“He’s a nasty guy. Nobody likes him. Nobody in Congress likes him. Nobody likes him anywhere once they get to know him.” That’s the Donald talkin’ about Ted Cruz (listen). Everyone knew Cruz was just using Trump to boost his own popularity until he got a chance to take his place. “Nobody likes him,” and the Republicans would suffer “cataclysmic” losses if they ran him for president.

And no buffoons ridiculed you if you were in a plane that got shot down over enemy territory. And if you showed defiance and even humor, despite being tortured, yes, you were a war hero.
So what is with the 20% or so Republicans that think they are patriots but stick with draft-dodger Trump when he ridicules war-hero McCain? No, the Tea Party is not patriotic. Waving the flag, whether the US or the anti-US confederate flag, is not enough. Not even close.
