Donald Trump appears to have lost the sane vote, the Latino vote, the self respecting vote, the moderate vote, the reader vote, and the voter vote. He now appears to have alienated the entire Republican party after making fun of John McCain because he spent six years in a POW camp. That should go over swimmingly at the Elk’s Lodge:
“He’s not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”
Cue the gong. Trump of course has never fought in any wars not counting Twitter. Looking back on his campaign, this might be the moment when he decided to start videographing the rest of it for an impending special on E!. Insulting one of the most respected and longest serving members of your own party, particularly over the fact that his plane was shot down in Vietnam and not that his flag pendant is crooked, bridges the gap between irresponsible, psychotic, and just plain stupid. Trump has finally attained zero sum status. I’m sure there are a few hard right Republicans out there who lack respect for the military. He’s got their votes. Bust out the kerosine. Perhaps he’ll hold a fundraiser in their fuck cellar. Bunker my ass.
