Donald Trump Disses “War Hero” John McCain: “I Like People Who Weren’t Captured”

Last night, I saw a CNN poll that indicated that Donald Trump is currently in the lead with Republican voters for the nomination for President. It’s really easy to laugh at Trump — dude is a an ass clown, the personification of a fart joke with toupee. This week, Huffington Post even declared that they would be covering Trump’s campaign in their Entertainment section, not the Politics section like the gaggle of other (almost-as-farcical) GOP hopefuls. AND YET. This mofo is actually gaining popularity! I know this world has gone crazy, but are conservative voters FOR REAL WITH THIS?

Hopefully not after today. Earlier, Donald Trump was speaking at the annual Family Leadership Summit, a conference of religious conservatives, and had this to say about “dummy” John McCain, who a previous speaker had called a “war hero”:

“[John McCain] is a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

Man, I’m not a fan of John McCain, but that is some fucked up shit spewing out of Donald Trump’s mouth. It’s also some dumb shit, because while most sane Americans will recoil at the comment, there’s nothing conservatives love more than the military (or at least blowharding about how much they love the armed forces and supporting the troops), so I REALLY cannot see this comment going over well with his supporters.  Meanwhile, fuck Mexico and all the rapists that are flooding into our country, amiright?

LOLOLOLOLOLOL. SIGH. Everything is depressing. I’m going back to bed.
