Earlier this morning Donald Trump took aim at Sen. John McCain, who attacked him previously for whipping up the crazies, and said this in response about his war hero status.
"He's not a war hero," Trump said. Sarcastically, Trump quipped, "He's a war hero because he was captured." Then, he added, "I like people that weren't captured."
It didn't take long for all the candidates stacked up behind Trump in the latest polling to attack him for those remarks.

The RNC released a statement condemning the Donald also:
"Senator McCain is an American hero because he served his country and sacrificed more than most can imagine. Period. There is no place in our party or our country for comments that disparage those who have served honorably.”
And to think it's only July, 2015.
