McCain Rips Hillary Clinton: ‘What’s the F***ing Point’ of Her Book?

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) blasted Hillary Clinton for not moving on from the 2016 election, in a new interview published on Sunday by Esquire.

The veteran senator, who is battling brain cancer, did not hold back when asked about Clinton’s memoir What Happened. McCain and Clinton, once friends, share the distinction of losing two presidential campaigns.

“You’ve got to understand that you can’t rewrite history,” [McCain] told [Esquire‘s David Usborne]. “One of the almost irresistible impulses you have when you lose is to somehow justify why you lost and how you were mistreated: ‘I did the right thing! I did!’ The hardest thing to do is to just shut up.”

In the wake of Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump, and her year of questioning the legitimacy of his election, some have unfavorably compared Clinton’s response to McCain’s graceful concession speech after losing to Barack Obama in 2008.

McCain was more harsh when assessing Clinton’s decision to write a memoir almost immediately after losing last year.

“What’s the fucking point? Keep the fight up? History will judge that campaign, and it’s always a period of time before they do. You’ve got to move on. This is Hillary’s problem right now: She doesn’t have anything to do.”

After his loss in 2008, McCain went back to work in the U.S. Senate. He won re-elections to the U.S. Senate in 2010 and 2016, and is one of the most influential senators in the Republican caucus.
