I would never compare Trump to John. John was a hero who served his country, and paid a price. Trump is (in my view) a grifter who should never be compared to any of our service members, be it the lowest private to the highest general. There is no comparison. People who serve serve. People who grift, grift.


I have no respect for Trump. Looks like we have a difference of belief here. That is fine with me. You want me to have faith in Trump, and I think he is scummy, and not in keeping with the principles that make our country great. However, we both served, and I assume now you are a good person because of that. So, maybe I will listen to your perspective a little closer, and try and find a way that we can discuss things without automatically thinking you are one of "them".

See, at one time maybe you hauled me out of some crap, or maybe I did the same for you. Nice to share crap brother.



Donald Trump is the president of the country and commander in chief of the armed forces, higher than the highest general. So much for grifter.

This sums it all up perfectly.
The only people coming out of this looking like douches are the media, who are desperately trying to exploit McCain's death to attack Trump, with CNN leading the way (just a few short years after they trashed McCain when he ran against Obama by the way).



Major props to Sununu for not feeding the propaganda machine.

The condescending virtue signaling dripping from Alisyn Camerota made me want to puke. How can people watch that crap?

Dumb ass tRump aka spanky, aka republican draft dodger in chief, does not deserve to live on the same planet as a hero like John McCain.

but why are you trying to compare him to Trump? they are nothing alike. And the fact that everyone seems surprised that Trump acted petty, I'm sorry, but that's just ignorant. (use Michael Jackson voice there) It's who Trump is, you people have been saying it for two years now.

I'll try to come up with an idea for a discussion. I like the backdrop of a mutual respect. I'll U2U an idea tomorrow afternoon.

We don't hate Trump. That takes too much of my energy. We just think he's a douchebag and a rotten human being. And he sucks as President. Kinda like you guys feel about Obama. Just my opinion. Obviously yours differs.



It is too much trouble to invest in hate. But I can spend a little time dismissing Trump as a horrible person. His followers will have to admit this at some point. That point will come when the rest of the country decides that he is a horrible man. We are at over 50% right now. Tick tock.


The only "horrible persons" I have seen lately are all Trump haters. Trump has done nothing but respond to that hate which has always been first blood against him. Trump haters are always drawing first blood and then Trump responds, and then Trump haters do it again.
So, it isn't Trump.

I find it funny when those on the left complain about Trump not serving. Were you as upset that Clinton dodged the draft? or that Obama never served? Also the left are some of the most anti-military lot I have ever seen but now McCain is a hero because he served in the military? Pick a lane people. I am pretty much military neutral .I don't think they are heroes nor do I think are baby killers. I think they are guys and girls that voluntarily signed up to do a job and view them no different than anyone else that goes out and does their job everyday. But, still find it funny how the schumer's et al want to sing the praises of the military service now.

Maybe...

No, then you will make a thread about how Trump hurts local businesses by banning foreign imports.

Like clockwork...

He could do nothing to make this not a thing.


But he wanted to make it a thing. Trump getting even with McCain even after his death! LOL

Trump nixed White House statement praising McCain
thehill.com...


But uninviting Trump from his funeral was the high road. You make me smile.


And you would want that draft dodging coward, anti-women, pedo at your final cerimony in life?

Why would anyone want Bill Clinton at their funeral?

The rest of the article is the usual leftist-twist but if you're that interested in reading there's a link at the bottom.


"Despite our differences on policy and politics, I respect Senator John McCain’s service to our country and, in his honor, have signed a proclamation to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff until the day of his interment," Trump said in a statement.

"I have asked Vice President Mike Pence to offer an address at the ceremony honoring Senator McCain at the United States Capitol this Friday," Trump added.

The president said Chief of Staff John Kelly, Defense Secretary James Mattis and national security adviser John Bolton will represent his administration at McCain's funeral services.


The left can rest now while they look for another story of hookers who Trump banged years ago or maybe someone who hates Trump will die next week and they can find a way to make him look bad for that?

The Hill


The guy served. He manned up. If you don't like his politics, then OK. But the guy is a hero.


Honest question. Do you think he had a choice not to serve being what his name is and being who his dad and grandfather were?
In my opinion, and that is all it is make no mistake, I cannot picture anyone telling their four star admiral of a father that the military ain’t for them. Especially in the time period he grew up in

That is why i said maybe.


I would call it the john mccain act and get it done quick.

No one would see that one coming.

The left would have to leave it alone and the right would be for it.
