Shame on Trump For His Comment on John McCain's War Service
Navy combat pilot and POW Received deferments
Today, Donald Trump has put an end to his presidential hopes with his disgraceful comments on John McCain's war service. When someone referred to McCain as a war hero, Trump took issue saying first that McCain is not a war hero then saying that he was a hero because he was captured. (McCain spent several years as a POW in North Vietnam.)
I doubt if many of Trump's supporters are McCain fans, nor am I a fan of McCain as a senator, but where the Hell was Trump when it comes to military service? He was getting deferments. Think what you will of McCain as senator, but his military experience must be respected. To have it questioned by someone who never served and got several deferments is a disgrace.
This guy is a blowhard. He has no business being president. Yes, he tapped into a resentment on the part of many Americans when it comes to illegal immigration, but he got it backwards implying that most of the Mexicans coming here were criminals while some of them were decent.
I think his comments today will prove to fatally damage his political hopes.
