McCain v Trump

Filed under: John McCain, Trump, USA — derryvickers @ 7:38 pm

Scathing but Correct – The Scotsman Editorial Saturday 1st June 2019

‘During this time, Trump avoided conscription several times because he was a student and once because of a “bone spur” in his foot. However, in 2015, Trump had the temerity to say McCain was “not a war hero” because he was captured, saying “I like people who weren’t captured”. …In contrast, at a 2008 presidential election rally, McCain defended Barack Obama after one of his own supporters claimed the Democrat was untrustworthy and an “Arab”. “No ma’am … he’s a decent person and a person that you do not have to be scared of as President,” McCain said as the crowd voiced their surprise.’

‘In a parallel universe, The Scotsman would have been pleased to welcome President John McCain and it is his ethos, not Trump’s, that our politicians should embrace’
