NERVY: Donald Trump Questions Whether Sen. John McCain is a War Hero

GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump attacked Sen. John McCain on Saturday, questioning whether he was a “war hero.” Um, to McCain’s credit, he served his country. Donald Trump got five deferments. Besides, who is he to call out John McCain on anything, particularly with his service in the military?

Trump said, “[John McCain] not a war hero.” He added, “I like people that weren’t captured. He’s a war hero because he was captured.” McCain was shot down over Vietnam and was a POW for five years. Trump, on the other hand, avoided serving in Vietnam.

Um, he’s going to implode at some point with these reckless comments. First it was “the blacks” in his birther rant against Barack Obama, then it was the “rapist” and “criminal” Mexicans and now it’s attacking John McCain who served his country.

    I have given up on taking Trump seriously and have instead decided to expend my Trump related analysis energy by coming up with alternate universe explanations for the incoherent bile that comes from his mouth hole. In today’s theory Trump is actually really super smart and is attempting to bypass the GOP making fools of themselves with a 20 man primary by making himself so cartoonishly despicable that the rest of the GOP field bands together to stop Trump, gets themselves a little more on the same page in the process, and presents a more coherent primary match up down the road.

    Whew, that was a tough one. I wonder what Trump will make me have to come up with tomorrow.

    Actually Trump’s comment kinda impressed me. I’ve never tried to shove my foot in my mouth while my head was up my ass, but it sounds REALLY tough.

      I think this one goes beyond foot-in-mouth. It may be that Trump’s attempting to get himself out of the race while he’s ahead, a kind of suicide-by-cop.

    Off the deep end Trump, don’t mess with a POW or for that matter anyone in the military, past or present.

    Trump has been scoring points being outrageous. I think he just found out where the line is.

    • Rcoutme

      There’s a line?

    Nervy is the wrong term, stupid is a much more accurate term.

    that is what I was thinking… all of those medal of honor winners that got themselves killed by saving their fellow soldiers… a real hero doesnt die, just like in the movies… right?
