We’re going to take just a quick moment to note the latest offensive nonsense to emanate from GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s mouth:
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said he does not owe John McCain an apology for saying the Arizona senator is only a war hero “because he was captured.”
Trump told Martha Raddatz on ABC’s “This Week” that he won’t be pulling out of the presidential race over his comments, which he made Saturday during a campaign event in Iowa. Trump said he left to a “standing ovation” after speaking at the Family Leadership Council summit.
“When I left the room, it was a total standing ovation,” said Trump. “It was wonderful to see. Nobody was insulted.”
At this point, rational Republicans are turning on Trump in droves, even as he captivates the more excitable segments of the GOP primary electorate with his ability to offend, you know, just about everybody–something a fair number of angry white male ardent Republican voters wish they had the skyscraper-size pile of money Trump has to do the same with.
But seriously, attacking Sen. John McCain for being shot down over Vietnam, and held as a prisoner of war under conditions that Trump can’t even possibly imagine in all of his 24-addled psychotic torture-loving fantasies…it’s just too damn much, folks. It is totally unacceptable no matter how many billions and billions of dollars you have.
Since “The Donald’s” campaign is apparently a billion-dollar wrecking ball that can’t be stopped by anyone, we feel there’s an obligation for everyone of conscience to say so.
