Trump was not a veteran. He gets no points for being a veteran. We support Trump for normal political reasons, primarily based on issues.


You seem confused here. Trump calling McCain a "rhino" is not about McCain's military service, but about his service as a Senator.
Now you are playing dumb, he said a helluva alot more about him than calling him a RINO. Save the bullshit.

Because I don't watch the View and who criticized her military service?
The question wasn’t whether you watched the View. The View is t the only example of Leftist fake outrage over things they are more guilty of themselves.

In a statement ostensibly about the late senator's daughter and her decision to leave "The View," Trump spent most of his time attacking McCain himself. Among the litany of abuse:

* Trump "made it possible for her father to have the world's longest funeral, designed and orchestrated by him, even though I was never, to put it mildly, a fan."

* Of McCain, Trump said: "In his own very special way, he was a RINO's RINO."

* Trump won Arizona in 2016 "despite [McCain] fighting against me."

* Trump noted that McCain "was close to last in his class at Annapolis."

Remember that Trump is talking about a man who spent years in a North Vietnamese prison camp where he was repeatedly tortured. The harm he suffered while in captivity stayed with him the rest of his life. (He could never lift his arm above his head again.) After his release, McCain served in the House and then was elected to the US Senate in 1986, where he served for more than three decades. He ran for president twice, winning the Republican nomination in 2008.

In short, whatever you think of McCain's politics, this was a man who spent nearly his entire life serving his country in some way, shape or form. You can like or dislike him personally -- and politically -- but there is no way to dispute that.

Which brings me back to Trump. Who, despite insisting that no one loves the military (and its commanders) more than him, has now publicly denigrated two highly-decorated military men in the last five days.

The hypocrisy there is obvious. But of course, Trump won't acknowledge it. That is simply Trump being Trump.

Now watch how many right wingers come out and defend this garbage.

Trump attacks a man when he was too much of a coward to even serve.

He claims he loves the military, but attacks military members at every twist and turn.

He has attacked 2 men who deserve nothing but honor and respect from this country.

To quote Nicholas in A Few Good Men.

I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way. Otherwise I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post.
McCain doesn't get to trade forever on his status as a POW, especially since he was largely responsible for being shot down.

Yea 3 or 4yrs ago is alot of years ago. Smfh.

Is it?
1. Yes. Considering it was about a small spat of back and forth name calling, yes, 3 or 4 years is a VERY long time, to still be talking about it. Hell, 3 or 4 DAYS was a long time to discuss it. Too long.

2. Yep. Libs NEED to gin up shit to pretend to be outraged about, because the truth doesn't work for them anymore. Hasn't for a very long time. Much longer than 3 or 4 years. More like 3 or 4 decades. Minimal.

I don't give a damn, the man SERVED. Explain how a coward who didn't serve when his country called him can attack someone's military service.

No one is attacking his military service, moron. They are attacking his douchebag behavior to his party.
