The RNC Condemns Trump’s Comments About McCain

GOPThe Republican National Committee released a statement this afternoon condemning Donald Trump‘s attack on John McCain‘s war hero status.

In case you haven’t heard, Trump slammed McCain today by saying, “He’s a war hero ’cause he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured.”

That comment was too much for a lot of conservatives, especially Trump’s Republican presidential rivals, and, it seems, the RNC as well.

This is the statement released by RNC Communications Director Sean Spicer:

Senator McCain is an American hero because he served his country and sacrificed more than most can imagine. Period. There is no place in our party or our country for comments that disparage those who have served honorably.
