    Well he did say of McCain he likes war heroes that weren’t captured

  2. Yep, Bone Spurs, no one has done TO the military what you’ve done !

  3. denies everything! including responsibility.

    • @J You’re not commenting for an actual discussion. You have your views and you won’t evaluate anything that contradicts them; you avoid them. You’re in the midst of a discussion under false pretenses.

    • @Beakerz Oh so you missed the entire point? That’s not my fault.. You guys are supposed to be providing facts around Biden’s endless qualifications and you keep getting lost in your own feelings for Trump.

      Why avoid the topic?

    • Everybody knows trump said it because he is a Punk.

    • @Beakerz Gave up?

    • @J Went to sleep; youtube isn’t my life.

      You’ve yet to actually make a point… you just started talking gibberish about Biden, who I don’t support either but will be getting my vote simply because he isn’t an outright traitor. What a sad election year…

  4. Trump is lieing conman… He said and others have verified it… Instead of a Bible try a polygraph

  5. Remember he openly called McCain a loser on his past POW status?So u believe his denial this time??

  6. Liar in chief.

  7. It’s all about “ME, ME, ME”…
    Yeah… that confirms he made those remarks

  8. Kristin Bradshaw | September 4, 2020 at 1:38 AM | Reply

    Of course it’s true. He uses our military as props! To open his doors and attack our own citizens.

    • @Disco Nunu There’s that avoidance. No doubt you picked it up from Trump, eh? Never once did I weigh in on whether or not McCain was a war hero. Let me re-iterate: believe what you want on that front, no one cares.

      Let me focus you in on the *bolded* part of the quote: “…I don’t like people who were captured, okay? I hate to tell ya.”

      He’s a liar, a traitor, and has no respect for the military. They’re just suckers and losers to him.

    • Whenever an ANTI-TRUMP story is sourced by ANONYMOUS sources, you know it’s COMPLETE BS!! More election time PROPAGANDA!! Oh well, no surprise here, more FAKE NEWS from the MOUTHS of IDIOTS who simply believe ORANGEMAN BAD, like good little brainwashed idiots on the LEFT! Kayleigh smashes the ATLANTIC:

    • @Beakerz He has no respect for the military that’s why he’s trying to get the troops back home, do you know anyone in the military and how they view Trump or are you just speaking for them? I can tell you from someone that has numerous friends in the military they see what Trump does for them. It’s the same rhetoric that BLM pushes, crowds of majority white people pretending they care for these “issues” just to try and use them as pawns in the election. Perhaps you should take a look back at history, you’re fighting against what Malcolm X and MLK actually peacefully protested for. I’d suggest you read this quote from Malcolm X:

    • @Disco Nunu More avoidance and putting words in my mouth. I never once spoke for anyone but myself, and never told you my political options outside of my view of Trump.

      Strange of you to assume I’m a liberal based off my not liking him.

    • @Beakerz It’s easy to lump you in with your liberal ideologies of you thinking he hates our troops and spewing the exact same rhetoric as this video even after eye witnesses debunk these anonymous sources. His issue is with calling POW’s that bombed civilians “war heroes”. He was talking about McCain when he made the comment about him liking people that aren’t captured so to completely remove him from the subject matter just takes everything out of context. Then it’s you making the assumption that he hates our military that just so happens to be the best in the world. Continue to think that traitors that bomb civilians aren’t losers and are in fact actually “war heroes” for doing such a great service to this country. There’s nothing strange about assuming you’re liberal based if you’re an exact clone of all the other sheep repeating the same falsehood of him hating POW’s and our troops. When you try to remove the entire subject that he’s referencing from the quote then you really have no argument to make, your argument is quite literally that he hates POW’s and our military when you can look back and read about all the things he’s done for our military and troops. Go do the research without the mainstream media being your sources, it really works wonders for your mind it lets you think for yourself and actually feel like a human. Or better yet, just remove things from quotes because it helps fit your narrative.

  9. Doesnt help his case he said similar things about mccain on record

    • @Beakerz So McCain can attack Trumps personal character, but when Trump says stuff directly about him back, this means he’s talking about all American servicemen? You’re delusional.

    • @CBNKPRANKS Watch the video. Here’s the quote for ya:

      “He… He’s not a war hero. He is a war hero… he’s a war hero ’cause he was captured. *I don’t like people who were captured, okay? I hate to tell ya.* He’s… He’s a war hero because he was captured, and I believe, *perhaps* he’s a war hero.”

      He publically disparaged POWs; there’s no other way to cut it.

    • @Beakerz this doesn’t even include the time he disparaged the gold star parents. Dude obviously has no respect for military people, but he has no problem pretending to care if it’ll score him some conservative military votes come November…

    • @CBNKPRANKS Is Stars and Stripes a valid enough publication for you?

      Trump ordered their shutdown at the end of the month over publishing this, then rolled it back on Twitter to make himself out to be a ‘hero’, no doubt. What a deceptive, dishonest traitor.

    • Beakerz McCain lost the 2008 elections and that’s why he is a loser

  10. You know he’s lying he called the late senator McCain everything but a child of God in many interviews

    • @Beakerz Very true. We’re just all so tired and drained from this cold hearted thug. We need to heal and have poitive leadership. If anyone reading this is a pig supporter, don’t respond. Because I won’t. To each their own. Agree to disagree. Good comment Beakerz.

