Congressman Cleaver Introduces Resolution Calling On President Trump to Apologize to Senator McCain

Cleaver, in a bipartisan effort with Congressman Walter Jones, Encourages White House To Show Civility

(May 17, 2018 - Washington, D.C.) – Congressmen Emanuel Cleaver, II (D-MO) and Walter Jones (R-NC) introduced H. Res. 901 calling on and encouraging the White House to issue a public apology to Senator John McCain for comments made by White House Communication’s Aide Kelly Sadler. The resolution, of which a draft can be found here, states;

“Whereas, on May 10, 2018 in response to Senator John McCain’s call for fellow senators to oppose the nomination of Gina Haspel to lead the Central Intelligence Agency because she oversaw the agency’s use of torture, White House Communications Aide Kelly Sadler was widely reported to have stated, ‘It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway’.”

Congressmen Cleaver and Jones believe Senator McCain served honorably in the United States Navy and deserves dignity and respect.

“The President, perhaps more so than any elected official in this great country, should practice the politics of decency,” said Congressman Cleaver.

“These comments are outrageous and unacceptable,” said Congressman Jones. “It’s a sad day in this country when White House officials are mocking a man who, while serving his country, was tortured as a prisoner of war. He’s more than earned the right to speak out on these matters. A public apology should be issued immediately.”

Congressman Cleaver recently made an appearance on MSNBC Live with Alex Witt in which he was asked about the climate of racially motivated incidents by police and others. The Congressman was referencing bigotry and hatred but be believes the same rules of decency apply when it comes to apologizing for one’s mistakes. He responded to Alex Witt by saying, “it starts from the top” referring to the actions and reactions from our leader-in-chief.

“The mean-spiritedness coming out of the White house is giving rise to what we are seeing because I think many people are thinking, well if the President can make these comments then right wing protestors, hate groups, and the President refusing to apologize…there’s not a parent in America who would teach their children not to apologize after they have done something wrong.”

Watch the full interview here.

Congressman Cleaver is the co-chair of the Civility Caucus and has joined other Members in a movement to revive civility on Capitol Hill.

What's interesting to me is that all of the racists will deny that they're racist while espousing a great deal of racism.

Sorry, you can't have it both ways.

The language coming out of the white house is worse than anything America has ever seen. And this same kind of talk from Obama, Clinton or anyone else wouldn't have been tolerated by the right wing.

Hypocrites all.

STFU Cleaver, when you get that fellow fat pig woman politician in Missouri who said POTUS should be killed to leave office and apologize then I might listen to you. Until then again I emphasize STFU!

“He’s not a war hero,” said Trump. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

President Bone Spurs didn't just insult McCain. He mocked ALL POWs. He has owed all of them an apology since 2015, but hasn't - so fuck him. He spits on those that were MIA or captured in service to this country. Trump is a fucking disgrace. And fuck anyone defending this asshat.

He is suppose to apologize to Cleaver for an alleged statement he may have said or may not have?

I want Obama to apologize to the American public for his awful way he ran the country for eight long, long years.

^^^^ Don't you assholes have a Hamas rally to attend to? Or perhaps you could join the next BLM riot and burn down other people's property to show your hate for all of the deplorables. Or don't you join MS-13?

No, we definitely don't defend a lot of Trump's words, but we DO defend his actions.

It was said. Even the paid liars holding daily press briefings don't deny it.

WH statements are it was handled internally and McCain's family was contacted. They don't deny it, so STFU.

Northlander said...

I voted for Trump.

That doesn't mean I liked his comments about Senator McCain during the campaign or the more recent comments from his staff. I agree they are unacceptable.

But I also think there are people just exploiting the issue for political gain. It would be more helpful if more Republicans stood up to the President and challenged him on some of his more off the wall comments like the time he talked about getting rid of gun rights and then quickly backed off.

Solution, fire the woman who said it.

Then move on.

As long as McCain remains on the field of battle he is a legitimate target. He single-handedly perpetuated the monstrosity of Obamacare and has since been a thorn in the side of replacing Obama's corrupt regime with Trump's appointees. SO piss on Cleaver. If McCain wants peace he can resign and shut up.

As a taxpayer, I’d like an apology from Cleaver the Turd for defaulting on his car wash loan. Mouthy pos. He and Maxine need to be set on a slow boat back to mother Africa.

10:14 Cleaver’s run into trouble on the car wash before – he fell behind on his taxes in 2002 and 2003, as well as 2004 and 2005.

