    Re: Is Trump Creating an Opening for a Republican Challenger?

    It is AMAZING how far the Republican Party has fallen. My GOD!!!!! I remember when Republican honored and admired Vets and war heroes. 10 years ago if ANY Republican politician said what Trump has said about a Vets, POW's, or Gold star Families, etc., he would have been banished from the GOP and shunned by the Republican voters.. Now Trump does it almost daily and the current Republicans excuse and defend Trump. Now McCain's widow gets hate mail and death threats..

    As an ex-Republican I am just flabbergasted, I have no idea or words of what has happened to the Republican party the last 10 years.

    LOL!!

    Did you really and truly miss my point? Or did you deliberately disregard my point?

    In any case, your comment is irrelevant to my point.

    Moving on...

    You see, this is you sucking down on that Trump hating media spin.

    The fact is, Trump hasn't said anything bad about "Vets", "POW's" or "Gold Star families". He HAS, however, said things specifically about particular individuals...after they have attacked him.

    Regarding the Republicans, they don't need to do anything. The media is doing it for them. They can keep safe and quiet without putting themselves out there against Trump, thereby keeping the anger of their base at bay.

    Nah, the GOP is straight up trash. This sort of classlessness, the incessant bitchy whining, all of it, this stuff only helps him with GOP voters.

    "He's not a war hero. He's a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren't captured."

    People that are captured are called POWs. Those are the people he attacked.

    Trump was specifically talking about "He".

    That looks award-winningly absurd right there.

    So he hasn't said anything bad about them.
    But he's said bad things about them.

    Why do you post such obvious nonsense?

    Actually, he made a very general statement about disliking POWs. McCain isn't a hero because he was a POW according to Trump. You're embarrassing yourself carrying this water.

    What part of "said things specifically about particular individuals" escapes your comprehension?

    In any case, I'll leave you with this...

    I'm sorry, but this is stupid. If there is something, than say what it is. Come clean or shut the **** up.
