Yesterday, Sen. John McCain announced his intent to vote against the confirmation of Gina Haspel to lead the CIA:

Given McCain’s own history, it’s no surprise that he’s concerned about the use of torture. You may or may not agree with his argument, but he’s more than earned the right to make it.

Apparently Ret. Gen. Thomas McInerney disagrees. In an interview with Fox Business’ Charles Payne, the Fox News analyst went after McCain with a hit so far below the belt, he may have very well grazed hell:

Unreal. Regardless of how you feel about McCain’s Senate career, a swipe like that is absolutely beyond the pale.

Shame on Gen. McInerney. And shame on Charles Payne for not immediately calling him out.

Just gross.

And we would’ve cheered him on.
