In the recent weeks, Republican Senator John McCain has taken such a stance against Donald Trump that it begs the question, is McCain a “Hero or Traitor”?
There is no question that John McCain’s time as a prisoner of war has made him a war hero, but his military service isn’t in question. McCain’s service to our country as an elected leader is in question.
In a trip to Germany on Friday, McCain said that the Trump administration is in “disarray” when he spoke to the Munich Security Conference.
In an interview with Meet The Press, McCain said Trump is wrong for going after the media. The Arizona Senator said, “That is how dictators get started.”
McCain has also sided with Democrats during the confirmation votes.

Why is John McCain so against Trump?
Rand Paul, the Kentucky Senator came to Trump’s defense on Sunday when discussing his thoughts on ABC’s This Week as he described McCain’s motivations.
“Everything that he says about the president is colored by his own personal dispute he’s got running with President Trump, and it should be taken with a grain of salt, because John McCain’s the guy who’s advocated for war everywhere.”
Paul went on to say that the disagreement comes over “foreign policy”, but says, “John McCain has been wrong on just about everything for almost four decades.”
Rand Paul could be right, McCain votes for war and boots on the ground every chance he gets, but could he be mad about something else too?
John McCain is a war hero, and some on the left are calling him they’re only chance.

McCain may be winning some new fans among Democrats, he is not winning over Trump supporters. Some believe he is now an “enemy of the state”.
I'm dropping the PRELUDE of saying, "John McCain" @SenJohnMcCain -He is LOSING IT! War hero or not previously, he is ENEMY OF STATE NOW! ?

John McCain support, like everything else in politics, is very divided right now and only time will tell if he is a political hero or traitor.
