Donald Trump has the right to say whatever he wants.
And you have the right to take him for what he is: A presidential candidate who has no chance of becoming president.
“I am really rich” said Trump as he declared his candidacy in New York City back in June.
Donald Trump is an entrepreneur, an entertainer, and a world-class self-promoter, but he's not a politician.
Because the job of a politician is to get elected, and Donald Trump won't be.
Don't be fooled by the early polls: Trump may already have all the support he's going to get.
How does his campaign grow?
Certainly not with his comments about Senator John McCain.
McCain spent 23 years in the navy; Trump never served.
After McCain's plane was shot down in 1967 over North Vietnam, he spent five years as a prisoner of war.
One of his arms was fractured, as were both legs.
And Trump? According to the Washington Post, "As Trump was
preparing to take Manhattan, McCain was trying to relearn how to walk."
John McCain has character; Trump is a character actor, by definition, "representing a personality type, especially by emphasizing distinctive traits, as language, mannerisms, physical makeup."
One of the most famous questions in American political history came in 1953, when conservative Senator Joe McCarthy was looking for americans who were communists.
Like Trump, McCarthy was a bully, who was only stopped when he was asked, at a hearing by a Joe Welch of Boston representing a Boston attorney of being a communist "have you no sense of decency?"
Donald Trump has no sense of decency.
And if he cannot honor our prisoners of war—including John McCain–then trump has no honor, either.
