Tweet of the Day: Sen. John McCain Calls Iranian President Ahmadinejad a ‘Monkey’

Tweet of the Day: Sen. John McCain sparks outrage after calling Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad a “monkey” over his desire to be the first Iranian in space. Some are accusing Sen. McCain of racism. I admit, most people despise Ahmadinejad, but resorting to a racist tweet to criticize him just isn’t right. This is the man who has serious reservations about Chuck Hagel becoming our next Defense Secretary. I’m wondering how he remained a senator for so long. Funny how Sen. John McCain has so much free time to tweet….

Sen. McCain later tweeted:

What a moron. He needs to leave comedy to truly funny people. I’m surprised he hasn’t deleted the offensive tweet. Here’s a tweet from Rep. Justin Amash slamming John McCain. By the way, Rep. Amash (R-MI) is of Palestinian and Syrian descent:
