The ship was named to honor his father's and grandfather's outstanding careers serving in WW2 and later. While it's a shame the current POS senator has the same name. Lets not belittle the great men that fought bravely to receive such an honor to have a ship named after them. Let alone the current hero's serving on her.
I have no problem if we all bash the crap out of the senator. He deserves it with his recent actions.
