I assume most of you remember this picture. It was the moment McCain listened to a supporter attack Obama for being a Muslim. In a moment all too rare these days, John gently corrected her and said "no ma'am" that Obama was a good man who he just had disagreements with. Can anyone imagine Trump missing a chance to attack or insult an opponent just because the attack was untrue? What is equally disgusting is how many cowards support this kind of corrupt sewer Trump mentality.
As we send prayers to John McCain in his fight with cancer, it is good to remember that even though many of us disagreed with his positions, we should all applaud and honor his service in both the military and our government. If we had more patriots and less opportunistic self serving people in congress, we would not be experiencing the destruction of our democracy.
It is also worth remembering that John McCain spent seven years as a POW being tortured. When he had the chance to be returned because of his families connections, he refused to accept because he believed it was wrong for him to return home while his fellow prisoners remained. He didn't believe you accept special treatment just because you had power and connections. Now consider Trump. He believes that anyone would take advantage of connections to gain power and special treatment. He recently said that anyone would have met with Russian operatives trying to undermine our elections" I guess in the fevered swamp he dwells in that may be true. Consider that Trump after using his families power to get bogus deferments from military service, said John McCain was not a hero because he got captured! The draft dodging coward then arrogantly proclaimed he "liked people who weren't captured".
It remains to be seen if there is enough left of our checks and balances to stop Trump when he fires Mueller and tightens his fascist grip on our government. It will take enough patriots in the house to stand for our country and put party aside and put country first. I fear for our country.
