Ex McCain Aide Unloads On Trump: 'He's Just An A**hole!'

The line of Republicans who hate Trump and will say so just gets longer...

Add one more name to the list of Republicans willing to go on the record and say how they really feel about Donald Trump. Former John McCain aide Mark Salter told Politico that Trump is not just a bad candidate, he's a terrible human being.

Salter said Trump's comments about McCain -- "I like people who weren't captured" -- is bad enough, but given that McCain is an experienced politician, "he's in the business, he's a tough guy," but going after Serge Kovaleski, the disabled NY Times reporter. is beyond the pale.

“What kind of an assh*le does that?” Salter said.

“I mean, you don’t want a guy like that for a neighbor, for a friend, for a member of your church, for a colleague, for a boss. You wouldn’t want — really, you wouldn’t — you know, if he had a flat tire, you wouldn’t pull over and offer to help.”

Here's audio of the entire interview:
