READ: Meghan McCain Responds to Donald Trump on Twitter: ‘No One Believes You Care About Prisoners of War and ‘People Who Get Captured’

Well said.

President Donald Trump proclaimed Tuesday as National Former Prisoner of War Recognition Day and his announcement is earning fierce ridicule because of his treatment of the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ).

“We honor the Americans captured and imprisoned by foreign powers while carrying out their duties to defend this great Nation,” Trump wrote in a statement. “As a Nation, we must never forget or take for granted the traumatic ordeals of our former POWs.  With honor and valor, they served to keep our country safe, and they stayed the course — despite conditions that were often harsh and agonizing.”

McCain spent five years as a POW in Vietnam and had his military service routinely mocked by Trump, even after his death last August.

Trump, who avoided the draft, famously said in 2015 that McCain was a war hero solely because he was captured. “I like people who weren’t captured,” Trump said, three weeks into his White House bid.

Meghan McCain, the Senators eldest daughter, immediately called out Trump for his abysmal treatment of her father.

“No one believes you care about prisoners of war and ‘people who get captured.'”

She struck a nerve on Twitter.

Trump is a wizard at undermining himself.

Trump just cannot quit McCain.
