“Outrageous!” shouted Republican candidates who had no problem with Trump calling Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals. “Terrible!” said GOP operates who never questioned Trump’s insistence that Obama wasn’t born in America.
They all agreed: “Why, we can’t have one of our candidates saying politicians who are great war heroes don’t deserve our respect!”
Well, unless it’s multiple purple-heart winner John Kerry. We can call him a coward and anti-American and get people to say he didn’t earn those awards and never really was injured even though the evidence clearly shows otherwise.
Oh, and Representative Tammy Duckworth, who lost both her legs in Iraq. We can insult her all we want and say she’s not a ‘true hero.’
And let’s not forget Max Cleland, the former Senator who lost three limbs in Vietnam, who Republicans declared was no war hero either.
Those examples are completely different from McCain’s situation. Completely different!
All those people are Democrats!
