Trump Attacks McCain's Military Record

So Donald Trump is mouthing off now at people who aren't even running against him! He decided to attack ex-GOP nominee John McCain who last ran for the presidency in 2008 and lost to Barack Obama, saying that McCain wasn't a war hero because he was captured. 

This kooky statement might hurt Trump to an extent, considering the outpouring of support for Chattanooga after the murder of five military men. The other GOP candidates now have to decide whether to let it go or stand up for McCain, who is unpopular with the Tea Party and considered an establishment RINO (Republican in Name Only). But of course Jeb and the gang are a bunch of hypocrites no matter what they say because they loved it when John Kerry was attacked by the Swiftboaters back in the day.

Oh how sad, the GOP is in a sticky situation. Make more popcorn!

From Politico
“He’s not a war hero,” said Trump. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”
The remarks, which came after days of back-and-forth between McCain and Trump, were met with scattered boos.
McCain, a former Navy pilot, spent roughly five-and-half years in a notorious North Vietnamese prison known as the “Hanoi Hilton,” where he was repeatedly tortured. He spent two of those years in solitary confinement.
. . . He also continued his attacks on the Arizona senator, saying, “I think John McCain’s done very little for the veterans. I’m very disappointed in John McCain.”

John McCain had this reply:
“It’s very bad,” the Republican senator said. “This performance with our friend out in Phoenix is very hurtful to me,” McCain said. “Because what he did was he fired up the crazies.”

Doubling down, Trump refused to apologize for his remarks.

Tripling down, Trump then called McCain a Dummy - you can't make this stuff up!
