John Butt-Hurt McCain is tired of answering questions about President-Elect Trump.
Thus the McCain Trump riff continues. If Trump were a prick like McCain, I’d accuse McCain of penis envy.
Journalist Sabrina Siddiqui noted what McCain said to reporters, when he was asked about President-Elect Trump:
A testy John McCain to reporters: "I will not speak about Donald Trump, and I do not want to be asked again."

So now who doesn’t have the temperament to be president? That’s right, the man who failed in 2008.
They call McCain a “maverick.” But let’s face it, the term has become a term for “grumpy old fart.”
McCain: “Keep your dogs OFF MY LAWN!”
Passerby: “We’re on the sidewalk, you old moron…AND GET SOME CLOTHES ON!”
Kristina Wong tweeted about crotchety old McCain.
McCain in classic McCain form today: Don't ask me about Trump, and tell all your friends to stop asking me about Trump.

But here’s the tweet I find most compelling.
Can someone tell John McCain it's part of his duties as US Senator to serve as a check on presidents? https://t.co/5JZCChow2o

Has McCain ever gotten tired of being asked questions about Obama? Doubtful. He’s been too busy tossing Obama’s salad.
Recently however, McCain took time to respond to something involving Trump.
As Politico explains, McCain may be as interested in the Russian hacking as Hillary Clinton:
GOP Sen. John McCain called for forming a select committee on Sunday to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“I would like, in an ideal world, to have a select committee,” the Arizona Republican told John Dickerson on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
And guess who McCain got to join him, and with whom these two old ladies decided to partner?
McCain and Graham joined incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) earlier Sunday morning in calling for an investigation. McCain told Dickerson that he didn’t know what to make of President-elect Donald Trump’s comments in a Fox News Sunday interview that the idea that the Russians worked to help elect him was “ridiculous.”
McCain said to Face the Nation,
“I don’t know what to make of it because it’s clear the Russians interfered…Whether they intended to interfere to the degree that they were trying to elect a certain candidate, I think that’s a subject of investigation. But facts are stubborn things. They did hack into this campaign.”
Apparently McCain is happy to talk about Trump, when it serves Liberals’ agenda.
