McCain: Cowardly Obama 'AWOL'

Thursday night on Fox New Channels’ “Hannity” a frustrated Senator John McCain (R-AZ) reacted strongly to President Obama attending a fundraiser in New York City last night after the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, killing all 295 passengers.

“This is just what we used to call in the military AWOL,” McCain said. “This is directly loss of American lives here, and the president goes to a fundraiser? Help me out.”

Discussing the president’s responsibility in the ongoing crisis in Ukraine, the Arizona senator said “It’s just been cowardly. it’s a cowardly administration that we failed to give the Ukrainians weapons with which to defend themselves.”

“I don’t understand this president,” he said. “Crisis on the border, he did the fundraisers, the fundraisers in New York while there are major, major conflicts, not to mention the loss of American lives, is reported that there were Americans on that airplane. I do not understand it.”
