What do you expect from a man who dodged the draft five times with fake medical reports and fake academic reports? Cadet Bonespurs is the most evil selfish ignorant person ever to hold this office. It is a pity at my age I will not live to see how he and his administration are viewed by future generations and historians.

Trump is so predictable in demonstrating how he is such an immature, morally bankrupt, and despicable human being. While I did not agree with McCain on many issues, he had more morality, courage and leadership in the tiniest tip of his thumb than Trump has in his entire racoon-eyed, weak, bloated body. Karma will be a bit%h.

I am reading the book American Patriot. By Robert Coram. It tells the story of Colonel Bud Day and John McCain in the Hanoi Hilton. I would suggest everyone needs to read this book including President Trump. These men deserve our respect and not the disrespect of anyone.

"Appears" does not mean that our President mocked him. President Trump talks with his hands and uses gestures often. Many professionals in media insist he mocked a reporter with hand gestures of arms flailing when the man's arms were essentially paralyzed and no one that I am aware of in the media has apologized for that big fat lie. I am not surprised about this weird allegation. I want to state one historical fact you might want to print though. Senator McCain did not just " appear" to mock Trump supporters. His own words in his own book attest to how he felt and what he thought. McCain's hatred is documented. Senator McCain said anyone who disagreed with what he did could " go to hell". His actions and those words are considered cowardly by many of us and the fact that he interfered in the election of his newly elected commander and Chief will be a part of his infamy. He will be known as the Senator who delivered the P dossier and wasted thousands of dollars of tax payers money on a warlock hunt. What a legacy that is! I think that media has a snowball's chance in hell to convince any of us that Senator was a hero for our country any more than we are convinced that Benedict Arnold was one.
