Donald Trump‘s day of rage-tweeting has taken an abrupt turn, because he’s now specifically targeting John McCain.
The very foul mouthed Sen. John McCain begged for my support during his primary (I gave, he won), then dropped me over locker room remarks!

Trump has been trashing Paul Ryan and mainstream GOPers throughout the day, due to the condemnation he has received over leaked 2005 audio of him talking about grabbing women “by the pussy.” The connotations of the remarks cost Trump several of his endorsements over the past few days, including McCain’s.
The Arizona senator stood behind Trump for months, even after Trump insulted him by saying he wasn’t a war hero because he was taken prisoner during the Vietnam War. As part of Trump’s tweeting earlier today, he boasted about how the “shackles have been taken off me,” meaning he may now operate however he wants, regardless of the Republican Party’s broader interests.
