12. The McCain Insults
Disagree and get annoyed with McCain all you want, there are few who would deny that he admirably served his country. He spent time in a POW camp and earned a purple heart and a bronze star for his service in Vietnam. Trump said that McCain didn’t deserve those honors because he “got caught,” and was therefore not a winner. Insulting war veterans rarely plays well in the media, and this got him plenty of hatred both in and out of the party.
