Trump’s Response to Crash of USS John McCain Left Reporters, Navy Baffled

At 5:24PM ET Sunday afternoon, the USS John S. McCain, a U.S. Navy guided-missile destroyer, collided with a Liberian merchant vessel off the coast of Singapore.

According to a statement by the U.S. Navy, ten sailors on board are still missing, and search and rescue efforts are underway. Five sailors were injured in the collision, four of whom were medically evacuated to a Singapore hospital.


While the ship suffered damage to its port side, it was able to sail back to port at Changi Naval Base in Singapore on its own.

When asked about the collision on Sunday, President Trump initially had an oddly muted response, saying only:

“That’s too bad.”

He was more upset over Nordstroms dropping his daughter's product.

He's mad at John McCain for voting no on the crappy healthcare bill. So of course anything named after John McCain, is on his shit list too. I'm sure that makes sense in his Trumpian. head

One of his press conferences, I think that nutty one after Charlottesville, someone asked him about McCain and he kept saying "John McCain, the guy who voted against the healthcare bill?" He's got SUCH a grudge now.

Yes, I heard that embarrassing tirade. He said it like three times, John McCain? Which John McCain? The one that didn't vote for you to have good health care?

Yes! It was ridiculous and petty. So par for the course, I guess.

I thought one requirement of a president was that they had to be an adult. This one obviously missed that memo.

Why ask the man who doesn't care, about his opinion?

You ever think that he just didn't hear the question when there are several reporters screaming at the same time?
