    So – Trump’s pettiness goes beyond the grave. Is anyone surprised? McCain had his flaws, to be sure, but seems to have been a basically honourable person. I’ve been a teacher for almost 30 years, and when I was in college there was the description of a “slow-maturing adolescent boy” that showed up in a course. I have yet to find a better description of the POTUS.

    What an ill-natured midget of a man. His envy and hatred have no boundaries.
    Rest In Peace, Senator McCain. You will live on in the hearts of the real patriots.

    The only reason Trump does things is because of public outcry, it does not come from within his own feelings and heart. Trump is a low life!

    So, this is your guy trump supporters? This is your hope for the future, your idea of an honorable man, the subject of your respect and admiration? This is your personification of “make america great again”?………… Staggering……..

    It sorta defeats the point ,to lower the flag [again] to show respect by having multiple republican senators asking for the white house to do a simple thing in a honour of a man who served…..for if he doesn’t understand the will of the people and common decency, to do the right thing , then how can he be equal to the highest office of the land ? , when he cannot do something , that requires almost no political thought and only a likewise respect for his fellow man, then how can he counter or be equal to even the lowest member of the American government , who would easily avoid such a disgrace ? 🙁

    Is that how Trump runs his presidency, by a series of knee jerk reactions to public opinion?, if memory serves me right there was others who conducted themselves similarly, Roman Emperors!, will someone have the balls to get this fool out of the white house?

    It’s a meaningless gesture now. “President” Trump once again displays his total lack of patriotism and class, and his disrespect for our military, and it’s heroes. Sad, Disgraceful, and no surprise at all.

    At full mask, just illuminates the pettiness and smallness of this POTUS as all the Criminal Investigations close in and around him… Already evidence of Trump directing the Felonies to influence the outcome of Election 2016… Just wait till the Honorable Robert Mueller’s Report proves the obvious, Trump’s Conspiracy with the Murderer Dictator Putin, then will begin the removal of this Traitor President and his illegitimate presidency and expose his Criminal Enterprise…

    You’ve expected more since the day he entered office. He’s too small a man to give more. Stop expecting it and stop giving the bully air time. This is a time to honor the honorable. That obviously is not trump.

    Tramp is such a petty jealous little imbecile. In some way…I think Tramp is actually disturbed that the sickness and death of Senator McCain is stealing his thunder. Deep down I think that Tramp is jealous little troll who doesn’t like people who are nicer, smarter and more well liked than he.

    Ouch, has to be a blow to poor Trump’s fragile ego. He really is behaving like a spoiled crybaby instead of behaving like a responsible adult. I don’t even think he respects himself in the slightest and has to take this out on anyone he can find. I don’t think Trump has any true friends, as I don’t think anyone will come to his aid when he really needs it and would rather leave him to rot.

    Says something when McCain has representatives from both parties giving speeches. Trump isn’t exactly the human trash McCain, or any former president, would want to give a speech. It would be a bunch of nonsense blabbering and run-on phrases about Trump himself.

    The real truth here , is that trump still doesn’t really get it…. , why his actions are hated by a lot of his fellow citizens, , what to someone like McCain , was a natural act,  of honouring a fellow citizen who has done a significant [wether you believed in what he was doing or not] service for his country. Trump equally will not understand , that those who berate him [like a child], again for lowering the flag again ,as it shows his ignorance , as others would have found that response before,  that is conducted as easily as eating and breathing , of honouring those that serve, rather than those that do things for, the benefit of just themselves 🙁

    I found out why Trump cannot make McCain funeral. Bone spur in his head apparently. I have never seen such an appalling display from an official of this office in my life. He is a petulant child and a disgrace to the United States.

    *“He’s not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”*

    The fact is that Trump is only doing this because of the small amount of backlash from his own supporters. If it were just us who told him how wrong he is then he wouldn’t listen. He doesn’t care. He is incapable of swallowing his huge ego and being a real man and a real president.

    What a sickening excuse for a human being. And here I thought Donald might take this chance to show a tiny bit of actual decency, by gladly showing respect where it is due.

    * * * My comment pertains to the FOX (faux news) report on 8/27/18 Tiger loves Donny. Faux is the French definition for fake. I explained it for “the base” as they are unfamiliar with Webster’s. > It behooves Tiger Woods & Donny J. T. to emalgamate (members of the “base,” fetch your dictionaries) as they are of the kindred spirit because they belong to the minority group of VILE, DESPICABLE, CHEATING PHILANDERERING HUSBANDS. If a man dishonors his wife and has a total disregard for his wedding vows and very basic human decency, he is by far a subjacent human being, devoid of a soul. This catagoirization defiantly includes former President William Cllnton. Therefore this comment cannot be misconstrued as politically motivated. All three of the “horn dogs” mentioned above certainly ignored the example of the fine, honorable, true American hero, Senator John McCain, a real man who remained forever loyal to his spouse & our nation. Losing this dear man that our country desperately needs (especially as the antidote for (Trump’ism ) has true, loving, husbands such as myself wondering why Mr. McCain was taken from us rather than any of the aforementioned “Schmendricks.” Ladies, please believe me sincere, true, honorable, men, loathe these schmendricks. They are simply “smegma” in the eyes of good men. OiVey !
