Whether you love Donald Trump or hate him, you’ve got to admit that he stirs the pot up with a big spoon and he doesn’t back down.
Mat Lauer worked overtime to push Trump on his comments about McCain. Matt found out that The Donald isn’t one of the politically correct Republican squishes he’s used to bullying. And thank you to Tom Petty for our title.
The real money quote here is this.
“Sharyl Attkisson did a major expose yesterday,” Trump continued. “She said that Trump is being mistreated. Four times, he said, ‘McCain is a war hero.’ I have no problem with that. I do have a problem with what he’s doing on the border. He’s terrible, and I do have a problem with the illegal immigration being a disaster. He’s doing a horrible job for the vets… Frankly, illegal immigrants get treated better than many of our vets. It’s a disgrace .”
And that is the absolute truth. We live in Arizona and we are ashamed to have sent – repeatedly – John McCain to the US Senate. There is nothing Trump could possibly say about McCain that we wouldn’t consider mild criticism.
