Skip to comments.John McCain Launches Attack On Trump As He Savages Wealthy Young Men Who Avoided The Vietnam Draft '
Posted on 10/23/2017 6:02:02 AM PDT by Enlightened1
Senator John McCain delivered a thinly veiled attack of President Trump's lack of military service on Sunday evening.
McCain, who has been criticized about his war hero status by Trump, seemed to retaliate while speaking about the Vietnam War in an interview aired on C-Span Sunday night.
The 81-year-old from Arizona spoke about how wealthy Americans were able to avoid being drafted into service during the battle - in which he spent five years as a prisoner of war - by having a doctor say they had a bone spur.
If that sounds familiar to anyone, that's because it is the excuse that President Trump used in one of his five deferments during Vietnam. The other four were because he was still a college student.
'One aspect of the conflict, by the way, that I will never ever countenance is that we drafted the lowest-income level of America, and the highest-income level found a doctor that would say they had a bone spur,' McCain said in the interview.
'That is wrong. That is wrong. If we are going to ask every American to serve, every American should serve.'

Anyway, McCain is mad at President Trump for defending himself against the fake attacks from serial liar and low IQ Frederica Wilson that always votes against the Veterans (see her record) and thinks she is Roy Rogers.
So once again McCain takes another swing at President Trump like he did during the Primaries. Did McCain ever say this to President Bill Clinton?
Perhaps President Trump should make public the Hanoi Hilton Records on old Songbird? Word is they have over two dozen or 30 audio tapes of McCain doing a "Tokyo Rose" style propaganda radio for the enemy against the U.S.
Here is one such tape the Vietnam released for the public that said it was fake. The tapes are located at the Hanio Hilton museum.
Here is the hyper link,
Poor John, using the last of his short time left before he dies acting a fool.
Oh well, Songbirds gotta sing.
Man, did Trump ever get under his skin during the primaries.
So, everyone who didn’t get drafted is a coward?
That will go over very well with the liberals you love so much, John.
Songbird seems to be a bit troubled lately.
And what about young men who have little ability getting commissioned in the Navy because their fathers and grandfathers were admirals? Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!
I was drafted into the Vietnam fiasco and I feel like anyone who could have avoided that political war is OK in my book . Were the lives of 58,900 service members worth the 10 years we spent there only to surrender . When it was over I worried so much for the good folks in the South and the Cambodians who suffered immensely for supporting the USA .
Songbirds gotta sing. Guess if a person was a songbird, they would be pretty angry later in life, knowing their life had been a total lie and a fraud, having sold out real honorable men.
No one understands the Draft now and everyone back then avoided it as much as possible. This is not an issue and this is not 1986
What is Senator brain damage drooling about now?
Yeah, Songbird Juan laments the fact that none of 'em had two Admirals to protect 'em.
McCain venting his inner ‘rat.
What is it about POTUS loser gigolos?
Dittos to your post. My beef is not with those who protested the war but those who trashed America, embraced leftism and spit on our Vietnam Vets.
We have an ex-POW in this county who spent time in the Hanoi Hilton with McCain but he was USAF. He’d been supportive of McCain in the past but I don’t know if he is anymore. I would like to think that he isn’t.
