Veteran Montel Williams Unloads on Trump: ‘Circus Sideshow and a Punk’


Montel Williams, a veteran of the Navy and the U.S. Marine Corps, got pretty pissed off at Donald Trump today for his underhanded shot at John McCain for being captured while he served in the Vietnam War, calling him a “carnival barker and a punk.”

The reactions have been flooding in, and Williams too wanted to make it known he’s really outraged with Trump’s remarks, especially as a vet:

He wrote on Facebook, “John McCain earned the title of American hero. Doesn’t mean he’s always right on policy, but it means his service is owed a special level of respect PERIOD.”

And for the cherry on top, Williams posted a video online trashing Trump as well, saying that while he disagrees with McCain politically, he wouldn’t dare say anything close to what Trump did.

It’s a safe bet that Williams won’t be the only vet with something to say about The Donald…
