Senator John McCain did not have a strong showing on Thursday. It seemed that he got the Hillary private email server investigation confused with the Russian investigation. Does John McCain even know what planet he is on?
McCain said it bothered him that Comey closed the Clinton investigation while the Russian probe is still open and possible ties to the Trump campaign remain open.
Per New York Post:
“You reached that conclusion as far as Secretary Clinton was concerned, but you’re not reaching a conclusion as far as this administration is concerned,” McCain said.
Comey pointed out that the two probes were not connected.
Viewers went wild on Twitter, with some speculating about the 80-year-old’s health.
“That was amazing for so many reasons, but the surprise ending is that John McCain was revealed to be…not quite…all there,” tweeted author Maureen Johnson.
McCain later blamed his apparent sluggishness on staying up late for the Arizona Diamondbacks MLB game, which ended 1:28 a.m. Thursday Washington DC time.
His team won.
“I get the sense from Twitter that my line of questioning today went over people’s heads. Maybe going forward I shouldn’t stay up late watching Diamondbacks night games,” he said in a statement.
“What I was trying to get at was whether Mr. Comey believes that any of his interactions with the President rise to the level of obstruction of justice,” he added.

Does John McCain Even Know What Planet He Is On?
What a disaster of a showing by Senator John McCain. Have to give Comey credit in this instance. The fact he was able to make any sense out of John McCain's rant is impressive. He made no sense and may God have mercy on his soul.
Senator John McCain makes a great case for term limits time and time again.