Still can’t believe McCain has brain cancer. I have followed his political career closely and never seen him exhibit any evidence that he has a brain. He has been a liberal democrat in republican clothing for a long time. The libs want the Administration to tell the truth and what this aide allegedly said is 100% true. Sorry car wash,nothing to apologize for.

"No, we definitely don't defend a lot of Trump's words, but we DO defend his actions."

First that's quite a concession. Words don't matter anymore? Politicians aren't accountable for their statements? Wow.

But let's move to the second point. You defend his actions. Which would those be?

Fully funding Planned Parenthood again? Sending more troops to Afghanistan? Not building a wall on the US / Mexican border? Sending troops to Niger, Yemen and Syria without Congressional approval? Get soldiers killed in those same counties without finding those responsible? Increasing deficits back to $1 trillion annually? Keeping Obamacare? Operating pay to play deals to foreign counties and corporations? Disclosing top secret foreign intelligence from Israel to Russia? Keeping NAFTA? Not jump starting GDP to 4, 5 or 6% as promised? Playing more rounds of golf in his first 18 months than Obama did in his first 4 years.

Trump's shitty actions are different than his blowhard pronouncements and tweets, but they are equally shitty (if not worse) in their own right.

Wet Start McCain set a ship on fire and had to leave it because the crew wanted to kill him. His admiral dad saved his ass. Then he became a POW that informed on his fellow prisoners. Look it up. You too Mr. Car Wash Cleavage.

Cleaver needs to not only apologize to the taxpayers for his incompetence but also reimburse the taxpayers for his failed investments that the taxpayers foot the bill on. Things like the car wash and back taxes.

Nah. North Korean breakthrough diplomacy, changing the failed joke-policy of Hillary/Obama in the middle east, economic takeoff (Obama's disastrous economy being corrected), and all under the pressure of a nonstop effort to unseat him by an unhinged and corrupt establishment media/entertainment complex.

I could go on, but why? You're locked into the same impotent Trump-hate that guarantees his landslide reelection. You have to have an issue besides that.

Face it. You're the failed party of transgender bathrooms.

^^Check it @7:53AM, you can't go on because there is nothing more to go on about. North Korean diplomacy? Really? Wake up dope! Kim understands that there is currently a moron in the Presidency, and his playing him like a fool! He will drag out this so-call peace talks for as long as he can. Meanwhile he is making more missiles and bombs and continuing to enrich uranium all the while. The stock market has STILL not gone up as much as it did under Obama. You have a computer, you can look that up. The disastrous economy was Bush's and Obama help save it. Go ahead dope go check that out. An effort to unseat him by a corrupt establishment?? Ha ha ha ! 19 indictments already, 4 plea agreements and a host of cooperating witness. Yea, the most corrupt administration ever is more like it. Grow up dummy, you backed a criminal moron, and like him, you're too much of an idiot to admit it. You know it. I know it. We all know it.

Anonymous said...

Yes, yes, I know, dear. St. Obama can do no wrong, and Trump is the devil. Yawn.

I actually didn't vote for Trump, but I will next time. I voted for Obama once, before he broke his promises and showed his nonstop incompetence.

Corrupt? You may want to check the NYT and the WSJ this week. You know, while you're getting all informed on the internet. ;) As the Mueller fiasco evaporates, it's becoming clear that the Obama DOJ is guilty of crimes far worse than Watergate.

The Inspector General's report will be out in a couple of weeks, and you better be ready. I almost have to admire it. The scandal-ridden Obama DOJ actually put spies in the Trump campaign. Hell, Nixon went down for a silly half assed break in!

Anyway, you sound stressed. Take it easy. It'll all be fine.

^^OK but 19 indictments, 4 plea agreements, hush money to whores, campaign finance violations, Russian mob money, pay to play contributions, multiple cooperating witnesses, and everything is fine! Nothing to see here! NO COLLUSION! WITCH HUNT!!!!

OK 8:19AM, you can call them spies, I choose to call them undercover operatives. It's obvious they put spies in the camping because the campaign committee was corrupt as hell! Look at everyone who has been indicted. Those spies fucking worked!

We didn't meet any Russians. OK, there was just a low level coffee boy meeting with Russians at Trump tower. OK, it was actually Don Jr, Jared Kushner, and campaign manager Paul Manafort, but we only talked about adoptions. OK, we actually went to the meeting because they promised dirt on Hillary and we RSVPed in email that we loved it. OK, they didn't give us any dirt, so we didn't tell Donald. I don't know who we talked to on blocked number phone calls after the meeting. We didn't pursue it and our candidate was only joking when he publicly asked Russia to find 30,000 Hillary emails to sink her campaign. Oh, and we didn't make up with cover stories on the campaign plane with Hope Hicks.

