Why Does the Donald Hate the Maverick?
When most people die, they are done talking. But when special people die, their legacy, laughter and legitimacy live on forever. John S McCain III, the Senator from Arizona, Navy war hero and statesmen is still talking and winning the argument, even after death. The McCain premise is simple. Be a politician and work as hard as possible to be honest. The gift of his six decades of service to his country sure makes a bone-spur seem silly.
No love is lost between John McCain and President Donald J. Trump. There is nothing but animosity, disdain and disrespect between them. McCain seems to have been the embodiment of all that Trump dislikes about America, and Trump, the demonic proof of all that is wrong with Washington and bad people in general.
The lack of respect that our president has shown John McCain earned him an outright decree from true patriot McCain himself, that the President not be part of his funeral services. You see, Trump cannot control a dead man’s wishes.
On Sunday (8-26-2018), the flag above the White House flew at half-staff to honor our true American treasure. However, on Monday morning the flag was back up full staff. President Trump hasn’t issued a presidential proclamation with an order to lower the flags. In tradition and law, the flag can be lowered in honor by presidential proclamation, as was done over five days for Senator Teddy Kennedy. The lack of comment or action from the President about John McCain demonstrates our Great Orange Leader’s pettiness and lack of care for American values. He might as well just spit in the face of every serving member of the Armed Forces.
Perhaps Trump is wishing that all the TV channels will stop talking about John McCain and get back to covering him. One newspaper commented that the outpouring was closer to what a former president would receive than a five-term Senator. Trump’s departure from this earth will not net this kind of homage. McCain’s back story shows a lot of what Trump isn’t, and that obviously bothers our frail, little-baby president.
Trump doesn’t respect truth and honesty. Decency is viewed by the Donald as a weakness that must be cured. Like a poison that flows through his veins, the lack of apologizing for misspeaking or a bad decision is an embarrassing weakness, not a virtue. His accuracy must be rubbed out as soon as possible.
When candidate Trump said that John McCain wasn’t a war hero because he was captured, that was a joke that got noticed. Once made, Donald Trump could not pull that statement back into his tiny, damaged brain. He thinks everything he says gets etched into stone as the truth. There lies the link between Trump and pre-historic Neanderthal man. He would rather disappoint decent people than admit he was trying to be funny or wrong.
When you ask the question why a sitting president would act like this, perhaps we should also look at the Justice Department policy that says a sitting president cannot be indicted. Maybe we need to update our laws and policies based on the president we have rather than the president we deserve. Why not indict Donald Trump?
Trump’s treatment of John McCain, in contrast to the way he treats the President of Russia, is eye-opening on so many levels. Trump is not critical of Putin because Putin is not critical of Trump. Trump honors any tyrant, dictator or murderer who says complimentary things about him more than someone who fought for his own country. That country, of course, is the U.S.A. Does that not make Trump a traitor?
This stubborn attitude and unwillingness to be a real man and at least say nice things about the dearly departed makes Trump no better than the drunk on the corner. He can only hope his organs can process all the vile and hate pouring out of his broken, spineless form. He’s not my president.
Let me summarize it this way. Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America, is jealous of John McCain III. Perhaps the president, with all his endorsements and claim of some evangelical mandate, should read the Holy Bible to find out how to handle this one. I would recommend John 3:14, “But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth.”
I cannot deny the truth. Trump is a worthless, lousy piece of shit.
