John McCain suffered a “detainment” of over 5 years. I use the term “detainment,” as that is what the Obama Administration now uses in referring to those currently being held by Iran, and just to note, that they did nothing in negotiating their release.
John McCain came home as a P.O.W. He, more than most, had a huge opportunity to be a “hero” and to make some sort of difference, especially for Veterans. But instead, he has spent decades doing absolutely NOTHING in Congress for Veterans, or in any way whatsoever:
"The same is true regarding Iran’s nuclear program. McCain has received widespread criticism for a “joke” at an April 2007 campaign stop in which he sang “bomb bomb bomb, bomb-bomb Iran” to the tune of the Beach Boys’ “Barbara Ann.” But his nonjoking comments are only marginally less troubling. He has stated repeatedly that an Iran with nuclear weapons poses an “unacceptable risk” to regional and global stability. “There is only one thing worse than military action, and that is a nuclear armed Iran.”
Sooooo....what did McCain do to stop that?!! Nothing, absolutely nothing.
He COULD HAVE been a hero…but he relinquished his creds on that the minute he landed back on U.S. soil…and all the what, decades he’s had to make a difference. Instead, he sat back and let our Vets spiral into the abyss that is now waiting lines, lack of help, and letting Obama cut them from service when we need them most.
He also purposely handed over the election to Obama and Trump only noted he lost…I would have gone further. I thought that he handed election to Obama back then when he, without vetting, chose Sarah Palin .
Trump was right again...McCain should not be hailed as a “war hero”…when he came home, he was anything but.
I used to call out this Administration…until I got seriously afraid to do so. Thank you Donald Trump for giving me my voice, and my courage back!
