I’m obviously not a Republican, therefore I’ve rarely seen eye to eye with John McCain on much of anything. I will say, however, that he seems to be gaining wisdom with age, and hasn’t been afraid to speak out against the extreme factions of his own party.

He did this several times during the shutdown, directly calling out the lies his party had perpetuated on the American people about the ability Republicans had to defund “Obamacare.”

Well, his criticism of the Republican antics that caused the shutdown didn’t go unnoticed, as Texas Representative Louie Gohmert went on record as saying McCain supported al Qaeda. Comments many of you might not have heard about because they seem to have been swept under the rug during the whole shutdown fiasco.

During an interview on NBC’s Nightly News, McCain was asked about Gohmert’s comments, and he had quite the response about the ridiculous accusation:
“Sometimes comments like that are made out of malice, but if someone has no intelligence, I don’t view it as being a malicious statement.”

And make no mistake about it, Louie Gohmert has absolutely no intelligence. He’s a racist bigot who thrives on making one asinine comment after another.

You can find the same story in dozens of places on the web - here's a link to the story on CNN:

And here's a link to the story on a right wing extremist news source:

You might consider googling a story before you ridicule it as false.
