down Obi-Wan Kenobi in a lightsaber duel, the latter returned about metempsychosis as a force spirit. Kenobi periodically shows up again, pointed Luke Skywalker from beyond the grave.

Death in Congress is a bit like what happens in Star Wars.

People are still talking about “Sarbanes-Oxley”, a large piece of the consumer and financial regulations of the legislation. It is named after the former Sen. Paul Sarbanes (D-MD) and the late Rep. Mike Oxley (R-OH) , crafted the measure. Every college student in the country knows the “Pell Grant”, named after the late Sen. Claiborne Pell (D-RI). The Americans have long developed tax-free “Roth IRA held” by the late Sen. William Roth (R-DE). The “Hyde amendment” is a provision, sponsored by the late Republic, Henry Hyde (R-IL) to prohibit the use of Federal dollars for abortions. There are even some “McCain-Feingold.” McCain, along with former Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI) to the regulation of election campaign financing.

Legislative and Congressional infrastructure in the rule, to hear where we continue to be one of the former conductors, the impact on the daily lives of Americans, long after they died. President Trump the fixation of McCain is different. Mr Trump routine changes the rules of the game in politics.


No one can call back if any other President lobbed a shame towards the end of Senate majority Leader Everett Dirksen (R-IL), or late House Speaker Sam Rayburn (D-TX). But it is likely that historians will remember the insult to President Trump lobbed at McCain.
