During Trump’s Duluth, Minnesota rally, he tried to pull out his favorite crowd-pleaser. For some reason, 45’s hard-line followers love it when the president attacks a national hero, John McCain.
The Arizona senator spent five and one-half years in a concentration camp after North Vietnamese soldiers shot down his fighter jet. He did that fighting for these very people who cheered Trump’s irrational words.
McCain has traditionally stood up for what he believed was right – unlike the cowards now populating the Republican Party. He joined Democrats and voted against Trump’s attempt to kill off ObamaCare and take away affordable healthcare from over 20 million people. The man sitting in the Oval Office never forgets a slight.
POTUS feed his Duluth crowd red meat. The Washington Press reported:
‘We had a gentlemen way into the morning hours, go thumbs down. He went thumbs down.’
One woman in the teeming crowd of Trump supporters stood up against the former leader of the free world and wanna-be authoritarian president. She shouted:
‘He’s a war hero! He’s a war hero!’
Maybe, the commander-in-chief just ignored her, although that was hard to imagine. Maybe he did not hear her.
However, Meghan McCain did hear what Trump said about her father. As such, she responded to The New York Times’ White House correspondent Maggie Haberman’s tweet that read:
‘Trump is telling the crowd about Sen. John McCain and re-enacting his thumbs down vote on Obamacare — though not mentioning his name. “Not nice!” Trump says. “That was not nice!’
The war hero’s daughter joined that single woman in the Trump audience with her powerful voice:
‘And it never stops being gross.’
