Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) became visibly angry when Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked him if his relationship with President Donald Trump has become “so frayed” that he would refuse to support anything the president is trying to accomplish.
He snapped at Doocy, saying, “Why would you say something that stupid? Why would you ask something that dumb?”
The Arizona senator added:
“My job as a United States senator — you mean I am somehow going to behave in a way that I’m going to block everything because of some personal disagreement? That’s a dumb question.”
Trump and McCain have been publicly feuding in recent months, particularly after the latest effort to repeal and replace Obamacare failed in Congress.
Most recently, McCain took a thinly veiled jab at Trump’s “half-baked, spurious nationalism.” That led Trump to issue an ominous warning to McCain.
“People have to be careful, because at some point, I fight back,” Trump said during a radio interview. “I’m being very, very nice. But at some point, I fight back, and it won’t be pretty.”
