After Trump sided with Putin over his own intelligence agencies as to whether Russia attempted to influence the 2016 election, McCain accused the president of abasing himself “abjectly before a tyrant.”

Today’s press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate. But it is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake.

Even before Trump’s election, McCain accused him of “firing up the crazies” with his belligerent stances on immigration.
