John McCain was furious after being asked a question by Peter Doocy, the correspondent to Fox News, who is no doubt well studied on the seemingly endless personal feud between President Donald Trump and the Arizona Senator. John McCain had a furious response, according to the Washington Post.
In light of their recent feud, Doocy asked McCain, “Has your relationship with the president frayed to the point that you are not going to support anything that he comes to you and asks for?”
This question obviously rubbed Senator McCain the wrong way, who responded angrily.
“Why would you say something that stupid? Why would you ask something that dumb? Huh? My job as a United States senator is a senator from Arizona, which I was just reelected to," McCain retorted. "You mean that I am somehow going to behave in a way that I’m going to block everything because of some personal disagreement? That’s a dumb question.”
He then walked away from the reporter, clearly showing an expression of anger on his face.
McCain's explosion comes in the aftermath of an ongoing feud between President Trump and the Arizona Senator.
On Monday, when speaking at the 2017 Liberty Medal Ceremony, John McCain gave a speech where he targeted the foreign policy of President Donald Trump.
“To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ‘the last best hope of Earth,” declared McCain.
“For the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems,” he continued, referring to President Trump and his ideological supporters.
“We live in a land made of ideals, not blood and soil. We are the custodians of those ideals at home, and their champion abroad,” he proclaimed. “We have done great good in the world. That leadership has had its costs, but we have become incomparably powerful and wealthy as we did,” he added.
He concluded, “We have a moral obligation to continue in our just cause, and we would bring more than shame on ourselves if we don’t. We will not thrive in a world where our leadership and ideals are absent. We wouldn’t deserve to.”

John McCain has also opposed virtually all of President Trump's efforts to repeal Obamacare.
The last notable setback to the Republican Obamacare repeal effort came in July of this year. In the dark morning hours of July 28, Senator John McCain, still recovering from surgery, made his way into the Senate Chamber. He raised up his hand and put his thumb downward, signaling that he was a "no" vote on a skinny repeal of Obamacare.
He then took another bold step against Obamacare repeal. In September, Senator McCain announced that he will vote against another GOP effort to repeal Obamacare. This announcement doomed the legislation since the vote was expected to be very close.
