McCain Begs America for 3 Million Twitter Followers — But What Happens Instead Is Pure Gold

SHARE

Arizona Sen. John McCain took a few seconds out of his day to stop bashing President Trump and decided to beg the nation for Twitter followers.

McCain was just 74 followers shy of three million overall – which was his target.

What happened next was something he definietly didn’t see coming.

From Gizmodo:

Around noon on Monday, McCain tweeted a call to action requesting help from his audience. “We’re only 74 Twitter followers away from 3M – spread the word & help us reach this big milestone,” he tweeted. Doing the math, that means he was sitting pretty with 2,999,926 followers at the time. At the moment, he has 2,993,757 followers and the number is rapidly declining as people see an opportunity to tell McCain what they think of him.

More from Mashable:

Only 45 percent of McCain’s followers are believed to be authentic anyways. Compare that to Trump, who commands a notorious bot army. 52 percent of Trump’s followers are believed to be real, giving him the advantage.

Humans and bots have united under a common agenda — “Ner ner ner ner ner ner.”

SocialBlade currently shows McCain at 2.98 million followers:

While the left was enamored with him for killing a ‘skinny repeal’ of Obamacare earlier this year, many progressives now want McCain to die for voting in favor of the GOP’s recently passed tax-cut bill.

It’s always the party of peace and tolerance that calls for the death of others. Funny how that works.

McCain on Hillary Clinton…

From NY Post:

Sen. John McCain said Hillary Clinton erred in writing her account of the 2016 presidential race so quickly and noted her problem is that “she doesn’t have anything to do.”

“One of the almost irresistible impulses you have when you lose is to somehow justify why you lost and how you were mistreated: ‘I did the right thing! I did!’ The hardest thing to do is to just shut up,” the Arizona Republican told Esquire magazine in an interview published Sunday .

McCain said she can’t change anything, so why is she going on?

“What’s the f–king point? Keep the fight up? History will judge that campaign, and it’s always a period of time before they do. You’ve got to move on,” he said in the interview. “This is Hillary’s problem right now: She doesn’t have anything to do.”

Hillary Clinton has been trying to shop her book, “What Happened,” which was released in September, less than a year after her stunning loss to Donald Trump.

She’s done multiple interviews blaming all kinds of people for her loss including Bernie Sanders, James Comey, the Russians, and white women.

And she just hasn’t been able to move on, somehow still seeming to hope that it can be overturned.

Clinton even called the election illegitimate in an interview with Mother Jones

From Real Clear Politics:

Look, this is the first time we have ever been attacked by a foreign adversary, and then they suffer no real consequences. And so, I’m worried that we’re not learning all the lessons –that is why I wrote the book– because I want people to at least understand what I saw as the factors, including shortcomings of myself and my campaign.

But the forces at work outside my campaign are not going away. Somebody else is going to be running for Congress, governor, and eventually president. We have to know how to protect ourselves.

BERMAN: So you have a lot of questions about the legitimacy of the election?

CLINTON: I do, sure. As we learn more about it, we know that the web of connections between people on Trump’s team and Russian representatives just gets more and more dense.

McCain is right. Hillary needs to shut up and disappear.
