Former John McCain speechwriter: I’m with Hillary

by Jessica Chasmar  |  published on May 4, 2016

A longtime speechwriter and top aide to Republican Sen. John McCain on Tuesday vowed support for Hillary Clinton if Donald Trump becomes the Republican presidential nominee, calling the GOP front-runner a “bats—t crazy narcissist.”

Mark Salter, who served as a senior adviser to McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign, wrote on Twitter: “[T]he GOP is going to nominate for President a guy who reads the National Enquirer and thinks it’s on the level. I’m with her.”

The tweet followed Mr. Trump’s floating of a tabloid report that Rafael Cruz, the father of Sen. Ted Cruz, was pictured with Lee Harvey Oswald shortly before the JFK assassination.

Mr. Salter wrote that while Mrs. Clinton “might” not make a good president, she at least isn’t “a conspiracy nut with mob ties.”

    Who the hell is he kidding. That speechwriter has done nothing but change the jackass he writes for. He is still working for the Democrat party just like when he was writing for McCain the Batshit crazy ass from Arizona that is a high up Democrat but played like he was a republican. McCain and the Batshit crazy ass from South Carolina -, Graham and the Boehner from Ohio, the list goes on, they are all RINO’s. The GOP and the DNC is funded by Soros and Soros can’t buy Trump.

    This is what happens to pretenders. Pretend to be conservative then go to dark side when they don’t get their way. Any idiot who votes for Hillary deserves all the bad that ever comes their way. They can’t love America, just pretend like little kids do

  • wiseone2

    Well, John McCain is a political adulterer, been in bed with Demoncrats for years, siding with their AGENDAS. So this Mark Salter- his speechwriter, thinks that Mr. Trump is “narcissist”. What about Barry, the Community Organizer?what about siding along a Jezebel who IS investigated on her ABUSE/ of emails on the private server & probably WILL be INDITED with breech of security charges, as well as others, with mountains of money laundering for the Clinton Foundation, Cattle Gate, death of Vince Foster, Bill’s torrid and abusive affairs of women (bimbo eruptions) while destroying their lives, etc. And he wants to go to HER camp? Just showing his loyalty to the establishment’s true colours!!

    Mark Salter is the bats crazy one. Trump is a commonsense conservative, and I think he will win and be a good President. The Clintons are criminals from the days of Arkansas, through Bill’s Presidency, right up til now, and Salter surely knows that. Hillary the murderer makes Trump look like a saint. McCain is an old RINO who should never have been nominated for Pres. Had Romney run against Obama the first time I think he would have won, and all would be different now. Too bad the Republicans were not thinking then.

      You’d be correct .The real republican party Of Conservative values ,morals and principles ended over 12 years ago. That is when, This fiscal Conservative with libertarian leanings ,Tea-party activist ,Article V Constitutional convention of States rights promoter. Decided It best to become and Independent voter. As the Republican party as a whole no longer supported my interest.

  • Richard Schwartz

    Who the hell cares? BYE

  • This does not surprise me, he rather the country be destroyed by the Soviet Socialist party of America(Democrat party)

  • Eleanor Cummings

    We in Arizona know McCain for the lickspittle Obama lapdog he is and unless the polls are rigged (again) he’ll be voted out of office in August. Flake will follow. I wonder if that brown on their noses will ever wash off. His former marine POW buddies can tell you it doesn’t. I think it’s called “self-interest”t.

  • VanceJ

    A traitor speaks.

  • Pam Dunn

    Given what a rino loser McCain was and the fact that McCain got his rear whipped soundly when he ran for President, maybe it’s a GOOD thing this moron is going to work for Hillary, Help HER win just like he did McCain.

  • MyRoseHasTHORNS

    Is this the same McCain jerk that turned on Sarah Palin DURING the ,08 election?

  • greg99

    Did a great job working McCain’s campaign, pal, effectively handing the election to Obama. And we should be concerned about your alleged “defection”. LOL!

  • reggie

    I’d rather vote for someone “a “bats—t crazy narcissist.” than someone who facilitated the sale of 20% of our uranium mine stocks to Russia. Someone who left the White House “broke” and promptly purchased a $1 million + home. Who wants to close down the coal mines, and put even more people out of work, in spite of the fact that newer coal technology will make it a very clean fuel.

  • ajareins

    good riddance, don’t let the door hit you on your a$$ on your way out,,so you’d rather be with a criminal and pathological liar? YOU’RE a JOKE!!!
    just trying to protect your gravy train feeding off the taxpayers money!! you can share a cell with your new GF

    • reggie

      He wasn’t.

  • Jack Burns

    This clown sounds like a dyed in the wool nut but I am not surprised. He would rather destroy the Country than lose all the perks he gets by supporting a Establishment figure like John Mc Cain whose war record is something to be admired and praised but his work as a Senator, not so much.

  • used_to_be_a_liberal

    Now we will see the true colors of people like this “speech writer” Go ahead run to the Hilda-Beast, your speeches for McCain weren’t all that great, maybe you can do the same for the Clintons.

  • Steve Gifford

    Anyone for Clinton is anti American she has been enriching herself off the back of the American people all her life. The list of her lawlessness has never stopped or even slowed down. If you vote for Hillary you are either ignorant or you want America to continue its spiral path that Obama has it on.

    • mrg01

      You are right. Hillary is a criminal. Anyone who can’t see that is incredibly stupid.

