Montel Williams calls out Trump on his disrespectful comments about Senator John McCain.
Trump is in yet another controversy, this time for remarks he made about John McCain‘s war record. And now celebrities are once again weighing in on the latest misstep in his presidential campaign.
Appearing at the Family Leader Summit in Iowa with 2016 GOP hopefuls on Saturday, Trump was asked about McCain, whom he recently described as a “dummy.” McCain, of course, ran for president in 2008, losing to President Obama. He’s had a storied political career that began after he survived being a prisoner of war during Vietnam when his plane was shot down.
And that to Trump is exactly the problem. He said during the event, McCain “is a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.” The attack on one of the nation’s most revered veterans quickly sparked a backlash, and Trump attempted to clarify on social media. “Captured or not, all our soldiers are heroes,” he tweeted.
But he also continued to criticize McCain, writing on Twitter, “In addition to doing a lousy job in taking care of our Vets, John McCain let us down by losing to Barack Obama in his run for President!”
Trump further wrote on Facebook, “I am not a fan of John McCain because he has done so little for our Veterans and he should know better than anybody what the Veterans need, especially in regards to the VA. He is yet another all talk, no action politician who spends too much time on television and not enough time doing his job and helping the Vets.”
