John McCain and Donald Trump go together like cats and dogs. Not well at all.
The Arizona senator and U.S. president don’t like each other, and never really have.
Now, McCain appears to take a cheap shot at Trump. He accuses him of dodging the Vietnam War in the late 1960’s. Of course, McCain was famously shot down and held captive for a number of years.
Daily Caller has the scoop:
McCain: “One aspect of the conflict, by the way, that I will never, ever countenance is that we drafted the lowest income level of America and the highest level would get a doctor to say they had a bone spur.”
McCain added: “That is wrong. That is wrong. If we are going to ask every American to serve, every American should serve.
The thing is, Politifact has PROOF that McCain is lying:
Trump received his fourth and final college deferment on 16 January 1968. After graduating from Wharton, he was reclassified 1-A on 9 July 1968. Trump underwent an Armed Forces physical examination (with a result listed only as “DISQ”) on 19 September 1968 and was reclassified 1-Y (qualified for service only in time of war or national emergency) on 15 October 1968.
According to a statement from the Trump campaign, the 1-Y classification stemmed from Trump’s having bone spurs in both heels:
“While attending the University of Pennsylvania’s prestigious Wharton School of Finance, Mr. Trump received a minor medical deferment for bone spurs on both heels of his feet. The medical deferment was expected to be short-term and he was therefore entered in the military draft lottery, where he received an extremely high number, 356 out of 365.”
What a liar. All McCain is doing is helping the left.
Let’s get 5,000 SHARES to let Sen. McCain know we’re done with his lying and BS! We support President Trump!
