McCain was a war hero after his courage and sacrifice during the Vietnam war. Then he came home, and slowly devolved into an politician.
That's what Trump's comments were about. McCain has sullied his own reputation by supporting questionable and sometimes outright stupid policies.
It goes a little deeper than that actually.
Coward and traitor are the terms now being thrown into the ring. And by Vets just to be sure:
Complete BS propagated by someone pushing their own agenda I think.
Really, we are going to bash prisoners of war now because it helps political aspirations or political support, etc? Thats really bad.
If someone has legitimate concerns with enough evidence to support it, by all means. Otherwise POWs are a subset of people that should just be left the #### alone.
