Hey, honestly, it's pretty hard not to love Trump on the radio warning John McCain, "At some point I fight back and it won’t be pretty.” I mean, seriously, does the man even remember that McCain was imprisoned for five years while fighting in a war and TORTURED?!
And that he's dying of brain cancer!
And for some posturing reason Trump thinks that him "fighting back" will send shivers down to McCain's knees because it won't be "pretty"?? As Howard Cosell once said, you are throwing spitballs at a battleship.
"Fight back"?? Trump had five deferments from fighting in Vietnam for heel spurs, when John McCain was a POW and being tortured. Trump's fighting experience was in a military academy as a school kid. McCain's was in the U.S. Navy.
It won't be "pretty"?! I suspect that most of the time John McCain was in prison being tortured he dreamed of the joy and honor of having a president of the United States upset at him, or even knowing who he was. I suspect right now with brain cancer, McCain would gladly take another decade or two of having a president upset at him daily. Not pretty? That would likely be ethereally beautiful.
The thing is, though, the Trump radio appearance was even more bizarre. That's because he preceded his threat by saying, “You know, I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very nice"
For the record, when you don't piss on someone, that is not "being nice." It's normal. Furthermore, when you're a sociopathic thug, and you don't swing an iron crowbar to bash in someone's head because you know you're under 24/7 surveillance, that is not "being nice" either. Let alone even "very, very nice." The concept of any kind of "nice" doesn't enter into it. What it is is well-advised self-control of your basic, sick instincts. Or, if you're normal to begin with, sane.
By the way, after writing this but before posting, John McCain released a statement about Trump's "threats" to him. It was pithy. And not unexpected. "I have faced tougher adversaries."