    • McCain was an ISIS supporter

    • Whenever an ANTI-TRUMP story is sourced by ANONYMOUS sources, you know it’s COMPLETE BS!! More election time PROPAGANDA!! Oh well, no surprise here, more FAKE NEWS from the MOUTHS of IDIOTS who simply believe ORANGEMAN BAD, like good little brainwashed idiots on the LEFT! Kayleigh smashes the ATLANTIC:

    • @MJB For Trump
      Leaking allows the government to use the media to convey anonymous statements for its own advantage also.

    • Undiluted and Uncensored | September 7, 2020 at 8:30 AM | Reply

      President Trump ordered that the nation mourn John McCain in a very respectful manner, given that he was not a former president. They definitely had their disagreements, though. Do you think it was a one-sided affair? I don’t.

  11. Of course Cadet Bone Spurs said it. Sounds exactly like him. He disparages everyone who leaves his administration. How can anyone be that bad at hiring?

  12. Tunadoctor Wong | September 4, 2020 at 1:57 AM | Reply

    He said it, otherwise he wouldn’t have said that they were people that he got rid of in his administration.

  13. Arden McConnell | September 4, 2020 at 1:57 AM | Reply

    He lies about EVERYTHING! Can never trust what he says. Get rid if him.

    Trump: nobody’s done what I’ve done for our military

    **trump proceeds to list Obama’s achievements**

  15. The King Maker | September 4, 2020 at 2:12 AM | Reply

    He literally said the same thing publicly about Mccain,

    • He said it about McCain specifically in 2000 and then in 2016. He and mcCain had been feuding for two decades. Trump was mad because McCain would not support him in the Senate after Trump was elected. In 2016, Trump backed off a bit from his previous remarks calling McCain a hero. But I agree that what he said before was not very nice.

    • D. Matz. He called McCain a loser cause he lost the 2008 elections…

  16. 1:20 – He thinks he’s praising the military and somehow it becomes about him. He just can’t give anybody credit for anything.

    • Why would he give credit to people who do nothing… He actually rebuilt the reformed the military, he always stood with the military, he called John McCain a loser because of the 2008 elections, but there is no tape of him calling dead America soldiers losers and suckers, that is just a blatant lie from CNN and the democrats to lie they’re way into office.

    • @Elias Ziad – He did say he doesn’t like people who get captured, so any Prisoner of War he doesn’t like. I think a great many military people would take offense to that.

    • @nick smith Not a big fan of live tv, huh? 🙂 “It’s a hoax!”

And zero evidence exists Russia affected 1 vote. You people have been brainwashed. its been 4 years, when are you quacks gonna let it go? you are beating a dead horse

    • oh, and the meuller report was even written by all Hillary supporers and still found nothing

    • M. Rodrigo Lemus | September 5, 2020 at 1:24 PM | Reply

      @nick smith : WRONG… Every American Intelligence, Including a Republican Senate Report says Russia Colluded to help Trump… Sad Fred Flintstone DOJ Attorney General William Barr LIED about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Report… Mueller knew a sitting President can only be prosecuted by Congress… and he gave them the tools to do it… But Moscow Mitch LIED in Congress to protect an IMPEACHED So-Called President COMRADE Donald Trump… GET INFORMED DUMAZ… The only Brainwashed here is you.

  18. There he goes with his air accordion, that means he is embellishing his lie.

    • You lib-tards will believe any lie used to gaslight you from the truth.

    • Lol.

    • How do you know, have you looked into his brain?

      @mm California roflmaopimp…wow really this coming from a trump supporter!!! stop projecting yourself …over 18,000 fact checked lies …wow are you that stupid??? shut your pie hole ….by the way he has done this on tv calling a Vietnam vet a loser or have you forgotten about that…it seems you’re the one believing lies….all 18,000+ of them …that is wilful stupidity at its best!!! But hey thanks for projecting who and what you are !!!

    • Sask Sun seekers | September 5, 2020 at 12:48 PM | Reply

      @Elias Ziad what brain…you know what you call a fly orbiting trump’s head??? a space invader!!!!

  19. Remember how he disrespected John McCain for being captured in Hanoi?

    • He has nothing but disdain for people who join the military, threatened to cut Jr. out of the family if he joined.  He didn’t bother going to memorial services in Europe because the rain would mess up his hair. Most recently “people are saying” he asked why he should have to go there, it’s full of nothing but losers. THAT’S what he thinks of the military. Him saluting soldiers makes me SICK.

    • he said “I like people who don’t get captured”. We do not need second hand information to know how he feels about the military. He told us himself. Too many people in this country have a short memory [or seemingly no memory function at all]

    • It Was A Good Idea At The Time | September 4, 2020 at 8:18 AM | Reply

      @Amelinda TOEIC *SPAM!*

    • @j v Not only that….he refused the opportunity to BE captured. 
      trump supporters have no memory at all.

    • andrew mcgarrigle | September 7, 2020 at 2:39 AM | Reply

      And Trump said that in front of the cameras so if he was going to say this he would just say it In front a cameras there’s a reason why it’s been debunked by ppl who were there because it’s untrue and very disrespectful of the MSM to say this about troops so take your anger out on the MSM for saying this about the troops because if Trump wanted to say it he would just come out and say it

  20. “Many people are saying”… funny how Trump talks about imaginary people all the time, but decries anonymous sources in verified news articles as phony

    • @#j G There, there — don’t cry! …the Toddler in Chief is doing enough of that already.

    • A racist in cotton clothing its never ending. In a speach in 1985 Biden using the N word, stating “We already have A N- – Mayor, we dont need any more N- —BIG SHOTS!”

    • @#j G Conveniently leaving out the wee little fact that Biden was quoting someone else at the time, hmm?

    • @#j G (bet you can’t guess the party of the person that Biden was quoting — Charles Emile “Peppi” Bruneau)
