McCain slammed President Donald Trump’s attacks on the media this week by noting dictators “get started by suppressing free press.” McCain is responding to news that Trump has started a was with American press for weeks now, where earlier, Trump twitter, the name of several American press organization and calling them the enemy of the people.

McCain, a GOP, is criticizing Trump, a President from the GOP, where much of GOP is frightened and therefore, criticism from other GOP of Trump is rare. Most GOP are content to live with Trump, as long as Trump support their agenda, so there is a broad, pay for play with Trump, meaning the GOP support Trump, so GOP gets to play with policies they like from Trump.

However, the Putin and Trump bromance, is a great concern to those GOP in the national security and intelligence area. One of these is McCain, who at the Munich meet, lay out the danger the West is facing, with Trump as the President.

“I hate you especially. But the fact is we need you. We need a free press. We must have it. It’s vital.” But he continued, “If you want to preserve — I’m very serious now — if you want to preserve democracy as we know it, you have to have a free and many times adversarial press,” McCain said in the interview. “And without it, I am afraid that we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time. That’s how dictators get started.”
