Whatever you think of McCain as a politician, mediocre at best in my opinion, the term traitor is disgusting given his military service.

His military record is what puts the stain on McCain "is that him singing"

How many of his countrymen died on his shifts? 100's

His military service has been somewhat exaggerated to the point of being termed a war hero. He liked to party a lot. He was considered a reckless fighter pilot. A few of his missions resulted in him crashing by his own hands. He was captured and tortured by the Viet Cong.
Most would consider his military career less than remarkable, but we're talking about John McCain.

None of which makes him a traitor, or makes any sense out of the accusation that he was responsible for the death of hundreds of Americans.

His wet-start on the Forrestal killed 167 shipmates and he was transferred to the
USS Oriskany before the dead were all counted

This was before the "songbird" accusations.

You accused him of killing his fellow servicemen by believing some BS political propaganda. There are tons of videos of what happened on the Forrestal and this is a blatant lie that your perpetuating.

As is the 5 plane crashes story.

There was no "wet start". The fire was caused by an electrical surge that launched a rocket from a plane behind McClain.

I don't like him or lump him, and that's based on truth, not moronic rumors. He is no better or worse than most of the political hacks in Congress. His voters are the ones to judge him, and they keep sending him back to the Senate.

Yup.

The Forrestal is plain as day what happened. McCain and his wingman's plane got hit by a rocket on a F4 that malfunctioned and their ordinance cooked off.

Whatever. He and Romney both refused to recognize Trump as a valid candidate, trashing him in the process. They as well as hung their support with Hillary in doing so.
I know no have an ounce of respect for either, and yes both are traitors to their party. Fake news, bullshit, or whatever you call it they deserve it for being complete unreliable assholes.
