THIS IS ONE IS A CARTOON … BUT IT STILL SCREAMS
We are all very much aware of the controversy that has been generated in view of the fact that the “donald” will not curb the avalanche of insults that drip from his surly, arrogant, egocentric mouth.
I’m no McCain fan yet, if anything, I sincerely honor his status as a POW.
I will leave the thoughts to you.
DEFINITION OF POW
A prisoner of war (POW, PoW, PW, P/W, WP, PsW, enemy prisoner of war (EPW) or “missing-captured”) is a person, whether combatant or non-combatant, who is held in custody by a belligerent power during or immediately after an armed conflict.
The earliest recorded usage of the phrase is dated 1660.
Donald Trump attack on John McCain war record is ‘new low in US politics’
Donald Trump attacked the Arizona senator John McCain on Saturday, July 18, for being shot down while a navy pilot during the Vietnam war.
Trump, who has been in a war of words with the 2008 Republican nominee, jibed of McCain:
“He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured?
I like people who weren’t captured.”
McCain was held prisoner by North Vietnam for five and a half years, and repeatedly tortured. Trump received several student deferments from Vietnam while in college. After graduating, he received a medical deferment.
Born and raised by underpaid public school teachers in Sanford, Fla., Andy Marlette graduated from the University of Florida and became staff editorial cartoonist at the Pensacola News Journal in 2007.
Marlette received a priceless editorial cartoon education while living with his uncle and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Doug Marlette in Hillsborough, N.C.
Doug’s tragic death in July of 2007 made evermore poignant the elder Marlette’s fierce and faithful devotion to the art form of editorial cartooning as a cornerstone of American free speech. With this in mind, Andy works daily to learn and uphold the disciplines and values passed on to him by his late uncle.
