August has been the quite a month for 10-4-10, and it is a good thing for politicians we are at the last Monday for it.
Side note: Though, we are pretty sure that there will be a resurrection of some kind when it comes to the eyeshadow palette.
While McCain did get a Twitter sendoff from President Trump, back on the Iowan campaign trail in 2015, Trump had made it clear he wasn’t a fan.
“He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero, because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured.”
As great as that snippet is, and for as often as it is peddled by the mainstream media, the full exchange is so much better.
During his interview with Frank Luntz, then candidate Donald Trump did his best to explain his feelings toward the Ultimate Rhino of the Republican Party.
Here We Go
Trump: (He) insulted me and he insulted everybody in that room and I said somebody should run against John McCain, who has been, in my opinion, not so hot and I supported him for president. I raised $1 million for him. That’s a lot of money. I supported him, he lost, he let us down, but he lost and I never liked him much after that ’cause I don’t like losers, but, but— Frank, Frank, let me get to it.
Luntz: He’s a war hero. He’s a war hero…
Trump: He’s not a war hero…
Luntz: He’s war hero.
Trump: He is a war hero…
Luntz: Five and half years in a Vietnamese prison camp…
Trump: He’s a war hero, because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured. So he’s a war hero…
Luntz: Do you agree with that?
Trump: He’s a war hero, because he was captured, okay? I believe, perhaps, he’s a war hero, but right now he said some very bad things about a lot of people. So what I said is John McCain, I disagree with him that these people aren’t crazy.
Ah, the days of 2015. They don’t come back, or do they?
