Donald Trump On John McCain: ‘I Like People Who Weren’t Captured’

“So basically, folks, stupid shit stupid shit, more stupid shit. Stupid shit stupid shit stupid shit. Stupid shit?”

Going into the weekend, Donald Trump was surging in the polls because Republicans love racism. They can’t get enough of it. But then Saturday morning at the Family Leadership Summit someone had the nerve – the nerve – to call John McCain, who’s not even running, a war hero, and that’s when the citizens of Whoville say the Orange Bullfrog grew three sizes full of shit that day:

“[John McCain] is a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

Yup, those words happened. Granted, Donald Trump was only continuing the proud Republican tradition of shitting on war heroes, but that’s only allowed when the target’s a Democrat. So naturally the GOP is outraged at Trump who not only doubled down on his comments yesterday, but refused to apologize to Senator McCain. However, in a profile of bravery and coverage, Donald Trump changed his position this morning to, “Shut up, I never said that!” Via Mediaite:

Lauer said that the network had played the entirety of Trump’s comments. He asked Trump specifically about his line that he “prefers people who aren’t captured.” Trump reiterated his bizarre theory that he meant nobody pays any attention to soldiers who didn’t end up POWs.
On Morning Joe this morning, McCain declined the possibility of an apology from Trump, but said the candidate did owe it to other POWs.

Say what you will about John McCain – For example, he nearly killed us all by almost putting Sarah Palin one moose hoof away from the nuclear codes. – but at the end of the day, the man spent five years as a prison of war in Hanoi (two of those in solitary confinement) and turned down early release because it meant leaving his men behind which resulted in him being tortured. On the flip side of that coin, Donald Trump went through four student deferments before pulling some shit out of his ass about a bone spur so he could borrow a bunch of money from his dad and start running businesses into the ground which culminated in him (so far successfully) running for president while saying things like, “I like people who don’t get captured,” because fuck this whole country. Just fuck it to hell. In the meantime, I have no life and spent way too much time on Saturday firing these off, so here they are shamelessly embedded for your viewing pleasure because I like people who quote their own tweets.
