‘We are mourning and I am livid’: Canadian CEO publicly blasts Trump’s escalation in Iran

The downing of Ukraine International Airlines’ Flight 752 by an Iranian missile during the escalation of hostilities between the United States and Iran is profoundly tragic. It is a very simple-to-understand warning against the concept of the “good war.” Whether on purpose or by accident, clearly innocent people are dead because world leaders have decided the best way to communicate with one another is through violence. Canada is feeling the brunt of this event, as 57 Canadian citizens were reported to have died as a result of the missile that hit flight 752.

Maple Leaf Foods CEO Michael McCain took over his company’s Twitter account on Sunday evening to voice some of the anger and pain he felt over the “collateral damage” Trump and his chicken hawk allies have unleashed in their efforts to wag the dog by destabilizing the region. McCain wrote that a colleague of his lost his wife and 11-year-old son in the crash. McCain went on to explain that this event was the result of an “ill-conceived plan to divert focus from political woes.”

And if it is unclear which leaders he is talking about, McCain goes on to explain that “A narcissist in Washington tears world accomplishments apart; destabilizes region. US now unwelcomed everywhere in the area including Iraq; tensions escalated to feverish pitch.” And to answer the very cynical conservative talking point about how bad a guy Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani was, McCain pointed out that Soleimani wan’t unique on the world stage, “There are a hundred like him, standing next in line.”

McCain finished by signing his name to his final Tweet, saying that “We are mourning and I am livid.”

Totally agree. He’s a danger globally directly & now cearly indirectly. Nothing is ‘off the table’ when it comes to distracting the narrative of his own demise.

Yes the great dealmaker can’t handle that a black man is a totally better president than he ever will be.
