PHOENIX — Sen. John McCain doesn’t have to speak Donald Trump’s name to excoriate him.

(Criticize is too tame a word.)
He doesn’t exactly call the president a draft dodger. But … in a way… he does.
On C-SPAN3, American History TV, McCain is interviewed about the Vietnam War. The money shot, the prime quote, comes after McCain discusses the mistakes made in getting into the war and the lack of a strategy for victory. Then he gets to the draft.
And Trump.
Full coverage: Vietnam War still haunts us

The president, as you may know, received several draft deferments during the war, most having to do with college. After he graduated in 1968, however, Trump would have been drafted, but got a medical deferment for what was diagnosed as bone spurs in his heels.

On C-SPAN McCain says, “One aspect of the (Vietnam) conflict by the way that I will never ever countenance is that we drafted the lowest income level of America and the highest income level found a doctor that would say that they had a bone spur. That is wrong. That is wrong. If we are going to ask every American to serve, every American should serve.”

John is finally breaking away from the rigid RW GOP. I wish he had done this years ago, but I guess staring death in the face has finally given him the courage to do it. 

Better late than never John.

John is no longer relevant. He needs to focus on himself

He claims to be pro veteran but shoots down anything that would help vets among other things. He needs to not be a republican as he has shown he is a liberal via his actions. I hope his brain tumor or whatever it is puts him permanently out of commission

You're a rather cruel and very unpleasant person.   Karma will get you for statements like this.

My grandmother died of brain cancer. It isn't pleasant. Don't be such a douchebag.
