Bill O’Reilly tonight confronted Donald Trump over his remarks about John McCain, even calling him out for dodging the question and misunderstanding the problem people had with what he said.
Trump, in case you still haven’t heard, said of McCain’s war hero status, “He’s a war hero ’cause he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured.” He got savaged all over the place by conservatives and his GOP presidential rivals, while McCain himself simply said Trump owes all POWs an apology.
O’Reilly tonight told Trump he could have easily made cogent points on McCain not supporting vets enough without resorting to personal attacks. Trump kept trying to justify what he said and cited one fact-check siding with him, but O’Reilly called him out.
O’Reilly said, “Come on, Donald! You know the way it came off wasn’t correct.”
And on top of that, on the charge McCain doesn’t do enough for vets, O’Reilly corrected him and told him it’s unfair to make McCain the “whipping boy” for all the problems people have with the VA.
