Trump mocks John McCain for being a prisoner of war: ‘I like people that weren’t captured’

While speaking in Iowa today, Donald Trump managed to find a new way to prove that he’s nothing like the “patriot” he claims to be.

While speaking in Iowa today, Donald Trump managed to find a new way to prove that he’s nothing like the “patriot” he claims to be.

During a live CSPAN broadcast, Trump was talking about John McCain when the moderator mentioned the Arizona senator’s war hero status. Trump disagreed.

“He’s not a war hero,” Trump asserted. “I like people that weren’t captured. …He’s a war hero because he was captured – I like people who weren’t captured.”

McCain was shot down during a bombing mission over Hanoi in 1967, captured, and then spent the next 5 years in a tiger cage in the jungle. Trump dodged the war after graduating college in 1968.

    I am not a Republican BUT that is stooping to a new low to question John McCain’s hero status. Especially coming from a silver spoon in the mouth Jackass

    Here’ss one thing I agree with Trump about; John McCain calls himself a war hero and passes himself off as an expert on war — while he advocates sending the prime of our youth off to fight and die. But, and that’s the operative word here, McCain spent five years sitting on his butt as a POW. You don’t make up for cowardice, Johnny boy, by sending others to fight.

    I really hope he doesn’t spend 99.9 percent of his campaign talking sh*t about others and actually spend it by talking about how he’s going to change this country.

    He does what he does and says what he says because he has no idea how to change this country. And, I fear for all hairstylists…..

    I don’t think the manager said it wasn’t a big deal. He’s not a social worker or therapist – maybe he did already call the police or he was having one of his staff members call the police while he was with the victim investigating. Maybe he offered her a cookie or a drink to be nice but to assume he offered her a cookie as some type of compensation is jumping to a big conclusion. I’ve seen victims of crimes be offered water, something to eat when being looked after by a first responder. The guy is a manager at a panera – stop jumping to conclusions that he thought this was ok.