It's nothing but lies and ever changing stories to cover up "no collusion". If they did nothing wrong, why do they act sooooo guilty?

Because they are. The collusion was in plain sight. It would be easier for Trumpers to believe if it was a conspiracy led by a pedophile ring at a pizza shop and the meeting notes were written on a fake birth certificate.

North Korean breakthrough diplomacy????

Only if you count telling a dictator that he acted with honor by taking US hostages (on Trump's watch no less). He complimented Rocketman on treating prisoners well, when he sent them to forced labor camps. Obama brought home multiple prisoners on multiple occasions alive. Trump's breakthrough? The first hostage Trump got released came home in a body bag. Are you brain dead? As a Trump supporter, I guess that's a given.

Trump has accomplished nothing in North Korea. Trump hasn't even had a meeting with North Korea yet. Meetings this week were cancelled and the June meeting is in serious doubt. Trump outsourced the talking to China and South Korea. Stopping clearing the mantel for a Nobel he is not winning. Trump's foreign policy is a joke and he is a disgrace.

He still owes all POWs an apology for his mocking and insults. He also owes gold star families he insulted and lied to apologies, including the wife of the Army Ranger killed in Niger. He owes disabled veterans apologies (and money) for the fake charities and fund raising he welshed on. The Bone Spur Coward is a fucking disgrace to this country and the military.

@6:28 should be banned. That lie is the worst sort of vile accusation to make.

The guest that went on Fox News and slandered McCain with the despicable conspiracy lie that he gave up his fellow POWs by talking to the enemy was banned from future appearances on Fox News.

You too are spitting on American hero POWs and can go fuck yourself.

These Trump repukelicans make me sick. Any candidate that excuses this crap will never get another vote from those that support the military.

Lynn devine at fairway independent mortgage aka Patricia Lynn devine at 1st national bank and trust in junction city kansas aka exchange bank owes not only apology to all the military veterans and soldiers she allegedly screwed over doing alleged fraudulent va loans. For years Lynn devine alleged ran a Rico type mortgage fraud ring between larger banks even setting up loans then allegedly selling loans to larger banks and getting paid millions of dollars allegedly with the help of Kelly Lovell former 1st American title escrow agent now at continental title. The scheme allowed them to allegedly set up tons of mortgage loans and fraudulent loan docs that included loan application s with different birthdates and addresses of borrowers fraudulent charges on hud statements including sellers taxes charged to borrowers all the while accepting tax funds from sellers then adding it to the borrowers loan and allegedly switching sales price of homes allegedly and interest rates switched in good faith estimates to conceal alleged fraud and unallowable charges such as homeowners insurance and appraisal fee and advance escrow added to loan after borrowers paid fees in cash up front. Many of the bigger banks sold loans to Ginnie Mae then allegedly lied stating loans foreclosed to collect from veteran administration and Ginnie Mae in major loan fraud scam. Allegedly some of the other employees at her bank and title company allegedly helped facilitate fraud. Many vets who Devine allegedly set up loans for were financially harmed by fraud after operatives at va loan dept allegedly allowed scam to manifest. Me. Devine allegedly had no problem with Even stealing prepaid va funding fees paid in cash then rolling them back into the loans of unsuspecting borrowes. Lynn devine also used homeowners insurance agent to set up multiple policies to go with all the phony mortgages so policies were enforce before loan approved to sell it to bigger banks. Borrowers received cancellation notice days after moving into home.after paying for insurance... evil comes in all shapes and sizes and Lynn devine fairway independent mortgage loan offer specializes in va loans. Look out folks

Is Cleaver aware that we are getting rid of Claire and then he...the director of the Democratic plantation is next? Back off Trump.....Hating Trump is not a platform. It makes you weak and ineffective to do what ever your "Massa" tells you to keep the "niggas" in line.

Anonymous said...

^^^ Hating the military and mocking POWs and gold star families isn't a platform either, but it seems to work for Trump's Republikkklans. We're not backing off. Trump's defenders and enablers don't get a pass on this one.

Speaking of a shitty hate platforms, good luck adding your insults directed at minorities with slavery terms. Many minorities serve in the military. We'll add racism as your contribution to this discussion of insulting the military. African-American troops we'll be thrilled to hear your arguments in defending this POS president. Care to insult some Hispanics to keep the conversation moving?
