Trump: The senator from Arizona is not a national hero of the United States!

Hero Meaning in the Cambridge English Dictionary:
A person who is admired for having done something very brave or having achieved something.

This issue is lingering in the election media so to help you decide whether Trump fights “politically correct” people, fight for honesty in public, demean a national hero or just use John McCain for political spot. Is the senator who was a prisoner of war for 4 years when his fighter plane was shot down over Vietnam a national hero? Trump said,  “McCain was shot down, is that heroic?” I ask you for your  true answer: Is the senator admired for having flown a fighter jet over Viet Nam? Is the senator a hero for being captured by the enemy and held in jail and may be tortured for 4 years?

For what ever it is worth my opinion is that john was a brave man, an American patriot and a survivalist – but not a hero. What do you think? Is Trump right?

    He endured solitary confinement for two years, and wasn’t given medical treatment until captors learned he was the son of an admiral. When they finally saw him, his cellmates didn’t expect him to live a week, but he refused to give up. McCain was a PR problem for the North Vietnamese, and was offered opportunities to be traded early as a POW, but refused them to stay and support his fellow prisoners. In his military service, I vote hero.

    On the other hand, he’s also been an unfaithful husband, a so-so senator and a poor presidential candidate. But none of that tarnishes his finest hour, performed in service.

    I absolutely respect your vote that McCain is a hero. You may suggest a modified definition of “Hero” to Google or dictionaries. I’d vote for that.
