Ring a bell, bring any one person to mind? TRUMP. I cannot speak for everyone, nor would I want to, but I am so ashamed of The President of The United States of America. How dare he not fully acknowledge a senator who was a hero and POW, received the Silver Star, Distinguished Flying Cross, Legion of Merit with a combat “V” and one gold star, Bronze Star with a combat “V” and two gold stars, and let us not forget a PURPLE HEART for being wounded in Vietnam. Trump had to be SHAMED into flying our most precious symbol, THE AMERICAN FLAG, at half-staff.
Some idiot will write in “he doesn’t have to.” You are right, but obviously you are “petty,” too. It is called RESPECT. My husband and I lined our yard with small flags and placed a larger one in our flagpole at half-staff.
Rest in peace, Senator McCain.
