Dark Skies: I don't think Trump is getting the message. I just read this: "While speaking in Lima, Ohio, on Wednesday, President Trump said that he gave the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) the “kind of funeral that he wanted”—and complained that he didn’t “get [a] thank you” afterwards. “I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted—which, as president, I had to approve,” Trump said. “I don’t care about this, but I didn’t get thank you—that’s okay. We sent him on the way, but I wasn’t a fan of John McCain.” I would love to hear a rational Republican (if there are any left) explain how they can continue to support this obviously troubled and self centered man?
