Newsline: Calls to get Turkish ambassador ‘the hell out’ the US

Sen. John McCain said the US should toss the Turkish ambassador “the hell out” after a demonstration outside the envoy’s home in Washington turned violent and several protesters were beaten bloody. “We should throw their ambassador the hell out of the United States of America,” the Arizona Republican told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Thursday. “This is the United States of America. This isn’t Turkey. This isn’t a third-world country. And this kind of thing cannot go unresponded to diplomatically.” The clash between the peaceful protesters and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s armed security guards took place after he appeared at the White House for his fist face-to-face meeting with President Trump. He said there should be repercussions against Turkey for allowing such a violent put-down of a peaceful demonstration and called for the attackers to be identified and criminally charged. The Turkish Embassy, in a statement on Wednesday, described the protest as “unpermitted” and “provocative.” Police in Washington broke up the melee, arrested two men and are pursuing charges against several others they are trying to identify with the help of the State Department and the Secret Service.
