CNN anchor hits Trump: He didn't go to Vietnam 'until he was in his 70s' with 'Secret Service protec

CNN anchor Ana Cabrera on Sunday called out President Trump for failing to go to Vietnam until he was equipped with "Secret Service protection" after the president renewed his attacks against late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). Cabrera made the comments while noting that Trump has yet to forcefully denounce white supremacy in light of the mosque shootings that left dozens dead in New Zealand.

"The president did use his direct line to the American people to take more cheap shots at an American war hero who is not even alive to defend himself," Cabrera said on "CNN Newsroom." "Trump again slamming the late senator John McCain today, he says, for trying to derail his run for the presidency in 2016."

Cabrera noted that the attacks from Trump caused one of his allies, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), to defend McCain as "one of the most consequential senators" in U.S. history.

"Clearly not a position held by the president, who did, to his credit, did go to Vietnam, although not until he was in his 70s and with Secret Service protection," Cabrera added, apparently referencing Trump's military record as well as the recent summit in Vietnam between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

1. If he had not evaded the draft, he would have been sent.

He would have been an officer. How many of his own men would he have gotten killed before he was fragged?

6. No, Turbineguy, Trump would never have been sent to Vietnam.

That’s not how it worked back then. The guys who got drafted weren’t on the same rung that Trump was standing on. Their fathers didn’t know somebody who knew somebody.

10. On the bus ride...

to boot camp! Weak little whiners like Trump weren't tolerated, either by the Drill Sgts. or their fellow trainees. Think 'Private Pyle' in the movie "Full Metal Jacket".

5. "Hits Trump."

“Attacks Trump.”

When did the media in this country start mistaking criticism for violence?

So tired of it.

8. It's a new world.

Criticism is an attack. If you disagree, you’re “tearing down” or perhaps even “smearing”....or worse. It’s nuts.

14. This weekend, there was a thread about a woman "attacking" Chelsea Clinton.

Again, it was just criticism, no threats, no contact.

"Attack" has more dramatic effect than "Criticize".

17. Was going to use that example

but didn’t out of fear of incurring the wrath of the stalwart Clintonites around here.

When I first read the headline I thought someone had actually attacked her and felt sick about it.

7. Lindsey Graham is a piece of shit.

They have blackmail on him. I figure it’s pictures, but that of course is conjecture. For a person to swing one way to the other, even at the expense of your whole life’s belief, it can only be one thing.

And that’s why Lindsey is a piece of shit and never stood for country, but only his skinny old ass. Fuck him plus how many other traitors?

15. John McCain, like Barack Obama, is an obsession with Trump, due to insane jealousy.
