Letter: President’s disrespect for John McCain disgusting

Editor:

I am so disgusted with Pres. Trump. This man just couldn’t put aside his petty disagreements with Senator McCain and step out to honor him. He tweeted.

I did not agree with John McCain on a lot of things but still I know what a patriot he was. He served 31 years as a Senator and before that he was a Viet Nam prisoner for 5 yrs.

The very least our president could do is speak something kind about him, but no, he just tweeted. Shame on him. I hope the President someday realizes what a fool he is.

Since he cares so much about himself, he can vote for himself. I won’t and I hope anyone else that cares about our freedoms won’t either.

Rest in Peace John McCain, you deserve it.

I hope Mr. Trump gets what he deserves, too.

Given the steady stream of infantile behavior, what else could we expect from Cadet Bone-Spurs?

You mean like the respect McCain showed for his running mate, Sarah Palin. I found the entire atmosphere surrounding McCain's funeral more disgusting than anything the President said.
Those of us capable of thinking for ourselves recognized LBJ's sick demented Vietnam war ego trip for what it truly was, "INSANITY'. George Ball knew it was doomed from the git, so did I, and apparently so did Donald J. Trump.

For you to say John McCain's funeral was more disgusting than anything trump said speaks volumes about your character.

In your last sentence you seem to defend trump's much deserved designation as a pathetic draft dodger. I guess you think it's acceptable to fake injury in order to get out of fulfilling your duties as an American citizen.

Sarah Palin was a joke as a Governor and even more of a joke as a prospective Vice President of this great United States.

The difference between John McCain and trump is very simple. John McCain was a man who learned form his mistakes (picking Sarah Palin as a running mate was one of them)and trump isn't even capable of admitting he made a mistake in the first place.

With all due respect, Trump's criticism of McCain is founded in the multiple criticisms of McCain by his fellow Vietnam vets who called him: SONGBIRD. They made a video expressing their honest feelings of McCain, who finished 5th from the bottom of his class of over 800 at Annapolis. POWS HATE JOHN MCCAIN.

POW's do not hate John McCain, they give him the respect he deserves!

Do not speak for the POW's unless you are one of them!

Are you a POW ProfessorPlum?

I didn't think so, because if you were, you would understand the level of sacrifice this man gave for his country.

I would like to know what kind of songs you would write while under extreme torture?

Sounds like we have another trump defender who put's a draft dodging liar, above a decorated war hero who fought valiantly for his country.
