Just like Kim Jung Un then ?

This charlatan had the audacity to attack John McCain as a "loser" for being a POW. At what point did his "bone spurs" become more significant than the Senator's broken arms and years in the Hanoi Hilton?

I am disgusted by this pompous braggart.

Bone spurs have never kept him off of the golf course though.

That was wrong, but McCain is a loser though.

McCain is definitely a war hero, but the man has spent too many years in the Senate, it’s clouded his judgment and even if he was insulted by the president, the man needs to put his childish and petty anger issues aside and do what’s right for the country and his party and not punish them because of his childish ego.

“He's not a war hero. I like people who weren't captured.”

Donald Trump on POWs.

"There are many people that like what I said. You know, after I said that, my poll numbers went up 7 points."

Donald Trump, when asked about his comments.

Let me edit that for ya:

"That is wrong. McCain is definitely a war hero."

The end. Move on.

I think they like me too.

Yet again. That's what's most important, isn't it.

Rare is the Trump comment that doesn't either insult others or praise himself.

Like presidents before him, Trump has wrestled with the legacy of Vietnam.

Millions of deaths, use of chemical weapons, traumatised vets and Vietnamese civillians, massacres etc.

Poor Donald and his struggle.

didn't america lose the war after extensive use of chemical weapons on women and children, and bombing the f out of Cambodia and Laos where children still get blown up from unexploded bombs to this day?

Since 1975, more than 40,000 Vietnamese are believed to have been killed and about 60,000 others maimed by what is known as unexploded ordnance — land mines, artillery shells, cluster bombs and the like that failed to detonate decades ago

Why does he call war heroes either cookies or cowards because they were captured? but laying off trump, those vets are wearing hats inside. if i did that, and my mum saw it, i would get a clip around the ear for bad manners.

There is not one soldier in any branch of the services who respects this man.

ROLF your kidding right..sure your not mistaking Trump and McCain..

Nope.

"That is wrong. McCain is definitely a war hero."

Yes, but one of the worst senators around in Congress.

The end.

Why? You deride the Dems for supposedly marching in lockstep but attack McCain, a senator with a reputation for voting based on conscience.

I wish you’d make up your mind about what you want.

How Conservatives celebrate our POWs on Veterans Day.

My distain for McCain goes back 20 years, has nothing to do with Trump. McCain only cares about McCain and that’s it.

Don't worry, my mind is always made up. Kudos!

I just don’t like McCain, But at least we celebrate unlike the left and Dems, they just trash them.

But you voted for him in 2008. I don't remember you ripping into him. Maybe you still thought Trump was a leader of a lunatic fringe at that time.

False, like everything liberals say.

There is a platform named "Veterans for Trump". Get your facts straight.

They weren't heros, they were cannon fodder, expendable pawns to poiticians.

Um, not everyone who could have served in Vietnam.
