John McCain: We’re letting Vladimir Putin get away with murder

SHARE John McCain: We’re letting Vladimir Putin get away with murder

Sen. John McCain (R-Az.) is no fan of Vladimir Putin, and he’s also not a fan of how President Barack Obama is dealing with the Russian president after the Malaysian airliner was shot down last week.

In an appearance on CNN, McCain blasted Obama, saying the U.S. isn’t doing enough to deal with the situation.

“The point here is that Vladimir Putin is literally getting away with murder — and I mean literally — and we are doing little in response,” McCain said.

And he’d like the finger to be pointed firmly in one direction.

“The president of the United States should be out there on national television pointing the finger where it belongs and telling the American people who’s responsible,” McCain said. “Then I think you would get a positive response from the American people.”

McCain, who has sanctions placed against him by Russia, also touched on the effect those sanctions have had on him.

“It wrecked my life, Wolf,” McCain said to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “I was unable to have spring break in Siberia. It’s been a terribly traumatic experience for me.”

Don’t worry though. McCain said he’ll “get over it.”h/t: Bloomberg, The Hill
