McCain: Trump Should Apologize to Heroes


trumpIn Sen. John McCain’s first public response to Donald Trump saying he is “not a real war hero… because he was captured,” the former prisoner of war said Trump “owes an apology to the families of those who have sacrificed in conflict and those who have undergone a prison experience in serving their country.”

McCain continued: “The great honor of my life was to serve in the company of heroes, I’m not a hero,” but his commanding and the 55,000 names on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial were. “Those are the people he owes an apology to.” Trump said he was angry that McCain called his supporters “crazies.” McCain, smiling: “I thought it was a term of endearment.” Read more at Morning Joe.

  1. if McCain is a hero because he was captured and TORTURED, does that mean that ALL HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS ARE HEROES because they were TORTURED for SIX YEARS????

  2. McCain is correct. But other Republicans have defamed our heroes. Trump’s attack on McCain is reminiscent of the “Swiftboater” attacks on John Kerry. And who can forget the attacks by the despicable Joe Walsh on Tammy Duckworth, a disabled Iraq veteran? (Walsh also failed to pay his employees, failed to pay his taxes, failed to pay his kids’ child support — and tried to get out of paying child support after Duckworth defeated him by claiming unemployment!)

  3. This whole thing is so silly. McCain is not running for President. Why should Trump dump on McCain? Trump’s big mouth will ultimately do him in. He will start to fade very soon. He is not a real Republican anyway. He is as much Republican as Bloomberg was.
