So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Monday, July 20, 2015.

Donald Trump has done it again, setting off a media frenzy after saying that John McCain is only “a war hero because he was captured.”

“He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) says that Trump’s recent comments about John McCain disqualify Trump from holding the office of President.

 

Even Hillary Clinton is defending McCain from Trump’s comments.

“Donald Trump, finally a candidate whose hair gets more attention that mine,” Clinton quipped.

“But, there’s nothing funny about the hate he is spewing at immigrants and their families, and now the insults he’s directed at a genuine war hero, Senator John McCain,” she added. “It’s shameful, and so is the fact that it took so long for most of his fellow Republican candidates to start standing up to him.”

Rick Perry got in on the act too once again dumping on the Donald.

“We’re seeing the real Donald Trump now…. We’re seeing an individual who’s more interested in throwing invectives and this hyperbolic rhetoric out there, rather than laying out solutions.” 

The liberal push to shame white people by telling them to “check their privilege” is intellectually bankrupt and morally intolerant.

Bill Cosby is a disgusting criminal.

Two disgusting hate groups yelled at each other Saturday in South Carolina as the KKK and the New Black Panther Party held dueling protests while the Confederate flag was being removed from the Capitol.
