I’d actually expand this to say “on the proper GOP AND globalist/neoconservative path”, because — and make no mistake about it — the John McCain sort of thinking pervades *both* parties rather deeply.

Indeed, the term that has lost any real political meaning it may have had when Trump won the presidency.

Quite right. It’s rather globally applied to …. well, everybody except Trump himself, his family, and his full-throated supporters.

McCain voted in-line with Trump 83 percent of the time, according to FiveThirtyEight. Even before Trump assumed the Oval Office, McCain’s resistance credentials were dubious.

Well, it was the ACA vote that made everyone forget every other position McCain had ever held. Dems even forgot that in 2008, they branded him a racist, mysogenist, and fascist, depending on what day it was.
