John McCain was one of the countless politicians who denounced Donald Trump publicly following comments he made in 2005 that were leaked to the public.
The statement on his website read “There are no excuses for Donald Trump’s offensive and demeaning comments. No woman should ever be victimized by this kind of inappropriate behavior. He alone bears the burden of his conduct and alone should suffer the consequences.” He officially withdrew his support of Trump last Saturday, a day after the leak.
This, of course, is hardly the first time the two had feuded before. Last year Trump stated that McCain was only a war hero because he got captured.
Now he’s slamming McCain again.
Trump says the “shackles” are off, so back on Tuesday. Trump assailed McCain as “foul mouthed” and noted he had endorsed McCain in his primary fight.
“Then he dropped me over locker room remarks,” tweeted Trump.
The very foul mouthed Sen. John McCain begged for my support during his primary (I gave, he won), then dropped me over locker room remarks!

There’s some hypocrisy here – as The Donald is hardly the only person who’d made controversial comments in the past.
As Clash Daily reported:
Senator McCain. That paragon of virtue. That defender of women. Watch as he unloads on a female reporter with a STREAM of profanities just for having asked a question.
Where’s his holier-than-thou ‘outrage’ now?
It’s bad enough that he broke into a stream of curses.
But his language was PERSONALLY abusive to her, as well.
Where does verbal abuse rate in the lexicon of feminist sins?
Back in 2008 when he was running for President, McCain’s temper was a cause of concern. “McCain’s history of hot temper raises concerns” headlined one article at McClatchy DC back in September of 2008.
If Trump’s temper is a problem – John McCain is the last person who should be the one lecturing him about it.
