Letter to the Editor: Trump is right about McCain


“GOP leaders, candidates fire on Trump.”  This is a front page, above-the-fold headline in the Washington Post. According to The Post, Donald Trump said John McCain “(is) a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured,” and lots of people are very unhappy about what Mr. Trump said.

I love it! I am a little tired hearing about John McCain, and I have often thought that Sen. McCain did not do as much as he could to help veterans. Lots of captured Americans have been treated just as badly as he was, and our treatment of some of our prisoners has not been exactly angelic.

Somehow, Mr. Trump has encapsulated all this into one short sentence.  Keep it up Donald!
