John McCain Grills Media For Twisting Trumpís Words About PTSD
The Daily Caller ^ | 10/5/2016 | Christian Datoc

Posted on 10/05/2016 12:08:24 PM PDT by orchestra

None other than Arizona Sen. John McCain defended Donald Trump’s recent comments about post traumatic stress disorder.

Trump was criticized for stating that unfortunately, veterans suffering from PTSD who end up committing suicide aren’t as “strong” as some of their comrades.

“When you talk about the mental health problems, when people come back from war and combat and they see maybe what people in this room have seen many times over — and you’re strong and you can handle it — but a lot of people can’t handle it and they see horror stories,” Trump told veterans at a campaign event on Monday.

McCain told the Arizona Daily Star on Tuesday that this interpretation is just evidence of “bias in the media.”

That’s nice, Juan. We can always count on you ... when you’re running for re-election.

Thank you, Senator McCain.

Okay, Beelzebub, you can go shopping for that parka now.

One of these damned-if-you-did, damned-if-you-didn’t moments for Donald.

This doesn’t imply squat about suicides, only about sufferers. A moral premise that Donald doesn’t even touch on here is needed to address the suicides question, but if a President Trump did not try to amp up the moral assistance to troubled vets then this would not be the Trump we have come to know.

Looks like McCain is fishing for a job because word on the streets is that he’s going to be out of one soon

Too bad we can’t count on him at any other time. Even when he was running for President.

Whup, it’s a reelection year for Juan McCain!

He’s 80 years old, and he knows the country can’t live without him!

And anyhow. Those hooting at Donald about this are just being silly. If Donald sympathized with vets who had a leg blown off, would that be grounds of accusing him of implying that they only had weak legs?

Interesting, because it looks like he's decided Trump might be the next President.

If that wasn't likely, he'd be totally in Hillary's corner. Except that it's an election year, so he's got to act like a Republican for a few more weeks.

Once again the Truth is slammed by the Left - some folks are emotionally tougher than others and while not always, those who have a strong relationship with God are among them.

And even THOSE can run into trouble too. This is where the church is not only silly, but wicked, to turn its nose up rather than “Bear one another’s burdens.”

With, at best, a lame duck Democrat administration. Oh joy!

Even RINOs can see when the leftist forces (Dems and their media sycophants) are acting like manipulative demagogues. They’re taking it to the point of being sickening.

These old guard rino's might be scared to death of what is being released or about to be released and need to make some new friends to hedge their bets. Yesterday started to look fun with the Gucifer 2.0 release though I have not heard anything on it today.

They didn’t just twist his words, they took them way out of context and flat-out LIED about them.
