This weekend, the mainstream media, Democrats and yes, Republican establishment including 2016 Candidates slammed Donald Trump for saying Senator John McCain, AZ, was not a hero for his military service and being captured as a POW. They missed one small fact however….the truth.
Mostly all the main news and TV headlines eluded to Trump attacking Senator John McCain, seemingly for no reason. They wanted the public to believe “The Donald’s” campaign had “imploded” and that there would be no need to appear at the Republican debates in a couple of weeks.
The controversy began when McCain slammed Trumps appearance in Phoenix, Arizona, where only 500 people were expected but 15,000 showed up. McCain said, “Oh, boy, Trump makes my life difficult. He had 15,000 crazies show up.”
Crazies. McCain insulted 15,000 people who showed up and everyone else who likes the fact that Trump isn’t scared to tell the truth in the face of resistance and adversity.
Trump speaking at a question-and-answer session at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa, commented on McCain, with whom he’s recently feuded over illegal immigration.
“And I supported him, I supported him for president. I raised a million dollars for him, that’s a lot of money. I supported him. He lost, he let us down, but, you know, he lost. So, I’ve never liked him as much after that, because I don’t like losers. But he hit me… [at this point Frank protested ‘He’s a war hero’]
“He’s a war hero; he’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured, okay? I hate to tell you. He’s a war hero because he was captured, okay?”
Check out the video of the interview:
Many Trump haters jumped on social media and took half the story and ran with it. But the video clearly shows both sides of the story and gives you a better perspective that Trump didn’t just develop this out of the blue.
