Letter to the editor: McCain military hero, political nothing
As a proud veteran of the Korean War and former Republican for many years, I find remarks by letter-writer Joe Palumbo (“Where’s outrage over Trump’s McCain comments?”) typical of Democrats who still can’t accept that Trump won. Can you imagine what our country would be like had John McCain or Hillary Clinton had won?
McCain deserves all honors and respect for his war experiences. But not in politics. I guess for revenge, he was the deciding “no” vote on everything President Trump offered. I can’t think of anything outstanding he accomplished as a politician. He was such a terrible candidate for president that I ashamedly voted Democrat, which I never admitted to family for fear of being expelled!
Trump has rough edges and an ego never before seen. I am opposed to his remarks about dead people. But he has the guts to do what needs to be done, and has accomplished more than the last three presidents combined. It’s a new and crude approach to politics, but it’s time to abandon the usual phony words from previous administrations.
And, while Democrats attempt to destroy the entire Trump family and try to ignore the immigration problem, Trump keeps going ahead with programs he promised.
The reason no outrage is heard can be credited to the old adage, “If you can’t say something good about McCain, then don’t say anything.” Get over it — the Donald is going to win again in 2020.
