Poor old John McCain. Ever since Hair Drumpf has taken over the airways and the ashes of what's left of his Republican party, it seems the Sunday talk show hosts have taken his number off of their speed dials.

Not to worry though. He's back on the air this morning along with his BFF, Lindsey Graham and #NeverTrump-er Mitt Romney.on CBS' Face the Nation. They did actually allow a few Democrats to get some air time this weekend as well, but par for the course, they're outnumbered by Republicans along with the Beltway both-siderists in the media who still want to pretend that Republicans have one iota of interest in governing as long as the Kenyan usurper is still occupying the White House.

Here's the lineup for this Sunday via the Orlando Sentinel, and I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday weekend.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., talk to CBS' "Face the Nation" form Kabul, Afghanistan, at 10:30 a.m. on WKMG-Channel 6. The program also features Mitt Romney and Rep.
