McCain: Trump hasnít apologized for POW crack
NY POST ^ | September 24, 2017 | Mark Moore

Posted on 09/25/2017 5:59:26 AM PDT by COUNTrecount

Arizona Sen. John McCain insists​ ​​his vote against a GOP plan ​to repeal​ ObamaCare ​is not payback for ​Donald Trump ​demeaning​ the former POW’s heroism during the Vietnam War​​ when the president remarked, “I like ​people who weren’t captured.”

“If I took offense at everybody who has said something about me, or disparaged me or something like that — life is too short. You’ve got to move on,” McCain, a Navy pilot who spent more than five years in a North Vietnamese prison, told CBS’s “60 Minutes”​ in an interviewed that aired Sunday.​

“And on an issue of this importance to the nation, for me to worry about a personal relationship, then I’m not doing my job,” the senator added. see also McCain deals potential death blow to GOP health bill McCain deals potential death blow to GOP health bill

McCain, the Republican presidential nominee in 2008, said the president has never apologized to him for making the caustic comments​ in July 2015​, a gesture that would help repair the ongoing feud between the two.

But McCain said they are ​”​different people,​”​ with a “different upbringing” and “different life experiences.”

“He is in the business of making money and he has been successful both in television as well as Miss America and others,” ​McCain ​said in the interview that aired on Sunday. “I was raised in a military family. I was raised in the concept and belief that duty, honor, country is the​ ​— is the lodestar for the behavior that we have to exhibit every single day.”

“I don’t know what he’s going to do tomorrow​ … ​or say​ ​tomorrow​,” he said​ of Trump​. “He changes his statements almost on a daily basis. So for me to spend my time trying to analyze what he says, I don’t know.”

Thanks to McDork, the term “senator” is analagous to “pond scum”.

His grave will be covered by gallons of urine provided by we who look forward to showing him our “respect”.

Did McCain ever say he was sorry for the accident on the USS Forrestal?

So if he had, you would have voted as your constituents wanted? I am so glad Trump insulted you, so that people can see how small your character really is.

Maybe because he still prefers heros who didnt get themselves shot down and didn’t earn a nickname like “Songbird” for collaboration with the enemy

The first time I saw the movie Shooter, the character played by Ned Beatty screamed McCain to me and it has been reinforced every time I see it again, even more so now.

Sure, he personally visited the families of CDR Fred White and his deck crew that died beside McCains plane to comfort them about the bravery and last moments of their loved ones...
Oh
Wait
Nevermind

McCain is an advocate for good relations with Vietnam but never received an apology for the torture the Communists inflicted on him as a POW. Perhaps Trump would enjoy good relations with McCain if he had tortured him instead of insulting him.

Have you apologized for your lies about repealing Obamacare, Johnnie?

Didn’t think so.

No offense to the Senator, but he’s been tagged as John Mc$hitstain on some internet blogs. Kinda catchy.

I was listening to Breitbart Sunday night last night when a caller, responding to comments about McLame said, “Bad pilot does not equal good hero.”

If McCain did not have an Admiral for a father he would be in prison still for treason as to what he did to the Forestall and what he did in Hanoi.

“And on an issue of this importance to the nation, for me to worry about a personal relationship, then I’m not doing my job,”

Correct. You let a personal relationship effect your vote of importance to the nation. You are not doing your job.

Glad you see so clearly.

MR. McCAIN
Nor have WE seen or heard YOUR apology to AMERICA. Please TRY to remember back to the election cycle the FIRST and only time you ran against BO’B.

YOU assured, in your ‘fatherly’ tone of ‘wisdom’, a frightened , sane and stable, matured woman that there was nothing to fear from a President O’Bama. YOU LIED YOU LIED YOU LIED.
To hear YOUR APOLOGY we would first need to wait till HELL FREEZES OVER.
Drop dead!

He drank and goofed your way to the 2nd lowest grades of ANY cadet at the Naval Academy, assclown. If his father/grandpa were not Admirals he would have been EXPELLED. 134 souls on the USS Forrestal wish he had been.