      • ajareins

        or a blind close minded commie like soros and his minions,,why isn’t that guy in jail??? probably paid off too many people,,,god would i love to see him go DOWN

        • reggie

          Putin has an International Arrest Warrant for that (fill in the blank). Soros backed obambam, killery and gave $200,000 to Kasich’s campaign. Tells you where that slime ball is coming from.

          • ajareins

            Yeah. I know where he comes from… Its where he should GO that I wish to see,, like to jail

      • Steve Gifford

        If Hillary becomes president she would destroy America so bad we may be done with. America is already in dire straits because of voter fraud and liberal lack of values. The vast majority of Americans don’t like her but the democrats will try to steal the vote.

  • Mitch Rapp

    Trump, a dyed in the wool capitalist, is a “bats—t crazy narcissist”? Truth be told, what does that make Hillary?

    • Peatro Giorgio

      Trump an Hillary born of the same mold..

      • Pam Dunn

        And you were born with your head up your rectum.

        • Peatro Giorgio

          Then what does it say about You. Who is an has supported one who is under both criminal investigation. And civil suits pending. Yes Hillary is facing simalar actions. But honestly so is Trump. Seems clear To me my head is clear of the stink. While you’res still remains eating an breathing it all in. So which Coruppt individual shall you choose. One who is sitting in a court room during the General election . Or the other who shall be sitting in another court room during the general election. Dam Your head is so far up your fat ass . It will require a caravan of D 10 bulldozers to pull it out.

        • Eleanor Cummings

          His head, too

        • crazyfreddie


    • ajareins

      a depraved psychotic liar, thief, murderer, and a muslim loving anti white, anti american dyke?

      • Eleanor Cummings

        You sure got her pegged right but you left out traitor to her country, and no one will make me believe Bill and HER daughter, Chelsea aren’t in with her on the Benghazi killings! I still wonder what they knew that she didn’t want to come out.
        Yes! Remember The Benghazi Four: Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods. And ALSO the “unexplained” deaths on the Clinton’s “watch”,
        starting before he became governor.

        A couple of PARTIAL lists:

        google “clinton kill list” and you’ll get pages of descriptives with names and circumstances. And STILL counting

    • Eleanor Cummings

      Any person going into professional politics today may go in poor, but once they “fall in line” they end up incredibly rich, at the People’s expense!! Go ahead, folks, check it out.

      • Eleanor Cummings

        His head also! Sounds like a paid troll (Killery just paid out more than $1M to inundate the internet with them.) This one sounds like a foreigner, to boot. If you need a bit of humor read them, or delete them once you realize it’s just a liberal toad. Oops, I meant troll. LOL

  • Peatro Giorgio

    Well the truth finally filters out. McCain and his speech right. We’re never ever conservative. Clearly the Rino moniker was well placed on McCain.

  • John

    Does this jerk think that I would vote for a communist liberal nut of any type to pick the supreme court justices that I will see for the rest of my life? Trump could always be impeached, but court justices we’re stuck with! Get off your crying horse and vote for freedom!

    • reggie

      The elites have freedom. It’s just us peons who don’t.

      • Eleanor Cummings

        That’s why they want to sell us on NWO. Look up Cruz, Bush, Clinton, etc for their views on NWO! JFK tried to warn us about it before he was assassinated. It had another name then but it is still globalism. Many of our professional politicians endorse it The rich would rule, and the poor would work to keep them in luxury.

        • Peatro Giorgio

          Eleanor. You my friend are a dam fool. Why might I say that with absolute certainty. Easy question to answer. For the simple reason . You an others like you have factually been promoting and promulgating. Liberal. Progressive ,anti Conservate,anti Cruz Blogs and web site lies. For it is fact. Neither Ted or Heidi Cruz ever supported A New,World Order. They both Supported US sovereignty And most definitively the US Constitution. It is quite clear when viewing Senator Cruz’s senate voting record, as well the actions he Took on Behalf of Individual and states rights issues when He served the state of Texas as Their Solicitor General. But please continue on with your ignorant ,illinformed stupidity. Now on to the general election. Where as the two nominees of the two major parties. Will watch as both nominees are sitting in court rooms facing both criminal complaints and civil suits. So now that you’ve chosen one criminal or the other how does it feel knowing. You and others have been had. MORONS, ILLINFORMED ILLEDUACATED MORONS.

          • Eleanor Cummings

            BS!! And I’m not talking about Beautiful Sunshine!! Do the research, MYRIEND! I’ve spent hours doing it, Mr Troll. Who pays you to post this drivvle?? Judging by your vernacular, rhetoric, and method of expressing yourself I’d say you are a foreigner! Buzz off!

          • Peatro Giorgio

            O so I’m a foreigner. Well if foreigner. Is one of the 3 preceding generations who have served their nation with Honor an distinction . Then I’m your Huckleberry. Yes Bull Sh## is all that which you’re ignorant ass has been spewing.. As for Trump winning G the general Election. Not in this century. Fact is of The 45% of Republicans who would not vote for Trump. More Then half of us will continue to vote against Trump. So if Shillary Wins she shall win . Because True Conservatives like my self will eirher write in Cruz’s name or stay home.. Fact of the matter is there isn’t a shred of daylights difference between Trump and Hillary. Good luck morons With your hope of winning with a socialist. Who pretends to be a populace.

        • reggie

          So true. I was brought up in a politically charged environment, and remember the dinner table discussions. My father was quite a bit older, and we were taught to think and to read more than just the headlines. He predicted a lot of what is happening now. However, in his wildest imagination, I don’t think he had a clue just how bad it would get.
