Trump is a disgustingly petulant, petty human being



I've never agreed with most of John McCain's politics, but I do recognize the sacrifices he made and the suffering he endured in service to America.

Trump played tennis while Senator McCain was a POW during the Vietnam conflict. Trump got out of serving his country because of bone spurs; Senator McCain was tortured. For five years.

Cadet Bone Spurs signed an act named for Senator John McCain without mentioning McCain's name once. Without acknowledging Senator McCain's valor and sacrifice. Only a person without human decency could behave in such a dishonorable way. But we have seen, time and time again, that Donald Trump has no honor or human decency. He showed that again today.




Trump Signs Act Named After John McCain Without Mentioning McCain Once 

"The president couldn’t say one nice thing about the senator before signing the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act."

"Trump went to Fort Drum in New York to sign the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act but did not mention the senator at all in his speech. The president has frequently insulted McCain, a Vietnam veteran and prisoner of war, even as the senator battles an aggressive form of brain cancer."

tRump is the ONE "man" that pissing on his grave would probably provide great relief and satisfaction. Probably not politically correct but, oh well.

WASHINGTON — Congress wanted to honor the ailing Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. President Donald Trump did not.

In extended remarks during a visit to Fort Drum in upstate New York to sign the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 — this year's version of an annual bill that sets defense policy — Trump chose not to mention the former prisoner of war and Senate Armed Services Committee chairman who is battling brain cancer. He even omitted McCain's name when citing the title of the bill.
