Liz Peek: Mr. Trump, make a magnanimous gesture and award McCain the Medal of Honor
Fox News ^ | Liz Peek

President Trump should award John McCain, who died on Saturday, the Medal of Honor. The posthumous award would recognize the senator’s extraordinary heroism during his five years of captivity in North Vietnam, when he was tortured mercilessly, leaving him disabled for life. The compassionate and respectful gesture might also help to heal some deep wounds in the Republican Party. McCain was a Navy fighter pilot when his plane was shot down on a mission over the North Vietnamese capital of Hanoi in 1967. He fractured both arms and one leg when he was ejected from his jet and nearly drowned when he parachuted into a lake. North Vietnamese pulled the badly injured McCain from the lake and attacked him. One bayonetted him and crushed his shoulder with a rifle butt.

For Pete’s sake, just plant the stiff with a couple of dead fish and plant a tree over it.

Let me guess. McCain got an ass full of rice somewhere along his confinement in Viet Nam.

Don’t think so Liz.
But I’m up for naming a bathroom stall in the Senate Building.

Shouldn’t Palin and Trump do this together? I mean, given that McPain slighted both of them more than anybody else?

...and THE MOMENT Trump does that, he gets blamed for trying to use McCain for his political gain.

Stuff it where the Sun doesn’t shine. He was no Medal of Honor winner, he didn’t save any one but his own a$$. His fellow POW’s from the Hanoi Hilton called him Songbird McCain, most Vietnam Vets look on him the same as the do the traitor Hanoi Jane.

Does this woman have a clue what the Medal of Honor is? How does she dare even make a suggestion like that?

What wounds Liz? I guess you didn’t get the memo that ninety percent of Republican voters support the president. The only people with deep wounds in the GOP are the RINO, Deep State establishment types whom the grassroots have told to go pound sand!

Obama or Bush could have done it.
I guess McCain didn’t have a problem with that since they are they are the funeral headliners.
