    I fail to see how the statement "He's dying anyway" is veteran-specific. Or how conservatives have a monopoly on being a******s.

    But hey, gotta get that team-sports smacktalk in there somewhere, amirite? ;)

    I'm on the Liberal side and I wouldn't think most Conservatives agree with this. Trump has hijacked some of them but not all, plenty of people on the other side that I may disagree with but still respect. McCain has earned his place in history as a war hero and one who stood firmly for what he believed in, IMO he will be remembered for that.

    The statement was in relation to his opposition to the new CIA director because of her involvement in "enhanced interrogation techniques", a topic he'd be very cognizant of because of his experiences in Vietnam.

    Your comment has everything to do with that he has brain cancer and is dying. Talk about not having respect for your elders.

    McCain has done a lot of things I disagree with and I've been very disappointed with how weak his response to Trump has been, but he's an American hero deserving of respect and admiration for his service to the country. Trump's attacks on him during the campaign and this woman's joking about his death are beyond contempt.

    How come people keep forgetting that McCain attacked Trump first?

    Is Trump just supposed to be a punching bag for his opponents?

    And here, ladies and gentlemen, is the problem we have in our society. Thank you for being the shining example, once again, of what is wrong in this thread, let alone in this country.

    A lot of people already have.

    People may not like him for what he brought to the Republican Party (Sarah Palin, Tea Party, Freedom Caucus, etc.), but no-one has ever doubted the service he has given to this country as a civilian, politician, and soldier. We may not have liked his views, but he was consistent with them, stood up for them, and earned the respect of his fellow soldiers and comrades in this nation.

    That respect is earned, and never bestowed, let alone taken for granted or comes in a false sense of having earned because of a title or who a person is. Perhaps you can learn a lot from that, as everyone else has.

    My statements stand.

    As President, he shouldn’t have paper-thin skin

    If you can’t take criticism as President, maybe it’s not the right job for you.

    I know what the statement was in relation to, because I read the article.

    But I don't think you understood, because nowhere in the article is his moronic statement related to being a veteran or being conservative.

    Since I am both a veteran and conservative, I find it sad that you have to force a square peg into a round hole and make something partisan, when the article could have stood well enough on its own for discussion of an a*****e being an a*****e.

    That statement crudely dismisses a veteran's opinion on a subject that he has intimate experience with from when he was serving. Seems pretty related to me. Not to mention that this administration (and the GOP) has a history of disrespecting veterans and veterans' families.

    It's not a veteran issue.

    It's not a conservative issue.

    It's an ass***e issue.

    Stop playing team sports, you'll be better for it.

    Yikes, I believe the left has more of an issue concerning your statement.

    Please cite where a POTUS from the left has verbally attacked anyone with the callous vernacular that Trump has done.

    Someone who feels the need to respond to criticism with cheap shots and personal insults is not someone with the emotional stability and maturity to be president.

    It’s pathetic that you people buy this nonsense. That’s not what she said there. Lip readers on a forum for people with hearing issues said that, as best they could tell, she said something like “amazing how they fold that flag.”
