Al Franken Agrees with Trump on John McCain’s War Hero Status
For those doubting that liberals are siding with Trump, you all need to think about that because even a liberal like Al Franken sides with Trump, specifically on his comments about John McCain not being a war hero.
In an article Al Franken wrote for salon about the presidential election he stated in regards to McCain’s military service;
I have tremendous respect for McCain but I don’t buy the war hero thing. Anybody can be captured. I thought the idea was to capture them. As far as I’m concerned he sat out the war.
To make sure everyone knew that he didn’t believe John McCain was a war hero, he decided to make it clear once again on the now defunct and unfortunately largely unpopular liberal radio station Air America by stating;
I mean, I consider you a hero, tremendous political courage, not, you know, the thing about five years, or five and a half years at the Hanoi Hilton; as far as I’m concerned you just sat out the war. I don’t consider that real heroism. Anybody can get captured, right?
So that about sums that up, even one of most liberal politicians agrees with Trump on certain issues. Now it’s time for the rest of us to realize liberals have gotten out of control and it’s time for a change, just like Bernie Sanders’ supporters are doing now by supporting Donald Trump for President.
Franken has even gone on to lie to fellow liberals about his comments by claiming they were a joke just to get them to leave him alone about the whole situation but his words speak for themselves.
