    There is nothing heroic about being captured. If someone can present a case proving otherwise, then great; but no one has because no such case exists. As far as marginalizing Trump, feel free to explain how I'm able to do that posting here? :cuckoo: I am posting based upon what Trump said. His own words.

    Who cares if Trump is overly generous with the label "Hero", in your opinion?

    Do you even care about that?

    And if so why?

    That's your assumption he's overly generous calling every POW a war hero for getting captured. I don't share your opinion.

    Yes, your "opinion: is that somehow this means "And since he loathes troops who get captured, "

    which is utter nonsense.

    As I said above, this supposed disagreement you have managed to gin up, is nothing, not a reason, nor even a rationalization for your spin.

    It is nothing but a semantic prop for you to hang your smearing and slandering of Trump on.

    Are you this afraid of attacking Trump on issues and policy that you have to resort to this level of dishonesty?

    YOur opinion of his chances are far higher than mine then.

    It isn't the capture it's what goes on after the capture, and perhaps that's where the heroism is found. Some capture is probably easy and some might be difficult. If being captured was a bed of roses more would probably be captured, it might even beat draft deferments.
    The question would be what enemy gives it's POW's the best treatment and have the best recreational programs. In fact, some of things our enemies have done to American prisoners are pretty gruesome, beheadings, bayonet practice, guinea-pig medical operations and so forth.
    Were I to be captured I would prefer surrendering to Americans. America has a four star rating in the POW brochures.

    His words..... while dissing a war hero, saying he likes those who don't get captured, implying he doesn't like those who do.

    Exactly. There is nothing heroic about getting captured. Which is why Trump was full of shit when he said McCain is a war hero for getting captured.

    He obviously said something he didn't mean as a comeback to McCain, realized it, and immediately walked it back.

    That you are trying to make something of this is pathetic.

    As I said above, this supposed disagreement you have managed to gin up, is nothing, not a reason, nor even a rationalization for your spin.

    Do you think Trump is smart enough to know when he's being insulted?
