I was extremely bothered by President Trump comment about John McCain not being a hero. How could someone running for the highest office in the land say such a thing. How could people support such a person and forgive such a statement. To refresh your memory, the exact statement was:

“He’s not a war hero,” said Trump. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

ATS is no doubt a far right leaning political website and the majority of posters here are devoted trump supporters. I won't call you "trumtards" or "trumpanzees" but its safe to say that short of the president doing something extremely extremely crazy, you would still support him.

My question to you is:


1. As an American, do you believe that you're not a hero if you're captured during combat?
2. Was President Trump wrong for saying that?
3. Should such a statement not be an automatic disqualifier for the highest office in the land?
4. Should mandatory military service be a requirement for President?

John McCain is staring up at us right now.

A little hot where that treasonous scumbag now resides. Please do shed those crocodile tears for the sake of King Neocon of Warmonger Mountain.

The requirements for the presidency are listed in the Constitution.

The rest is just you crying over the insults hurled at a thankfully dead neocon.

To this day I can't believe Trump supporters not only accept that he said that, they overwhelmingly agree & support it!!

Don't get me wrong, there are NUMEROUS things McCain did & supported as a politician worth criticizing, but his service & experience as a POW absolutely are not worth crticism.

Also brings me back to when George W. and Karl Rove spread that BS rumor about John's adopted daughter being illegitimate. Man, I feel bad for McCain... constantly being thrown under the bus by his own party. Disagreed with the man on damn near everything, but he got shafted hard by the GOP

No.

John McCain was a political opportunist who was clearly part of the fake Russian collusion narrative, arming ISIS, and destabilizing the Middle East. He opened the door to the Caliphate and they came crashing through.

Trump has started no new wars and is being vilified for trying to bring our troops home after 2 decades of combat.

Nothing John McCain did while in Vietnam justifies his wanton use of young American blood for the neocon agenda.

I am still stunned that they don't have the guts to say No Mr. President, You're wrong in this case. You can still agree with him on 99.9% of other things but in this case, He was wrong!

The fact that you refuse to answer the question out of fear that others on here might think you don't support the president says a lot. You can still say he's wrong and still be a supporter.

You can put me in all the years if you want. The bottom line is, you don't have the guts to say that what the president said about our captured man and woman in the armed force was WRONG. It says a lot about you.

Don't pretend to speak for me. I am clear in what I believe.

There is no ambiguity in my words here. # John McCain.

History will remember that after decades of American Imperialism, President Donald J. Trump didn't start a single hot war against a foreign nation.

I don't need to speak for you. Your inability to answer the questions speaks for itself.

I might be wrong, but I believe history will not be kind to President Trump and rightfully so.
