Conservatives are savaging Donald Trump on Twitter in defense of John McCain

I hate to say this, but it may be the beginning of the end for Donald Trump – although I wouldn’t bet on it.

Considering that his grotesque comments about Mexican immigrants actually raised his stock among a certain category of Republicans, it’s hard to say where his latest comments about John McCain will lead his campaign. Logic says he shouldn’t be able to survive it — veterans are a sacrosanct (at least rhetorically) talking point in the conservative lexicon.

Trump, who got tons of draft deferments during the Vietnam War, said this about the Arizona Senator this Saturday:

“He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured.”

GOP presidential rivals and politicians (except Ted Cruz, so far), conservative writers and pundits, all pretty much lashed out on social media at Trump for crossing a line that no one thought would be crossed.
