Republicans Fire Donald Trump Over War Hero Remarks (VIDEO)
Republicans slammed Donald Trump on Saturday after the presidential candidate said that Sen. John McCain, a POW in Vietnam, was “not a war hero” for “being captured.”
At the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa, Trump said (via Politico): “He’s not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”
McCain is a former U.S. Navy pilot who spent five and half years in a North Vietnamese prison where he was tortured. He spent two of those years in solitary confinement.
Trump meanwhile deferred his military service four times between 1964 and 1968.
Trump continued his attacks on McCain on Twitter, calling him a “loser” for losing to President Barack Obama in 2008.
Wait, I thought military personnel were part of the GOP base? Why is he attacking the military service of a veteran? Is Donald Trump a lunatic or what? Looks like that’s his base!
This piece of shit Donald Trump. He attacks immigrants non-stop and then proves he’s an unpatriotic turd after all. He’s a political amateur and/or professional troll.
Is Trump leading in the GOP polls? Let me check…
