You don't need to be military to be repulsed by what Trump said in this case, but boy do I agree with and salute you...

Thing is though, Trump has found with his base that he has a pass for any damn thing he wishes to say or do, including maybe shooting one on 5th Avenue. One of them will also take this one comment about McCain and point out it's just one comment from the past and hardly "absolutely terrifying."

More like just one cancer cell of far too many already! Nothing to worry about. Right...

I looked this one up. It is an unsubstantiated rumor that Trump repeated. No base in fact.

So then I looked up about her "holding her chest out about Al-Queda" and it turns out that is a lie too.

Trump is on a roll, and his ignorant base is eating it up. She never EVER said anything to support Al qaeda, in fact she denounces them.

As for the Anti-semetic stuff. I guess anyone who has anything negative to say about Israel is an anti-semite. Does that confirm that Trump is an anti-American, since he constantly talks about what a crap-hole we are?


Can you all at least apply the same standard to white and non-white people? If you did, maybe people would stop associating you as racists....

Whether or not you think what Trump said was racist (it is racist , it just is. No matter how many mental gymnastics or selective interpretations you have to perform to try and convince yourself and others, it is very clearly a racist trope), I think there something even more ominous implied by his comments. He is basically saying if donít agree with his polices and opinions, you donít belong in America. Similar to Sarah Palinís comment years back, if you donít believe what he believes and slavishly support him, you are not a ďrealĒ American. Only Trump supporters are considered REAL Americans.

This is not what the founding fathers wished for in America. Itís far more anti-American in terms of our nationís ideals and democratic values than anything those 4 women have said.

Marriage had nothing to do with it.

Someone claimed on social media she wed her brother who was living in the UK, so that he could get a green card. Thus far, there is no proof she did so.

Anyone can post anything online. People tend to believe anything when it appears to validate their perceptions.

Because they are smart enough to know that Trump was attacking McCain because McCain attacked him first. They understand that it's political and not because he/Trump has anything against the military....

I can agree with the chant or disagree with it but I will defend the right of those to do it !!!

It is a right !!!
I don't agree with Antifa or the KKK but they are free to say what ever they want that is consistent with their constitution rights !!!

The double standard is in play again !!! Trump is repeatedly ask to disavow something and the clown "squad" get a pass and when ask some still won't disavow their hateful comments !!!

Prove your claim with reliable sources.
Of course it's okay for you to accept that President Trump slept with prostitutes, and sexually molested women without any proof. It's okay to accept the accusations against Justice Kavanaugh without any proof. Right?

Thanks for the reality check. The Trump/America haters (Progressives) will spin anything Trump says or does as racist, sexist, homophobic, etc. They also paint ALL Trump supporters as such then use cute little schoolgirl names to underscore their maturity level.

Yes, most people would consider that racism.
