    Trump blasts McCain, bemoans not getting 'thank you' for funeral""
    "President Trump on Wednesday unleashed fresh criticism of John McCain, attacking the late GOP senator from Arizona"

    "Trump spent five full minutes jabbing at McCain during an official White House event intended to highlight manufacturing in Ohio. The barbs marked the fourth time in the last five days that Trump has criticized McCain, who died from brain cancer in August."

    "I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted, which as president I had to approve. I don’t care about this, I didn't get a thank you. That's OK," Trump told workers at a tank factory in Lima, Ohio."

    "We sent him on the way, but I wasn’t a fan of John McCain."

    https://thehill.com/homenews/adminis...ou-for-funeral

    This guy is beautiful, he not only insults the parents of dead soldiers, but even dead war heroes eight months after they have died, and continuously, now supposedly because he didn't get a thank you for attending the funeral. Got to love the "I gave him," where the hell does that come from, guess just another Trump fabrication

    Flat out shameful, and the Trumpkins will not tell us Trump is "just defending himself," defending himself from a guy who died nearly a year ago, figure that one out. Truth be known Trump feels threatened by just the mere image of McCain because he represented everything Trump isn't nor can ever become

    And next week Trump will proclaim he loves the military especially Vets and the lemmings will believe him

    We should pull up some of the horrible things the lefties were saying about McCain when he was running against Obama.

    The sexual references to him and Palin were especially delightful.

    This is why we call you deplorables. The only thing Hillary got wrong was the percentage. It's not half. Pretty much all self-identified Republicans at this point are deplorable. I've never see anything like what's going on.

    I'm sorry you think a president is a god but newsflash, Obama isn't there anymore so no, presidents are just people.

    The President of the U.S. is the most powerful person in the world. Have you ever seen a President act like this in your lifetime, Republican or Democrat? Of course you haven't. This is unreal.

    That the Tea Party would protest deficits and stay silent about a President who's obviously mentally unbalanced says everything. Can you imagine the reaction if Obama was doing this?

    Our president should be a reflection of the people. Sadly, he is.

    He is a reflection of his "base." Not the other 60%

    :roflol:

    "But...The Dems..." :bored:

    Do you have anything to offer ON-TOPIC?

    Or is Off-Topic BS all that you have for "rebuttal"?

    Anyway, actually ON Topic:

    i can't believe that Trump isn't letting this thing die.

    He keeps stirring the pot like an 11-Year-Old Drama Queen Trolling Instagram.

    And, some people actually voted for this Childish Immature Troll?:smfh:

    I just read that when Plump was dissing McCain in Ohio, he was met with dead silence...…..seems not all righties are nasty ghouls


    (As to Trump caring about the military, he wants to cut funding for schools and housing at military bases..)

    It’s terrifying honestly. No other word comes close to describing what is happening.

    That was the original purpose of the Electoral College: smart people picking a President who ISN'T a reflection of the people. Maybe we should bring that back.

    You should go make a thread about it instead of attempting to derail this thread with vague and pathetic whataboutisms.

    Why would trump fixate so hard on McCain? It just makes no sense. The man is there to deliver a message about the economy and jobs, the only aspect of his presidency that has maaaaybe gone right.

    And he wants to use it to bash a dead war hero.

    Reagan, maybe Kennedy. Trump is in that league for sure and is by far the best we had in a long time. He turned around a nation headed down the toilet, thanks to Obama. He may be too late to save it at this point.

    Ah, none of those supposed "lefties" we're President, Presidents usually don't stoop to the level of personally attacking dead war heroes in public

    You can not show us one example where Obama personally attacked a dead war hero numerous times in public

    No he is not, Trump tries to make it such, but he reflects his base, if all of America resembled Trump's base we'd be in big trouble

    Nonsense. The nation had turned around under Obama so strongly after Bush's family that Trump has not been able to change that.

    Very weakly. Worst recovery in the post war era. It's not even debatable at this point. Obama killed the recovery because he was a bumbling buffoon with no actual knowledge of business or economies.

    It's why college professors should stay out of office and the rel world. They are mostly clueless and all about "theory ".

    Reagan banged porn stars, lied about it, was implicated in the payoff by his lawyer who THEN turned state's evidence against him? Reagan had feuds with dead decorated POW's and the husbands of his advisers?

    I lived through the Reagan era. Strangely, I don't remember any of that.
