Trump, McCain and the GOP Base–A Not-Exactly-Love Story

Why won't President Trump sing the praises of Sen. John McCain? Because he knows something the media don't:

His base.

On the other hand, Sen. McCain was beloved in New Hampshire as their unofficial third U.S. Senator. Granite State GOP players join the podcast to tell their stories-including how (not so conservative) Sen. McCain got the endorsement of the extremely conservative New Hampshire Union-Leader over Gov. Mitt Romney in 2008.
