OK, what was wrong with Trump’s comment? Maybe I’m missing something here. Did Trump step in it?
McCain has been running on his POW record for decades and there’s no evidence that he was any hero. A hero is someone that risks or lays down their life to save another despite tremendous odds with total disregard to one’s own safety. That is the definition of hero. The title of hero is bestowed on almost anyone these days and it’s ridiculous.
McCain is someone to be revered for his sacrifice at the hands of the North Vietnamese while in captivity. That is an indisputable fact. He was tortured by his captives and is unable to raise his hands above shoulder height to this day. His claim to fame is that he was shot down over North Vietnam and survived captivity. Many others that were captives were in fact heros that did not survive the ordeal.
Once again McCain has ran his mouth where it doesn’t belong. He has been nothing but a tool for the left yet he feels himself qualified to speak on behalf of all republicans. Yeah, right. McCain has been part of the problem in Washington. His record speaks volumes. Where has McCain been the champion of conservative principles? Crickets. He’s a hack. He might as well be a democrat. He talks conservative at election time then tacks left the minute after. We’re sick of it.
