If you find Donald Trump’s comments about Sen. John McCain inappropriate and offensive, here are a few important questions for you:
Are Trump’s comments about McCain more important than our hero veterans being left on fake waiting lists to die by Obama’s Department of Veterans Affairs?
Are Trump’s comments about McCain more important than our hero soldiers left disarmed at military bases and recruitment centers, so they are helpless when attacked by armed terrorists?
(Mind you: THINGS that as a powerful U.S. senator, McCain failed to correct!)

Are Trump’s comments about McCain more important than Obama’s refusal to lower the flag to half-mast at the White House in honor of the five slain military heroes from last week’s terrorist attack?
Are Trump’s comments about McCain more important than Obama’s refusal to use “Islam” and “terrorist” in the same sentence?
The White House and mainstream media both called the latest killings in Tennessee by a radical Islamic terrorist named Mohammed a “domestic terror attack.”
Are Trump’s comments about McCain more important than the fact that Obama has left the border wide open, thereby allowing terrorists to easily walk into our country? Who says it's wide open? U.S. law enforcement.
Are Trump’s comments about McCain more important than the fact Obama has made it easy for immigrants from Muslim countries to come to America? Over 127,000 visas were issued just last year for students from Muslim countries. This is a terrorist disaster waiting to happen.
Are Trump’s comments about McCain more important than the murder of a beautiful young lady in broad daylight in San Francisco at the hands of an illegal Mexican national who had been deported FIVE times?
And as Trump points out, Obama hasn't even bothered to call her parents and offer his condolences.
Are Trump’s comments about McCain more important than Obama committing crimes against the American people by using the IRS, FBI and Department of Justice to try to silence and even IMPRISON his political opponents?
Are Trump’s comments about McCain more important than Obama keeping a secret RACE-BASED database in order to force every school, neighborhood and bank decision in America to be based on “equality,” “social justice,” and “race”?
Are Trump’s comments about McCain more important than 45 million Americans on welfare for 48 consecutive months in Obama’s America?
Are Trump’s comments about McCain more important than a negative GDP growth rate in the first quarter (meaning our economy is going backwards)?
If the Federal Reserve's prediction of 1.9 percent GDP growth for 2015 is correct, Obama will be the first president in history with seven straight years under 3 percent growth.
Are Trump’s comments about McCain more important than $8 trillion in new debt added under Obama (a 70 percent increase) that threatens to destroy our children’s future?
Are Trump’s comments about McCain more important than Obama's lies and fraud about Obamacare when he said, “If you like your health insurance, you can keep it?” At the time he said it, Obama knew that 93 million Americans would lose their insurance. Isn’t that fraud?
Are Trump's comments about McCain more important than the cover-up of Benghazi, when Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton both knew it was a terrorist attack, but lied and blamed it on a film no one watched, to save Obama’s re-election?

Please keep in mind they refused all attempts to mount a rescue operation too. Trump’s words didn’t cost anyone their life.
Are Trump’s comments about McCain more important than Hillary deleting 32,000 emails - she claims none of these were any of your business. Do you believe her?
Are Trump's comments about McCain more important than Hillary accepting $2 billion in donations to the Clinton Foundation, much of it from foreign governments while serving as Secretary of State, then awarding contracts to her big donors?
And are Trump’s comments about McCain more important than Hillary’s Clinton Foundation taking in $149 million last year but only donating $9 million to charity? Isn’t that called a charity scam?
I wouldn’t doubt the only reason Hillary is supporting Obama’s terrible Iran deal is that he threatened to open DOJ and IRS criminal investigations of the corrupt Clinton Foundation. That’s how “Chicago politics” works…even within your own party! Ask New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez.
Folks, the economy is failing. Our foreign policy is failing. Islamic State is thriving. Our enemies are laughing. The middle class is being destroyed. There are 107 million Americans are on some form of welfare. Obamacare is an unmitigated disaster for the middle class and the big rate increases haven’t even started yet. The treaty with Iran is the worst in U.S. history. Our debt threatens to destroy our children's future.
None of this has happened because of words. It’s the actions above that are destroying America and the American dream.
Yet Obama, Hillary, the establishment politicians in Washington, D.C. (including John McCain) and the mainstream media want you to pay attention only to one comment by Donald Trump. According to the media, that's the biggest news story in America.
My question is why does an inappropriate one liner by Donald Trump even merit a headline, let alone the lead story in the news?
Because the establishment and the mainstream media are scared to death of Donald Trump. He’ll stop the gravy train. He’ll investigate the corruption and bribery. He’ll prosecute the criminals in the Washington, D.C. political class ripping off the American people and destroying the middle class. They are using Trump's words to distract you from seeing the actions that are destroying our country. Their actions.
They are so scared they’ll stop at nothing to destroy him. So Donald Trump is treated differently than any other candidate. They record his every word - searching for the one word or sentence that can ruin his presidential ambitions.
Of course John McCain is a war hero. That is not up for debate. Trump was angry. He was responding to attacks by McCain. He let his anger get the best of him. Trumps words aren’t politically correct.
So if the actions above taken by Obama, Hillary and the Washington, D.C. career politicians don’t bother you…
If you like the direction of America and like things exactly as they are…
If you think words are more important than actions, or jobs, or the economy, or your healthcare...
Don’t vote for Trump.
