Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) berated Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy on October 18 for asking about the senator's relationship with President Trump.
"People have to be careful because at some point I fight back".
Later, when buttonholed by CNN, and asked if his previous night's speech had been about Trump or Steve Bannon, McCain shot back, "I think what is clear is that I was talking about an environment here of non-productivity, of a reversion to the attitude of the 30's, which was one of the major reasons why we fought World War II".

Appearing on WMAL in Washington, D.C., the president was asked what he thought of McCain's attack on the "half-baked, spurious nationalism" that's "cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems".
