Dump Trump For Dissing POWs
Donald Trump made this statement last Saturday regarding Senator John McCain: "He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured."
Trump's latest verbal diarrhea is a slap in the face to the thousands of American servicemen who suffered as prisoners of war. First of all they put themselves in harm's way.Then these brave men withstood starvation and torture in captivity. Many died. Does Trump believe these men should have fought to the death in a banzai charge or kamikaze attack instead of being captured so they meet his narrow definition of what a hero is?
Trump is old enough to have served in the Vietnam War. He never volunteered and took steps to avoid the draft. He is the last person to criticize the war record of those who did serve.
On a nearly daily basis Trump displays that he does not have the judgment to be president. Speaking plainly is one thing, speaking plain stupid is something else.
Time to dump Trump.
