Letter to the editor: Where’s outrage over Trump’s McCain comments?
As a veteran I find it disgusting that the president of the United States would insult a decorated combat veteran, POW and U.S. senator. President Trump’s continuing childish comments about the late Sen. John McCain are insulting to not only the McCain family, but to all veterans. This from a man who was able to avoid the draft by using his money and “bone spurs” (which don’t seem to keep him off the golf course).
McCain served his country in times of war and peace. He put the interests of this country ahead of his own personal gain. He was a man of honor and integrity, qualities the current occupant of the White House is lacking. If any other president had made such statements about a distinguished war hero, POW and senator, the roar of outrage would be deafening. Yet current members of Congress remain mute or so subdued that their remarks are ignored. I am talking about both Democrats and Republicans.
There has never been a president as low-class as Trump. If there is any veteran who believes Trump should be president, I can only hope that no draft-dodging hypocrite ever questions their loyalty and willingness to honorably serve this country.
