President of the United States Donald J. Trump has a lot of fights going on at the moment. But his biggest enemy appears to be a dead person. That’s right: The most powerful man in the world is once again tussling with the late John McCain.
This past Sunday Trump had a Twitter meltdown that had him Godzilla stomping on everything from Fox News to an SNL rerun. He squeezed in a couple kicks to the corpse of a POW whom he once criticized for being a prisoner of war during the Vietnam War, which he avoided after his father (allegedly) arranged for a doctor to say he had bad feet.
Some of the president’s supporters (amongst them certain Breitbart staffers) applauded him for berating a soldier who died half a year ago. Other GOP-ers, such as the star of Commando and Jingle All the Way, decided to speak out. Ditto the family members of a man whose kids actually seemed to love him for things beyond his unimaginable wealth.
Does Trump apologize? No, of course not. And so Wednesday, the president was speaking to the nice crowd of a Lima, Ohio tank factory, as he does, and he decided the workers there would like nothing more than to hear him air his grievances against a dead man.
“I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted, which as president I had to approve,” Trump said, in his fourth swipe at the late McCain in less than a week. He then added, “I don’t care about this, I didn’t get a thank you. That’s OK,” before adding again, “We sent him on the way, but I wasn’t a fan of John McCain.”
