Has The Donald gone too far this time...? Hating innocent Mexicans is one thing but now attacking a former POW of the Viet Nam war is quite another.
Trump denounced Sen. John McCain, a former Navy pilot who spent five and a half years in the Hanoi Hilton. With two of those years in solitary confinement.....and from time to time was tortured just for the fun of it. It's amazing the Senator not only survived but prospered after his military experiences.
Trump's actual words were, 'He's not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured.
After those remarks His Bloviator denied saying that McCain isn't a war hero. He added, 'If somebody's a prisoner, I consider them a war hero.'
So what are we to believe, the first pronouncement or the denial. No matter which you believe he said is truthful- either way he's then a classic liar. His tongue is a walking talking contradiction. The problem with Trump is that his mouth speaks faster than his brain can comprehend. Personally- I don't think either are connected with the other.
This Trump is in desperate need of a tele-promter ... due to the fact that he isn't capable of speaking his mind- mainly because he doesn't have one.
What set Trump off on his latest example of talking out of both sides of his mouth? Last week Senator McCain accused Trump of 'firing up the crazies' referring to the growing extreme element in the GOP. I guess the truth hurts. These 'crazies' have propelled Trump to the number one position in the national polls.
What Trump lacks in common sense he makes up for it in hutzpah....big time. While McCain was ejecting from a burning jet over North Viet Nam, Trump was collecting his four academic and medical deferments from military service. Just this fact of dodging the Viet Nam war you'd think Trump would let this sleeping dog lie.
That was the HUTZ....now comes the PAH.
He called McCain a 'loser' because he lost in his bid for the White House in 2008. Trump, a businessman who has been forced into four, count 'em four corporate bankruptcies calls McCain a loser.
I guess Trump believes in the old adage, I don't care what you say about me as long as you keep saying it.
