Trump now denigrating POW's. What an embarrassment.

Jul 18, 2015, 4:03 PM

Hard to see how someone like this is getting so much support. I really hope the Republican party speaks up against him before he damages it even more. The worst part isn't even his dig at McCain (and all POW's) that: "He's a hero because he was captured. I prefer people who weren't captured." The worst part is that he is a hypocritical draft-dodger:

"Asked about his own military draft status, Mr. Trump, 69, said that he received medical deferments from the Vietnam War because of a bone spur in his foot. Mr. Trump could not recall which foot was afflicted."

That term along with the term ignorant is used way to often. I would never vote for him but how is what he said not right? How is it ok for sanctuary cities. How is it ok for those cities to ignore those federal laws but clerk of courts can't ignore a Supreme Court decision which is actually not a law in the first place. I'm just trying to understand how it's racist to not want people sneaking over the boarded this way, some cities to say the heck with the laws, the president tell them not to deport them when they are arrested? I still have not heard a logical reason from someone that all of this should be ok. So basically you are calling me a racist too, believing all of this. I call that slander since being called a racist now is akin to committing a crime. Maybe false accusations of racism should be a crime now as well.

I never have liked McCain's political positions. I'm a die hard limited govt, libertarian. And I appreciated Trump's telling it like it is on immigration. However, he hit the 3rd rail with me on this one. McCain is absolutely a war hero. To say otherwise is un -American!

Any soldier who serves our country in harms way is a hero to me. Trump appears to have avoided serving via favoritism. That plus his asinine statement disqualifies him immediately from consideration for President.

The bad part is the Republican Party will probably denounce him and he will then run as an Independent. This means he will split the conservatives and another extreme liberal will again be put in the White House to finish destroying what is left of the USA.

The part that I see wrong with what the republican party is doing is not changing .
They seem bull-headed and stagnant on issues that aren't really up for debate anymore , at least in the mind of the majority of Americans.
I think the Repubs need to go younger , reflect more with the demographics that they have been at odds with for so long , and try to look less stiff and stodgy , overall .
The GOP is losing ground with each and every passing year , so change would do them good .
Just my opinion .

I don't agree with him on every detail, but love the fact that he actually has the guts to speak his mind. The Republican Party has lost its way, as evidenced by politicians like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, etc. If the Republicans want to lose another election, they will trot out yet another weak candidate like a Bush.

We could do much, much worse than Trump.

You may be correct Doug, Dubya may not be able to spell Dubya, at least not correctly. I'm guessing you're an Obama supporter? I don't/didn't really care for either one of them, as they are pretty well one in the same, in their policies, save a few social issues. Both for big government etc.

But Dubya was definitely entertaining, Obama not so much.

Make no mistake though, they both have narcissistic/type A personalities. As I previously stated, very rarely does someone rise to the top of any profession without some of these qualities.

I do however agree with you on the state of the Republican party.

Trump isn't just a jerk, he's a complete narcissist...which is something more dangerous.

People who are listening to the words coming out of his mouth are...kinda missing the manner in which he's delivering them.

Trump obviously watches a lot of television, and follows a lot of Twitter. Not surprising considering his biggest aspiration a few years back seemed to be a TV star, so others could witness his personal greatness. Having failed at that and gotten kicked off their air, he seems to have set his sights on...hey, the presidency? Talk about doubling down. But it's not hard to think The Donald would have a pretty good idea of how to appeal to a lot of people on push-button issues. The problem is, is he sincere, or is he just playing to the crowd with the same sort of smug self-entitled cynicism he seems to apply to every other aspect of his life?

Fortunately, America tends to vote the man, and he's unlikeable enough on a gut level he won't get near the Oval Office. Which is good. Trump getting elected would scare the @#$% outta me.
