Candidate Donald Trump on John McCain.
“He’s not a war hero,” said Trump. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”
…McCain, a former Navy pilot, spent roughly five-and-half years in a notorious North Vietnamese prison known as the “Hanoi Hilton,” where he was repeatedly tortured. He spent two of those years in solitary confinement.

Back when Maverick was only a Navy man tortured by the enemy, he was Gomer Pyle. Now that he’s a millionaire fixing to deny fellow cancer patients chemo and radiation, he’s Sergeant Rock.
